In the Spirit of Silly Tuesday…
“Never try to teach a pig to sing. It's a waste of time and besides it annoys the pig.”~ Robert A. Heinlein ~ (some say Mark Twain)

So does giving them a shower, but this one is being guided to the pig wash area for a bath before heading to the show ring.

That piece of advice pig vocal studies can be very wise. I promise to avoid it at all costs. Silly Tuesday in the spirit.

It doesn't seem to mind . . . yet. Pigs are pretty smart and that one probably knows the drill.

I have the "never try to teach a pig to sing" sign in my kitchen. I've been enjoying your pig series. I wonder if there is a "never try to make a pig take a shower saying".

@Gary: LOL…let's make up one right now.

Well, I bet they like baths more than they like showers? Happy ST.
