23-year-old pig

The world’s oldest potbellied pig is living in a Calgary suburb.

The Guinness Book of World Records recently informed Ernestine’s owners, Dan and Jude King, that their pet is indeed the oldest known pig.

The Kings, who celebrated Ernestine’s 23rd birthday July 17, adopted her in 1991 from a farm near Cochrane, Alta., when she was three months old. Jude was enthusiastic about the novelty pets, but Dan worried about handling pig manure. However, he was pleasantly surprised to learn this was a clean pet. Ernestine became a beloved family pet and is living out her final years in their southwest Calgary home, where there is room in the backyard to explore.
