Story Name: Barney and the Calendar
From: Barry Jones

My Jack Russell Story:

I have a 1 1/2 year old long haired JR named Barney, who rules our harem of 3 female JR's. Two of them recently had litters (2 days apart!) by another stud dog, but that doesn't seem to faze Barney. He has "adopted" both litters, and will go right into their houses anytime the momma dogs are let out. In fact, he is so protective of the pups he has occasionally refused to let their mom's come back to see them!

Something that does faze old Barney is our Jack Russell calendar. All of the dogs on it are posed full face (for some reason, he cannot tell a dog photo taken in profile is a dog!) and he instantly took great offense at each page of the calendar. If we hold it up for him, he will bristle, bark, and jump like crazy to get those dogs out of his territory! One peculiar thing: he dislikes the JR's with brown markings more than the black and white ones.
