Our Little Odie

When we got Odie it was the classic story of myself, going along with a friend who was looking to home a puppy and me taking one home instead! As I stood there this little 8 week old, tiny tan and white pup kissed my ankle, I looked up and it was total love at first sight!
I remember her sitting on my Jacket in the car on the way home and thinking "It's a lovely, sunny day - I'll call her Sunny" ..But when I took her home, I popped her into the kitchen and soon as my then 2 year old daughter saw her she yelled "Oh Mummy look! It's Odie!!!" And that is how she got her name.
Odie was our 2nd Jack, our first, Pippa, from many years before was not quite a full Jack Russell, being red in colouring and looking like a fox but she was stolen from our back garden in London and never seen or heard of again.
Back to Odie.. From the second she gained her confidence in our home (About 30 seconds after she arrived) Odie was a true delight, this little pup loved everybody, except men. Odie was easy-peasy to train, very obedient. Totally fantastic with my 3 children then aged 11, 5 and 2. I find that all Jacks seem to have the same personality and although you do get the odd elderly grump these are few and far between. I would totally recommend a Jack Russell to anyone with a family as long as you have the time for them. They are not demanding but they do like company, thankfully there is always someone home at my house!
