September 12th 2010

April 1st 2007

Running, swimming, chasing rabbits, digging, fetch, licking himself

Not getting his own way, pushy male dogs, me giving attention to any other living creature, intruders on his property

Favorite Toy:
Ball! Ball-ball-ball!

Favorite Food:
Prey model raw, people food

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere he can both run and swim

Best Tricks:
Sit, drop, shake hands, speak, bring it

Arrival Story:
Jackson is pretty laid back for a kelpie... As long as he gets a good walk/run/swim daily he doesn't bug me too much. He is a retired farm dog now leading a disgustingly easy life... So much for that classic Aussie work ethic, eh? He digs holes and then barks at them and gets confused licking himself... A great mind at work! He's a good natured fellow though, who apart from wanting to fight with every bully breed male twice his size, has a pretty easy going nature. At 48 lbs Jackson Tan is a very large male for his breed. He is a lovely looking dog (if I don't say so myself), well proportioned and handsome. He has a soft nature and responds best to a firm yet fair approach. He lives to please but at the same time is easily distracted (oh, a bird, butterfly, pile of dirt etc.) but with training is becoming a wonderfully handler orientated dog. He has bloomed beautifully from a anxious, abused dog info a wonderful companion.

I got this off my friend Rocky's diary, everyone join in!

What colour is your collar?

Right now I am wearing a black navajo print with red, green and yellow! I also have my fave Rogz collar which is black with multi colour paw prints. And I always wear my red love heart tag which is a bit girly for me but my mum insists ...

What kind of food do you eat?

I mainly eat beef and chicken, it's yummy! I also sometimes get lamb, pork, sardines, kibble, people food and wet food. I love to eat! Sometimes I even eat daddy's cheese.

What are your favourite treats?

I love cheese and kibble! And bacon yuuuum ... I also love eating daddy's computer cables.

Do you have a valentine or significant other?

I like all women. ;)

Do you get table scraps?

Yes everyday! Especially from daddy! He gives me toast every morning!

What is your favourite toy?

My squashy football daddy got me from a computer fair! But I killed it. :( Mummy says she will get me a better one. I also love my tennis balls and like to pop them, and my ball that feeds me!

When is your birthday?

Mummy didn't know so she made it April 1st, April fools day, coz I'm a bit of a fool!

How many times a day do you eat?

Twice a day and snacks of course! Mum says I'm getting a bit chunky though and I will have to work it off this summer!
