    In my younger single days, me and my two friends used to have the wildest boat parties on the lake, imagine 3 guys and 18 bikini clad hot girls on a big bowrider. Only had two rules. No more guys and no fat or ugly chicks. We would have had fun with that pig on our boat :), in fact would have kicked out one of the girls to have the pig on our party boat.

    Your boat, your rules, my boat, my rules. Don't like it? Well you know what to do!!

    Merry X-mas

    I got an infraction for the following post.

    So I apologize. Let me rephrase it:

    If your boat is at the dock with your pet sitting inside and some people walk by and say "Man... look at that pig", do you know which of the two they are talking about?

    pig·sty (p[​IMG]g[​IMG]st[​IMG][​IMG])n. pl. pig·sties 1. A shelter where a pig or pigs are kept.


    Is that better Woody?

    I didn't report that post so if you got an infraction some one else must have found it offensive. Apparently admin agreed.

    For the record, for as hurt and upset and attacked as Rick and I felt, as we love Ko-Jac, WE REPORTED NO ONE FOR ANYTHING! THAT IS THE TRUTH!

    Let me propose a test.

    Go to the Bayliner forum, register and start the same thread. Please report back the results.

    If your skin is that thin that people joking about your pig-pet upsets you so much, then you may want to re-consider whether or not this is a good place for you.

    If your skin is not that thin, then you are engaging in an activity known as baiting or trolling, both of which are frowned upon by the management.

    Mistercomputer,if you look at my original post,you would see that I was asking for advice and maybe someone had a big dog or a handicapped person that they needed to transport on and off beaches that would have the knowledge on how to do this,my mistake was saying that I had a pet potbellied pig and if you look at the videos,we do have a potbellied pig. There was not any baiting or trolling,just asking for advice.Guess I should have known I would get those comments from people that live in the citys or are not exotic animal friendly,anyway,have a happy new year :smt001

    Not to be argumentative, but Facebook is a HUGE Fan of Ko-Jac and we have never gotten jokes or responses about eating our pet or animal family member. There is radio station in the "Twin Cities" who are known for their sarcasm, but with Ko-Jac they dont make sarcastic remarks and enjoy us sending in his pictures to their website. So in all fairness I have to state again, I was taken aback by all the negative comments. I cant and wont apologize for not seeing "humor" in killing and eating Ko-Jac. To me that is the same making comments about killing and eating someones poodle or lab or retriever or cat. To much focus was made on the fact Ko-Jac is a pot belly and not enough was put on the fact he is a family pet. That is how I see it.

    OK, True Story. Friend of mine and I were out of town for a few days for a meeting somewhere and he called home to check on the kids and wife. Seems they were supposed to be headed to one of the store that sells pets, you know, dogs, cats, hermit crabs and so on a so on.

    So when he's talking to his little girl at that time (she's finished college now so it was awhile ago) she tells daddy that the got a new pet. Yes you guessed it Sally was a Pot Bellied Pig. At that time Sally weighed maybe 5-6 pounds (Not much or a Porker) and was easily carried around by his daughter and younger son.

    Well needless to say Sally became the family pet that day and had free run on the home for quite a few years. AS Sally go a little bigger it became a little more trouble to get Sally into the family van to take her to the vet's office. It wasn't some many years that Phil had to come up with a new way to get Sally into the family van that he came up with a great idea. He'd pull the car up beside the bank in the front yard and help Sally walk across a walk way they put together to get Sally in the van.

    Sure enough it wasn't much longer before the had to take the second row of seats out of the family van as Sally would get stuck between the front and middle row seats so you can see the need to remove the middle seat.

    Things got really bad when Sally could no longer turn around in the van to walk back down the ramp Phil had made to get out at the vet's office. Also several years had passed and as Sally had gotten so big it became apparent that Sally needed to live in the back yard as the she had gotten a little big to be roaming around the house any more and she could no longer go up the stairs to the second floor. Must say she had no problem going down the stairs, you just didn't want to be in front of her as you would become the cushion between her and the wall at the bottom of the stairs.

    Yes Sally went everywhere even down to the River House on the Potomac when she was smaller but after awhile the van wasn't big enough to haul Sally and the whole family so Sally got her on cottage out back at home in the back yard. Sally really was a great pet for the kids growing up and never complained. She didn't mind what you had for dinner as she liked everything even if it was a week or two old in the frig or freezer for that matter.

    The moral of the story is don't sweat the small stuff cause what ever floats your boat is fine with me. Since we have an aft cabin we just ruled out all put belly pigs because the wall at the bottom of the stairs isn't as strong as one at home.

    Certainly hope no one is offended just thought I'd give you and insight to another friends Pot Bellied Pig life.

    PS: Sorry to say Sally passed away a few years ago and no, no one got to eat her either.

    Merry Christmas to all and to all a good day!
