    The middle picture has kind of a touching story behind it. The girl holding Pigpen is my daughter's best friend and about a month ago she flipped her truck end over end six times and now has bruising and swelling on her brain. She couldn't remember much about anything for a few days but her mom said she kept telling her to make sure she put Pigpen to bed and she insisted she had a rooster and he was real. Her mom and doctors thought she was having hallucinations etc... Well after I sent her a pic so she knew her daughter wasn't nuts they printed it and put it in her hospital room. Now she is home but still has "episodes" and her mom will bring her to our house to see Pigpen because he calms her. So he is more than our pet, he is her therapy :)
