The 50-year-old's house and rented farm property in Denver is currently home to nearly two dozen animals: eight elderly dogs, two Calico cats, two ducks and a miniature pot-belly pig named Bikini (who happens to think she's one of the dogs). Greig also regularly cares for two other dogs -- one belonging to his roommate and another to his sister.
