My name is Jake Pogi Osinski and I am an Adorable Doodle, Service Doodle, and Therapy Doodle. My middle name was added when I moved here to Michigan. Pogi Boy Osinski was the name of my big brother. He was a handsome and lovable yellow Labrador Retriever. Sadly he passed away before I came here. This was sad times for mom and dad. Pogi Boy was loved and cherished and had so many friends around the world too. And being a Labrador Retriever he had so much love to give. He was also my dad's Service Dog. Pogi means "Handsome" in Filipino. So in English I am Jake Handsome Osinski and we all know that. I was born in Ohio just outside Toledo at the Aeschiman family farm. The place is called "Buckeye Kennels". The farm was a wonderful place to start my life with the fresh air and green grasses. Then a loving family took me home, it was not too far away from the farm as I remember. At my new home I had lots of toys, plenty of food and the best part was there were kids to play with every day. But sadly I couldn't stay there, not because they didn't want me or love me. They knew how much I love to be around people and would get sad if I am alone. Due to a change in their lives they could not give me that and they loved me to much not to give me that. So they looked for a family that could give me company and attention that I need. So at the tender age of 6 months I moved to my new home in Michigan. That day started with tears of saying good bye and ended up with tears of joy with my new family. My dad calls me his gift; you see I am not just your everyday adorable doodle; I am his new service doodle and mom called us "Team Doodle".
I took my obedience training at "Happy Paws Training". My teacher is Jan Beregszaszy. She is a very good and wonderful teacher. Everyone in the school is so wonderful too, I love Jan's husband Joe or what I call him "The Treat Man" he is never without a treat for us. They said that I am very smart because I learned to do service work for my dad at such an early age which made my dad looked good as a trainer. It was also at Happy Paws Training where I received my certification as a Therapy Dog. Also received my AKC Canine Good Citizen CGC at Happy Paws Training too. My dad had seen a web site for a therapy group called The 'Fur Angels' Pet Therapy Group of Michigan. We met the CEO/Founder Martha Hall at a local pet store she was in the line of people to pet me. I was just over a year old when I joined The Fur Angels Family. Now I go everywhere with my mom and dad and I am never alone now. I always get so much attention from people when my dad and mom take me to different places. People tell me that I am beautiful, lovable and most of all so adorable. Some people adore me so much and would love to take me home. My dad calls this "The Doodle Effect", and I love to be the center of attention. I now have friends and family living all over the world. I have a very happy doodle life and thanks for visiting my web site.
Love Jake Pogi
