Is it really true? If one googles further, there seem to be some bad affect of breeding such puppies to obtain such a size.
Anyway, today I spotted a juicier news in MSN News (excerpt take from link):
Adorable ‘teacup pigs’ are latest hit with Brits
In England, they’re porking over up to $1,100 each for 14-inch-tall oinkers
These little piggies went to market — and became so popular that Brits such as “Harry Potter” actor Rupert Grint are porking over up to $1,100 apiece for adorable “teacup pigs” that grow to just 14 inches tall. “They make fantastic pets,” said breeder Jane Croft.
Teacup for two Tiny pigs the size of teacups, as this photo demonstrates, are the latest pet craze sweeping Great Britain. These little piggies are named Simon (left) and Cheryl.
"They make fantastic pets," says breeder Jane Croft of her micro pigs. "They’re highly intelligent and just love to be loved. They give so much back to you.”
Micro pigs have become so popular in England that they are almost impossible to get hold of. They are going for as much as $1,1000 a piece.
At birth, micro pigs are smaller than kittens, weighing about 9 oz. Micro pigs like these were bred by mixing potbellied pigs with the Tamworth, Kune Kune and Gloucester Old Spot breeds. Story Adorable ‘teacup pigs’ are latest hit with Brits
Imagine these teacup piggies reaching the shores of Malaysia (I know it will not happen, but I said imagine!)
These 1,100 pounds (RM 6000) piggies might end up looking like this:
Imagine the stalls banner saying "Harry Potter's friend's Bah Kut Teh" or
"Bak Kut Teh from RM6k little piggy" or "Imported UK miniature roast piglet" (small portion but pay in pounds!). Hah!
Well, my tagline would be like this:
"Teacup Piggies anyone? You can have a plate of roast mini-piglet in a teacup (the teacup is complimentary gift) Any takers? " :p
