Jack is our 11 year old “very challenged” dog. He cannot jump up on anything....if he gets into a narrow room, he backs out of it instead of turning around and walking out...he is continually trying to dig a hole through our floors to China and it drives us nuts...he barks at his shadow...if we let him out the front door he can run around the property and show up on the back deck, but he cannot figure out how to get off the back deck and back into the front yard...BUT...he is lovable and in a way fits perfectly into this crazy old house. He may be a “full bred” schnauzer with some funky looking papers on him, but he does not act like one and his hair looks and feels like it is coated in Crisco...so we keep him shaved back. He is definitely one unique dog.I really don’t think he would have survived with any other family. He’s lived a long and good life, and I guess he has quite a few more years to go trying to get to China.
