    We've had this guy for about 3 years now. He weighs ~60 pounds, sleeps in the house [has his own room] and has tons of personality. He's a rock star whenever we go anywhere in public!

    Here he is in one of his finer moments.

    My friend had one named Jake. The standard joke was Jake and eggs for breakfast.

    Friends used to raise animals they would eat but named them after food so the kids wouldn't get attached to them. One beef they named candy and it was really good.

    I could never eat a peto_O

    My grandmother played the "it's chicken" trick on me. It wasn't until a couple years after, that I found out I had eaten Thumper"

    Bacon and eggs for breakfast...my daily object lesson about the meanings of involvement vs. commitment.

    The Chicken is "involved", but the Pig is "committed"

    Love it! How much does she weigh?

    Mine gored my German Shepherd in the face so bad he almost lost his eye. Usually plays nice with the dogs, but doesn't share food :D

    She's about 150-170. She got a hold of our lab when he was 2 and just about tore his rib cage and guts out. It was feeding time and he got between her and her bowl. He'll never do that again...
