Ernie, The Incredibly Hairy Laughing Pig by 


By popular demand….
I managed to take my terrier Tarn for a short walk yesterday to visit the pig field near us..this was the first pig she’d ever seen…
After asking everyone for a name, one has finally been chosen,courtesy of peechez from Minnesota. Ernie is her dad. Here is what she said to make me decide.
“Last year he had to have a valve replacement surgery. He was 82 and not the strongest so it was a scary time. They put in a pig heart valve and it saved his life. He is still here with us and, ever since, pigs have had a special meaning to us. When I seen your hairy pig photo, it reminded me of dad in a special way. All it needs is some flannel and a hat”
So here’s to you Ernie the Dad
