Random facts tag

I've been tagged by my new pals Crikit, Sparky and Ginger and Suki the cat and also my human friend Blue to list 8 random facts about myself. Well, here goes:

1. I like to rummage in ladies handbags. This seems to be a common WFT trait. Take a look at my pal Axel's blog to see what he found recently on a handbag raid!

2. When I visit my pal Molly the Irish Terrier they have to hide all her toys in the garden shed. This is because I go on a toy-destroying mission. You can guarantee that one toy always manages to escape, usually behind the sofa. I go BERSERK trying to dig it out. And then I try and break into the shed. All in all, I'm the perfect house guest!

3. I STILL haven't worked out how to get inside my terrier tunnel bed by myself. J1 or J2 has to hold it open for me.

4. I have finally mastered the Dog Brick toy. Click here to see one of my earlier attempts.

5. I'm always trying to sneak a crafty slurp out of J2's cup of tea or coffee. Sometimes he doesn't even realise until he finds a meaty residue from my beard at the bottom of the cup. Nice!

6. I've recently decided that I prefer being carried up and down stairs by my human slaves J1 & J2. Why exert myself unnecessarily? I need to conserve my energy for destroying toys.

7. I'm named after the song "Jackson" by Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash. I like the Nancy and Lee version too. It could have been worse. J1 wanted to call me Trampas after Doug McClure in The Virginian. Luckily for me J2 protested.

8. I'm obsessed by anything made of rubber. I can track the delightful smell of rubber from a very great distance. And then I go BERSERK (again!). Notice a theme here?

If anydog hasn't done this random facts thing yet and wants to do it, please consider yourself tagged!

Love ya lots,

Hey, I love to raid other people's bags too coz I usually find treasures in them. Last time, I raid Pacco's owner's bagpack & took out a tasty sausage in a plastic bag & walked off. But my hoomans caught me in time & gave it back to her. Boohoo! I almost got to taste that fat sausage...

Love licks,

Wow, We went back and watched the dog brick episode. What a challenge. We were frustrated just watching it. What is the attraction of the dog brick? We're not familiar with it.

Hey Jackson: TY for doing my tag [blue's right I did forget]. I never do dig through handbags but I do like rubbing my face against them! I've got mommy trained by having her lift me down from places...she thinks I've got pains in my joints and it hurts to jump down. She thinks I'm old like her. TY for sending me get well wishes...puking almost all gone now. Sorry to read about your woes...mommy's waving her healing wand in your direction listen-up and believe!Hang in there!

Hello Jackson, Katie, Zorra, and Sam's mom here. After viewing your video of the dog brick, I told Santa Paws to bring them one. I hope that they can be good long enough so he will bring it to them. I'm sure that they will have to tell you about it once they receive it!
