Just Jake!


Above is Jake's Most Favorite Spot in our backyard. It is lizard heaven.


 I LOVE DOGS… but then you all know that.  What you might not know is I LOVE Ugly Dogs.  My first dog, Sticky Baby was the ugliest dog in the rescue, I was 8 years old and mother and daddy kept pointing out dogs, I said NO I want that one because he is ugly and no one else will take him.   



At age 11, I lived in campus housing at Clear Creek Mountain Preachers School. My dad was attending school and the school had a no pets on campus rule.
Ginger the pregnant stray appeared at our door one fine morning (just maybe she followed me home) and guess who began feeding her. 6 pups came along and grew and grew.
The dean called daddy in his office and said, you are not allowed to have dogs on campus. Daddy said we don’t have dogs, those are strays.
The dean called Animal control and had them round up all the strays on campus and to keep  them while they gathered dogs, they locked them in a garage on campus.

His favorite spot looks very coosy :)
Nice story, and it's good that people like you exist - your dogs is well taken care of.
Have a great day my friend, just about getting ready for work here at my end.

I can tell Jake likes that spot. Love the way the plant shadows play on Jake's fur.

Did you let the dogs go as fast as they caught them, I think I would have?

Jake has good taste! That looks like a pretty and relaxing spot. Well for him I guess it's play time. :) He looks so happy in his favorite spot! Love the shadows! His stripes make me think of a tiger. :)

I love it, that you love ugly dogs. Those which will not be chosen. Love it!!!

I'm worried about where this story is going though... Don't like to think of dogs left in a garage... -sigh-

Jake does look quite content in his environment. I cheated and read the next post first so I had to come down and read here to get the beginning of the story.

I don't think Jake is ugly. He's unusual looking compared to the types of dogs I've ever been around all my life but that is what I like about him. He's got an unusual looking coat to me. I'm used to furry dogs. Jazz has so much fur I call her a bear cub all the time! lol
