Treats – It’s a Pig Life


Any time I get treats, it’s a good day for me.  Mom went to the market this past weekend and bought me all kinds of treats to stock me up.  She *always* brings me back something good to eat.  This week was no different.

When mom and dad go to the market, afterwards they bring all of these grocery bags into the kitchen.  I get to watch as they put everything up knowing that I have stuff too.  After everything is put away, mom usually takes my things and cuts everything up in one day.  She puts them in buckets in the refrigerator.  This is where me, the sous chef, comes in to play 🙂  She will give me tasty little morsels to try.  And trust me, they are so good!

After she cuts everything up (usually carrots, celery, watermelon or some other fruit and my salad mix), she will fix me a bowl as a snack.  Today’s menu consisted of grapes, Goldfish and watermelon rind.  I’ve tried watermelon before but someone told mom that pigs like the rind as well.  Whoever you are you sweet dear person for telling mom this, I love you.  It is delicious and I’ve been eating every since!  Good thing mom’s dad doesn’t have a garden anymore.  I would be in hog heaven and never leave!  Snorts

Mom and dad let me eat on my food carpet in the front room. So in this picture don’t fear the “dirty carpet”, it’s my feed mat.  They pick it up and wash it every week.  As you can see, I am chomping down on that watermelon rind.  Mom took this picture of me in mid chomp.  I usually will eat what I like the most first.  Of course, it was the rind.  I couldn’t get enough of it.  You bite into it and the watermelon juice actually squirts inside of your mouth.  That’s my favorite part.

I guess you can say I’m a little spoiled.  Not a lot – just a little.  What do you think?  What’s your favorite treat?
