Speaking of Swine

With all this swine talk in my home I figured now would be the perfect time to introduce the blogging world to our neighbor.
Not the dog...
IT'S A PIG!!
Our back porch looks down the hill right into our neighbor's yard and it just so happens that they have a dog and a pig! I don't think I'll ever get used to sitting outside enjoying nature and watching this big old fat pig going in and out of the dog door.
One night I was startled awake by this unnatural scream. It sounded like a pack of wolves was attacking a small animal right outside our window. I was debating about waking Sean but I just decided to snuggle up with Bella and wait for the horrific sounds to end. I was sure that I would find a carcass outside in the morning. When I told Sean about it in the next day he said that it was probably raccoons. I guess they can get sounding pretty vicious. There was no blood or animal parts outside our window so I decided that that must have been what it was. A few days later I was talking to our neighbors a few doors down who also have a balcony that overlooks the pig and the dog. Somehow we got talking about them. They asked me if I had heard them fight in the middle of the night yet. All of the sudden it hit me. That horrible scream must have been the pig! And I could definitely see wolf like sounds coming from a dog like that. The mystery was solved. I haven't heard it since but it does make me feel a little better that there will not be blood and carnage out side of my window in the morning. Who knows, maybe one day I'll just wake up to the smell of bacon instead...
