Walking a jack russell/rat terrier mix is not like walking a normal dog.
Kiki must protect me from every bird. She must hunt down every cat and small furry, highly mobile object that comes her way. She must sniff every pole. Pee at every mail box. Pee at every stop sign and light pole. Every stop sign is another great sniffing pole.
She must run to every street corner. Greet every stranger with her happy whimper and waving of her stumpy tail. And look at the world with the the innocence of a small child.
And that is what I love most about her. Her constant joy. Her ability to love those around her for who they are, regardless of how imperfect they are.
