Where Did It Go?

When we were busy stuffing Pinniped into various objects this fall, I decided to test if this year's Christmas photo prop would work with the pigs.  So I plopped Pinni in the candy tin, gave her a tomato, and got the following result.  What a dope.


Pinni is just so darn curious.  We love how animated her nose is when she's been picked up or placed in an unfamiliar spot.  After all, it's that nose that made me fall in love with her in the first place.
 
Along with Pinni's snout is her bottomless pit of a stomach.  When she's wagging her nose all over the place, it's usually questing for food.  Pinni is endlessly good-natured.  I think it comes from a steadfast faith that there's an edible reward at the end of whatever snorgling or pig torture she's enduring.

This was very true when we took her solo Christmas photos. This is a close up of a very stretched out Pinni, jaw wide open, going for that last little bit of celery (original photo can be seen here in the bottom right).  Can you see the little bit of bottom teeth?  I feared, briefly, for my fingers.  Chomp! 

Being cute can be such rewarding work.
