Oh, I'm in this month, for sure : -)

I think we can manage a winter-themed layout too, given that the snow is higher than the pup is tall.

Thanks Marci.

I know you think a "winter theme" will thwart my desert dwelling self, but I lived in Michigan for 6 years and owned a Great Dane then too!

Winter theme.... hmmmm...
It doesn't have to be snowy, just wintery, right?
And in CA "wintery" is still like 70 degrees...
So...
maybe just maybe I can get the twist in "CA style"!
Either way, twist or not, I'm in!

CA style? That day we had to wear a hoodie while walking the dog?

Although...I know someone who has a couple of Great Danes (not me! I only have one) and she does have coats for them.

You guys... I want a beagle so bad!
Snoopy is my favorite cartoon character and I just think that, in general, beagles are so cute!

But I already have 3 animals, one is a mini-pig who is currently going through his "terrible twos" , so I don't see getting a beagle, or any other animal, any time soon....
I guess I will just have to enjoy yours!!!

  • Scrapanda Said:

Compared to a farm pig... yes, he is!
Which is why they are called "mini" pigs....
The misconception is a Mini pig stays "little" forever...
They don't!
They just never grow as a large as a typical farm pig which can be quite large.
A mini-pig can grow to be 200 pounds and they are still considered mini!
Crazy, huh?!

From the internet:

Miniature pig -

A miniature pig is a breed of pig developed and used for medical research or as a pet. Miniature pigs weigh between 50–150+ pounds when fully grown. Mini pig has become an acceptable term that is used to distinguish the difference between farm pigs and smaller breeds such as potbellied pigs.

-Wikipedia


Anybody who wants a mini-pig needs to do a lot of research first!
We did so we weren't surprised.
We are estimating Hamlet at no more than 80 pounds currently, though he is just barely up to my knees (if that).
They are wide and short so for all their weight, they are very compact!

Well I suppose I knew that any pig that was possible to keep as a 'pet' has to be smaller than a farm pig but he just looks so big in your pics! But if you're saying 80lbs...my Tucker dog is 150lb! LOL!

first SNOW By Armymom16

Love this little guy! With my husband working in the oil business he travels most of the year and only home a few weeks out of the year (most years). Then I am getting used to no kids in the house now that my youngest is off to the Army. This little guys has truly been a life saver this past year more than he will ever know.

Oh and I did the optional twist: Winter Theme
