Breaking Bam: cheesy title
Bam is not our first Jack Russell and wont be the last. Bo was our first Jack, and he’s the reason why we have Bam today. Bo was so fun and energetic (until he got old & grumpy) which I loved so much. I told Mike we will always have a Jack, so when we lost Bo, a couple months later we adopted Bam from a Jack Russell rescue. We will always look for rescue dogs, I don’t have to tell you why. Here is where we found both Bo & Bam.
If you have a Jack or know one, chances are you’ve noticed they are a highly energetic, intelligent, motivated breed. Bam is no exception, hence this picture from the other night.
Mr. one track mind was told to stop digging for gophers 6 times. Six! This is is “oh snap, I just got busted” face. The breed is frustrating sometimes, they just won’t quit, but that kind of laser focus is why they are so highly trainable. They are so smart, and have incredible personalities if you can find what motivates them, you will teach them just about anything.
So this 30 day challenge is perfect for us as I am pretty sure Bam doesn’t have an off button.
When I found out about the Purina Pro Plan fitness group page, I couldn’t wait to sign up for their 30 day challenge.
Here are the deets about the fitness group page:
SEPTEMBER 30 – NOVEMEBER 13
Exercising is more fun when your dog comes along. So grab the leash, watch him jump for joy, and head out for a walk or run. Do it 30 days in a row to get your chance at a year’s supply of Purina® Pro Plan® Dog Food. You can also win daily rewards, and qualify for additional prizes for reaching milestones along the way.
Over the last year, Bam has been on quite a few adventures. He saw the Golden Gate Bridge.
Hiked to see Mavericks in Half Moon Bay.
Chilled out with me after an afternoon of fetch at the off leash beach in Avila Beach and so much more, I don’t have the space to list.
Now that we’re in the Monterey area, I can’t wait to explore more with my furry BFF. Every day I go to work, I see the off leash dog beach in Carmel and I just know he will love it there. That’s our next adventure for sure!
If you’re interested in joining the cool kids, sign up here and start logging your daily walk or run with your pup. It’s free and bonus points: you’ll be entered to win prizes! The challenge starts today, 9/30 and runs through 11/13.
After 2 straight hours of playing fetch in the ocean, cold & tired…
Maybe he does have an off button after all?
