Oscar, the Pet of the Day
Name: Oscar
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Pot-bellied Pig
Home: Newhall, California, USA
   This is Oscar. He is a 110 pound male pot-bellied pig. Even though Oscar is a boy, he dressed as a woman for Halloween. Ever since Oscar's first Halloween, we have been dressing him up. From a ballerina to an angel to a woman, Oscar has always portrayed a female on October 31. One year he even wore a sports bra. Every day when I come home from school, he greets me with short rapid snorts and kisses. Every night he jumps on my bed, roots around for a couple of minutes and then settles down under the covers as close as he can get to my leg (sometimes on top).

    Although he occasionally rips up an assignment or two of mine, he is always there with moral support to help me make it up. Oscar is very intelligent as well. He can sit, stay, turn in a circle, unroll a carpet, push a toy will wheels and even graduated from, dog obedience class with top honors (he got a trophy). Oscar is the love of my life and I can't wait to take him to college with me.
