Re: Siblings...do they remember each other?

Big and his sister remembered each other. He stayed with the breeder until he was 12 weeks and was around 2 when I took him back for a visit. No doubt they remembered each other. It was very sweet to see them nose to nose, curled up little piglet tails wagging a mile a minute! :love:
