My Mini Pet Pig . . . and Pals!

Piggy pellets

It’s been a while since I really posted (other than my successful dance invitation to Shadow – woohoo!). I’ve been pretty busy receiving awards and all.

My Mamma keeps trying to pull my head back out of the clouds but my friend Madi correctly pointed out that mini pigs do indeed fly so I’ve just been enjoying the view up here. Now that the awards season is slowing down, I’ll come back down for some snuggles. It has been getting cold all alone up there.

My Mamma yelled at me yesterday, as loud as she could manage, which I’m sorry to report has nothing on my squeal. I snorted at her the whole time, snorts of laughter, mind you. I’m not trying to bait her, but she is pretty funny when she is repeatedly yelling “bad Coccolino mini pig.” Me, bad?

Oh, why did she yell? I pooped in the living room again. Six days in a row as of yesterday, I’m proud to admit. Since I’ve been pretty good on my potty training lately, Mamma has let me have free reign of the house for limited periods.

I’ve found that if I take a poop break in the living room on my way up to the first garbage can in the Girl’s room (where I find lots of yummy remnants), I usually get away with it since Mamma is busy feeding lunch to the kids. It’s always right around noon when I go and Mamma remembers too late to come fetch me from all the way upstairs. I hide the poop in a tight spot behind the couch but the smell must catch her attention on her way to rescue me and that sets off her “bad Coccolino mini pig” rant.

Hey, I could have peed, right? That would have been much harder to clean up as Mamma knows from my peeing streak in the playroom up until recently.

I know some of you were wondering what my pig poop looks like and I’d love to share a photo but I know my Mamma would say that’s “distasteful” so I’ll just explain it. My poop consists of a bunch of pellets, each as small as a dime, round and perfectly hard. It’s so easy to clean up, I’m not sure why she’s complaining. Maybe I’ll slip in a picture one day while she’s busy feeding the kids lunch, hehe.

I really hope my free reign doesn’t end but you bet I’m going to try for seven days in a row. I’ve become fond of my pooping spot.

    Gee Cocco, if I were you, I’d be tempted to resist pooping behind the couch in exchange for free reign and access to upstairs garbage cans. If Mom gets too upset about the poop thing she MIGHT restrict you to certain areas of the house and – well – that wouldn’t be NEARLY as much fun! You know how you like to go all the way upstairs then scream to be rescued??? You’d miss that (and the garbage of course). Consider making the couch a poop-free zone…..I think your Mom would appreciate it!!

    Oh Cocco – snorts shaking head. I love reading about your adventures. We are two of a kind my friend. I’m not really sure which is worse. Your mom fussing or my mom who doesn’t fuss per say. My mom does a lot of counting. I’ve learned that three is not a good number. When she reaches that number it’s time to pay for the crime. Then afterwards, she ignores me for a bit. That is the worse! I do everything in my power then to get back on her good side. Times are tough my fellow oinker!

    Oh and I commend you in that picture. You had a pet bed. Mom started me with those until I found out that you can easily make them “blow up”. It’s very festive. Just sayin’

    You poo like a rabbit then?
    But I don’t think “pick between pee or poo” is a fair trade, your mom will always lose.
    I foresee a long term imprisonment for you if you don’t start behaving like a big pig.

    Cocco! Bad mini pig! No more indoor pooping! And just for the record, I, for one, can live a long happy life without seeing a photo of the poop. What if that becomes a trend, and all the furry friends start posting that naughty stuff!? Yikes.

    Love and licks,

    It sounds like Mom has good reason to be mad at you Cocco!!! Mom’s don’t want to clean up any kind of a MESS you make in the house Cocco!!!! You make NO MESS__BE GOOD!!!

    me thinks you might loose your house privilages if yous keeps this up Cocco! That’s what happened to my hairy slobbery sister Cinnamon when she did that! (She does not do it anymore though)

    Ummmm….seems like I remember a piggy who had to do his business outside in the snow. Maybe you should reconsider the potty break behind the couch. Losing access to the Girl’s garbage can may be the least that will happen šŸ˜‰

    Sounds like your piggy poop is easier than piggy pee so is that a bright side to the situation? When I had bunnies, they used to leave pellets all over too and then my beagle would clean them up!

    It sounds like your pellets look a little like deer droppings. Or maybe rabbit poo? I really will need to see photographs. Don’t make me google it! šŸ˜‰

    I like that you have a favorite pooping spot. It’s important in my opinion to have a good place to do that, although I can see why your mom isn’t too keen on your particular choice for defecating. You are a very naughty piggy! But those poos sound pretty easy to clean up. Unlike the urine…
