Our second featured famous pop culture dog having a name with 2 words...Black Jack. Black Jack (nicknamed "Jack") was a smooth-haired, black Manchester Terrier belonging to President Theodore Roosevelt and his family. It is said that Teddy's family occupied the White House and lived in it in a more lively way than any president up to that point...the family having a true menagerie of pets which are said to have included dogs, cats, birds and even a pony. Jack was one of the beloved family dogs, truly devoted to family and reserved with strangers. The Manchester Terrier, known for their alertness and fastidiousness, made Jack generally a very well-mannered pet.But Jack had one weakness - he was fearful of cats and enjoyed the "honor" of being terrorized by the family cat at every opportunity she had. Jack was President Roosevelt's first "inside" type of dog and even slept with him, frequently curling up at his feet. The major problem they had with Jack was that fact that he liked to chew on book covers...a problem you can readily imagine when you see the Libraries located in the White House! Though this was a bit of a hiccup for the family, everyone loved him in spite of it, his loving personality saving the day.
