a jasper update
last week I treated myself to a new digital camera. my old canon DSLR was dying, so it was quite a necessary purchase! but the first thing I pointed my new camera at once I took it out of the box was Jasper. and looking at these pictures made me realise I don't talk about him on this blog often enough. two weeks ago we had a scare - Jasper was really ill, not eating, barely able to move, and he kept throwing up. we took him to the vets and he was diagnosed with a severe case of pancreatitis, most probably the result of his ongoing medication for his epilepsy. he is fine now, but it really did scare me, and I hated having to think about the fact that at some point this little guy will leave us. he is at the centre of our family - he is treated more like a child than a dog. and as I work from home every day he is my constant companion.
my pupster is like my best friend and my child rolled into one! which sounds daft I know - he is a dog after all. but I love this guy so much. who needs a boyfriend/girlfriend when you have a four-legged creature to snuggle up with?
