Jake was our "garden dog". When he was young, he loved to pull out the new plants and run around the yard with them. He eventually pulled out all of our plastic irrigation; consequently, he was our inspiration to change our system to underground sprinklers---good idea from Jake! All this was a result of his joyful playfulness, his desire to engage us and play a joke on us. Jake went on some really long road trips with us (North Dakota!) & was always a great traveler. He was a good brother to his little brother Ollie. He was gentle with our cats. Jake was a great dog to be around, he was perfect for us. We miss you Jake.
