Pampering the Porcine Princess

Wynonna has spent so much time huddled in her pigloo this winter, I decided to treat her with some fresh bedding. Though I'm sure she would have preferred 600-threadcount Egyptian cotton sheets, what she got was a fresh bale of straw.



It was a rather chilly morning when I hauled out the old to bring in the new.




Wynonna grew quite concerned about where I might be taking her nest.




Hank popped over to supervise.




Then Deets wandered in, trying to figure out what in the heck Wynonna
was planning to do with all that straw.




Curly tails run in the family.



Wynonna pushed the straw around to her preferred degree of fluffiness
and settled in for her afternoon nap.


Wynonna, come out and say hello to all your friends. They've missed you.



Did they bring treats?

  1. Such a cute account of THE princess, but I knew by Picture 2 to put my coffee down ... SO glad I did too, as I have laughed and laughed over her antics, especially those last two pictures! That girl is something else!!!

  5. I didn't know pigs were den-seekers! Does she put the straw into the pigloo, or do you? Have you read "The Good, Good Pig"? It is very special. You would like it.

  8. Hahah those last two pictures are so priceless. Indigo is the same only she has to walk about the new straw to see if there possibly might be some hay in it before emptying her bladder. Goof.

  15. Netherfieldmom, I put the first layer of straw down in the pigloo, then Wynonna grabs big chunks in her mouth and carries the rest in.

    Breathe, Wynonna would walk to the end of the earth for a banana - they are her absolute favorite.

  16. Oh dear, now I think I am wanting a pig. I forget about Wynonna because she leads such a quiet life. She looks very happy with her new bedding. It's the simple things....

  20. PIGLOO! Oh, that is great, made me laugh. Wy looks very comfy in there.
    I also had to laugh about all the supervising going on.... never fails at our place, too, whenever we are trying to get something done.

  22. Heaven on earth! This would be a good, good day for any pig. But of course, not all pigs need a pink house...

  23. Oh, your crew reminds me so much of mine. As soon as someone starts a project, EVERYONE has to come investigate, supervise or otherwise get in the way. I have to say that I wouldn't mind being a piggy at your place; I just might hibernate all winter long with that kinda service!

  24. OH Wy..Wy...are you sure you are not a porcine version of Kirstie Alley? I can't wait to see that "large and in charge" gal in her new A&E show starting on March 21st. What a riot..and I'm sure she could learn a thing or two from Wynonna. Wy is a lady...too!
