PLASTIC SURGERY FOR A PIG? by Lois W. Stern

Boris Gets a Brow Lift
So you think cosmetic surgery is just for humans? Not so! Boris, a 3-year-old Australian pet pig, recently underwent his own brow lift after being carried to the hometown vet on a horse float. But don’t scream “foul play” quite yet. First hear the rest of this story.
When Graeme Cane and his wife Julie bought Boris, they were told he was a miniature breed, the runt of his litter, and would grow to no more than 132 pounds. He was so small in fact that he used to walk under the belly of their family dog, Boof. But as he continued to put on weight, he tipped the scales at 550 pounds. The Kanes put him on a diet. He did lose weight, but with that weight loss came a lot of excess skin, drooping over his eyes until he couldn’t see.
If you were faced with the options of brow lift or blindness, what choice would you make for your beloved pet?
I look forward to reading your comments in the Comment box below.

What’s Your Passion?
About loiswsternI was in education for just over 20 years when I unexpectedly pursued another passion and entered the world of authors and journalists. I have since published two non-fiction, full length books on different aspects of beauty, but also avidly endorse the confluence of Inner and Outer beauty. I have written feature articles for Long Island Beauty Guide and LI Woman, and have served as Editor-at-large for MakeMeHeal.com, the largest Internet site for plastic surgery and beauty needs. I enjoy researching what's new in the world of aesthetics & anti-aging and devote one of my blogs: www.FabulousBeautyBlog.wordpress.com to sharing cutting edge, hype-free information. I devote my second blog to my other passion: writing, collecting and sharing stories to warm the spirit and inspire the soul. To this end, I have created an 'Authors Helping Authors' project/contest, to create books for inspiration, the first of which is titled: Tales 2 Inspire ~ Beyond Coincidence. It is a jewel of a book, filled with inspiring stories and full color original photos and/or drawings.
