Old Dog, New Tricks – Meet Freddie and Percy the horse-riding terriers.
You can'’t teach an old dog new tricks, or so the saying goes. But, if the story of a pair of English Jack Russell Terriers is anything to go by, it seems an old dog can teach a younger one a thing or two. For the past five years, a Jack Russell called Freddie, who lives with his owner Patricia Swinley in Gloucestershire, has regularly taken a ride on the back of a friendly Shetland pony called Daisy. When seven year old Freddie recently became friendly with a younger Jack Russell, called Percy, he was determined to share the experience with him.
