Everyone needs a fleet of flying monkeys to rip the stuffing out of the annoying people in their lives
— Laura

Life is still super busy, but I had enough time this weekend to take a short shitty video of Jack trying to get Tinks to chase him with my NEW iPhone 5.

Notice Jack’s flipped-back ear? As anyone with a doxie will attest to, you spend most of your time flipping their ears back to factory settings, well that, and picking up shit they destroy. Oh, and did you know I have an iPhone? Well, I do. I also have an almost fully recovered from spinal surgery best friend.

  4. Jena says:

    Damn allergy watery eyes.

    Huh, who new you need a NEW iPhone5 to improve your camera skills so MUCH? Ha!

  5. Cinder says:

    Tinks is a tease… the music is great and Jacks looks WONDERFUL!!!!! No Shitty Here…… Happy Happy Holidays….

  6. Larry says:

    And as soon as you flip the ear over he shakes his head and then they’re both flipped back…

    Fortunately for me mine doesn’t destroy (too much) shit, but he does leave a pile in the middle of the floor when he’s not happy with me.

    Glad Jack is feeling better!

  7. Holiday says:

    Cant ask for any better Gift than that….. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. and a special hug for Jack.

  8. Sophia says:

    YAY!! Jack looks great!!

  9. Yabu says:

    Jacks starting to get his groove on.

  10. RocketDoc says:

    The cat tail twitching is a definite DANGER sign. Cats with ears back and twitching tails are primed to murder someone. Anyone.

    You must be careful.

  11. Erin says:

    Way to go, Jack!

  12. Elphaba says:

    Tinks wasn’t having any part of it…the party pooper! Love that Jack is feeling so chipper!

  13. Paige says:

    Love it! Love to see him back in action with that much spunk. If it puts that much of a smile on my face, it cannot be overstated how happy you’ve got to be right now. Wonderful for you both. And maybe even Tinks.

  14. Roxie says:

    I’m thankful for you, Laura! :) <3

  15. Liz says:

    Jack looks like he’s doing great! Happy Dance at my desk today (even though my coworkers do think I’ve gone mad)!!!

    Tinks is being a typical asshole cat. Gotta love it!

    An early Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours Laura. Including all your beloved critters.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

      Tinks is an asshole, but he really likes Jack and this is the first time he hasn’t been hissed at for starting to play with him. I chased him away from Jack while Jack was recovering.

  16. gatorgirl4325 says:

    Look at Jack GO! It is so awesome that he is moving so well!

  17. Trish says:

    Just had my “ahhhh” moment. Great to see Jack bouncing and playing again. Your kitty looked totally bored. lol

  18. PolishSpring says:

    Wet nose-kisses to recovered Jack!

    PS. In not-so-great news, hostess factory has gone into bankruptcy… So I’ve figured it out. You’ve traded Jack’s health for the zombie-apocalypse food, the Twinkies in a deal with the Devil?

  19. Jeffro says:

    What are you doing in an office? How come you’re not making videos?

    Love how calm Tinks is – fully aware that Jack will be back and it just WOULDN’T be cool to get all excited.

  20. SB Smith says:

    Oh, that’s so wonderful to see him jumping around like that to tease his evil sister. He’s obviously feeling great ! I can only imagine how worried you were that he’d never get back to being this active….or just get back to walking !

    Any video with Jack is wonderful !
    More !
    More !

  21. Gary says:

    WOW, Jack looks like he is getting back to his fun self again…much to the cat’s dismay..hahaha
    It really made me laugh to see him do the dodge and weave.

  22. MiMi says:

    OMG two more days…….I almost cant stand it…. Im Hungry! nom nom nom nom nom! Happy Thanksgiving……

  23. Cheryl Lundgren says:

    Love seeing Jack all back to being frisky and dachshundly again.

    The new iPhone must really be something. Your video didn’t suck. LOL

    Happy Thanksgiving to Jack and all.

  24. patti says:

    LOOK! I’m so happy I’m dancing :) Go Jack go.

  25. Nicole says:

    Excellent! Happy Thanksgiving to you, the fur crew and J.

  26. Janie Jones says:

    Tinks may not be impressed, but I am. Way to go Jack!!!

  27. Jess says:

    Happy Thanksgiving. Slip Jack a tiny piece of turkey for me.

  28. This video is way better than the Macy’s Parade. A nice way to start Thanksgiving!

    Looks like a happy kitty in that video, too.

  29. Okay, I wasn’t paying enough attention. Didn’t realize Tinks had the ears back. So, not playing happily? Oh.

  30. CrapHelen says:

    New here! Just wanted to tell u what I am thankful for… that my 83 yr old Ma’ma can still COOK A TURKEY TO PERFECTION…God Im glad its Friday. I just dont even want to look at any kind of food……yum! what a day.

  31. Kim says:

    Dot and Merv! And the three extry cats we had a week ago! Except Merv knows what’s going on and they don’t so they’re assholes.

    Yay Jack and Thelma!

  32. Jill says:

    you are correct, I also have an unnatural need to flip my doxies ear back to factory setting, I will stop in the middle of the crosswalk, to flip that damn ear back into place.
