These are my adorable grand-piggies and their momma. About a week old they love to snuggle, run in circles and are already playing with each other. Since visiting them I have learned some facts about pigs which are pretty cool. Did you know that pigs are really smart? Their intelligence is actually higher than a dogs. Also, in their natural state they are really clean animals. They are also more tolerant of cold weather than they are heat because they don't have sweat glands. This is one of the reasons they love hanging out in the mud. It's keeps them cool. I also learned that if trained a piglet can actually learn their name at about two to three weeks old. They can also learn tricks faster than dogs and when they learn their name, when called, they will come. Pigs also have great memories. They can remember things for years and can also recognize and remember objects! I can't even remember what I had for breakfast some days!
They're just so darn cute and I could sit and watch them for hours. But, I couldn't take them with me back to Lake Arrowhead, so all six little piggies stayed home!
