This is sweet little Freckles. She is our Ms. March on our Smiles Around the Sanctuary 2005 calendar. You can see why she was included in the Smiles calendar. She was a very sweet and friendly pig.
Yesterday I buried her.
The necropsy showed that she not only had a very large tumor, her intestines ruptured and she was full of free floating matter.
Freckles was a pig that I took in from another sanctuary when they closed. I have no idea of her history. All I know about her is that she was an older gal, and seemed to love her life here at CCRC. She always had a big smile on her face. On Tuesday, her smile was gone. When I put her body in the ground yesterday, I could not help but notice that there was another smile on her face. I think she is happy again, and free from pain.
I miss her.
