Check In With Captain Jack

I just wanted to let all my fans know I am back to normal after that horrid rattlesnake bite. I thought you would like to see a picture to prove I am still alive and kicking.

I did finish off the snake as you might say. No one bites Captain Jack and lives. Although I have learned that rattlesnakes are not worth messing with. Or, I need to be faster next time? We'll see...for now I have to pretend I am done with them or my Mom may have a coronary.

Now on to other lessons learned in my life...

This morning I took my Mom on a walk and we saw TWO skunks. I didn't even chase them. I thought I would let my mom think I was over with the whole Skunk thing too. I already found out what skunks can do with their tail raised, and I don't want to go there again. It requires a bath and baths are no fun! Besides, baths are for city dogs, not country dogs like me.

Country dogs love smells and there are just so many living out here where I do! Washing them off really upsets me. I know my Mom doesn't like all the smells I get into. She just can't appreciate the work that is involved in rolling around to cover my whole body. For instance, it is amazing what a cow pie will do to your fur. Then to think all that work is washed away...down the drain...geez. Another smell I just love is a dead animal. Nothing and I mean nothing beats that smell on the o'll coat. It even tends to linger after a couple baths. Well I could go on and on as you may well imagine, but I must get busy. There are rats to kill, squirrels to chase and of course a long afternoon nap in the air conditioned house.

So in closing I would like to say thanks for checking in with me to see how I am. I appreciate all your good thoughts on my recovery. Of course I did play it up long after I was better just to get all those extra hugs/rubs and treats. I kinda think my mom deserves a little break now since she does have to go back to school soon. I promise to mind my manners and stay out of trouble for a little bit.

Until next time!
Captain Jack

Jack, ya lil stinker! (Literally) So glad that you are better! Best leave those snakes alone - they don't make good playmates! Hugs, Leena


Well Captain, you do love your adventures, don't you? I hope for your mom's sake that you can avoid any more critter run-ins. At least for awhile. Give her sanity time to recover. :)
