PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Good Good Pig: The Extraordinary Life of Christopher Hogwood When Sy Montgomery opened her heart to a sick piglet she had no inkling that this piglet later named Christopher Hogwood would not only survive but flourish The Good Good Pig celebrates Christopher Hogwood in all his glory from his inauspicious infancy to hog heaven in rural New Hampshire where his boundless zest for life and his large loving heart made him absolute monarch .

Christopher Hogwood came home on my lap in a shoebox He was a creature who would prove in many ways to be more human than I am from The Good Good Pig .

A naturalist who spent months at a time living on her own among wild creatures in remote jungles Sy Montgomery had always felt more comfortable with animals than with people So she gladly opened her heart to a sick piglet who had been crowded away from nourishing meals by his stronger siblings Yet Sy had no inkling that this piglet later named Christopher Hogwood would not only survive but flourish and she soon found herself engaged with her small town community in ways she had never dreamed possible Unexpectedly Christopher provided this peripatetic traveler with something she had sought all her life an anchor eventually weighing pounds to family and home .

The Good Good Pig celebrates Christopher Hogwood in all his glory from his inauspicious infancy to hog heaven in rural New Hampshire where his boundless zest for life and his large loving heart made him absolute monarch over a mostly peaceable kingdom At first his domain included only Sy s cosseted hens and her beautiful border collie Tess Then the neighbors began fetching Christopher home from his unauthorized jaunts the little girls next door started giving him warm soapy baths and the villagers brought him delicious leftovers His intelligence and fame increased along with his girth He was featured in USA Today and on several National Public Radio environmental programs On election day some voters even wrote in Christopher s name on their ballots .

But as this enchanting book describes Christopher Hogwood s influence extended far beyond celebrity for he was as a friend said a great big Buddha master Sy reveals what she and others learned from this generous soul who just so happened to be a pig lessons about self acceptance the meaning of family the value of community and the pleasures of the sweet green Earth The Good Good Pig provides proof that with love almost anything is possible
