They call me "The Boss." For good reason, too! I was born to be a rebel, and nobody's gonna keep me from doing what I want, when I want, where I want. Not even The Man! Bam The Man! (That's how the expression goes, right? Ha! I don't need to ask you. I know everything!) Bam!

Image

Here's the rules. 1. Don't look at me unless I give you permission.

Image

2. Give me extra hay all the time. Grass works too. Fresh = good.

Image

3. Don't hog the camera. Someday I'm gonna be the front-man for a super awesome post-punk revival band and I need ALL the exposure I can get.

Image

4. Lastly? I don't do laundry.

Image

HEY! Did I say you could look at me? Shoo! Go on!

Big Burr is such a cutie, JadeMagpie! I wonder if he's interested in sending a couple photos for my next year's calendar possibility folder?

(I think he secretly loves the attention)! I think Burr would love to send some photos for next years calendar possibility folder. I had better not tell him yet, or else he'll want a photo shoot.

As soon as Burr realized that there's this big world to discover, he absolutely will not sit still any more. He MUST explore. He makes this low "hut-hut-hut" sound as he walks and will chew on anything that is chewable. Sometimes he'll talk real loud as he walks around. He'll rumble at just about anything that's annoying or that he hasn't heard before. It used to be that you couldn't even LAUGH without him rumbling with disapproval. Hence the name "Burr."

He used to be the big-pig King of the C&C until Dandelion totally outgrew him, but he still rumble struts around like he's big stuff!

I had one pig that made those noises when she walked around. I adored hearing her!

The second from top and last picture are both possibilities. Be sure to take lots more photos!

My abby Rosie, is constantly chattering. It used to annoy Jasper, but now he ignores her.

Burr resembles Alden's Ouiser.

Burr is adorable. You can tell he's a super confident pig - wow, exploring and all. My girls just want to sit in their hidies when they have floor time. Love looking at all the photos.

Burr decided to commission a painting to be used as propaganda to support his "I'm not sassy, I'm cute! Now make me a bed of hay five feet deep and bring me a golden dish of carrots!" campaign.

So, as his dutiful slave/butler/jester/cage-cleaner/gardner/artist-in-residence, I decided to get to work post haste!

Here are the results of our painting session this afternoon:

Image

Burr and his Assistant approve -- but only because they do not have thumbs to hold a paintbrush (and therefor cannot paint!):

Image

The gold border will dry into a crackled finished! I am sure Burr will be the subject of many paintings (and photographs) to come. I have to work from pictures because he will NOT sit still.

I like the painting and how you've chosen to do it. Burr shd be very proud his mum is so talented.

It's weird how much Burr looks like ouiser!

I know! They both have that white swirly strip on their noses, and they're the orange, brown, white mix that you don't see all that often. I kinda want to put them side by side and look at them.

How much does Ouiser weigh I wonder?

I love rebellious pig! My Ginger is one of such and I admit I am kinda biased towards her :p

I love all the close-ups you have of Burr. Seems like he enjoys phototaking and looking his best for the pictures.

And spoken like a truly spoilt man-pig: I don't do laundry!
