Update: Not fakes!!! The owner has written and given us the full story as well as new photos.
A lot of the Dachshund groups and forums are reporting a back story for the piglet adopted by a wiener dog Mom into her litter of puppies. But instead of satisfying my curiosity, it’s making me a little bit suspicious. The story, which includes an introductory paragraph and captions for the photos, just seems too pat. And, I’m starting to wonder about some of the photos too. What do you Photoshop experts think? And how about the rest of you — am I turning into a conspiracy theorist or is this all too good to be true?
Here’s the supposed explanation: “She is fostering this guy for another mom who couldn’t take care of him. He had his eyes closed, but now they are open. He is just a little bigger than her other pups. She loves this little guy more than the other puppies and she is nursing him back to health. He is the cleanest puppy ever because she licks him all the time.”
And here are the captions:
- This is “Pink” short for pig&tink
- Pink and the puppies nursing
- He nurses all the time
- Sleeping with his siblings
- He is sooo cute
- Tink is very protective over Pink
- She keeps him close to her
- The family sleeping
