2. "I was so distraught, but I wanted to find a way for something great to happen, to give his death meaning," he said. "So I decided to go to the shelter and adopt the oldest, least likely to be adopted dog there."

7. Another notable members of Greig's family is Bikini the pig. "I first spotted Bikini in the back of an old pickup truck at a local chicken swap," Greig says. "Although I came there to adopt an old chicken, I left with a large pig. The owner told me she was already house broken, used a doggy door and lived with dogs so it seemed to be a fate I couldn’t refuse."
