Being a pig is hard work

Ben is hard at work, sleeping. He wouldn't even grunt his greeting to me as I meandered over to take his picture. I told him he would not be getting a belly rub with that sort of lackadaisical attitude. No response. No belly rub. That is the price you pay for snubbing me, Benjamin. And yes, it is true - pigs love belly rubs. More than any other creature on earth. They are more tactile than dogs, reveling in physical contact.
Ben, hard at work

I think if I were a pig, and I were sleeping in the nice warm sunshine on a nice pile of straw, I wouldn't be waking up for just a belly rub, either.

LOL, Emily! You're right - that was the perfect spot for Ben and he'd be damned if he was getting up just so I could rub his belly. :)

Beautiful picture. I didn't know pigs liked belly rubs :)
