Happy Jack-iversary July 8, 2018

Year two with Jack was just as good as year one except for some worrisome health challenges. When you adopt a senior dog you have to expect some glitches along the way but you are never really prepared. This year Jack lost an eye (hence his new name, One-eyed Jack). I also learned the word ‘enucleation.’ It was scary but he pulled through like a champ and seems to be unaware of any changes. The good news is that he always seems to be winking at me. He also suffered from pancreatitis and had to spend three nights at the vet’s office. But once again he came through better than ever. Other than his waking up time (which is 4:41AM) he is a perfect dog. He is sweet, friendly and gets along with other dogs, kids, neighbors and strangers. My two cats, Audrey and Roberta adore him. They snuggle up to him and watch him as he sleeps (and snores). I am looking forward to year three with One-eyed Jack. I lucked out when I rescued him and hope he feels the same way too. I encourage you to adopt, not shop for a pet and if you are so inclined, a senior pet is a true gift.

Long live the One-eyed Jack !!! O-E-Jack came to you from a Best Friend’s pop-up adoption center in NYC. As with other friends of yours (Binky Fndtn), I have just been back to their main hdqrtrs in Kanab, Utah and “worked” for a day there. Best sanctuary ever!! On the way out we drove through ZION National Park, WOW!! that is Gorgeous!!!
Long Live the One-Eyed Jack! Also Audrey and Roberta.

I can’t believe it’s only 2 years, because pictures of him have become such a regular part of life. Happy Gotcha Day, Jack! Long may you woof!
