What a weekend! It was so nice to wake up in Grand Junction. We went to breakfast with Bethany (she was staying just down the road.) Joel raided the DFAC….
Then we headed to Delta to pick up Captain Jack. He’s a 13 week old Jack Russell shorty with a broken coat.
Yes, he’s adorable. Meeting him.
He quickly settled into the car for the ride back to the hotel to get Bethany’s car.
We let him out for a stretch, then James drove Bethany’s car home so she could pet Jack. Hannah read to him.
We stopped in Vail at a cute park to let him run around for a bit.
Finally got home and stayed in with Little Holly’s for dinner.
We put him in his crate at bedtime, of course he didn’t like it. He whined and barked, Bethany ended up sleeping next to the cage for 2 hours then Jack slept on James (on the couch) for the rest of the night.
Happy Father’s day to my Schnooke.
Jack says stairs are hard.
Also he found the perfect spot on the couch.
We went to church, then came home and got Jack to take him to the Farmer’s market. He has a nice pile of sticks outside.
Hercule says look at me!
Jack got lots of pets at the market and some dog treats.
We picked up pizza and took it to Fly’n B park for lunch. Jack sat by the table eating treats. The weather was perfect, cloudy, cool and a breeze. After lunch we took Jack to Starbucks for his first puppuccino – the girls have a bucket list of items for him to experience.
We left him at home and went shopping at Wal-mart, then back home to watch Sherlock Holmes Hound of the Baskervilles. James opened his presents, a mini-grill (just right for planting a plant in) and pictures with a hanging system for work. It started to rain, but that didn’t stop James, Grace and I from going to City Park Jazz to eat food truck dinner and listen to jazz.
Back at home we watched Unfortunate Events. We moved the crate into our room and though Jack still protested at bedtime, it only lasted about 5 minutes. I took him out about 2am, then back to the crate. He slept until 4am, then I took him downstairs and he slept on the couch (I took him out again and he was playing, so I thought it was better to put him on the couch to sleep for a few more hours.) So, a better sleep than last night, but still not a great sleep. I have forgotten how much work puppies are, good thing he’s cute.
