Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

-Melody Beattie

This is Jack. He's rather camera shy and especially so as I added an aquarium background right before our photoshoot. He's doubled in size the twelve years he's been here with us. He used to hibernate through the winter which freaked everyone out! He's acclimated and no longer has a heating pad under his house. He'll stretch out his neck to watch me when he's waiting for his food dish. A lovely fruit and vegetable salad with some choice canned dogfood on top. He does have favorites and he does refuse some of his foods, but like a bird or a cat, he needs to see and smell it often to consider a taste test.
