At the Portland Jetport

My wife and I are both on vacation this week. Today we had new carpeting put in the living room to replace the Brady Bunch carpeting that was there. We only oversaw for a bit because we then drove the 300 or so miles to Portland. We bought an 11 month old Jack Russell Terrier and he's being flown here from Arkansas. I already have a Golden Retriever Maggie so she'll have a "brother". It's going to be long drive home!

Those Jack Russell Terriers are a ball of energy, play, play, play. I own one, so I know. They are extremely smart and love to learn new tricks or do obstacle courses , fetch, hide and seek, digging, hunting/tracking, whew! They are an aggressive breed, so keep that in mind around other dogs and kids.

 

They are a great companion and really loyal. Have fun with your new friend, get lots of training early.

The ride home was fine. He laid on Penny's lap and didn't make a peep. He and Maggie hit it off right away, the only danger being Maggie trampling him underfoot. He slept on the floor on my side of the bed, not a sound.

 

Very mellow little pup, amazingly.

Adorable pup.

Must be the season.

We went out to our local SPCA to meet a 3 month old giant Schnauzer on Saturday. Sadly or good depending on how you look at it, she was already adopted. Hopefully by a good family.

Our older girl, also Maggie, passed away a little over 2 years ago. We think it is time to add another pup to the family. We currently have a 6 year old Belgian Shepherd. ( Dakota).

All the best with the newest family member K.S.

Penny already named him Dobby. Evidently it's a Harry Potter name but I've never seen any of the movies or read any of the books so it means nothing to me.

 

She had a JRT a few years back, before she and I met, and because of work schedule and the overall disarray of that previous life, she gave her away. I know that tore her up and she would mention it often. This little guy was owned by a breeder. Apparently there's a skin condition that he carries the gene for, so they opted to not breed him. They had him neutered and we basically bought him on pet value alone.

No idea what his diet has been. He doesn't eat enough to keep a bird alive. I figure that's just him acclimating. He started off being a little pushy around Maggie. Penny said he had "Little Man Syndrome". It's only been a couple days and the change is incredible. He and Maggie are inseparable and play constantly. They run, chase, nap, all that.
