Happy Birthday to a Special Friend.

Oh shame on me! My mother has just reminded me that it is my dog’s birthday today. I had forgotten. I blame the stress of having a flu jab πŸ˜‰Β  Never my poor memory, of course!

With sincere apologies and much love, I wish you, my dear friend, Jack, a very Happy 6th Birthday. You have been with me through thick and thin and I love every day in your company.Β  Yes, you were that littleAdorationTiring puppy days

Jack was born on 11 April 2007 in Nelson, New Zealand. He is a miniature schnauzer. His birth weight was 227 grams (half a pound of butter πŸ™‚ ) He was number 3 of a litter of 3 and he has two fur sisters, Jill and Bailey.Β  His dog parents are Luci and Bo, both of Nelson.Β  His grandmother was Bailey and his great-grandmother was Rose.

When Jack came to us, we agreed to love him and care for him throughout his life. I think we are doing okay so far. He says the bone we gave him this afternoon was very tasty, thank you.Β  And the vet says that Jack has a fine physique, and an excellent waistline, and is the perfect weight at 9.5kg. Pity we can’t say the same about his human mother πŸ˜€

β™ͺ Happy Birthday, dear Jack! β™ͺ

    I’ve always enjoyed Jack’s appearances in your posts. That last picture of him is especially priceless. Before I set sail, I had a best friend named Nelson (a Jack Russel Terrier) in my life for 14 years. What a wonderful set of memories we created together. He passed away a year before I started my Pacific Crossing.

      Thanks Julie. Today has been tremendously windy so Jack has spent most of the day in the garden, nose to the wind. Such excitement for a little dog.

    Happy birthday, Jack! You are well loved by the humans around you, and it shows! G: I like best the photo of Jack among the bluebells (are those bluebells?).
    Love to you both.

    He is sure cute. However I would love it if he were more welcoming of your friends. I would dearly love to give him a pat but…..?!
