Yes, We Have a Pet Pig

When we decided to move to the country, I told my husband (after he had a couple margaritas, for good measure): “We are moving to the boonies. Do you want a chicken, a pig, or a goat?”

Well, from these pictures, you can guess what he picked. All I did to find her was Google “pet mini pig st. louis,” and I found Precious Pigs.

Meet Penelope.

She’s rambunctious, and as my husband says, “forever hungry.” She gets fed 1/2 cup of piggy food in the morning (we use Mizuri brand), and 1/2 cup in the evening. In between,  she gets healthy snacks like carrots and strawberries.

She’s also smart. We have a swivel cabinet, and she has figured out how to nose it open and steal the powdered sugar!

All of our mailpeople love her — UPS included. And while you may have heard the term “teacup pig,” those don’t actually exist. But miniature pigs do!

I love how she has different colored hooves. Some are peach, and some are black! The white spot on her forehead is also adorable.
