Here, Robert stands with his dog Blackjack and next to a hog named Christmas Dinner. Robert gave the hog this name the year before last with the idea that it would be dinner for Christmas that year. But as Robert explained further to me, he gets attached to some of the animals on his farm and they become pets that he cares for and cannot kill or eat. Christmas Dinner is now currently one of his favorite pets on his farm. Photograph Copyright Elle Olivia Andersen, All Rights Reserved.
