Have you ever read George Orwell's Animal Farm? Great book. Seriously creepy, but very interesting. Basically the pigs get all the farm animals to drive the farmer away and take over the farm themselves. Eventually, at the end of the book, the pigs start walking upright and live in the house and drink whiskey like the farmer had done before them. The original goal had been to create a utopia where all animals are equal and do their part- but the pigs are corrupt and therefore their revolution falls to pieces and the rest of the farm animals are right back to where they started, if not worse.
Anways, its a good book. At the heart of it, it really isn't about farm animals at all, but thats another discussion by someone much more versed in political satire than I. But it still has a good story. Take good care of your animals or they might revolt and drive you out of the house, breed evil dogs, kill your horse, and then start drinking your whiskey.
