LOOK INTO MY EYES

"A cat will look down to you.


A dog will look up to you.

But a pig will look you straight in the eye and see his equal."
Winston Churchill

I don't know any pigs personally, but I think I'm going to have to get acquainted with some!

My neighbor has a pot bellied pig. He doesn't consider me his equal. He'd like to knock me down and eat me.

NOW THAT IS THE TRUTH!!! After years and years and years of raising pigs I know!

Yup, becoming more true every bloody day- all pink and fat and sassy- I had a pet pig- she was way smarter than I- and more agile- she even had cuter babies.

Wonderful - Winston was a very wise man!!

Great post - great quote. But the pig is the only one we'd eat - makes you think!

I love this! I told some of the children about the boy riding two horses at once-I physically demonstrated-they didn't believe me I am quite sure-I will try to remember to show them the picture tomorrow!
Also-to answer your question-I think this is the very platter we had!-

The link didn't work-but it was to the site of Marks and Spencers-they are a food/clothing and home store-and do great take away food and ready meals. Though today I was not so impressed with them-more on that in the blog!

Also-I will have to try out the pig thing! If I can find one!

Oh classic!! I still have a pig (half Pot Belly). I raised them for a little while. I could share a story about that!
Beautiful series of puddy and dog Leenie- is that your sweet piggy?

I love the black kitty - looks like my girl, Shadow. The pig thing is interesting...

What a great quote to find. Sounds true to me. Peace.

I have always liked pigs. I would have liked one as a pet, but I am not sure whether it is cruel to keep a pig in the house. I mean, are they like dogs in that respect? Happy as long as you take them for long walks and give them treats and lots of love? But Snous would probably not like a pig as companion, I think.

Actually, seeing Jill's comment above, I realsie that if I had a pig I would have to stop eating bacon! And I do so love a bit of bacon ...
