Why do we love dogs and eat pigs?

My master thesis tries to show the double standards we are living with at the moment. It’s totally normal to be an animal lover, to have a dog and eat meat. To explain why those differences exist is often not so easy. People tend to repeat the same false clichés, e.g. that pigs are dirtier than dogs.
