Remember when your dog had to go live on a farm upstate? It was a traumatic time. Poor little Honey Boo Boo had to give up her pet pig. So why did the “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” star have to part ways with the little pink porker?
Little Honey Boo Boo had a little pig named Glitzy. Sounds like the beginning of a children’s story, huh? Although this one doesn’t have a very happy ending. Apparently Honey Boo Boo and her siblings didn’t care for Glitzy the way that mom had instructed so the pig had to go.
“Right now, I think we’ve got enough pets for every boy in China,” reasoned mom, June, who was continually tired of getting up early in the morning to tend to take care of the pig.
“What’s best for Glitzy is that he go back to the breeder and find a home who can devote the time to him,” June said.
“I don’t want him to go,” Honey Boo Boo screamed before she started to cry. “Glitzy was going to be my good luck charm. He loves me!”
But alas, the pig had to go. But fear not he was not turned to bacon or chops.
Glitzy has returned to his Georgia-based breeder, Posh Pigs.
“Glitzy’s daily routine is pretty much the same as it was before he left,” says the company’s website. “He is fed breakfast at 7 a.m. and dinner at 7 p.m. He gets a visitor every morning … my chihuahua goes in with me to feed and joins them for breakfast!”
But just in case you’ve been looking for your own pig, Posh Pigs is looking to place Glitzy in a new “forever home.” Proceeds from his sale going to animal rescue efforts. Well, maybe this pig tale did have a happy ending after all.
