The Pig Trend in Pop Culture #7: pet Tea Cup pigs http://bit.ly/XPfB1e
After humans, monkeys & dolphins, pigs are next in line on the intelligence food chain. As pets, they enjoy company, like to watch TV and are capable of convo. However, these sweeties grow to the size of a mammoth Claes Oldenberg tea cup - weighing upwards of 60 pounds, which eliminates the possibility of any annoying Paris Hilton-like purse-schlepping of one's porcine pet.
Trainers of pet pigs also warn that these minis love lazing around, so daily walks are important for keeping them fit & fab. Plus, being smart, they're good at manipulating their owners, so spoiling them too much is probably not the best idea ever ... especially when you consider what could happen when your 100+ pound pet has a temper tantrum or petulant public meltdown.
