Jake Sprankle is the poster child for our Airedale Rescue group. He had a column in our newsletter from the "Travel Editail". Window clings were made for our cars from this image. He wore this saddle bag filled with brochures at many events. This flower and the clonal name are a fitting tribute to Jake - both have fuzzy faces.
