Doggy Pigs! Haha

A few years ago we had two show pigs. We live out in the country. But we would walk them out in the road. We wouldn't walk them if it was loose gravel because we didn't want them injured. But we experienced our first car driving by! Let me tell you, they run off chasing the car, "barking" at the car! Hahaha We could never get them to stop after that!:)

    Well if you treat them like dogs then they will act like dogs, ho, ho.
    Most of mind, unless they are accustomed to the noise ie a tractor, would run away.:D

    Haha, thanks for sharing. I can only imagine how some of the drivers feel when they look back at the pigs chasing after them. It is something I'd love to see at least once. It's sort of funny how pigs often take on the roles of dogs.
