R.I.P. Jake


Thursday, July 05, 2012



We picked Jake up at the shelter right after my daughter got her driver's license. We wondered if it would be hard to convince him to jump in the car. Before the thought was out of my mouth he was in the back seat with his head stuck between my daughter and I. Off we went for home. He had been at the shelter for 7 weeks, waiting for someone to bring him home. The vet guessed him to be 4 yrs. old when we got him. After nearly 12 yrs. with us we had to say good bye today. Very difficult, but he had a good life with us and he was a great dog. He will be missed.

    He was one fortunate boy, to find such love and devotion - what a doll he was. emoticon

    so sorry for your loss, but I know that Jake was very lucky to find somebody to love him and take care of him for many years.

he'll be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for you, and all the pups I've had to let go over the years will be very happy to play with Jake while they wait.
