Dog and Pig are Besties

04/13/2012

Here's an adorable story of an odd animal companionship that I just read on dogheirs.com.  A Kansas woman was driving down the road and saw something fly off of a truck that was ahead of her.  It turned out that the truck was carrying livestock and the thing that flew out was a tiny piglet.

And now, the piglet has a buddy and protector in the form of the family dog, Hunter.  They named the pig Mu Shu and have decided to keep her as another family pet. With so much horror going on the world, both for people and animals, it's nice to hear a story with a happy ending.

Here's a news report showing the two besties.  So cute!
