Jake <3

This is Jake, he was our old German Shepherd Dog. I met Jake when he was 7, and I was 5/6ish, may have been younger. Jake was my best pal back then. In 06' at the age of 14 years Jake was put to rest. He had developed very bad HD, and could hardly walk anymore. He is now buried under next to our garage, with a garden over where he was.

(Don't mind my badly scanned photos)

RIP Jake....

Awww is that last one a picture of you and Jake?? That is TOTALLY a keeper. What a handsome boy he was, and how lucky you all were to have been able to enjoy him up until such a ripe ol' age.

RIP Jake.

What a handsome man he was.
