[quote=“Thelonlieste”]Had a Jack Russell that would eat just about anything: vegetables, fruits, nuts; pretty much the entire food pyramid. There were a couple of exceptions: if I threw him banana he would eat the first piece but not the second. And he wouldn’t eat organic weetbix; loved the regular stuff though.
You’ve gotta respect that.
As a joke - a joke for my benefit, not for his - I threw him a jalapeno chilly once and he ate it NO PROBLEMS. Kept begging for another and, when I threw him a second (testing what was then known as the banana hypothesis), he ate it too. And a third.
Well, I wanted some chilly on my crackers, so he didna get no more.
Gutsy little bastard.
I miss him.[/quote]
Yeah and a Jack Russell should be a gutsy bastard too or they wouldn’t deserve the name Jack Russell. I’ve never had or seen a cowardly Jack Russell but I guess in Taiwan I may come across one unfortunately one day! A Taiwanese friend of mine has one over here and it does just fine, takes well to the weather and small living spaces and their are loads of things for it to chase and kill ha!
My terriers enjoy it here and have a great time, running around in the mountains. One decided to mess with a toad and got sprayed with toxic juice ! It threw up for around 5 minutes and was fine. It now just jumps on them and gets its mouth and eyes nowhere near it! They are puzzled that some of the rats can climb trees in Taiwan ha! (black rats)
