She is still a baby, that eats like no tomorrow. She is very keen on making up new tricks to impress you into handing over more treats. She has perfected the Tula twirl, she does this little twirly thing after going potty and sometimes while she is still going potty... while it does make cool designs in the snow you really need to keep your feet out of her way. She loves to snuggle in really tightly with her snout right behind your ear, wrapped up in a blanket and squeezed really hard for about an hour a day....

Here is Tula, six months old and of course a pig.

Carol wanted the story behind Tula. So I answered an ad in the paper about a pot belly pig, drove out to a home with Kamp Khaos on the mail box :) four kids from 3 to 8 years old, 3 dogs, 2 cats, 6 chickens and a four month old female pot belly pig. Mom knew that she couldn't give the time and attention to a baby pig and needed to adopt her out. I walked in, said I'll take her and came home with a new pig. Mom just wanted to know that I wasn't going to eat her!

Tula lives in my walk out basement like my previous pigs. She will probably be about 150 pounds when full grown and will dig up my yard come spring time!
