How adorable is Jake, IV? Jake is a Samoyed - the name derived from the Samoyedic peoples of Siberia. Jake works with Michael Knight, owner/watchmaker at Knight Watch & Jewelry Company in Colorado Springs, Colorado, along with Michael’s daughter Ecko. Jake, IV appropriately serves as the Knight Watch watchdog - as have all Michael’s Samoyeds before him. It’s good that Jake has found something to keep him busy as their aren’t many reindeer to herd in Colorado Springs.
