Life on a family farm
in the wilds of
Upstate New York

Spring is springing up all around us. From parrot tulips the kids bought me last fall to Robins nesting everywhere, including places we would prefer they had left alone.
It's all good. Had a nice Mother's Day trip to Cabela's, which is where we found a toy...finally..that Mack can't destroy. At least so far. A nice lady clerk told us that she had bought one for her dog, but dogs couldn't make the squeaker in it work. Too complicated because you have to turn it on its side to activate the noisy part.
I told her I had a Jack Russell Terrier. They can do anything they want to. She said, "No, I have one too, and he can't work it". Although Mack loves noisy toys and squeaks and honks them all early and often, I did wonder why someone would be concerned about a JRT not being noisy. Anyhow......
Guess how long it took Mack to squeak it.... Yeah, half a lap around the kitchen table and it was going. He loves it and plays with it by the hour. Honky, honky, squeak, squeak, squawk.
