Happy Triday from Jake

Jake became a Therapy Dog later in life then most. Throughout his life, people always commented on his disposition saying he would be perfect for therapy work.

Lori, a single mom of two kids (Joshua 11 and Allison 9) with a small business to run just didn’t see any reason to add more to her plate. Jake was born in Truckee on February 7, 2004. He and his brother Max came to live with her family 7 weeks later. Jake did everything with with the family and quickly became Lori’s constant companion. He was often with her even at work. Again, people often commented on his wonderful disposition and caring manner.

Then on August 27, 2012 Jake began to limp on his right front leg. The next day, the vet confirmed the worse: Bone Cancer. The leg would have to be amputated. The following day Jake became a tripawd. His road to recuperation was a slow one, but he flourished.
