Meet Paddington Baird.

Not too far outside Chicago, in Northwest Indiana, lives a small town pig that goes by the name of Paddington Baird (pronounced Bear-d). Paddy (one of her many nicknames) has a pretty intense inner monologue which mainly consists of her justifying why she should get more snacks, that no one fed her (she is always lying) and how much she loves her mom. Paddy lives with her human mom, dad, and brother and their newest piggy addition, Fozzie. PE🐽NY: Have you always wanted a pig? I was in 4-H growing up and was around a lot of farm animals. That is when I fell in love with pigs. In sixth grade I got a pot belly pig. While I love those sweet smooth noses of a pot belly, I also really like the “traditional” pig look so we decided on a Juliana pig. The longer snout and leaner frame reminded me so much of the pigs I had on the farm.  PE🐽NY: How did getting Paddington develop? I have very severe allergies and therefore a more traditional pet was not …

Meet Blue.

Take yourself to the beautiful beaches of Palm Beach County, Florida. Home of PGA Golf, Vanilla Ice and a beautiful little pig that dons the name Blue Sweetness Duran. As if the town of Wellington didn’t have enough sunshine, Blue adds 45 pounds more. You can find this little princess at home with her Mommy and Daddy and their red-footed tortoise, ball python snake, two sugar gliders and two aquariums. PE🐽NY: When did you get Blue? We picked her up in October, 2014. She was born August 25, 2014.  PE🐽NY: Have you always wanted a pig? I have ALWAYS loved pigs but I never thought it was a possibility for me to have one since I didn’t live on a farm. When I moved in with my fiancé I knew we had to have a pet. Naturally, we were looking to rescue a dog. However, I began to research pet pigs and learned they made amazing house pets, and it quickly became clear to us that we had to have one! PE🐽NY: Where did Blue come from? It just so …

Meet Abby.

Connecticut is known for its beautiful 250-mile shoreline and housing the prestigious Yale University. This state is also the home of John Mayer, Mark Twain and the ever-so-perfect and smile-inducing Abby. A year and a half of precious life and 60 pounds of pure love, I introduce to you, Abby, the pink piggy. PE🐽NY: Can you please describe Abby’s family? Abby lives with her human Mom, Dad, 3 adult children (2 girls, 1 boy), 4 dogs, a cat, and Pablo (our other pig). PE🐽NY: When did you get Abby? We got her November 30, 2014. She was born October 13, so she was about six weeks old when we got her.  PE🐽NY: What was the inspiration in getting her? We had a potbelly pig for 15 years. Once he passed away (at 18), it just felt weird not having a pig around. Everyone LOVED our pig, Arnold. Friends, family and even our UPS/FedEx delivery guys would always ask about him.  PE🐽NY: Where did Abby come from? We had rescued a pig who came from Miami, Florida. Frankie. Sadly, we were his 8th home …

Meet Bacon.

Cancun is known for its white sand beaches, near-perfect weather and bright-blue waters. As of today, I am officially adding Mr. Bacon the PigStar to this list.  There is no way you can look at this blue-eyed, extremely handsome pig and not smile. Bacon, born and raised in Mexico, will be turning one at the end of December and weighs in at around 39 pounds.  He resides in Cancun with his loving parents. PE🐽NY: Have you always wanted a pig?  I have always wanted a pig, but for my husband the idea of actually having one was absurd.  When I went from looking at them on the internet to actually thinking of getting one, he told me that I was being ridiculous, haha.  After some time and a lot of work, I managed to convince my husband, and now he is crazy about the pig!  Sometimes I think he loves Mr. Bacon more than he loves me, haha. PE🐽NY: What finally inspired you to get one?  I have always been an animal lover.  When we moved to …
