The Good Good Pig

The Good Good Pig: The Extraordinary Life of Christopher HogwoodMy mom picked this book for her bookclub choice and wanted me to test it out first. It's a true story, where the author ends up raising a runt pig that no one expected to live. But he fooled everyone. He went from being the size of a cat to 700 lbs and living for 14 years. During his lifetime, Christopher, affected the lives of everyone in the little town that he lived it. He made friends, and made people realize the joy of life. As one person put it- 'he was a buddah'. It was a good tale, and made you realize just how much an animal can change a person's life. It always made me feel bad for eatting pork and bacon, and after reading this, I really am going to try and stop eatting it, because a pig is a good animal and should be raised to bring joy to people, not just dinner.
