Pet’s Corner - March 2014

My mate Jake

For Jake the border collie, the move from suburban Melbourne to Docklands was a walk in the park.

According to owner Amanda Tennent, Jake adjusted well to the move two years ago because he’s always liked enclosed spaces.

“Even when we had a backyard and I’d make him go outside he would hide under a bush,” Amanda said.

According to Amanda, ten-year-old Jake spends most of his time under her bed, but as soon as the magic “w” word is mentioned he’s up and about and ready for a walk around Docklands.

Jake is also good friends with Amanda’s 4-year-old son Brett, who says Jake is “great”.

Brett has high-functioning autism and at times becomes overwhelmed. Amanda said when this happens Jake gets lots of cuddles, which helps to calm Brett down.

Jake loves balloons and he and Brett have great fun playing a tennis-style game where they hit a balloon back and forth to each other.

There’s one other thing that can get the laid-back canine out from under the bed and that’s bubbles.

“I don’t know what it is, but he just loves bubbles,” Amanda said.
