Happy Birthday, Jack!

Today is our little man's 3rd birthday!

Brad and I got Jack on March 22, 2008 from a pet rescue adoption event. I didn't really want a male dog because I had never had one before, but Brad talked me into it. I'm glad that he did.

I've never met a dog with so much personality.

Jack will respond to the following words and phrases: Do you want to eat? Do you need to go outside? Walk? Go? Go to bed? Where's your toy? Where's daddy? Where's momma? {Yes, we are
those people
that refer to ourselves as daddy and momma/mommy to our dog.} Go for a ride? Treat. Sit. Stay. Lay. Down. Roll over. Spin. Off. Up. Enough. Wait. Kennel. Peyton. {His best friend}

When Brad has class and doesn't get home until 8 or 9 at night Jack is on edge the whole evening-- every little sound makes him bark. It drives me nuts. When Brad finally gets home and settles in on the couch with me to watch some TV before bed Jack will immediately jump up and lay length-wise on both of our laps and fall asleep. It's like all is right in his world when Brad and I are together.

We love Jack to pieces and couldn't imagine not having him in our lives.

One of the most enduring friendships in history — dogs and their people, people and their dogs.
