Catch That Squirrel

Sing along time: “Catch That Squirrel”

(apologies to Rick Springfield)

 

Jack is a dog,

Yeah, we know he’s good most of the time

But he needs to make a change 

Maybe learn how to climb

Jack needs to catch that squirrel before we lose our mind

 

And he’s watching with intense eyes

And he’s salivating and drooling, I just know it!

And he’s dreaming about it,  all day and night

 

You know I wish that he’d catch that squirrel

I wish that he’d catch that squirrel

Where can I  buy a good squirrel trap?

 

We play along with the game

Doesn’t that seem just a little odd and strange

You know that squirrel eats the bird seed and doesn’t give a hoot

I wanna catch him but my wife thinsk he’s cute

 

Cause Jacks watching with intense eyes

And he’s salivating and drooling, I just know it!

And he’s dreaming about it, all day and night

 

You know I wish that he’d catch that squirrel

I wish that he’d catch that squirrel

Where can I buy a good squirrel trap?

 

Please catch that squirrel

I wish he’d catch that squirrel

Where can I buy a good…

Where can I buy a good squirrel trap?

 

And Jack keeps chasin them varmints all the time

Watchin em go scramble up a tree…

He’s been patient he’s been waitin his time

Is that the way is always gonna be?

(guitar riff)

Tell me, will he ever catch a squirrel like that?

(guitar again)

You know I wish that he’d catch that squirrel

I wish that he’d catch that squirrel

 

Where can I buy a good squirrel trap?

 

Catch that squirrel

I wish that he’d catch that squirrel

He wants; I want to catch that squirrel….

(fade out)

He unlocks your day with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension – a dimension of fun, a dimension of dumbness, a dimension of Dog. You’ve moved into a place with no real purpose or substance, just the balancing of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into the Jack Zone.


Jack Memorial Update 5 comments

Jack Memorial Update: Great news! The town of North Beach Maryland(Jack’s favorite place to walk and explore) has approved an excellent location for the memorial!

The custom statue has been commissioned and is being crafted by the artist and we are close to purchasing the dog watering station.

Be sure to send a thank you to Mike Benton (Mayor) and visit North Beach Maryland and walk the beautiful boardwalk and shops.

This memorial may have Jack as it’s “spoke-dog”, but it’s designed to be tribute to all dogs and the fulfillment they provide to our lives.

The memorial is still not complete but we are very excited! If we have an unveiling party plan on bringing your pups! (squirrels by invitation only)


For All Dog Kind 3 comments

Sing along time. Sing these lyrics at the upcoming New Years’s eve party and swear they are the true lyrics!
(apologies to Auld Lang Syne)
 
For All Dog Kind
 
Should all of Jack’s fun be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should his talent be for naught,
For all of his grind?
 
For love of dogs my dear,
For all life he shined,
We’ve still got his spirit in us yet,
For all dog-kind.
 
And surely you have a smart pup,
And surely Jack was mine!
And people talk of his kindness yet,
For all dog-kind.
 
For all dog-kind, my dear,
For all dog-kind,
We’ve still got his spirit in us yet,
For all dog-kind.

Jack Fact: After getting static electricity “zappings”, Jack learned to dodge the second attempts to pet him.

* During the cold months his family would accidentally “zap” Jack when trying to pet or scratch his ears.

** Family learned to discharge the static before touching Jack
