From Italy With Loff

Ciao, Laura from Italy. What do you have for us today? She says in her email, “This is Peppo my 2 year old Jack Russell Terrier.”

“…since they’re super cute!”



  1. These are beautiful pictures! I would have thought a Jack Russell would chase kittens. Peppo is one special dog!

  2. SUPER CUTE is actually an understatement. How heartwarming and squee-licious!!

  3. We so need a Marc Anthony tag.

  4. eeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Perhaps some day he will get to keep a kitty?

  6. @Kar, I’d be glad to oblige, but what IS the “Marc Anthony tag?”

  7. Brinke –

    Tag would be for any dog interacting tenderly with a smallish friend of the kitteh persuasion.

    DOO EET! 🙂

  8. Aww, so cute and sweet my teeth ache!

  9. Man, I miss having the tags listed on the side. Things like Marc Anthony, Knitted, …

  10. AWW 😀 Your dear sweet, Peppo, the 2 year old Jack Russell Terrier thinks those kittens are his babies, Laura from Italy. 😀

  11. Mary (the first) says:

    Super Cute, is right! (And I second the motion for a “Marc Anthony” tag .. )

  12. Alice Shortcake says:

    I love the tail draped casually over Peppo’s ear in the second pic!

  13. Saffron says:

    Peppo is such a sweetheart.
    What is Italian for DED? 😀

  14. Saffron–“DED” in Italian = morto. See also morta.
    Abandon all mope, ye who enter here. ;-D Who could mope when seeing such cuteness?!

  15. Saffron says:
