Piggy

The photo I just posted of Georgie with his head in a saucepan reminds me of the comment a Taiwanese acquaintance of mine made about Georgie when he was a puppy.

Carrie had some kind of hairy toy dog, suitable for a small apartment in Taipei and also handy for mopping floors, so the first time I saw Carrie after Georgie arrived, I proudly showed her a photo of him. Of course, I thought he was the most handsome and adorable puppy ever born, so I was startled when Carrie started to laugh, saying (or squealing, depending on your point of view), "He look just like piggy!"

The next time I was in a restaurant in China (that night, actually), I was dismayed to see a waiter walk by with a roast suckling pig on it that looked awfully familiar...

And now you know why I've never really had the urge to visit China...
(although I would love to have had tons of sewing material from Hong Kong, China, Taipei ...)
