Wild Hogs, we call them piney woods rooters here in South Florida.
My late father was a member on a large hunting lease (back in the days when a working man could afford to be on a lease) What he would do about the hogs that they wanted to hunt was this, he would set traps and catch them, usually sows and pigs, then he would "cut" the male pigs, thus making them "barrows" after he cut their you know whats off he would take his knife and cut off part of their tails and square the tips of their ears off. That way if you were in a stand and saw a hog you could tell it was a barrow and would be good meat. Dad like to tell that when he was through with them and he released them as they ran off they would grunt RUINT, RUINT, RUINT!!!

I have a chatahula curr/beagle her name is sassy

she lives here in my house with me....she is very very very shy and she has very low self esteem...she just kind of obsequesly creeps around...she is very greatfull and she is AWESOME with grand son drags her around by the ears and she would never dream of snapping at him...i almost wish she least try to protect herself

I Love her very much and provide a nice life for her with high quality food and pure water...she never leaves the sweet and gwntal as she is ...if a coon or a posom hapens to be unfortunate enough to walk across the property they might as well say their prayers cause sassy will grab them by the throte and that is the end of them

i think that low self asteem problem comes from her beagle part....but i wonder

A while back someone was talking about good dogs for 'around the place with kids and all' and I mentioned Catahoula Curr dogs. They were developed for hunting wild hogs but turned out to be good with cattle and all around good farm dogs. It is a recognized breed now and you can get papers on them.

Hi Phillis,
Just happend to run across your post. And noticed your request for catahoula curr pix. Here is a link to my photo page. it has a few pics of my puppys the ones named Dixie and Jazzy are catahoula pups. the white one is more rare,the white ones have the double murrel gene. and are prone have vision or hearing problem. none so far w/ dixie. The other one is from the same litter. (Jazzy) she has the blue eyes aka.(glass eyes) she has the patteren known as " blue leopard" a much more common type of catahoula. LINK TO PICS> Also do a search on you'll get lots of hits. Search for Catahoula Leopard Dogs. to get better results. look for abney, it is an informative site on the breed. good luck, have a nice day. K.D. Graham
