About me

Hamlet’s adventure began with her human, Melanie in 2014. Hamlet was given to Melanie when she was experiencing a large increase in breakthrough seizures. Melanie lost her independence and struggled with depression. Once Hamlet came into Melanie’s life, a brighter adventure began to unfold. Hamlet’s spunky, sweet personality brightened her human’s worst days and gave her something to focus her energy on.

Hamlet’s human must stay in bed when there are signs of possible seizures. Hamlet was always ready and willing to snuggle and stay in bed all day. It was comforting to Melanie to have Hamlet’s love and companionship. Melanie couldn’t do a lot independently but she could take care of Hamlet and document her personality and their fun together.

Early on, Hamlet began to recognize precursor signs of her human’s seizures. At the age of 2, Hamlet started to warn Melanie before a seizure. She would lay on top of Melanie’s legs to keep her safe. When Melanie would attempt to get up, Hamlet would stay still to prevent her from moving to a unsafe space. Although pigs can not be official service animals, Hamlet serves a very large purpose in her human's life. Melanie’s seizures are now less frequent. Hamlet has given Melanie her independence back and encourages her to move forward.

Hamlet continues to take Instagram by storm with over 330,000 followers.  Melanie is touched that others find joy in Hamlet’s daily adventures. Melanie is inspired to share their story and spread the joy that Hamlet brings to a larger audience.
