Walking the Dogs

My mother-in-law, had many Jack Russel’s and from two there were seven; Mitch, Sally, Buster, Rosie (with two disabled back legs) Suzie, Badger, Patch and Tess. She used to walk all of them at the same time.

My daughter and son used to take them out for pocket money.

They had personalities all their own. Mitch used to love a game of football, and even when told by the vet he couldn’t still ran around like he was still a pup. Sally was quite relaxed, and Buster was a little nutty.

My favourite was Rosie. She wasn’t scared of any other dog, and would pick a fight with a Rottweiler without any fear. The other dog would always come off worse. She was small, but acted like she was stronger.

If I were ever to get another dog I would definitely get a Jack Russel. They are completely mad, but loyal too. Also, they fit better on your lap. It’s strange, but up until a few years ago, I was a cat person. Now I spot a dog while driving my car, even the huge ones, and think they are cute.

Dogs can be frightening for some, I understand that, but it isn’t the dogs, but the humans who train them.

  1. My most beloved pal, ever, was an Irish Jack Russell named Ollie. I lost him in 2019 at the age of 15 and deep down never recovered. My truck has a decal with a Jack’s profile which says, “If you don’t have one, you don’t know Jack.”
    I agree about that breed wholeheartedly.
    My current rescue is not a Jack because I didn’t want to ever compare my babies. She’s a love but Ollie will always own a large part of my heart that’s only his. ❤

    1. up until I met my husband I was afraid of dogs. We had a Alsatian next door and he was vicious, but then it was the owners fault not his. My husband always had dogs and had an Old English Sheepdog at the time, and he was so sweet I got to like them. I got my first dog as a pup (German Shephard, mixed with other breeds. When he passed, I got my latest dog Titan, Rottweiler, Shephard cross. Now if I see a dog being walked I think aww.
