We took The Colonel Hoof-Hearted to The Blessing of the Animals at our church.

We finally went to LIGHT by Bruce Munro at Cheekwood this past Thursday.

It was really beautiful and ran through yesterday. My favorite thing was the teepee installation. I took a video, to my best ability, here.

My pig

I recently realized I haven’t provided you good people with any updates on the life of The Colonel Hoof-Hearted or “Pig.”  He’s good. The vet even recently verified this information.

He’s the happiest pig to ever be at the vet.

He’s still showing off his privates.

He and his girlfriend, Hippo, are madly in love.

This means he licks her and uses her body as a headrest. He had a hard time pulling her up on the couch or bed with him as she’s on the bigger side. So, cheated on her for a little bit with the Ove Glove.

He finally came up with a system of how to get Hippo onto the couch and I needed the Ove Glove back. So, that was a short romance.

He’s been chillin’ at Lowes.

He watched the fireworks last week.

He’s sitting in the back of The Mister’s truck.

He loves being a man-bear-pug.

And we love him.

You know we love our pig pug, The Colonel Hoof-Hearted. During my recent find of CDs filled with photos I came across photos of our first day with The Colonel. I was so excited to come across them that I became a little teary, but none escaped. Instead, I yelled for The Mister. I made him immediately cease what he was doing and look at them with me. Now, you must take a look.

This is his ride home. We got him on July 5, 2007. The rest are when we got to the apartment.

Then, on July 7 we took him the park.

You’re yelling for someone to come look too? I know. He’s so cute.

As you know, I call The Colonel Hoof-Hearted a couple things. Man-Bear-Pug and Pig are the most common nicknames. He answers to all of them because not only is he adorable, he is smart. I love him for many reasons. Here are two:

1. He gets me.

2. He is lazy. This may correlate with number one.

Now, after Friday, you know I’m trying to get my butt in gear and become healthier. It was difficult. First, I was on the road last week. Here are random road thoughts: Can the people below hear me jumping around? I’d hate me if they can. Why is the workout room a glass box in the lobby? I don’t want people watching me. Wait. Can those people see me watching them? Yes. Yes they can indeed. Hmmmmm. Gross. (You can expect a travel post later.) Second, we had stuff to do this weekend. I needed to do domestic stuff (cleaning, errands) that don’t happen much when I’m gone. Plus, we had Momma’s birthday and a wedding. However, I stayed commited and worked out. This was Pig and I.

I think the boobs being little v’s is funny. 

Speaking of boobs… I’m pretty sure they should make sport underwear not just sport bras. (Yes, you just read that. I’m sharing and you’re listening. Leave a comment.) I often wonder, while jumping around like an idiot while watching impossibly coordinated ladies on a DVD, if it is bad for my skin. I’m not tight and toned or else I’d be teaching the workout. Therefore, I worry if a full on compression outfit is needed. I’ve seen those sweat belts. Maybe they are used as a workout girdle.

I have always been a fan of Miss Piggy. She wore a bathing suit when working out.

Taking advice from a Muppet sounds like a good idea.

If you give The Colonel Hoof-Hearted a blanket you shall receive his love. He loves a blanket. Therefore, we decided to use receiving blankets on our couch to designated “pig friendly” areas. However, I knew the blankets needed to be cute. I didn’t want them to look like we were missing a baby. No teddy bear, ABC, baby prints. So, I was happy when I came across the following Dwell Studio blankets at Target.

They’re awesome. The Colonel recognizes his area of the couch, is able to nest, and knows when to “get on your blanket.” He’s pretty good with parameters. So, they did what they needed without being bulky and take up space like the past “couch beds” we used. Plus, we can wash them on hot with our rags. (More on our rag consumption here)

Here is The Colonel Hoof-Hearted, or as I affectionately call him “Pig,” laying on one of his blankets.

Here is a full couch view:

Bringing sexy back

The Colonel Hoof Hearted loves that The Mister is staying up late to study. Doesn’t he look like a little Romeo?
