Just got a "Dear Ian" email


She's got a new dog. She's calling it a Bull Arab, better known to me as an Aussie Pig Dog

Here's the wiki photo of one....


The Bull Arab is an Australian (http://forum.woodenboat.com/wiki/Australia) Cur-Dog breed (http://forum.woodenboat.com/wiki/Cur) that is bred primarily as a finder and lugger (http://forum.woodenboat.com/wiki/Catch_dog) for wild boar hunting (http://forum.woodenboat.com/wiki/Boar_hunting). They are also used for catching wild scrub bulls in outback Australia. They are generally a loyal dog, with a great temperament. They were bred with the need to create a dog with enough size to stop large boars but with enough speed and stamina to outlast many of the other heavier mastiffs. The Bull Arab is not yet a registry-recognized breed of dog in Australia, though there are those that are working towards getting it recognized as such.

Zak got his first bath and was allowed to be photographed..... not that he looks happy about it



For size comparison... he's with my son's dog here. Jet is a black lab. His father was an Australian champion.

I'm liking this dog. He's got a lovely temperament and he gets on fabulously with the black Lab - which is how he was selected. Not sure this house is big enough for us all though.....

Got a head like a robber's dog. This should tell you it's time you went home for Chrissie.

Reckon the Labbie has it's measure though. :D

The Lab came in with a hole in his head this morning. May or may not have been the Bull Arab. They are pretty similar in the play I've seen... but if I had to choose one I didn't want to go up against... it'd be the Arab. The Lab is 5kg heavier btw, but he started off thin...
