Our Newest Addition - Jack

Photobucket

This is Jack, a 7 year old Black Lab. We have been looking for a dog for a long long time. My husband is a dog person, actually he is an ANIMAL person. I can take 'em or leave 'em pretty much. But I had said when we got a house, we could get a dog. It was important to Sean to get a dog and Hannah seems to have inherited his love of dogs so for the last few months we have been looking at dogs.

I want a Mastiff. I fell in love with those big ol' noggins they got and that is just what I have to have! But I do love labs too. I used to have one and that is a long story that I don't want to get into, but I had a black lab named Jack years ago and had to give him up. So fast forward to yesterday afternoon. I was looking at the forums on PhoenixMommies and happened to see a post listing a black lab that had to find a home quickly or it was going to have to be taken to the pound. I got in contact with the girl who posted the ad and we emailed back and forth with me asking all kinds of questions and her answering them. When she told him his name was Jack I about fainted. Now before you go there, no its not the same Jack. But he is a black lab named Jack and I am in love with him. I talked it over with Sean and we decided to go ahead and adopt him.

So we had Jack brought over this morning and he is the biggest sweetest ol'boy ever! Poor Sean is working today though so he hasn't met Jack yet, but what a treat for him when he gets home tonight!
