Mr. Pickles and the Oasis

Meet Mr. Pickles. This sad fellow ran away from an unhappy home and ended up inspiring an entire pig rescue project called Oasis Acres Potbelly Pig Foster Home. Sadly Mr. Pickles passed away last week from a bowel obstruction. People in his home town of Hannibal Missouri are still mourning his passing. During his short life, this humble pig has brought much awareness to the plight of domestic pigs and and all that is involved in caring for them and finding them loving homes.

Frankly, I do not see the resemblance.

  1. Mr. Pickles and Rose are both sweeties! Those faces! 🙂
    I’m so sorry to hear of Mr. Pickles death. 😦
    Pigs are so intelligent and cute! But, from my visit to a pig farm I learned they can be stinky in groups. HA! But then so can Human-Beans!
    Your creativity, talent, and crafty work is all amazing and beautiful!
    I will check out the raffle.
    Toby…Don’t forget…you are cute, too! 🙂
