Jake was a complete terror this weekend. You might be saying ‘wow, that seems harsh’. Trust me, I’m downplaying it out of unconditional love for him. I’m not sure what his problem was.
When I’d call his name, he’d ignore me. When I’d go left, he’d go backwards. I spent time staring at him just so I could find something to give him positive reinforcement on. That moment never came.
It was so bad that Melvin, after nine months of peaceful toleration of Jake, even caved. Jake was tormenting Melvin while he was trying to sleep and all of sudden…the lion was awoken. And it was not the baby lion from the Disney movie. I had a front row seat and I have to admit, It was pretty amusing. Jake look terrified, the last thing he expected was for Melvin to spring to his feet and issue a stern, clear and concise, verbal warning. Jake sulked away to lick his emotional wounds.
This is Jake, post Melvin correction. He’d wait for Melvin to clear the stairway before he’d come downstairs…
Then, as all families tend to do, we rounded out the weekend with a group hug and moved on. And Melvin allowed one of Jake’s dreams come true. Butt-to-butt snuggling with his brother.
Omg, that first pic is priceless!!!
I know! And he did it a few times so I had to laugh at him even more!
Hilarious!! That first picture is amazing! lol 🙂
He is almost human!
I love how their little nubby tails are crossed.
I know, i was busy doing stuff and I came in and it had graduated to that!
Jake looks like a cute little potato next to Melvin. Pug was in rare form yesterday too.
Me thinks Pug and Grumpy need a hotline to each other to work it out on their own!
The sulking picture is priceless, but the butt to butt photo is a keeper!
I know! Brothers!
You should blow up the sulking photo and frame it. Seriously. It belongs in a gallery. It says so much. Also, the stubby tail snuggles is just too much…. seriously.
Well I think I know what I’m getting you for Christmas!
Love the sulking photo! He’s such a personality. Does he do the “if I’m not looking at you, you aren’t giving me commands” routine? I can imagine him being quite the master at that! 🙂
Yes! He is so obviously ignoring me. If he could talk he’d say so!
EEK – I love these guys…they crack me up!!
They love you back!
So funny! I wonder what got into Jake? At least it all ended in a big round of love, and you had a few good laughs, at Jake’s expense, but that’s ok! By the way, love your new banner photo.
I think he was just having some moments! Luckily his family loves him!
I can feel the sulk!! 🙂
Yes, he personifies it!
Thanks for another good laugh!
Thank YOU for reading along!
OMD – I can’t look at that first picture without cracking up. Holy cow is he good at sulking. It takes a lot to tick off a Lab. Not sure what got in to Jake but I’m guessing he’s not gonna do that again for a while. 😉
Exactly! For Melvin to react, you know it got bad!
Oh goodness, that Super Jake collar is awesome!!!! I busted out laughing with him at the top of the stairs…those two are such a pair!!!! 🙂
You do look grumpy, but cuuuuuwooooowoooooote!
