Five years of Gentleman Jack

We brought Jack home from Briarbrook Kennels in Carthage, Mo. five years ago today.

Like today, Nov. 20, 2011 was a Sunday.

Maria found Briarbrook online and we narrowed our choices down to a black tri puppy initially named Luke who had charmingly stuck his tongue out and smiled for his online portrait.

Maria held him much of the way home after he pooped and barfed in the crate we brought along in the back of the Subuaru Forester.

He made unearthly, bizarre sounds that first night away from his mom and littermates, but quickly adapted to his new forever home.

Two of his grandfathers were Best of Breed at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Shows and he has a very noble bearing, in addition to a very sweet disposition.
