   Leave a bone for Pig

Pug, Pugster, Fat B0y(gets this one a lot), fluff butt, Hush Pig, pupcakes and P.

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-mutt-dog rescue

December 10th 1999

Me, me holding him, rides, walks, fetching, swimming, eating, chasing squirrels, barking and "herding" cows.

Nail clipping, STORMS, firecrackers, baths(but loves to swim??), squirrels, fire, cigarettes, big dogs, being away from me.

Favorite Toy:
Yellow glow ball, anything floppy and squeaky, my arm, any small dog that will play with him.

Favorite Food:
Meat...not big on veggies unless they taste like meat. Does not like cheap dog food.

Favorite Walk:
The Main St. of our town. Loves all the other dog smells.

Best Tricks:
"Tell mama", hogging the whole bed, looking like someone shot his best friend when I start to leave him for work.

Arrival Story:
My brother in law found him and his sisters dumped in the middle of a gravel road. It was extremely cold that night. He weighed 1lb 4 ozs and his sisters were 5 lbs each. I had three dogs then, but I could not give him up. He was so sick I thought he was going to die anyway, but thank God he did not. I thought he would stay small but he soon proved me wrong. I love him way too much. It is hard to think of life without him.

My other dogs have all gone over the bridge in the last few years and Pig has been my love. I got him a friend, Osie, last October. She cleans his face. Pig loves kitties, little dogs, babies/kids and I don't mean for dinner :) He is not the best trained dog I have ever had but he is just soo special to me and all he meets. People have told me that they tried not to like him but they could not ^. .^ help themselves._________ ^ The Pig is not too fond of men...much to his mommy's dismay. Oh well I must find a cattle dog savy man, huh.

Forums Motto:
Go, fetch, chase, play, go.

Hey, It's me Pig. I just wanted to say that I'm still here and life is still good for me. I am still my mom's number one even though I am one of 7 now. LOL Two were inherited from my grandma and they other four were strays that she aquired.


Howdy all!!

Wow I can not believe it has been 8 months since I got sick. I spent 14 wks on liver support meds and antibodics. I lost a total of 10 lbs. Okay so I needed to loose the weight, but the sickness was awful. I am still slim and trim. Mom says she needs to loose a few now. ;) Hope everyone is doing well. Until next time...paws up...PIG


My 8th Birthday.....

Today is my 8th birthday. It will be spent with my Mom at the Vet hospital trying to make me better. You see the weekend of Thanksgiving I got into the garbarge and also got into deer guts out in the pasture. I had pancreatitis and was treated for that. Well I just did not want to eat even after I was feeling better. Friday the 7th mom noticed my eyes were yellow. She got very scared because that could mean liver failure. I went to the hospital that evening(my vet was out of town). They think I need my gallbaldder removed!! They said I was not in liver failure, but was having liver trouble. Because of money and the fact I was stable, they told mom to bring me back during regular hours on Monday[my birthday :( ] for an ultrasound. They will beside if and when I need surgery today. I am scared and my mom is out of her mine with worry. Not only does she love me with everything she has, she is low on money. See mom just bought us a place to live and then I had to go be crazy and eat stuff that I am not supposed to. The surgery will be $1200.00 to $1500.00 and that really scares my mom. She said she has an extra kidney if anyone needs to buy one!!!! I will let you know how things turn out. Keep your paws crossed for me.....Pig
