Jack Russell Terrorists!

I have been house sitting for Christie and Brent Remy while they have been on vacation.  For those of you who don't know, they are very involved in rescue and Jack Russells are their breed of choice.  Now, I know this is not every one's breed of choice and in the past has not been my favourite either.  However, I challenge you to spend any amount of time with Christie's dogs, and still have that opinion.  You will find that these are actually very delightful little creatures!  (Although they did chase a raccoon into the dog room where it became very angry and it was a bit of a challenge getting it out.) I love them and their scrappy little attitudes!

This is Ziggy the wonder dog, and the love of my life!  I would OWN this dog.  He is the best JRT that was ever created!

Protecting their home and hearth from their arch-nemesis:  the squirrel!

(Behind every great pack of JRT's there is a chihuahua that runs the show!)

Gali, Solitare, and Roxi sharing a good laugh!

This is a wise dog, and a very old soul.  I love him!

Me:  "Gali, do your parents allow you to sit on the dining room table?"
Gali:  "Yes, yes they do!"

Gali getting some serious air!

Tug O' War

Yes Brent, you were right.  See?!  I got the picture to prove it! 


  1. I love it!!! Too cute! Thank you can not be said enough for you taking care of my babies. Yes I know not everyone loves the JRT's but we do!!! You are awesome Emily! Christie

  2. Awww I heard you and I were going to have to argue over who got Ziggy and Marley if anything ever happened to their mommy and daddy :) I wish I had someone like you to take care of my crew too. I agree she has the best bunch of kids next to mine of course lol

    :) Andee

  3. Yes Andee, I can see us arm wrestling over Marley and Ziggy in the event that Christie perishes from the cold weather, and Brent perishes because Socks attacks him in his sleep. :) Ziggy jumped in my car tonight when I was leaving. I should have driven fast!
