If you Teach a Pig to Sit

Last week we taught our cutie tootie piglet to sit.  He learned it so quickly - literally it took 3 tries and he had it down pat.  He likes to be engaged and he loves to get rewarded.  I think with some patience from the humans we can teach him just about anything.

So - now that he knows how to sit and he understands that when he is asked and he does it he gets food - he is sitting obsessed.  He sits for everything - whether there is food involved or not.  He sits in an effort to get let out of his pen, in an effort to get the other critters to share food with him, in an effort to get pets, just for the heck of it to get praise.

It's really quite cute - he is very funny....  I am not a great videographer and we got video bombed by Emma - but this will give you an idea of the cuteness:
