Jack Russell Terrier

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".

I cannot imagine a day without Dozer.  He is my constant companion - I take him on walks and runs with me, and I cuddle with him on the couch in the evenings.

Is there anything in your life that you don't ever want to live a day without?

I can't imagine a day without coming home to greetings from my precious pup and my wonderful boyfriend.


  1. Dozer is adorable! I can't wait to get my own dog. :)

  2. Dozer is a hoot! I love fun, energetic dogs! I too would be lost without our sweet pup:)

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

  3. Dozer is a cutie! Thanks for sharing with us.

    I can't live without massages. They feel so good!

  4. I think your Dozer and my Nilla must be long-lost siblings! I love the little snarl he does while balancing food. I'm going to have to try that! (With my JRT, not my own face, haha.)
