Sweet, a buddy had one in high school. It would ride in the back of his truck like a dog. His neighbors dogs ended up killing it[:@]

My sister has a pot bellied pig and it is gross. It screams when you try to pick it up. Smart little bugger though and does tricks, is house trained and probably smarter than most dogs. It lives to eat though and by the looks it will far exceed the 40 pound limit they said it would be when she bought it. Favorite treats are chips and any pizza crust you throw at it. They bought a large pizza, left it on the coffee table and went down to the store to rent a movie. When they cam back it was gone and part of the box was eaten too. Both my sister and her husband are large so that little piggy must feel like it is in HOG heaven.

Well you sure could feed it until it's about 30 lbs dressed and put it on the smoker.

That's a going joke. With LARGE parents like my sister and her husband that little piggy could turn into a BLT on a whim.

Wait until those male hormaones jump into gear...then you won't think it's so cute, lol.....
A friend of mine got a wild boar, we named it "Harry"...loved that pig until one day he tried humping the fence, just one look at that, I mean him and he had to die....and he did...he was gross, you throuw an apple or somethign down, he'd pee on it , then eat.....and that was nothing to him and the fence...........
