Red Delicious Dave

Introducing Dave, (aka Crappy Dave) our rescue terrier mix. He took up residence in this apple box when I came back with a big Costco haul a few months back. We put a big stuffed bear and a blanket in and he's in heaven in this thing, <3

He kind of looks like my Lucy. If he has the same personality, you're in for a fun and quirky ride. Gotta love those Terriers, huh?

They DO look alike! These two need to get together! :-D We've had Dave for a few years and got him on his last day, at his third and final shelter. <3
He has a sweet, kind of submissive personality. He was found on the streets at nine months old, the poor baby. I often wonder if his submissive nature stems from that.

Oh, wow...they have almost the exact same history!

Lucy was also found on the street, and she had already had a litter. They said she was about 6 months old but the math doesn't add up. I think she was probably around 10 months old. She was taken to the shelter where she flunked her temperament test twice, (she bit the evaluator both times. ). The rescue that took her got her about 5 minutes before she was to be euthanized.

Lucy is the complete opposite of submissive. She totally bosses Chance around and never lets him forget who's in charge. She even lifts her leg to urinate...Chance still squats, (he's 8). I've had her almost 5 years and she comes up with new quirky behaviors all the time.

She only weighs 8 lbs., but she sure as he** rules the roost. My sig picture of her is the total opposite of her personality...she ripped that ribbon out of her hair within a few seconds of me taking that picture.

Could you post more pictures of Dave? I'd really like to see them...

This picture pretty much sums up Lucy's personality, (she hoards socks):

Awwwww...love the pictures. His eyes are a really pretty color. Dave and Lucy actually do look a lot alike.

Does Dave ever sleep on the bigger dogs? Lucy sleeps on Chance all the time:
