Is it a Turtle or a Pig?

So, I finish tatting this little guy last night and I make the mistake of asking my husband.....what does this look like to you? His answer was a turtle. What the heck, who asked you anyway. Well, of course it's supposed to be a pig. So, my question is....does anyone else think it looks like a turtle? I was hoping to send it to a gal who is crazy about pigs but now I'm not sure. He turned out a lot smaller than I expected as you can see. I used Jane Eborall's (sp?) pattern but had to make some adjustments because I was having problems tatting an onion ring to my liking. I used the rose motif pattern for the body instead. Maybe that's why my husband thinks it looks like a turtle. So if anyone else thinks it looks like a turtle I'll have to go back to the drawing board and try those darn onion rings again. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

A turtle? What is he thinking!!

NO, It is a pig...or a really short, squatty, super fat lamb! No, not a lamb...the ear isn't long enough.

Yep, it's a pig!

Great job!

Well, it definitely is not a turtle and it is the most precious pig I own! Thank you so very much! :)
