Jack was adopted at 8 months old in Stanford, Connecticut. Mike and Carol Kusama drove 2 hours to adopt the cute border collie/jack russell mix thinking a smaller dog would go well with our cat Tiger. What we got was an amazingly intelligent puppy who was a bundle of energy! He tried so hard to herd the cat but Tiger would have none of it. Tiger ruled the house. We could write a book on the escapades Jack took us on! He loved to travel via car with his butt on the back seat and his front paws on the front console so he could interact with us as we drove. We could point out dogs and “moo-moo’s” to him and he would look and get all excited. I’ve never had or will ever have again a dog that was so connected to us. His brown soulful eyes would look straight through your soul. We took him to all obedience training and he was fearless running the agility courses! He was way too smart for us! He would ignore us if we asked him to fetch or to crawl – until food was involved! He was a dog vacuum cleaner and lived for pizza crust. Jack was happy to share his home with 2 other rescue dogs that died in 2010. And he happily accepted the next 2 rescue dogs we adopted after that! Jack survived pancreatitis, blindness and deafness until he was 16. He still went for 3 slow walks a day in this Texas heat until he told us it was time. He ate well until then. We miss him terribly and will never have another dog like Jack the Wonder Dog!
