Sally and Tess - A pencil drawing by John W Johnston

Sally and Tess

Sally, on the right, was a wonderful Jack Russell. People have told us this breed is a bit temperamental and not good with children. Well I disagree. When our daughter was born we couldn't have wished for a more loving and caring pet. One day, when my daughter was about three, a large dog came galloping playfully towards her. Sally threw herself at the dog despite it being many times larger than her. The large dog ran away confused and no harm was done, but it was very clear to us that Sally was protecting our daughter.

Tess was just as loving. Some of Tess's story is told above. She was such a fast dog because of the Whippet in her. I could call her to heel then throw a ball as high and as far as I could. She would always be there to catch it when it came down. It's terrific to be able to see them together like this ... I wonder what they would have thought of each other.
