walks, back scratches, snoozing outdoors, cuddles, talking:)))
thunder and fireworks
stuffed monkey that makes monkey sounds
cooked fish...she will catch her own from a bucket when we go fishing but, she doesn't get to eat them raw
anywhere with Mom; probably open fields for running
high five; when I' m on laying the floor, she'll use her nose and push into my ribs which makes me laugh
One day while visiting the Humane Society I spotted this beautiful girl in the first ward room of the local shelter. I fell in love immediately and got into the dog run with her. At the time, unfortunately, she already had a hold on her for adoption. On the way out an employee asked us if we did not find anyone of interest and I said we did but, she had a hold on her and we were informed by the employee that one individual had holds on her and a couple of other dogs. The employee phoned the person who had the dogs on hold and it was determined she did not really want Jasper, so we adopted her that day. She has always been a Mommy's girl (my) girl and at the age of 10 years now, she has been my best friend and defender whom I love dearly:))) She's a very maternal dog!
She's never been crazy about men wearing hats. She had been abused; kicked in the hind end and was black and blue which wasn't realized until she came home and was submissively laying on her back for a tummy rub, that's when we saw her legs and lower tummy...she's always been sort of lame due to this since abuse IMO, since her adoption at the age of approx. 1 year.
Also, when adopted, upon getting her home, it was determined she had Parvo and kennel cough and issues with severe separation anxieties for almost 8 months....but....with lots of TLC this big, beautiful girl was the first rescue dog to steal my heart of my pack of sweet fur-kids.
Jasper's had health issues with aging...a number of fatty lipomas and a tumor (under her ear) which were all successfully removed in the fall of 2006 with surgery. She's a wonderful girl.
Update...after living for 16 years, 3 months and 20 days with her beloved, devoted family, Jasper crossed to Rainbow Bridge after having a celebration with all her human family and friends followed by a feast whereby she got to eat things like peanut butter which she hadn't been able to eat for over a year (due to pancreatitis bout and having to remain on a low fat diet)...her sisters Nikki and Suzie, her Grandma and myself were with her as she crossed--it was the most peaceful crossing I've ever witnessed and for this I am very grateful!! I will miss you my big, beautiful girl, (who was 16 years, 3 months and 20 days old)-you had a great life, full of love and we were only separated in all that time for 2 days and 1 night--I miss you, as do we all, but, know we will meet again---I love you Jasper!!! XOXOXO
