This is one of the cutest books I have ever read!
It is the true story of a family who owns a farm and brings the runt of a litter of piglets (Pink) into their home to care for him. Their Dachshund (Tink) - who has a litter of her own puppies - adopts him as her own and takes care of him.
Filled with actual photos of this little piglet and his Dachshund family, this book will make you ooh and aww at every page. While I have heard of mother animals adopting outside of their species before, what surprised me more about this story was that Pink's adopted siblings continued to want to play with him after he moved back into the barn. I also especially love the end photo - grown Pink and his adopted mother, Tink. :) Awww .... I smile just thinking about it.
Little Pink Pup has reaffirmed my desire to have a pet pig one day ... but if that's not possible, maybe a dachshund? :)
