Maeve said I could borrow her blog...

How’s it going? Jasper here. I asked Maeve if I could borrow her blog to personally thank all of you for your kind words, thoughts and prayers. I hadn’t really counted on her dragging out that stupid camera. But I guess it’s okay since the pictures show everyone how great I’m doing since I had my stroke a couple of weeks ago.
Can I tell you it scared the living crap outta me? I mean –seriously. All of a sudden nothing on the right side of my body cooperated. I couldn’t even lounge on my favorite pillow. I kept rolling off the silly thing. Can you imagine how humiliating it is to have your human set you on your perch and you roll over like a ball down a steep driveway?
And my mouth leaked! Now I admit, I’m not the neatest water drinker in the world but I couldn’t get ANY of it in my mouth. But Maeve took me to see Doc and even though the man had the shameless nerve to put this weird snout holder across my nose AND stick me in the butt with something really sharp, I have to admit he helped me out. Let me tell you somethin’ though, that nasty black junk he gave Maeve to squirt in my mouth tastes terrible. I made sure Maeve found out how horrible those drops were. I licked her right in the mouth when she didn’t expect it. If she had ears to flatten against the side of her head, I think she would’ve done it. She started spitting and mumbling something about liver-flavored. Take it from me; I have NEVER tasted a piece of liver that tasted like that. I guess Maeve is right about one thing though: when you’re ailin’, you gotta take your medicine. BLECH!
My paw’s gettin’ kinda tired now so I’m gonna wrap this up. I just wanted all of y’all to know that I really appreciate your friendship. Maeve read all the emails to me since I was too tired to read them myself. Those emails made me proud to say that I’ve got some pretty awesome humans as friends. 
I still keep a close eye on my land
Here's the pics Maeve took today. See how great I'm doin'? Thanks again, y'all!
This is my girlfriend, Yellow Dog

Did you know that sticks smell better after you lick'm?
Come down here and say that, you mangy gray furball
ENOUGH with the pictures, Maeve. Later y'all!

    2. Sorry about the deleted comment. My paw missed. Anyway --here's what I intended to write:

      I hope so, Cathy! I love those bacon beggin' strips. They're also pretty fun to leave in inconspicuous places where Maeve will step on them with her bare feet. Heh heh heh

    1. Hi Roni! I'm not far from snoozing too. It's kind of chilly here in Kentucky today and this cozy fire is making me sleepy. When Sable wakes up, tell her I said hi!

  6. If you don't mind me asking, Jasper, you are such a fine looking dog I was wondering what breed you are? I am sure you steal hearts every day with your cute swagger. ;)

    1. *sits a bit taller with chest puffed up* Why thank you, Paisley. My girlfriend, yellow dog, definitely thinks I'm quite handsome. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm a mixed breed. Maeve found me at a rescue shelter when I was barely six weeks old. They told her my mom was a rat terrier and dad was a chihuahua. Lots of folks mistake me for a min-pin but I'm just a perfect little dog cocktail. ;-)

  7. Jasper, I'm so happy you're doing much better. Poor Maeve must've been worried sick about you. You are a little hard to resist. My dog, Zoe, wagged her tail when she saw a picture of you, you handsome devil. ;-)

    1. Hmm...Zoe, huh? *wiggles eyebrows* Tell Zoe I'm sending her a special tail wag back. ;-)

      And yep. Maeve was pretty worried. She's pretty silly about me. (And I kinda like her too)

  9. Aw Jasper, it's good to know the stroke didn't numb your sense of humor. I know Maeve was awful worried about you, little man. I enjoyed the pictures showing you back in your element. Please thank Maeve for me. Take care and be good and take the medicine.

    1. I'm TRYIN' to be good, Calisa. But GEEZ - that medicine tastes like a pair of Maeve's old socks that have been at the bottom of the hamper too long. YUCK!

  10. Jasper, I was just thinking about you today, wondering how you were handling those rancid liver drops. So glad you're being the good patient and taking them for Maeve. Loved the pictures. I had no clue you were so handsomely photogenic. Take care, my man.

    1. Thanks Vonnie! I don't care for the camera but Maeve sure likes to follow me around with it. I'm takin' those nasty liver drops and 'tryin not to growl about it. Much. ;-)

  11. I'm glad you're feeling lots better, Jasper! I was worried about you. That was very clever of you to make Maeve taste the medicine. LOL! I loved all the pics of you too. Here are some wee (((doggie hugs.)))

  12. *wagging tail* Hi Vonda! Thanks so much. You should've seen the look on Maeve's face when she got a taste of MY medicine. I didn't know humans could wrinkle up their noses like that. ;-)
