Welcome to the Zeke Chronicles!

May 18, 2012

Hi and thanks for stopping by. This is my new blog and this is my dog Zeke. He’s an almost 10 year old Jack Russell Terrier (some people call them Parson Russell but I think Jack fits much better). We’ve had Zeke since he was just a little fella (about 10 weeks old) and even though I’ve owned dogs all my life, I have to confess that being owned by a Jack Russell was a whole new experience for my family and me. They are truly unique little dogs. I could go on and on about that, but the reason I started this blog was to tie it in with a little column I write called the Pet Corner. It’s appears once a month in Mailmax, a small weekly paper that’s published in my area. The Pet Corner is dedicated to helping pet owners live better lives with their furry kids; but most of all The Pet Corner tries to help whenever possible to draw attention to the many pets living in shelters who would like nothing better than to find forever homes. I try to make readers aware of activities in the area that help support our local humane society and several rescue groups, but sometimes it’s just fun stuff about everyday life with pets. And sometimes Zeke himself takes over and writes a column! (I did mention what a unique little dog he is, didn’t I?) So I hope you’ll stop by often and see what’s happening. I plan to post more pictures of our pets who also include Foofoo, the crazy Pomeranian, and Spidercat, who was once upon a time a skinny shelter cat. I’ll also post some of my older, most favorite Pet Corner columns here. If you love pets, this is the place for you. Hope to “see” you again here soon.
