A volunteer writes: What do you get when you mix a pot-bellied pig with an Easter rabbit, cover it in honey and sprinkle it with charm? (Well maybe more than sprinkle.) Meet Khalea! At only 1 year-old and just 40 pounds, this pint-sized piggy immediately packs a punch. Just one glance into her kennel where she sits patiently and adorably, her butt wiggling all the while, is enough to make the darkest clouds part, the saddest soul sing, and turn any grumpy grinch’s frumpy frown upside-down. Khalea is easily leashed and off we go, but not before I fasten a coat around her sweetly chubby frame. And as we make our way to the park on the most bitterly cold of days, Khalea sets the tone for our time together with a literal hop, skip, and a jump. “She is just adorable!” a fellow volunteer exclaims, but Khalea’s moving too fast to hear. She’s caught sight of the trees, seen the squirrels and the sky, and this little piggy is ready to play. Once in the park Khalea takes treats gently, watches an impromptu game of basketball, and confuses lingering pigeons with her repeated attempts to play. Finally our precocious pup has had enough and decides to join me on a bench. And after a few minutes (it takes a few tries on those little legs) she’s snuggling at my side. What do you get when you mix a pot-bellied pig with an Easter rabbit, cover it in honey and sprinkle it with charm? A lifetime of happiness, laughter, sweetness, and love. Khalea is waiting in adoptions at Manhattans’s ACC.
