Pet Pig Love The Ocean


Ziggy just travels a lot. The owners decided not to leave her at home, but they could not refuse to travel. When in November 2010 Christine Hartness and J. Jonz realized his dream and acquired minipig Siggy, nothing boded trouble. Because the weight of these animals does not exceed 11 pounds. But soon, Siggy easily crossed that mark and the faster it grew, except that his love to the owners and to the community. Of course!

After all, it was about the Virgin Islands. Who would refuse the trip to the Caribbean? The caring owner walked Ziggy on the beach twice a day, no matter how busy she was. Pretty quickly the weight of the pigs reached 113 kg and she became the mascot of the island of St. John! People sailed on the ferry only to look at the “minipig” on a leash and treat him with something tasty.

Ziggy led a free life, going with the owners on a trip and even mastering surfing! But soon the pair and their pet had to move out of a rented house in connection with the sale and find a new home on the island failed. Few people liked the idea of putting such a pet in their house. Despite their low abundance, Christine and Jay had to hire a private plane to carry Ziggy to the States.

But throw a pet or give it to the slaughterhouse a couple flatly refused. Faced with the search for housing in America and the place where they would like to live, Christine and Jay decided to buy a caravan and travel around the country. The pair traveled all States from North to South and from West to East, reaching the extreme Cape Key West in Florida.
