You are likely familiar with Jack London, the author of the celebrated novels The Call of the Wild and White Fang. Now meet another Jack London, a Fox Terrier who lived the last and some of the best years of his life when he—accompanied by his feline sister Naoise—moved from upstate New York to Soho with his dad. When they weren’t jiving and jousting with their new urban friends and acquaintances in Washington Square Park, they were chasing grey squirrels and pigeons—off-leash—in Washington Square Park. A big no-no, but they did it anyway.
Regrettably, a few times the wild-at-heart Jack got separated from his dad—and with him his dutiful shadow, Naoise. Lost in unfamiliar territory, the adventurous old pup, trailed by his reluctant companion, miraculously made it past the Washington Arch on his aging bones, but never all the way home somewhere off Houston Street. Thankfully, good animal-loving Samaritans found them, read their dog and cat tags, and shepherded them home. No fewer than five times were Jack and Naoise reunited with their dad in this way, thanks to their Ketchum Dog Head and Cat Silhouette pet tags.
