Life with Jasmine and Juliet, Our Rescued Dachshunds

Random notes on our experience with our two rescued miniature dachshunds

Is This Our Dog?

on July 31, 2008

Jasmine is definitely on the road to recovery.  She’s eating and her diarrhea is gone.  More importantly, she has had more zip and pep in the last day or so than she has had the entire time we’ve had her.  When I took her out the first thing this morning, she got ultra-curious in the back yard.  She sniffed the entire thing like she had never been there before.  She noticed a squirrel and got very interested.  She saw something under the hedge and tried to track it (probably a bug).  She entirely forgot why we were out there. 🙂

Jasmine has also been signficantly more playful since she’s been mending from the Whipworms.  The screaming monkey toy has been a great deal of fun, but she has also been initiating play much more frequently and wagging her little tail quite a bit.  I wonder if the parasites have been with her the entire time, and her normal, low-energy, mellow personality has been a symptom rather than her true self.  I’m enjoying the revved-up Jasmine, and I hope this happier, attention-seeking little imp is finally coming out of her shell.

By the way, any typos in this entry is directly attributable to Jasmine jumping up on my lap desk and pushing the mouse around. 😀
