J is for JACK, JEZEBELLE, and JEFFREY
My 'J' post this morning is in honor of the three porcine buddies I met last month when I volunteered at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanab, Utah. Jeffrey, Jezebelle, and Jack live in Piggy Paradise, their specially-designated digs on the sanctuary's grounds.
Though I spent most of my volunteer hours with the dogs, I helped staff members one morning by making the pigs' breakfasts (lettuce, pellets, mixed veggies, cranberries, almonds), filling shiny metal pans. In all, I filled pans for about 20 pigs.
I never realized pigs were so smart. The staff said one pig in residence a while back wore a different-colored hair ribbon on her head each day of the week. If anyone dared give her the wrong color on the wrong day, she pitched a fit!
Jack, Jezebelle, and Jeffrey were just plain adorable.
