This adorable pig is Chris P. Bacon.
Asides from having a hilarious name (or a name at all), Chris P. Bacon is a special pig. According to his owner Len Lucero, Chris was born with congenital defect that prevents him from using his hind legs. (For the record, Chris is being raised as a pet, not for the slaughter house.)
This is how 10-day old Chris gets around without any help:
Despite his condition, his owner saw no reason as to why a Chris P. Bacon can’t be screaming YOLO alongside the best of them, so Lucero built Chris his very own wheelchair made out of K’nex pieces.
Walkin’ Wheels has since donated a real pet wheelchair, but until Chris grows a little bigger, he’ll have to stick with his toy wheelchair. Soon he’ll be zipping down the road with the best of them.
You go, Chris P. Bacon! You go chase after your little piggy dreams!
Imagine if, in the innocence of your childhood, you had an obnoxious pig attached to your back? Does the thought of that bring you some strange form of joy? Thought so. I’ve noticed lately that humans are absolutely obsessed with pigs. They’re unique little creatures that make weird calls in the wild, which I think is a huge part of their appeal. PETSAMI has uploaded this video of a pig literally attaching himself to a child’s back. This makes me think — do pigs love humans as much as we adore them? The two in the video seem like true bffs. I feel as though this video symbolizes the infinite cohort between man and pig, especially from an early age.

Mega Star George Clooney is mourning the loss of his beloved potbelly pet pig, Max.
The actor’s publicist, Stan Rosenfield, said Max, 19, died in Clooney’s Hollywood home peacefully of natural causes.
“Max, like any pet, became a member of the family,” Rosenfield said. “He was a big pig, as pigs go. I can’t tell you how much he weighed.”
Clooney wasn’t able to be with Max during his final hours as he was out of town promoting his new film, “The Good German.”
In an interview last February, Clooney told 60 Minutes the two shared the same bed.
“Usually, he sleeps on the foot of my bed, but he’s gotten so fat in the last year.”
Clooney and Max spent the last 18 years together and is reportedly Clooney’s longest relationship.
