||Two years old |

is a pot bellied pig. His parents, Ms. Piggy and Kermit are lying on
the floor behind him. Jump is a local celebrity in the nursing home where I
work. When he was smaller everyone had to have their pictures made with
him. During his last visit, we had to put him in a shopping cart to let him
visit all the rooms, due to his size and the slick floors.
He sits very patiently for treats. He prefers to be fed from our plate with
a fork, you see, jump does not realize he is a pig - he thinks he is human.
If he gets cold at night, he will jump up on the side of our bed and pull
the blankets off the bed so he can get warm. Before he got so big, he would
jump into the waterbed with us and try to root us out of bed. He makes
different sounds to inform us of his needs, he cries if he does not get his
morning belly rub, he squeals if he thinks he is being ignored, and hollers
like a banshee if he thinks he is being mistreated.
