Oh that was worth getting up early to hear. Thank you lady, whoever you are. Jake really needs a new home and I am soooo pleased to know that his wait is nearly over! :4618 :tree

When we went to collect our foster 'child' we had Blakey or Jake to choose from. We couldn't take them both - but look how our fostering turned out!!

Fingers crossed for another failed fosterer eh??!!

me and simba took jake out today for a walk in wardon park leyland ,he settled in car within 1 minute lay down ,when we got there he did look out of window and made funny noise.s .
then he jumped out of the car he was on the lead and we walked all round the outside of every field there !around 1 hour 25minutes ,he responds to his name ,he will sit on request when we encouraged him with biscuit ,he saw many dogs and walked with simba with no problems at all !he did get a bit confused with the ducks he kept looking at them ears up!
then when we got back to the car i opened back door simba got in and lay down ,jake then got in and kept nudging simba with his nose to play!simba just sighed and ignored him ,i said jake sit and then gestured with my arm and hand to lie down and as soon as the car was started he lay down quiet ,on our return to glenys and sams house jake got excited and could't wait to see them and get back in the yard!
a lovely dog ,people are saying age 10! but in his mind more like a age 4 i think!
will make a lovely pet to the lady who is taking him after christmas !
