When we first launched Digg the social share site there were several things that went viral. Different viral videos and different funny memes. One of the most shocking things was pictures of teacup pigs. For some reason these little guys captured the hearts of many people. There has been a long growing debate on whether or not these micro teacup pigs actually exist or not. From the research we have done there seems to be some teacup pigs that actually do say smaller but most end up larger and the size of pot belly pigs. This trend came over from the europe. They have even been featured in a in a Chase bank commercial. That commercial aired during the olympics and we saw a huge spike in teacup pig interest. This will be interesting to watch. Will pigs some day be as common as cats and dogs as pets? They seem to be taking off in Asia right now.
Update: We forgot to mention Micro pig is a phrase we also connected to teacup pig. There is a lot of hype and people love their pigs. Everyone who owns a pig seems to be impressed by their intelligence. They really are an amazing animal. Very intelligent. They can walk around parks. They are really good with child as well.
