Jake the Weather Dog
It’s amazing how a dog will show up in your life and just lead you to a new level of understanding and yes,even a new level of frustration. I have thought it would be cool if dogs could talk, for some limited amount of time, so we could get to the important stuff about them quickly! But, alas, we can observe, change the situation, yell, bark, swear, and sit back in contemplation about all the stuff in our lives that we have little or no control over.
Jake is one tough customer. I am going with his current care taker to talk to Dr. Hunthausen this coming week. It seems his care taker has done everything to make this crazy dog more comfortable…but, we are not there yet. He remains a puzzle with no easy fitting pieces. Here is the list of what Cindy has tried so far: A thunder shirt, a soft, but strong kennel, lots of blankets, a garage, several walks a day, anxiety meds, and, as much attention as she can give him without losing her job.
I’ve created a painting about him. We will be auctioning it off on face book to help pay for his expenses . Also, I’m sure I’ll have some helpful advice to pass on. Check back!
The adventure continues…..
