A Visit with Jack

I spent the last week dog/house sitting for a friend of mine.  Jack is very different from Toby, who I have stayed with before.  I posted a picture of him earlier and have more of him today.

Size is a huge difference and age is also a big difference between these two boys.  I have had many dogs as pets before ever doing any dog sitting.  My biggest dog was Dakota who weighed in at around 80 lbs, which is quite a bit less than Toby weighs.  My smallest dog was Trixie, who was about 5 lbs, which is a fair amount less than Jack – but I am not sure what Jack’s weight is (maybe 25 lbs?)  Jack is a little over weight, but we won’t tell him that.  Toby will be 2 years old in a couple of weeks and Jack is about 12 years old.  Toby loves his toys and Jack doesn’t even look at the ones he has – but I used one in some photos anyway.  He wasn’t impressed.  🙂

Energy level is definitely different between these 2 dogs also.  It is hard to tire Toby out and Jack spends much of the day sleeping.  If this had been summer, I would have taken Jack for a few walks, but I was warned that if I go much further than a very short walk to the corner, I would have to carry him home.

Anyway, I took a few photos of little Jack while I was there.  🙂

Time to sleep

Jack is an adorable little guy with a sweet personality.  In between his naps and meals, we had lots of cuddles.
