Since Wishbone has made Jack Russell Terriers as famous as they are, it's only fitting that he should be my hero and idol.  Someday I hope to be as famous as Wishbone, maybe with my own TV show.  Well, at least I hope to be in commercials one day, but Mommy says I have to learn more tricks and to behave better - what's a puppy to do??

Well, here are some Wishbone items.  If it makes you feel better, you can cross out all the "Wishbone"s and write "Cozmo" instead!!!
