The Famous Pig Poll
Witch famous piggy do you like the most?
Deservedly acclaimed as one of 1998's best films, this sequel to the beloved 1995 live-action fantasy proved a commercial catastrophe and a source of dismay to parents expecting another bucolic, sweet-natured fable.
Wilbur the pig is scared of the end of the season, because he knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen.
I have been asked to add Arnold Ziffel from Green Acres to my page. So, here you go! Anyway, Arnold Ziffel (a cute pig from Green Acres) is (supposively) the son of Fred and Doris Ziffel. Arnold gets to do pretty much anything he wants. He can do alot of amazing things as well! Some of those things are playing the piano, drinking for a straw, delivering letters from the mail box, and to turn the channels on the television. He loves Westerns and THE CBS EVENING NEWS with Walter Cronkite. More things he can do is to predict weather with his little curly tail, and play cricket with his own miniature cricket bat.
Like any regualr boy, Arnold goes to school. At school he likes to play practical jokes on the other students! Also Arnold delivers newspapers, and enjoys to sending away for various mail-order products. Another amazing thing the little pig can do is that he can write his name! He can also speak an impressive number of languages - English, French, and a touch of Japanese.
The only person in Hooterville who can't seem to make sense of Arnold is, of course, Oliver. Oliver seems to mostly dislike the little piggy. Although he eventually warms up to the anthropomorphic pig. Going so far as to represent Arnold in court. While Arnold's actual age is never specified, he exists in a perpetual childhood somewhere between third grade and puberty.
Isn't Arnold one amazing and very talented pig?

Did you know that George Clooney had a pot bellied pig named Max?
Pot bellied pig are the most common pig for people to have as a pet. They weigh 30-200 pounds. Max was a Vietnamese black bristled, pot bellied pig, and his weight was 300 pounds! Max crawled into Georges life in the late 1980s. He lived with him in the actor's Hollywood Hills home. Sometimes they shared a bed together. Max had a massive appetite and would squeal every morning until he was fed. Their relationship was strong. Max is often credited with saving Clooney's life by waking him up before an earthquake in Los Angeles on January 16, 1994. In 2006 the pig was taken for a flight in John Travolta's private jet!
Max suffered from arthritis and failing sight. George owned Max for 18 years. Sadly, he died December 1, 2006 at the age of 19.
Clooney told USA Today that "He was as old a pig as the vets had ever seen. I was really surprised, because he's been a big part of my life."

Pigs as Pets
Taking care of a Potbellied Pig
The most popular pig for a pet is the potbellied pig. Unfortunately, some cities/towns do not allow you to have a pig.
If you are planing to get a potbellied pig you should...
1. Check your town/cities zoning laws to make sure you can get one.
2. Make sure you will be ready to comitt to take care of your pig for 12-15 years.
3. Do you have a dog? If so think of the possibility of your dog attacking your pig.
If you go to a rescue center or a shelter they will be more than happy to give you a pig for no cost. (Some have small adoption fees.) Some pigs will sell for large amounts because they come from a special breed line.
Is your pig not right for you?
If you choose to sell your pig take a close look at who your are selling your pig to. Make sure your pig is going to live with a caring and loving family or environment. Make sure your client will not make your pig for dinner, use him/her for experiments, or use him/her for target practice. (All of these have happened before!) Make sure the pig you are selling will live a save and happy life at his/her new home.

Is National Pig Day!
Did you know that March 1st is the offical pig day? National Pig Day was started by Texas art teacher Ellen Stanley in 1972 to honor and give thanks to our most intelligent domesticated creature.
On this day, remember the good things pigs have brought to us. We remember that pigs are sociable and intelligent mammals. They are much like us in many ways. One thing is that they have noticable personality traits and soaring emotions. You might want to visit a farm sometime in March for a day out (with the kids of course) and pay your respects to these marvelous animals.
There are also many indoor activities you can do to celebrate pig day! One of them is to try and stick to a pink theme for the day: clothes, decorations, paper plates etc. You can also play pin the tail on the pig. Why not create your own version of The Three Little Pigs? In a group by taking turns making up each part of the story!
