My First Rat

I'm so proud. I got me my first rat last week! Can you believe that I've had to remind mom to write this brag for me! She is so quick to brag about my sisters (boring), but this is far bigger and better than anything they've done!

Mom says I actually directly harm the rat, but I beg to differ. I found this rat out in the back shed a couple of weeks ago and I never let him get any peace. It didn't take long, but I cornerd this rat in the utility shelf and I stayed there as long as mom would let me. Sometimes she'd get me to come in for dinner, but I resisted as long as I could! I tried to bark at the rat, but mom makes me wear this darn collar that stops me from barking all the time--that's mean of her cuz I think I have a nice bark if do say so myself. Mom actually calls it an annoying yap, but what does she know!

Anyway, MY rat died cuz mom says I stressed it to death. She also says that Jack Russells should know how to kill rats, but somehow I didn't get the instincts for killing or something like that. But she still said I still killed it by being persistent. Yup, that's me, I'm persistent and I tried never to let this rat have a free moment. I wanted mom to leave the rat in the shed so I could visit him but, can you believe it, she scooped him up in that pooper scooper she has (can you believe that she scoops up our poop everyday and saves it in a bin--she must have a poop fetish) and she dumped MY rat in that poop pile. How rude can you get!!!! Anyway, I'm very proud of my rat and mom says she's very proud of me too.
