Yo, it’s Jake.

Guys, where is my brother?  I looked for him for days. He was here, and then he fell asleep and they let me come up and see him and it looked like him but it didn’t smell like him. They took him away, I just sorta thought he would eventually come back.

The house is quiet and I’m a little afraid because everything looks different when I’m not following Melvin. I feel small. For the last few weeks I’ve just wanted to be close to doors, in case Melvin comes back home.  She spends a lot of time in the office during the day but I found it hard to be in there without Melvin.  I mean, what’s the point? But in the last couple of days, I have come to check on her and it seems to make her happy.  I mean, even though I love Melvin (SO MUCH), I love her so much too.  When I go check on her, she stops what she is doing and gets on the floor with me.  Now I’m trying out taking a few naps in the office with her.  It’s not so bad.

I will give it to her, she does not give up easily.  Even during moments when I go far away from the office, she yells out ‘I love you, Jakie’. I guess it’s just me and her now.  We go on different walks than we used to, that’s pretty fun.  And some lady comes over and she makes some click noises and gives me treats.  Treats are good. Apparently I’m a ‘terrible watch dog’, Is that good?  I have no idea what that means.  I think it has something to do with the fact that someone can come in the house and I don’t even notice for a long time.  What the…? It’s not my job to greet people. I’m not the butler.

She says we are going to be OK.  I believe her.  She is a very honest person.  When she says dinner, boom food shows up.  When she says potty, boom the door opens. When she says walk, I climb into my buggy!  See that folks, I’m learning words!

We are going to beach next week. She says I will hate the beach because it’s so hot but that I’ll love the beach because awesome people are meeting us there and I am the only dog going so that means I get all the treats and all the attention!  Yipppppeeeeee!  For the trip she bought some bright orange contraption with a handle on it.  She said it’s so I don’t drown but I think it’s so she can turn me into her new purse. Anyway, I’ll be sure to take some selfies of me in my speedo.  I’m a sexy beast and the beach is going to love me and my hot body.

For now, here I am in the office making all her dreams come true. IMG_3954 IMG_3904

  1. This makes me both sad and happy! So glad Jake is learning some new words and you are both finding your new normal. Have a great time at the beach 🙂

  2. Oh Jake… my heart melted into a puddle. I love your wonky little body and I’m glad that you’re spending some time with your mom. Have a great time at the beach and take ALL the love and treats.
