Cats and dogs are cool, but what about pigs? Better yet, what about a 670-pound pig who thinks she's a dog?

Meet Esther, a Canadian pig whose owners bought her under the impression that she was a micro-pig (aka teacup pig) who would grow to 70 to 150 pounds max. She quickly made her true identity known, but they loved her just the same and embraced as a member of the family — seriously, you won't believe the life this pig lives. 

Warning: You'll never want to eat bacon again after reading this. 

As a piglet, Esther was put up for adoption and advertised as a micro-pig.

Esther only weighed four pounds when her dads Steve and Derek adopted her.


Now she has her own website and is very connected in the world of social media. According to her Facebook page, her dads use Esther as a way to show people their love for animals and to prove how smart and amazing pigs are.

Even though she quickly passed her alleged 70-pound maximum weight, her dads refused to give her up.

She's been an official member of the family since they adopted her back in 2012.

But Esther's not an only-pet! Here she is with one of her siblings, Shelby.


She's treated more like a dog than farm animal. There's no "eat outside" nonsense for the wonder pig.

Esther's dads are the main men in her life, but she's crushing hard on Ben and Jerry.

And probably whoever baked these pies.

With all that ice cream, pie, and food in general, you better believe Esther is the queen of sleeping off her food comas.

But what's really wonderful about Esther is how she inspired her dads to open a sanctuary for abandoned animals called Happily Ever Esther.
