Life with Jasmine, Juliet and Buttercup, Our Rescued Dachshunds

Random notes on our experience with THREE rescued miniature dachshunds

A Waggedy Tail

on June 2, 2008

Lately, Jasmine has been wagging her tail. Before, she’d only wag if it was dinner time, if she was getting a treat, or if she was asked if she wanted to “go for rides” with me in the car. These days, that little tail has been wagging much more often. She wags when she’s jumping up to say “hello” to me as I’m sitting on the couch. She wags when it’s time to get brushed. She wags when I call her over to sit in my lap.  She wags when she’s trying to get my attention to play with her, take her outside, or just pet her.

Bark Magazine has a montage of pictures in every issue of “smiling” dogs.  Jasmine doesn’t often have a smiling doggie face, but she’s starting to relax.  The wagging tail, the bright eyes, the increase in confidence when we’re walking…more signs that Jasmine is coming out of her shell and beginning to enjoy life away from her past.
