Jack Fact: Jack was rescued along with his actual litter brother and sister. (Jack, Jill and John )
John was the biggest with black and brown fur (but not necessarily the brightest)
Jill (she went up the hill with Jack to fetch a pail of snacks)
Jack was 3.8 lbs, the smallest and was sick
*we don’t know the whereabouts of John or Jill but they are probably secretly Jack fans
Jack Fact: While patrolling the compound, Jack often encountered deer as they traveled outside the perimeter fence. Jack ran to them and watched but never barked. However humans, cats, squirrels, or other critters were a different story.
*It’s possible that the deer paid with an easy pass toll, but we have not yet located the accounting records
Jack Fact: To go outside, Jack would ring the bells hanging on the door, with his nose. (the harder the ring, the more urgent it was)
As he became sick with the 1st brain tumor (M.O.N.T.) he started receiving Jack-snacks as incentive to go to the bathroom outside (the tumor pushed on his brain and confused him ), plus a little spoiling occurred)
Jack soon learned that ringing the bells = Jack snacks.
So…Jack outsmarted his family and started ringing the bells when he wanted a snack.
Jack Fact: Stories have been shared with Jack’s family about people visiting sick and elderly relatives and using Jack posts to cheer them and brighten their day.
*The first picture shows a few photos of Jack on a hospital or assisted living facility resident’s door. (we are honored)
** The second picture is Jack as he practiced cheering people up
Jack Memorial sit rep: For the last few weeks the Jack Memorial Team (J.M.T.) has been researching ideas, scouting locations and gathering estimates for the memorial. Today the team meets again to compare research.
*unfortunately, initial estimates look more expensive than thought.(about double..yikes!)
**Jack’s dad attributes his initial bad cost estimate to a lack of financial experience, because Jack did all the accounting at their house.
