Our latest rescue and newest addition to our family. Meet Digger. An all around true JRT full of spunk and energy. We aquired Digger on March 4th from a foster parent who rescued him from a no kill shelter. A wonderful little guy and great companion for Petey and even the siamese cat has taken a liking to him.
Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together…. Author unknown…
Rescued Petey from the Animal Shelter in May 2010. Petey definitley has a personality of his own. Our Vet estiamtes his age at just shy of one year. This dog should be named bullet given his speed and he has tremendous leaping ability. Watch out squirrels this dog is not only fast but smart! He’s not a Romeo nor is he like Annie. Petey is a sweet dog but full of mischief
Annie is cetainly one feisty JRT and she doesn’t tolerate other dogs that cross her path. She is also very resialiant Old lady at 14 and has been throguh a lot in her years. She has lost much of her teeth and one eye as result of being infected simulataneously with lyme disease Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. She has recovered and adapted well however and is still going strong. Annie still enjoys walking around the town and whenever she can still gives the bigger dogs on her block a hard time.
