Happy First Birthday, Jake

Today is Jake's birthday. He's one year old.

He's a good friend, loyal and true. He is sweet, happy, smart, obedient when he wants to be, and handsome (even though Albert has all but destroyed his beautiful black beard). 
He was just a little squirt when we brought him home at 8 weeks old. He was eager to greet us when we first met him and he continues to enthusiastically greet anyone new who comes to the house. He's a social boy, and loves everyone. 

We thought he might be jealous when we brought home his little cousin, Albert, but they've been best of friends. Jake willingly shares everything with Albert. Even now, on his birthday, when Albert was more eager to play with the squeak toy, Jake let him have it without any fuss. 

Happy Birthday, Jake. We love you.
