Henry the pig.... I loved that pig. He used to follow us around just like one of our dogs. We lived in the country on an acreage so there was sufficient room to roam.

Also learned one of those difficult lessons as a child. While my siblings and I thought of Henry as our pet, in reality he was always meant to be a part of our food supply. I'll never forget the day that he suddenly disappeared.

Again, pigs have their place, but they are not something I would recommend having as a pet. When they are little, they can be cute, but they grow and grow quickly...and the name pig is quite suitable to their nature in the end.
