My Mini Pet Pig . . . and Pals!


Coccolino is ONE today! It’s hard to believe he is already one and we have had him for almost a full year. What mischief he has caused. What mischief he STILL causes – every day. Phew.

This is a picture of Cocco when we first got him:

...and how are we going to get him back into his crate?!

Here he was next to Lacci:

Next to our cat

Remember that?

Here he is now next to the same water dish:

Pigs grow for three years and this has only been one year. He currently weighs around 15-16 pounds though feels heavier than that! It is very compact weight so he is still small, just dense.

Thank you for celebrating this day with us. Cocco will be getting watermelon (including the rind), cucumbers with cream cheese and pizza with peanut butter for his special day. That will give him a head start on his year two growing!

    Happy birthday. You are so cute. Mummy says that there is no way she is going to show your blog to sister.
    Sister really wants a mini pig and if she saw how cute you are, she would pester mummy until she got one. Love Nellie and Jasper, the two bestest maremmas in all the land.

    Happy Birthday little Cocco! It’s my birthday today too! I’m just a little bit older than you though. Did you know that we live near each other?
