Any given day, if you look the couch in our condo, you will find an assortment of humans, pigs and dogs. Today, Melissa is surrounded by Emmie the Yorkie in the front and Pumkin, Charlotte and Millie behind. There is truly nothing more calming and filled with joy than a couch filled with your best friends. When I hear people say that pigs are different than dogs and that they don't make very good companion animals, I'm often left wondering if they've ever actually spent time with a pig. Otherwise, I'm half certain they have some other motive like justifying what can be found on their plate. Because, it is much harder for most people to justify paying to have these amazing creatures harmed when you confront the fact that you would never pay for such things to happen to a dog. The goal should be to live consistent with our values rather than to try to find loopholes to let us justify abandoning our values when it is convenient to your palette addictions.
