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...

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...
