Hi, am Jake, a 17 month old Yellow Lab, who has been at Dioji since I was 4 months old. I am affectionately known as "Mr. Wiggles" by the Dioji staff.
My folks are retired teachers and my favorite words to hear every morning is, "Jake, do you want to go to school and play with your friends?" I sit real tall in the car and strut my stuff up the sidewalk then totally lose it and become "Mr. Wiggles" when I see their smiling faces and get my morning hugs. They all love me and I have a safe place to play, learn, swim and romp with my friends. Mom and Dad call it "socialization" as now they can take me anywhere and I am a gentleman.
I am learning lots of good character traits too: "Kindness" to my friends; "Sharing", ( trying not to be a ball hog); "Self-Control" and "Patience" while waiting for my turn in the swimming pool; and not to "Shop-lift" the cool toys and treats in Dioji's gift shop. All I know is I have lots of fun and they even love me when I get "skunked".
I don't know how they do it, but I always feel like their favorite and I know they make all my friends feel the same way. DIOJI ROCKS!
Sincerely, Jake Belch, a.k.a. Mr. Wiggles
