The alliance between Hannibal and the incendiary pigs did not work out very well for the swine.

Her singing always cheered him up. Life seemed so much brighter when she stopped.

The US Army used to just put them down when they were done with dogs.  After Vietnam was over they just left the dogs behind to be eaten I guess.
