UPDATE:Jackson turned 10 months old this past Saturday,today being Tuesday,February 26,2008.I took him to Petsmart to socialize him and he did well.People were amazed by his size,being his age.Then we went to McDonald's and I bought him a small Vanilla ice cream cone!We also had Jackson weighed and he's at 78.2 pounds!Also, yesterday,I took him to the park and even though we're not supposed to,let him off the leash to play.It was so fun.(end of update)UPDATE:April 23,2008-Jackson's a year old today!! I made him a cake and took pictures and we're getting him weighed on Saturday.He's so big and has matured SO much since I got him on June 3,2007!
UPDATE:June 16,2008 I found the perfect way for Jackson to get plenty of exercise and for me to have fun at the same time! Jackson pulling me around on rollerblades!!It is SO much fun!!(end of update)
UPDATE: Friday, October 3, 2008- Jackson is probably one of the most serious dogs I've ever met! He does not like to cuddle up next to you, and he doesn;t really like sweet talk! But at the same time he's a good hearted guy that loves us to death, goes crazy when we come home, would protect us with his life, and is just an all around great dog! He needs his annual shots,and we'll probably do that this weekend. I thinking of getting him neutered, as well.
Hm...mom just doesn't know whether or not to show me in the fun match on August 8. I'm better with strangers...but it really depends on the person. And I am good with dogs-I really am-but I sometimes bark at them.
Mom just hopes I don't cause any grief for the other handlers and whatnot!
Mom's been stacking me at home, and I do really well,but what will happen actually being AROUND people??
Soooo mom's gonna stack me at a pet store and a park, and anywhere else there are people!
