One-Eyed Jack

Remembering Judy Wolfe’s wonderful friend Jack. “I rescued Jack as a senior dog from Best Friends about two and a half years ago. He brought so much joy to my life. He was friendly with everyone. He loved kids, other dogs, street vendors, my apartment building staff and neighbors. Not a walk went by that someone did not come up to us to chat. Many New Yorkers would yell out ‘WISHBONE’ when they saw us (you might have to google that one). New Yorkers have a soft spot in their hearts for dogs, especially adorable one-eyed dogs. The one flaw he had was his insistence upon rising before daylight. We would traipse out into the dark of night and almost had the city to ourselves. Jack also adored my two cats, Audrey and Roberta and they adored him. The house seems a lot emptier now and it will take awhile for a new normal to emerge. I have already been asked if I am going to get another dog. It is too soon to even contemplate that right now but if I do – I will adopt another senior dog as they need homes, aren’t nearly as cute as puppies but it is the right thing to do. He was a very good boy.” Remembrance donations by Judy Wolfe, Susan Ferla, April Rivkin, Veronica Gallagher, Kathleen Salmieri, Berni Leahy, Peter & Mickey Bickford and Nora Beirne on behalf of all of Judy’s friends in the Animal Department of the Central Park Zoo, December 2018.
