From the Author
I am grateful to the thousands of pet pig owners who, for almost two decades, I have had the privilege of counseling. Their knowledge, care and concern for their Potbellys have not only stimulated and encouraged me, but also provided my with practical information regarding the care and training of the pet pig. And last, but certainly not least, are the potbellied pigs I have known and loved. Those who were born here and left, those who were born here and stayed and those who found their way here are each cherished by me as a special living being. I am most grateful to have been able to share a part of my life with them.
