Winston Churchill once said, “Always remember, a cat looks down on man, a dog looks up to man, but a pig will look man right in the eye and see his equal.” While I (am biased and) don’t necessarily agree with the bit about cats, the rest is incredibly true. But what happens when one pig is adopted into a home with nine other rescues…seven of which are senior pups?
Well, that pig becomes part of the pack, too! But that doesn’t mean she loses all of her piggy tendencies…
There’s Bikini in the back, a four-year-old potbellied pig. She’s not always quite as invested in what Steve, her human, is doing, but she still likes to be around all of her brothers and sisters!
You're looking at a collective age of 99 years among all these guys. They are all healthy, happy and full of life. I try very hard not to take that for granted. Bikini 4 yrs, Enoch 5 yrs, Eeyore 13 yrs, Loretta 12 yrs, Englebert 8 yrs, Edna 12 yrs, Hercules 17 yrs, Madeline 17 yrs, and Phyllis 11 yrs. #99yearsandapupain't1
She loves a good snuggle when it’s time to catch their favorite Sunday night show, just like her canine counterparts.
She might show her piggy side a bit more when lunchtime rolls around…
But when a good cuddle by the fire is on the books, she joins her crew without hesitation.
She’s very obedient when it’s time to ride to the vet. She must be very health-conscious.
It’s hard for Steve to go anywhere in his house without running into one of his furry family members.
But he wouldn’t have it any other way!
The pups range in age from five to 17…
Oh, that ninth animal? It’s a bunny rabbit.
I can't even begin to count the number of animals and humans that have been on this chair. It's the least aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture that I have. No fancy designer, no clean lines, and the material is, well, …it's durable. But every night, 1 by 1 we all end up here. Stuart and Bikini #likemyfatherslazyboy

Definitely wasn’t expecting that fluffy rabbit — but with such a diverse family, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised!
Bikini sure is just one of the pups in this household! She’s ready to take a walk or have a cozy snuggle at the drop of hat.
