Learn a new Trick!

Need a new trick to teach your dog? Let me help you learn Back Up! I do Back up so much that I back up everytime the lady mentions the word, then at one point she doesn't reward me quick enough and I do a paws up. That is what dogs that have trained a lot do, offer behaviors hoping one of them is the one the lady wants!

Wall Street Journal reports Poop Pickup Contest

This is too funny, but if you watch , you will notice that picking up with the hand involves a baggie covering the hand, thank goodness!

ABC Wednesday! Fear of Failure !

Fear of failure might just keep you from achieving all you can.

Overcome fear and you might find that you can do anything!

How many JRTs can say that they did a water rescue of a Portugese Water Dog??

New Toy Time

Nothing better than a new toy, especially if it is a treat dispensing toy. Personally , these are my favorite kind of toys and I have quite a few of them. This is a new toy the lady brought back from the Global Pet Expo. It is one of the Busy Buddy line of toys and is called Tug a Jug. Notice I decided to bark at it , hoping it would give me a treat!

It's cold out!

I often wonder why some of our owners are relucant to put coats on us. If it is cold, wear a coat! It isn't just little dogs that need coats, large dogs with short coats and little body fat need their coats as well. If it is cold, wear a coat!

ABC Wednesday! E is for ?

Jack Russells are known for their Excessive Energy. We love to run, we love to play, we love to be active.

Lack of Exercise can Exacerbate our ability to get into trouble.

A tired Jack is a good Jack!

My advice is to get as much exercise as you can. It makes you feel better.

It keeps you fit as is Evident in the photos of me running. Get out today and get some Exercise!

Westminster Monday!

Today, dogs from all over the country are competing for the coveted Best In Show award. The Westminster Kennel Club show is the most famous dog show in the world.

On Tuesday night, the Best in Show will be awarded!

My lady is leaving me behind again! This time she is headed to California to do a Salty Dogs book signing at the Global Pet Expo. She is convinced I would not like flying, too many noises for a sound sensitive dog!
She will be back posting next week.Till then, have a nice Valentine's Day!

No one said it is EASY to adjust!

I have told you that often you just have to adjust to new things in your life, well I am sorry but Pilgrim learning to do agility is just about the most I can handle. He not only wants to lay between the jumps while I am working out, but he also insists on learning the game.

I will just have to get over it, and adjust, but I can't say it is going to be easy!

What's a Dog to Do?

There is not much I can do. I am only a dog and the lady has decided the cat is going to stay.

Each day Pilgrim creeps closer. The lady gives me plenty of treats when I don't lift a lip at the intruder.

The only thing I can do is eat the treats, and don't lift the lip and show my fearsome teeth so I can get even more treats. Sharing the house with Pilgrim does have it benefits!

JRT buried alive, survives two weeks till rescued!

At I just read this amazing story about a Jack Russell Terrier that survived being buried for two weeks. He was one lucky pup that someone finally heard his cries . Click here to Read all about it!
So Jack Russells out there, beware where you dig!!

Staying out of Trouble!

I know it is hard to stay out of trouble. There are all kinds of tempations out there. I find it helps to have some type of barrier to help you remember your boundaries. For me it is a baby gate that helps me stay out of trouble. For you it might be as simple as exercising self control. Like me tho, you might need a barrier!

ABC Wednesday! C is for Canine Citizenship!

Us Canines work hard at being good Canine Citizens! One thing I find that helps is to be Committed to learning new things. The Clicker is a great training tool, if only the human could get her timing down! Here I am learning to be Considerate and Compassionate by giving the humans a tissue when they have a Cold.

The Clicker is helping me learn to be Considerate and ask politely for the treat!

Here , with a Click of the Clicker , I am learning to find the keys so the humans can go do their Commute!
Good Canine Citizens are well trained and with a quick Click of the Clicker , your human can help you be a good Citizen.

Need a laugh? Click on this !

I find humans often need a laugh. While this video doesn't star a JRT, it does star a border collie . Watch Whiplash, the monkey, riding the border collie in a tv ad. It will bring a smile to your face!

Don't be afraid to get down and dirty!

Sometimes I see humans that spend a lot of time avoiding gettting dirty. The nice thing about getting dirty is that you Can get clean again, it just takes a little effort. Today, get out , get dirty , then enjoy getting clean again. I don't mind getting clean, but then again, I get a treat for being polite!

Buddy eats the Super Bowl Tickets!

I have always found shredding packages, while very rewarding at the time, to be a very bad idea! I have shredded some things in my day, trash, packages, toys, but Buddy has topped it all!
Buddy not only shredded the package but shredded the Super Bowl tickets. My shredding has never involved anything of major value, but Buddy's shredding spree involved tickets worth
$1,800 tickets. Now that is a lot of treats.

Read all about Buddy's shredding and see the video at Agatha & Louise's blog!
