Getting Out of the Shelter

On Saturday, Piglet went on a trip to Penns Landing/South Street. She was excellent in the car and sat in the back quietly the entire time.

We walked around the Penns Landing area, but there weren't too many people out and about. Piglet saw her first horse; a horse farm probably is not the home for her! She barked at it until we could distract her.

Eventually, we made it to South Street and wandered our way up and down. Piglet is well-behaved in crowds and is very friendly with everyone she meets. She was super curious about all the stores and tried going in a few. There was a mirror outside a store and she enjoyed admiring herself.

She is learning to sit, so at every red light we tried to get Piglet to sit before we crossed. There was a lot going on, but she was starting to understand. She has so much energy and curiosity that sitting is not her top priority.

The day winded down and Piglet headed back to the shelter. She sat in the back again and got comfortable, finally tired out.

Piglet is still looking for a foster home. The ideal foster will be free to take her to UPENN for treatment of her mammary tumors. If you are interested in fostering Piglet, email or head down to ACCT at 111 W. Hunting Park Ave.
