is the love of my life,
she is very intelligent and makes me laugh. She does tricks for you
and is very clever. She loves to snuggle up with you while watching
TV and I don't think of her as just a pet she is family and has a
very special personality. Mariah only wears her harness when we go
for walks or when she goes outside to potty. Some of the tricks that
Mariah likes to do is sit, beg, and pirouettes. She will jump up on
command and go potty on command.
She is so clever that I have to baby proof my kitchen drawers and
cabinets so she can't open them, she will use her nose to pull open
the drawers and cabinet doors. If the doors are left opened then she
will rearrange my kitchen. (giggle) Mariah lives in the house with
us, as she is part of the family. She is a Mini Potbellied Pig and
she weights only around 90 pounds.
I never thought I would ever own a pig, yet alone have one in my
house. But, one day when I was working, one of my customers showed me
a picture of their pet pig and I thought that was the cutest thing
I'd ever seen. Then one day she said she knew where there was a
litter of Potbellies and that was all it took for me to fall in love
with these little guys. I went to see the babies and Mariah was
looking straight at me and I know she was for me. You can see her at
my web site,
she has her own Pigture Album and I have pictures of her as she
grows up, so you can see the difference in size. It takes time
to load, so be patient please. Mariah is a special pig!
