    The Dirty Dawg

    My friendship with an old pal was tested to the limits last year.  The lady in question has a rather nice house set in the countryside - wildlife aplenty in the garden.  She insisted that I bring my dog into the house.  "She'll be fine - I love dogs!"  The doors to the...

    The Best Mate A Bloke Could Ask For.

    I so very much miss my little jack russell. He was the happiest dog you could ever meet, he would always make these strange, not quite barking, noises whenever he got excited which was generally when he met people both new and old. He would jump up and down wagging his tail...

    Sue and Doog, the love of my life...

    I love my dog, a long haired, rough coated Jack Russell terrier called Dougal, more than any man. Men let you down, lie, cheat and take your money, all he wants is love and food and walkies! He is 12 and a half, and has seen me through many traumas. He is there for me when I...

    I Own The Anti-christ, As My Daughter Lovingly Refers To Her.

    My Jack Russell Sophie is truly unique.  Annoyingly smart, deceptive, destructive, untrainable and evil.  I love this dog so much I go to great lengths to keep her even though she hates everyone, and everything.  She had a bad experience with a vet and has never...

    LITTLE Bundles of Energy

    I love my JRT’s.  Taking them into the woods running, riding them in the back of the truck, playing Frisbee or just holding them on my lap makes me feel better about any situation.

    Becca And Lina <3

    Currently I live with my boss, and she has two jack russell terriers. Becca is 8 yrs old and is the mother of Lina who is 2 yrs old. I hear a lot of people saying negative things about jack russells whether it is that 'they are too hyper, or too aggressive'. That isn't true at...

    My Jack Russell has really vivid dreams.  She is having one now as I write this story.  A muffled high pitched woofing is coming from under the duvet!  I wonder what she is dreaming about.  Squirrels most likely - she waited for 3 hours solid on the window sill to see one...

    My Son Quarterback

    My son is part Jack Russell and part something else...his mother was a big dog.  He's JR in temperment and looks. I had no idea what I was getting when I adopted him...I was told that he was part lab and part something (the mother didn't look like a lab except in size). He...

    I Love My Bo Dog

    I love this dog. He's a royal pain but worth every minute of it. He's very energetic and I'm lucky to have time to run/walk him (sometimes 6 miles a day and still full of energy). I used to have a labrador, she was so much easier to train. This one is a handful. Does anyone...

    I love my Jack Russell terrier.  Everyone told me not to get a Jack - they are hyper and crazy but Buster is the best dog.  He has about 10 minutes a day of energy, crazy energy but the rest of the time, he is such a little snuggle bug.  He loves to play.  I...

    I love my dog who is kind of a mixup between a

    jack russell terrier and some other kind of dog. He's mostly a JR though. He's smart and awesome and sweet and loyal. I wouldn't trade him for anything.

    My Jack Russell Is Sleeping Under The Comforter Right Now!

    My husband and I got her a month after we were married, and now we have another dog as well, but she knows she is the princess of the family. She is such a stinker, always trying to get into mischief, but so loving at the same time. Cuddles from her are the best!

    I Miss Bull

    We had a JRT (smooth hair 'pudding' build) which we had to put down last April. He almost made it to 17! Bull was NOT a sweetheart to other people OR big dogs, which was a big factor for avoiding the dog beach. He was not a cuddly thing, but was loyal, entertaining and a...
