John is always telling me that he’s not anyone’s favourite. Obviously I love everyone in my family in different ways. John knows there is this special bond between Erin and I that he can’t compete with sometimes. Just recently Erin has been really needy because she’s been ill and has only wanted me and John has felt left out. I thought I’d write about John’s best friend Jackson!
John may not think so but Jackson really does love him best.
Jackson has had a few issues with figuring out who the pack leader is, especially since I have been on maternity leave. He wasn’t used to me telling him what to do all day. However, I think he does know now that John is pack leader (only when it comes to Jackson)!
This crazy dog absolutely adores his human daddy. He certainly doesn’t miss me as much as he misses John. If I go out and I don’t get the same reaction when I get home. Jackson waits for John to get home at the window like a soppy little sod and sulks until he gets home.
John is the one who plays with Jackson most of the time. He also takes him to the park twice a day or for walks.
Sometimes John whinges about Jackson, saying how annoying he is. I know he loves him really though. The thing is, Jackson is an absolute maniac. Sometimes it’s super annoying but most of the time it makes us love him even more.
I probably shouldn’t have taught Jackson to ‘lick Daddy’s head’ but it was so much fun. I didn’t really think he would be able to learn how to do that on command. We don’t do that anymore though… unless Erin is in bed and Jackson is being particularly playful.
There is no denying that John is Jackson’s best friend. We got Jackson his own sofa bed as we now don’t let him up on the couch because of Erin. However, Jackson still chooses to sleep in the arm chair which is directly next to where John sits on the couch. Soppy git!
Do your pets prefer one of you to another?
