Spotlight Thursday – Meet Jazz

26 Oct

Spotlight Thursday

Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY.  This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better.  Some of them, you may already know.  We hope that you enjoy this series!

Name:  Jazz (nickname, “Jazzbo”)

Age:  14 ½  years

Location:  Colorado

Web/Blog Page:

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents?  I was pretty excited over everything back then. Mom thought I had had cute curls on my butt, and I knew these were the people for me. They adored my handsome poodle curls!

What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home?  My parents were determined that I was not going to sleep in their bed. The first night, they had a sleeping area all set up for me and turned out the light. I cried and cried. I missed my littermates, my mom, my dad, and my grandparents. I was not used to being alone. When dad relented and let me into bed, I knew that these people needed me to teach them the true Way of the Dog. I was needed here. We slept soundly in bed together, and I’ve slept with them ever since. That’s when I knew that this was the place where I was needed most.

What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home?  (*cough, cough*) I’ve always been perfect; there has been no naughtiness. Of course, I could always blame any accidents on Nutty, until he passed away in January. (*Looks down and away*) Now, I think the parents could be catching on how naughty I can be, but I’m not going to self-incriminate myself!

Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? I’d have to say, Mom. I’m special to both my parents, but Mom really depends on me to keep her happy. All the dogs here have a job, and I’m mom’s personal counselor. We snuggle all night long every night. I love dad, too, but he doesn’t need me quite as much. All I have to do is whine a little, and mom knows what I need (*hair flip*). We understand each other.

What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you?  They sometimes forget that I’m old and things are getting hard for me. Since I’m almost blind and absolutely deaf, they can easily give me the slip if they move through the house so fast. They will find me wandering the house looking for them. Mom gets me acupuncture, chiropractics, and medication, and feeds me healthy food, but sometimes she forgets to be sure I’m with her. I follow her all over the house because I never know when she’s going to need me. I want to be there for her, but sometimes It’s hard to keep up.

Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!

    Reblogged this on Peace With My Life and commented:
    Bacon Thompson interviewed my senior dog, Jazz for his incredible blog. It’s always fun and upbeat, and he has a fun Halloween thing going on for all of October. Check it out! Jazz is excited to be featured on the blog, but he’s really curious why the parrots got to go first (in the previous three weeks)!

    Jazz you are an amazing pup! …and we agree there is nothing like poodle curls… and to feel your fabulous fur is like a balm for our hands… and for our soul!

      Mama says that nothing helps a bad day more than to play with my curls and breathe in my scent. She says the smell and feel of her dog cures everything!

      Aw, shucks. Thanks. I guess I still have it for an old guy. Mom says I’m almost 75 in human years, but I’ve still got it! (Wink)

      I’m pleased to meet you, too. I have several cat friends, and the growling is only for show – honest – when they try to snuggle Mom when it’s my turn. Normally, I’m pretty nice. (cough, cough)

        I’m so sorry to hear of the car accident. I hate it when our friends depart forever. I hope a new snuggled enters your life! You could try a poodle, I suppose!

    You’d get along with my pup, he’s blind and old also, his hearing is questionable but I think it more selective! You are a sweet looking pup Jazz, nice to know you! 🙂

      10/26/2017 at 10:05 pm

      It’s pretty common in poodles, I think. It’s a good think people love us, no matter what! Nice to meet you, too.

    Hi Jazz, nice to meet you. We love your curls too. Snuggle up.

    • KDKH

      10/26/2017 at 10:06 pm

      Thank you. I’ve lost a lot, but I still have my curls! And I really am a good snuggler with Mom.

    You are awesome, J! What a character. It’s inspiring how much you care for your family, and actually help them. I love Mom, but I let her do most of the caregiving around here! 🙈

    Love and licks,

    • KDKH

      10/26/2017 at 10:09 pm

      Ah, Cupcake. I was young like that too, once. Now, we need each other so much that I have to be there for Mom, and she’s there for me too. It’s just the way we are. I’m sure you’ll step up when she needs you.

    Oh Jazz…sweet girl…you are one good looking poodle. I’m betting your pawrents would adore you no matter what kind of shenanigans you get into. It’s the true way of poodles. 🐩

    • KDKH

      10/27/2017 at 10:02 pm

      I hate to get by on my looks, but hey, whatever works! Mom can tell of several things that really made her mad (eating her underwear, for example, or when I snacked in the litter box right before giving her a big kiss on the mouth) but she always gets over it. Eventually. All it takes is a few snuggles and a glance at my butt curls, and I have her wrapped around my paw again!

    Hi Jazz! You are one smart cookie! As my Grandmother used to say, old age is not for sissies!


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
