    A month-old [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]piglet[/COLOR][/COLOR] who was born without the use of his back legs has been given a new wheelchair for Valentine's Day.

    Florida piglet Chris P Bacon made headlines last month when his owner and vet, Len Lucero, uploaded a video of him on YouTube.
    He had made Chris a wheelchair from K'nex toys and, having outgrown his last chair, he has now got a new mode of transport. Eventually the piglet will use a dog wheelchair.
    Chris was brought to Lucero by a woman who wanted to have him put down because of his disability.
    The piglet's first set of wheels were made from K'nex toys (Facebook)

    However, Lucero decided Chris [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]deserved[/COLOR][/COLOR] another chance and posted a video of the piglet online.

    Since then, Chris has amassed a huge following, with over 17,000 fans on Facebook and one of his videos having over 500,000 views.
    On his Facebook page, the piglet says: "My name is Chris P. Bacon. I am a pig in a wheelchair. My veterinarian Dr Len Lucero decided that I needed to be given a second chance.
    Chris had outgrown his last wheelchair (Reuters)

    "A young woman reluctantly brought me to Dr Lucero and asked that I be euthanized because she did not know what kind of life I would have. I have a congenital defect that affects my rear legs, but I am otherwise happy and healthy.
    "I went home with Dr Lucero that day, so that I would have a chance at life as a handicapped pig. I live in Florida and love my new life! Thanks for sharing it with me!"
    Lucero said: "He's cute. He grunts. And he's got a pretty cute little wheelchair.
    Len Lucero constructed a new set of wheels (Reuters)

    "He was healthy and I was afraid he would have eventually met his maker.
    "He just makes me happy. [I get] three or four hours of sleep a night, if that, because I'm trying to keep up with all his media."
    "I want my piggy to be famous. My goal is to put him out there because he makes people happy."

    Me too! George Clooney has been the proud owner of pet pigs. Chris P. Bacon looks like he's smiling in the first picture. Too cute.

    I think of Designing Women and Suzanne's pet pig, Noel.

    Just kill me now. Can't take it. Too much. Do pigs like to be kissed and hugged?
