Nature or Nurture?

Within the World of the Jack Russells, I am interested to see what will happen with Daisy's character. Her role model is an AlphaMale, super cunning pooch called Dexter. But she seems predominantly fun loving and not concerned with protecting the 'pack'. Until this morning.

After taking Dexter for a walk, I returned home, put my key in the door and a little bark greeted me at the top of the stairs. I am convinced she has learnt this from Dexter who consistantly feels the need to protect the pack from passing shadows at the door, and his evil nemesis the 'Postman' (who is actually a charming artist called Joseph Dunmore, and rather tolerant of Dexter's nonsense).

Daisy - house protector! (little woof!).

Daisy has broken through

Daisy has been working her magic on Dexter. Dexter hasn't been totally convinced of Daisy, they play together, but he still looks at me asking 'why?.

It's taken a week, but they have gone from this...

To this...

Daisy Hurricane

Progress is going good in the Land of Jack Russells. The first day, Daisy could
climb 4 stairs. 2nd day she climbed all the stairs. (Below - Here she is at the top of the garden). Now she can throw herself down all the stairs, and fly off the sofa's arms (falling with style). Hurricane Daisy!!!
