These are pictures of Pink (the piglet) and Tink (the mommy doxie)
Tink lives on a farm where pigs are raised. A sow delivered 12 pigs and several were very small. Pink was the smallest and he was born with his eyes sealed shut.
Piglets are born with their eyes open and are very active and ready to nurse within a few minutes. He didn't have any suck reflex. He was too weak to stand up and nurse.
Tink had had puppies a few days before and had only one puppy (the other was stillborn). One of Tink's sisters had a litter of pups a few days earlier. Tink fostered a few of them. The piglet was brought to the house to see if Tink would nurse him since she accepted the other puppies so well. She is a very loving, sweet dog. She immediately loved on him and began licking him and let him nurse.
PINK AT 2 1/2 WEEKS:
PINK IS GROWING AND GROWING:
His owners took him to the vet for a check up Pink weighed in at 2 1/2 lbs. His doxie siblings weighed between 2 and 3lbs. His pig siblings weighed about 20 to 30+lbs.
