Christmas recap from nurse Jasper

Hello there, everybody! I just wanted to give you all a rundown of things at my house. Mom & I have both been under the weather lately... you know, me with my back muscle & mom with the flu. She started feeling bad on Christmas Eve & it just got worse from there. So we have both been on some form of "quarantine" for the past couple of weeks. I did my best to take care of her & make her feel better, & she said that "snuggle bugs from the pup" are the best kind of medicine so I snuggled as close to her as I could, but I never saw any "bugs". I was hoping I would, cause they make tasty snacks, ya know??  Anyhoo...


I have been taking very good care of my back & have been using my ramp on & off the couch (not every time, but mom says that some is better than none.) And I love all the massages mom has been giving me, they make me all ooey-gooey relaxed...

And even though mom didn't feel good, we had a great Christmas!! Santa did not disappoint, I got all kinds of snackies & toys & there is even a present left under the tree that mom says I get to open tomorrow on New Years Day! I am a master at opening presents, just in case you didn't know. :)

My new jacket :)

And this year I took my 3 weenie cousins to see Santa & we all got our picture taken together!!

LtoR: Squirt, Oscar, Chief & me!!

So to all my friends out there in bloggerville, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas with your friends & family, I know I did! And mom & I are wishing you all a wonderful & safe New Year!!

down for the count

Well friends, about 2 weeks ago I hurt myself. It was my back, but not my spine, thank goodness. The Dr said that it was probably just a muscle spasm or strain, but I have been on crate confinement & told to keep my activity low when mom is home. We also do ice packs & heating pad sessions, which I really like. I have no problem laying still for that...

me & my heating pad & my blankie

I started feeling better & then I had a relapse (because I didn't listen to mom & stay put).  Mom says that she will be keeping a better eye on me & that she will update everyone as soon as she can.

See you guys soon...

Nose Art

This past Sunday was a very lazy day for me & mom. She said since her Saturday was so busy (she volunteered at one of the local cemeteries & helped put American flags on the military graves there), that we could have all day Sunday together to do whatever we wanted!!

And what did I want to do???

I hope everyone had a great weekend & Veteran's Day!!

PB Sunday

So every once in a while, something pretty amazing happens. When mom has scraped every last bit of peanut butter out of the jar that she can, she turns to me & asks me if I want to lick the bottle? LICK THE BOTTLE?!?! Like there is any other answer than YES, YES, YES!!!

And now if you'll excuse me, I need to spend some quality time with my snackie...


Note from mom: many, many peanut butter scented kisses were given by one happy puppy after this photo was taken. :)

Testing, testing...

Are you still out there my friends??

Mom's camera battery has died & she has searched high & low for her charger but can't find it. Which makes me very sad because she has some good pictures on there that I want to share with you, but she can't upload them yet...

So for now, I just continue to give her my sad, puppy dog eyes hoping it will get her butt in gear & find that charger...

Til next time!

New harness!!

Yep, you guessed it!! My new harness from Baxter's mom came in the mail & woo hoo is it spiffy!! There was even a new toy inside the box, which I can only assume Baxter & duk duk slipped in as a surprise for me... :)

Mom calls this one my "everyday" harness, one that she doesn't have to worry about me getting dirty. But don't be fooled by it's plain appearance on the outside... there's a super secret fun print on the inside. But you won't tell anyone if I show you, right??

Check it out...

Super cool, huh?? There's even a fun little robot charm on the back of my harness to match it. :) And after I had my little photo session, mom let me have some alone time with my new toy...

Thanks again to Baxter's mom for my new harness, it's super comfy & fits me perfectly!!  I love it!!  Not a bad days haul for a little doxie, huh??

If you are in need of a new harness for ANY occasion or just for everyday use, check out Baxter's blog & click on his mom's "how to order" link on the right hand side to order one for yourself.

Now it's time for walkies to break it in...

The big bathtub

Hey there everybody!!

I hope that you all have been having a good summer so far!! What are you doing?? Swimming? Hiking? Going on picnics? Mom & I went on a beach vacation last week & we had a blast!! Although, when she took me to see the ocean for the first time I was a little confused. Why would she be so excited about something that looked & felt a lot like the bathtub??

"It's the ocean, honey! Isn't it fun?? Isn't it beautiful??"

I don't know mom, it looks awful big to me... and I'm all wet & there's stuff sticking to me & I don't know what to do about it.

In the grand scheme of things, I guess it wasn't all bad. I got to see lots of nice people & some of them took pictures of me (mom called them my paparazzi) & I got to meet lots of other dogs. The waves kinda scared me though, they were loud & came at me really fast. Once I got used to them it was a little better.

We walked along for awhile & mom collected some seashells & I got to smell some pretty interesting stuff. It wasn't too bad I guess, but I told mom it was okay of she went without me next time, I was fine back at the condo watching TV.

All in all, it was a great vacation. We got to hang out with my Auntie Heather & Uncle Mike & my brother Pilot, & my Uncle Josh came to the beach with us too. Plus my Uncle Mike's bandmates were there, so there were tons of people to bark at & play with.

Now I think I need a nice long nap to recover from my vacation...

Harley's Visit

So two weeks ago my Uncle Brian & Uncle Paul went all the way to Virginia to visit my mom's grandmother and mom & I got to have my cousin Harley for a whole week!! We had so much fun together!!  Harley is about 4 years older than me & he doesn't like to play as much as I do, but mom says he tolerates me pretty well... whatever that means...

We did a lot of lounging around together...

especially when the laundry came out of the dryer all nice & warm...

we went on walks together...

kept an eye on the neighborhood squirrels...

and I even shared my toys...

Thanks for coming & staying w/ me & mom Harley!! You are welcome anytime!!

And then there's the really BIG news... mom & I are going on vacation next week... TO THE BEACH!! I have never seen the ocean before & I am super excited!!  Mom says I will love it, she's from the east coast & says that she pretty much "grew up in the ocean". And the even better part... we are going w/ my Auntie Heather & my brother Pilot!! So please stay tuned, cause mom says that she is gonna take a TON of pictures!!

And before I forget, I want to thank my friend Marley who gave me an award a couple of weeks ago & I never got around to passing it along. So thank you Marley!! You are such an awesome dog & friend, and mom & I love looking at your blog & reading about your adventures!!

Back to normal... & Derby

Hey there everybody!! I hope you all have been having a great couple of weeks, mine have been out of sorts a little. Mom had to go alllll the way home to Virginia cause her Granddaddy passed away, so that meant I had to spend a week at camp. Now don't get me wrong, I LOVE camp!! I get to run & play with other doggies & I get fun treats like frozen peanut butter balls... but I miss my mom. I miss her so, so much when we are not together... she says that she misses me more but I don't think so. Either way, I'm glad things are back to normal.

While she was away, here in Kentucky there was a little horse race that you might have heard of... The Kentucky Derby?? Last year mom took some pics of me with a rose (since it's also called the Run For The Roses) & I thought I'd share some with you.

And CONGRATS to this years derby winner, I'll Have Another!!

Thanks for sticking with me everybody, I know that I have been slow on the posts but I'm trying to get mom back on track, & we've got some fun stuff coming up, so stay tuned!!
