This is a picture of Rodney, the Jack Russell. He has got me very well trained.

He plays the cute card far too well and far too often. He brings his ball to anyone who is seated on my sofa and then barks and pokes them with his paw till they throw it.

He sleeps on the bed - as evident in the photo - because his wee dogbed simply isn't big enough. He stands on my pillow and even in my sleep I will now just lift the covers so he can crawl in.

He sulks if I grab the car keys but not his leash, and then ignores me for a good hour after I get home. So, usually he just comes for the ride now as its just easier than dealing with an overly dramatic dog when I get home.

So yeah, he kind of rules the roost but I love him to bits.
