Meet the Hoonds...

...a couple of recent pics of my niece's little fur balls.

Kristy (Mrs Elmo) posted some new photos on her blog and these were amongst them.

How could anyone not love this little chap.
Russel was a rescue dog - his previous owners couldn't afford to keep two dogs any longer so he became a member of our family. Despite being a 'wee' little chappie he took to protecting Kristy right from the start and was soon well settled in. It used to amaze me how he could hear me arrive at my sister's house when he was upstairs and he would almost launch himself into mid air before he was even halfway down the staircase.
Russell does love his chews.

When Kristy & Dan got their first married quarters Russell was in his element - he was king of the castle and certainly made himelf at home straight away. Unfortunately this didn't last long and it was clear that he missed his playmate (my sisters cat) so they decided to get him a 'brother'.

Jack was obtained from their local Dogs Trust. Whilst this organisation may do a lot of good the branch near Catterick turned out to not be a good representative. Their animals were not well cared for and details of the animals they had on offer was sketchy and in many cases very wrong. Jack was not in the best of conditions when they got him and although they were told he was fully house trained - he wasn't. They had a lot of problems with him to start with but Russell loves him and they get on really well. Considering they are both Jack Russells they look so very different.
The look on Jack's face here is a picture in itself.

They are both lovely little dogs but I will continue to have that soft spot for Russell as he was part of the family first. He also decided right from the start that my car was his LOL you never had to ask twice for him to get in the car...the back seat was all his and he was never a bit of trouble as long as you didn't clutter 'his' seat with any bags of shopping LOL

So now you have met both of the hoondies. Cuties aren't they....................

Russell is absolutely adorable and sounds like such a character! It's good that he and Jack get along well. They must be a handful at times! LOL

Aaaaw, they are both such cuties, a friend had jack russels and she said they were notoriously bad to train as they really do have little minds of their own!!
