Jasper, Oh Jasper

It was a nice warm afternoon the other day when I was working in my garden. Both dogs were off their chains out playing and havin' a good ol' time runnin' around like ying-yangs. After a grueling time of trying to catch frogs in the pond (seriously these are dogs after my own heart) they decided it's time for a nap.

"I want to chase frogs and take a nap! Why can't I do that too?"

Cause you're a big girl now and you have to get your garden planted if you want to have anything to eat from it this summer.

"But I want to go catch frogs a take a nap! This isn't fair!!"

Suck it up buttercup, cause life aint fair!

Sorry, I got off subject. My mind and I kinda go at it every now and then.

So my little Jack Russell, Jasper, was in there next to the garden just completely wiped out. Since I don't usually get a chance to take pics of him like this I grabbed my camera and hoped he wouldn't wake up till I got a picture. So here's what I got of the funny little turd!
  "Oh, I'm gonna catch that bunny. I've almost got him...
....wait what was that? Did I hear some thing? Is some one taking my picture?
Oh it's you!
I'm sorry I didn't mean it. I love you. Please don't be mad at me.
Oh brother, I'm gonna get it now.
You want me to do what?
But I don't want to come over there.
OK fine...
I wasn't in your garden. Are you mad at me?
I'm here.
I'll never be bad again. Let's shake on that.
Oh come on, won't you please rub my belly?!?!
Did I hear a squirrel?

And just like that it was over. 


  1. Fun post. Whenever my sister and I do voices for Trixie we think she'd talk really fast. So we see who can talk the fastest. ;) Happy Weekend.

  2. Awe, how cute! So did you get your garden planted ;).

  3. Jasper is such a cute li'l fella! We call our Banjo girl (also a JRT) our "human dog." Just sooo smart, they are! And so expressive. Give Jasper a hug from Banjo & me, k? :) -Tammy

  4. My mother told me I had AD/H... oh look! a squirrel!

    Cute pics Janet!

  5. Awww, Jasper! My JRT is hard to get a picture of too. She never sits still for very long.
