Jasper Makes Himself At Home


There I was sprawled out on the huge comfy bed. My head was blissfully nestled into the soft fluffiness of the doona. As I let out a deep sigh of contentment I though how perfect this place was for me to stretch out my weary legs after a hard day of romping around. With not a care in the world, I slowly started to doze off again. Suddenly, I was brought back to reality with this stern voice asking me, what I was doing up on the bed. I knew this was not the time to be hasty. Quick thinking was needed here. I slowly looked up at my dear sweet owner and gave him my sad puppy dog eyes look and just an ever so slight wag of the tail. It seems to work most times. A smile went across his face and I even got a pat for my efforts. As I slowly lay my head back on the bed I came to the conclusion that this would be my new sleeping place.

Jasper is given special privileges

Just how lucky am I. I just love my new home and family. I have even been given special privileges of being allowed to go into the house. I was a bit shy at first but after a while I got adventurous and started roaming from room to room, just exploring and sniffing at everything. There are a few things that caught my eye, such as that big comfy bean bag and large fluffy bed. I can just see myself sprawled out on those. Being just a young lad, all the excitement of it all got the better of me and just for a minute I totally forgot where I was. I had to go, the urge was there and those kitchen tiles seemed to be the perfect place at the time and besides no-one was looking! Got caught didn’t I. In an attempt to cover up, I tried to give them that innocent look, where, who, what mess? But they are pretty smart, somehow they just knew it was me. After a big lecture and some waving of the finger, I was given a cloth and while still sulking had to clean up my own mess. I decided that day, if I ever wanted to get back inside that comfy house again, I would have to resist my urges!

Jasper goes for a dip in the pool


Today I just couldn’t help myself. I had been eyeing that pool off for days. Suddenly the opportunity arose as the gate was open for just one second. Being an opportunist I quickly pushed my way through before I was noticed. My legs were propelling me so fast, I remember thinking to myself that there wasn’t much grip on those tiles, just before I went hurtling sideways into the cold water. What a strange sensation. What am I supposed to do now? I don’t seem to be able to touch the ground, and why is everyone laughing at me. Don’t they know I don’t know how to swim? Or can I? That’s weird. My legs just automatically started doing their own thing, whatever it was it was working and before I knew it I reached the edge of the pool. Now all I had to figure out was how to get out of this watery hole in the ground. Those darn tiles are so slippery!

Is this going to be Jaspers new home?


Today, I said goodbye to that nice lady and somewhere I felt safe. I then went for a ride in a car by the man who befriended me the day before. Once I got over feeling sorry for myself I decided to stick my head out the window. The feeling of having my ears flap against my head in a mad frenzy was something I would like to try again. I was trying to look around but everything was just whizzing by so fast. My head just couldn’t keep up. It wasn’t long before we stopped. The man carried me out and took me through this big gate. I couldn’t believe my eyes when he put me down, I just stood there frozen. There was this huge yard with lots of green grass, a pool (must check that out one day!), gardens to dig in, lots of things to chew on (shoes!) and look! More people. Suddenly everyone was all over me patting and hugging me. What excitement! This feels good, this feels real good. My head was darting around taking everything in, my tail was spinning around like a windmill and my legs just wanted to get going so I could start exploring. Is this going to be Jaspers new home………..?

Where is Jasper Going?


Oh bliss, it was so good to wake up this morning with my new owner fussing over me. But I sensed she seemed sad today. We went for a walk this morning as her flat doesn't have a backyard for me to play in. Along the way we stop as she chats with a friend who talks to me and gives me lots of pats (I didn't know what he said, but the pats were good!). I just couldn't stop that darned tail of mine from wagging and couldn't resist my urges to jump all over him, in an attempt to get more attention. It wasn't long after we got home when the same man came to visit, I got so excited I nearly wet myself. There was something about this person that made me feel good and I hoped he would visit again. But then something happened, he slipped a collar and leash on me and took me with him out the door....................................

Who is Jasper and where did he come from?


Hello, I'm Jasper and this was me a couple of months ago, all sad and depressed! I was only just a young lad, all of 4 months, when this lady found me wondering the streets, hungry and dejected. She must have liked my charisma, charm and good looks because she took me home and gave me some food and lodgings for the night. As I lay there with my full belly on those cool tiles, I thought to myself, I like it here all cosy and safe is this my new home? But that was not to be..................

Stay tuned to see what happens to Jasper next!
