Laura Writes of Minnie
She is an absolute joy. She was very young when we got her, only 6 weeks and she was tiny. It is the first time we've ever had a small dog, normally having bearded collies, German shepherds and also spaniels. She has a little brother called teddy who is a beardie and only a couple months younger than her but she is definitely the baby of the family!
She's incredibly smart and very tactical as well, sneaking up on teddy and stealing whatever he has from him (even if she already has one of her own, such as a toy, or bone). She adores going for walks (we tried to call them leg-stretches to stop her getting too excited but she knows this word now too!) and runs like the wind... We now have to be careful as she disappears under fences into fields she shouldn't be in and she does not come back, she knows when she has been naughty!!
We visit my grandparents a lot and she knows where she is as soon as we pull up, we only have to open the door and she runs off into the house to say hello.
She is a wonderful mix of both breeds, you can see the terrier in her when she is "killing" a toy or if shes on the scent during her walks, she is very independent, but also loves people and has the waggiest tail I have ever seen!!
She will jump up and stand on her back legs when she wants picking up for a hug, or sometimes she likes a little carry during her walks if its quite cold or wet. She also loves watching television, we've caught her glued to the set a few times! She enjoys the film "Evan Almighty" and I think she also has a little crush on the jack russell "Eddie" in "Fraiser", as she runs to the screen every time he is on it
