What can you say about Jake? He is part dachshund, so he is a hunter. He is so proud of his kill that he will bring it to you and drop it at your feet, waiting for praise for a job well done. Being such a gifted hunter, he is exceptional at keeping the barn clear of mice. My barn cats take care of one barn, while Jake takes care of the Horse Barn in the rear of the property. He loves to be outside, and prefers to sleep with the horses at night, except in the winter. Like other doxies, in the winter, he will burrow under the covers with you in the Big Bed, snuggling and snoring into the wee hours of the early morning. Then it's "up and out" to the barn to catch his vermin!
