jack russell won't jump on couch

My female 8 year old jack russell won't jump up on the couch. She stops at the edg of the couch and makes the movement like she's going to jump but she doesn't. And get ears are pinned back cause she looks scared that she can't jump up on the couch. Also when you pick her up to put her on the couch she's shaking a little. Does this have anything to do with deer ticks? Seems weird all of a sudden. She probably hasn't been jumping up on the couch for a week.

Jack Russell won't jump on coach NEW

It's funny, many people don't want their dogs to jump on the couch :-)
I'm wondering if your Jack may have a sprain of some sorts where it hurts to jump. I would try to keep you Jack off her feet for a few days to help her heal a bit. Put her on the sofa instead of making her jump. (They sell doggie stairs that you can buy so she doesn't have to jummp which is good for aging dogs). Don't have her walk long distances. See if that helps after a few days.
