Jordy is our loving 4 legged companion. Jordy came into our lives at just the right time. We had just lost our beloved Sparky and our house was not the same. We had a four legged friend since we moved into our house. None of us knew what to do. I was still in touch with the rescue that we got Sparky from. I had called her to let her know and also just to speak to someone who loved animals and would understand why I was SO devastated over the loss of Sparky. It’s not something I think I will ever recover from. It still hurts and it’s been almost a year. We talked for hours.
Later she would call me back and tell me about Jordy. I called his family and spoke with them in great detail about him. They had bought him from a woman who assured them that he was a sweet calm lap dog. He got along with other animals. Well he got along with other animals (the family had another larger dog), but not the couples cat. They had just gotten him fixed and all his shots. They wanted him to have a good loving home. That night we went to meet Jordy and his family. He was a little over 1 year old. He weighs just 7 pounds 8 ounces. He’s a small peanut! He’s a purse puppy.
Jordy has a personality that is undeniable. He is always wanting to play and will never leave you alone if you are upset. He makes everyone laugh and I think that is his goal in life.. other then to annoy mom with his barking tactics. Because Jordy is small, he barks when people come in the house and he takes forever to warm up to you. He is always unsure of people and while I know his previous family was gentle and loving, we suspect his previous seller wasn’t. Jordy is timid and will run away after he barks. He only has 1 ear (he has 2 ears, but only 1 ear lobe). Everyone that notices loves that about him and it gives him character. He’s a sneaky little guy so he only gets to roam the kitchen when we leave. He’s never happy about being left alone, so he will throw a fit. He removes all the ears from every dog toy we buy. He LOVES daddy and will spend a good hour of his day running back and forth (within 30 minutes of dads scheduled times to come home) to the door waiting for daddy to enter! Sparky loved us all in his own way.. Jordy does too but he by far loves his dad the most and he makes that very known.
Jordy was born August 8, 2012 so he is now 2 years old. He’s still very much in that “toddler” stage in life, but he’s a lot of fun and brings us a lot of laughs. He will never replace our Sparky and we never tried to do that, but Jordy has been a great companion for us!
