Goodbye Old Friend


This morning we took our beloved black lab Jake to the vet and said our goodbyes. We brought him home nearly 12 years ago at 8 weeks old. He was roly poly and a very happy puppy. He was always friendly, greeting anyone that came within 100 feet of our yard. And although he was afraid of most of the cats in the neighborhood he never hesitated to chase one off if it was harassing his cat, Minou. Loyal is the word that best describes Jake. A good friend and companion, Jake will be missed.
