Life with Jasmine, Juliet and Buttercup, Our Rescued Dachshunds

Random notes on our experience with THREE rescued miniature dachshunds

Two Paws Forward

on May 10, 2008

Jasmine has been an angel since we returned from our trip.  It’s almost as if, after staying in the kennel, that she appreciates her home more.  The big change is the way she’s interacting with my husband.

I was laying on the floor with my head on my husband’s leg, when Jasmine sauntered on up between my body and hubby’s leg.  She let him pet her, and as she got more and more into the petting session, she nudged up closer to him.  She then did something she never did before–she climbed up onto his lap!  She continued to let him pet her, and for once, she was totally relaxed with him touching her.  It was so sweet…she closed her eyes and sighed with pleasure.  She did this once again yesterday, and today, she walked up to him while he was sitting on the floor and allowed him to pet her.  She’s let him do this twice before, but always stretching her body so he was JUST within reach of her head.  She’s not snuggling up to him without me next to her yet, but she’s within close reach and is relaxing as he scratches her neck.

It’s good to see that she’s giving him a little more trust and a little affection.  He certainly has given her all the time she needs to get to know him.  High five, Jasmine!
