    Most INFORMATIVE and Colorful Pig Book

    This filled in the gaps that all the other older pig books did not cover. Just wish it had been printed when we got Hamlet. We brought 'Bacon' up on this book, and he is a perfect pig (well almost)! It taught us how to understand and change our pig's behavior. It should be mandatory reading for every pig owner. It has special sections on aggression (our first pig was aggressive) and a ten step program that cured it. I have read the book twice but still refer to it. You can tell that Ms. Valentine understands and loves pigs. Thank you for writing it! PS. Bacon does 9 tricks already!
