Grandson, Kaler turns two today, and I thought a guy ought to have a place to start saving his birthday cash. Another LJ posted a collection of piggy banks that looked good to me, so I borrowed the design and embellished it with a little pair of leather ears and tail. 9 inches long, 5.5 inches tall, oak with poly finish. I think he likes it!

Cute pig. When I was a small boy my dad had a large pig bank. When he came home from work he always gave me his change and told me to go feed the pig. I have fond memories of feeding those coins to the pig bank.
