Oct 23, 2009: Pig-Dog Awwww

TGIF, which means it's time for our Friday, Awww that's cute, lets eat it.



Quote:
A giant farm dog and a tiny piglet cuddle up as if they were family after the baby runt was dismissed by its own mother.

Surrogate mum Katjinga, an eight-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, took on motherly duties for grunter Paulinchen - a tiny pot-bellied pig - and seems to be taking the adoption in her stride.

Lonely Paulinchen was luckily discovered moments from death and placed in the care of the dog who gladly accepted it as one of her own. Thankfully for the two-week old mini porker, Katjinga fell in love with her at first sight and saved her bacon.
Or saved her for bacon.
Let's face it, that piglet wouldn't even make a decent snack for the Rhodie.
But if it was fattened up for a bit... you know, milk fed like veal... hmm.

Isn't she afraid of the swine flu?

I'll have my pig fried extra crispy, please. But I draw the line at dogs. Especially this one.

Thanks for the warm/fuzzy this morning Bruce. I needed that.

What a sweetie! Thanks, bruce!



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Oct 23 10:49 AM

I'm beginning to wonder if the pig is that small, or the dog is huuuge?



spudcon  Friday Oct 23 04:49 PM

That's what she said.

Male ridgebacks should be 25-27 inches at the shoulder and weigh approximately 85 lb, females 24-26 inches and approximately 70 lb. They are typically muscular and have a red coat.


That's a good lookin' dog.
