Hadley has gotten so demanding- she is a constant moocher and squeaks whenever I walk by. The kicker is that she is picky in what she is mooching for! She's been really slow to try new foods, even seeing Sundae eat them. So if I try to give her a treat that is not to her liking, she will sniff at it, and then go back to wheeking at me because I didn't get it right! So far, she likes carrots, cucumbers, most leafy greens, and apples. Anything that isn't any of those gets an uninterested sniff and resumed wheeking! I keep giving her access to different foods in the hope that she will eventually try them and broaden her horizons a bit... in the meantime, I think Sundae is really enjoying scarfing down all the oranges and melons that Hadley doesn't seem to think are food!

We have a picky pig too Sasspy, she will wheek for stuff, you hand it her then she drops it and starts again so I sympathise :))

Yes, she keeps taking the freeze-dried strawberry treats from our hands, dropping them, and then staring at us expectantly. She must think we are not very bright because we keep giving her the wrong stuff. Sundae, on the other hand, is having a great time scarfing down all the strawberry treats that Hadley leaves on the floor!
