We have taken the plunge again. This is Jack. Jackie-O. Captain Jack. Jack of all trades.

He is sweet. He is smart. He is adorable. He is our new best friend.

Hi is a 3 year old labrador/collie, bred on purpose for how smart they are. We found him through Craigslist. I have been looking in the pets section for 4 or 5 months, half heartedly, thinking maybe someday.....

His picture called out to me, so much so, Reilly and I got in the car and went and fell in love with him. I know, what was I thinking, right? He loves love, and we have plenty of that around so...there you have it.

One week later, here we are with another dog.

What does Ryan think? Well, for a guy who never even had a pet rock growing up, as he likes to say, he is a little less enthusiastic than we are. He doesn't get the need for a dog, he says. Yes, this is the man that would go to Big Lots on a regular basis to find fun chew toys and treats for Charlie. The guy who came home to the dance of joy from Charlie every day, because his favorite person was home.

I can't wait until he gets home today to meet Jack. The Big Lots is only a half a mile away.

Lucky Jack.
