One of my best furiends, Jake, was just visiting this week. We knew each other when we were really young. We both had a sister then, but both girls have passed to the Rainbow Bridge. The four of us used to visit at each others houses, go for walks, and go out on their boat. Jake & Rachel used to jump off of the boat to go swimming! Annie & I only went swimming when our pawrents were in the water and we wore life jackets. Jake & Rachel were the first pups to meet Annie. Right after we picked up Annie from the breeder, we met them at the boat dock & they sniffed each other out. We didn't go out on the boat with them though, we went home so Annie could see her new house.
Jake used to be a therapy dog in Florida. He is SO sweet. He loves to sit next to people and hold his paw up. He could sit for hours so that the nursing home people could visit & pet him. Finnegan was really jealous of him and tried to keep him away from mom & dad. I didn't let Finn get in my way, after all I've known Jake longer than Finn has been alive!!! Jake is 11 and I'm 13, and Finn is only 3 - silly boy. He'll learn. They come to visit every year. Last year they came during summer and swam in our pool. That made Finnegan want to swim. This year Winston got to meet Jake. They seemed to get along just fine. And Molly gets along with everyone. So except for that silly Finn, all was great.
Jake & his family are going to Alaska next!!! Good thing he's a big dog, he won't be scared of those big animals. Dad says they'd like us for a snack!!! Snack!!! Guess we'll stay home and wait for Jake to come back & tell us about it.
