Piggy Bank

I not really a dog or cat person. This probably has to do with the fact that I was terrified of dogs for most of my childhood and even to this day, they sense my apprehension. When I get my own apartment one day, I still do want a pet and after hearing about this breed of domesticated miniature house pigs, I was dead set on getting one. I mean just look at them....too cute, right? I did some research on them and found they aren't more than 20 lbs when full grown, use a litter box, and are relatively clean (which is not a word I usually associate with pigs...). But then I saw the price tag - $5,000!!!! Of course that killed the dream right away - 5 grand for a mini pig? Sigh. Perhaps if I win the lottery this purchase would seem a bit more reasonable. The idea of having a miniature pig that you could take for walks and name it something grand like Isabella or Frankfurt (I would love to give a pig a royal, grandiose sounding name...it would be so ironic) just sounds too fun! Oh well, when pigs fly!

I always think of the posts Agathe of Style Bytes did on her pet pig. It sounded like a challenging animal. Sort of like a border collie in its need to be entertained.

I have wanted a potbellied pig since I was 7-years-old. I have read books, done research, everything. Obviously, I still don't have one; but I love them SO much! Cutest. Picture. Ever!! :)

Oh my goodness, so cute! I heard they were pricey, but I didn't know they were that expensive. My dog actually kind of looks like a pig though (she's a Pekingese), so close enough :)

I'm so not a dog or cat person either. I try to be all nice when they're around me but i can never fool anybody. I'm way too jumpy.
