Black & White Sunday 6-2-13

This is a picture of Jack shortly after we got him, so he’s still a little chunky. He loves walking the perimeter of the yard and does his patrol at least 2-3 times a day. Not sure what he’s checking for, invasions of some sort I’m sure. Maggie has taken to doing it as well –... »
