Jake and Wild Creatures: Some “Lively” Fun At Our Dreamcatcher Bed & Breakfast
As much as you might think, dogs are not domesticated. We pretend to be, but put me in front of another animal and watch me. It could be a fly or a bug, a feral cat or a roaming dog. I’ll try to stomp it, bite it, and eat it (as long as it’s really small). I have those desires to be the king of the kingdom. I may be black and white, with huggable qualities and –most of the time- good manners, but never forget how wild I can be.
Jake and the Magic Pan: A Taos New Mexico Hotel’s Unique “Tale”
I’m the official guest greeter at Dreamcatcher B&B, one of the best Taos New Mexico Hotels around. Okay, maybe I’m just the dog greeter. Name’s Jake. I was only 13 weeks old when I moved into the Dreamcatcher. My human partner is John, he’s my alpha. John sometimes gets into the ‘I’m the master, you obey’ mode but not often. When I’m at the door I bark once –it took a while for John to learn my message technique- and he opens the door for me. Good human! Problem with height of door handle.
Prudy and Jake
We knew we had to find Jake, a dog that will be loved at our B&B. And we did right after we bought the B&B in 2009. Jake has become the quintessential symbol of all that is good and welcoming and warm here at the Dreamcatcher B&B. Every guest is enthusiastically greeted by Jake when they check in.
Jakes Arrival at Dreamcatcher
My first and only airplane flight was a blur, it happened so fast. I was young, so didn’t know what to expect. I arrived in Albuquerque, first class in my own cabin, with special handling, by the airplane crew. I was only 13 weeks old, coming from South Carolina. Prudy picked me up and we drove to Taos in the north. It was dark as she drove, I watching the mountains as we home. John said hello when we got to the big house.
