This very moment in November of 2009, was the first time I met Jackson and fell in love with him immedietely. We have alway had dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters (Yuck...hamsters) All of them being rescue/adopted pets.
This was our very first time, not only "picking" out a dog, but having a puppy!
Don't we look like proud new parents!!
Well, our new quiet, empty nest of a home did not stay that way very long.
Before we knew it there were naughty messes to clean up.
Toys were all over the house again.
Suddenly, someone needed naps again...
...and help getting up the stairs.
Now almost 5 1/2 years later, come Winter:
...he is my constant companion.
Today we visited his breeder for his Spring grooming. This is always a wonderful treat for him as he gets to run and play with his dad and other JRT as they explore the countryside.
He's quite the happy boy!
Quite the tired one too!
Like so many us, he's always glad to be home where his toys are his own...
There are no puppies climbing all over him as he basks in the sun.
And, he can get back to the business of chasing squierrels!
So it's kinda easy to see why he's in so many quilty pictures. Sometimes we just get the "right" pet and it makes all the difference in the world doesn't it! Thanks for keeping us company with your comments and drop ins this week during my Spring Stay-cation. It was fun, relaxing and rejuvinating. I even find myself looking forward to getting back to work.
