Master Jackson, Puppy Extraordinare

"Whoever said you can't buy happiness forgot little puppies." -- Gene Hill

It actually looked like we had a toddler in the house again; little toys scattered all over the living room floor. Soft ones, squeaky ones and a big comfy pillow to sleep on.

We have had the pleasure of dog-sitting a special little black Havanese puppy called "Jackson".  He is also affectionately known as "Jack", or "Jackie Chan".  He is 10 weeks old and he is really cute.  I forgot what it's like to have a puppy around.  His playfulness, combined with his good looks and small stature makes him really easy to love.  Jackson is an active little puppy when he's awake.  He likes to play tug-o-war, and he is learning the commands, "sit" and "lay down".  He is also being housetrained, and is doing pretty good with that, too.  Our dog Rocky, at five-years-old, seems amused with Jackson's energy and enthusiasm.  Jackson wouldn't touch his puppy food if it was in his own bowl.  As soon as we put it into Rocky's bowl, he chowed down.  He also whined until we put a few pieces of Rocky's kibble into his bowl. 

Everyone loves friendly little Jackson, and he has a beautiful silky black coat.  His little tail curls up and around his rump when he walks.  His eyes are big and brown and he follows little butterflies and birds when they catch his eye.  He hops along when he runs.  He licks your toes under the table.  He reminds me of my little cockapoo I had many years ago.  Her name was Bunny. 

Here's a picture of my daughter and her cousin, holding this sweet little puppy, Jackson.  For more on the Havanese breed, visit this site:
