One day, while accompanying her husband Edgar on his veterinary rounds through the Pennsylvania countryside, Gay Balliet experiences love at first sight: a pot-bellied piglet. After she adopts Lowell, Gay is introduced to the refreshing, liberating and rebellious lifestyle of owning such a nontraditional pet. Together Gay and Lowell, with Gay's friend Susan, embark on a series of exciting adventures rescuing abandoned and abused porkers from uncaring owners, trips to the slaughterhouse and desperate plights. But it is when a frightening intruder threatens Gay's life and Lowell comes to her rescue that Gay learns Lowell has mastered the art of existential living and is a true hero of our time.
