I can’t stop thinking about getting a little pig …though my french bulldog is very similar to a little pot belly …but the tiny baby goat is now in the running as well. I cannot handle the cuteness.

    Piglets are crazy naughty – we had a ginger piglet that constantly dug out of our back yard & ran up the street squealing. Very adorable but a handful!

    Ha! Kristina – Agathe was the first thing that came to mind to me too! So cute. I am kind of obsessed with tiny horses myself.

    Piggys are adorable.. and surprisingly very clean. A friend of mine had a pig from a wee piglet and grew to be quite large. She lived in the house and you would never know a pig lived there. They’re smart too! The baby goat is soooo cute! I’d want one if it stayed little. 🙂

    Aw The goat is so cute!! We want a french bulldog soon too so that may be closer to the big without going all the way. I hear they are very very clean and smart animals though.

    I’d love to have a horse and call it Starlight BUT I live in a really small suburbia so all I have is a Golden Retriever… Thou the pig looks absolutely adorable they grow up faster than a blink of an eye… think about that, the best suited option is a goat, plus you can’t help it looking at that face *O*

    My husband wants a pigme(?) goat. WTF??? I would not mind if they could be potty trained, but really? My Mom had a pet pig growing up. She loved him. I am happy with my schnauzer! 🙂

    I have to tell you that miniature dairy goats make the best pets ever! Currently, I’m bottlefeeding five babies and the cuteness level has shot through the roof. 🙂

    I had a goat as a pet when I was younger, but was acquainted with pigs as well and of both choices I would definitely choose the pig: so intelligent and quite clean actually. Goats are not very interactive and are super stubborn!
    Greetings from sunny Lisbon,
    P.s. I had “normal” pets as well: dogs, cat, turtles and a rabbit 🙂

    All of them are too adorable. Have you ever heard of a pet crow? You have to read this true story:

    & then watch this video I found about crows (they remember peoples faces! They are CRAZY SMART…

    I really want a baby pig now! Or maybe just a piglike dog. I like ugly-cute dogs, like Boston Terriers. So adorable

    It’s funny you posted this. My friend rescued a baby mallard duck and I was ducksitting it for the weekend. I had NO idea how messy they are! I had to feed it in the bathtub because it got food UP THE WALLS (I guess if I had to eat without lips or teeth I would probably be messy too).

    Unfortunately they have no bowel control either, poop everywhere, an no matter how many times a day you bathe it, it still smells like a barn.

    Depsite the mess and smell, it was extremely rewarding when it curled up on my stomach and watched an entire Criminal Minds marathon with me.

    My mom wants a pig pet too. At the beginning I thought she was kidding.. but apparently not.
    I dont think I could live with a pig and have a ham sandwich ever again..

    if piglets stayed the size of a french bulldog, i’d have 20 of them. that is a fact.
