Porky Photobomber

 Meet Pumba – micro-pig, friend, and limelight thief. Pumba belongs to professional rugby player Callum, 24, and personal assistant Abbie, 29.

They decided to kindly invite their pet pig to the wedding and have him appear in some of their photos from the big day. But Pumba decided that wasn’t enough. He photobombed every candid wedding photo he could manage.

The couple only found out that their pig was a master at photobombing when they looked at the pictures and spied him in every one.

“We couldn’t not invite Pumba to our wedding day, he’s part of the family,” said Abbie. “Pumba spent the day running around, grazing and making friends with the children. We’re used to him but everyone else is shocked or fascinated. But people can also be wary, yet he’s so friendly and wags his tail. We had the wedding in a field, all outdoors in summer so it was perfect for him. The dogs were there too, and my three horses, but Pumba definitely became the star of the show – it wasn’t the intention for him to be in so many photos. It’s hilarious looking back on them as he’s photobombed them all.”

Abbie and Callum adopted Pumba after spotting a micro pig breeder online. The pig has the potential to grow to eight stone by the age of five, and will live outside as he grows larger.

For now, he’s house-trained and loves to spend time indoors with his owners and their two dalmatians, Brody and Beau. “Pumba is so sassy – the sass is unreal,” says Abbie. “Food is everything to him, and he always wants to be with us, coming on walks. He hates being on his own, he’s just like a dog only much smarter. He loves the dogs – he gets in their bed and sits on them, he thinks he’s one of them. He’s a year old now and could grow a little more – but I never thought I’d love a pig this much.”
