We Know Jack

I’m calling it Wednesday, here, so this is Wednesday’s Daily Dog I spent a large part of today getting stuff done or ready or purchased, then went and picked up the puppy from the shelter. Then I picked up Mr. Kat from the ferry and we debated names all the way home. In spite of our urge to come up with something more… interesting, the puppy is officially “Jack,” which might be short for “Black Jack,” or “Jack in the Box,” or “Jack of all trades,” or even for “Stonewall Jackson,” though I suspect we aren’t actually sure. What we do know is Bella is totally fascinated with him. If it looks like her tail has been docked, it’s just the high-speed blur. We will have to work on her tendency to be pushy, but she apparently thinks Jack is the bee’s knees. And Jack seems like her a lot too.

The photos are kind of fuzzy, but so is the puppy.

    What breed is Jack?

  10. Labrador Retriever mixed with… fence jumper.

  11. Jeremy says:

    I’ve a lab and he loveesss to swim, so beware there likely won’t be a puddle, lake, or other body of water that Jack won’t charge head long into. Though they dry off fairly quick and don’t tend to smell particularly bad when wet.

  12. Aimee says:

    So glad that it’s working out and that Bella likes her new playmate! Will he get to be in a book too?

  13. Rae says:

    Is Jack bringing out the maternal instincts in Bella?

  14. she tries, but he keeps trying to suckle on her… with his teeth.

  15. Rae says:
