Once again Daphne and Fiona, the pig girls, amazed me with their intelligence. A few days before Christmas we were expecting quite a cold spell for this part of the country. I worried about the pigs keeping warm so I bought a bale of straw and packed it tightly around the outside of their igloo. I covered the entire house with clean straw. Daphne and Fiona have two dog houses but prefer co-sleeping for warmth and comfort. They squeeze their 80 pound selves into one igloo and then squeeze their way out in the morning. The only thing you can see are two snouts sticking out of the opening. So like I said I piled straw up and around the igloo of choice but the girls had other ideas. They worked for quite a while piling the straw to their liking. Then they crawled inside the igloo.
And closed their door.
