  1. Tell your human that we have glowballs. They absorb sunlight and glow in the dark so we can play fetch even at 3AM. What a wonderful invention. Mom doesn't always agree.

  2. Hmmmm...I think you have provided me with a marvelous insight!

    Having a JRT is like having a puppy with slightly better life skills. And more cunning.


  3. Believe it or not, our boychiks actually sleep through the night and we have to wake them up. Obviously we are missing so so much fun!!!


  4. What a fun read! It is life around here too :-) Happy, happy dogs who love us no matter what...
    thanks for the smiles! The videos were extra fun!


Love your comments! Love them we do. Don't be bashful! Thank you for visiting :-)
