On today’s episode of things we have to move in the office because the puppy wants to fight it... one gremlin meets another 😂 #Wilbur #Gremlins #ArmageddonExpo
Brought a new lizard friend in to the house this morning as a gift to the humans! As usual they did not appreciate my gift, and made me take it outside and set it free...
🐷 🕷 I just finished reading this to Miss 4 last night. We had 4 chapters to go and she wanted to read the rest all in one go. Her favourite part was when Templeton carried down Charlotte’s egg sac in his mouth so Wilbur could take it home to the barn. .
This is my old copy of Charlotte’s Web - it’s been read many many times. I am so happy to have read it to my little girl, and I have a feeling this won’t be the last time we read it. Now I want to track down the old movie I used to watch non-stop. .
When I was a child, I desperately wished someone would give me a baby pig. As an adult reading it now, the thing I was most struck by was Charlotte’s death. She died all alone, but satisfied that she had done her job in saving Wilbur. She was happy her babies were safe with him. She didn’t suffer fools and she loved Wilbur with all she had. .

Here I am with my second family Ted and Vanessa at Cottenwood Ranch and Kennel, while mom and dad go cat skiing. Why they want to ski with cats is beyond me. #cottonwoodranchandkennel #wilbur
You have been my friend. That in itself is a tremendous thing. I wove my webs for you because I liked you. After all, what's a life, anyway? We're born, we live a little while, we die. A spider's life can't help being something of a mess, with all this trapping and eating flies. By helping you, perhaps I was trying to lift up my life a trifle. Heaven knows anyone's life can stand a little of that.

Corgi in the storm—
Extra whiskers in his chin-
Still loves playing ball.
Good morning ☀️ Can someone please let me out? 🐽
Did somebody order a Strawberry Sunday?
New member of the family❤️ Her name is Amidala and she’s a 9 week old pot belly/ mini mix. 😊
My sister and mom each also got one so we have 3 total. My mom’s pig is Wilbur and my sister’s is Reginald. #pig #potbelly #family #amidala #wilbur #reginald #pet
It is with an extremely heavy heart that we finally post... 3 months ago tomorrow we woke up to find our sweet baby Nash had passed in his sleep. We have been completely heartbroken and devastated about losing this amazing little guy. There was nothing revealing on his necropsy except he likely had a weak immune system and he possibly succumbed to some type of infection without showing any signs or symptoms.
Nash was such a special creature. He was so incredibly smart, loving and yet the biggest trouble maker! I always dreamed of having a pink little pig since I was a little girl. And, for a short period we were blessed enough to have him here with us. It is still so hard & we cannot make sense of it... we miss his sweet little face honking around, demanding food, forcing his way into my arms for a nap no matter what I was trying to do and most of all the sweetest pig kisses in the world.
Nash came from an amazing breeder who despite not really knowing if this was something genetic has retired Mama. Nash came from her 1st & last litter.
Tomorrow we will travel back to the farm to pickup a new baby we’ve named Spencer Reed. While he will never be able to take away the pain we still feel from the tragic loss we are thrilled & excited to have the opportunity to bring our handsome spotted boy home & pray it will somehow help our hearts a bit.
We’re sorry for taking so long to post but we just couldn’t bring ourselves to do so until now as we prepare to introduce Spence to the world. It was wholly unplanned but somehow meant to be that we will be bringing this little boy home 3 months the day when we lost our 1st boy. 🙏🏼
