  3. Good luck with the giveaway, you are such a kind and loving person!!!

  4. What a nice print of Charlie the pig! You have a nice blog with lots of good pig info.


  5. That's SOME pig! I love that painting! It reminds me of a book I saw this weekend that I just added to my Wish List called The Good Good Pig.

    I like the article Noah's Ark-- Meet the Kids. My questions is: Is he wrinkly, because he's lost so much weight? Or is that his "breed"?

  7. nfmgirl yes he is wrinkled because he was a major over weight. happens when they loss the weight to fast sometimes they go the other way and you cannot get the weight on them

  10. Wow, I agree, the painting is so beautiful and full of good energy!!!! ;0) I love the photos you posted of the piggies choosing the winner, that is such a unique, wonderful, and pig friendly idea.

  11. Hi Shannon. Thanks for letting me know about the giveaway. I read all the posts on the first page. I love that your blog is filled with products for pigs and handmade items from not only yourself but fellow artists. Your candles are beautiful.

  12. Hi Shannon. I love all your finds on the little piggies.. they are so cute the hat and little crochet piggies.. just lovely..

  13. Great print! Love the colors :)

  14. In the mist of all of this swine flu, I hope your lil piggies are happy/healthy..and you too! :]

  15. I love the little piggy necklace from a fridge magnet, it's very cute, and I like the fact that you use it as something for you to wear, I'm very much into that, i often oput a keyring decoration on a chain as a necklave and things like that, also you write about other artists, which is cool and generous of you. Also (nearly done - I promise!)I love the way you help pigs, they are so often misunderstood, and are fabulous creatures. You rock!

  16. I love that painting too Shannon!! In fact i was able to save it and it caused me concern for the artist. If i can save it any one can and use it YIKES!!! Me thinks you girls should be putting something right accross your work like SAMPLE or soemthing.

  17. Holy Pigs!!!! this is a fabulous

  18. Hi Shannon,

    yet again I have been immersed in many of your articles on this amazing blog!
    I left a comment on the wonderful pig parenting article about Noah's Ark.
    I also enjoyed reading about the White Pig B & B - and now I know where the Waltons came from! plus I visited their website from the link and saw adorable pictures of their pigs!

    Many thanks for the beautiful painting you did for me on your last giveaway - of Leila the rescued pig! I hope she is well :)

    thanks again - you are an angel of hope and inspiration for the pigs, and the other animals,
    kind regards,

  19. I got my package today Shannon ;o))))))))))))))))
