Action Jackson: Canine Crusader

Jackson belongs to a friend and colleague of mine, and as far as I can tell, he lives a fairly bodacious lifestyle. Whether enjoying time on his hoverboard like Marty McFly or lounging in the pool and waiting for the babes to show up, Action Jackson is always up to something totally and inherently rad.

Jackson might not be host to the largest frame, but don’t tell him that. I’ve seen him frolic through fields of grass like a Budweiser Clydesdale. He’s even been spotted strutting his stuff on The Church Farm School campus, inviting onlookers and anyone with a hand that is willing to pet him. Attention is his friend, and the two have been good buddies for some time.

I’m not entirely sure how he earned the nickname “Action Jackson,” but I’m pretty sure it has something to do with his capacity for constant movement and his surprising speed. Nicole, his owner, had told me about his speed on many occasions, but until I saw him dart across the Church Farm acreage in true Flash Gordon style, I didn’t actually understand his running abilities–dude can fly.

I’ve also been informed that Jackson has a love for snow. As you can see in the image above, his hops rival those found in most IPAs. Nicole told me that he “hops through snow higher than he is–like a bunny.”#smalldogproblems. No big deal though, for Action Jackson has been taking on the big world around him with an even bigger personality. He shares his house with other pets, even a cat, and so far he hasn’t eaten anyone else, even the feline of the group. Maybe this doesn’t impress most people, but I’m pretty sure that my dogs would have had some snacks by now if they lived with a cat.

And so the legend of Jackson grows: a relatively small but adventurous dog with a heart three times the size his body, and an appetite for speed and rabbit-like movement. What will the action-packed canine conquer next? Niagara Falls? The Nile River? Mount Everest? Whatever he chooses, we will all be mere spectators to the wondrous and lively energy that the young  pup delivers with unwavering force. The rest of us are simply living in Action Jackson’s world–a fact of life he already knows.
