Jake the Puppy

At the age of 8 weeks, Jake is just beginning to explore his world. Everything is new! There is grass that needs to be rolled in, pine cones that need to be sniffed, and cats that — wait… what is a little puppy to do with a cat that’s bigger than him? View the album.

Jake Gets Bigger

Jake is now 10 weeks old, and he is busy learning new tricks, like how to “sit”, “stay”, and “come”, and how to use the doggie door on his doghouse. His most important discovery, though, is one that will soon become a lifelong passion: Chewing sticks! View the album.

Cat says NO!

Playing with Jake

Jake loves to play games. Throwing a ball, fetching sticks, catching the frisbee… you name it, he’ll play it! View the album.

Jake Plays Frisbee

One of Jake’s most favorite games is playing frisbee. One of his humans flings the bright, blue disc into the air, and Jake runs after it. He leaps off the ground, flips, twists, and catches the rubbery frisbee in his teeth. Then Jake carries the frisbee back to his human to start the process all over again. Doesn’t it sound like fun?

Jake Goes to the Mountains

Jake loves to explore new places, so this visit to the mountains with his family is a real treat. He gets to go hiking on the old carriage trails at Moses H. Cone Memorial Park, and loves every minute of it — especially when he gets let off his leash! View the album.
