Happy 1St Gotcha Day/birthday Cap'n Jack!

Recommended Posts

So today mark the 1 year anniversary of meeting Jack!

It was a cold December day, we got a call the week before that the houndies had arrived and that they would be available soon. As soon as we could, we drove the 4 hours that separated us from our new houndie!

We already had our favorite, my husband liked a cow-doggie brindle while I liked the cow-doggie. As soon as we got to the kennel, they let the cow-doggie out and he immediately leaned on me. My husband was the next. Then he proceeded to zoomies and a poop. He had chosen us :hehe

Of course we didn't know yet if HE was the one for us, so we decided to put him back in his crate and look at other houndies. Boy that was an error! He barked barked barked and howled until we let him out again! That poor thing just didn't want to pass on his chance to get home with us!

Because he wanted us so much, we decided to let him out of the crate, where he proceeded to some more leans. And we adopted him. His racing name was Check my Spots, his name was Cap'n Jack. Perfect! I had always wanted an animal named Jack!

We were expecting to only CHOOSE our hound, but Jack was already neutered, so we could leave with him already. Boy weren't we ready! We only had one dog bed and a crate! (Who has only one dog bed really?)

The heater of the car broke down so we drove the 4 hours back home with only blankets and our warm hearts!

And thus started our journey into greyhound ownership. Little did we know that we had step right into a cult :hehe

In one year so much has happened! We got through his SA, he learned many many tricks, he got us wrapped around his paw, whether it is to go for a walk or have a cookie.

He is the sweetest, funniest, quirkiest and most patient friend. He is always there, always following me around like a little shadow. I would not exchange this fellow for the world! It was tough at first, not really knowing what we were getting into, but I am glad we went through this together and would do it again :) He likes to follow us in all our activities and will NEVER rest somewhere hard, thus he has gotten the habit of taking me as a nice sitting spot when a bed isn't available!

Also since his birthday is on the 29th, I figure I might as well celebrate it at the same time! He will be turning 4, but he is so well-mannered, you would think he was turning 7! See how much white around his face he got in only 1 year?
