When Kristin Hartness and Jay Yontz got Ziggy, an advertised teacup pig, they were told he would stay small. Now, 5 years later their beloved pig weights about 250 pounds!

In the end, Ireland features far more than a series of landmarks. It also offers far more than miles and miles of stunning scenery. What makes Ireland truly unique are all the living creatures who call it home, including the animals.

In the future, I'll continue to love all the dogs I encounter at work, but I'll no longer assume the ones sporting vests deserve to wear them.
Dogs have so much love to give! They are so happy to be around us. There is really no better feeling than coming home after a long day to walk in to y...
