Missy has a second name, MissyChief.
That's because a little while after we adopted her, when she'd settled in, we saw the twinkle of mischief come back into her eye - which as terrier lovers delighted us.
We walk frequently and today we had a lovely experience. We met someone who Missy adores and this lady adores Missy.
Today, as usual she made a fuss of MissyChief then she said to me "Do you know, I hate jack russells!"
She went on to say "But I adore Missy. Jacks are usually so yappy and snappy, but not your girl. I love Missy. If she was the only jack I knew, I would have one.. She's a real credit to you"
She's come a long way from the girl we adopted from Battersea - but we always thought she had it in her.
Thank God they kept her for 2 years, whilst she waited for us.
Walking with the Chief, heads held high.
Now there's a painting I should make!
