Jack's Back

Well, not really... at least not until the 24 movie comes out.  But, today's Dogs on Thursday is all about a 7-month old, 30-something pound tyke named Jack.

Jack was adopted by a loving family from NH, however they were out of town and unable to meet the transport on Saturday morning.  Jack needed someone to pick him up and give him a place to crash for the night...

Since we have quite the full house, these 1 - 2 day temporary fosters for dogs who've already been adopted work out quite perfectly for us!  We get to spoil play with a houseguest for a little while and because they already have a forever home, we know we can't keep them!  This works out especially well with puppies... because you know how easy it is to want to keep a puppy, right?

Isn't he the cutest little guy?  I think of him as Mini TutLo... a combination of Teutul and Lola.  I think Lola was even trying to mother him some...

Jack had a grand time with the Lapdogs bazillion toys.  He kept bringing them over to this bed in the living room.  By Sunday morning he had quite the little stash going.  Antler chews were his favorite!

Jack & Zeus, buds!  Jack also liked to sleep in Zeus' "bat cave" in our bedroom.

Self portrait time for Jack & I.  I love the look he's giving me in the first one... "Hello there, you crazy dog lady!"  Can you spot Mr. Nosey in the second one?

He definitely had that go-go-go and then crash puppy personality, which worked out quite well with our lazy bunch!

We've heard from Jack's new Mom every day since Sunday and he is doing amazing!  He will be starting obedience training on Monday... big steps for a cute little boy who was abandoned and only came into rescue about 3 weeks ago!  We miss the pitter-patter of his little feet but know he's with the right family and were so happy to have spent a short time with him!

If you didn't catch my post yesterday, some dear friends of ours had to send their beloved Stratton over the Rainbow Bridge.  Stratton was a fixture in Matt's kart racing career, as he's always been the "track mascot."  He turned 13 on Monday and went over the Bridge to find his sister Briggs on Tuesday night.  He touched many lives and will be missed by all.  I dug up this photo of the big guy hanging out with me in our pit (I told you he knew where to come for treats and scratchies)...

The cutest little guy! If you didn't label your pictures I wouldn't have known he wasn't one of yours as a puppy.

I'm glad that Jack has a lovely forever home and that you got to enjoy him for a minute or two. g

What a nice little houseguest! It's great that he had a forever home waiting for him while you got to get some puppy love!

How nice, that you give these cute these a temporary home. I would have a hard time letting them go. They are all so cute, I lov ethe shots of them snuggling.

Hi, I'm Jack's new mom! He is doing so well. Great progress every single day overcoming his timidness. Life is much quieter here than with the 4 dogs he lived with down south for 3 weeks and Nichole's bunch. But he seems happy! Within an hour of being in our home he was curled up on my bed! Yes he is a beauty!
