When a pig gets a bath.....Category: Ruthie
Author: 5 Chicks and a Farmer
Ruthie has a stuffed pig that she is VERY fond of.
Actually, it's not just a stuffed pig. It's an "Aurora Lolly Gagz" pig to be exact per a phone conversation with the manufacturer of this pig.
This desperate momma phoned the company last week only to find out that they quit making this pig in 2009. Bummer- in a major way. The last purchase of this pig was by "Tuesday Morning".
Consider this a plea if you will.
If you see this pig, please buy one. Or better yet. Buy two. I will pay you back and pay the shipping.
This pig goes everywhere with her. When it's out of her sight, her radar goes off. She knows. He/she has no name other than "pig". It's easy for her to say.
She always insists that I give her pig a kiss goodnight too. There are times when I cringe and hold my breath in order to grant her request.
Sometimes, her pink pig turns into a brown-ish pig.
I think (actually pretty sure) I traumatized Ruthie today when her beloved pig got a bath today. After searching for near an hour, she found her pig like this.......
I decided to air dry the pig and let mother nature's sunshine do its disinfecting magic. But, little Miss Ruthie discovered that her beloved pig was literally being "hung out to dry" and she was not a happy girl.
As a matter of fact, this is as tame as it got......for almost an hour. She never left the porch.
So, as you can see. I'm desperate and dreading the day that our beloved pig is no more or lost or decapitated. I tremble at the thought. Our whole family shudders even thinking about this. We are all conditioned to perform a "pig check" when we get in our vehicle to go any place.
Who would have known that we should have scurried down to the local hospital gift shop and purchased everyone of these pigs because she would love it so?
Consider this alerting the masses....
