Of Course, An Australian PigDog!

It appears that The Aussie Porker In Question, AKA “Miss Pig,” thinks she’s….a dog. According to The Telegraph, “She eats with the dogs, hops into bed with them and makes all sorts of noises that are more like a dog.”

Mags Z. sent us this bootaful story via  The Telegraph of Maisie the Goat at Maria’s Animal Shelter in Probus, Cornwall. Maisie suffers from arthritis and has to wear wellington boots to help her condition. Recent downpours have left 12-year-old Maisie constantly squelching around in puddles and mud. So her keepers have provided pink wellies to protect her from foot rot – the animal equivalent of trench foot.
