Petpiggies micro pigs meet residents of Bupa care home in Biggleswade

We would like to thank Claire Kenning and her team at Bupa's Abbotsbury Residential Home in Biggleswade for their kind invitation to Petpiggies to visit and meet some of their residents.

Our micro pigs have enjoyed several trips to care homes this year, most with residents suffering with advanced Dementia, and it's no surprise each visit brings us firmly back down to Earth.

You cannot help being reminded that showing kindness, caring and giving to others is a wonderful gift especially when offered to people in old age.

Paul Cocken Creates Amazing Micro Pig Images for Petpiggies

There's no denying we love taking the odd picture of our beautiful micro pigs at Petpiggies as anyone who has visited our website or Facebook, Flickr and Pinterest pages knows all too well!

So imagine how excited we were with news of photographer and expert image manipulator Paul Cocken returning to the UK after living and working in Brazil for the past years.

Paul Cocken is the genius behind some of the most incredible animal images we've ever seen including 'Dogs Painting' and 'Guinea Pig Games'.

The Kissing Micro Pigs

Having our little piggies around us these past years has done nothing to diminish our interest and fascination with these wonderful animals.

Not much beats a sunny day, cold drink and time spent relaxing with our piggies, it just never gets boring.

We travelled to Bedford today with 6 piglets to help support a local charity and as always the piglets generated a huge amount of interest from hundreds of people who clearly share our love of pigs.

Rub-a-Dub-Dub, 3 micro pigs in a tub

Petpiggies often get calls from people wanting to meet our micro pigs and use piglets in all aspects of the media including videos, TV Commercials, magazines, newspapers and promotional events.

As you can imagine any self respecting micro pig that's likely to be seen in the press would want to look their very best.
