I love my dog. Dee, Defender of the Wall, Slayer of Squirrels, Scourge of the Yard and Licker of Faces loves me back.
She is a 10-year-old Jack Russel terrier. I got her from a breeder in Church Point in October of 2005. When I visited the breeder, we walked out to the dog yard. We whistled for the puppies and Dee crawled out from under the dog house and was the first one who came to me. That’s how she chose me. She is a very clever dog. She does agility, she fetches the frisbee. She rides in the truck. But her most intelligent feat? Over the course of ten years, she waged a silent war of attrition and finally convinced us that she should sleep in the bed with me and my wife.
My grandfather always like to have a good squirrel dog. His dogs were inevitably named Blackie, Brownie or Queenie. Dee is a good squirrel dog. She doesn’t like for squirrels to come into her yard. I think Dee is the reason we can have tomatoes in our garden because the squirrels are too afraid of her.
