October 2011. First visit to the beach
August 2016. Jack after a paddle in the Nene River estuary.
May 2016. Jack as drawn in charcoal by our brilliant friend, Emi Farnham.
2014. Jack’s first selfie.
August 2014. Jack looking out to sea on the Lincolnshire coast.
These were Jack’s best mates, who he saw most days walking around Tiddenfoot Waterside Park, near where we used to live.
Water’s Edge. Next to the Grand Union Canal – a family of swans is making its way along the water out of shot.
March 2013. Jack with his new treat – a full-size antler. Antlers, dropped naturally by deer, provide a healthy, non-splintering chew for dogs and are full of good things like calcium, phosphorous and iron – and tasty marrow. Shortly after taking this photo, we separated Jack from the antler to cut it down to size a bit. He then gnawed through sections about 10 inches long.
October 2011. He likes the sea!
June 2103 – Two Rottadors together. Jack with his new friend (and doppelganger, apart from one important detail – she’s a bitch) Laika. They met while on a regular walk in our local park. Laika is recovering from having a new plastic knee inserted in her right hind leg and is a bit sensitive about it, something that Jack didn’t quite cotton on to at first. But by the time this picture was taken they were mates – from the same rescue centre, about the same age … who knows what could happen?
December 2011. Christmas treat.
July 2012. Still looking like a puppy at three years old.
Feburary 2013. Recovering from having a split dewclaw removed from his right foreleg (although he likes this position whether he’s recovering or not!).
