Complete a battleground and the tabard is yours. Complete and win a battleground and you get a chance of getting the little guy. On Pigletoos first try he not only got the pet and tabard, but finished his PvP daily. I have no such luck as I still haven't gotten my pet.
The only other thing that has peaked my interest lately: FLYING CARPET.
It's about time they give us tailors a profession specific mount. Now I just hope they will have a new set to make.
