On the passing of the Patrick County pig once referred to as a legend

Rex Bowman of the Richmond paper has this story on the life and times of Oinky Doodle, gone but not forgotten.

This must-read begins:

"Oinky Doodle, Patrick County's most famous junkyard hog, known for his gluttonous love of Tootsie Rolls, Coca-Cola and peanuts, is dead. The big pig was 12.

He also ate York peppermint patties."

Of like cultural and literary merit is this account of Oinky Doodle's owner, who dreams of having Burt Reynolds play him in the movie.
