Goodbye, Jake

Today, we had to be put Jake to sleep. We were privileged to take care of him for over 16 years.

Jake was unquestioningly loyal and protective.

A wizard with the frisbee, as a young dog, he could leap over 5 feet in the air and run faster than we could throw it.

Jake was a healthy dog, up until his final year. Even when ailing, though, he always lived up to being our best friend.

We’ll miss him.
