Confessions of a Jack Russell!

Confessions of a Jack Russell!

If you believe it, it’s Cruz here. After Natbee’s design launch, I am back with the confessions of a Jack Russell post! There are many of you that admire my beauty and send us various questions on Instagram, so I decided to write a few things here to help you out in case you would like to get a Jack Russell too, which -let’s be honest- will not be half as good as me, but hope dies last, don’t they (humans) say!

Confessions of a Jack Russell

So here goes nothing – CONFESSIONS OF A JACK RUSSELL::

-It is easy to tell who is the boss in this house. At first I thought it was daddy, but not anymore!

-There is an hierarchy among the members of my pack and that goes as follows:: ME, daddy, and that brunette girl (I think her name is Anastasia), who daddy insists I call her mum. She, particularly, is waaaay beneath my league. She is a female and has a high pinched voice, need I say more?

-Unlike the popular opinion I am twice the size (in spirit) of most of the dogs in the neighbourhood and Mikey the Rottweiller, all together. Humans insist that I am not but I told them to have their eyes checked.

-I like driving daddy’s car. Anytime the female is not in the car I jump (literally) on the opportunity and have my paws on the wheel, helping daddy to get us quicker in the destination.

-I am a human in heart, and in reality, oh wait, actually I AM A HUMAN!

-I like throwing tennis balls to daddy and challenge him to chase me back to get them.

-I am bilingual, so who’s the clever one now, eh?

-I have a big attitude, if you have dinner and do not give me a nibble of whatever you are eating I will make funny, alien sounds to make my presence distinctive in the room, in case you haven’t already seen me jumping around like a spring.

-Speaking of which, there is nothing funnier than jumping (three times higher than my height) straight onto the female’s legs when she is wearing tights and tearing them apart. I love it. Apparently she doesn’t but who cares anyway.

-When the female asks me to be her assistant for the day and takes me in the office I sleep for most of the part and fart to embarrass her. It works!

-I like stealing her clothes and hiding them under the bed. Also, I ADORE chewing on her knitted pieces of clothing. There is something about them that makes me want to destroy them i-n-s-t-a-n-t-l-y.

-When we go on forest walks, I always have to walk in front- someone has to show them who is the boss. Also someone has to sniff every single corner of the pathway up to 10 miles away, to make sure things are safe before the humans proceed with their walk.

-It’s a tough job being a Jack Russell. You have to nap at least 16 hours per day and night, and also eat whatever the humans feed you and the treats. Worst part? You cannot use the bathroom and you have to wait for them to come back and get you in the garden….

-…unless of course if the female maps the floor and I want to annoy her and leave my scent around, on this occasion and only, I will forget the rules and pee in the corners to remind her who’s setting the rules here.

-The very essence of any house in the world is to have a Jack Russell to make the human days better. And I have fully succeeded on this!

Until next time folks!
