While with my parents traveling in Namibia and South Africa, we stopped off at a farm near Gobabis, Namibia, owned by family of some of my friends. About a year earlier, they adopted a baby warthog. These things are so ugly, they are cute! Canon was his name and he was so tame. He craved attention and followed me around quite a bit. One bad habit of his, was that he like to gnaw on my feet. He wasn’t trying to eat them. I think it was more of a way to ask for attention. So, after a bit of playing footsy with me, I would rub his course, dry body leading to squeals of delight. Playing with him always made me laugh as you can see in this short clip called ¨Taming a Warthog¨ when I tried to film with him in the shot and he made ME squeal.   Hope you enjoy this week’s Suh-Weet Shot of Canon nibbling on my shoe.
