If you speak English, here is the story by Janaina Tokitaka:

Many years ago a pig was born with raspberry scent.
Everyone delighted at the natural perfume of red fruit that his pink skin exhaled.
Now in the same kingdom there was princess who dreamt of owning a pet pig.
But her parents, the King and the Queen, demanded that the animal be clean and odoriferous in order not to muck the white halls of the palace.
The raspberry pig heard that rumor and started marching to said palace.
Because the position was his for sure.
It's just that the castle was far, it hadn't rained in a while and the pig walked and walked and gathered the dust from the roads and...
got very stinky feet.
The pig arrived at the castle self-proclaiming the RASPBERRY PIG.
The princess ran to hug her new pet, but...
...the beast stank exactly like any normal pig.
The king and the queen were already preparing the expulsion from the royal palace of that dirty, deceitful animal...
...but the princess, crying, said she could prove that was a raspberry pig.
She gave him a bubble bath and applied moisturizer to his feet and baby powder behind his ears.
After that, the Queen snorted and had to agree that the pig was rasperry all right.
And every day the princess gave the little pig a bubble bath with sulfate-free shampoo and so they remained together and aromatic forever.
After all, that was the raspberry pig. Or not?
