About Us
Pogo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pogo
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Potbellied Pig
Home: Jacksonville, Florida, USA
   Pogo came into our lives at four weeks old. We got her from a back yard breeder. Little did we know how she would change our life. She thinks she is a person. In fact she won't have anything to do with other pigs. She won't even stand next to one.

    We take Pogo everywhere with us. She likes to go where there are lots of other people. She likes the Park, shopping at Petsmart, and going to the beach. Pogo is a house pig. Very clean, no odor. She has her own bed, toys, sleeping bag, tent, and kiddy pool. Her playmates are a hound dog and a cat, but she likes people the best.

    I show Pogo once a year at the fair. She always does really well. She likes the costume part the best. She knows that she is cute and plays it up to the judge. It's Pogo's love for people that allows me to be able to take her to Day-cares, Schools, and Nursing Homes. She brings a smile to everyone she meets, and I love her.
