Thankful Thursdays: In Praise of a Pig

By
Real Estate Agent with Prado Real Estate South UT DRE# 6541633-SA00

Southern Utah Miss Prissy - WKNA pig is a jolly companion,
Boar, sow, barrow, or gilt --
A pig is a pal, who'll boost your morale,
Though mountains may topple and tilt.

When they've blackballed, bamboozled, and burned you,
When they've turned on you, Tory and Whig,

Though you may be thrown over by Tabby and Rover,
You'll never go wrong with a pig, a pig,
You'll never go wrong with a pig!

~ Thomas Pynchon, Gravity's Rainbow

 

This is in honor of Miss Prissy, my birthday pig. I can be having the worse day possible and after a few minutes with her, it no longer matters. Thank you Miss Prissy!

Well Wanda, I guess you really love your pig.  I don't think our zoning rules would allow them as pets around here.

Wanda - I couldn't have a pig for a pet, I like bacon and ham too much. Miss Prissy is cute though, for a pig;^)

Thank Judy, I'm glad you're smiling! Thanks for stopping by!

Gabe, You'd definitely want to check your CCRs or zoning before getting one! Have a great day!

Mike, Ha-ha! I have to admit, I have cut down on pork products since getting her!

My family has been looking for a pig for years and can't find one that sells the size pig you have pictured. We keep getting these pigs who promise to grow to 200 lbs plus, we are just looking for a pot belly that only grows to 50-100lbs. (Where did you find yours? We may have to travel!)

Ha-ha! Thanks Debi! She is a cutie!

Todd, We bought Miss Prissy here in St. George from a woman who breeds them. Our male Bacon we bought at a pet store in town. Miss Prissy is about the size of a small cocker spaniel and Bacon is a little bigger than that. We have 7 babies and they are 12 weeks old. (2 females - 5 males)
