Stick to it 2 comments

Jack Fact: as a younger dog, Jack loved playing with sticks, but as he got older he got over that .(it seems he mastered the challenge and stuck with his true love of tennis balls and Frisbees)

*Here we see Jack as decides if this stick is worth the effort.


Born to Love 3 comments

Sing along time: (apologies to Bruce Springsteen: Born To Love)

Born to Love

In the past they had to sweat it out on streets or a crate away from love it seemed 
All day they waited for someone in conditions that were often too obscene
Sprung from cages some just in time,
To homes they are taken and ready for a howlin good time
Oh-oh, Baby you saved these dogs from attack
Free from the death trap, it’s a s proven map
They got get out, old or young
`Cause dogs like this, baby they were born to love

yes, folks they are

If you let them in then they will be your friend
They guard your house and televisions
Just wrap your heart round the fur and spit
And say goodbye to your tensions
Together you will break the trap
Now dogs run till they drop, with balls they never bring back
Oh-oh, they walk with you until you grow tired
`Cause baby they were just scared and lonely crier
But now they know how it feels
They don’t have to worry bout life
Cause they know when your love is real

Oh, can you handle the pee
(Saxophone solo)

Inside your house you learn the sounds of whines and groans so they can go out in the yard
In cars you see them in rearview mirrors
And the windows get so smudged
The amusing bark heard while in the park
Dogs may tear up the house to show you’re missed
But they will die for you defending you in a fight
How could someone not like this! Huh?

1-2-3-4!

Everyone’s life is packed busy but find time to take them for a drive
Maybe a quick toy play or run tonight
Or a game of seek and hide

Together you can solve some of the madness
A dog will love you with all the gladness in its soul
Oh-oh, they find a way to get under your skin
But when they lick you on your face
Cause they really got to go
Then you see them in the sun
Cause dogs like this
Baby they were born to run

Oh honey, dogs like this
Baby they were born to love

Come on sing with me, dogs like this
Baby they were born to love

Love uh-uh-ve
Wo-oo-oo-ff
Run-uh-un-oh-oh-oh-oh
Run-uh-uh-uh-un
Wo-oo-oo-ff
Whoa-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Run-uh-uh-un

 


Poor Puddy Tat 2 comments

Jack Fact: Jack often took field trips to his grandparent’s homestead where a cat lives (and rules). Now whenever Jack’s dad visits, the cat hisses, meows loudly and gets very “catty”.
*Maybe Jack’s costumes were too much for the poor puddy tat…

He sure don’t want to hurt no one

Cause he had a great home

Really loved chasin’ squirrels way way up the tree
Barkey-snarky, barky-snarky at squirrels all the time
Come on down, and he’ll show you a good time
(Fade out)


Loud and Smelly 2 comments

Jack Fact: Probably because he didn’t trust dad alone with heavy equipment, Jack always came running when dad started the generator (occasionally to test run it) and stayed despite it being very loud and smelly

*the generator was loud and smelly
