I have a string in the format "{Dog=1, Cat=2, Mouse=3}".

I'm having difficulty in parsing out the values into a dictionary<string, int>. The desired result should mean each entry is the dictionary looks like:

"Dog" , 1
"Cat", 2
"Mouse", 3

Does anybody have an an elegant method of doing this? i.e. using LINQ. I'm currently using C# .NET 4.

Many thanks
