At Least He's Honest.

Big Dog loves dogs. He loves to give them treats and toys and just generally follow them around.
At Grandma and Grandpa's house, his dog of choice is JC.

JC is an Austrailian Shepherd mix Mr. Dog and I found at a rest stop on our way from SF to Portland one Christmas. When we stopped on Christmas Eve to let our dogs out or a run during the long drive, we saw a little pup, shivering in the rain. he'd been abandoned at the rest stop. After an hour of chasing the frightened puppy in the rain, I was finally able to capture him. I called my parents and told them I was bringing a stray dog home, and that I would help to find him a home, but I couldn't leave him in the rest stop, especially not on Christmas Eve.

In the car on the way to Portland, Mr. Dog dubbed him Jesus Christ in honor of the date.
To make a long story short, by the end of our visit, my dad had connected with the dog, and JC found his forever home with my parents. He has become the most spoiled dog of all times.

Big Dog loves JC. When we go to see Grandma and Grandpa, Big Dog always reminds me that JC is there too.

This morning, Big Dog handed out dog chews to Nikita and Dashiell. He had a third one for JC, but JC has been hiding out from the puppy. Big Dog asked "Where is JC?" and then wanted to find him. First he asked me to go with him to find JC. When I refused, he asked Mr. Dog. So Mr. Dog said "Oh, so am I your last choice?" Very earnestly Big Dog said, "Yes, let's go find him Poppa."
