Ode to Jake

There once was a dog named Jake
A better mouser no one could make
he started out as a runt and
became alpha dog of the hunt
on a hike he was always in front.

He was a champion beggar for food
fireworks always upset his mood
he ran until his paws ached
he loved his fur to get raked
but be careful not to get "Jake'd"

He loved to go to work with his master
his fast was even faster
He was a little too smart
Even though we are now apart 
you, Jake, will remain in my Heart.
