Jet Update

Jet before she was adopted

Remember Jet?  The portly senior gal?  Her family sent an update today and a link to their blog and news that Jet has lost 10+ pounds.  Please be sure to visit Jet’s blog and see how wonderfully she’s doing.  She’s a gal after my Luigi’s heart – Jet likes sucking on pillows, too!  What a gal.

Here’s the note from Jet’s mom:

Everyone loves her. Even people who say they thought they’d hate dobermans. They never met one up close.

We have a few more posts today!

To answer a couple of questions…we don’t have Jet on any pain meds! We gave her some baby aspirin when she was limping for a week but after that, she totally came around. It’s just her weight loss. She now JUMPS on the futon, can almost jump onto the king sized bed, and almost-kinda-maybe wants to chase squirrels. Chase is a strong word but Joe is trying to teach her “chase” to give her more exercise. She can run full out for about 50 ft. Very cool! We’re scheduling a vet/dental day in September. I’m trying to decide between my old vet and a more holistic vet who worked at the same aquarium where I was a dolphin trainer. Tough call as far as the vets go but we’re really choosing between a 9 or 9..5 on a scale of 10. I just have to say, Jet is blossoming. She has always been a gorgeous dog but with her new
waistline coming in, she’s a very striking dobergirl! No one can believe she’s 10.


About Helen

I'm a Southern California living in South Florida. I've been here for 10 years as of October 1, 2007. No matter where I live, I'm a dog lover, and my breed is the Dobermann Pinscher of the Working Group. I am also fond of the Australian Shepherd of the Herding Group. My life revolves around my dogs, which is something those family members of mine don't understand. So I'm an island in that respect, but have built friendships with those who are doggie lovers and respect the canine as much as I do. Some do rescue, some train in, compete in, and judge AKC trials. The common thread is our dogs are family.
