What is a Wickett?

Wickett was a Jack Russell Terrier who came to live with me after a brief stint in the pound. He specialized in chasing cats, barking at ghosts and shedding on the couch.

Actually, shedding apparently went out of style, so he spent his final years meticulously pulling out his hair and leaving it in neat piles in front of the couch. At least it was easier to vacuum that way, I suppose.

After several years of exposure to computers, Wickett informed his humans that they were behind the times and needed to register a domain for their beloved pet. After a thorough search, he settled upon wickett.org, deciding “What better name than mine?”

Wickett moved on to greener yards and slower cats after 19 years with me in 2009.
