Canine Quotes...

"The great thing about a dog is that you make a fool of yourself with him, and not only will he not scold you, but he will make a fool of himself too."

Patch on the prowl...

There was a little Jack Russell
He was full of life and bustle
His name was Scallywag Patch
He was ever so hard to catch

He would run around and play
Hunting squirrels & mice all day

By the time he came in at night
He would be tired, dirty, an awful sight.

After being cleaned up and ready for bed, He turned into a loveable snuggle bum,
As he would snuggle up next to your head, In the morning he was last to rise, Setting on Dad's lap waiting for his kiss good-byes

I could go on forever about the sweet things he'd do
About all the trouble he could get into too, How he could make us dreadfully sad, then turn it around to make us extremely glad

On June 21st  two thousand and one, Our dear little Patch went for his last run, I wish I could say he had a noble demise, Ganged up on by squirrels that took him by surprise

However he was hit by a speeding truck, In his very own yard what terrible luck
Now we must say our tearful good-byes, It's the hardest farewell, I tell you no lies
We find it so hard to get through the day, Everything reminds us of Patch in some way.

Parson Russell Terrier

(copyright CKC)

Origin & Purpose - The Parson Russell Terrier is a working variant of the fox terrier. The breed personifies the type preferred and developed by Reverend John
Russell, an avid fox hunter from the county Devon, England, during the  nineteenth century. The dog was developed to “run with horse and hound” so that when the hounds drove a fox to ground the terrier
followed, baying to bolt his quarry to the surface so the chase could continue. The breed remained popular with hunters and horsemen
throughout the 20th century and in January of 1990, it was recognized in England by The Kennel Club.
