Did you know that pigs have a lot in common with dogs? Well, obviously these two animals look nothing alike, but when it comes to their behaviors, likes and dislikes, the similarities are uncanny. Pigs can learn their names and will come running when called, they can “sit” and “stay” on command (in addition to doing other tricks that are much more impressive), plus they are incredibly compassionate and affectionate.
Just take a look at the sweet piggy in this video. This little guy loves nothing more than basking in the sunshine and enjoying a good belly rub.
Many people believe there is a vast difference between the animals they share their homes with and the farm animals they consider “food.” But seeing this happy piggy, we can’t help but to ask if there is really such a difference after all? When we get to see animals as someones, not somethings, suddenly these imaginary boundaries start to blur.
Keep smiling, little pig, we’re glad you’re in good hands!
