We’ve now had Jackson for more than a month and I’ve been meaning to share some pictures and stories. So many cute things and funny things happen with him, I’ve intended on journaling them and sharing the funny stories but I wait too long and then there’s too much to tell. All I really need to say is that he is awesome, so cute, and does the funniest puppy things and he makes me laugh everyday.
He sure is a handful! Full of energy when awake, and then just wipes out and takes lots of naps. I exercise him twice a day– morning and evening, where we go for a good walk down our country road. He’s starting to run with me a little now with those long legs, which is awesome since the little intervals of running keep him from stopping everywhere to smell the smells! He has quite the nose, these dogs are born and bred for their good noses and that keeps him really busy. I think he’ll be a good hunting dog for Will, he’s been pointing butterflies and dragonflies, and watching the geese and birds flying, so he’ll be pointing birds in no time =)
It’s really fun to watch him around water, the first times with the hose on he was chasing and pawing at the moving water like he was trying to catch it, then figured out how he can drink out of the hose and just loves that. Last week as I was in Thompson Falls with Will, we took him down to a nice beach area on the river. Oh boy, he had no idea what he was in for… just went crazy flying all over the beach, digging in the sand, sniffing and snorting it, pretty much wearing it and trying to swim in it. We threw some sticks in the water and he ended up swimming for the first time which was pretty fun to watch.
I’ve been wanting to share some pics of the evening I went to pick him up, these were taken more than a month ago but better late than never right? And here’s some more recent ones from the last 1 1/2 months.
Well there’s the update and pictures finally! Hope you enjoyed them. =)
