Happy Tail for Jake!

Jake has been the perfect fit in our home. I had been looking for a companion for my border collie/lab cross, Alice, and Jake fit the bill. 
He got really comfortable here very quickly, much more quickly than I expected. The first couple of days he was like glue on me. I could barely turn around without running into him! But within days we hit a turning point. He finally realized that since Alice is allowed on the sofa, so is he. Now, in the evening, I have my little corner of the sofa and the two of them often take up the rest. A little more than a week after he joined us, it’s now not unusual to find Jake on the sofa by himself during the day resting his head on the pillow and lying on his back with his legs in the air. It’s pretty easy to see he’s comfortable here! Alice is usually found within a foot or two of her “big brother.” And though Jake is a senior, Alice gets him moving, too, by squeaking toys or showing him how we play hide and seek with treats.
Jake has definitely an indispensable part of our family.
