Dog on the Hunt

Often when I am walking around the farm my Jack Russell comes with me. I have to confess, that I love her company. She is adventurous and bossy. What a great combination.
Here she is after something that she has spotted in the grass.
Working in the grass to find a treasure, and I was hoping it was not alive...

Here she is giving me, "The Eye".


Obviously I was disturbing her work.

  2. She does look to be the busy little helper. I fell in love with that breed after watching Eddie on Frasier for so many years. They do give the best "you talkin' to me?" sideways glances. :)

  3. Our Sadie gets that way sometimes, like we're bugging her when she's "busy".

  13. Oh, that look! They are great and high energy dogs. I've known a few too, but never had one live with me. Did she catch anything?

  15. Canyon Girl - She did not find anything this time. But, she has been known to come out of the weeds with a snake in her mouth.

  17. she reminds me of Trixie...
    Trixie looks at me like that as if to say "well are you coming to see what I found?"
    If she came out with a snake....she would have a hard time catching me/ha

  20. My daughter has a JR named Ellie. She is SOOOO busy and loves to chase and catch moles, and anything else she can catch.

  24. Our dogs are giant. I keep telling my husband I want a nice little dog to keep me company in the house. He's not on board yet.

  25. What a beautiful dog! If it were my dogs, it would be some of our socks she's trying to hide...

  26. Thanks to TV's "Frazier," I've been interested in Jack Russels for awhile, but I've heard their dispositions can be iffy. Whaddya think?

  27. We had a Jack Russell we named Tiger. He has been gone a long time now but was mostly black and white spotted. The last dog we had was almost identical but a female and we never had her tail cut.

    I love dogs but my wife doesn't want to go through the separation thing again. We have done it so many times.

    I would take your gal any time you wanted to drop her off. she is a nice gal.

    I am surprised. I would have assumed the post holes were done with an auger on the front of a tractor or on the back. Farmchick you need to get a post hole digger for your farmer for Christmas.

  28. I walk in a local park every morning with friends and one bring her Jack Russel. When the dog is on a leash she is so protective of her master . She'll growl and bark at the biggest dogs without any fear! It's a disaster when she sees a squirrel, however, as she pulls so hard on her leash my friend almost falls over!

  29. Abe - My Jack is such a nice gal. And, I know when she is gone I will have to get another. She is a great companion. We didn't even own a tractor when my husband started the fence project, but we do now!

    Banjo - I have a friend with two Jacks and my dad has one. I have had other Jack owners tell me that they were the best dogs they ever owned. Mine is rather bossy. All big dog in a little body. But, a great friend.

  30. How fun that he let you tag along! ;-) Great action shots!

  31. Little dogs are so neat. They are not small in their minds at all and will try and take on anything. I like the little look she was giving you.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Looks like she's telling you that you are taking pics of her favorite dog bone burying spot. And now she'll have to find another because you've just shown the whole world where it is. LOL

  33. Your girl is precious. We have a male JR named Buster Brown, or Buster Henry Brown when I'm mad at him. He is king of the property in his own mind. Very protective, almost to a fault. Great around our chickens, much to my surprise! Gives them a wide berth. Especially the roosters, who jump him if he gets too close. He loves to go fishing with my husband and sits in the boat like he's in charge. But we have to keep him in his pen when we have company because he flunked his obedience training. DH calls him the Jack Russell Terrorist. If he sees you watching him when he's off to bury something he gives you the eye too! It's funny to watch him. Sometimes I think he's counting the steps and sniffing the directions so he remembers just where his prizes are hidden.
