Food, Food, I- want Food

I love that she is UBER excited to see my even if I only left the room for a minute.

I love that she can jump up to my arm pits.

I love that her belly and paws get really pink if she's been playing hard.

I love that she will do anything if there is the remote possibility of getting a treat.

I love her kisses.

Post Yours!

I love the ears, the personality, turning pick when tired, being attached to my hip.

I love my rat terriers because they are my best friends and because of the way they love to cuddle up with me. I love them because when I am upset, they won't leave me alone until I am holding them close to me. I love them because of all the cute little things they do...how they love to harass each other...how well they get along. I love my rat terriers because of their ears and their spots...how gentle and sweet they are....but mostly because of the unconditional love they give me.


The skinny fat- dog!

I love Mason because when he is settling down to go to sleep for the night, he makes this very contented "Mmm" sound.

He also has a very complicated stretching routine when he wakes up: Stretches 'til he is sitting up very straight, points his nose towards the sky, shakes, bows, and yawns.

Well, there are lots of other reasons too!

I have a Rat Terrier in addition to my pit bulls and 2 other pups..

She makes me laugh in the mornings when she rolls on her back with her legs straight up in the air (we call them stick legs lol)

She can say I love you when you make her sing

She the best dog of them all!! haha

She used to be able to jump and land cleanly on the edge of a hot tub..but she is now 6 and can't jump anymore :O( Not even on the bed and rarely will do it to get on the couch. The vet said nothing is wrong...she just lost her hops i guessshrug

We love Mabel because she always makes us laugh. Natural born comedian.

Also, her intelligence has gotten us interested in how dogs think. How their senses and brain work. Very neat stuff.

Hi yall, me and Baby are new here and I thought I would say hi to everyone.

I love Baby because of all the silly things she does. She is also attached to my hip, she is my second shadow.

She will also watch every move I make.

She is very warm and snuggly to sleep with and she will sleep with her legs straight up in the air too.

We live out in the country and we have wild cats all out in the woods around our house.

When I go to let her out she will fly down the steps barking like crazy and she will run up and down the edge of the woods barking at them.

She won't hurt them she just like to chase them.

Then she will run back to the steps where I am standing and stop and just smile at me.

She will sit that way till I say where's those kitty cats, then she will run all over the yard barking, its so funny to watch. big laugh

I am disabled and when I am having a very bad day she will lay there right beside and won't leave me.
