Dogster stats for Jake-We Love Ya, 1988-2003
5 times 469
I liked being with my mom, sniffin the WHOLE backyard inch by inch. When younger I was a frisbee dog.
Big mean dogs.
Hackey Sacks, loved to eat them. I could fully digest them and process them at will.
Taco Cabana drive thru.
Anywhere I could sniff and pee.
Zach & I use to always want the same bone, we use to each hold an end of the bone and look cute. We would do it for 20 minutes or so.
I was adopted from Houston Humane Society a long long time ago. Then my mom started taking me (and Zach - mom brought him home when I was about 5 years old) up to a dog park every day after she came home from work. Matter of fact at that dog park I saw this guy that I thought would be good for my moma. He was bringing his dog Whiskey up to the park too. So, when he started talking to Moma I walked up and took a pee on Moma's shoe (she didn't even know) .The guy pointed out to her that I was peeing on her and she said I had never done that before (and I never did it again) DUHHHHH. Of course I had not but I had to do something before he stopped talking to her. Well, they have been married now for 9 years. Mission accomplished.
I was my mom's first dog. I was the one that started it all off. Now she has alot of dogs.
I remember when I was employed at Pop's office, that's me getting intervied for the job as guard dog. Wow I was old at the time and sometimes I just forgot stuff till it just had to happen. Thus, one day I just had to potty big. Well, the office manager took a picture to prove it was me so they could fire me w/o any legal ramification. Go figure.
Stankey Jake cuz I stank.

What a special boy you still are in my heart.
My life was going no where pretty fast, but then I found you. I had grown up with dogs in my family, but as a young adult, I had never had one of my own. Long story short, I started dating a guy but the guy couldn't always be around. I decided I needed a dog to keep me company when the guy wasn't around, so we went and adopted you from a shelter.
After that, my whole life changed. I had a 9 week old baby I had to take care of. Something that gave me some responsibility. After you arrived I didn't care about going out or if the guy showed up at our home or not (needless to say we got rid of him shortly after you - best thing we could of done!!) I couldn't go anywhere without you. No way was I going to leave you home alone. We were always together!
All the things that you and I went through & experienced are things that the two of us will never forget - some good, some bad, but things always turned out alright if not great.
We were at a dog park with your brother Zach (another shelter dog that I brought home when you were about 5) and I had been noticing this guy with a yellow lab named Whiskey. One day the new guy and I said hello and stated talking and you know what you did - something you had NEVER done and never did again - you peed on my foot! I guess you were trying to get my attention. I had found a wonderful man, soon to be my husband, and you had found a wonderful man soon to be your Pop. I think Zach and Whiskey agreed with you. We got married, bought our house and the 5 of us were plently happy.
Everyone was getting up in age and Mom and Pop thought a puppy would add some spice to our life. Enter Sprocket - a dog your Pop brought home from a shelter who was a devil in disguise!! After him came Luke (a BC from BC rescue of Texas). Jake, you took it all in stride.
After your Mom and Pop put you to rest at the age of 15 from a massive stroke (we were both there with you and it was one of sadest days I have experienced so far) Stuart and Shooter entered our lives - two boys that needed a home and some love.
We have now moved out to a place that has a really big back yard. What fun you would have sniffing around this place. I have found not all our rescues are as well rounded as you - they all have their issues - but we will always work things through. You started this Jake. Before you, homeless dogs were not something that I thought much about. Now it is all I think about.
Jake, I need to thank you for straightening out my life. You were my first dog love and look at things now. Because of you I couldn't be happier.
I love and miss you baby boy.

Ya know, we as first dogs kinda get an attitude that we are the best around, all the attention and kisses. Soon we realize that there are others that are considered brothers and sisters. More show up and soon we are the older one, the one who is suppose to be grown up. I just wanna be a member of the family. Don't worry about me Mom and Pop, I am OK. Just because you get more doggies it doesn't matter to me. I know who I am and they will learn who they are. All in time. I was sooooo happy where I was and who I had as brothers and sisters, they were great, even though we had our times. Everything set itself and I am so happy I got the chance in my later years. I sit on the other side of the bridge and think alot. I also compare stories with my pals. We all agree. nothing compares with buddies and mom and/or pop.
See ya all soon, licks & kisses from Stankey.
