It’s #throwbackthursday and today I want to share some photos that I took about a month ago of one cute little girl and her very cute pet mini-pig named Duke. Although I grew up in rural Delaware with farmland all around me, pigs were one animal that I didn’t get much exposure to. After spending an hour with Lily and her piggy Duke I got to learn so much about these smart animals. (Yes, I said smart!)

Duke not only knows his name, comes when called, is 100% litter box trained and is totally lovable, but he also can find hidden treats, cover himself in a blanket, jump up on the couch, can navigate a  ball maze and more! I was beyond impressed with the intelligence of this little guy and how clearly his emotions came across. What a fun and unique photoshoot opportunity I got to have!
