As I was walking home from the bisto this evening, a couple of women were walking a leashed pig into the local Petco store.
A tiny but courageous or foolhardy dog wanted to investigate, but was held in check by the person at the other end of its tether. One of the employees initially seemed distressed, but was in fact just greatly moved to see a pig.
I had some desire to enter and pet the pig, but I figured that the owners — and perhaps also the pig — got too much of that as it were.
 Were my own dog still around, and confronted with a pig, then his reäction to it, as to so much, would have been the canine equivalent of
