Jack is making a lot of friends in Barlick. I don't know why, maybe it's his face markings but people on the street feel the need to stroke him. Women in particular fall for him.

As you know, I had a bad experience with Joe, the lurcher from Irlam. I was very wary about taking another feral dog on but I'm beginning to think that Jack will make it as a member of the team. He's good at coming to hand when off the lead but I'm not saying he'd take any notice if he was distracted.

He's fast and very agile and seems to have lungs as big as a bucket, I haven't heard him pant as though he's out of breath even after a hard run. As for jumping, he's like a cat. Here he is on his favourite perch. Someone asked me the other day why I don't stop him doing it. It's easier to clean the drainer twice a day!


[This topic started as Jack's blog but in Jan 2008 I had to put him down because he started attacking strange dogs.  His successor is Black Jack. a Patterdale pup, no point erasing Jack the Lurcher from history....  he was a good dog and what happened wasn't his fault.  He had too bad a start.....]

I would be ever so grateful if one of you would "do the deed" as you put it Kev.

If the weather is fine tomorrow (Wednesday) I'll be home around 3:30. We'll arrange a nice alfresco pic, perhaps in the town square........

I'll polish his nose and await the call.  I'm in from about 13:30 onwards after Letcliffe....  I'll put Mrs Nikon on charge so you can do a couple for me on it......

A thought about dog food that struck me when feeding Jack today:  Never feed a dog anything you wouldn't eat yourself.  His home made grub is good enough to eat.

The pics are a credit to Kev.  I like the second close up of Jacks face.  I know we all have the best dog in the world, that's how it should be but I have to say Jack is a gent and a pleasure to have around.  I think he's in pretty good condition now, such a joy to see the muscle going on and the shine on the coat.  Only problem is of course that his energy knows no bounds.........  Child care is so wearing!

BK obviously has a knack for pet photography - could this become a nice little earner on the side, I wonder?

And no - I don't remember Lintox - what was it? Sounds a bit toxic!Go to Top of Page
