i used to take it for walks on a leash...people would take a second look back and say "what is that???"
she ended up getting to clingy to my parents and didn't want anyone else around or he would chase them!
they ended up bringing her to a farm not too far away where they had alot of these kinds of pigs! i wonder how big he is now???
My step-dad has a pot-bellied pig named "Kevin Bacon." He's just like a dog...even grunts instead of barks when someone is at the front gate.

Critbunny,
I know exactly what you mean. We have so many Hawks around here and with those little 2 lbs puppies I'm so paranoid about them swooping down. I don't let them outside unless I'm with them.

Not all birds are, just ones with bad habits. Any toy with a bell on it, gets the bell removed and thrown in the bathtub of water, all ladders get disconnected, all newspaper gets shredded, all strings get cut, all courtesy of Lina the Cockatiel.

Maybe the hawk though the dane was dinner. Did he resembele Angelina Ballerina?

Yeah, losing a pet is tough. Especially when they are more like a member of the family than a pet. Our dog will be 7 this year. It will be so hard on us when she's gone.

One more bird post and I will try to hush . . Handfed birds are usually the most even-tempered birds and they relate to people better because they have grown up with them. Bird that are raised by their parents and with other birds tend to remain afraid of humans. Knowing a bird's history can be really important to your experience.

I'm not sure what age of person the pet will be for but birds can bite (Damage varies by intent, bill type, and bird size). My tiel was a handfed chick and she loves people. She can't really bite but she can get really loud. The keets were raised by their parents so they do not interact with humans at all. They sing, play, and keep each other company. The parrot is bonded to me only and has a mean streak. He can bite and do damage to humans, rugs, wood baseboards, etc. (I bought him as a third owner so I'm not sure that his early life history is very good. He needed disipline somewhere down the line that he did not get and training too. We tend to go a few rounds every now and then until he decides to listen to Mama.)
