Frying Pan Park is really oriented to children, but our old, very ill dog LOVED to go there to visit the piggies. The farm is about a miles walk from our house and even though he was getting weaker and weaker with age and illness, he wanted to go there twice a day. His strength peaked as the pig barn came into sight and he would drag either me or my husband to the door and we would walk around and around in one door and out the other visiting the pigs both at the inside pens and outside pens. He liked nothing more than to have the opportunity to lick a hogs nose or ears or get up close and personal with a piglet. We sincerely believe that these pigs kept him alive an extra three months because he believed he had to visit them each day. On the last day of his life, we drove him to the farm, let him out of the car, and he headed with great strength to the pig barn. He would have walked around in that circle for hours even though he had not laid down nor slept in over two days, but we had an appointment with destiny that day and bid the pigs a final farewell. We are so grateful to the keepers of the farm for the wonderful job that they do and the kindness of their interactions with all their visitors, children, adults, and black four legged guests. The farm will always hold a very dear spot in our hearts.
