This not-so-little piggie went “wee wee wee” all the way into his owner’s engagement photos. 

Before Kristin Hartness fell in love with her fiancé Jay, she fell for Ziggy the 250-pound pig. 

“I love Ziggy more than anything in the world, I see him as my human child trapped in a pig suit that will never grow up,” Hartness told PEOPLE in an email. 

But her baby boy wasn’t always so big. When Hartness first met Ziggy he was a 25-pound piglet, and she was told the oinker wouldn’t get too much larger than that. 

“I went online and found a baby pig that the owner said would be no more than 25 pounds which was perfect! He’d stay small enough that I could continue doing what I loved to do and that was to travel!,” Ziggy’s mom explained. “It didn’t take long for me to realize my boy wasn’t going to be small and my life was changed forever in a BIG way.”

“This change in size didn’t stop Hartness from involving Ziggy in every part of her life. This includes starting a Facebook account, Ziggy the Traveling Piggy, featuring photos of the pair’s travels, and inviting the pig to be part of her engagement session. 

“He doesn’t mold to fit our lives. We mold our lives to fit his,” Hartness said. “We absolutely wanted him in a few pictures, but he thought he needed to be in all of them. “

The result was a series of adorable shots that capture the bond of this bizarre, but beautiful family.
