    Beth, you and Jack are gluttons for animal adventures! What a lovely story about a little lost piggy wiggy. I and many others are going to follow Nap’s adventure with interest. Are you going to have him castrated to avoid any further run ins with the chasseurs?

    Aww, that is just the loveliest rescue story. Little Nap is just too cute. What a gorgeous face. I’m so pleased you and Jack have given him a home, but then I wouldn’t have imagined you doing anything else.

    Do you employ a full time vet? Or are your vetinary visits getting less and less as your experience grows?

    Heh heh heh, thanks so much, Cathy, I'm sure many folks would do the same in our position. I'll be happy to share his ongoing adventures as they develop. 🙂

    Heh heh heh, we are, Colin! Thanks so much for reading my tale. We have no current plans to castrate him as he will live in a spot where hunting is prohibited. Actually, if he stays a similar size it'll probably be in the fenced area surrounding the pheasant pens, that way he'll have lots of shelter and company. 🙂

    You know us too well, Val. No, we couldn't possibly ignore an animal in need. Thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed his story. Little Nap'll be properly looked after with us. 🙂

    Excellent question, Nicholas, thank you. I spend so much time at our local clinic that Jack says we might as well employ a full-time vet! With their advice and various potions, we do treat minor ailments/injuries. However, we are not vets. If we have any doubts whatsoever I will always refer to our medical specialists.

    I sent this story to my daughter, Salome Mengel, who is crazy about pigs. She has a 3-year old potbelly, Dejha, who is such a delightful piggy. and Dejha loves to cuddle under blankets, too.
