Travelin' Jack-My Story

It all began in January 2009 with a long ride from Colorado to New Mexico.  Little did I know, as a 7-month old puppy, how my life was about to change.  I wasn’t sure why my first ‘people mom’ took me to the shelter, I didn’t think I had been a bad puppy…but that is where my Angel-Auntie Patricia and Jill found me!  I soon learned that Jill had been searching for SIX MONTHS for a rescue bulldog….MY lucky day when I was discovered at that Colorado animal shelter.

BUT let’s fast forward to NOW.  I am a 4 year young Olde English Bulldogge and pawhaps the easiest way to sum up my doggone great life is to say I am called New Mexico’s AMBASSADOG!  I am part of the “JACK AND JILL TEAM” as we travel New Mexico in search and
support of EVERYTHING PET.

Among the honors I have acquired in my 4 years in this pup-profession are 1) I am New Mexico’s pre-eminent and award winning Pet Travel Writer-reporting on pet friendly  travel destinations; 2) I am New Mexico’s ONLY Award winning Dog Author with my book-my personal dog-ography;  3) I am a Dog-Model, having appeared in spots from a Ford commercial to national pet store promotions to resort photo shoots to book modeling (this book included);  4) I write my ‘pup-ular’  Dog-Blog-Travelogue on my website where I cover EVERYTHING PET;  5)  I appear regularly on TV, Radio, the Internet, National Conferences and Events barking about EVERYTHING PET;  6) I even hold the honor of being  New Mexico’s 1st ever Dog-Governor where  I ran as the 2010 INDEPENDENT DOGERNATORIAL CANINE-DIDATE FOR DOG-GOVERNOR OF NEW MEXICO.  I won paws down!  798 animals voted for me on my write-in PETition for Dog-Governor where we helped twelve animal welfare organizations around the state adopt needy pets and raise thousands of dollars in much needed funding.  But perhaps MOST importantly  7) I, Travelin’ Jack live and love to support pets in need.  I have integrated sharing my message in all I do and wherever I travel.  It’s MY way to support Animal Welfare . 

You could say EVERYTHING PET is my PAWSSION !  Yes, I LUV my life.  And I hope to meet you very soon as our paws cross ….somewhere, sometime, some place around our beautiful Land of Enchantment!
