His scratch in the morning - he stretches and rolls and stretches

Me and my husband decided to get a puppy, so we considered all the facts - we're not excersice prone, we needed a good guard dog, planned on having children eventually - and decided to get a Rottweiler. But then one day he came home with a big grin on his face telling me we're going to his aunt's for dinner. And when we walked in the door I realized why - before me stood the cutest, fuzziest dog I've ever seen with his feet in his water bowl, he gave a tiny bark, turned his back on us and started playing with a slipper, we fell in love with him and took him home the same night - he's the opposite of everything we looked for in a dog!
It's been a rollercoaster of ups and downs, Jack was my first dog (apart from the Jack Russel my mum raised when I was a kid) and I've learned so much from him. He's currently the alpha male in a house where me and my husband lives in Jinja, Uganda.
He was born in South Africa and when he was 1 year old, we moved away and popped him on a plain. I was worried sick and he was excited with all the new and I swear I saw a smile on his face when he got out of the car in his new driveway!! The biggest compound he's ever lived in with lots of grass and trees, some mice in the cornfields to chase, a cat next door that he can see and bark at through the fence and his own personal chef (as dog is easier to cook yourself here than to buy at the lack of a supermarket). It's been a dog's life for him ever since.
Two months after arriving here and when he was well settled, we agreed to foster two boys in need of a loving interim home. They are staying with us for 18 months with regular visits from their mum.
He loves his one foster brother - Mickey the 1 and half yr old male bloodhound and despises his arch-enemy (our other foster) Otis the 7 year old chilled out (not aware that he is an arch-enemy) Great Dane.
A week ago we added another foster - yes I am a sucker - a 4 week old abandoned kitten my hubby picked up off the street. Blackie Chan will now be with us until we find a suitable home (this is what keeps me sane, but in reality he's probably going to become our 4th son).
