Did I mention in an earlier post that I got a Jack Russell Terrier? I should have typed a Jack Russell TERROR! Fancy's motto seems to be "Eat it, and if you can't eat it, chew it into a million pieces!". She has already disposed of one poisonous snake in our yard! Having said these things, I must say that I haven't had a puppy in several years, and I find it exhilerating to play with a dog with such boundless energy! I just hope that I can "chew-proof" my home enough that my wife doesn't disown the both of us! Seriously, though, Fancy has been a balm to my grieving spirit after having lost my beloved Bitsy. The fact that Fancy is completely different from my deeply missed little chihuahua has been a blessing. I don't expect the Jack to be anything like my Bitsy Bug, and Fancy has "fit the bill"! I think that I can see Bitsy in my hearts eye giving her little "smirk" that I remember so well seeing me once again having to mediate between my dog and my wife! Maybe Fancy will have me trained sooner or later! Best wishes to ALL Jack owners!

Tnx, Petmum! Having a new little friend does not end the grief of losing another, but it does make it more bearable!

hi andy! so glad to hear you have a new little one. but OMG!!! do i know what youre going thru!!! after losing my sweet fred, lucy adopted me. well, my little terror is know as lucy-fur! shes a terror with jack russell terror! holy cow. her latest nickname is tornado cuz just this weekend, she left a path of destruction...in my apartment.. can i just tell you, cover the electric cords, dont leave anything on tables, or counters cuz they can jump. dont leave libary books laying around, or remote controls, eye glasses, water bottles (lucy figured out how to twist open the bottles). expect chewed up carpets and door molding (get bitter apple spray. it works), playing with bees and all sorts of bugs (i dont know what id do if she was playing with a snake) never ending energy, missing shoes, chewed up shoes, torn up mail, toilet paper, kleenex and everything else they can find but in return you will have never-ending joy. im so happy for you. i so agree. lucy has been my little life saver. after i lost fred i felt so lost and alone. now im to exhausted and pooped-out to even think about it:) she keeps me going and going and going. we are taking her camping in a coupla weeks and im feeling a bit sorry for those bears. they have no idea who's coming to town smile.gif
i wont mention the countless trips to the hospital (sigh) becuase she is such a little troublemaker smile.gif
i know freds "upstairs" laughing.
