Jack's Week at Camp Tracy

I recently went out of town on a trip, so Jack (and Spec) got to go to Tracy's house for a week. Her house is much more fun than his at home. Tracy works with dogs. Here are a few of Tracy's notes about Jack's week at dog camp:

Tuesday, May 24 Jack rode really well in my car -- maybe because Spec was in it. Jack didn't want to get in the car, though. He didn't even want his leash on to leave the house. Mike (the handyman) was here when we got here and Jack jumped all over him.
Wednesday, May 25 Jack barked for about 30 minutes at bedtime. We all got up at 5 a.m. and then went back to bed. Then Jack barked from 6:30 - 7:30.
Thursday, May 26 Last night I left Jack out with McQueen. Jack whined when I went to bed but didn't bark. He amazes me by how fast he runs. He can keep up with the big dogs. His little legs do triple time.
Friday, May 27 Jack and Boone were up all night playing. And they bark while they play. Boone was afraid of Spec at first (well Spec lunged and barked at him and chased him all around the yard) but Boone just did three play bows in an attempt to get him to play. Spec didn't know what to do. Boone ran off with Jack.
Saturday, May 28 I have a headache behind my left eye called "Jack." That monkey/hyena barking is enough to drive a person ... well, drive a person to drive away. It takes a village to care for Jack. And, luckily, I have a village. Almost every dog has given Jack "what for." And they do it so nicely and then go right back to playing with him. Sadly, I'm the only one bothered by his nightly barking!!
Sunday, May 29 I don't know what the dogs did while I was away, but the white ones were covered in mud. It's bone dry outside. Maybe they dug a well. Jack has been spending a lot of time outside with the big dogs. He's usually the last one to come when I call.
Monday, May 30 Hey, I think Jack misses you. He finally started paying attention to me. I was brushing Ginger and he was standing underneath her and was totally orange by the time I was done. He stayed out with the big dogs last night and didn't bark at all.
Tuesday, May 31 Jack was quiet all night. He was out with Layla and Boone and I think they are finally too tired to play. Spec had the honor of waking me this morning with his low, raspy bark. Jack isn't giving Spec the time of day. He's too busy with the big boys and I think Spec is glad!
