What's in a name?


Let's get one thing straight. I am not named after Michael Jackson. No way, José. I'm called Jackson because of the song (either the Johnny Cash & June Carter Cash or the Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood version).
When I was rehomed nobody knew my name and I wasn't going to let on. What do you think it was? Any guesses? J1 & J2 spent ages calling me every name under the sun trying to figure out what it was.
I think I got lucky because I could have been called Trampas after Doug McClure in The Virginian. What kind of stupid name is that? Luckily J2 didn't like it and put his foot down.

Hello Jackson:
I am GusDagger wft and I found out about you on my long lost brother Mackie's blog. I'm a resuce too, and I have a blog at www.gowithgus.blogspot.com. I live with my muzzer and dad in Tempe, AZ. We almost moved to York, UK last year. Just think, we might have been buddies!

I hope you are getting some help from the vets, and feel better soon.

Hello Jackson

Butchy and Snickers told me about you. WELCOME !!!

I am new too and my mum is very busy so I don't blog too much.

Please ask your mum to look into natural therapies for you. Mum has had very bad experiences with vets, not that all vets do the wrong thing but their treatments do not work. Mum has never got veterinary specialists killing Jessie. This is not an exaggeration. Mum recently bought a book from America written by Dr Pitcairn who is a vet and he has been researching natural health and diets for dogs for a very long time. Please ask your mum to look into natural therapies for you.

Best wishes from your Aussie friend, Hammer
