Hot Slut Of The Day!

Piglet, the pink puppy who is blind and deaf and teaching the children of the world about acceptance and perseverance!

When I woke up yesterday morning with the same familiar layer of WHY GOD WHY ME?! covering my charred soul, I figured the day’s news would be as disgusting as the day before, but who knew that my cold, dead insides would get a jolt of awwww-ness in the form of this story of a pink puppy who is living with blindness and deafness and using his disabilities to teach children about getting through life’s obstances. And since this is a G-rated Hot Slut of the Day post, I will not mention that if I squint my eyes, Piglet kind of looks like a pink peen with ears, eyes, and limbs. I know, I’m lying, like my dick-brained ass needs to squint my eyes to see that.

Sweet little Piglet started out life in a sad way by being born into the Georgia home of an animal hoarder who had 37 other puppies. Piglet was also born blind and deaf. After getting rescued and sent to a shelter, Piglet, who is a dachshund-Chihuahua mix, was fostered by Connecticut veterinarian Melissa Shapiro. Melissa tells People that she already had six dogs and Piglet required tons of care, so she wasn’t looking for another one, but who could let go of a pink puppy?!

“He was so anxious, he was screaming constantly. He would play, then go to sleep, but when he wasn’t doing either of those, he was screaming. I couldn’t leave the house the first month I had the dog here.

It was quite a decision to make. He is a lot of work and he is like a full-time job, taking care of a little disabled baby. But he’s so cute, and we couldn’t give him away at that point.”

Melissa wanted to share Piglet’s sweet pink light (that sounds nasty, but I didn’t mean for it to, I swear) with the world, so she gave him his own stage on Instagram which has grown to an audience of around 118,000. A teacher in Massachusetts saw Piglet’s page and it inspired her to use him to show her third-graders how getting through obstacles in life can lead to growth! That led to the Piglet Mindset Outreach Program, which is now taught in schools in Alabama, Connecticut, Japan, and Australia.

We were excited to open an envelope filled with letters from our 2nd grade friends We were excited to open an envelope filled with letters from our 2nd grade friends in Alabama. The children asked if Piglet is happy in his home. The answer- Absolutely! Despite being deaf and blind and tiny, Piglet is a happy little dog. He loves his home and his life. He loves his mom and dad and dog pack family, he loves going to work, he loves to travel, and he loves to visit classrooms to teach children about his Piglet Mindset. The children also asked why Piglet is deaf and blind. This is a complicated question with a complicated answer. Piglet was born in a hoarding situation. In his case, the people had three non-neutered dogs that bred to make more dogs, who bred to make more dogs, who bred to make even more dogs… and so it went that 3 dogs became 37 dogs in their small apartment. One of those 37 was Piglet. With an overpopulation of unwanted dogs, we should not be allowing dogs to breed in this way. Making matters worse, many of the dogs in Piglet’s situation were dapple color patterned. When two dapple colored dogs breed there is a 25% chance that the babies will be “double dapple” meaning that they receive a dominant dapple gene from each parent. Double dapple dogs are white or mostly white and many have congenital ear and eye defects which cause them to be deaf and or blind. Piglet has both- he is deaf and blind. Piglet’s original people did not intentionally breed two dapples. They were in over their heads and things got out of control. Thankfully a rescue group came in to help. Piglet is one of the lucky ones. Many dogs like Piglet are euthanized by breeders if rescue groups don’t come forward. Many end up in shelters or abandoned on the streets. Piglet’s Mission includes educating about the severe consequences of double dapple breeding, and encouraging people to adopt special needs pets. We have created educational PDFs and lesson plans for teachers to incorporate Piglet Mindset into their curriculum. Learn more about our Piglet Mindset Educational Outreach Program.

Piglet does make money through Instagram ads, but instead of injecting that money into his lips or ass, or using it to buy a Calabasas tract mansion, like other influencers do, he donates it to shelters that focus on animals with special needs. So far Piglet and his human have donated $30,000.

Melissa says they aren’t slowing down and hope to expand the Piglet Mindset Outreach Program to other schools.

This is what a grown Piglet looks like today:

Whenever I’m feeling like this world is nothing but a flaming shit can, I will turn to Piglet to see goodness and pink adorableness. So basically, I’ll be on Piglet’s page every other second. And as I type this, my dog is probably hiding the Clorox, beets, and clippers while thinking, “Stupid bitch better not even think of shaving me and dying me pink.”
