It’s Piglet’s Service Dog Sunday! Nala is a trained service dog. She is a 2 year old golden retriever. Her handler got her as an 8 weeks old puppy specifically to be her service dog. She began service dog training with Nala right away. Nala does medical response tasks, as well as crowd control. Nala is very in tune with her handler and enjoys just about anything they do together. Her favorite place to “go to work” is Walt Disney World because she loves to go on the rides and visit with special characters. You can learn more about Nala, service dogs, and Nala’s adventures at Disney World by following @helperdognala💕💕 . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#servicedog#disneyworld#autism#autismawareness#goldenretriever#specialneeds

It looks like a Peaceful Pink Piglity Goodnight picture but in really it is a reminder that our Piglet Mindset T-shirt Fundraiser will end on Wednesday night. That leaves only four days for you to order your very own shirt or sweatshirt. We won’t have another t-shirt fundraiser until the end of November before the December holiday season. We always have stickers and other small Piglet Merch available. Update on the fundraising- We sold 330 shirts and raised $4705 in the first of the two current sales. This time around so far we have sold 98 shirts and raised over $1000. This is a record for our t-shirt fundraising campaigns. All profits will be donated to special needs dog rescues and other related organizations. Last week I send donations to @kellerscause@wild_at_heart_foundation@pawsaversrescue@deafdogsrock@loveyloaves@t_perfectimperfections@littlepinkshelterand Colbert Veterinary Rescue Services. A small portion of the profits will be used for our Piglet Mindset Educational Outreach Program. Thanks for all the support!

It’s Piglet’s Special Needs Saturday! Today we are featuring the one and only himself, Piglet, the deaf blind pink puppy. Can a deaf blind dog really have a good quality of life? For all those doubters, this one’s for you. There’s really nothing happier than this tiny pink deaf blind dog who was rescued from a hoarding situation in Georgia. His rescuers couldn’t have been more devoted. They made sure he ended up in just the right place. Looking back we know it was a setup, but we forgive our rescue friends in Georgia bc we couldn’t love our pink puppy more. Piglet has his very special friends at the vet hospital. Everyone knows Monica, Emily, Jessica, and Gina. But Mallory gets much less air time. This morning I had an appointment over at the vet hospital so Piggy came along. Piglet’s nose knows who’s there. When Monica isn’t there he is much more available to his other friends. This is the greeting he gave to Mallory. His tail was wagging so fast it was like a blur. Happy is an understatement. We hope all of Piggy’s friends achieve the same happy as Piggy this weekend. And we hope everyone will consider a special needs pet the next time you adopt.💕💕💕 . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#speciallyabled#qualityoflife#goodlife#loveisblind#blinddogsseewiththeirhearts#senseorlove#deafdogshearwiththeirhearts#specialk9games#bebrave#pigletmindset#rescuedogsofinstagram#dogsofinstagram#blinddog#deafdog

He’s even cute from behind! The tiny pink one plays very rough. I cant get enough of his face when I’m playing with him. But tonight I got to watch this little scene from behind. No need for an explanation. It’s just plain and simply adorable. The best part could be the last 2 seconds when thirst overcomes him and Piglet ends the game abruptly. It’s hard to imagine how a deaf and blind dog can be such a cute little character. But here he is- fully engaged in his precious little life. I love him to pieces. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#ilovemydog#cutenessoverload#playfulpuppy#dogfeatures#rescuedogsofinstagram#blinddogsofinstagram#deafdogsofinstagram#cutedogsofinstagram#deafblind#senseofhumor#loveisblind#thirsty

Throwback Thursday to a young Piglet with his starving sister Zoey. I’ve watched this video too many times to count. I can’t get over how precious the tiny pink boy is as he inches up to be next to Zoey after being told to sit. Our beach will be opening up to dogs really soon. The dogs love the beach as much as I do.💕💕 . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#throwbackthursday#beachdogs#ilovemydog#dogwalks#dogtreats#weratedogs#cutenessoverload#petinsider#thedogagency#tdafam

When Piggy was a tiny baby I wondered if he would learn his way in and out of the vet hospital. The answer is that he walks in and out with great confidence to the tune of grumbling bc another dog has been there earlier. I give him credit- For such a tiny little guy who can’t hear or see, Piglet suffers no lack of confidence. He is a feisty little guy determined to live his life to the fullest. He’s also as cute as can be while he’s doing feisty. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#confidence#determination#positiveattitude#growthmindset#pigletmindset#deafdogsofinstagram#blinddogsofinstagram#rescuedogsofinstagram#tdafam#thedogagency#petinsider#specialneedsdog

Piglet is (or thinks he is) the star of the Piglet Show. But members of the supposed supporting cast are stars in their own right. Little Annie is one of the most shy dogs I have ever met. She has always been the sweetest passive dog in our group. She rarely gets the spotlight bc she hangs in the wings waiting to see what’s going to happen. It’s surprising I got the short video of her bc she usually walks away as soon as a camera points at her. But, lucky for everyone, here she is in full adorable form- Our precious Annabee, smiling and waving her cute little paws at me. Annie was rescued from a kill shelter in Kern County CA by @petmatchmakercaShe was a tiny very ill puppy. I flew to CA to pick her up when she was about 3 1/2 months old. She has always been a perfect little dog and she LOVES Dean and Susie. We hope everyone has had a happy hump day. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#cutenessoverload#dogpack#shydog#camerashydog#dogsofinstagram#dailydog#dogfeatures#dogpack#buzzfeedanimals#thedodo#tdafam#petinsider

Wishing all of Piggy’s friends a Peaceful Pink Piglity Goodnight with a video of me NOT waking Piglet up to go out to do his pee before going up to bed. Piglet has been wrapped in a blanket for quite a while, first on his dad’s lap and now on mine. Piggy is a deep sleeper because he is deaf and blind so moving him from lap to lap works well once he’s decided it’s time to settle down for the night. But his food motivation will kick in shortly as he will be heading outside to pee. Then all the dogs will swarm for the bedtime headcount cookies. We highly recommend a before bed tally even if you have only one dog, just to be sure everyone is safe inside before all the lights are turned off. You’d be surprised at some of the stories I’ve heard of dogs being left in cars, outside, in the garage... We have a lot of dogs so I do a head count before bed, when I leave the house, and when I return, as well as at key points during the day. It gives me peace of mind. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#goodnight#safetyfirst#dogpack#headcount#peaceofmind

Pink Monologue💕 For those who ask if he barks, here is your answer. This is most likely a protest about something the tiny pink boy wants and isn’t getting. It could be that he wants food, someone to play with him, to be held, or to go outside. I generally have an idea of what he’s looking for. He’s a relatively predictable boy. How many make it to the end without understanding why some family members don’t think Piglet is cute all the time. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#barkingdog#bark#barked#dailydog#dogsofbark#dogist#deafdogsofinstagram#blinddogsofinstagram#deafblind#obnoxious#cuteanyway#alwayscute

Communicating with a deaf blind dog is relatively easy with touch and tap signals. But what happens if the dog is too far away to touch him? He can use his nose to find us, but how does he know we are calling him? Piglet is never too far from us so when we want him, we walk over to him. But, it surely would be nice for him to come over to us when we “call him”. I’ve heard of other deaf blind dogs that come when their people blow towards them. Piglet has never responded to this, until a few weeks ago. He was playing with the other dogs and I started blowing in his direction. He noticed and something clicked. He came towards me and of course I made a big fuss over him. Since then he’s been more and more responsive to my calling him by blowing to him. Practically, this is not terribly important. But it is very good for Piglet to have a growing repertoire of communication skills. Plus, he is extremely adorable to watch which you will notice in this little video. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#pigletmindset #dogtraining#deafblind#deafdog#blinddog#specialk9games#communication#dogswithdisabilities#disableddog#dogsofinstagram#specialneedspets#weratedogs#daddyofdogs#rescuedog

The picture of patience for some Monday morning motivation. Zoey and Evie understand that Piglet is just a little bit different. They aren’t phased in the least by him circling around Zoey which he commonly does at night when he’s tired and hoping for one last cookie before we go to bed. Zoey could easily snip at him to get him to stop but she lets Piglet be Piglet. It’s not that the other dogs don’t let him know when he’s out of line, but they are surprisingly gentle and flexible with Piglet when they are playing, taking walks, doing tricks, and resting together. It’s nice to see our dog group naturally practicing acceptance, tolerance, inclusion, and kindness with Piglet, the deaf blind pink puppy. Have a great Start to your week! . .

“Seeing a dog tends to make people smile and from that we might infer that just seeing a dog makes most people feel a bit happier.” -Stanley Coren This about sums up our day in NYC yesterday. From the moment I got out of my car with Piglet, we were stopped by people with big smiles on their faces asking lots of questions about Piglet. Some took pictures and everyone took a Piggy business card. They assured us that they would be following his Instagram and Facebook pages. I got a double dose of the tiny pink Smile Maker. When I look at Piglet I literally melt, and can’t help but smile. Adding to that happy feeling, meeting and watching others respond to getting a glimpse of Piglet in his stroller, when he’s strutting down the sidewalk, or when he’s being carried along all wrapped in his blankie, Piglet becomes a smile making force like no other! Thanks to @path88productionsfor the pic, and @oxdadfor organizing the #wheelsonwallstreetfundraiser gathering for special needs dogs. @wagawarewill be donating all profits from sales of their wagaware glow in the dark charms over the next two weeks to @loveyloavesspecial needs dog rescue.

It was quite a Special Needs Saturday for Piglet and many other special needs dogs. Piglet traveled to NYC to attend his second Wheels on Wall Street Fundraiser for @loveyloaves. Deaf dogs, blind dogs, deafblind dogs, wheel chair dogs, tripod dogs... They were all there celebrating their beautiful lives with their devoted families. The dogs ran around together while their people compared experiences, asked questions, and connected over their special dogs. We met quite a few of Piglet’s friends which is always a lot of fun. Everyone who meets Piggy in person is surprised at how how tiny he is. As always, I worried about how Piglet would feel at the event bc there were so many dogs. But, in true Piglet fashion, he rose to the occasion and had a really nice afternoon. When we left, he took a nice walk around the South Street Seaport before we got into the car to go home. As expected, Piggy was very happy to be home. He played with his sisters and then settled down. Now he is completely zonked. The take home here after this very pleasant inspiring afternoon- We hope everyone will consider a special needs pet the next time you are looking to add to your family. I love my “normal” dogs, but caring for my dogs and birds who have profound disabilities has added a whole new dimension to my life. Working with and loving a dog like Piglet definitely takes extra energy, planning, improvisation, and compromise. But the rewards far outweigh the efforts that the Piglet project require. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#wheelsonwallstreet#speciallyabled#specialneedspets#specialneedsdogs#disableddogs#dogswithdisabilities#fundraiserevent#rescuedog

In response to the upset over “waking Piglet up for an Instagram video”, I’d like to make something really clear. Piglet is treated like a prince. He sleeps in our arms, on our laps, and snuggled against us most of every morning, afternoon, evening, and all night. I don’t get out of bed in the morning bc I don’t want to wake him up. And he sleeps uninterrupted to the point that we don’t get up from a chair without cradling him in a blanket when we walk around to get a glass of water or take care of something we can’t do when we are in a chair accommodating the Pink Prince. Piglet has a very active life. He’s tired at night and generally goes to sleep by 8 or 9. Sometimes in the evening I actually get him to go to sleep in his little bed or in his stroller, rather than on top of me. This way I can actually move about my house without being tied to a small sleeping dog! Late at night I have to wake Piglet up so he can go out to pee. Then he and the other dogs have their bedtime headcount cookies, and we go upstairs for the night where he sleeps in bed snuggled against me. I take a video of him bc he is adorable when I GENTLY wake him up, and I share that. That’s it. There’s nothing cruel about waking Piglet up when I have to go to sleep. Seriously. This dog lives the life most people can’t dream of. Our lives revolve around Piglet’s every breath. I’m waking him up whether or not I share it on Instagram. I think he’s absolutely precious when he tucks back in. It takes some gentle prodding. He is deaf and blind. He sleeps very deeply. Once he’s up, he enthusiastically moves into his bedtime routine. He is a happy, well cared for, loved little dog. . . . #pinkpigletpuppy#wakeup#goodnight#getalife#cutedog#sleepingdog#letsleepingdogslie#havetopee#cantpleaseeveryone#dogslife#ilovemydog#cutestdogs#pinkdog#haveasenseofhumor
