Title: The Mongo Man is GROWING!
Post by: Big58cal on July 28, 2010, 05:03:45 PM
The little turd is growing like a weed!  :shock:

Here's the "before" picture, the day I got him when he was 6 weeks old.

Below is the "after" picture of him now, almost 19 weeks old.

Talk about a "rough" life.  :roll: :roll:

I took the pictures earlier today.  They aren't that great, but they've got "the boy" in there as a size reference.  He hasn't grown as much in 13 weeks as the dog has.  ;D  Last week when I took him to the vet to get his "big boy" shots (rabies, distemper, etc) he was just shy of 19 lbs. :shock:  I know he's a garbage gut!  He thinks he's always starving to death.  :roll:  Even though I keep his food out in front of him.

And that's another thing!!!  >:(  That freaking Iams puppy food is outrageous!!!  :tickedoff  There's cheaper stuff out there, but I can't find any that has as much crude protein in it as the Iams.  With him getting bigger though, he's eating a heck of a lot more!  :shock:

Haven't really messed with "squirrel" training him yet.  Since I've been off, I've started working on some basic obedience stuff with him.  OMG!  He's hard-headed!!!  :tickedoff :tickedoff  One thing that he HAS learned though is to not growl at me if I go to take something away from him.  :wink: :knuppel2  That s**t don't fly with me!  :knuppel2

He's getting better about the house training, but it's still a long battle.  :roll:  He's getting better about "holding" it, but not so good about "telling" me that he's got to go outside.  The result is usually a quart-sized puddle!  :shock: >:(  Like I said, still more work to do on that.  ;D

 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 O0 That's a mighty fine looking pair there, BC!

Yep, those dogs are known to be hard headed but shine in the woods.

The weather has been too miserable to work with the pup. I bet he doesn't need much work to figure out his part of squirrel hunting.

John first!  :roll:  Ain't nothin' wrong with lettin' the boy play with the little dog, is there?  ???  The boy had been outside playing and had gotten pretty hot, so he was in the house cooling down.  Mongo came in too to "chill out" for a little while.

Hey, at least my dog doesn't wear little pink ribbons and dresses like John's do.  And not to mention that he's still a pup!

And no Bo, Mongo has been pretty much leaving the geriatric Pomeranian alone.  He's finally figured out that the little old dog doesn't like him.  As for the cat, he still chases her, but not as much.  O0  She doesn't venture downstairs too much anymore.  ;D  Just as soon as she hears the back door open, she makes a bee-line toward the stairs.  ;D ;D ;D O0  But it's usually with Mongo in hot pursuit!  :twisted: O0

Mongo's looking sharp - won't be too much longer and it'll be time to protect the BC estate from the savage buck toothed hordes of the forest!!   :twisted:

FINALLY!

Someone who truly understands!  Though it really surprises me that coming from GP.  ???

As for the cat and the Pom.............  :roll:  The Pom the wife drug in while we were living up in Greenup County.  The poor little feller is older than dirt, is pretty much deaf, and only has about 4 good teeth left.  I don't think he's going to make it much longer though.  :-\  He's a hateful little dog, and I've punted him like a football more than once, but I still hate to see anything happen to the little feller.

As for the cat......  >:( >:( >:(  I HATE CATS!!  And the wife knows it!  She and the boy came dragging that thing in several years ago after someone dropped the thing by the babysitter's house.  I think they threw her out of a moving car and she hit a tree or something.  She's definitely brain damaged.  :idiot2  One of her pupils is larger than the other and she definitely doesn't land on all 4 feet when she falls, like a normal cat would.  I've punted her like a football several times as well.  The only satisfaction I get is watching Mongo go after her.  :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

As for Mongo, he's "the MAN"!  O0  All 3 of the dogs are males, but Mongo is the only one "still packing".  :wink:  He's getting tougher than nails as well.  He wrestles with 'the big dog' all day long.  Considering that Tye (the big dog) outweighs him by about 5x, he does pretty good holding his own.  Mongo is faster than Tye and gives him a run for his money when he's chasing Tye around the yard.

I'm going to start running a squirrel hide around on a string sometime next week, so we'll see how he does with that.  I had tied one on a string and messed with him a little with it when he was about 8-9 weeks old.  He didn't really know "what" he was doing, but you could tell that he "knew" that the squirrel hide was more than just a toy to him.  O0  When he'd grab it, it was a PITA to get him to let go of it.  O0  His other toys, no so much.

So anyway, the way I look at it, anyone can have a pack of dogs for coons, but they're nothing compared to having a little Mountain Feist for squirrels.  O0  As they say, "Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog."  ;D ;D ;D

I am actually really excited to see how this whole squirrel hunting dog thing goes, please do document it for us.  before i found this site i'd never even heard of a dog trained to hunt squirells.  i guess it's not really a west coast thing.   :idiot2

Duneman, check out squirrel dog central. Squirrel hunting with dogs is nothing new. In fact the squirrel hunting comps are growing every year. I want, no I NEED another dog. I'm still trying to decide on a hound/cur from amazingcur kennels or another bluetick.

I've seen a few hounds that would hunt coon and squirrels.
 As far as Mongo, I bet he makes a great squirrel dog. O0
