Artist's Description

Hi! I’m Jacko, a Fox Terrier/Chihuahua cross

Camera : Kodak EasyShare C195 – taken in my garden in Tarlton, Gauteng, South Africa
.
Hi there! I am Jacko, a Fox Terrier/Chihuahua cross, living at Ga-Sethlong, a beautiful home on a small-holding on the edge of the Cradle of Human Kind in Gauteng, South Africa. I was born on the 1st September 2005, to a healthy litter of 7, with 3 brothers and 3 sisters. This is my story.
.
When I was about 4 weeks old, I remember catching a glimpse of the world for the first time – a confusing array of brothers and sisters and blankets (up until then, it was my Mother’s smell that guided me to her warmth and that wonderful, warm and satisfying taste of milk).  There were strange goings-on, with faces popping in and plenty of oohing and aahing. For a couple of days this carried on, but this was home and was comforting in a strange way.
.
Then, when I was 5 weeks old, in the dark of one night, a hand grabbed me from my Mother’s side, whipped me into a bag and swiftly I was spirited off to a strange and unknown world. I was beside myself! Where was everybody? Where was my Mother?! I cried all night long, getting a couple of smacks in the process, to my utter horror!
.
You can read the rest of my SAD story (but with a beautiful happy ending!) at The World of Jacko
