Hey there, it’s me, Jake. Hope your life is as happy and fun as mine.

These days, my boy pal Leonel and I have worked hard and I have mastered the command sit and am working on down. I’m still struggling with focus, but that butterfly that keeps distracting me—I have named him Super Fly. Clever, huh? He tries to sit on my head, and what would you do if something a quarter the size of your head sat on you whenever he wanted? Distracting, huh? But I am working hard every day.

The pretty guide dog, Treasure, came to see me today. She is a girl, and I am a boy, but she is a lot taller than I am. She is a blond thoroughbred Labrador and very sure of herself. Well, maybe we will just be friends. She knows a lot of commands—kind of makes me look bad.

My trainer, Tomas Durante, has begun working with Leonel at his house a couple of days a week. Leonel’s learning to be Tomas’ dog-training assistant. He not only learns more about dogs in general at Tomas’s house, but Leonel earns pesos too. I think he likes the part about pesos best. He is doing pretty good. He works with me and Tomas on Wednesdays.

Before you know it, I will be graduating. I will let you know when so that maybe you can join me on that special day.

I was recently told that some brother and sister dogs are in need of fostering. Their owner passed away. They will join the Heart to Heart program when the next spot opens up, since they have seen a vet, had shots, been neutered and spayed, and have even gotten their teeth cleaned. The female is shy, and her brother is happy-go-lucky.

If you would be willing to help out for maybe four to six weeks as a foster owner, you would be saving two doggies’ lives. Makes your tummy feel good, don’t you think?

Call Marie at 152 3383 or Patti at 152 1702 if you can pitch in.
