Should Have Called Her "Skippy"

Since I mentioned the first Jack Russell Terrier in my life in my Adventures post I thought I should introduce you to THE Jack Russell Terrier in my life: Lucy aka Lucy Poop, Little Bit and Lucy the Jack Russell Terror. Lucy is 12# of dynamite; a typical little dog who's really a big dog in a little dog suit. Totally size blind, Lucy will charge the biggest dog in the crowd only to turn and run away screaming like a little girl when the big dog turns around.

She was 7 months old when she came to us 3 years ago. A client was moving and couldn't keep her. I had already gotten to know Lucy while I was selling the house and immediately said "we'll take her!" We already had Rosey, a 2 1/2 year old Golden Retriever, so I had to say that if Rosey couldn't adjust, we couldn't keep Lucy but I don't think I could have ever taken her back.

I tell her all the time that she is the luckiest dog in the world. She's got us all wrapped around her little paw. She's got 2 acres to chase squirrels & chipmunks around and has Rosey, her big red sister who puts up with her antics on a daily basis. She loves peanut butter (shoulda called her Skippy) and waits patiently every morning to share Paul's coffee and cereal. In short, she's a brat.

Hi Sandy - Returning the blog visit favor! Love your postings. Lucy is adorable. So you have a Golden Destroyer, too. My EmmaLou is a handful. Thanks for adding me to your blogroll; I did the same with yours. Hugs, Linda

Oh, I don't think Lucy is brat! I love her energy and cuddliness. I didn't know she liked peanut butter! Now I know how to spoil her when she visits with us. She and Pearl can fight over the peanut butter jar!

What a cutie. What is it with little dogs? They all have big dog attitudes.

Linda, I saw EmmaLou on your blog. Very talented puppy! She drives. Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you continue to feel better!

Pam, she is rather cuddly for a little dog, isn't she? Gets very possessive, too. I thought you knew she likes PB. It's hysterical to watch her trying to get it off her palate.

Michele, Lucy is my first little dog. I thought they were all weanies and yappy. Not Lucy!
