Growing Up

Well on this National Pig Day I must reflect. I’m 6 months old now.

I’ve experienced my first fall and my first winter. I’ve grown from a mere 1 pound to now 26 pounds. I’ve grown closer to my mom. I know when she is playing and I know when she means business according to the tone of her voice.

In fact, today I begged dad to call her at work. You ask how I did this? In the past, I’ve seen dad use his portable phone to call mom. So today, I kept nudging the phone towards him. After some persuasion, he finally caught on. 🙂 he called mom and let me talk to her. She talked to me and I oinked at her. She had me on speaker phone so other people in the office could hear us. It was fun.

I’ve learned tricks… Sit, roll over, go to bed and go to your room. Heck, sometimes when I get sent to my room for time out I’ve been know to slam my door LOL

Which all of this brings me to the question. Do all other little pigs have it made like me? I mean I have room service. I have turn down service at now when I get tucked into bed. I have my own room. I have my own television with cable. My meals are prepared for me. I get a piggy massage every day.

You’re probably asking yourself, “Self, what is national pig day?”. Well, I’m glad you asked. 🙂

National Pig Day

National Pig Day is an event held annually on March 1 in the United States to celebrate the pig. The holiday celebration was started in 1972 by sisters Ellen Stanley, a teacher in Lubbock, Texas, and Mary Lynne Rave of Beaufort, North Carolina.

According to Rave, the purpose of National Pig Day is “to accord the pig its rightful, though generally unrecognized, place as one of man’s most intellectual and domesticated animals.”
