Thanks for the link. I hadn't seen that site before. There is a lot of thought-provoking information there.

Apparently Esther was misrepresented to the couple as a "mini pig", but she wasn't! In this fortunate case, they kept her, but in other cases people who have been misled dump the poor pig when it gets too big, or have it killed. It always pays to check carefully before buying. In addition, any person considering buying a pig as a pet should think carefully whether the required conditions are satisfied. There is good advice at http://kb.rspca.org.au/Can-pigs-be-kept-as-pets_111.html

Ah, what cute photos! She has settled in so well, and is so lucky to have found such caring humans.

And there's a message there for people.

Give her a name and get to know her and that is the result - love, friendship, understanding, compassion & empathy.

Had they not given her a name and got to know her, she'd have ended up like any other pig - pork chops and bacon.

Given the chance any other pig could become like Esther ...
