    The wife and I are between Silas and Doc. Our lab is turning 9 this year and we wanted an extra set of eyes and ears around the house. We have a 5yo, 3yo and a newborn and so it is a good time for another puppy. Our 5yo daughter can't wait.

    Puppies are da bomb.....until the chewing starts.>>
    Put up your shoes, elec. cords, and anything else that's chewable. They like sticks, but the house becomes a mulch pile.;)
    He's a real cutie.

    Any dog any time is a great addition to your family! Our 12 yo JRT passed suddenly of cardiac arrest in August literally as I was walking into the vet with him for an annual check up. Never had any heart issues or symptoms. Our other JRT, Bryn was so depressed as he grew up with him, our vet told us to get another dog or put him on meds since he wasn't eating or doing anything. All of our JRT have been rescued so we found Riley, just over a yr old on petfinder.com around Labor Day. Here is a photo of him on our bed as well as a photo of Bryn out in the snow a few weeks ago. He is usually plopped in front of the stove so he isn't real happy in cold these day :) image.jpg image.jpg

    Funny how that works uh? We had big dogs growing up, irish wolf hounds, german shepards, other large bred lab muts from the pound. I met my husband and POOF now little Jack Russell Terriers! Granted the THINK they are big dogs :)

    We had a Yorkie when we were first married, I have never seen a dog that had a bigger set of b**ls. He wasn't afraid of anything. Sadly he was so attached to my wife that when our daughter started to crawl he started nipping.

    Awesome! Lost our GSD last year, really great dogs and they love their families.

    We rescued another little 74lb critter who was being locked in a travel kennel and was basically crippled when we got him, 1 year later and he is probably one of the best dogs I've ever had.. Only problem is, he loves sneaking into the kids beds at night to sleep...:rolleyes:

    We have two JR's as well,, Benny is 8 months and Lily is 13... she is almost blind from diabetes's. Gets two shots a day with her meals.. She still get's around fine, whether it's out in one of our farm fields or going through the woods never runs into anything. They're great dogs! Sorry to hear of your loss;sick.... Charlie

    I think dogs really know when you have given them a second chance at a better life,,, you reap what you sow,,,, you wind up with a great friend... As far as the kids beds,,, he probably senses that they are the most vulnerable and is staying close to them at night for protection. Animals have a sixth sense. He's sure a nice looking addition to your family. We use to have two Rotti's,,, at night one would go in my sons room and one with us.. The had each end of the house covered. I wouldn't want to see what would happen to an intruder if they were that smart to cover both ends of the house.. Dogs have very keen minds. Dogs ask for nothing in return,,,they are on going givers of love to their family members,,, something that should never go unrewarded in my eyes.

    Charly . . . you have no idea of how much that pic of your dog all splayed out in front of the Fireview (as if he was melting) amuses me . . . I absolutely love that photo.

    I was just at the right place at the right time with a camera near by... Benny never did do that again. Glad you liked it. It caught my eye to get a picture of him..

    I know what your saying,,, our two dogs are 13 and 15,,, should we get another dog,,well if we were going to we better do it so the youngster can get some pointers about the rules around here from the old folks,,,, they are the best teachers,,,, so we decided to get Benny about 6 months ago... It's worked out great... I can't picture being without a dog and yet it's nice to be able to just go too...I always liked having two dogs,,, I thought it allowed for play and communication . After all they are pack animals.
