Tristan brought Jake over for Father’s Day. Jake is a five year-old Great Pyrenees/Golden Retriever cross. Jake is very well behaved, but all the cats are totally traumatized that we let a DOG!!!, can YOU BELIEVE IT? A DOG!!!, ¡¡¡Un PERRO!!!, UN CHIEN!!!, UN CANE!!!, come inside the house. I tried to get a photo of Spunk’s despising look, but Jake was being too rambunctious and Spunk ran for cover before I could get a photo. We took Jake to The Beach, and he got into the river for the first time, all recorded in the video below.
Jake is giving Spunk a serious run for the money in the modeling department.
Ready to go to The Beach

Jake is one gorgeous dog, and yes, he can model too!
I can see it now: Spunk and Jake figure out that as a team they could make some serious money-Spunk and Jake year-long calendars; T-shirts; scarves; etc., etc. No end to the possibilities…
Happy Father’s Day!
Jake would go for it. Spunk is doubtful. Thanks, Susan.
Beautiful dog! Goldens are rambunctious but such nice dogs.
Thanks, Ann Marie.
You are welcome, Timothy!
Wonderful pictures of Jake. I am surprised that you have a dog. I like all your cat pictures but adding Jake too is even more wonderful. Have a happy father’s day.
Thanks, YellowCable. Jake belongs to Tristan and she only brought him out for a visit for Father’s Day. No dogs and the cats like it that way.
Your “Jake portraits” are remarkable. I can only imagine the trauma that occurred in every language possible. YIKES!!!
I think there was a lot of silent kitty cursing going on. Thanks, Rebecca.
I have always wanted to hear was kitty cursing sounds like. I think there is an element of hissing.
Spunk and Sasha hiss a lot. The other kitties not so much.
Great portraits of Jake. And the video was a delight of his first river excursion. He obviously loved the beach rolls as much as the water.
Tristan hosed him off on the deck when we got home and then blow-dried him while she brushed out his fur. He sat there loving every minute of the grooming. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
OMG! That is an amazing adorable dog!!
Poor Spunkie-Poo 💋!!!
Uncle Spunkle, as Glenda and Gwendolyn call him, has forgiven me. Phew! (Wiping sweat off my brow). Loki is lying on my lap giving me defiant no more dog vibes. Thanks, Resa.
Jake is quite handsome! Fun fun fun in the video!
Thanks, Nancy. He had a good time.
That was so much fun to watch. 🙂
He had such a grand time. Thanks, Gigi.
Totally delightful Timothy and going
to the beach sounds perfect to start our summer solace…happy a joyful day ☺️💫smiles hedy
Thanks, Hedy. Got the spelling right. Our beach is not much of a beach, but, you are right, it was still perfect for solstice.
I would like him a lot, I guess, after your descrpition. Jake is exactly that type of dog, that is my ideal. But I can imagine, he is not after the feline taste. Beautiful fotos!
Thanks, Heidi. You would love Jake.
That was a lot of fun at the river for Jake. Unless it’s a cross, you see clearly the Golden Retreiver in it. I had G.R. myself for years. The like to swim ! I can imagine the reaction of the cats and they way they welcomed Jake – LOL. So, no friends to play with at your place for Jake.
Thanks, Rudi. He’s Great Pyrenees and Golden Retriever.
Epic. These poor cats….
They recovered and Uncle Spunkle forgave me. Thanks, Shey.
I am glad to hear this.
For a moment there I thought, a dog in the cat realm? No way!
But Jake is such a great character!
Tristan has taught him good manners!
Hera says ‘Hi’, by the way!
Love the shots and yes, he’s undoubtedly a great model! 😉
Thanks, Marina. Jake and Hera would have a good time playing in the river together.
I’m sure they would! 😉
So glad the cats got over the trauma of Tristan’s visit, Tim. Hehe!
Jake is seriously gorgeous. Can imagine the atmosphere when he made his entrance 😀
Whatever you’re imaging is correct. Thanks, Couriers.
He looks like a handsome, very intelligent dog. Nothing like a swim and a roll in the sand!
He had a blast. Thanks, Lavinia.
Gorgeous DOG – now we’re talking ha! – excellent portraits by the way.
You would like Jake. Thanks, Brian.
Wonderful photos of Jake! Don’t show them to Spunk 🙂
Spunk is pretty miffed. Thanks, Julie.
Jake is a beautiful creature! Looks like he might have enjoyed the sand even more than the water. I trust Spunk has recovered nicely.
He definitely got more rolling in than swimming. There was a lot of rockin’, rollin’ and shakin’ going on for sure.
I cannot tell you just how glad I am that, though he loved water of all sorts – river, lake, ocean, he NEVER rolled in the sand after!!!
What a handsome fella
Jake is a rockin’ sand roller, that’s for sure. Thanks, Dale.
that Jake is one good looking dog! Love his eyes..
Oh my, Jake is a heartbreaker! My friend recently adopted a Great Pyrenese puppy, they are cute, but get huge! I like the combination with the Golden Retriever! I bet all the kitties were glad he only visited!

I think I’m in love! Jake is seriously gorgeous. 😁
He is. Thanks, Miriam.
He’s so adorable in his beach hat!
You are welcome 💜
