My Jake gave me a good 10yrs. He had thyroid cancer he pass on January 17,2014. The reason why I pick that date is because the doctor seen Jake a week before that and told me he was ready. I didn't want to give him up right then and there so I had a good week with my Jake and the other reason I pick that date is because Jake's human father died on May 17 2006. And Jake was the last gift I got from his human father. I love them both and I miss them both. Someday we will meet again. Until then dad is watching Jake for me. I do have there ashes with me at home because I feel better when their with me. Love Jake's MOM.

On December of 2004 I was in a back of a pick up truck all by myself. The guy that had me wanted to sell me for $100.00. I guess he didn't want me or he needed some xmas money. My mom took a look at me and told dad it is just a bassett hound. My dad said a bassett hound! He got right out of his truck and came over to look at me and before you know it he gave the guy a $100.00 bucks and bought me. He gave me to mom for xmas. Mom took me to the doctor to make sure I wasn't sick and also made me get all my shots. The doctor figure I was born around November 1 . I love being in my new home but I sure gave mom and dad a hard time. I thought dad was going to throw me out of the house. He had to babysit me while mom work. He wanted to give me up because I was bad peeing all over the place. But it was to late mom fell in love with me and wouldn't give me up. She brought me a new sister a cat why couldn't it be another dog like me. I got a long with my sister but I would of wanted another bassett. I still didn't behave they had to buy me a crate so they can train me better. I hated that I didn't spend to much time in it because I always cried and howl. So they just as soon put me outside. But as soon as I came in I did it again. (pee). Then in May 17, 2006 I was with my sister and dad was sleeping on the couch taking a nap I thought but when mom came home and saw dad she started to cry alot. I new what happen dad died in his sleep. I new I had to be the man in the house. I tried to be good I didn't howl all day why mom had to work I stayed in my doggie house until mom came home. Sometimes I was a little bad but most of the time I was good. I feel bad sometimes for mom because I watch her cry a lot but I just stayed with her. I wish I can do more for her but I am just me Jake. I do keep her company a lot and I tried to get her to play with me so the time can pass. I know she wouldn't trade me for the world because I was the last gift dad bought her. My sister is still a pain but mom won't give her up because she is dad's cat. But I am not worry because I know she is closer to me.
