In the farm, there is a pig which I have the option of snuggling. Every time I do so, it just knocks me down and runs off into the woods. Is this all that ever happens? I just want to be friends.

It makes you creepy and weird. That's what it does. – Alex Apr 17 '13 at 15:57

It's a running joke among the community that snuggling the pig before every mission increases your luck, but in reality snuggling the pig doesn't do anything except make the pig like you (which has no in-game effect). It's just something extra the developers added into the game for a little fun.

The reason the pig keeps running from you though is because it hates you. You really should snuggle it more often so it doesn't think you're a heartless pig hating robot.

But he's already made it very clear that he loves pigs. – Fluttershy Apr 17 '13 at 14:36
@Fluttershy I just want him to love me back :( – user9983 Apr 17 '13 at 15:50
Heathen, do not spread lies of the hunter idol that is the pig. All true believers know that the porky one blesses hunters with many rubies, gems and plates. – Shykin Apr 23 '13 at 15:38

It can be considered to be practice for cooking meat. You have to wait through the tune and press A at just the right moment(when the exclamation point is above Poogie's head or right when the meat changes color) for success. Too late results in a mad pig or burnt meat.

To make the Pig loves you, you have to press "A" in the right time, when the "!" appears at the pig's head. Is just for fun. The pig will follow you after this.
