Thanks! She is a big ham! and surprisingly photogenic considering she has the energy of a 8 year old child cracked out on mountain dew.

 

I would love to have a silver shepherd, one of my best friends has one that is beautiful but boy does it have a lot of hair! I cant imagine trying to maintain all that fur, it takes me 2 hours to brush all three of our dogs every couple of days!

 

130 lbs is a lot of dog, the puppies parents linger around 110-120 whenever we take them to the vet. I cant imagine owning something even bigger than that!

I could not agree with you more! And I am not just saying that because we have 3 of them haha. In all honesty I have yet to find a more intelligent, loving and loyal breed.

Here's 3 of my smoking buddies...obviously they're not much help until it's time to pull the meat. 

Ginni (sleeping), Mocha (Choc. Lab) and Blondi.

They also help me scare the fish away...

They are a little more lively when down at our cabin.

Max the hog.

..... here, Maxy, Maxy, Maxy..... I got a nice warm WSM for you to cuddle up in....... th_wsmsmile0ly.gif

 

LOL.... nice looking herd you got there Stealth!

You wouldn't want to eat max...he's 15 y/o and probably tough as hell.  th_dunno-1[1].gif

Dang stealth you have quite a group of friends! I have always wanted a pet pig, how does max do with the dogs?

post #31 of 48

They usually try for the title at least once...but they (the dogs) seem to be fast learners. ;-)

 

Seriously though, they all get along with Max fine, they just have to learn to not get in his personal space.

post #32 of 48

haha, sometimes you gotta learn the hard way right?

 

In all seriousness though I know next to nothing about pigs other than the fact I like to eat them, any pointers on owning one as a pet or words of wisdom? we have just shy of 3 acres of space and here in southern California  that is the equivalent to like 1000 acres elsewhere. I dont think space is an issue really just housing the thing.... All 3 of our dogs are really social and I cant see them really disliking a pig but then again I cant say I could see a pig wanting to immediately befriend 3 German shepherds either....

post #33 of 48

If you get it as a piglet, it would grow up with the dogs and likely be fine.  We kennel dogs quite often and Max has only had issues with one dog, a husky that decided he was gonna eat Max.  We decided to keep max in the garage while we boarded the husky.  

 

I don't wanna jack this thread too much...so, check out posts 15 and 19 of  this thread for some additional info. :-) http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/forum/thread/93740/just-looking-not-for-eating

Like I said in my last post, we board dogs for friends and family, here's a few of them we've watched over the years.

 

A super sweet Golden Retriever. (laying down, that's our dog Blondi sitting)

The Husky that wanted to eat Max. (and blondi)

My dad's dog Remo.  We had some neighbors move out and leave behind their dog.  Once the animal control came and took him, my dad went to the pound and saved him from death row.

Our 3 dogs + 2 we board on a weekly basis, Mulchay and Dulcay (I don't know how to spell their names)

Redneck, that dam dog will never leave you alone.  I had a Golden once.  I couldn't go to the grill or smoker without a tennis ball hitting me in the butt.  Dam dog would bend her head down and throw the ball at me.  I had to throw the ball for her to fetch until one or both of us got wore out.  Sure do miss her!

 

Good luck and good smoking.

That Husky is SMART !

 

Knows "Pork Fat Rules"!

 

He refuses to make friends with his Dinner.

 

Great bunch of buddies!

LOL---That's great---Often makes me wonder if they do that kind of thing just to be funny!

That picture of Charlie reminds me of my "Shadow" who we lost a few years ago.   Great buddy!
