Miss Pig is driving her owners barking mad after convincing herself she is a dog. Tricia James found the three-week-old piglet last year 'yelping like a dog' outside her home in Hornsdale, Australia. She comments: 'It was quite strange, we found her at the back door like you would a dog, the pig sty is about 200m away. She eats with the dogs, hops into bed with them and makes all sorts of noises that are more like a dog. If I call her name, she comes running, again like a dog. She was the runt of her litter and just refuses to go back to the pig sty. It's the first pig we've had behave like this'. Now the 4-month-old Miss Pig spends her time running around the farm with Tricia's 10 dogs with whom she is the best of friends.
