Jack’s Walk

Yesterday I mentioned that Jack has difficulty seeing in the dark. I forgot to mention that Jack also has trouble being seen in the dark. His coat is such a deep chocolate brown that when he steps out of the puddles of streetlight, he all but vanishes. That’s a worry because Jack has a nasty habit of eating things he happens upon, things that are probably not good for him to eat like garbage, poop and the occasional small dead creature. Last night he managed to swallow something before I could stop him. I have no idea what it was as there were no bits of it left to identify, but I’m sure it wasn’t a healthy snack. I jammed my hand into his mouth, hoping to fish it out, but I was too late. Jack smiled, licked my fingers and walked on, leaving me standing there dripping drool and hoping for the best. So far, so good.

    Dogs are incredible at the whole “omnivore” thing -- I just wished they didn’t take it so literally. There was one time when Jake at a rotten woodchuck and started farting. That was incredible. He was unperturbed.

    I got caught short once when I was out walking puppy Jazz, she ate what I produced while I was pulling up my trousers. I thought I’d poisoned my little puppy for sure, but there appeared to be no ill-effects at all.

    Beautiful colours.

    Jack’s eaten poop of many varieties and never gotten sick. It’s gross, but interesting.
