Sow and Piglet - Think of the non-human mothers this mother's day.

Did you know that pigs in a sanctuary setting nurture their children for life?

Given the chance mother pigs remain and look after their children for their entire lifetime continuing to appear to have respect and love for their offspring, even as they age. They make large nest-like beds for sleeping, helping to protect them from other pigs and situations they deem dangerous.
