Perhaps the hobbits can use this little fellow for Truphull hunting?  I think they'd have a hard time with the bigger pigs that are traditionally used by humans.  (Check out the Truphull entry in the Herbarium, under Fungi for more info.)

Just a little bump to make working on this easier. And as well as that I have a question, probably for Garret. Is there a breed of dog especially known for its intelligence? I have had a look and found a few breeds that are said to be intelligent, but I was wondering if you knew of one in particular by chance. And don't worry if you don't, it is pretty specific and I don't think it is vital. If anyone else knows either, I'd love to hear. The breeds I have so far are: the Cattrel, the Kodael, the Voldon, the Eophyrhim Hunting Hound and the Zeiphyrian Hunting Hound. If any of you know one of these is especially intelligent, do tell. If not, I'll get over it. grin

I'd say the Kodael out of the three of mine you have listed. Its meant to be a fairly intelligent dog as its known for being pretty cooperative and can be trained to do a wide array of things easier than most. If your looking for one that was meant to be pretty intelligent than I'd say that one, but possibly especially known for its intelligence. Rather its more known for its usefulness. Hope that helps a bit Mannix :).

Well, my Rimrunner Terrier is very intelligent as well, being part fox, so it might be a possible candidate as well.  It's a pretty small dog, though, and I don't know if you're looking for a larger one.  Another possibility might be a dog that is part Ashmari wolf, for those canines are quite smart as well.

Enjoy!

Oh, that reminds me, thank you Garret and Alysse for the help with the dogs, I was just thinking of putting it in as a reference between the pig and dog, saying their intelligence is said to rival that of the intelligent breed of dog. Size doesn't really matter, so I guess it is a toss up between Kodael and Rimrunner. Hmm, I'll probably go with Kodael, as they are very popular throughout the kingdom and I know when I look at my working dog and my terriers, I would assume the working dog is more intelligent if I didn't know them, but in truth he's very dopey. But that's just him, a sheep dog scared of sheep. Thanks still Alysse, I'm still grateful. Sort of randomly though, there might be another terrier to join yours soon. ;)

Ooo, cool!  I invented him mostly because all the dogs we had are these great big bruisers and I thought we should have some little dogs.  I'm toying with the idea of a lap dog for nobles, but I have so much on my plate right now...

Don't forget the Rimrunner, Alysse!
And those pigs are, quite simply, adorable.

A little bump from the second page. I'm very close to finishing this, so it will remind me and make it easier for me to get at it. And if anyone wants to suggest anything, especially something for Myth/Lore, please do. I haven't really thought too much about that section yet.

I've been gone for a while. (Let's say on vacation) I just wanted to stop in and let you know I've been treating my little hogling quite well. If ever there was a fat hogling this one's it! I still quite enjoy this entry.

How charming this hog is!

Mannix, in case you're still looking for inspiration for the Lore section, a few ideas could derive from the mating ritual:

Maybe a present given with the intention to woo a sweetheart could be called a "hogling's gift"?

A young hobbit asking an elder for advice on how to go about approaching the lass/lad of his/her choice may hear the reply: "think like a hogling", implying that he/she should do something to please her/him, whether it be to give a material present or a compliment.

A hobbit who overdoes the "hogling-thinking", that is, one who persists with his advances while it's obvious to everyone but him that the object of his affection is not interested, could be said to "shove hogling hoards into her face".
