This is Rosie, she came to us from a military family that was being relocated and were unable to take her. The short story is that they struggled with finding her a new home (they didn't want to rehome her to a family with small children), less than a week before their move a friend brought her to my attention and I couldn't resist reaching out. She's between 2 1/2 and 3 years old, my home is her 3rd, and she was born with only one eye. She has some health issues I'm trying to work out but overall she's a bright little girl with a very sweet demeanor.
With regard to her health, I'm really hoping that the issues are nothing too serious. When her family dropped her off they outlined what they'd been feeding her and her diet was VERY heavy on greens. They dropped her off with as much fresh food items as I would feed my own pigs in a whole week. Just before they left they warned me that she often had soft poops and not to worry because that was normal for her. She has VERY soft poops, not liquid, but certainly not normal. I've decided to restrict veggies and fruits for a few days before calling the vet, just to see if the soft poops are a result of diet. She also drinks a TON of water, I am hoping it is because she'd had a salt lick (which I took away immediately).
Hi everyone! I suppose it's been a while, hasn't it? Summertime has been so enjoyable that I've found it hard to find the time to write.
I've been spending lots of time outdoors munching on grass and sunning myself on the deck. I've also had the pleasure of eating lots of in-season treats like wild blueberries and strawberries - PLUS the human has been growing kale, apples, cucumbers and celery for me. It all tastes so fresh and delicious! Of course I share with the other piggy residents too.
I was enjoying the snuggles but the "selfies" distracted her from giving me scritches, which I much prefer. To help return her focus to me I peed on her housecoat. My plan didn't work as I'd hoped...
