Jasper is 5 today

Post by Dawnspell »

Where as the time gone, cant believe he's 5. I think hes finally finished going through adolescence =))

He still has anxiety issues about the world but he so much more chilled than he used to be. He's never going to like children but at least he now doesnt go into meltdown just hearing one never mind seeing one like he used to. He's still learning that he can ignore things and not everything is his business. I think there will always be training to be done with him =)) he's full on, but is the biggest cuddle bug at home.

To show how far hes come his Gran had to spend the last few months of her life in hospital at the end of last year. She had dementia with anxiety and panic issues and would get very distraught. The ward was dog friendly and Jasper visited her almost everyday. He walked calmly through the hospital, didn't bark at people, and would lay on his blanket on the bed for cuddles and endless treats from his Gran. It was ironic that the dog with anxiety issues himself was the one that was best at calming down his Gran :x which also helped calm her visitors down not seeing her so distressed.

Belated happy birthday wishes to Jasper :YMPARTY:

Lovely photos and so good to hear how he has progressed with all your dedication. It really is worth it for these little dogs and he must be so much happier in himself now too. It is wonderful how intuitively they seem to know when someone is in distress and can help them in just the right way - no words needed ❤️

Thanks Leigh.

Having a "special needs" dog certainly makes you a better dog owner. I'm also more aware of how little dog owners when out walking are ignoring what their dogs are trying to tell them about how they feel. Jasper has taught me so much about dog behaviour, its definitely a 2 way learning process :D
