There was no Return to Sender note left alongside a wayward young pig who found himself on the doorstep of a kind-hearted Samaritan recently. Asking, “Are You Lonesome Tonight?” and bundling the dear boy up like a Teddy Bear, our porcine pal then made his way to a nearby animal shelter.
This kind-hearted Samaritan could well be this little piggy’s Good Luck Charm because he was then bidding his neighbouring Hound Dogs goodbye as he was on his way to Edgar’s Mission and into our Lovin’ Arms.
Christened Elvis Pigsley upon his arrival, this Little Darlin’ quickly danced his way into our hearts, with his joyful exuberance and squeals of delight. Even though he had every reason to be All Shook Up, Elvis Pigsley is, as Lyall Watson once said, like all pigs, an ‘eternal optimist.’
Although his early morning chorus and daily oinking commentary sometimes have our staff asking Elvis for A Little Less Conversation, we certainly all have A Thing Called Love for our newest resident.
And while we are sure little Elvis is busy saying, “Thank you, thank you very much,” to all those who secured his safety, there is one more thing we would like to add – Don’t be Cruel, please remember pigs are for lovin’ and not the oven.
