Melvin lives with his stalker.
Jake follows Melvin everywhere. If Melvin runs and barks, Jake shuffles himself into a semi-run/drag and follows along. If Melvin shakes, Jake shakes. If Melvin drinks water, Jake is suddenly parched. I’m just glad we don’t live next to a bridge.
I have to give it to Melvin, he lives through some pretty creepy moments with grace and understanding. If Melvin lays down, Jake waits a few minutes (it’s very calculated) then walks over in a ‘oh don’t mind me’ sorta way and sits down next to Melvin.
The thing is, Jake is not a silent or hidden stalker. No, he sits right in front of Melvin’s face. He then waits for Melvin to fall asleep. Yeah, not scary or creepy at all. Then one of two things happens.
- Jake will slowly lower his body in the wrong place, like directly on top of Melvin’s face, or across his torso (why, Jake? Why?). If that happens, it’s over. Melvin gets up and moves as far away (sometimes to higher ground) from Jake as possible. Jake then waits 4.7 minutes and goes to start the process over.
- Or, Jake lowers himself in a less threatening way and Melvin allows it and joy rushes over Jake.
How hilarious, and yet, upon further reflection, very touching. I love that after all that sitting and waiting that Jake did before finding you guys (the perfect family) he how has his very own Melvin to creep on and never be lonely again.
Yes, his years of training have really paid off! He has much better things to sit and wait for now!
This is so stinking cute. I laughed out loud thinking about Jake waiting for the “perfect moment” to go lay beside his big brother – hilarious! What a character he is!
He would stalk you the same way! He does nothing half-ass!
This is really adorable!
They are quite the pair!
The ultimate odd couple! I love it. Our past two fosters were just as creepy with Rufus!
Maybe your former fosters and Jake went to the same Stalker’s Seminar!
