This is a picture of Jack, about two weeks after we found him on the road, sick, scared and alone. We believe he was 'dumped off' far from houses where he could have been found. He had been eating leaves and twigs as was evident in his diarrhea for the next two days. I don't think he would have lasted much longer.
Back to the picture. He's wearing the cat's harness, and laying nearby is the red leash we used to take him for his necessary walks and get him used to the yard. (Also the cat's - I miss her) On the floor behind him - that dull yellow thing - is a rubber snake, one of a bag of them I bought to put in the grapevines to scare away the birds. Shown is the packing slip from eBay. I was heavy into eBay back then, I bought things for the household and sold jewelry. I no longer want anything to do with eBay, the company or some of the participants. Then there is the small doll in front of him. He was much loved by Jack. We named it Geppeto and Jack dragged and ragged on that poor doll. One day, Jack had another bout of the diarrhea and Geppeto caught the worst of it. There was no washing it, so I threw it away. Poor Jack, he missed it for a couple of days, however he was not at a loss for toys. I still have two crates of puppy toys that the two dogs still go 'shopping' in and string them all over. The nasty old carpet is a thing of the past, replaced by washable flooring. How I hated that ugly carpet.
So, you see, this is not just a picture of Jack. It's a journal of the past and things I had shelved in my memory. Take any old picture and see how many things it brings to your memory.
While going through my files, I recollected how old the TV was, how long ago we remodeled the kitchen (thus the flooring change), and a million other little tidbits I hadn't thought about.
Have a good day!
