This hour: a beloved pig and a meditation on dogs.

Jerome the Pig
by Bob Garfield (All Things Considered, 1988)
In Texas, in the late 80s, there lived a pig. And not just any pig. This pig became somewhat of a celebrity, for a variety of reasons we shall not divulge. Way before the phrase "driveway moment" had been coined, this story defined one.

When the Dog Was Just the Dog
by Lea Redfern and Russell Stapleton (Radio Eye, ABC, 2004)

This episode of Re:sound was produced by Roman Mars.
