MangoMinster: Jack, Adventure Animal!

A-roos to Yous!
It's me, Jack, with my entry into MangoMinster's "Adventure Animals"!
I'm an adventurous guy, and love having real adventures and cyber ones, too. So lets start off with me impersonating one of my adventure heros- can woo guess who?
Ha-roo roo roo!
I've tried to follow Indiana Jone's example to be brave in the face of danger, resourceful and quick-thinking in the moment....
and to always rescue my buddies.
(I braved Hurricane Irene to rescue my Pengie)
Living on the Atlantic coast is great for seaside adventures.
Exploring the beach is always an adventure -
woo never know what you'll find on the beach!
My favorite part of the coast is the rocks -
sometimes we walk w-a-a-a-y out!
I love to look into the craigs as the waves come in & out
We have lighthouse adventures, too.
My sis Tori told a really good story about a lighthouse adventure,
and while dad relaxed at the top of the rocks...
...I ventured up and down the steep craigs,
and I don't want to lose my grip - its a steep drop - really!
Here's more lighthouse adventures - this one's on the next island over, its called Beavertail Light.
Other island adventures include trips to the windmill.
...where I get to visit friends...
...and dig for new ones.
I love to befriend other 4-leggers on my island adventures...
but woo do have to know when to keep your distance!
Some of my friends live in far-away places.
Going to see them is always an adventure!
and even met Khyra at the TOTTSHR Hike in '09
and I was a Sled dog with my friend Moon there, too!
Sometimes mom sends me on cyber-adventures,
like Pengie rescues at the North Pole:
I love pengies, I even rescue them here in Ri
...Crossing the dangerously slippery glacier between me & Pengie....
battling snowstorms till I find the Pengie in distress...
Sometimes I go for historic adventures, too.
In NH, I discovered a real piece of Sled Dog history --
This year's Siberian National was dedicated to Shorty, the woman who pioneered Siberian sled dog racing in NH- this is her training kennel. Please check out the posts- I learned lots of interesting stuff there.
I'm proud to pose in front of a monument to sled dog heros!
and check out this boulder in NH not far from the kennel!
I hope I've given woo a glimpse of my adventurous life.

Sometimes adventure awaits in my own backyard,
sometimes its across the world, but wherever it is,
I'm Jack A-roo, Adventure Animal!

A-roos to yous,
Jack A-roo

We salute your choice of a role model, Jack. Indy is one of mama's all time favorites. You seem just like him, except you're probably not even afraid of snakes. We especially loved your polar adventures. Good luck in the competition.

Jack you are definitely the canine equivalent of Indiana Jones. We were especially impressed with your time on the sled dog team and penguin rescue!! Good luck in MM2012.
