My precious pets are very pampered at my house. We even have one dog who doesn't even know that she is a d-o-g, but that is another story. Featured here today is my adorable little Jack Russell Terrier, Sissy (well, not really little ~ took her in to the vet to have her toenails trimmed yesterday & she weighed in at 18.5 lbs!) She was the product of a broken home ~ I inherited her when my daughter got divorced. She is 8 yrs. old now & such a love. Have you ever seen the Bissell carpet cleaner commercial where the little JRT is bouncing around non-stop & the home owner says, "My vet says he'll settle down after he turns 7"? Well, we are still waiting.......She is by far the most intelligent dog I've ever had, is fiercely protective of me, & absolutely loves playing ball ALL the TIME!! My dear father built her shabby chic designer bed for her about three Christmases ago. He lost his courageous battle with cancer on March 1st, so I'm especially proud of this little bed. He & Sissy were best buds. I often told him she sleeps in a prettier bed than I do! His creation led me to enter Sissy in HGTV's Most Pampered Pets contest last August 2006 & she won one of the top 10 spots, so she is a celebrity of sorts! And it made my daddy very proud that he was a part of it! Click on the above link to see all the adorable winners.
