Arrival Story: When my 11 year old Golden retriever named Ben, died of cancer I was heartbroken. He was my life. Because I could not stand the silence of a "dogless" house, I only waited 1 week before I was surfing the net looking for breeders of Goldens/Labs. I was contacted by 2 breeders, one a golden breeder and the other a lab breeder. I chose the Golden breeder first as my heart still belonged to golden retreivers. They had an upcoming litter that was not ready to come home until July. (It was May) I was told we could come and check out the place and decide if we wanted to put a downpayment down on the upcoming litter. So we hopped in the car and made the drive to Moonstone Kennels located in St. Jacobs Ontario, which is around an hours drive. Upon arriving at the breeder, I was told that there was one male puppy from another litter which had not been spoken for. And if I wanted to, I could take him. He would be able to go home in 2 weeks time. Next thing I knew I was putting my money down! We could not choose the puppy ourselves, as others had been waiting to choose their puppies before us. We had to wait to see which pup would be ours. Poor Jake was a leftover!! I still remember getting the picture from the breeder of jake taken that night that said "This is your new love." He was probably the cutest thing I ever saw and even though we did not choose each other, I fell in love with him. He was the one I would have picked. He was the one I was hoping for!
Bio: Jake is named after the town he came from - St. Jacobs. How original huh?
They ran and ran and the tourists smiled
they ran on, for many a mile
They did not whine, but ran with joy
and you could see the smiles on girls and boys
A good days work, the dogs gave it all,
to what reward , not a toy or ball
Just the joy of being a working breed
they did not know, it was really for mans greed .
Would they have given their hearts and worked so hard
if they knew of the grave behind the yard.
And would they still, at sight of man, give a joyous bay
if they knew, in a pit they would end their day.
So, my parents are going away. For 2 weeks to Florida in 3 days and they are leaving me and Teddy at home with the BOY!
THIS could go two ways.
Now, either we will have the run of the house for 2 weeks and get to sleep on all the furniture and mud wrestle and chase the kitty and eat chips and junk food
The BOY will let us out on Friday night and forget about us until Sunday morning!!!!!
Mom is thinking the first scenario will happen, but is a little worried about scenario #2! So worried, in fact that she has asked Grandma to come to the house and spy on us! Oh AND to take us to the doggy park a couple of times a week too!
I LOVE going to the doggy park with people who are not my parents! So fun! I get to run around the parking lot and no obey! woo hoooooo! BOL!
I will let you all know how it turns out!
Hey, go and read Teddy's diary about Flea Treatment night. He is such a weirdo! BOL!
My boy.....my ball crazy twit. My dog park bully. My sweet love.
You came into my life when I needed you most.
4 years ago I was still crying over Ben passing away and you came to the family and kissed my tears away with your precious little puppy licks. And I knew then that I would love again.
You are a show off, and a very smart boy. You love tennis balls....I have NEVER had, or seen a dog as obsessed with balls as you are! I swear you would choose balls over food.
I want to thank you for showing me so much love and giving me those slobbery kisses! I love you so much. I also want to thank you for letting Teddy move in with us without too much damage. (Don't be so jealous, Jake it is not necessary) You KNOW we love you too!
Merry Christmas to beautiful Jake!
And if you check your stocking on Christmas Morning, you may just find a new ball or too......
