I was thinking the other day that since the first big rains I have had a pig for a neighbour. That may sound a bit harsh in these times , but it`s true.

She very often sits on her stoop, like a guard dog.

She treats my step as a food bowl if she gets an apple.

I might not see you  but I can smell food.

On the other side I get invaded by chickens, of which I am not impressed. They try to eat my seedlings and crap on my stoop and step. That`s why I have taken to the pig. They don`t crap on their own door step.

Then along comes the cat from my sons flat who treats me as a second home whenever he goes out.

Alice likes a brush every day, and a tick removal service. This usually starts after her breakfast, since the first day she has learned to change sides when the one side is finished. Pig being brushed by a friend.

Looking back towards the house you can see how close she likes to be. It was only because during the heavy rains she would not sleep in her old house but lay up against my stoop. It would rank as a shack but its waterproof and she has filled it with shade cloth and dry grass. Banana leaves have also been put in her bed and she seems to chew them from time to time.

I have my own car guard, she`s a real pig and sleeps on the job.  Sometimes she sleeps behind the car so there is no way to move until she does. Pigs can be very stubborn but I am stuck with her BPE credetials.
