THIS LITTLE PIGGY: In September, The Indy asked readers to submit photos of their animals for our Pet Photo Contest. We received so many fabulous pictures that it was very difficult to select just one. However, we did finally choose, and the winner is … Lulu (pictured), a teacup pig belonging to Scooter and Jocelyn Jayne of Carpinteria. The one-year-old swine — nicknamed Miss Piggy — gets royal treatment, including cozy beds and a gourmet menu. One of her favorite dishes is honey-crusted halibut tacos that include fresh-cut corn, orange-juice-soaked cabbage, pico de gallo, avocado, Greek yogurt, and rice on a homemade corn tortilla. Congratulations, Lulu!
