Sunday Snapshots (of our dog Jake)

Before Elly, Jake got all the attention. He was the star of this blog.

Long time readers will remember that we adopted him when he was 3 years old from Delaware Valley Golden Retriever Rescue. He was so skinny (read: underweight) when we first got him.

Jake and I would take long walks together with no destination in mind. I never had to cut his toenails; the sidewalk grinded them down for me.

Now when we go for a walk, we always stop by the playground so Elly can run off some steam. Last week, for the very first time, I had to cut his nails since he walks on the grass more than the sidewalks.

Though I mostly take photos of Elly now and post them here on the blog, I still take an occasional shot of Jake.

He is getting old on me now. He’s 9 and referred to as a senior in his breed. The white is starting to show on his face.


He’s still my boy.
