Some good news for a change

Peaches is a Mommy!
Do you remember Peaches the pig? She was rescued from the Columbia River last summer as she made her escape from a barbecue somewhere up river. Apparently a cook at Salty's pulled her from the water, took pity on her, and spared her from his own barbecue. She was sent to a farm somewhere in Eastern Washington, where she seems to have thrived. Her live has not been uneventful since her try for the Olympic swim team either. She is now the happy Mom to 11 piglets...three boys and eight girls. Way to go Peaches!
