If I am repeating myself, I apologize. Just want to clear up any confusion between Skip and "Justin." I will try to keep this short. My real name is Skip. In 2005, I gave a speech about the bond that I had with a very special Greyhound named Justin. Training Justin taught me to believe in myself. After the speech, many people thought I was Justin and the dog was Skip. As time went by, I just got used to answering to the name Justin. There is much more to the story, but you get the picture. The couple that adopted Justin understood what we both meant to each other. They have been very kind and went to alot of trouble to keep me in Justin's life. Justin passed away earlier this summer. I am currently working on writing something about Justin for my Facebook page At the track and in the adoption kennel, Justin had a Greyhound friend named Jett. Jett looked and acted almost exactly like Justin. However, Jett had a little something extra. Three spots that shape a perfect (upside-down) Hidden Mickey on his rear end. While I was out of town at a Greyhound Convention in Kansas, Jett got adopted. When I got back home, the kennel staff told me that Jett had been adopted by a family in Orlando, Florida. I flipped out with excitement! The kennel staff thought I had lost my mind. I was thrilled that the Mickey Mouse Greyhound would be near Walt Disney World. Six months later, I got to meet Jett's family for the first time. One of the best friendships that I have ever had began to blossom. They encourage me to go back and finish the Disney College Program, and fulfill my dream of attending the University of Central Florida's Rosen School of Hospitality. Also, they helped me start my own business in Orlando. Oh yes.....and they are the family who turned me into a Florida Gator!!! Both dogs help shape who I am today, and gave me a path to follow. Justin gave me back the self esteem that I had lost in 1997. He taught me to believe that anything is possible. Jett taught me that I have a purpose in life, and I should not reinvent myself when things dont go my way. He taught me to follow through and achieve goals. This is just a brief summary of the name "Justin Jett" and why it is so meaningful to me.
