HEAVY PETTING: Piglet fears mud

Oh man, this story just kills me. According to The Daily Mail, pig farmers Debbie and Andrew Keeble noticed something strange about one of their new arrivals:

"While her six brothers and sisters messed around in the mire, she stayed on the edge shaking. It is thought she might have mysophobia - a fear of dirt.

Owners Debbie and Andrew Keeble were at a loss, until they remembered the four miniature wellies used as pen and pencil holders in their office. They slipped them on the piglet's feet - and into the mud she happily ploughed.

Now she runs over to Mr Keeble so he can put them on for her in the morning."


Not to worry though, five-week-old "Cinders" will not become bacon, as the Keebles are retired and only keep the animals as pets. In fact, she has a higher purpose: She will be the glamorous face behind a campaign to give a better deal to pig farmers. Eat that Sharon Stone!
