A Little Comfort Goes A Long Way

Very Smart Warthog At Rest

I had an email from a friend in Zimbabwe yesterday and she sent me this picture and story I thought was delightful.

They had been away at a game park and on the first evening, while sitting in front of the fire in the bar, in walked a fully grown warthog.

He walked over to the bar and without a word the bar man handed him a pillow.

He took the pillow in his mouth, dropped it next to the fire and promptly lay down with his head on the pillow and went to sleep where, apparently he spends the cold nights.

In the morning he’s off into the bush again!  My friend says that if the barman isn’t there, he’ll just grab a pillow off one of the couches!”

Here he is, in all his glory…

      Yeah I wondered how it all started in the first place, seems amazing doesn’t it?

    Can this be true?

      Not sure if it is true or not, but my friend is South African but living in Australia, and it was sent to her by her friend who lives in South Africa. Isn’t he/she adorable though? I thought it was really cute.

    That’s great. I wonder what kind of pet a warthog would make?

      Not sure as we don’t have them in Australia except in zoo’s but he did look really cute didn’t he. Mind you I don’t think my dogs would be impressed.
