Wasn't this a movie called Doc Hollywood?
Also, quote of the day: "If I did not have rubber boots on and I wasn't holding onto that pig, I wouldn't be standing here. I'd be dead," he added. "The pig is a lifesaver.

With emotional commitment like that I can see why this guy is out on a romantic stroll with his pet pig instead of with a real live girl.
