Jake&Tex's Puppies


Meet Tex: a 12 week-old Australian Cattle Dog and newest addition to our family. Tex really exemplifies the intelligence of the breed- within one week of having him, he already knew sit, down, shake, roll over, and come, and (best of all) already got the hang of house-breaking! His favorite hobbies include following us around, trying to see what he can get away with chewing up, and pestering our other dog, Jake the 3 year-old Black Lab! They tolerate each other wonderfully, even though Tex really likes to bite and hang on to Jake's jowls with his sharp little puppy teeth. We look forward to getting involved in Agility with him in the coming future.

We adopted Jake from the county animal shelter in August 2006 when he was approximately 2 years old. He has been the best, most loyal companion anyone could ask for. His favorite things to do are following us around the house, going for a swim or a walk, fetching the tennis ball, sitting under the table while we are eating to wait for our son to drop something, waiting for a scoop of peanut butter when I make a PB&J for lunch, and (best of all) snuggling up when we need a friend. Jake has been through 3 levels of obedience training and has also earned his Canine Good Citizen certification. Most recently, he has earned the nickname of "Grumpy", as we recently added a 12-week old Australian Cattle Dog pup to our family. Jake has been a patient big brother, although he isn't happy when the pup wakes him up from a nap. As Jake matures even more, we hope to put him to work as a therapy dog and take him to nursing homes so that he can bring even a fraction of the happiness to others that he has brought us.
