Do Terriers ever stop stealing cellphones?

We rescued a terrier mix 2 years ago. Love him a lot. He keeps me busy. We will replace my husband's mangled phone #2 when it stops working.

3. I don't know about terriers, but let me tell you about mutts -

it's been 8 years and cell phones, reading glasses, and alarm clocks still have to be hidden with extreme diligence or their inner monsters shall be savaged by my guard mutts (border collie / black lab mixes - litter mates). I love my little Imps of Satan, but it does become annoying at times.

4. Oh my gosh- I wish I could find my lounge post from 18 years ago or so-

I picked up a little terrier mix- mostly jack- but, now we think she was a Teddy Roosevelt Terrier. She was found running down I-40 in NC. She was a terror! Holy crap- she stole my husband's sandwich, and hid under the couch growling at him. Insisted that the cat was "hers" to boss around (that ended up not working- Stink set her straight) ....took over the furniture.....

I posted in the Lounge asking on tips to deal with her. Someone wrote, "Take her to Jack Russell Terrier Rescue." I replied, "I'll take Michael (JanMichael) to Husband Rescue first!"

I miss her so much- we had to put her to sleep this summer. I still cry. She was so bossy that we bought her a condo in the mountains so she could vacation with her.

Terriers are the best--Bossy, demanding, sometimes overbearing. I would do anything to have Scout back.
