Isn't this little piggie the cutest thing!!!!!!!????
The latest rage in mini animals - teacup pigs.
A friend posted about this on FB, saying they only get to be about 8 lbs full grown.
I researched it, and they grow to be anywhere from 25-65 lbs - not exactly teacup size - but still small, compared to the average hog.
I believe this pic came from a breeder in England - and the prices range from $2,500- $3,800!!
A pretty pricey little piece of bacon!!!
A baby one of these little cuties would be breakfast for one - for one of my dogs.
I remember in the 80's, when Vietnamese pot bellied pigs became all the range - they were supposed to be tiny - well, SURPRISE, they were, and are, not. And, impulse purchases of pot belly pigs, resulted in pig rescues all over the country - because folks who bought these little cuties, found out they were not so little when grown. Pigs are highly intelligent, but will tear your backyard to shreds, doing what pigs do!
Drinking Twinings Earl Grey tea in my thrift shop English Royal Castle bone china oversized cup and saucer. My extra hot water is in my newest eBay acquisition - a brown English Denby pitcher. Love Denby!!!!
