Whirly is a confused Jack Russell. She is just getting into the whole adventure scene and seems to take everything in stride. While not the leader of the pack she is quite content to rack up hundreds of miles following her pack mate Dusty.
Dusty is a Rottweiler disguised as a Jack Russel cross whom is deeply in the plan to dig to china and beyond. Her latest trick is to sit with in striking distance of her food bowl and pretend to be asleep, awaiting a luckless pigeon that thinks she is not looking and will get some free food. In a snap of her jaw the pigeon is dispatch to “bluer skies” and the Dusty has a lovely fresh meal of pigeon. Sneaky little sod. Cunning, very cunning!
