Beautiful post, Jasmin! I love pigs since I was a kid and hated to see them being raised in the dirt, in Brazil, and hear farmers say that the pigs "like it". Argh.

I'm helping the ducks and geese tonight! Leafleting (about the cruelty of foie gras) in NYC with a group of fabulous activists. :)

Have a wonderful weekend~

As an intern at Farm sanctuary I have gotten the chance to experience what I had always heard: pigs are intelligent, affectionate and fun.

Thank you for keeping the dialogue going and for reminding us, with those heartwarming final words, that the wish to do right by these animals is somewhere in all of us!

This is a wonderful post. The perception of these animals as dirty and unclean is a negative,faulty one. Ads like the one you mentioned and the one I wrote to by Ax are an example of the poor judgment of society. Videos like the one on sprinkles and Tim shows how they are loving, fun animals who play just like your cats and dogs. We must educate people to see what really is the truth.
