Wednesday night we packed up the pups and drove seven hours to Tim’s parents in upstate New York.  Our little ones are staying at camp grandparents for the next few weeks while we’re hosting the Italy retreat. I already miss Gizmo like crazy and it’s only been 26 hours since we left his parents’ house (but who’s counting?)!

To add to the holiday adventure, we headed to Farm Sanctuary on Thursday to celebrate FREEDOM for all beings at their annual Pignic. Pigs LOVE belly rubs, so I’m always happy to oblige. They’ll roll over and extend their legs, eager for more. However, in the last photo I’d just realized that I’d been rubbing more than just nipples on this guy. Oops!

Interested in hosting your own Pignic? Here’s a how-to complete with recipes and more from Farm Sanctuary. May all beings be happy and free AND I hope your 4th was filled with festivities. Bisous. x
