A Jack Russell Fail

Now at Cruft's famous show down in London,
They have Lakelands that aren't worth the name,

If you showed em a fox or an otter
They would fly for their lives without shame.

They're not built to creep or do battle,
But to sit on a chair in the house,

And they do say that one recent champion
Was chased down the road by a mouse!
-  from The Terrier Song ...

Abbott and Bridget are heartily embarrassed by this pup. When they asked me when the heck is wrong with the bugger, as they don't understand what has happened, I told them he had been corrupted by humans and not been given a good upbringing by his natural parents. They are still very disgusted and have left the room.

Debi and the very upset TX JRTs.

The old pirate Tangent is thoroughly disgusted by this shiftless youth as well. I have it on good authority that Tangent dispatched a small rodent in his outdoor territory last week. Rodent types should know that despite his lengthy naps in the sun, complete absence of teeth, cataracts, and old pelvic injury, he is not to be trifled with.

I beg to differ. I like a thinking dog, and I believe this terrier recognized yon duckling as "not vermin", and therefore chose the lover-not-fighter approach. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!
