January 4th 2004

I love to find a carpet or a rug and roll around on it, it feels so good! I also love to jump in the shower with momma. And I cannot forget I LOVE LURE COURSING and Chasing after flies! I'm a fast little bugger, thats why mom calls me Action Jackson.

My mom's boyfriend picks on me and blows on the back of my head! Drive me bonkers, I also don't like super excited large dogs!

Favorite Toy:
Im not much of toy dog, my favorite thing to chase is flies. I even eat them, mom gets mad because bugs can carry dangerious cooties.

Favorite Food:
I love tomatoes! Wow they are good, and I love bones but another dog has to like to bone first for me to like it. I steal bones from my pals all the time.

Favorite Walk:
Balboa park is the best! I get to see all my friends and run free and fast, but when I run fast other dogs chase me down and they are big dogs and they hurt me!

Best Tricks:
I only know one trick and that is sit and stay. Mommy has tried several times to get me learn new tricks.

Arrival Story:
My name is Jackson and my mom found me on Italian Greyhound Rescue San Diego. My brother (Henry) and I were found wondering around Lake Elsnore by ourselves. My other family I don't really know what happened to them, but we were perfectly healthy dogs with all of our teeth and good grooming just a little skinny. Mommy Laura adopted me back in April of 2009 and has been a valuable aspect in my life.

I am a full blooded Italian Greyhound, but I am larger than most, thats why mom calls me Biggy Iggy. I am about 4-6 inches taller than most IG. And a whopping 20lbs instead of 12-15. I am mellow attitude, very very brave. For some reason I do not play with toys, they don't interest me. However I love to play with himself on the carpet, play with other IG's and I can spot them a mile away, especially like to lay with people on the couch mommy and her boyfriend.

Oh its cold and wet in SoCal

It's very wet and windy and that creates cold in SoCal! Jackson is doing well, though he was an older dog when I adopted him he has learned to hold himself until I come home every four hours. He is very difficult because he doesn't like chew toys or bones so he does get bored and can become distructive on my hanging blinds!!! He finally put on some winter weight probably a pound and half he was looking kinda thin though IG's are suppose to be but he is much bigger than IG, most people think he is a whippit puppy! When I first bought him a jacket, a sporty reflecting jacket he was a little oh the, "eh" side. But now that its cold I grab it from the hanger and he jumps all over the place.


Good News!!

On Saturday I wasn't feeling so well. I was tired, and lazy and hot. And then On Sunday I was throwing up and couldn't control it. Then on Monday I threw up again, mommy got really scared and took me to the doggy hospital, I was so nervous at the hospital but my mom took care of me. Then when the vet saw me they told us that I would have to spend the night a couple nights. Mommy started crying and I was scared now but she held me and held me, we were there for a really long time. Then right before I was suppose to get submitted to the hospital I threw up all over, only I was throwing up my own blood and my mom broke down crying again. They admitted me into the hospital right away. My bill was very expensive and mom might not be able to afford it. I hope I get better soon so it is less expensive. The hospital people have been really nice to me, but I want my mommy. My mom can't come see me until they tell her to take me away because I might get the wrong impression and think I am going home and hurt myself. I wish my mommy was here though I miss my couch and my best friend Kudos, thats moms best friends dog, she is kinda like my girlfriend! And mommy's boyfriend came and delivered my bed to me because mommy couldn't come in to see me she was to sad!
