Once upon a time, I fancied the notion of getting a pot-bellied pig as a pet (this might've been influenced by my love of the Ranma ½ anime). But then I read up on how to properly care for them and told that notion to fuck right off.
One of their favorite things to do is rut around in the ground for grubs and other gross shit to eat, so they require a lot of rutting area to be happy, and of course they'll totally fuck it up. That's why Eddie's back yard looks so shitty. I'm not the type of person to give a fuck about having a nice lawn (in fact, I'd be happy with a lawn of nothing but rocks), but I don't plan on ever having a big enough yard to support a rut-happy pig. Also, pigs eat a fuck-ton and like to roll around in the mud and I'm way too much of a neat-freak to be cool with that.
So no pet piggy for me. Snacky Love will have to do.
