Maddie as a Baby

Maddie as a Baby

I am the owner of a house where I live with my three Jacks. Madigan (Maddie) is the mom of Kyzer, and Lizzie. Her third pup, Seamus, died last year of parvo. Anyway, Maddie has a great deal of obsessive-compulsive behavior, as do many terriers. While she is now about 4 years old, it's only been the past 2 years that her thievery has gotten so bad I need to constantly be on guard. She, poor thing, seems compelled to steal, and then hoard her prize. What does she steal, you might wonder. What doesn't she steal, I might respond. She has been known to take contact lens cases and hearing aids: her most expensive takes. She has a penchant for shiny things: jewelry, chip bags, etc. If she can get to a stuffed animal that belongs to her son, Kyzer, she'll run off with it and quickly kill and gut it. Where does she take these treasures, you might ask. Right now, she has a main stash under my bed and a secondary stash under an end table in the living room. She knows if you tamper with it, or remove objects. She'll go under, and come back out with a look of stunned frustration. I can almost hear her saying, "How could you?" And does she have style. She holds her head high as she makes off with a cherished item. She is a sweetie just a compulsive stealer. I love her anyway!!!

Maddie is beautiful but needs exercise
by: LC

Maddie is beautiful I don't know of any JRT that is ugly they are so darling. But JRT's I know I have a boy his name is Listo and he is 8 years old. Need to be exercised a lot their problem is they are very intelligent and get bored. I know when we moved Listo no longer had the pool and he misses it. JRTs are great swimmers and its great exercise as well as the daily walk. If weather is bad train Maddie to go walking on a treadmill. I bought one for Listo and he uses it and loves it. If you watch Caesar Milan's show on National Geo he said dogs need exercise, discipline (no hitting or physical abuse) and love. I just bought his DVD you might want to get it. Best wishes to you and your beautiful JRTS.

What a cute story. Isn't it funny how jacks have such personality. Ours love to go through purses. If one is left on the floor he especially loves lip gloss and lip stick! Thanks for sharing the great pic & story.
