The Two Terrrrrriers

People have told me that when they die, they want to come back as one of our dogs. Me and my partner have 2, six yr old, mini fox terriers and they are such a huge part of our family. I must admit they do get alot of special treatment. They bring so much joy to our lives that we want to return the favour. A few crazy examples include; making mini pancakes, they have their own toy room, and doggie birthday parties. These dogs also get heaps of our attention, including 1-2 long walks daily and hours of play at home. 

One morning I went to get the mail, I didn't see my Rocco walk out the front door with me and I accidently locked him out of the house for 15 minutes. I looked everywhere in the house for him, I was in panic, then I opened the front door and there he was, looking up at me with this look on his face like, (what the ???? lady). These dogs will NEVER run away, they know they got it good, even if their mom is a loopy bird sometimes.

I have had many pets throughout my life and bonded amazingly with them, but these two dogs are somehow the most in tuned with my every thought and mood. We have such a connection that I almost wonder if they are psychic sometimes. If I just "think" about taking them out to the park, they stop what they're doing and stare at me, (the same reaction as if I said, "Lets go for a walk"). Whenever my dogs are asleep in the other room and I wish they would come over and hang out with me, they appear out of nowhere.

Anyone who has had a terrier, not only knows how intelligent they are, but also how  persistent they can be, haha. When they don't get their way, they sulk, they try to challenge the boundaries, and they can be stubborn. The strange thing is that I even love these qualities in them, they crack me up at ever turn. They are ambitious, optimistic, fun loving, protective of family, and very caring individuals, all the qualities we as humans strive to possess.
