The story of the "Jack" by our young handler Victoria

I have been helping out at a farm that breeds Shetland ponies. The lady was speaking to my Dad and dogs came up in conversation. She then showed us a Jack Russel bitch who was pregnant with her second litter, she was part of a deal with a trailer. The farm owner was going to wait until the puppies are all sold then find a home for the bitch (called Lady). Me and my Dad fell in love with her at once and said yes,but my mum hadn't seen her. Later,when my mum came from work we went to show her Lady. We brought Jack along to see if she was OK with him. Lady didn't mind at all that Jack wouldn't stop sniffing her bum and she was very friendly with everyone. My mum doesn't really like Jack Russel's so we didn't know how she would take to lady. My mum liked her lots so we were really excited about having lady!
Later that night my Grandad rang up, his 12 year old West Highland White Terrier bitch had died. We all loved her and she gave my Grandad lots of fun, acting like a puppy all her life. We spoke to him about Lady and hopefully he is taking her on in a few months time.
Wow Victoria what a lovely story, Lady is staying in the family and going to have a wonderful home. Next time you go to the farm do take some photos of Lady for us. Do you know when thr puppies are due?
