My Mini Pet Pig . . . and Pals!

Pig and puppy bonding

As our perpetually nonstop weeks progress, so does the pig and puppy bonding.


Pixie is at Coccolino’s every beck and call; she simply wants him to acknowledge her and she isn’t afraid to make him. The second she sees him in the morning, she doesn’t leave his side. He has grown rather tolerant and even lets her tag along on his food scrounging missions. Don’t be mistaken though – he is in charge. He gets the food and she only gets to lick his yummy lips.


I usually swoop in and rescue Cocco from the “playing” because he just wants to stop and enjoy some sun. He hasn’t been able to do that without his little black and white shadow, shadowing his piggy body and stealing his sun.


Sometimes pig even follows puppy. She went into her little tent (door kept open for her to go in and out) and they just stood together until she started to try to play.


Right after this photo was snapped, I heard the unmistakable sound of urine hitting the floor of the tent. As I was about to grab Pixie and run her out, I glare in frustration at Cocco as he looks at me during his minute long marathon pee. I can’t pick him up mid-pee because he will pee all the way until he gets outside, leaving a lovely trail. Oh Cocco…

He made up for messing her tent by joining her on a children’s chair during showtime. They squished in together and got comfy.


Even though Pixie is right in Cocco’s face most of the day, even he can’t refuse the warmth of her sweet face resting peacefully on his back.


Bringing you pig and puppy progress in big batches!

    Naughty Cocco. Pixie’s tent isn’t a bathroom. Sounds like your taking 2 piggie steps forward and one piggie step back. Hang in there, buddy.

    Love and licks,

    Well, the bonding is good in one respect – no fighting between them! That would be a disaster…..LOL……they will probably be best buddies once the energy level of Pixie calms a bit as she ages into “older puppyhood”……it’s great the Cocco is enjoying her company a bit….although the peeing thing might have been more an attempt to take over her tent than because he really needed to pee just then! HAHAHA

    I just <3 it! At least they are together and playing somewhat well. Mom is still too afraid of putting me and the little guy here together – not to mention taking snaps of pictures. She has her eagle eye out on us at all times. She's afraid that the little Yorkie might jump me at any minute and cause chaos. I just roll my piggy eyes at her. The woman *never* stops worrying. Will you tell her to let it go a bit Cocco? Please. Thanks! XOXO – Bacon

    Good to know ’bout not pickin’ up a pig, mid-pee. Actually, Peep #1 says the same thing applies to cats although I know she CERTAINLY NEVER experienced that with me. MOUSES!
