Oh wow, I guess I missed this whole thread! Omd, piglets! The video is tiny, but I could make them out racing around the pen.. how totally adorable! 

I know it is still hard, but I also know that Roane could NOT have her mama unable to laugh. I am really happy that she sent that back to you. You deserve that, Bev sp_hearticon2

I have never lived on or near a farm, but as much work as it is, it sounds like a lot of fun too. My husband grew up on a farm so I have heard many a story. I am so glad your little piglet is doing ok now. OMD … I just had a visual of what Bo would be like there 😜😜😜 He would be in herding heaven, heheh!

Would love to see more photos. It was so good to hear from you sp_hearticon2 

Sending you much love sp_hearticon2

My Beautiful Beloved Brownie was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma on February 26, 2019.  With all odds against him he lived an additional one year and eight days with amputation, love, and prayer.  I was honored to be his mom, and I have never been so proud!  He will live forever in my Heart!

Oh my dog that is adorable! What a good girl!

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
