The author...and her husband rescued a runt covered with black and white spots and named him after Christopher Hogwood...Montgomery learns a good deal from Hogwood about celebrating the evanescent pleasures of living. May well spark a stampede in porcine acquisitions, not as consumables, but as companions.
Though I would not be able to consider having a hog instead of a dog in my house, I admire Sy for taking Christopher in, and him for being such a gracious recipient of her fond affections. It was an adoption made in hog heaven.
The Good Good Pig: The Extraordinary Life of Christopher Hogwood documents the friendship that develops between the author and this endearing animal... Montgomery writes with skill and sensitivity about the challenges of caring for this formerly fragile animal, who now weighs a robust 750 pounds.
The humor with which she recounts Christopher's meticulous eating habits and love of digging up turf is sure to charm readers.
Animal lovers, prepare to be seduced by Christopher Hogwood...When Christopher meets his maker after a good, long life, get ready for waterworks. Spoiled rotten, dearly loved. Extraordinary, indeed.
