i bought miss piggy when she was 5 weeks old. our home was on the family farm and she had alot of kids, dogs and cats to play with. for the first year of her life she went to work with me everyday to the kennel where i groomed dogs. after awhile she grew tired of that so with a fenced in yard, we put her outside with the large dogs and she came inside in the evening as they did. when she turned 3 she decided she would rather be outside, so we enclosed the end of our front porch for her. this enclosure was heated with a large heat lamp that started the fire that destroyed the house. but she made it out okay other than being traumatized. after contacting everyone in our area whoes job it is to help displaced animals, no one would help us. i found uship on web, got hold of the girls that sounded like what we needed and they took her to a great home called olive branch. i could not be more pleased. thank you, stephanie nibert also i would use uship again!!
