I was just laying in the shade 
near momma in the gazebo, 
when we heard a "plop".
She looked at me, I looked at her...
We turned to see what made the noise and
he plopped into my water bowl.
I proceeded to tell him He was NOT Invited.
 Well, he didn't listen. 
But I had the last laugh,
I had just drank the last of the water.

Buckingham Blitz

The Buckingham Blitz in Raymond, MN was really fun!
It was a two day Jack Russell Terrier trial.
In other words, racing and RATS!!!!
What could be more fun? *S* 
We arrived the day before and set up our "home"...
I got to play for a little bit with the other
Mid West Jack Russell Terrier Club 
doggies that I know.

Early in the day we go racing.
Then there was time for a nap
in my xpen before RAT time *S*
Finally it was RAT time...
first stop barn hunt.
Didn't take me long to sniff out that bad guy!
I see Daddy and Uncle Dale found a place to rest
while I checked out the rats.

This is the GTG (go to ground) tunnels.
I found the rat fast enough to get 3rd place 
This was something new.  Go Fur It.
 I had to run around and find an entrance to
 a tunnel that is underground. The tunnel
leads to a rat at the other end. I ran around 
till I found it. See it in that big log there?
 In and down I went. I had to go slow, 
cuz I is a big boy and the tunnel was little
and DARK.
 I found a little tunnel under there and turned.
I wasnt suppose to turn but I did. 
Big mistake. I tried to turn around but
I was too big for the tunnel and I got stuck.
I couldn't turn around, I couldn't back up.
Ummm mom....... come help me. 
I sat very still and quiet.
I knew momma was up there cuz
I could here her calling me.
So I waited. Nice and quiet. and waited.
How was I suppose to know she cant 
see me thru the ground? 
Finally after 15 minutes and 
(10 years off her life, she says) 
she dug up the tunnel and found me.
It's a great competition concept.

rodents everywhere..... ?

 Every where I sniff,
there is chipmunk smell 
or mice or rabbits
or squirrels!!!
The joys of living in the country.
Heaven for a jack russell terrier.
But aggravating too, when you can't catch 
them cuz of a dumb fence in between ya...
Then just when your frustrated enough,
along comes a tiny mouse plant....

Is mom just trying to drive me nuts?

return of IKE

remember IKE?
Ike is the cardinal that came every day for months
and months and banged on my window.
Then one day he banged so hard,
I had to pick him up and hold him.
Well, he is back. This time he is fascinated with the
side mirror and front fender of our truck.

 I hope this video works this time.
Shows IKE banging on the front fender of
our truck.
Birds are really goofy.

 to see the original movie of IKE banging on the window,

We played a game.

Goodbye, Rocky, my friend.

 From you I learned to smile.
I learned to enjoy life, no matter what.
I learned tunnels, a-frame, and teeter.
I marveled at your weaves.
I loved our walks in fairyland. 
We always had so much fun.

 You will always be my most special friend.
 Me and momma will watch over your momma.
It's nice to know you are now pain free
and running somewhere over the rainbow bridge with Chris.
