Jackson has had a very busy week.
He went to the vet for his exam and tests (heart worm, lymes, fecal, thyroid, senior blood panel) and I'm pleased to report that he's a healthy boy. He did have a canine tooth broken off near the gum which was extracted. He's still recovering, hoping I will cave in and give him more canned food instead of the moistened kibble.
Jackson weighed in at 98.4 lbs--he's a tall, big guy, but should loose 15 - 20.
Jackson loves his daily walks and we are doing about a mile--He's overweight and not in the best shape,so we are working on a little at a time.
This is a sweet dog who just wants to be with his human. He's getting attached to me and when I leave he barks and cries for 5 - 10 min then waits quietly for me to return. I let him have run of the house (he knocks down gates) and he has been an angel--he's not destroyed a single thing. Someone looking for a senior will be very happy to add Jackson to the household. . . we will begin looking for his forever home soon.
