A Pig in a Park

Yeh, so, Great Danes were originally bred in Germany to hunt boar (and deer).  However, it appears that Zuma is lacking a few genes  in that department.  We met this porcine pal at the Park yesterday morning and Zuma only wanted to meet Mr. Pig and hang out with him and share a lovely sunny Sunday morning together and  vice versa. You’ve heard of a pig in a poke? well, this was a pig in a park!  Please pardon me for being a hopeless romantic, but doesn’t this just show we can ALL get along in this world, even during these troubled times?

They met, sniffed noses and were immediate buddies.  Sheesh, if you think traveling with a Great Dane is not a crowd magnet, try walking a pig in a park.  The combination quickly attracted a crowd and many selfies were taken.  These two didn’t care about the pig paparazzi, they were totally into each other.  Mr. Pig is one cool and well-socialized hog, a fine ambassador for all porcines. After meeting him, a woman sadly exclaimed, “I don’t think I’ll ever eat bacon again”.  This made me smile.  It also made me toss out the bacon in the fridge.

Mr. Pig is “just a pig” his owners told me; he’s not a pampered pot-bellied pet, he’s a real PIG.  Housetrained and leash-trained, he is adored by his owners and regularly exercised; he gobbles up all the attention offered to him.  No ego, just a cool animal living a good life, doing his pig thing.  In a High Life kinda style. He really enjoyed his morning romp yesterday and we hope we’ll meet him and his fun family again.
