A Vet’s Piggy Figurine Collection

My husband by profession is a veterinarian who specializes in the field of swine management. He is a down-to-earth person, full of wits, contented in living a simple life, a homebody, a loving and responsible husband and father and a collector.

Aside from his numerous compilations of medical books, he is fond of collecting piggy figurines as a souvenir. Over the years, he accumulated loads of piggy keepsakes from the places he traveled, domestic or international and mementos from conventions he attended. Whenever we go on some place and found a cute piggy figurine he will surely never miss purchasing it. Some are gifts from friends and relatives.
