Jack Russell

Dispose of ALL dark clothing. Jack Russell’s shed once a year, for 365 days. All regular visitors should also dispose of ALL dark clothing.

Get a sense of humour – quickly.

You may think you have put something out of reach of a Jack Russell – put it higher… no really…put it higher!

Your home will be guarded against all threats including – post, window cleaners, leaves, loud noises, the dog in the garden ½ mile away and family and friends.

Be prepared to apologise! A few examples I have had cause to use –
‘I am so sorry she attacked your Rottweiler’
‘Officer I am so sorry, it is just that she doesn’t like people standing still’
‘I am very sorry about your shopping trolley; it was the squeaky wheel that got her attention!’
‘I am sorry, but I did warn you not to let your child try to pick her up!’
‘You need to call your puppy away …… I am so sorry’
‘Dear neighbours, I am sorry about the noise in the garden recently, my Jack Russell is defending us from the conkers falling from the tree!’
‘I am so sorry; I have got her now, it’s safe to get out of your tractor’
‘I am so sorry; thank goodness your horse is so calm’
‘Hello, haven’t seen you in ages……Oh dear I am sorry that your Rottweiler is now terrified of all small white dogs’
‘Is it the golden retriever you are calling for? I am afraid he is hiding in that bush back there after my dog had a go at him’
‘I am really sorry, don’t cry, I will pay for a new football’

Jack Russell’s are nearly always contemplating one of two things – mischief or world domination.

Squirrels, rabbits and other small game cause selective deafness in Jack Russell’s.

A bored or under exercised Jack Russell can destroy an average 3 bedroom semi-detached house in under 15 minutes.

Jack Russell’s get away with murder because they are Jack Russell’s.

Be prepared to laugh until you cry.


The Adventures of Theo and the tale of the squashed Jack Russell

Dog Blog

One thing you never want to do is squash a Jack Russell. I can tell you now that she wasn’t pleased and having my nose a few inches away from said unhappy dog was not where I would have chosen it to be. So am I a self confessed squisher of dogs? No this tale […]
