Beware: This post has Fun, Surprising and Sad news in it!!

For the Fun News: This is my cousin Jake. I went to stay at his house last week while the parents were off traveling the world. Jake and I just hang out and chill together...we are both chillin kind of dogs. I am 7 and Jake is 10 yrs old. Just 2 guys hanging out!!
The week was going pretty good for us. We both bark at the dogs behind them through the fence though, chill in the grass and on the deck in the sun, have food and water whenever we want it etc. I I have pool water to play with and a hot tub to try and get into. It doesnt really get much better than that.  Until......The surprising news:
On Thursday night they bring home this little pip squeak and apparently her name is Piper. Little Bailey who is 4 has been begging for a puppy and NOW they decide to get her one? really? Shes about 10 X 6 X 6.
Here is Jake checking out little Miss pip squeak.
Me and Piper had a stare down but I didn't growl at her...well not on first meeting at least. I cannot lie.....but there was growling!! Ive only growled at 1 other dog....and that was Jessie.
Piper stole Jakes big dog bone....We both just stood and watched.
Sunday night when Mom got home...I was jumping and going beserk and she pets me and says Hi Oreo and then I hear....Aww look at the puppy. Let me hold the puppy. WHAT!! Seriously!!! Suddenly I am chopped liver!!!
Then to make matters worse...the Pip squeak HAD to come home with us Sunday night cuz we were baby sitting Bailey!! Upon arrival...she stole my stick bone...
My little round bone...
And my bigger bones!! Can this really be happening? I even had one of MY bones and little miss pip squeak comes up and gets in my face and tries to take it from me!! Aww Sorry charlie...but not hence growl...growl...snap...snap. Know what? I got yelled at!!! I can see this little miss pip squeak is gonna be nothing but trouble for me!!
Everyone thinks she is all cutsie cuz she is so small and oh she hops when she runs, rolls and flips over and she loves to untie my dads shoe laces and still she is all cutsie and they all eww and aww over her. Double Seriously!!!  This little Miss Pip Squeak can do NO wrong...Im not kidding!!
But I am trying as hard as  guy can to be nice to her.  But its awfully hard!!
Now comes the bad news.
Sunday night, Jakes mouth was swollen and he was drooling a lot. His parents were concerned and thought that maybe he had been biten by a bug or something. They took him to the Vet DR Monday afternoon. They did some tests and he had throat cancer. By Monday night he was having a hard time eating. Well....his parents knew what they had to do.
Tuesday they got him a cheeseburger and it took him over 5 min to eat it. The kids were pretty shook especially little was his dog. He was soooo sad!!
Jake was loved by his whole family and all the other grand kids. Some of them came to see him before it all ended. Addi doesn't know yet but I am sure that she will be looking for him next time that she goes over there!!
We will all miss you Jake and he is running with Jazzi  and his other dog cousins now and I'm pretty sure that they are enjoying tacos!!
Run free Jake!!

    Oh my word Oreo - you were gone so long I thought you had furgotten us - but all the time you were dealing with mischief and mayhem and then menosukhi moments... I am so sorry to hear about Jake. That big C is a cruel critter. I am glad the furmily have a little pipsqueak to help fill the gap a bit - though it sounds like you will need to have a paw in getting her trained up; you have every right to tell her who is senior, so don't you worry too much about the peeps getting fizzed... they'll telling her themselves soon enough!!! Glad you are back home with your peeps...and love the bloggy make-over! hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx
