Pig—the name of this Akita mutt—is not one of those ridiculous photoshops of animals with short necks. She was born like this in the woods northeast of Atlanta. Nobody gave a damn for her life except her owner, Kim Dillenbeck: "The lady who found her, the vet told her to have her put down."
The ingredients label for a can of Hormel's SPAM with bacon — that non-perishable staple of survival kits the world over — lists "pork," "ham" and "bacon." Separately. In that order.
Pigs. Pork. Bacon. Ham. Belly. Shoulder. Chops. Sausages. Iberian. Serrano. I don't care I love it all. And the only way to properly honor my love for pork is to buy Speakal's ridculous pig-shaped speaker where you change the volume by pressings its ears.
