Captain Skippyjon Jones! You can call him Captain for short.

I found a picture of him on the Humane Society website and jokingly sent it to Corey since the dog was missing an eye. For some reason though he kind of stuck in our minds and we started calling him Captain Jack. Yesterday I quickly looked on the website and thought he was gone. Usually chihuahuas don't last more than a day before they're adopted. Corey said, I almost told you just to go get him, but I'm glad he found a home. Later I realized I had just looked in the wrong place on the website, and Captain was still available. So my cousin and I went to meet him in the Petsmart all the way in Deer Valley and it was love at first sight. He was calm even though another dog was barking like crazy, he let everyone pet him, including a baby, and greeted all the dogs walking around politely. What else could I do?

Here he is waiting to go home with us:

Today we hung out on the porch:

Skippyjon Jones is a book that makes all of my classes laugh out loud every time I read it. It's about a siamese cat that likes to pretend he's a chihuahua.

Captain Skippyjon Jones is very relaxed and quiet, and hasn't made any messes. He kind of skips around when he's happy. He has melted all of our hearts. Yay!
