And three big Piggyversaries this year:
15 years ago in April I adopted Lighting (my avatar pig). Pippin/Thunder followed a little more than a month later. Ten years ago in August I adopted Perpetua.
And the rest (but not less!)
February--Two years ago that I adopted Pellegrino.
January--13 years ago that I adopted Pandora.
July--Four years ago that I adopted Pepino
August--Six years ago that I adopted Pepsi
September--Seven years ago that I adopted Puzzle
November--Pellegrino's birthday and six years ago that I adopted Patapsco
Pepino is five years old today!
Also, it was fourteen years ago last month that I adopted "baby" Pandora and 16 years ago this month that I adopted Lightning, my avatar pig.
Lightning was such a little darling he didn't remain alone for long. However if Thunder (Pippin) had been a first pig he'da been an only pig and my next pet would have been a rabbit.
My boys are such funny little creatures. The other day we had major work done on the house. The contractor assured my landlady the pigs would be safe but the noise might bother them. About an hour or so I peeped downstairs and Pepino was actually eating as though nothing were going on. Poor Pellegrino was TERRIFIED--would not come out of the pigloo for quite a while, even for treats. He and Pepsi were probably the most hyper pigs I've had.
