 Before we get into The Collective I wanted to introduce everyone to the newest member of our family! Her name is Dottie and she's a seven week old pot belly pig! Yesterday was my birthday and she was my sweet little present. We've been wanting to get a second pet recently, we've discussed possibly getting a rabbit or a dog but Dottie just sort of fell into our lap and I couldn't resist her sweet face. She is so well trained and so sweet and the kids have been absolutely obsessed with her since we got her home. She has warmed up so nicely to the whole family, she's already my lap pig.
I will probably be spamming my Instagram feed with pictures of Dottie so if you want to follow along on our piggy adventure check out #yourdailydottie on Instagram!
Now that I've gushed over my new piggy.....
