I am an animal lover. I have had animals my entire life and they bring me so much happiness. When searching for our first "family" dog I stumbled upon a friend of a friend who had a litter of Jack Russell puppies. I considered the idea, did some research online, and dismissed the idea. Don't get me wrong, I had always thought they were adorable dogs, but VERY tenacious. But, something inside me was drawn to this challenge and less than two weeks later we brought Maddie home. She was our first Jack Russell and I never regretted her for a minute. She was my shadow, my running buddy. She was only 1 1/2 when she passed last July. It is by far the hardest thing I have ever had to go through. I still cry...

After Maddie's death our house seemed lifeless (I will be posting her story eventually). I definitely took it the worst. We so desperately needed a little white ball of energy to warm our hearts and shed all over my couches. Although no dog would ever take Maddies place, I searched and searched for what seemed like months for a Jack Russell. They are hard to find! Then, late one night, I stumbled upon an ad online for three white female Jack Russell puppies near Norfolk. I called first thing the next morning and Sheri told me she had one left. We chatted and I told her about how we just lost Maddie. Then she told me how she lost her first Jack Russell and how heartbroken she was. She was so nice on the phone and it made me feel good to know that I wasn't the only person to go through it. After we got off the phone she texted me a couple pictures of the all white dog. I sent the pictures to Brandt, his reply was "Call Sheri and see if we can go get her tonight." That evening after work we drove to Norfolk to meet this ADORABLE little puppy and hopefully take her home.

When we pulled up to their house five (yes, five!) Jack Russell's came barrelling out of the house. I have to say that it warmed my heart to see all of them and their personalities. Then, out came Sheri with the most adorable ball of white fur I have ever seen. She handed her to Brandt and I am pretty sure my husband melted right before my eyes. It was like she had known him her entire life. I didn't need kisses. I was sold! The rest is history.

Enjoy these pictures I took this past Wednesday of Pippa (AKA: Pip Pip Cheerio!), our Jack Russell Terrier...




Enjoy this beautiful Sunday....Cheerio!
