  •  I have a Catahoula Leopard Dog (6+ / 0-)

    which is, in part a boar hunting breed, but I've never hunted and neither has she. She doesn't like loud noises (I suspect whomever had her before us tried to take her hunting when she was too young).

    I do have a friend who goes hunting for them. We've been promised some bacon and ham in the future.

    •  Diesel is under the bed at the first sign of (6+ / 0-)

      shooting, fireworks or thunder, he wouldn't hunt, that's for sure!  But twice he has protected me from a charging german shepherd dog, and was setting up to do that again when we heard the squealing/grunting in the corn.  I guess herding dogs are supposed to protect the flocks from (wolves?) predators.  I am proud to be his sheeple!

      We were both glad to be back in the house!

      •  Oh, Freya will put herself between us (7+ / 0-)

        and danger, including another dog or animal. She's a herding breed to. Cattle herding and boar hunting are what the breed is 'intended' for. And she herds the other dogs and the cat, and sometimes the kids LOL.

        I'm glad you're all safe from the thing in the corn.
