Just 36 hours ago, when a tropical storm was sloshing through South Florida, our very own Jake found a new niche for himself as an amateur weatherdog. To quote this enterprising wire-haired fox terrier, "We don't want to take anyone's job in these difficult economic times -- but, looking at the most recent weather map, we don't see any signs of the heavy rain and winds predicted for the next 24 hours here." Turns out he was right!!
In honor of Jake's outstanding service to the meteorological world, I want to send him a big "At Work" Pawlimpics shout-out. While his new-found career came after the deadline for submitting entries to the contest, we simply can't let his talents go unrecognized. We all now know who to turn to in the face of threatening weather and those scary thunderstorms!
