She's so lucky you rescued her! Looking forward to those videos!

It's so great to hear that Annie is making such fantastic improvement. It must have been maddening to have mites and ringworm and not be able to scratch! I think she has found a gem of a slave in you and you, a gem of a pig in her. Well done!

What a lucky pig to have found you! I'm curious about the ringworm. Did your vet use the Program for that?

I don't remember. I'll have to ask--I think she went in for another shot last week, or it may be this week. I'll check...

So, here's that video of Annie walking...I'm sorry it's sort of darkish, but you can get the general idea of it. And yes. That is Spongebob you're hearing in the background. *wink* Oh, and don't listen to my voice in it, it sounds funny. :p

If it won't play, let me know and I'll take a different one.

EDIT-I'll have to take a different one later, where the lighting is better. There's one shot where you can see her-sort of-using her legs.

But, yeah, I'll get a better one soon.

I'm so happy she's able to get around! I bet she'll improve even more with time.

Go Annie!

Looks like she's made significant progress.

I would be very very careful in how she was handled. Either handle her yourself or instruct an older child how to carefully support both the front and back when picking her up. Because you don't know precisely what caused this, I'm sure you don't want to reinjure her.
