Jasper

Five months old, and Jasper is a comedienne in a fur costume.

Yet he has pensive moments. 

His thoughts are open to interpretation, ranging from, "Do you have a cookie?" to "How many cookies?' to "When you finish taking pictures, can I eat the camera?"

He's crazy about apples, too, and if you spell a-p-p-l-e, he'll bark. 
He knows.

I take videos and photos all the time, and most are a blur of tail and fangs.

He's still teething, and this means toys must be inspected daily--sometimes hourly. Kong toys are tough, but he managed to eviscerate a dinosaur in less than five minutes. We've started buying toys with "chew technology." 

His breeder asked if Jasper had started talking, and I thought she was teasing. Then he started doing the inimitable Scottie AROOO bark. These utterances are unpredictable, well nigh impossible to get on tape, but now he's taught the rest of us to AROOO, too.

  4. I think my cranky laptop lost my earlier comment...I've been waiting for a Jasper post! That face is irresistible and he looks so attentive and ready to pounce! The answer to 'how many cookies' would be 'as many as you want' ;) Thanks for the doggie smiles this morning. ♥

  7. Oh Michael, I've been hoping to see a post on Jasper!! He's adorable, and hasn't he gotten big? He reminds me of our previous Scottie, MacDuff, except MacDuff was wheaten-colored. Yes indeed, our Scotties DO talk to us; all of ours have. Sometimes when Hal leaves for work, Duncan starts howling; he throws that head back and really gets into the whole thing. :D

  8. Well, I didn't mean to use up the whole comment space so quickly. ;) Anyway, I do think Jasper is just adorable, Michael, and I'm so glad to have another Scottie owner to chat with. I know what you mean about the teething -- Duncan was notorious. I think I did a post a few years ago on all of his destroyed toys. He still doesn't sleep in a "bed" because he chews all of his cushions to pieces. Sigh. Jasper's little coat is adorable, and I love the second collage. He's a charmer!

    Have a great day!

  11. Omg he's so adorable. I'm used to getting dog photos and videos all the time from my one daughter especially (Welsh terrier), but my other daughter and her husband just adopted another furbaby from the pound. She's a Mutt-aineer! :) Bring on the pictures and videos, and have fun! AROOO!

  12. I got so excited when I opened your e-mail and saw it was about Jasper! I'm not sure who would be making more noise: maybe Jasper with his arooos or maybe me squealing with love and delight!

  16. Cute, cute, cute! That face of coal with the shiny eyes steals my heart each time I see his photo. I took Sadie to the groomer today and when I went to pick her up, a girl with a black Scottie was just leaving. They are charmers!!!
    Sadie likes apples and just about anything else she can consume.
