Life Got You Down? Watch This Adorable Piglet!

Life Got You Down? Watch This Adorable Piglet!

By Vadim Newquist

Len Lucero, DVM

Ever have one of those days where it seems like everyone and everything around you is conspiring to make your life miserable? Or do you ever feel like you just don't have what it takes to deal with the stress of your day to day? Well, meet Chris P. Bacon, a plucky little baby piglet who has big problems, but never allows them to get him down. Chris was born crippled, with two dysfunctional hind legs. Fortunately for this scamp, his owner had a creative solution, an ingenious little two wheeled contraption he built for Chris out of the Lego-like toys, K'nex. It allows him mobility, and aside from that, it just looks cool!

Of course, critters this adorable are what the internet was made for, so Chris P. Bacon is becoming quite the internet star. We can all learn a lot from him. After all, he certainly has a lot to contend with, but does it look like anything gets him down? No, he's just happy to work with what he has. So when you're feeling blue, count all your blessings and think to yourself, what would Chris P. Bacon do?
