Now We Are 6!

Guest Jacks_Human

Today, my boy Jack turns six. I adopted him just over two years ago from Greyhound Rescue Fife. Jack had raced in Ireland, and was sold to some Scottish scumbag who then handed him over to the greyhound rescue when he was done using Jack for whatever sketchy activities. He was skinny and hairless and scarred. Because of his background, Jack was very shy and phobic about everything (picking up a stick or sticklike object would send him scampering off in terror). He had been cautiously cordial to the lovely people at GRF, but when he saw me, he went into full on happy wriggle dance mode-- I was going to be his human, no if's, and's or but's.

 

Jack has not only managed to get past his intense fears, but become a very friendly dog. He now volunteers with Pets as Therapy. Also, he now acts as though he's never known hardship-- the other day he had a whiny strop because both his humans had their hands full, which meant he had to scratch his own back itch rather than have one of his servants get it with a brush :P But I figure he deserves it.

 

Happy 6th Birthday Mr. Jack!

Happy Birthday Jack! Love hearing how much progress he has made. From scared and skittish to a therapy dog! How wonderful. Reminds me of my Ace who was super skittish and now is such a lover and has so much more confidence. Ace is a black boy with a white chest too. Hugs to Jack.
