                Lucky Jack! Happy seven year celebration! Sounds like he had a wonderfully spoiled day - just as it should be.

                Kinser never had ice cream when Decker was around. We honestly don't eat it much at home, and because Decker could not handle being out in public settings neither dog got to go when we did go to a local ice cream stand. The last year or so Kinser's gotten to enjoy that experience and now every time he gets in the car he expects to go for ice cream and vocally expresses his displeasure if that's not where he goes. Toby loves ice cream too but I think he might like all the kids that come with ice cream stands as much as he likes the ice cream itself.

                Wishing you and Jack many more years of celebration (and ice cream treats).

                      Thanks for the happy birthday wishes for our boy and for asking about him Tami.

                      Jack's doing well. His back has been stable for the past couple of years.

                      This year his only health adventure was cutting his foot on something during a wade in the river, right on the side of a toe. Because of where it was, it wasn't healing up properly so he we took him in after a week and he got four stitches (and a nail trim while he was sedated...) and two weeks of rest and a sock on his foot, and then it healed up nicely.

                      This is him this year, checking to see what I might be getting out of the fridge.

                              Aw, Happy Birthday Jack!

                              Boy did he hit the Jack (ha-ha) pot. Admittedly there are so many unlucky dogs out there, but these ones like Jack with high energy needs and Ruby high medical needs...sometimes they just land in exactly the right spot.

                              Really glad to hear he is enjoying good health lately. It is such a struggle when the young ones have pain.

                              I remember when I was training and was going to do a session with a Border Collie cross. I told my husband I was going to work with a dog who might very well be smarter then I was.

                              Lucky for both of us we found each other. I'd do it all again girly.

                                Just catching up on Jack's thread.

                                He sure looks good and so happy to read that his back is no longer as much a problem as it was a few years back.

                                Belated happy birthday and adoption day Jack
