Farmcation

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

While aggregating (vocabulary expansion) articles for her Kitchen Counselor newsletter, Mom learned about this thing called farmcations (farm + vacation).  Humans can choose to visit for a day or stay for a while on different types of farms.  They can help the human farmer work their land, help with the animals, or just take in the atmosphere.  After Mom described her visit to Ish’s In The Genes Farm two days ago, this K9 wants in!

Ish used to work for Dr. Schaffer, Koko loved him.  Ish left Dr. Schaffer’s office to pursue a degree in Animal Sciences at this place called University of Florida in Gainesville.  Plus, he became a dog trainer.  (In my view, he visits us K9s while really training the humans!)  Now he lives with his human family, five K9s, chickens and goats.

I heard Mom tell Auntie Liz that two of Ish’s K9s are distant relatives of mine, called Anatolian Shepherds.  They help protect the animals from these nasty things called predators like: raccoons, opossums, and HAWKS!  One Anatolian weighs 178 lbs, that’s one mighty K9!  Mom took a few pictures of the shepherds at work… and at rest.

Mom?  Yes Jetty.  Can I visit Ish?  Can I? Can I?  I can exercise those things called instinctive talents Mom, Can I?  I’m part herder Mom, I’m part bird dog, Mom.  (ooh, guess I shouldn’t mention that part, huh?)  Jetty, I can totally understand the appeal, plus, Ish has delicious bananas from his banana trees and the most beautifully colored eggs which you would love.  In fact, I brought some eggs home for us.  Hmmm… we’ll see, Jetty, we’ll see.  Thanks Mom.

Another great day in the burbs and on the farm.

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Snoopy. Likewise, nice to meet you as well. He has goats and chickens. I herd my family, too!

      Thanks Man, I’ll keep you posted. Come back and visit. Your bud, Jet. :)

  1. Hi Jet, that farm thing sounds fun. My person got to feed chickens at her friend’s house awhile back and she wouldn’t take me along. I’m not sure why.

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Bongo.

      I know, I really, really, really want to go. A few years ago Mom tried to find a herding place like my man Caesar Milan mentioned in an episode of The Dog Whisperer. Bongo, can you believe Miami does not have any? The injustice!

      Sorry you couldn’t feed the chickens, may have to sniff out a reason.

      Have a great night.

  2. Hi sweet Jetty – having fun with company but very pooped so I;m sending you many goodnight hugs and kisses to you, JJ, Mom, Rachel, Fluffy and Puffy xoxoxox

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy. I’m doing a big happy wag knowing you are enjoying yourself to the max. Mom and I participated in our first blog hop today, it was really fun.

      Sending Jetty kisses, JJ hugs to you, Mr. David, Jacob, Cassie, Rex and Barkley xoxoxoxo

  3. Hey Jet, just thought I’d let you know that I got your first comment on my blog today and then my person opened an email from a Dog Blog discussion on LinkIn (she doesn’t always open those) and it was your comment on that discussion. Also saw you on the Pet Blog Hop.

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Mom’s learning curve… well you know humans, not as speedy as us K9s. She participated in her first hop today. We like to support other pals putting good out into the world. The world needs more smiles and wags, right Bongo?

      If you have any advice regarding hops and LinkIn, let us know! JJ and I received two big meaty bones from Auntie Liz tonight, so we woofed ‘em down really fast and now we’re pooped out!

      Have a great night Bongo.

      • Hey Jet, my person has just started playing with LinkedIn herself, but she says the Monday Mischief blog hop is coming up. You can hop on over to http://www.AlfiesBlog.com to find it – or Snoopy’s blog (he left you a comment earlier). You don’t have to be mischievous to take part in it, but it helps.

      • Hey, it’s Jet here. Bongo, you’re the man! Mom found that one too and she told us we’ve given her lots of mischief to choose from! I can’t figure out what she means, can you?

  4. At first I thought the title was farmication…. glad I read that wrong!

    Would be nice for people to realize that farms aren’t like that stuff ya see on kid’s TV. It’s alot of work!

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Rumpy. Mom said after listening to Ish describe what he does she told him she admired him a great deal. The farm is beautiful, clean, and balanced, all the animals got along. Your comment is spot on Rumpy.

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Prudence. I agree Prudence the farm looks like so much fun, I’m BEGGING (and I don’t use that word lightly) Mom to go. Mom said to stay tuned for more posts, (probably on her Kitchen Counselor blog site, link on my blogroll), she will share backyard chicken resources with you.
