But pigs are probably the most underestimated animals of all. A lot of people are used to thinking about them as dirty little beings, who would just eat whatever is given to them (the irony!) and bathe in dirt all day long.
“She definitely behaves as though she is one of the dogs,” piggie’s ‘mom’ Alissa told Mashable. “She spends every hour of the day with them, plays with them like a dog, she naps with them. If the dogs run at the gate to bark at something in the street, she races with them.”
Before Olive’s ‘parents’, Alissa and Nick Childs, got the piggie, they already had 4 dogs and soon, a human baby on its way.
At first the family was a bit concerned how Olive would get on with their French bulldog Lola, but they could have never guessed that the two would become best friends. ”Lola took the role of Olive’s adopted Mum & it was so beautiful to see,” Alissa wrote on her website.
