Play Date at Animal Humane--Unexpected Holiday Gift!

Meet Blackie. She is an adorable cutie that is waiting for her next forever home. I met her when I visited the Animal Humane of New Mexico. You might wonder why I would want to go there. Well, there is a doggone good reason. I wanted to wish a Merry Christmas to my canine cousins waiting to be adopted. I took doggie biscuits for the wonderful folks at Animal Humane to put in their doggie stockings on Christmas Eve. And I believe Jill might have slipped them a doggie donation to buy food with and other neat dog stuff.

You see these poor critters....dogs and cats too...are waiting for their forever family. I felt it only my dog duty to share the hope with them that there are lots of great folks out there looking to adopt. I happened to me!

But what I didn't expect was to land a great doggie date with this little queen. Blackie has had a rough go of it, I found out. She was picked up over a year ago with injuries to her face. The good doctors tried to fix her up...and they did, but they couldn't save her one eye. So she has one good eye to see the world with...and as you can see, she has spunk galore and has NO problem getting around with her one eye. She was adopted by a nice man after she was healed. She went off to live with her new forever....she thought....guy. They were very happy together. But then the guy-owner got very sick. Sadly he died about 9 months after she was adopted. So she has landed back at the Animal Humane...once again looking for another forever family.

I tried my hardest to convince Jill to adopt her....after all she is A-DOR-A-BUL! But all I got was a great play date with Blackie. Jill says my TV schedule is just too hectic for another dog right now...and I know she is right...because we have been hitting the road hard.

So after a nice visit at the Animal Humane, we headed content to know that I had left some doggie treats for their Christmas stockings....and a romping play date as well.

If you are so inclined you can play Santa Paws too! Maybe you've been thinking about adopting...well here is the perfect place to find that perfect pet for you. Or if you just want to help out like I did, you can donate. And there are lots of shelters all over the country that can take care of you.....just remember, it's that time of the year. Let's all do our part!

It's just so-o-o-o-o RUFF waiting for that magical day when there are doggie packages under the Christmas tree! At least that's what the tell me. Since I was a young pup last holiday, living in another state, I don't really recall the doggone details. But you can be sure I will this year! I'm counting down the days on my paws......hope there's a bone or two for this ol' bulldogge this year! but for now....

Hello there from Travelin' Jack...on the road. This time with a totally new twist. My TV screening debut for the television show, Travel Guide New Mexico. Yep, you heard right!!! This silly bulldogge has landed a spot on this wonderful television show. It will be called Jack's Tracks. Each week I will highlight a pet-friendly activity and destination in our beautiful state. Doggone lucky, I would say!

Here's a shot of me waiting for my debut shoot, watching the pros in action. I'm on the Riverwalk in Bloomfield. Great place to check out the river action as well as take a nice leisurely stroll. Here you see Richard Holcomb, the host of the television show, being filmed by Ace Cameraman, Chuck! He's my newest best friend (besides Jill of course!) because he follows me around with that big camera lookin' for my best angle!

Didn't quite explore all of it...but pretty doggone Anyway, there was fresh snow to run through...and eat too. But you won't catch me snufflin up the white stuff.....oops, ya got me I guess! Aw well, the truth be told it was one grande adventure for these two cruisin' dogs.
