any walk really....but especially mountain trails and on the beach, "the Farm" in Cleveland

Best Tricks:
Hi-fives, giving hugs, rolling his eyes and using his eyes to point to things (like treats)

Arrival Story:
Chris rescued Jackson from the Greenville Humane society when he was a puppy.....Chris knew he had to take him home when he said "Hi, my name is Jackmonster!"

Bio:
Jackson is not a normal Black Lab...he does not like to swim!?!? He is very weird. He does go into the ocean though and has fun until waves hit him in the face. Jackson is desperately looking for dog parks in the Marietta area. He just moved here from Asheville NC where we lived very close to a dog park. He has been to Piedmont Park and loves it but would prefer something closer so his Mom & Dad can take him more often. A lake/beach that allows dogs would be excellent as well!!! Jackson likes to jump into laps when he is scared....see picture on the left where we were eating at a Sidewalk Cafe and a Mack truck drove by and blew its horn....it terrified Jackson and he jumped in to Amy's lap! Other pictures include Jackson cuddling with WillaCat, at the beach and on the Blue Ridge Parkway with best friends Mata and Jeremiah.

In Loving Memory:
Jackson started feeling bad in January '07 so we took him to the vet and unfortunately found out he had a large tumor in his liver...most likely cancerous :( At that time the vet told us the grim news that he only had days, maybe weeks left....we were not expecting that because he had been so healthy for his age. We spent the last 2 weeks of his life spoiling him, loving him and trying to make him as comfortable as possible. We are glad we got to spend that 2 weeks with him to say goodbye. We sure miss him though and hope that he is with his sister cat Willa playing in a big open field chasing squirrels.
