FOOD. GIVE ME FOOD. Oh, I like when people visit me, too!

Huh? What? FOOD. GIVE ME FOOD. Cmon, pleeeeeeeease?

Favorite Toy:
Jack doesn't really play, per se. If you give him a toy, he sort of looks at the toy, then looks at you, as if you were a little touched in the head.

Favorite Food:
The cat's food. :P

Favorite Walk:
Anywhere, really. He's not picky. He gets excited about the back yard, for pete's sake.

Best Tricks:
Tricks? Huh? FOOD. GIVE ME FOOD! I'm STARVING here!

Arrival Story:
On Labor Day, the boyfriend and I were on the way home from a barbecue. We saw this little blonde and white dog sniffing around in the grass at the side of the road. He commented that he hoped the puppy would be okay, and would find his way home. Well, he did. Sort of. The dog started following the car. He followed us all the way to our house, and we put him in our basement overnight because the nights starts to get a bit nippy in Pennsylvania around that time of year. The next day, the boyfriend called the city. The woman there commented that they'd 'heard from this one before'. Uh oh. Yeah. He'd run away before. He got the phone number of the owners, though, and called them. The first words out of her mouth were "Ya want im?" Well, we couldn't bloody well send him back somewhere where he wasn't wanted, so after a brief discussion, we decided to adopt him. We changed his name from Bobo to Jack. The reason we picked Jack was because he had quite literally defied death to get to where he was - crossing countless streets and several sets of railroad tracks. Jack Sparrow, Jack Bauer, take your pick. Either way, the dog was dubbed 'Jack', and he's lived with us ever since.

He's been a little weird since our cat Orange died a few days ago. I think Jack misses his buddy, even if the cat was grouchy with him sometimes. I think they had an understanding of sorts.
