Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary in Ravenna, Ohio recently took to Facebook to announce that their resident potbelly pig, Sophie, is pregnant. The mom-to-be had been maltreated and abandoned on a property in Indiana, but since being rescued by the sanctuary, she’s been enjoying a pretty plush life.
How do we know? The sanctuary arranged a maternity shoot for her.
Jessica Cvelbar of Enjoy the Ride Photography took a series of celebratory shots, showcasing Sophie in all her maternal glory. “I am an animal lover, but have never worked up close with a pig before,” Cvelbar told The Dodo. “I gathered up essential maternity photo props, llike a tutu, festive banner, and a pink ribbon.”
The proud pig even has a baby registry on Amazon (which looks surprisingly similar to a normal baby’s registry).
Meanwhile, the sanctuary hosted a “Guess the Due Date” contest to encourage donations. Each contribution will go towards supporting Sophie and her future piglets, and the winner will receive a private sanctuary tour.
UPDATE: SOPHIE HAD HER PIGLETS!
