A Man's Best Friend

Everyone, meet Susie. She belongs to a friend of ours, Chuckles. In fact, you can also find her on Ree's post about a long day on horseback. I have even mentioned her in my post Monday Monday back in August. She is a very loving dog. Spoiled! Talented. (How many dogs do you know that can ride a horse?)

I love Jack Russells, but I only want one if it acts like Susie.

I LOVED Jack Russells until we had one for about five minutes. Then again, we had just moved into a new house that needed a lot of work and I had an almost 2-year-old and a 3 1/2-year-old. Trying to house-break a kid and a dog at the same time wasn't working. Plus, the pup kept running away from home (found a neighbor who fed her bites of ham all the time). SMART animals, but apparently, we weren't smart enough for her.

Great picture, I see lots of personality :).

My cousin has Jack Russels.. and they have been known to kill the neighbors cats... and generally be pretty busy and noisy. Weren't they bred to be rat killers?

Cute, smart... but like you say. They need a special owner!
I miss my rottweiler. He was 'my' dog, and stuck to me like molasses.

I get teary when I see yours up in your photo bar.

Okay, Lori! :) You must have skipped the part of the post about we were on the road back from Creede (Colorado). I guess since I have posted several posts about Creede I just assume people know. Sorry! Anyway, the bear was on the west side of Capulin, New Mexico. We have heard since then that it is a regular occurence. :)


Pamela - I would share Hoss with ya, but with his arthritis being as bad as it is he wouldn't fare well in your country. :)

Thanks everyone. I can't wait to get a print of this photo of Susie so I can give it to Chuckles. I think he will love it!

Our youngest daughter has a Jack Russell Terrorist (I hope using that word doesn't send up a Red Flag). His name is Waylon and he is a brat. He's not a typically-colored JR, but has markings like a Doberman, wire-haired, and has the personality of a PMSing crocodile.
Actually, he pretty lovable...when he's asleep.

A good Jack Russell is a real treasure, a bad one is a real pain. I had one here for about 8 weeks. It was dumped nearby and I took it in while I tried to find an owner. I would have kept it but it attacked the neighour's sheep, so there was no future for him here.

Wow, I thought Jack's chasing and catching squirrels was crazy, but Sheep! Wow! I think I've heard it all now. :)

Hey WT - How are you doing?

You forgot to mention that Susie was MINE for four years until Chuck stole her from me. I raised that little girl.

But she belongs with Chuck. He is clearly her human.
