as a person with some passing interest in pigs, i noticed recently a report that george clooney's pet potbelly pig, max, had died at the ripe old age of 19. further investigation of this news led me to the pigs4ever website, where i found the following important advertisements fyi:
"Bulky Lax Plus

i have just spent a couple of minutes wondering how one can tell if a pig has lost his/her memory, and what exactly is 'un-thriftiness'?
