Celebrating two years with Jake – our adopted dog

Today I’m taking a break from posting about books so I can catch up on writing reviews for all the amazing books I’ve read recently.

However, it came to my attention, that our gorgeous rescue dog Jake adopted us two years ago. He is now 8.5 years old, and loved visiting Dobbies at Cirencester this morning (he loves going out in the car and wasn’t impressed by lockdown either, as he is a dog who loves meeting humans).

We adopted Jake from SNDogs who are based in Swindon, after a recommendation from a work colleague. There are many other dog rescue charities across the UK (and the world) who are looking to rehome dogs, who can longer be looked after by their original owners.

Jake had obviously been much loved but the owners were now no longer able to offer the care he needed (he was very matted when he arrived and had to have a drastic haircut).

He has brightened up our lives and certainly helped us during lockdown, although I think he is keen for the youngest teenager to go back to school and give him peaceful daytimes. He is now my profile picture for my Bookstagram page KarenKisreading on Instagram too.

My daughter drew this for Mothers Day 2020.
