The Piglet

Yoshi has found the piglet, and Yoshi has tasted the piglet. Guessing the piglet is short lived, I started my day by propping piglet up on my bedcovers and sketching "The Piglet" into my hand•book. It was an exercise in pen and ink, a good way to start the day thinking about stuffed pigs. (?) This one is soft, cuddly and pink, and its little furry, fabric tail has almost been chewed off by Yoshi the Boxer dog who thinks he is still a teeny weeny puppy.
