The Life of Jack

Now that I have actual readers (including, but not limited to my scooter gang---more later on the crazy Northside scooter ladies) the time is probably right to explain Jack's history. Perhaps he has an eating disorder or "issues" that stem from his early life experiences. Jack wasn't always our dog, you see. Jack wanted to be our dog...but in actuality he belonged to a neighbor who worked and traveled A LOT. At the age of 6 months he found various ways of wiggling his already chubby self out of his lonely yard into ours. It seemed he liked to visit Queen Sadie our BAGEL (beagle basset mix).

You can see where this is going....within a few months our traveling neighbor gifted neglected beagle to nice, unsuspecting family. Jack enjoyed the spotlight for a while until his world was shaken by our adoption of MILO a stray/injured Bichon-Frise.

Is this where Jack's real weight issues began? Did he begin to seek attention? Was it doggy depression? Alpha Male Issues? Middle Child Syndrome? As if we have learned NOTHING from our willingness to adopt we recently found Bailey in a shelter. (now, tell me you wouldn't have brought her home....) Folks....that's how you end up with 4 dogs.
