8-18 Media: Life with Jack | News, Sports, Jobs

Indy Pomeroy, 9

Hello, my name is Indy. I am 9 years old and I will tell you about a live fluff ball aka my dog, Jack. If you want to know what it looks like, just imagine the perfect marshmallows. Mom saved him from hoarding. When we first got it it was knotted and smelly. At first Jack was really shy but seemed to feel more comfortable when we got the rewards. He wouldn’t come close to me, so I decided to move towards me, but when he got to my hand he went to get the treatment bag. Another memorable moment when he pounced on me for the first time. If you want to know how it happened, it was when I was eating potato chips on the couch, and he wanted it so good. It startled me so much that I threw the bowl across the room.

Jack is 3 years old and has been living with us for about 2 years. He sleeps with my mom, but he comes into my room and wakes me up by jumping on my bed and sometimes on my face. I’m sure he thinks I’m a snack because he’s constantly trying to eat my fingers.

He has a basket full of toys he never played with. They are actually quite cute. One of them is a small lamb, there are a couple of cute monster toys and pull the rope of war. Speaking of his games, I already have a ball in my bag that I thought I should give him, but decided to keep it to myself as a stress ball.

Jack loves to walk but hates to be tied up. My mom has to walk with him because she thinks I might drop the leash. Also, if you are asked to seat our puppy, do not let Jack off the leash when you are out for a walk because he will run away. It is a good idea to keep him away from cat food. I am serious that it will destroy it. He doesn’t know how to perform tricks like rolling over, sitting or playing dead but he knows how to do it “be nice,” And he’s just being… well he is.

I’ve always wanted a dog. I thought he would be a big dog and he would sleep in my room and I would be in charge of everything: except perhaps the dog poop. Jack is a small dog, I am not responsible for anything but providing thumbs and fingers for him to chew on, I am responsible for dog poop sometimes which is a problem, but Jack is very convenient for me and my family.
