Jake turns 5

Today is our puppy Jake’s Fifth Birthday—it hardly seems possible! It was a very busy day around his house today, and he and Sunny and I had to clear out twice. He took it all in his stride, as he always does.

The photo above was taken just before we left the house for the second time today. That whirling mass of blonde fur at the bottom of the photo is Sunny. Jake’s eyes are there—it’s just that the photo was taken before his birthday hair trimming.

Today is also his blood brother Doyle’s birthday. Doyle took over his hooman’s email account to sent Jake birthday wishes; Jake just smiled and said, "Happy Birthday, Doyle!" Or, at least, I think that's what he said…

I know that animals are oblivious to birthdays as such, but they do notice when their people make a fuss over then and give them lots of attention, as we did—of course we did: Jake may have cat and dog sisters now, but he’s still our special boy, who came to live with us at a very sad time and then changed everything.

Happy Birthday, Jake!
