    Great article! Your story tells it all. Unfortunately, people do not know how difficult at times it can be having a pet pig. This is why there are so many abandoned pigs. Just look at the pig rescues. People spend a lot of money, for what they believe is going to be a mini pig. As time goes by their mini pig is l00 lbs. plus, if they are lucky.
    Our pig is 3 years old now, about 50 lbs. He was purchased from a reputable breeder (licensed with the state,) 8 weeks, 3 lbs. We did our homework, Tex is the size we expected, his parents were 50-60 lbs. We love him. At times he can be difficult. My husband says he has “cat attitude.” It’s his way, when he wants to be friendly or not. Very vocal. We have to keep him in check always. When we brought him home we gave him a designated space, just for him. Our laundry room is his room only. He has a large crate with lots of blankets, his water bowl, toys and litter box. We put up a child gate with a cut out, so he can go in and out as he pleases (we have 5 other pets) so this is his space only. Works out great! In the winter he uses his litter box when the weather here in Ct. is bad, nice weather he rarely uses it. Makes life easier, no accidents. Pigs need boundaries. We are the boss, which we have to remind him from time to time. Tex is a full time job. We love him and he is in his forever home. Would we ever get another pig, probably not.

      So so true! They are definitely a full time job. It sounds like you have a great setup for him. Cocco only has accidents if he is trying to make a point (left in his room at a time he should have free reign, food a little later than usual, etc). It can be frustrating but pigs do give back so much. It’s just a lot of work and like you said, probably one pig for us too!

    In some respects its a bit like having a rabbit,except without the noise.Speedy has the odd accident too but normally he doesn’t do it again but he is a chewer….but that is what buns do they Chew but they are forever like a toddler too.
    It’s great to hear from you on your blog,its been such a while.And to hear about your growing family is wonderful,xx Rachel and Speedy

    Great update! Coco is looking as gorgeous as ever, and I love the baby. I wish I could taste his fingers, too! Babies are delicious.

    Love and licks,

    So nice to hear from you! We can only imagine what it’s like to have a mini pig and a baby. But we love that you are teaching your children how to respect animals…and teaching Coco how to respect humans. Something tells us the latter is the more difficult struggle. 🙂

    What a fab post, and so lovely to read. I feel the same about some of Poppy’s mischief and that’s without the baby to juggle! The way she has destroyed the carpet in my front room, and the times she has pulled the wallpaper off the wall… I keep having to take a deep breath and remember it’s only materialistic.

    You are inspirational for dealing with so much, and putting up with it. The fact with everything that is going on you are taking time to teach Coco – I just want to give you a massive thank you hug. You are aces!!

      Thank you so much. It sure is a lesson in patience! The carpet is the hardest, isn’t it? Having to replace it is so frustrating and the day to day life. Even without the baby the gates would be up and we always have to check our backs to make sure it has been pig-preventable! Thanks so much for your kind words.

    Oh my, seriously we were just thinking about you the other night and here you are! If I’d know you’d post I would have though of you sooner. We’ve been missing you too.

    How nice to hear from you!! I was hoping everyone was O.K! Congratulations on your new baby! My mini pig, Daisy is now 3 years old. She has had to move 3 times in her short life. The circumstances were different with each home we were in. I did not even attempt to let her in with carpet in the house. She has been outside for over 1 year now, and she is fine. I would like to have another mini-pig for company for her. I take her out for walks in the yard (3 acres). I do not have a fence (she has a very large pen area that is fenced, with an igloo). I have hand fed her since she was a baby, so she does not bite. She loves to run and explore and she has freedom because she comes when I call her. I hope to train her more because she loves the stimulation. I respect her needs to have freedom outside, but having her inside for more than a short time, effects my needs to keep my home under control with the rest of the family and pets. I also love animals very much (I even put spiders outside when they come inside, instead of squishing them). With Cocolino growing tusks, I would be leary of him being inside with the baby. I love that you are posting all of this because it is not all the glamour that is marketed. Once I have adopted a pet, it is forever. Thanks for your honesty about how it really is, no matter how much we love them, things are always changing, and it is good to keep us up on our toes!!

      So good to hear from you and hear your experience. Daisy is very lucky to have found you. It sounds like you really have figured out how to make having a pig work for you. It is so tough. That’s wonderful that you would like to add another pig. Adding one can be tough since they need to sort out their dominance but if you are determined to do it, I think it would be so nice for Daisy. Having a pig outside would probably make life easier for us but I just can’t imagine doing it now after all this time and we have a backyard fox that is very respectful of our space but not sure that fox wouldn’t be tempted with a small pig nearby! Thanks so much for your comment and give Daisy a little piggy kiss from Cocco!

    Well thank you for the honest and wonderful story and advise. I loved walking in your shoes for a while through the story. You’re not only a good pic Mommy you’re a good people mommy and a wonderful storyteller. Maybe you should write a book about your Piggly Wigglyou and family life with humans.
