Meet Albert Einswine!
Saved by an elderly couple which brought him a new life at Edgar’s Mission.
While he may not be too sure about the theory of relativity, he most certainly was sure about the reality of his predicament. And it was not good! Lost, bewildered and frightened was the young porcine Albert Einswine as he deftly ducked and dodged his way around a local park. Happening upon an elderly couple whom he felt may see him as more of a friend than food, Albert tried his luck. Proving his judgement to be correct, they wrangled the little guy into the back of their car and off to their local animal shelter. Despite being absolutely adorable, with his black-tipped ears and bespeckled eyes, and incredibly intelligent, this ginger piggy who is so willing to offer his cute guttural piggy greetings had no one forthcoming to claim him.
It wasn’t too long before one little pig was heard singing, ‘Yippy, skippy, I’m going to the Mishy.’
Throughout history, pigs’ lives have entwined with those of humans in so many ways and from the Eurasian wild boar, we now have over 500 different pig breed. And while sadly, their fates are the servitude of humans, every now and then some get lucky, just like dear Albert. If only each and every one of us took the time to reach down and feel the sweet smell of hog breath, to hear their happy and joyous piggy grunts- all a celebration of their just ‘being’. We too may feel the tug on our heartstrings telling us that it really is time to be kind to pigs.
Oh, and why is Albert Einswine so smart? Because he has ended up at Edgar’s Mission of course!
“Can someone please help me out I have a full grown female goat wanting to give away but marketplace won’t allow me to post…free of charge”.
Dust bathing for the first time in her 73-week life is Katie. Her “sister”, Kayla, eagerly watching on as her blind friend kicks dirt every which way.
When the cheeky young goat we have named Purr broke his leg in a remote community, things were looking grim.
If you are considering bringing a companion animal of any species into your world, please read and pay attention to the following.
Amazing us all just recently was the arrival of four teeny tiny turkeys: Cornelius, Tofurkey, Curious George and Cheerio.
Planting the seeds of kindness were the sweet natures of Hawthorn, Poppy and Tulip, young sheep who touched the heart of a kindly pound worker.
From this moment to the next, we grow and change. Yet we stay who we are. We are shaped by our experiences but not defined by them.
In the early hours of today, dear Henry pig nestled into his straw bed and drew in a breath
