I came across this on a Jane Austen site I frequent. The blogger just lost her mixed terrier Cody. The post is very interesting and the comments people have left are wonderful as well. There are a lot of us out there who have fallen in love with those crazy, wonderful furry friends of ours. The world wouldn't be the same without them.

Thats so interesting and soo sad about Cody...most of us have been there and know how heartbreaking it is.. soft kisses blown to Cody and our thoughts with his mum,I love to read about the dogs in a world gone by..when they were used to keep vermin at bay..having said that we used to do the ratting at the farm with Eric Ellie and Emma,Emma and Eric were profound ratters and as quick as a flash getting them,...inexperienced dogs as youngsters ..they only need to get one nip from a rat and one flick in the dogs jaws and  all others are doomed!,we have many old books on dogs here and all those sadly who lost their lives during the wars when used to help their countries...Thank you for sharing...Hugs Annie and Gang xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Sending warmest thoughts to Cody at RB. Terriers have come a long way since they were first introduced--lucky for us who have made them a part of our loving families. Funny, it doesn't matter how much time passes, they still retain that instinct to hunt and rid the earth of any vermin (in Emmie's case, chippies and squirrels! LOL)
Love, Deb, Emmie, and Angel Kelsie
