Are All Jack Russells This Curious?

Are All Jack Russells This Curious?

Share

I hate to compare dogs.  Each is special and unique in their own way.  But, I’ve owned a Cocker Spaniel Poodle, a Collie, a Lab/Golden Retriever Mix, and now a Jack Russell Terrier.  No dog was as curious as Misha. Are Jack Russell Terriers the Most Curious Dog Breed? Maybe “most curious” is an exaggeration.  How about one of the most curious?  Is this something specific to Jack Russell Terriers?  Maybe terriers have a curiosity streak because of their breeding…

Saying Goodbye to Summit: A Family Dog

Saying Goodbye to Summit: A Family Dog

Share

At some point, every pet owner must decide when it’s time to say goodbye.  My sister’s dog, Summit, became very ill a week or so ago.  She was diagnosed with acute kidney disease.  When her numbers came down, they brought her home.  They hoped she would recover, but she didn’t.  She never regained her appetite. It was time to make that decision no pet owner wants to make.  They had the vet come to their house.  She died in her…

How a Dog’s Physical Appearance Changes Over the Years

How a Dog’s Physical Appearance Changes Over the Years

Share

The other day, a friend showed me a photo of a dog because the ears reminded her of Misha.  The photo reminded me of one I had taken of Misha when she was 6 months old. I went back through my folders to find it and I was surprised to see how much my dog’s physical appearance had changed in 8 years. Let’s take a trip down memory lane… My Dog at 8 Weeks Old This was the day Misha…

After she got her treat, she went back to bed.  But, her blanket was on the outside and she wanted to get on the inside. She looked around for a human to help her, but no one was in sght.  Well, they were but they weren’t very helpful.  She…

Misha Has a Sick Day

Misha Has a Sick Day

Share

Normally, I chose something silly for the BlogPaws BlogHop, but today has not been a good day.  Misha wasn’t feeling well.  It’s no fun when your dog is sick! Misha started out the day just fine.  Then, at 10:30 she threw up.  She seemed fine afterwards.   She was running around like normal.  No problem. But, in the afternoon she got antsy.  She went to bed, she got up, she sat down, she got up again.  Eventually, she settled on this…

My Dog is Getting Used to People

My Dog is Getting Used to People

Share

A funny thing happened on the way to Misha’s 8th birthday. Something I really didn’t even notice. She began to lose her fear of people. My Dog is Afraid of Strangers So, this is how Misha usually greets people… She’s terrified of strangers. When meeting someone new, she would not sniff their shoes like a normal dog. She would bark incessantly. It often took several months of regular meetings before she would let a new person pet her. Case in…
