Dr. Kinney told Ashley that she was doing a wonderful job with her--Barbie was the first pig that he has seen in his career so far, which has been a long one, that he has NOT had to tranquilize to trim her hooves and clean her ears! He was very impressed at how well she did! It was a reflection of the time and attention and discipline that Ashley has taken with her little BIG piggy pet! He got a clean bill of health and is going to be spayed next month to make her an even better piggy!
Here she is resting after her long ride to the pig doctor! She did very well on the trip home...I think she exhausted herself screaming on the exam table! The ride there was a slight nightmare --more for Ashley, who was in the backseat with her--keeping her in line and picking up endless poops since she seems to poop when she is nervous--and she was extremely nervous on the trip to the vet! UGH!!
A big sigh of relief from the pig. "Yayyyy..I am home and the hard part is over!!!!"
