Tasmanian Pig Hound

Gimpleg Fagon I spoke with Frank Frangipani last night regarding acquiring a Tasmanian Pig Hound. He thinks that a Galloping Googol might work better in this area. He is going to try to get one for Dennis and I. He did inform me that these are almost but no quite as rare as the Tasmanian Pig Hound.

Thanks for the advice.

Here's a picture of our Tasmanian Pig Hound. You got to make sure you don't breed them too young or they will end up having a small litter like ours did.

That's a mighty fine lookin' Pig hound you got there, Larry. Good size, too for little pigs.

I think frank is right. The Googol will do a good job for ya and the're easier to find,too. A spayed female about two years old would be what I'd look for. Some of 'em develop a tast for red diesel fuel. I don't hurt 'em none, but can get expensive. My uncle, Tractor Byington had one that could drink 25 gallons a day.

It would save a lot if you could wean them over to corn silage runoff don't you think.
Later Bob

I think you're on to something there, Bob. Them Pig Hounds'd be a lot happier, too.

I sure am glad I checked with the xperts before I got me a Googol. I checked with another source Old McDonald referred me to a Mister Rudiment, he thinks a Maffick Musteline just might be the answer. Only problem is they live in the Himalaya Mountains and only mate when there is no snow. What to do, what to do. Next pigs I get are all going to have nose rings and that can't rout anywhere.

I might look into a Pygmalion Placoid but they eat scrapple, scrapple, scrapple, and it is too hard to find scrapple here in Arkansas and way to difficult to make.

We once had a rabbit that ran with the sheep. In fact, he thought he was a sheep by the way he acted. Not only that, he thought he was the BOSS sheep and druv them stupid sheep anywhere he felt like putt'n 'em.
Of course that was back in the days when moose were up north, bears stayed in the woods, coyotes were out west and even the fairies lived relatively normal lives.

Don't mean to meddle,just a mite troubled by alla this.

Your concerned Suthern Friend.

Yup, back then things made some sense. I'd sure like to have me a rabbit like that. He'd fit right in around here.
