Can you ear me now? 2 comments

Jack Fact: One of Jack’s dad’s “fun” things to do was to fold Jack’s ears back. Knowing that the E.F.L.O.M. (ear flap o’meter) was a delicate instrument, he didn’t do it for long.

*Jack tolerated a lot of his dad’s shenanigans.


Sticking his neck out 3 comments

Jack Fact: Due to his M.O.N.T. surgeries, Jack’s neck was shaved along with his head but on his neck the fur grew slower, Therefore to stimulate growth, Jack’s mom removed his collar at night and rubbed Jack’s neck.

*M.O.N.T. = Mean Old Nasty Tumors (Jack had three brain tumors)
**The same strategy didn’t work on Jack’s dad’s hair.

Go Find the Turtle 5 comments

Jack Fact: Among the many words in his vocabulary was the word “Turtle.” When Jack’s family asked him to “Go find the turtles”, he knew where to look and often found them, but never hurt them.

(we tried the same trick with the turtles, but they could never find Jack)


Livin with dog hair 5 comments

Sing along time: “Livin with Dog Hair”
(apologies to Bon Jovi: Livin on a Prayer)

People get used to havin dogs
It’s a union we like 
But a price we pay …
It’s ruff, so tough

Dogs lay about and scratch all day
Waiting all the time,
They just want to play
For fun, it’s fun

The house get messy with lots of hair and snot.
It doesn’t make a difference if we clean it or not.
You’ve got each other and here’s a thought
House cleaning ….give it a shot.

Whoa, …you’re half way there
Whoa,… livin’ with dog hair
Hold the broom and we’ll clean it – I swear
Whoa, …livin’ with dog hair

The kitchen is free of hair balls
Time now for the stairs
What’s this new mark on the wall
So ruff, it’s tough

Some may dream of a hair free day
But when the pup’s in sight
It’s worth the time….
Havin a dog, there’s no other way…

The house get messy with lots of hair and snot
It doesn’t make a difference if we clean it or not
You’ve got each other and here’s a thought
House cleaning …..give it a shot.

Livin’ with dog hair

Toys, hair, chewed furniture, spit and snot
You live for the dog when it’s all that you’ve got!

Whoa, …you’re half way there
Whoa,… livin’ with dog hair
Hold the broom and we’ll clean it – I swear
Whoa, livin’ with dog hair

Jack Fact: Because Jack had trouble with his right side and his right paw had a mind of it’s own because of the brain surgery.. Therefore no electrical cords could be anywhere near where he walked (or he would pullover the lamps, television, iPad, refrigerator etc…)
