Arrival Story:
Picked out the best breeder in England, chose Flash from the next litter. He wasn't the most interested in people of all the puppies, but whenever he made his way over to me we certainly wagged his tail the fastest! I was after a "middle of the road" personality since Jack's that are too shy or two dominant can be a pain in the butt- and I got what I wanted! We have since travelled to & lived in Norway & Canada. He's a world traveller!

UPDATE: In Fall of 2007 Flash had multiple rectal prolapses. Eventually it was determined that the cause of the prolapsing was a walnut-sized tumour far up the rectum. Histopathology reported that this was a plasmacytoma (malignant). A very complex surgery was preformed to remove the tumour, and was done successfully (at great cost) in November '07. We thought we were clear as the tumour was fully and completely removed, but in January '08 I discovered a mass in his abdomen. XRay confirmed that this was cancer again, this time it had effected his lymph nodes (in the groinal area) and thus spread throughout his little body. I opted to continue with palleative care (Prednisone tablets) to keep the tumour on a slower growth rate, and pain at a minimum. Terrier trooper that he was, my wonderful Flash kept his love of life going for much longer than the vet had given him. Sadly though, his time inevitably came and he was brought to peacefully cross the Rainbow Bridge. We hope our old family dog Sugar was there to meet him and guide him into the light. We love you and miss you Flash. Rest in Peace.
