A convert?

It is an unfortunate but true fact (and in no way fake news) that some human beings are not 'dog people'.

This does not necessarily mean they are bad people.

Maybe they had bad experiences when young. Or perhaps in some, an innate fear of wolves is hard wired from pre-historic times.

Or could it simply be that they have not yet had the pleasure of spending time in the company of a certain Bouncing wire-haired fox terrier?

I only ask because a couple of days ago Gail received this very nice thank you card from one of our recent American visitors.

I hope you can read what it says inside.  I'll just show you the first - and obviously most important - bit.
Gail, where is my Gold Star and my lamb bone treat?


  1. Ya definitely deserve an extra lamb bone (or TWO) for dat!

  2. Hari OM, who was getting the 'compliment' - you or the trainer??? Just askin'... &*>

    Seriously though Bertie, you are a true ambassadog, no matter what those Scottish Tour folks thought!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
    (who is heading off just now for a bit of an adventure...)

  3. Well done Bertie, you've done a good job in furthering the cause of all doggies everywhere ! You certainly deserve several lamb bones at the very least.
    Imagine, there are people out there who don't like doggies at all - well, they haven't met us have they?

  4. 🤗🤗‼️👏🏻well done Bertie! Well done indeed! Your bouncy self single pawed converted a 2 legger to lover Of WFT. One human at a time is all we can do. Speaking of foxes...when mom raised the shade at 6:00am today there was a fox walking up our neighbor's driveway. Exciting as it was mom is a bit concerned as foxes are rarely seen in the day so she is worried it might be rabid. Which unfortunately Many many foxes fall victim to here.
