Life with Jasmine and Juliet, Our Rescued Dachshunds

Random notes on our experience with our two rescued miniature dachshunds

Cha Cha Cha

on August 7, 2007

I’m noticing little changes to Jasmine, little things that make me think she’s becoming more comfortable with us. First, she’s getting a bit more frisky. She runs, jumps, wags her little tail and rolls in the grass in the mornings and sometimes after a walk. She ran around and wagged her tail as I was putting down her breakfast–the first time she’s been excited about her food bowl. She watched the UPS man driving up today and although her ears were perked, she didn’t growl or become anxious. Good doggie!

But she growled at Tom last night–the second time that’s happened. He was hovering over her a bit, so I think she was intimidated by his size and dominant stance. Regardless, I corrected her with a “shussshhh” and Tom made sure she accepted a little ear scratching. We can’t have her being aggressive towards Tom at all.

Every day is a bit different for her as far as her temperament and acceptance. But then again, when am I feeling the same every day? I have to keep telling myself that she’s only been here a short time. Time will help her learn and become more confident.
