wilbur the puppy-pig, you've stolen my heart.

this morning, i was perusing my nymag, and startled myself with an lol-in-public when i read this little neighborhood news item. i laughed because i envisioned his "energetic reaction" to look something like this.

when i got to work, i looked into the story of wilbur, and was delighted to find that he is just absolutely adorable.

Lisa Ortiz, assistant manager of the center in Manhattan, said workers there dubbed the pig Wilbur and pointed out that it wags his tail when called by name.
“He appears to be a pet because he was very friendly. He wasn’t charging, wasn’t snorting, wasn’t stamping his foot,” Gentiles said.
At the Manhattan center, hay was laid out on the ground for Wilbur. Employees had filled a small tub to be used as a bath, but most of the water had either been spilled or drunk.
On Tuesday morning, Wilbur snacked on vegetable- and fruit-flavored rabbit treats but shunned the morsels made with carrots as well as the whole carrots in its bowl.
dislikes: carrots, strawberries
likes: mixed treats for rabbits, lettuce, head-pets
