Mama dog nurses more than her pups

Remember internet superstars Pink and Tink, the infamous dachshund dog who nursed a piglet? Keep reading to get an update with a side of conspiracy.

If you are one of the few who hasn’t heard about this dynamic duo you can view the original story and pics here.

Since news broke back in early 08 and forwarded photos began flying around cyberspace, there have been some interesting developments in this piglet pooch saga.

For one, some doubters started questioning whether the photos were real! Come on people. Sure, Photoshop can do some amazing things. But I’m gonna go with….WHY? Why would anyone waste their time Photoshopping photos of a piglet nursing from a dog?

One such theorist who shall remain nameless (unless you click here) at least fessed up to his temporary bout of paranoia and contacted the owner. Good for him! He posted the owner’s reply along with new (also unaltered) photos.

There are some juicy updates about Pink and Tink in the owner’s reply. In it you’ll learn that Pink was born premature and lives on a 4 H farm, and will remain with his wiener dog family and not be adopted. Trust me, it’s a fun read!

Lastly, would you believe there’s a book about Pink and Tink called The Pink Puppy: A True Story of a Mother’s Lovebook If anyone’s read it, please leave a comment and let us know what you think.

  1. […] the owner put 2 and 2 together and the rest is internet history. You can read more about them in my What’s New with the Daschund Nursing Piglet blog post. Tequila and a Six […]

    • OMG!!! I hadn’t seen that one! Thanks for sharing…this is soooo cute!

  2. I had seen the photos of the doxie nursing the beautiful velvet piglet many times. It was nice to see the photos of piggie a little bigger. This was so long ago, I wonder whatever became of Pink? Hopefully he’s still alive and happy. He’d likely be about 500-600 lbs at 2 years old, but since he was the runt, maybe he’s smaller. I wonder if there is any way to find out where he is now.
