Tom Daley's Pet Pig Is Too Adorable For Words (PHOTO)

They say a man's best friend is a dog, but we like to think that BFFs come in small -- and pink -- packages, too.

While most teens would be happy to come home to a cuddly puppy or a colorful beta fish, British teen Olympic diving star Tom Daley officially wins the gold for owning the Best Pet Ever -- a micro pig. Small, pink and covered in black spots, Daley's adorable new friend is "Aww" at first sight.

Scroll down to see photos.

Daley took to Twitter, in what may be the best selfie of the day, where he posted a grinning photo of himself holding the baby animal. Daley confirmed the pig's name, tweeting, "My pig is called Robby-Ray for those asking :D"

All we have to say is this: Tom, if you ever need a pet-sitter, you know who to call.

Would you prefer a pet pig over a cat or dog? Tell us in the comments below or tweet @HuffPostTeen!
