Um.. no... I don't know where that was eluded too but the answer is no. However, all breeds will evolve and must adapt. They both do this on their own and with our help.

Again, why can you not fathom a middle ground? A dog in your theorem is either a hunting dog or fee fee the french poodle atop a satin pillow.

ETA, as for the horses, (which I only have comedy on) enjoy.

You totally do, they're like crack. Just steer clear when he gets moving with it, he'll take out your knees. LOL

I worry about that. He's dangerous enough on his own, or chasing the weebling wobbler around the yard.

BWUAHAHAHAAA!!!! Hardly, lol. We walk really, REALLY fast, about four and a half mph. And I live in yoga pants Imagining someone trying to do that with their pants hanging off their ass is pretty funny. Guess they wouldn't be walking a real APBT

Sally LOVES her egg!! She goes crazy for it. She's a big Jolly Ball fan too but she tears those up quickly.

If you read my posts, the number of dogs under my name account for all my personal dogs, each puppy from each litter, and every single rescue fog I took in, including dogs I picked up on the side of the road. But regardless of that list, or the fact that I WORKED at that same clinic for years as a vet tech, there's no way in hell I'll accept part of the blame. I did nothing wrong. Why should I be partly to blame, and why on earth is it ok for me to be viewed as "guilty until proven innocent"???

ETA: or did I completely misunderstand your post? That happens when I'm trying to type and bring used as a jungle gym by three rowdy children.
Haha no no, I quoted your post because it was relevent, my use of 'YOU' was a general public 'YOU' and not actually...you. Alright, it's late..

I agree totally that most pit bull type dog owners are not "upstanding citizens".
Yeah...partially this. "Wannabe gangsters". And I'll correct myself..they aren't walking the dog so much as going to hangout in a group, using the dog for protection or a status symbol or something. Sorry. Hey I said 9/10..not all . There are some decent people. Keep in mind I work in pet retail at a farm store right outside a big city. I get the questions..I talk to them...I show them muzzles when Killer or MaryJane starts to 'act out'..usually the stereotype is pretty right on. Oh and for the record, some of them seem to be switching over to the oddball mastiffs now...corsos and filas and whatnot.

Sorry that gave me a good laugh! I've been out with people hunting...not doing much myself except traipsing around the woods and camping..but the people I knew were pretty fair to the dogs and the hog as best they could.
They aren't pests like a deer just eating your garden...they are pests that maul horses (a girl where I boarded had one pop out and run into her horse), people, dogs, and so forth. They can totally ruin their habitat and uproot everything. Not to mention I believe they are an invasive species..they are just feral pigs?

Hogs are definitely nasty creatures. They destroy the land, they're super-aggressive, and they reproduce like horny rabbits.

I'll never forget the fear I felt the day we stumbled onto a litter of hidden piglets. We all froze, as the bay dogs had gone ahead and were on the trail of something, but we knew that the sow had to be close by. Sure enough, the catch dogs started going nuts just as soon as a 150 lb pissed off mother hog came barreling out of the trees. Sadly, those cute little piggies were brought to homes and fattened for couchon de lait (they were MEAN little buggers, too!).

Feral hogs don't run very far before turning to fight.

i'm going to disagree. hunting anything that can kill you back is very much the equivalent of combat (more so for the dog). having been in combat, i can assure you that VERY few activities even come close to being as stimulating.

The act of seeking the kill can be simulated through tracking. The kill cannot but I am convinced you can emulate and satisfy your dogs without hunting.
