Trumpets Blare Forth!

Vote for Jackson!!

My Pal Jackson has been nominated as the "Bravest Pet in Sussex" and I would appreciate it lots if you would go and vote for him. Ahem, Or, for any of the other very brave pets listed there......but !

Here is the URL to read the stories about Jackson and the other nominees.

Now, I may be a bit prejudiced, because Jackson IS a WFT, and he IS a rescue (like me!) and I like to read his blog and hear about his adventures, BUT.....

I think if you visit Jackson's blog
http://jacksonsworld-jackson.blogspot.com/ and read this excerpt from my muzzer's e-mail you will understand why I support him as a candidate.

Jackson, my 8 year old Wire Fox Terrier, has reached the finals for the Bravest Pet in Sussex Award, here in the UK.
Jackson has had a really tough year; firstly he was diagnosed with degenerative disc disease last August. While this was being investigated at the veterinary hospital he was also diagnosed with primary hyperparathyroidism . He had a malignant tumour removed from his neck in February this year and in June had 40 kidney stones removed.
We have had several anxious moments with him and he's been rushed to the vet during the night on more occasions than I care to remember!
However, in typical fox terrier fashion he is such a determined little dog. He acts as though there is nothing wrong with him and in fact most people think he's the picture of health and vitality! His resilience is amazing and he has recovered exceptionally well and is now able to go out for walks again and play with his toys which are his 2 favourite occupations.

Thank you for considering a vote for my pal Jackson!



I have permission from Jackson and his mum to post this on my blog.

No gratuities or monetary compensation has been offered or accepted for this post.

Love hearing about your adventures. I had a little beagle here today...poorly behaved little brat jumped up on the pic nic table and ate my friends steak! Apparently this is how it was trained in her last home! So we could not get too angry! But she did NOT get to keep the steak!

Good thing she is so cute!
