I know for some of you....."beauty is in the eye of the beholder" may apply here. But to me...Jayce is incredibly beautiful...inside and out. I love all 3 of my dogs but have a very strong bond with Jayce. Long story as short as possible...Jayce was to be a therapy dog of sorts. I was going to use him at school with my special needs kids and then with regular ed kids to talk about how kids are kids...regardless of the differences in their appearances.
Didn't really work.....Jayce became too bonded with me and wouldn't really interact well with others. The name Jayce means...."one who heals". At first, I was disappointed. Later, I realized....Jayce was much smarter than I. As hard as it has been for me to admit it, I needed him....just for myself.
And just so you know....I'm not one of those weird people who dress their dogs and think they are their kids. Jayce has NO hair, except the small amount on his head, his tail, and his feet. He gets very cold in the airconditioning AND he wears a belly band because despite my BEST attempts at housebreaking he still marks. And so underneath his cute little pants....he has on a cheap diaper tied on with a bandana.
Before you start telling me I didn't try hard enough, remember I taught special needs Kindergarten kids for years. You can't find tougher folks to potty train. Jayce takes the cake! The truth is that cresteds are a primitive breed who just naturally mark their territory. Translation??? I'll be buying huggies forever because around here......Jayce is the MAN!
