DAILY DOSE OF CUTENESS (Victoria)
I was definitely in need of a cute animal fix this morning and the following certainly helped alleviate my Monday blues.
Meet Chris P. Bacon, a tiny piglet who was born without use of his hind legs who is able to walk again after being fitted with a wheelchair.
If this doesn’t warm your heart then there is something wrong with you!

So now we just need to see what The Sun’s version of “Glamorous Fashionistas” actually is…
AWFUL, BIGGY, JAUNTY, NIFTY & HOTSY (Aimee)
The title is more than just a few adjectives knocked together for effect – these are just some of the rejected names for Snow White’s dwarfs.
Hailed by some as the greatest movie ever made, Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs whether it’s your favourite classic or not, was a landmark achievement for Walt Disney.
Growing up with the movie, you may think you know every you need to know but think again. Here’s 25 things you might not have known about this classic.
