What is it about pigs that are so appealing? Arnold the Pig from Green Acres, Babe the Pig from Babe, the pet pig from All Creatures Great and Small, Wilbur the pig from Charlotte's Web... Pigs are just so darned cute!
Sometimes I think it's the idea of a pig that's cute, especially when I see the pictures from this book of Christopher Hogwood when he was full grown. Would you really want to scratch Chris' back, at his 750 pound, mud-covered maximum weight? (Would you want to lay on his back, like the picture with Ned?) However, we all seem to love pigs.
