a happy pig that is not depressed is very energetic and loves to
play. There are actually many dog toys that you can get that
would entertain a piggy.
For instance, there is a "peanut butter ball" that is rubber. You
stick peanut butter into the center and then let your pig roll it
around as it licks peanut butter out of it. Any rope toys
designed for dogs are also good for a pig. Big basketballs or
anything large enough for your pig to roll around with its snout
will probably be enjoyed. There are sticks of seeds and alfalfa
you can buy and give to your pig for some entertaining snacking.
You can even throw around an apple and the pig will love it, just
don't expect to get the apple back in the end.

exercise and promotes a good healthy mood. It is a special time
for you and your pig to spend time together and play. There are

devices for long periods. Your pig needs your love and attention
just like any other pet.
