Jasper the Vizsla

We thought we would do something a little different today and just post on a new blog we found recently.

A few days ago we came across the story of a Vizsla with cancer. It's very well-written. The owner did a guest post on which we would like to share with you to introduce Jasper and his human Todd.

An excerpt: Jasper’s cancer – officially a soft-tissue sarcoma – was first identified in October 2009. Over the past eleven months, he’s undergone everything from surgery and chemotherapy to radiation and experimental drug therapy. And yet he soldiers on. I could learn a thing or two about strength during times of adversity from him.

Jasper has never been an average dog, though. His breed is Vizsla – aka “the Velcro dog” because of their love of people. They’re also notoriously high energy. Not Jasper. He’s the calmest Vizsla around. Oh, and the sweetest, too. Every time he looks at me with those sad eyes, my heart just melts.

We hope you'll read  "The Calm Before the Storm" and then, having been introduced to Jasper, perhaps you'll stop by his blog. which is called The Adventures of Jumping Jasper-Roo the Vizsla Dog.

Have a purring and tail wagging day.
