My Mini Pet Pig . . . and Pals!

A model pig

OK, Coccolino has fully shamed me straight back to my computer. So sorry we were missing for that long!

I think realistically I might try to blog two weeks on, two weeks off – or more if I possibly can. I have to juggle my time between my shop and blog and regular household chores all within my six alone hours per week and that usually doesn’t cut it 🙂 I want to make sure when I blog I get around to visiting everyone, much to Cocco’s squealing insistence, and when I don’t think it will be possible I wait to blog until I have more time. I just wanted to let you know so you don’t go wondering where we have disappeared to (though it’s safe to say Cocco will be hiding under his blankets whenever not at the computer).

Anyway, now that we are here, enough of where we have been! I promised some wonderful pictures a while back and I am happy to share them with all of you. My sweet piggy is just “a-dor-able” as my daughter says.

A professional photographer friend of mine, Faye, started Piccadilly Post Photography a while back and has taken some priceless piggy pictures.

Back in the summer, the kids had a tea party with Cocco.

This is my favorite picture of all:


And a couple of the kids:



You all saw the recent holiday picture:

And then a picture of me and my sweet pig:


One very cooperative piggy, I must say. And one very talented friend to capture those seconds of cooperation!

See you all later this week 🙂

    Oh all those pictures are all just lovely, but yes, I agree, the top one is the the best of all.
    Toodle pip!
    PS Gail and I read your blog simply ‘cos we like reading the blog, and that is pleasure enough. If we comment we don’t believe that this in any way makes you obliged to visit us in return so you must not go around feeling guilty.

      Thank you Gail and Bertie – I REALLY appreciate that because my guilt often takes over that I don’t get around as often as I’d like (not to mention how often Cocco would like).

    Cocco, I see a future for you in modeling! You look SO handsome, and your family isn’t bad either… 🙂 GREAT pictures! Good job not jumping on the table to steal tea party foods.

    Love and licks,

    Absolutely precious photographs – ALL of them………….your photographer friend has a definite knack of capturing “THE” moment…..which isn’t always easy to do!

    Hugs, Pam and Sam

    I so agree that is a wonderful photo. And you are a super model, even that girl named Coco Chewnel would say: YES! maybe your name is the magic key? or because you are the one and only super-cocco?

    Awesome pictures indeed my friends!! We have missed you but we understand the juggling. It’s hard for sure! We’ve learned that here too with the addition of Houdini. Take care of ya’ll and know we think of you often ((Hogs and snout kisses)). XOXO – Bacon
    P.S. Your little people are growing so fast!!

    Absolutely adorable! I love the top one with cute little Cocco the best (it really looks like a magazine cover), but they’re all gorgeous! of course, it certainly doesn’t hurt that your kids are a-dor-able too!

    Goodness, Coccolino darling, you look dashing, of course! We crabby girls are so very proud of you and you do an excellent job of entertaining the mini-two leggers. POL They are adorable too.
    Ciao and Little Pinches,

    those photos are COMPLETELY darling!! Love them! What about just blogging 3 days per week instead of every other week…with every other week you might lose readers (consistency is important!) I would strive for 3 days per week, even two……and that’s it! xoxo

      Thanks Caren, you are right and I appreciate your input. I just need to figure out how to do it! I haven’t wanted to stop blogging but sometimes I just can’t get around to everyone and then I feel guilty. I have to find my balance somehow…thanks for hanging in there and for your advice.
