Year of the Pig

Writing about all things porcine reminded me of a time when we used to pig-sit at university.

Every weekend, a small, black pot-bellied pig would come and stay for the day while her owner went scuba diving. She had the run of our student house, and her favourite pastime was pushing a plastic bottle filled with water around the 1970s-era carpet with her snout.

Life as a student had lots of ups and downs, but having a pig to play every Saturday was definitely a highlight.
