They are such brave boys. I heard of a pig or pigs supposedly dying of fright after hearing firecrackers go off. Then, the other day I cut Pellegrino’s butt fur. I took off my skirt as I didn’t want him urinating on it. We both ended up screaming. I actually screamed louder due to the huge scratch marks on my bare legs.
Pepino is such a funny guy. I had a Buffalo Wild Wings bag on the floor and he crawled right into it. I could have just carried him off in it as it had a handle on it. Uber Eats bags are a blessing--I can hide the piggy carriers in them and carry them in an Uber without them being detected.
Honestly, I never would have thought of adopting a PEW until I got Pandora almost 15 years ago. After Lightning died I was on my way to an adoption event in Virginia when I stopped at the Alexandria shelter where I got Pippin. They had a baby PEW girl named "Hannah" who hadn't been there very long and wasn't even on any web site. I looked at her just to be polite and thought "she's cute and she gets along well with Pippin."
A few days before Pepsi died (I had no idea it was coming) and I thought of Pandora, who had died almost three years before that and how I if I got a chance to adopt another PEW I would. Then when Pepsi died I found Pepino, his mom, four other siblings and I think some other PEW's at the Fairfax County shelter. Pandora is on the left, Pepsi is on the right:
