Ben and I are the first to admit that our dog is strange.
He doesn't do a lot of those typical dog behaviors.
For example, he doesn't play.
He's just now, at 6 years old, learning how to play with other dogs.
(Thanks to Molly and Sadie, our friends dogs...they're teaching him.)
He also doesn't play with toys.
We've bought him toys, but he wants nothing to do with them...
This is Jack's new love:
It's a pink possum that belongs to Molly, Rachel's dog.
He protects it, lays on it, and runs around the house squeaking it.
Jack is not allowed in the kitchen.
He knows not to put his paws on the linoleum.
Maybe he loves it so much because it belongs to Molly...his best dog friend.
Maybe it smells like her.
