I have been keeping a eye out for a small dog for my son, be it on the down-low... I have a lot of anti-pet people who think anybody is insane for adding responsibility on to a busy life via a non-human extra mouth. But I really feel like our house was missing something since our yellow lab passed away last summer. I mainly wanted to get a dog for my son, who I feel needs a little boost. I think he sometimes feels a little neglected in the middle of his two sisters. Well, a neighbor posted on her facebook account that she had Jack Rat puppies, they are a mix between Jack Russell Terriers and Rat Terriers. So we received our new puppy, Ranger, on Sunday and I am tickled pink with this little guy! Nights have been a little rough but so far, he has been a dream puppy. So cute and energetic.
