Jeff's sister Melissa's family adopted a four-year-old golden retriever named Jake. We stayed with him over Memorial Day weekend.
We don't know much about his background. He's from somewhere in the south. Apparently Jake was an outdoor dog who dug holes in the yard because he was bored. So his "family" gave him up. Why do people like that even get dogs?
Jake's mellow and friendly, if a bit clingy. But, that's understandable. He seemed a bit nervous when I first took Spike up for a short visit a few weeks ago. But he and Spike adjusted quickly; they mostly ignored each other.
This weekend, the four of us (including Jeff) hung out on the deck and took walks together.
I wish Jake a happy new life.
