Two weeks ago, I drove up to Maryland to visit my sister, Katie, for a long weekend. On the way, I stopped at my Aunt Linda's house overnight. My pictures are in reverse order so you'll see pictures of her new Guiding Eyes puppy-in-training at the end of the post.
This post is dedicated to the wonderful, funny, and adorable animals I got to spend time with that weekend.
My sister, the world's most amazing animal trainer, has taught Pig Pig to sit for her food. Watch this little video.
Isn't that amazing? I'd heard that pigs were smart but that really proved it!
These cute little piglets got to join Pig Pig that weekend and they were all happier for it. They were so cute. The bigger of the two is really loud when he wants food!
I helped milk June, the goat, while I was there. She's such a great goat. She was very tolerant of me even though I'm not quite as fast as Katie.
They slurp up goat milk in record time!
So, you know that my sister can teach her pig to sit but did you know that she taught her dogs to catch marshmallows... as they come flying out of her mouth? Don't believe me? Watch.
This is one of the many reasons I love my sister. She is hilarious. When we were teenagers, we invented the marshmallow spitting game but at the time our dog just ran over and collected the marshmallows from the floor. Katie has taken it a step further.
So, back to the beginning of my trip. I stopped by my Aunt Linda's house to stay the night before heading to my sister's house the next morning. It was great to get a chance to visit and catch up. We sat outside, enjoying the wonderful weather and knit and talked. A great way to spend the morning.
He's a good napper, too.
