March 26, 2013 at 10:40 am | In West Seattle news, WS miscellaneous | 25 Comments

This week, the daily preview seems to be taking an unplanned brief break from bird photos. These pals turned up in the WSB inbox, courtesy of Eric Shalit from Box Turtle Design – that’s his little Piggy with poodle friend Django, who belongs to Eric’s friend, West Seattle author Conrad Wesselhoeft. Now on to the calendar highlights:

  1. What? Is that minuscule piglet real? Is that poodle laughing? I’m viewing from my phone. Omg…is this what hallucinating feels like? I’m never eating Girl Scout cookies for breakfast again…

  2. Looks like the perfect size for throwing the pigskin around.

  4. That photo sure made me smile this morning. And Heather’s comment made me laugh out loud because I thought something very similar. Is this real?

  5. Yes, it’s very real. If you follow the link to Conrad’s website, for example, you’ll find out more about Django the poodle. And Eric is a real person too, longtime WSB reader and occasional photo contributor, though I don’t know if Piggy has a webpage :) – TR

  11. Wait, an off-leash dog AND off-leash pig? Oh the horror!! (I couldn’t resist)

  12. I cannot stop looking at this photo! It is perfect.

  13. The pig says to the poodle, “where’d ya’ get your nails done honey?” :)

  14. That piggy should have a web page – if only to show us more photos, and let us learn about it’s happy West Seattle life!

  15. o.k.-one more time, if I open my eyes and I STILL see a pig I’ll quit eating cat poop..

  16. Is West Seattle zoned, or what ever it would be, for pet piggies? I know a lot of people have urban chicken farms!

  17. All the best to Mr. Seevers. To AS #1 (Pinehurst K-8) his school before Sanislo, he was irreplaceable.

  18. Oh no! The breeders that came up with the ‘golden doodle’(golden retriever/poodle) are aiming for a ‘piggle’, or a ‘poodglet’. A ‘swine-doole’??!! Really cute little pig though.

    Comment by KD — 8:03 pm March 26, 2013 #

  19. Please. Must know…what kind of piggie is that? Details please. I vote for the web page and no more Girl Scout cookies.

    Comment by N Admiral — 9:22 pm March 26, 2013 #

  20. yeah, um… is that an off-leash pig?

    Comment by moji — 12:28 am March 27, 2013 #

  21. +1 for more pig info :)

    Comment by bianca — 11:29 am March 27, 2013 #

  22. That is NOT a real pig. Sorry, I wish it were because I’d get one.

  23. While we’re at it, are the animals in Charlotte’s Web real? I need to know. Is the dog in the photo real? Is it really smiling? Is the photo real? Is the internet real? The only thing I’m sure of is that the internet is controlled by cats.

  24. Don’t be silly. That pig is real. I’m cloning it in my garage as we speak. I’m also posting an ad in hopes of hiring someone to help me create a line of “wee-pig wear”…. :)

    Comment by Heather — 5:06 pm March 27, 2013 #

  25. It’s clear that Django’s love for Piggy is real!
