After a bit, Mary Margaret was unable to keep up with Jack's energy, and since he was adapting well to life in our house, he no longer needed a daytime walk. But Jack and Patty had forged an enduring relationship.
Mary Margaret went to doggie heaven (where all good dogs go), and Patty embarked on many adventures, including some international travel. But finally, this month, Patty welcomed a new dog into her home.
Patty and I set up Jack and Seamus with a play date this weekend.
Seamus is a poodle, and quite a bit smaller than Jack. He is also a younger dog than Jack, with a lot of energy.
Still, they got along just fine. They played and wrestled. Jack kept mouthing Seamus, and since Seamus is small and hairy, within half an hour, Seamus was reduced to a white mophead soaked in dog saliva. But a happy wet mophead soaked in dog saliva.
After they calmed down a bit, Patty gave them both treats.
Seamus can stand on his hind legs. They're both good dogs.
Jack loves his new friend. And those treats.
