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.

The Runt Drops by

I heard a rattle at the front door and before I knew it the Runt had let himself in. He thought it would be nice to share some of Gage's food. He has taken to demanding special feedings. Besides wanting to come in the house to eat the dog and cat food, he wants special feed outside. While the other pigs are competing for the food I give them the Runt will just lie down and rest for he knows he can eat whenever he wants. He follows me around the yard until I give him his private food portion out of sight of the other piglets.

As you can see the Runt has grown. I suspect he now weighs 100 pounds.

We have had some hot weather. You can see the dirt on the Runt's coat from wallowing in a mud hole to cool off.

Remember when he really was a runt.

There was a time he would share the couch with Gage.

When outside Gage likes to chase the Runt a little. But in the house he just watches him with distain. Like myself, Gage is pretty laid back .

100 lbs! Oh MY! We just weighed our latest possum babies, 200 grams. The big ones are up to 2 lbs, almost ready to be released!
The runt wanting to get "special treatment" reminded me of our cat Snuffy who still wants baby food even tho his tongue has healed quite nicely as proven when he swiped Hadji's treat of left over prime rib. How do they get this spoiled?????????????

He really is out-growing the 'runt' tag now isn't he. I like how Gage appears to be spreading himself over the sofa...just in case the 'runt' tries to muscle in on his turf!
Both Gage and Runt are looking good Philip! :o)

He is certainly no Runt now... you did very well with him.. Gage is also a great dog for taking a shine to him.. It dose not seem that long since the weather was so cold there..

All the best

He has grown into a handsome pig! Seems he has trained you well on feeding procedures. LOL

How cute! Gage looks much happier having the couch to himself.

He has grown into such a handsome gentleman. He may need a new name though. Like Rambo.

I've had people drop by that weren't near as sweet and welcome as Runt looks to be!
