Welcome!! This is a journal about my dogs and what we do.
All my dogs have their own websites that you can see by clicking their photo in the sidebar. Jake's site is the most active right now with new posts.
This site is a work in progress and has become a source of information. When asked a question I would write a post to answer
it which led to a post to summarize the questions. Check the sidebar for this type of information.

Enjoy the visit and feel free to email me at

Jake’s Antics….

…I couldn’t make these things up…. 

One evening in a very short span of time Jake broke out of Brita's crate in the van after eating and came to the front door to come in...just walked up on the porch and sat in front of the door as if it was the normal thing to do. 

He then walked into the kitchen and helped himself to a carton of 18 eggs which I gently took away from him as he trotted by me to settle in the living room.  He gave them up with no problem and again went into the kitchen and took a tomato from the counter which he proceeded to bury in the couch.

One day I was taking a shower after working in the yard and I turned the shower on and went to get clean clothes.  When I returned Jake was in the shower trying to catch the water.  I turned the water off by turning the faucet to a horizontal position to the right and he looked and me, looked at the faucet, looked back at me and then put his nose under it and lifted it up to start the water running again!  Yep, I was laughing!  I need to set that up with a video camera!

And now, when I go to the bathroom, he comes in, hops in the tub and flops down behind the shower curtain where he stays until he hears the toilet flush.

And then there was the foam from the dog bed in Olivia’s crate….

Random Thoughts

  • Why is it that I’ve had bamboo shades on the patio door for 5 years and no dog has touched them. Yesterday, the first day I used them to keep the sun out of the kitchen temporally, they were in Jake’s way so he took care of it. Hhhhmmm.. do I replace them or not?
  • Who knew that the water bucket that Jake carried on my bed last night had water in it…. And you notice things like that when you get IN bed.
  • I really need to be more careful and make sure the refrigerator door is closed before I walk away. Why would he pick the mustard container? And why would he take it, again, to my bed to chew on?
  • So now when Brita and Jake run up and surprise me I’m not sure who is who… Several times Jake appeared and I thought it was Brita. I can’t imagine having 2 black dogs the same size… how DO people tell them apart?
  • We have started the “EXCUSE ME” program. Jake thinks he should not have to move out of the way for anyone. Hello… MOVE when I say MOVE!
  • Jake is so skinny and I’m trying to feed him more, Who is putting on weight? Not him.. Brita… But then she DOES munch on yummies outside!
