The Jakebulance!

As many of you know, Katie and I spend a lot of time driving around the state getting to know you and all the great work you do. In the future look out for the brand new Jakebulance when we come and visit you! And buy an "Adopt A Shelter Pet" license plate!

Why the Jakebulance? A picture of my departed companion Jake is on the back of the vehicle. Jake loved riding in cars. LOVED IT. He used to ride in the back of my truck (with a topper on of course!) and because he got so excited he would bark......for hours. We sounded like an ambulance coming down the road............woof woof woof woof wooof woof woof.  Hence, we now have the Jakebulance to remind us how much better our lives are when we adopt a pet from a shelter
