Jake's mom says: Jake is probably the world's most often photographed dog, but he takes it in stride. We got Jake from a Labrador rescue at four, and he has truly become our best friend. He is the mellowest, gentlest, most easygoing dog there ever was. Nothing bothers him. He is sociable with other dogs, but he loses interest rapidly. We call him Gromit because we often get the sense that he's tolerating our eccentricities. He is a wonderful camping and hiking companion. His favorite things are swimming in streams, chasing the stick, pets from girls, playing Frisbee in the snow, and liver treats. He is much pickier than most Labradors, and he is an extremely dignified creature. Noble and loyal, he is truly a wise animal.
