Hardships not only test you, but they also reveal who your actual friends are. So when Jake, a 2-year-old Golden Retriever, lost his vision, it was for his roommate Addie to step up and help him get accustomed to his new life. And she did. During the last couple of years, Addie has proved herself time and time again to be both a loyal guide and companion, absolutely worthy to be called the goodest of the good girls.
“We’re so happy we made the choice we did, and so grateful for the many people who encouraged us to do so. Jake reminds us every day that his life still holds great purpose and value in spite of all his challenges,” Kim said. “[He] has a laid back surfer dude type personality. He sleeps on his back with his feet up in the air. Addie, on the other hand, is more of a cuddler. She loves being everywhere we are and is always ready to share kisses.”
When they’re not sightseeing or going on adventures, Jake and Addie live a normal pup life. Their typical day usually starts with a morning walk and breakfast. “We always have a little nap after breakfast. Next, is playtime! We love this time of year where we can play outside together and chase squirrels!”
