    Haha. Only you could find a friend like Patrice, another animal lover. This story started my day off with a big smile. Sophie the punk pig sounds like a song title. Thank you Beth.

    Wonderful story, Beth. Patrice was fortunate not to be pulled overby the gendarmerie while Sophie was overloading his car! It would have made an interesting exchange! And then the red mane, what a sight to behold.

    Oh my goodness! A punk boar. I guess she eats regular food now? Does she have any dogs to play with? Does she have any pig friends? Loved this animal tale!

    Heh heh heh, true, Patti, I really couldn't make this stuff up! I am so glad it gave you a smile, you've made my day. And good point about the song title – we should explore that! 😀 x

    Thanks so much, Colin, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. You're right, we were all so worried about how he was going to transport her. :/ You can imagine our surprise when he turned up with her stuffed in the back of his tiny car! Yes, it was a strange tale alright, I'm so glad I had the pics to prove it all happened! 😀

    Heh heh heh, yep, we have our very own punk boar, Amy! Yes, we quickly weaned Sophie off dog food and she is now thriving in the wild. We haven't seen her with other boar but we expect that to happen soon. Thank you so much for reading the story, I'm so glad you enjoyed it. 😀

    What a marvellous tale, or should I say end to the tail :)) I love this…a punk boar. Only in your life, Beth! Thank you for introducing us to Sophie, your punk porker!

    😀 Thanks ever so much for reading my yarn, Val, it's a pleasure to introduce the lovely, colourful Sophie. Ha ha ha, I know, the strangest things happen in our lives here! It's just as well I took lots of pics otherwise I'm sure folks wouldn't have believed it!
