Oh, the things she is afraid of

Oh, the things she is afraid of

I sometimes forget that Misha is afraid of so many things. Sudden, loud noises are one of things she is afraid of. We were in the yard today. I had her on one of those extendable leashes because the grass has been hit with mushrooms the last couple days and I don’t fully trust her (she likes to pull things out of the grass). The bottom part of gutter pipe had popped off and was on the lawn. So, while…

Too much partying for me, dude

Too much partying for me, dude

We celebrate a couple of family birthdays on Sunday. I always take Misha with me if I can because she needs the socialization. And, there is nothing like the tired a dog gets from getting too much attention all day. This is Misha on Tuesday–two days after the party. She was so tired she didn’t even want to go for her walk. She saved all her energy for food. These special days take a lot out of her. She’ll still…

I’ve read a little bit here and there about Jack Russell Terriers and their characteristics.  They are supposed to be fierce hunters and very brave.  Brave huh?

Earlier today, I heard something fall on the ground. It didn’t sound like anything was broken, so I ignored it. About an hour later, I noticed the new package of underwear I just bought today laying on the ground. “Somebody” decided to chew off half the flap–and it wasn’t me. I swear, sometimes, I think she is a Jack Russell-Goat mix. You would think we never feed her.

Don’t You Give Me the Butt!

Don’t You Give Me the Butt!

What would you say if this is the way your dog greeted you? This is how Misha greets me when I am not paying attention to her.  I’ll be sitting on the couch.  Misha will run in front of me, throw her head to the ground, and stick her butt in the air.  She looks back to make sure I see it.  If she is not pointing directly at me, she’ll scoot over so she is. A couple of times,…
