Jack (Black)

Jack (Black)

Jack is a very lucky boy but his life didn't start off that way, for approximately the first two years of his life. He was dumped at a high kill shelter. And when he was found by a local rescue group, he had his tail tucked under and his head hung low (And in addition, he was heartworm positive). After a few months, his foster momma didn't have room to keep him and asked for another foster momma to step up. That is when I found him. Mr Black as he was known. I was wanting to help other dogs by fostering them. When I got him, I don't think he was ever loved. He didn't even know how to behave like a "pet" (yet oddly he was potty trained). And he was most definitely abused in his previous life. As any verbal correction would result in his tail being tucked in & head hung low, as he would slowly walk to the front door and place his nose to the door. Broke my heart. He was such a good boy and he deserved a good, loving home. MY home I decided! And so I adopted him and officially gave Mr Black a first name -- Jack. Almost 7 months later and Mr Black is completely different. (Though he is still sometimes afraid of men.) He loves all dogs, no matter the size. (He recently met horses for the first time and was very excited by them!) He gets very disappointed if he can't say hello to each and every dog he comes across. And we live across from a park, so he has many opportunities to go out and meet other doggies. When he gets home, he's so excited that he runs laps around the apartment and plays 'relay race' with his toys. When he gets excited, usually by a kitty cat, he will kick out his back legs as if he was a bull. He loves to sleep in weird positions.. as evidenced in the pictures. He's an odd little boy. So much character. He gets so much attention when we are out. I'm constantly asked what kind of dog he is. All I can say is what he is assumed to be, based on his looks. And I've been told many times he looks like a meerkat, which I prefer over hyena (which I have also been told). :-( He's a cutie, especially when he smiles.. Jack has asked me to have a proper photo shoot with him. He's not having it with the camera phone anymore. I will have to oblige. Its the least I can do for him..

Bailey (aka Lady Gretal of Beadal)

In Loving MemoryIn Loving Memory

Bailey lived 13 1/2 amazing years. She lived in Tampa Bay, Orlando and Los Angeles. She made two cross country road trips, had her picture taken in front of the Alamo. She went to Bike Week and Biketoberfest in Daytona. She played in the surf of Malibu (ok played in the surf is a bit of a stretch, she was not a water dog, she was more running away from the surf each time the waves would come in, then come back to the shoreline, not knowing another wave was coming). She went for many hikes in the Hollywood hills, and was even discovered by an agent at Hollywood and Vine (however, a life in the movies was not in the cards for her). She was so precious, David Carradine took a shine to her while passing by, and stopped to pet her. Bailey was a very sweet, loving pup who was devoted to her Momma. If her Momma got on the phone, she would make sure the attention was still on her by grabbing a squeaky toy and running back and forth, throwing the squeaky toy up in the air. (which was very interesting during business calls) She was very well behaved little girl. If her Momma fell asleep watching tv on the sofa, she'd come out to wake her and tell her it was time to go to bed. She was wonderful with kids, would even let them dress her up. She was a lover. She loved people (more of a 'people dog' than a 'dog's dog'). All our neighbors loved her and took special care of her. She was a fun loving "puppy" throughout her entire life. She is and will always be dearly loved & missed.
