Gone Fishing

Ten years ago, I met my first Jack Russell, Riley, and fell in love. He belonged to a co-worker and I was lucky enough to dogsit Riley a few times when his owner went on business trips. Sadly, Riley passed away earlier this year, but at the ripe old age of 18! Last year, finally, I was able to add a Jack Russell to our family.


Buster is a Parson Russell and my best friend. He was born on Christmas Day, 2008. Buster loves swimming, boating, hiking, hunting critters, sleeping under the covers, belly rubs, riding shotgun in our golf cart, and sits patiently by the oven while peanut butter treats are baking. He wears many hats in our family: comedian, guard dog, designated squirrel chaser, exercise partner, bed warmer, and enthusiastic greeter of friends and family. In fact, Buster has been such a joyful addition to our family that we brought home his full sister, Dixie, this past September...but that's another story.

I'm so sorry to hear about Riley. I'm so glad you got Buster and Dixie now. Is that Buster in the photo? That is a magnificent photo, looks like something you could frame and hang!

Terrier Package
by: Robbin's Rescued Russells

Congratulations!! It sounds as tho you got the complete Terrier Package when Buster joined your family.

I'm sorry to hear of Riley passing away. If he lived to be eighteen that says the people that he depended on to care for him did a wonderful job throughout his entire lifetime.

Isn't it funny how Russells are like Lays potato chips? If you enjoy having one, you just know life will be twice as enjoyable with two!!!Hugs,
