RAMSEY, N.J., (Reuters) - A potbellied pig named Honeymoon came to the rescue of a New Jersey couple on Monday, waking them to warn of a fire in their home. Flames broke out about 8 a.m. EST (1300 GMT) in the laundry room of the home of Pam and Fred Abma in Ramsey, New Jersey, Pam Abma said. The couple was asleep, but the persistent pig scratched at their bedroom door until they awoke, she said. "That little pig saved our lives," she said. "Our two dogs just slept through the whole thing. "Honey was the only one who smelled the smoke," she said. "The dogs were clueless." The fire was quickly put out by the local fire department. "Pigs are a lot smarter than dogs, clearly," said Fred Abma, who owns a landscape business. "And it was lucky for us." Honeymoon earned his name when the couple bought him on their wedding trip. Honeymoon, who is 18 months old and weighs about 100 pounds (46 kg), would be getting an extra special dinner, the couple said.
