My whole life I have wanted a dog of my own. Having children and working kept me too busy, I didn't think it would be fair to the pooch. At 40, I was done with work, my children had grown and I finally started looking.
I had a list of dogs I was interested in, and a Jack Russel was not on that list.
One look at this little fella and I fell head over paws in love!! I took him home that night and here is picture of him passed out on my legs after playing around on the floor together.
I named him Ryder, he is almost 2 now. He is the love of my life!!
