Jake and Joe

Meet Jake! The tiny celebrity.   Hi, I'm Jake. It's a good thing I'm handsome and friendly, because I seem to be getting a little bit famous!

I'm proud to be working with Jason as we learn all we have to learn to turn me into a service dog.   I didn't always have such a excellent life, though.
