I always had a lot of pets when I was a kid. We raised a rooster, chickens, a pot-bellied pig, two German Shepherds, a dachshund, a peek-a-poo, beta fish, hamsters, and several cats.
The first pet I've owned as an adult is my Jack Russell Terrier, Dozer. My boyfriend gave me Dozer for a Valentine's Day present! He is "our" dog, and I couldn't ask for a better pet. He is obedient, energetic, friendly, and can always make me smile. He is two years old, but acts just like a puppy!
This post is an illustration of just how fun a Jack Russell Terrier can be. As you can see, we've taught him how to balance food and other objects on his head and hold them there until he is given the command "free".
