Meet Bernard, a former farm pig who was rescued from his doom by my friend, V. I met V at an animal advocacy event a couple of weeks ago, and upon admitting my fantasy of adopting a farm animal– specifically, a pig– she insisted that I come over for a Sunday Funday veggie brunch to meet her potbellied prince.

As far as whether or not a pig is in my immediate future, the verdict is still out… Stay tuned!
