We remember Esther the Wonder Pig, who brought so much joy to millions in the world who had the chance to follow the hilarious and heart-warming life of a pig and her human and animal friends. Esther passed away this week on October 18th, 2023 (a few weeks after her beloved friend Cornelius the turkey). She will be dearly missed and remembered forever.
In this throwback interview from January 2014, we had the opportunity to speak with Esther’s two dads, Derek and Steve. They had just set up a Facebook page for her a month before and it was already starting to explode! In this episode, they share how Esther came into their lives and what it was like to live in the city with a pig who had such a big life!
Goodbye, Esther. We love you! May you be in peace.
Steve Jenkins and Derek Walter, fathers to Esther the Wonder Pig

It is a beautiful story, and we have the honor of sharing it on our show.
