Meet the Trotters

This is a pigture of Rosie Trotter, the matriarch of the Trotter clan, with her hog Rodrigo. Rosie and Rodgrigo share a sty in Slurrey Hills.

They grew up together in Spain, where they fell in love and after moving to England and having their first litter, trotted up the aisle.

I discovered them in a card shop in the Whitgift Centre in Croydon which they had sold themselves to after Rodrigo lost his job. Rosie was pregnant at the time, but I didn't realise this until later when she gave birth to a litter of six beautiful porklets.

These two animals have been my faithful companions for over 25 years, always there with a listening ear and never passing judgment. They have had their own share of problems along the way, especially Rosie, who lost her family when she was just a few weeks old. If you want to know more then read on ...
