Jake and Uma: Sunset at Beer Can Beach

This is Jake on a sunset beach romp at Beer Can Beach just south of Santa Cruz, CA. He was my dog for 7 years. Now he’s still my dog in my heart, and I’m still his person in his (I hope).

But he lives with a fabulous family in Santa Cruz. I have full visitation rights, but it’s a long way from Austin, TX where I now live and I haven’t seen him in almost a year. These photos make me simultaneously happy and sad.

He’s the best dog. Ever. And, WOW, can he jump.
