Over here quite a few people won't give money to a beggar with a dog, because they assume he, or she, will only spend it on drink or drugs.

But they will often donate a tin of dog food.  Especially if the dog is a wistful looking little thing with only three legs, plus a cute colourful bandana tied around its neck.

One of our semi-locals scrounges end-of-roll scraps from the fabric shop and colour-co-ordinates with his his dog.  Good practical psychology.

In the years BC (Before Covid) I used to "have" my own beggars. A select few people that I would almost always make time to talk to, and to buy them something they needed. I'd meet them by the supermarket, and would ask if I could buy them anything. They never asked for much. Just small things, like a roll of bread, or a banana.

I'm afraid to ask and too lazy to look it up at the moment.

Frank would have to be stupid to make the same mistake repeatedly.  Mind you, he does keep coming back here ;-)

And for anyone who can't be bothered to look it up.  From the infamous Urban Dictionary, where all definitions should be taken with a considerable pinch of salt...

bushpig
Australian origin.
Derogatory label applied to a particularly unattractive woman. Typically used to describe a woman from a rural area who has an unattractive face, a mullet hairstyle, is of stocky build and dresses in flannelette clothing. Is not necessarily associated with homosexuality.

Most of the women at this years ute muster were bushpigs.
