Jake the Snake

by Sue R
(Deltona, FL)

He loved to:

swim
eat cat food when he could sneak it
try to jump us when we bent down
play hockey
pinch us with his teeth
play
go for walks
be with mommy and daddy


He hated:

flies
cats on his back
the vet
being away from mommy and daddy


I called him:

Bubu
Hop
Hop and pop
Stretchy Bug
My Moose
Land Manatee
Messy Thing
Schnap

Time may go by but I will always miss my big baby. I wish you were here. We miss you, Jake.
