Regular readers might remember our small Jack Russell, the Jackal.
Jack is small, cute, and a dog of strange tastes! After a conversation the other day with Meeks, I though these strange tastes worthy of their own post.
Jack is a normal dog who is perfectly capable of destroying any cut of meat given the chance, although it appears her favourite food might well be more of the vegetarian persuasion.
When I am preparing dinner Jack will sit by my feet waiting for a stray bit of salad or veg to come her way. If nothing falls in good time the growling hints begin.
If the growliness is ignored soon it will become the odd bark and a none too gentle nose jabbed into my calf.
Carrot, capsicum and tomato seem to be her favourite, although there is very little she turns her nose up at. I think the only thing I have seen rejected are bean ends. Cauliflower and broccoli stalks are eagerly sought, as are apple and lettuce leaves.
This is very convenient, as the chooks are not interested in lettuce. If I take any up to them it is a mournful Jack left sitting at the back door seeing her snack making an escape.
I have to admit, if I take any bits to the chooks that Jack might like I actually sneak them out in a container so she won’t know. I can see she is already planning some sort of horrible end for our feathered friends and I don’t want to give her anything to hold a grudge about!
After reading this article from 1937 I am pretty pleased that Jack doesn’t have a love for late night, under-bed snacks of onions and eggs! Imagine the aftermath of that…. ick….
