About Jack

Jack (born April 11, 2015) is named after the late Dean of Admission, Jack Blackburn. Like CavDog before him, Jack loves students and is an enthusiastic greeter during our Days on the Lawn open houses. Most people don't realize that Jack is not CavDog now that he is grown, so we have mostly dropped his original name, CavPup.

Jack's favorite toys are sticks and his favorite thing to eat is anything that fits in his mouth, which includes sticks, socks, leaves, and treats.
