Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Strange Bedfellows

Gage and the Runt are trying to share the chesterfield.

I thought the runt had finally decided he was indeed a hog rather than a house cat. Last night he stayed with the rest of the piglets partially buried in the hay while we had a dramatic rainstorm.
He seemed happy rooting around with them all day.
This evening he showed up at the front door and Dave let him in. After trying to nest in a bag of sawdust I had in the corner of the kitchen, which is now widely scattered, he decided to try the chesterfield, which Gage also likes to lie on.
I think they look like an old married couple that have had a dispute and are now sleeping back to back. They started out facing one onother but the Runt kept trying to get closer to Gage by rooting in behind him. Gage gave up and got off the chesterfield only to get on the other end. It seem an accomadation has been reached.

How adorable ! I think it is a very rare picture to see a dog sleeping together with a little pig ! That pig is really something special !

So darn cute. I suppose he won't come in one night after rooting with the other pigs, and your couch will be saved.

Good Grief! These two have a hard life don't they! *shakes head*

The runt and the dog,
The hound and the hog,
Friends or Foe?
They don't really know!
Sworn enemies or hugging friends?
While they sleep they make amends..

They do look like they have reached an amicable agreement (is it detente or entente? I get confused).

LOL That is so darn cute. I think the runt will one day realize he is a pig, but then maybe not. It seems you have another pet with which to share your home.

Sorry I haven't been over in while. Life has been hectic here.
