There of course have been some adventures since Jake joined the family. The biggest excitement was when he got into something he shouldn't have and became violently ill. Suzanne took him to the emergency room where he was given fluids via an IV. Suzanne and my mother had a quite hilarious "who's on first" conversation about this as Sue told Mom all about taking her "baby" to the hospital. They apparently had quite an animated discussion about whether or not the IV had been inserted into a vein. It wasn't until Suzanne said she wasn't sure that they would been able to find one under the fur that Mom realized they were talking about the puppy rather than Drew!
Like the doting aunt that I am, I could tell you all the truly adorable things about Jake, like how cute he is when he runs across the yard with his little legs scrambling or how excited he gets when he sees you after a long night's sleep, but that would be as bad as someone showing you home movies of their family vacation. What I will tell you, though, is that I'm glad Suzanne trusted her instincts that Jake would be a good addition to the family. Now the only question is what to get him for Christmas!
