2004

We had a very busy weekend......we went to Ottawa for the OKC shows at the end of May and sandwiched in the middle on Saturday evening was a wedding in Montreal!  But we did it all.

 
But the one who really did it all was Jake.  Jake, who will be 14 this year managed to wow the crowds with his joie de vivre, showmanship, and his movement.  There were 20 veterans entered - evenly divided in 7-10 yrs and then 10+ yrs.  Some very lovely veterans in the ring all with proud owners at the end of the lead.  Watching them can and does bring tears.  I must say that when I went in the ring with Jake I was very proud of this grand old guy.  He showed with all his heart as he always has and you could tell he loved every minute of it.
 
In our age group there were some lovely dogs/bitches who moved beautifully around the ring.  Since we were last in line I could watch them all.  Then we went around and Jake just turned it on.  It brought tears to my eyes to see this dog give it his all.  Strong and true he moved out in front and you could tell he was enjoying it all.  We came to a stop and he stood proud and tall with all fours planted just right and his ears and shining dark eyes alert and waiting.  What a moment!!
 
He won the 10+ age group - and I was proud.
 
Then we went back in with the 7-10 winner - a lovely Sheltie.  Again we went around and up and back and then around again.  You might well imagine how I felt when the judge walked up to us and gave the Best Veteran ribbon to Jake!!!!
 
Again I was proud .... and tears fell from my eyes over this wonderful dog who never quits and who only has known one way to do things .... with his whole heart.

2007

It is with great great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Jake - multiple BVIS BIS A/C Ch Kognac's Stars for Jungle Jake Cdn CDX Am UD HIC - at 16 yrs, 8 mos, 16 days. 

He was a rock, a patient dog with puppies with whom he loved to play, a patient dog with children who would hold on to him and take their first steps, a dog who would patiently sit by my side of the bed when I was not quite awake and put his paw in my hand ..... a dog with a wonderful sense of balance in life, a dog with great heart.

 He changed and graced our lives with his presence.

Sadly and with much love for him.....

 Ingrid and Jay
