Jack the Doofus

My boy Jack is almost a year and nine months old now, and still very much a pup at heart. I don't think I've ever had a dog that was as much of a play-boy as he is. He's always looking for something to carry around, toss, chase, or otherwise amuse himself with.

Lately, his favorite toy has been a toss-ring— a kind of frisbee with a hole in the middle. He likes to "wear" it and run around at top speed (every fourth step a leap into the air ) as if looking for a tree to run into. Fortunately he hasn't run into anything yet but he seems to keep trying. He's very proud of this toy and misses no opportunity to show me how good he is at putting it on.

I love a dog with a sense of humor. Jack qualifies.

So, you've got some of that funny weed growing around the place, do you?

Jack is nuts. And I do mean that in a very nice way! :-)

Like you say, Jack IS nuts— but in a completely good way. He is absolutely sweet tempered and his tail is going a mile-a-minute all the time. When it comes to FUN, Jack's da man!
