Best Tricks:
Bark (hehe), Sit, stay, lay down, shake, roll over, say her prayers, look cute, cocks her little head sideways when she hears a funny noise, count to 3

Arrival Story:
We lost our chow chow of 14 years and Zeke was very lonely. We decided he needed a friend, so one Sunday I went to PetSmart to find a female. Jackpot was the only girl there but boy did she win my heart. I think the pound was a bit traumatic for her, but after a few months of adjusting to a new house, loving family and being just spoiled rotten, she is a happy healthy little pumpkin!

For The Love Of Bread What Was I Thinking

So...one day dad was making kolaches and I was supervising, as always. Poor dad thought he had all the ingredients back far enough on the counter. Boy was he wrong! I found me some bread dough, not cooked (mom says it's gross, but hey...I was desperate) and I ate not 1....not 2...not 4...but 7 balls of bread dough.

Then dad comes back saying to himself...is that all I have??? He calls mom who says to call the vet...who says to give me 3 tablespoons of peroxide to throw up or I could DIE (bread dough would rise in my tummy...yikes!). Dad finds a way to get me to drink it...and HOLY bread balls batman...did it all come up! Bread balls were everywhere.

Dad was so relieved, he wasn't too hip on having to take me to the vet and get my stomach pumped. I haven't gotten into anything else lately, but you never know with me.

Later allligators!

Opportunity Knocked

So, as you all know I'm on this damn diet and am hungry all the time. No one seems to care. I get fed twice a day with special Science Diet "diet" dog food and a can of green beans every day, so don't feel too bad for me. I have lost 6 pounds so far, and yes I think I look lovely!
Dad was being so sweet to mom, before she was off to work. He made her an egg & cheese breakfast sandwich on an english muffin. It smelled so good. Mom was so happy to have breakfast, but put the sandwich on the dryer...went to go get her shoes and purse to head out the door. She goes to grab the sammy and BAM..it's gone :o(
I'm looking guilty as ever with the napkin in my mouth. I tried to find an alabis, but when you're caught, you're caught. Mom just laughed, gave me a kiss on the nose and said "I knew better" then called me an opportunist. Poor mom went to work hungry...now she can know how I FEEL all the time!

 

Mom Read My Book Today at St. Viader Catholic School!

Hi everydog!
Mom had such a great day today. She went to St. Viader Catholic School and read my book, Jackpot's Tail, to the 68 kids in 2nd grade classes 2A and 2B.
That's a whole lotta kids and boy they were SO GOOD, well behaved and smart! Everyone listened intently to my story and asked great questions afterward. They also thought I was so cute :o)
The illustrator of my book, Melissa Sanchez, also came and answered questions from the kids about how she came up with the illustrations. They thought she was super cool!
Mom handed out book marks and doggie pencils to the kids and showed them lots of pictures of little 'ole me. She thanked them for letting her come to their classroom. Being a Catholic school, mom was free to talk about God and that was fun. The kids even prayed along with me (in my book I have a few prayers asking for God to help me find a fur-ever home)...mom thought the kids were just adorable.
Thanks again, St. Viader, for listening to my story. Our hope is that you help other dogs in need of a good, forever home!
Woofs,
Jackpot
