meet Jack





As if life wasn't mad enough already, we have decided to make it madder still.... meet Jack, our newest family member. He is still too young to come to live with us but in just over two weeks we'll be taking him home.

Jack is Jack Russell terrier. It may not be the most imaginative name but we like it all the same. Funny enough, the puppy's current custodians have been calling him Jack, too.

I am not sure who is most exited but James and Sam are definitely in the running for the title. Sam has been studying books about puppies and puppy training and is probably best prepared, although of course his knowledge is rather theoretical. Having said that, he has been walking his dog friend Meg for well over a year now. James has been practicing his dog training skills with Jack's mother. Richard owned dogs before and has some experience with looking after one. I am good at cleaning up poop. Altogether, I think we'll do just fine. I just hope the cats won't move out!

Thank you all for stopping by and for writing lovely comments, I really love to hear from you. Have you got any nice plans for the weekend? We are going camping with friends! It is the last camping trip of the year and it can get quite chilly at night but I am ready, I spent some time gathering blankets, hot water bottles and warm base layers. 

May the good weather return! Cx

  2. Jack is soooooo adorable!!! And he is one lucky fellow to live in a home with little people and lots of love. I think he will be so much fun to have and before you know it you won't remember what it was like without him.
    Hugs and congrats,

  4. Sitting here with feet up and dog is lying on my legs. I wasn't at all keen on becoming a dog owner and I have no regrets. He looks really lovely. Have a good weekend!

  5. I think every child needs to know the love of a dog, and I'm sure Jack has found just the perfect family for him.
    Enjoy your weekend camping ... I've a feeling we'll still be painting!
    Two top coats to go and team enthusiasm is waning.

  7. Such a sweet face! I'm still in the 'how to convince my husband' stage... no hope of convincing him soon though (we're expecting...). Anyway, at least I can look forward to reading about Jack on your blog! :-) Have a lovely weekend camping!

  11. I love my dog, and can't imagine life without her now. And I have just let the most adorable Labrador puppy called Chilli this morning. I think I have puppy envy. Jack looks adorable. He will bring much fun into the house. Enjoy your camping trip. We may go away this weekend. We have been forecast good weather. Our last trip before the van goes back to the barn.

  13. Oh my word, Jack is just THE cutest puppy ever! Give him a big cuddle from me next time you visit him please :-)
    I love the little pup stage watching them discover the world... our two are 4 years old already but still think they are pups!
    Happy camping and hope the sun shines for you,
    xx

  14. He will definitely add excitement (and poop) to your life! As with kids, the cute puppy years (months in their case), fly by. We have a bit of dog experience and one of the best things we have found are Kongs, which we fill with a spoonful of peanut butter. Keeps the dogs happy and out of trouble.

  15. Oh my goodness. He is adorable! Puppies are wonderful, they're a lot of work but a lot of fun too. Sort of like human babies! :) Enjoy your camping trip.

  18. What a cutie. My daughter has a Jack Russell puppy which is three months old now and great fun. He isn't overly good (or bad) but is already much better behaved and more obedient than our Fox Terrier. I'm sure Jack will be a great part of the family.

  25. I was sure I'd already commented.... but how cute is he?? Adorable!

  26. Oh, Christina - he's so adorable! He really is. I love Jack Russells and I'm sure you'll never regret this decision, he'll reward you with much love. I hope your camping trip was fun. We've been having some gloriously mild and sunny weather in Yorkshire lately, I hope you have too. x

  27. He is adorable, and at that delightful quiet cuddly stage ... but give him a few more weeks and he'll have you all running around after him! Life with a dog, or two (or six in my case!) is always better, but then clearly I would say that as I'm obviously biased. You're going to have so much fun with him x

  28. Jack is gorgeous! We have a Jack Russell terrior - rescued from a dog home about 10 years ago. She's a terror of a terrier but so friendly and cute. She's called Nonem. Strange name. My husband picked it. Enough said.
