I firmly believe that people are put into the path of one’s life for a reason. Krista is one of those people. She started as my Love’s palliative care physician and has subsequently become a friend. Today I met her glorious pigs.
Just as every person has a story, pigs do too. Ms. Zumwalt aka Zumi is a certified practicing therapy pig who goes on speaking engagements.
Stanley is a rescue pig from a big city in south western Ohio. He’s shy around strangers, but warms up quickly.
Cleveland (the wonder pig) was rescued from, you guessed it, downtown Cleveland. He had a broken pelvis and multiple infections. Initially only a short-term foster, he became part of the family menagerie which also includes two dogs and two talkative birds.
It takes a big-hearted person to not only love animals who are down-and-out, but also love and care for humans who are suffering through their last days on earth.
Thank you, Krista, for your caring heart toward both two and four-legged animals. It is my pleasure and honor to call you a friend.
