Jasper Lily's New Life

Author Archive


Mom to 13 year old Shelby - Jack Russell/Shiba Inu mix. A rescue dog that was born in New Orleans. Shelby is a spirited, smart and happy little dog who loves to run, play, go to the beach (we live in LA) and ride in the car! She is my best friend and the true love of my life!


Jasper’s 4 year adopt-a-versary

Four years ago this past Saturday we met. It was NOT love at first sight. It was not trust at first sight. It was not perfect. But through the imperfect, the learning to love, the learning to trust, has come some of the best adventures and experiences. My allowing my heart to open up (and […]

Jasper Lily Goes to Washington!

PROUD! In a word – that is how I feel about Jasper Lily after our epic adventure to the east coast. For those that don’t know, we live in Los Angeles. We flew on a Friday to Washington DC which is about a 4 1/2 hour flight. Jasper rides either in her carrier under the […]

Our first scare

BUT our “OMG what is happening here” started last Wednesday evening into early Thursday. It was a normal day. Or maybe not. Jasper vomited on Monday. She […]

Happy 4th Birthday Jasper Lily

Oh wow … the sidekick turns four today!!!! I do not love these birthdays as much as I loved them with Shelby because I see them as “slowing down” (which she is not)  or “aging” (which who loves that … certainly not me with the little lines all over). And Jasper probably will show more […]

Northern CA Tripawds Party November 2016

Those dawgs know how to party!!! What an amazing weekend … re-connecting with old friends, meeting some new ones and celebrating life, love and joy! We had the BEST time, as we always do. Jasper (well mostly me) loves to get out of the city. I love to escape LA for greener (literally) pastures, cleaner […]

Jasper Lily’s confidence continues to grow

It’s been a while since I have updated her blog. So much has happened. We had our annual summer vacation – this year we stayed in California and explored Santa Cruz and Santa Rosa. Lots of time in the redwoods… it is truly heaven on earth. And since Jasper is still not the biggest fan […]

Jasper Lily’s two year adopteversary!

WOW… just wow. What a difference two years can make! From a scared, tail between the legs, hides from everything and everyone, beach hating, and always with the low-grow to a STRONG, proud, confident, tolerates beaches and now just a super loud big dog bark – Jasper Lily has come so, so far! I am so […]

Jasper Lily… the love story continues

OMG do I love this dog! Words I never thought I would utter but I look at Jasper and my heart just overflows with love, affection, trust and joy. You did good, Shelby Lynne, you did real good! It is so hard to believe that is has almost been two years since I lost the […]

Jasper Lily’s winter break escapades

Boy oh boy… Jasper Lily is sure lucky she’s such a cute dog because since she turned three, she’s become a bigger PITA (pain in the a$$). All week – despite walks before bedtime, Jasper gets restless and tries to jump down off my bed. Since my bed is so high and she’s actually rather […]
