If you've already read the book, you know about the friendship that grows between Wilbur, a runty pig, and Charlotte, a heroic spider. But you may not know that the book's author, E. B. White, was himself a friend to animals.

Please meet Rosie & Gracie
Here are some pictures of my special girls. I bought these two little ones at a stockyard (I didn’t know any better).
The seller told me they were weaned and eating solid food. Not true! I had to bottle feed them for 3 weeks before they would eat soft solids, what a struggle for them and me! They are now healthy and such sweeties. Yes, I know Gracie need to go on a diet, I have cut back her food.
I only feed pig chow and occasionally watermelon rinds. No other treats! Gracie is shorter in both height and length than Rosie. Crissy & Ray [chandler6@chartertn.net]

Wilbur is free to be prosthetic-free
The Roanoke Times

This little piggy liked being a tripod.

Wilbur, a Tamworth pig, was 7 months old when he came to Harmony, an animal sanctuary in Botetourt County operated by the Roanoke nonprofit Angels of Assisi.

Steve George had worked at the New Castle farm where Wilbur lost one of his legs by getting caught in a fence. When George got a new job running Harmony, he brought the pig along.

When The Roanoke Times last wrote about Wilbur in April, the organization was working with Virginia Prosthetics to get him an artificial leg.

Rocky Mount woman gives pig a good life
By Evelio Contreras
981-3340
The Roanoke Times

For as long as she can remember, Michelle Miller of Rocky Mount had always wanted a pot-bellied pig.

Nine years ago, when she was a senior in high school, she passed handwritten notes to her friends with little drawings of pigs on them.

Michael Miller, a friend at the time and now her husband, once promised Michelle in a note that he would get her one.

“I never believed him,” she said. “We lost touch until a few years ago, and he promised the pig and got me a pig.”
