Birthday: February 16th 2003
Likes: Cuddling, playing ball, and tormenting his brothers Ozzy and Zakk
Pet-Peeves: Pippen and Dakota next door, they better stop digging under the fence, they might get eaten.When Ozzy gets excited and shreiks, animals on tv- real or cartoon, and when we ignore his temper tantrums about going out to play ball for the 7th time today!!!
Favorite Toy: Holee Roller balls, never without them, even sleeps with it. Many a night I've had to search for it because he cant go to sleep without it.
Favorite Food: Jake loves when Mommy makes Chicken Ziti and Broccoli, He stands over your plate staring at it. Orijen dog food, and Pizza crust
Favorite Walk: He mainly stays in the fenced in yard and chases his ball
Best Tricks: Jake used to duck and weave like a fighter, and spin like crazy but now he demands you play ball with him by yelling "RIGHT NOW" and tossing his ball at you. If you say you cant reach it he'll nudge it closer with his nose.
Arrival Story: We were going into this store to buy dog food for our two lab puppies and passed the puppy room. There was Jake getting picked on by a German Shepard pup. He looked so sweet and defenseless( it was all an act. ha ha). They let him out to run around and he was hysterical! We instantly fell in love with him and came back the next day to take him home.We really didnt want to buy from a store but he captured our hearts. It took Jake quite a while to warm up to us and realize he was here to stay. Now he is the most affectionate, cuddly, lap dog. Its not uncommon to wake up in the morning expecting to see my fiance lying next to me only to find Jake with his head on the pillow, nose to nose with me. It was pretty startling to wake up to that mug at first but now I think its adorable. I think he thinks I'm one of his pups or somethings because if I sleep longer than he wants me too, he wakes me by power licking my mouth and nose until I wake. He's like a mom with brand new pups. The bed gets pretty crowded with the 5 of us in it.
Bio: Jake was a beautiful baby, as you can see from the pictures. When he was about 12 weeks old we brought him to a family function where there were new twin nephews. Jake was so taken by these babies, being a baby himself. He kept standing at the couch watching them when all of a sudden he decided to crawl up on the couch and cuddle with them. It was the sweetest thing. It really surprised us. Jake is also extremely active. I've never seen such a trim bullmastiff. He doesnt have an inch of fat, due to his aerobic workout of playing ball a minimum of 5 times a day. When one of us comes home it's a gimmee, we go out to play. But Jake is so slick, if we come home within a half hour of each other, he makes like he didnt get to go out to play yet. So he gets two sessions within an hour. He doesnt realize it yet but we're onto him. Playing ball is the greatest love in his life and if you're too tired, its really late or its raining too hard, he really doesnt give a ****, he'll bark in your face until you give in.Its sounds like he's saying "Right Now!" then "Right now Ball!" Its pretty comical. If you say right now? He'll say it back. As with all three of my babies, I could never imagine my life without them. Jake is my protector out of the 3. When he hears me scream he comes running to defend me.One time someone had left the gate open and I was in a panic because Jake was no where to be found. I was screaming for him and crying because we live on such a busy street I was sure we'd lose him if he'd gone too far. All of a sudden he comes bursting through the back door and jumps on me to see if I was okay. Right then my boyfriend said amazed, "he heard your panicked screams and thought you were in trouble. He'll always protect you".Jake has 3 brothers. Ozzy, a yellow Lab who is almost 3, Zakk, a black Lab who is almost 2, and a human brother Keith who is 11. Jake is named after Jake E. Lee. We are Huge Ozzy Osbourne fans and named all our pets after Ozzy and his guitarists.

My baby Jakey,
Its taken me so long to write this because I didnt think I would ever find the words to do you justice or explain how much love I feel for you. You and I have a very special bond, like no other. I remember carrying you out of the pet store in my arms like a baby, your head over my shoulder. I can still remember how you smelt today. I wonder if you could feel my heart racing, I was so afraid you were going to be too much for Ozzy and Zakk to deal with, Zakk was just a baby himself, two months older than you. You were a bit traumatized from your life so far, not the fun a puppy should be having at your age, taken away from your Mom and shipped to Lambriar for a few weeks, god knows what they did to you there, then put on a truck to NH. Thank God we found you two days into your stay at Seaworld Pet center. You had a big scar on your face, a mark on your side resembling a burn and you were getting your little heiny kicked by a german shepard in your stall with you. When we asked to see you and they let you out you were tearing around the place. you made us laugh so hard we fell in love with you right then and there. Daddy ran home and activated his emergency credit card and we came back to take you home. It took you so long to realize this was your home, you werent going anywhere else anytime soon. Now you realize how much you are loved, you have us so wrapped and get away with sooo much its not funny. I love how you have claimed me as yours, you tell me when you want me to come to bed, you have to sleep so close to me its like a water tight seal. God forbid your brother lies next to me and steals your spot you howl at the ceiling until mommy either moves to lie with you or Zakk reluctantly moves. You are my protector, my snugglebum, my sweet little face.All the destroyed furniture, the constant playing ball, the having to chase you through the house with a baby wipe has all been so worth it. I'm so glad you came into my life, I never want to let you go.
So today is my fourth birthday. Mommy made a big deal out of it, I think she's a little sad because I'm 4 already. She came home from work with a huge box of milkbones, party hats and 3 giant strip steaks. 3!!! She said because Ozzy and Zakk's birthdays were right before and right after Christmas and we didnt get to really do too much we had to celebrate all 3 of our birthdays together. What a rip off. Daddy said Mommy was out of her F'n mind because she spent 17 bucks on steaks for us. Hmmf. I see who loves us more. He said she could've gotten us a pack of steaks for 4 dollars. Is he alright? See we need to stick with Mommy, Daddy's love us and all, but they dont know the first thing about spoiling us.
Because its only about 9 degrees here and Mommy is afraid of the gas grill we couldnt get them grilled. but thats okay they were still YUMMY! Now if I can just get her off the computer to throw some ball I'll be all set. HEy wait a minute.... Where's the cake?????
