Jake - Passed to theRainbow Bridge 10/17/05
- I am so very sad to report that Jake passed away in his sleep on
10/17/05. Jake was one of the most wonderful bulldogs that I have ever
had the pleasure of meeting in my lifetime. He was so very sweet
and loving. There was not an animal or person that Jake met the he
did not love. He was dealt a horrible hand in life, a hand he
certainly did not deserve. I loved and cared for for Jake and in
the short time I had with him I loved him....you could not help but love
that sweet gentle boy with the cutest face ever. He leaves his
girl Dolly behind and she has been sad but is doing better now.
10/17/05 - I will do an update later, but just wanted everyone to know that my bully Jake passed away in his sleep last night.
- Times goes by so quickly seems I have missed a few updates on
these 2 darling dogs. Jake and Dolly...what can I say? They are
still as great as ever. jake has put on 4 lbs since he has been
here..it is tough going with him and a lot of work but worth the effort
for sure. He is such a sweet boy, just an absolute love. He
likes to play with his ball and you have to watch him because he likes
leather items like belts and shoes :o)). He is doing very well using his
stand for eating as well. He is too funny, he know this is where
he eats from so he stands in front of it and waits for you to pick him
up...heaven forbid mr spoiled has to jump up to put his front paws up
there by himself :o))
9/1/05 - Dolly, 10 yrs old, and Jake, 6 yrs old, are a pair of English Bulldogs that were brought into our rescue a couple of weeks ago from a shelter on LI.
Both have about the sweetest dispositions that I have ever seen in any English bulldogs.
Dolly is approx 10 yrs old was a bit underweight and a bit on the shy side when she came in but it didn't take but a day or 2 for her to flourish into the sweet irresistible girl she is today. She is eating wonderfully, has put on a couple of pounds and is terrific.
Jake is, what can I say, he is just a doll baby. Everyone that meets him just falls madly in love with him.
Right now he is nothing but skin and bones (literally)/ he had kennel cough which is cleared up. He has Mega Esophagus, in which the food he eats can lie in his throat and be regurgitated at a later time. Thanks to a volunteer of ours he has a food stand in which he must stand on his hind legs to eat and he must eat 5-6 very small meals a day. He is doing well and very slowly but surely putting on some weight....this is a good thing as he is also heartworm positive and needs to undergo treatment but can not do so until in better shape.
We want to see Dolly and Jake go to a home together as they are very bonded. They are a wonderful pair of dogs and would do super in any home at all.
Please think about adding them to your home, you won't be sorry.
