Meet “Blueberry Hill Jazmine”

July 21, 2014 at 1:03 pm (Uncategorized)

Our sweet Tessapoo died on January 23, 2011. My Post, “How Do You Say Goodbye.”   I vowed we’d never have another dog.  My heart was so broken, I didn’t know if I could recover.  Then Darling DannyO started wearing me down.  We made compromises, which is why we just didn’t go to a shelter — I wanted a dog that did not shed (I was NOT EVER sweeping each and every day again).  He didn’t want a little dog, but a hunting buddy.  Friends B & G posted pictures of their dog, Crockett on Facebook.  I asked what kind of dog he was and where did they get him??  We found out Crockett was an Airedale Terrier.  Someone we actually knew, Jeff Varner, breeds them.  Circumstances prevented us from actually purchasing one until this year.

Because she is AKC registered, we had to come up with more than “Jasmine,” her original name.  So, she is “Blueberry Hill JaZmine,” because her Mom is Mountain Summit Black RaZberry.  Of course, I’m already calling her “Jazz” or “Jazzy” or “Scoobydoo”(not sure why!?!?)

She is smart and really wants to make us happy, except when she wants to make herself happy :-D.  {{sigh}} it will all work out!

We are crate training her. She stays in her crate if we cannot watch her 100% of the time.  She sleeps in one too.  Now, to be sure, she has accidents — she is only 9 weeks old.  They are down to about one a day.  We are learning her “signs.”

My deal with DannyO was that the dog would be his (registered in his name) and when he was home, he would be her primary caregiver.  He is holding up his end of the bargain.  Of course, he works 8-10 hours a day so that leaves me and Jazzy a lot of bonding time.

With me battling MS and TN, this is indeed a stressful time for me.  I am not afraid to put her in the crate when I need a break or a nap.  She complains because she’d rather be sitting ON my feet, but she’s surviving.  I know it is temporary — Jazmine will become part of our family and to be honest, she already has my heart 🙂
