    "Near this spot
    Are deposited the Remains of one
    Who possessed Beauty without Vanity,
    Strength without Insolence,
    Courage without Ferocity,
    And all the Virtues of Man without his Vices.
    This Praise, which would be unmeaning Flattery
    If inscribed over human ashes,
    Is but a just tribute to the Memory of
    a Dog.


    Lord Byron wrote that for Boatswain, but it certainly applies to Jake. To think that he was abandoned as pup with a broken leg & went on to do such amazing things. It proves how forgiving these dogs are and how big their hearts are.

    Wish I could find his owner's e-mail adress to drop a line of condolence, I'm sure Ms. Foote has a huge empty spot in her heart right now!! Utah Task Force 1 does not have a website that I could find.

    Don't care what anyone says about the venues and whose is the greatest.
    The real deal is how increadibly smart the breed is, what they can learn, how easily they forgive, and how much they want to please.

    Well said, Mike.

    At the end of the day, they give all they can give. That they still try to give more is beyond words.
