This is Pig, enjoying the snow in December 2007, before La Mela Rosa was finished being restored.
I first met Pig in Sydney and was so overcome by his singing ("My Girl") and his dancing that I had to have him so paid his owner a fortune for him.....well, $15 anyway. Later, when moving to Italy, I gave him back - seemed silly to take him to Amandola because he can't speak Italian. Very happily, the owner came to visit us bringing Pig with him. Pig is now very well-travelled having been to Venice, Croatia, Hungary and other places i can't remember. However, he's settled happily into life here at Caccianebbia and intends to stay although sadly, his dancing days seem to be over.
