Against All Oinks

Woof! Look up in the sky! It’s a flying pig!
Really? Oink! Where? Where?
Ha, ha, made you look!
Snort. I could fly you know, if I didn’t always fall for it.

Robert R. tells us, “This is my friend’s dog, Malachy. He lives on a large farm and he is the only dog; he was quite lonely. A few days ago my friend had a call – would he like a pig? He hesitantly said yes. He thought he was getting a garden-variety piggy; he was quite surprised when Stella showed up. He was even more surprised when Stella ran up to Malachy and the two started romping around! They are now best buds.”



  1. i love the dog’s expression. “oh stella, you so funny.”

  2. oink, oink…. woof! woof!

  3. What kind of piggy is Stella? She’s so pretty!

  4. Schweinhund!

  5. Mary (the first) says:

    I don’t even know what to say.. very cute indeed! And I love the name Stella. If only the dog were named Stanley….

  6. Jawohl!

  7. They look so happeeeeeeeeee….

  8. Stella is an exceptional name for this pig. What a cool looking animal!

  9. Because it has to be said…..STELLLLLLLL-AAAAAAA!

    And, threadjack: a new Simon’s Cat! (hoping this imbedding works!)

  10. videos are necessary!

  11. Oh well….

  12. I love the spots on the pig’s ‘tocks. Too bad this picture wasn’t run during Tocktober.

  13. Hm, testing, testing

  14. speckled piggeh! speckled piggeh!

  15. Seconded! Inquiring minds want to know!

  16. Too funny! I just told someone about Simon’s Cat today at work, and there’s a new one out! Yay!!!

  17. That was my thought, too. Who would have thought a pig and a dog would hit it off so quickly? 🙂

  18. Malachi my father in-laws first name, you don’t see that name very often. I think he would of approved of sharing his name with that lovely dog.

  19. @:Wend, it’s not really that much of a surprise. After all, it’s a known fact that dogs LOVE bacon… 🙂

  20. oh lordy, it sure is 5 o’clock… I read ‘imbedding’ as ‘imbibing’ 😀

  21. *whispers to Mod Lounge bartender* I think it’s time to cut tracylee off from the martinis…..

  22. Heheheheheh! *hic*

  26. I’m glad Malachy’s got a buddy. He looks like a genuine good dawg.

  27. A calico pig! Squeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

  28. noooo I loves my martoonies 🙂
    and my G&Ts
    and my beerskis
    and… and… *hic*

  29. Oh goshdarnit, you beat me to the STELLAAAAAAA! I was so hoping someone else would be thinking that!

  30. That’s what it looks like to me, too. Stella’s such a pretty pig, too. She’s got everything!

  31. This city kid has never seen a pig with wacky colorings like that. Neat!

  32. Stella has the most beautiful coloring I’ve evair seen on a peegeh !! Appaloosa peeg…

    The slow breath in the squeaky-toy takes is genius.
