    The author...and her husband rescued a runt covered with black and white spots and named him after Christopher Hogwood...Montgomery learns a good deal from Hogwood about celebrating the evanescent pleasures of living. May well spark a stampede in porcine acquisitions, not as consumables, but as companions.
