Follow Up Friday: Festival of Lights Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

We’re participating in the Channukah Crawl this year, whoo hoo! Today, Catself along with PerPetually Speaking are up.  Tomorrow, share the last Hannukah (I know, I spell it differently!) post with Cat Wisdom 101.

follow-up-fridayOur friend, Miss Jodi, Heart Like a Dog, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea and has successfully turned her wonderful idea into a robust blog hop!

We ordered our Dogs of Blogville Calendar this week.  Miss Jodi, Sampson and Delilah worked their fingers/paws to the bone creating this fabulous project.  The proceeds will divide evenly between two of our fellow bloggers who suffered severe damage in Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy.

Saturday: A+ Customer Service 

3Thanks to all of you who admired the color of JJ’s new leash/harness.  You appreciated the less than frequent experience of great customer service.  Update: Mom does not feel secure with the handle of the EZYdog Cujo leash and wrote to Mr. Brady again.  She told him she read the return instructions AFTER throwing the tags away.  He said we could send that segment of the leash back and exchange it for the Mutley, which has a handle Mom feels confident with.  Double A+ EZYdog!

Black & White Sunday: Hannukah with Friends 

hannukah 2012 2 bwWe enjoyed receiving so many comments appreciating the Channukah Crawl, since many blogpals were curious about our holiday’s history and customs.   You expressed how fun it was to have Miss Mary Ann and Dixie celebrate with us.  They generously gave us two gifts: super yummy (dried sweet potato) treats and super fun toys.  Mom’s still holding out because she knows Little Miss Chewminator will extinguish their sweet lives in less than 3 minutes!

Mischief Monday: Borrowed Mischief

sonomaOh did we receive fun captions and comments about Sonoma’s antics in the dishwasher!  Mom shared with Miss Jennifer, since she thoughtfully shared Sonoma’s mischief anticipating (I’m sure of it!) that Little Miss Festival of Lights and I would be on our best behavior!  OH! OH!  The paperback of Snoopy’s Master Mischief Class arrived… our copy crossed the Casa Jet threshold on Wednesday night!  Yippee, Yahoo… a MUST READ (BIAS ADMITTED!)  Great for the holidays, remember half of the proceeds helps Therapy Dog Programs!

Tasty Tuesday: Latkes for K9s or Lassie Latkes 

7For those unfamiliar with latkes, you enjoyed learning about the history and modern interpretations.  Many of you shared your family’s preferences regarding toppings: applesauce (Casa Jetty) and/or sour cream!  Little Miss Latke and I did the major happy dance when Mom prepared such beautiful samples for us.  She barely had time to snap pictures!  Mom posted step-by-step photos on her Kitchen Counselor FB page for your review!

Wordless Wednesday: Bandannas and Babushkas 

5Thank you for admiring the pawesome Hannukah bandannas made by Mollie, Alfie and Miss Stella and gifted to us by Savannah and Miss Linda.  You complimented our modeling style and got a kick out of our Mom’s goofing around changing the bandannas to babushkas!  Yes, I rocked a babushka… I’m just manly man enough to do it!

Wednesday and a Half: Knotted (An Adaptation of Rapunzel Starring Princess Zena)

When preparing our Thursday post, we popped over to our pal PZ (Princess Zena) and coincidentally found one of our favorite styles of her posts – her story posts… as we read on… it featured… ME as the Handsome Prince!  Wowee wow wow… we just HAD to reblog it… if you didn’t have a chance to read it… besides having a starring role, yippee yahoo… PZ and her Producer created an amazing rendition of the timeless tale.  Thank you ever so much, PZ… you gave us a wonderfully unexpected gift.

Thankful Thursday: Awards and Appreciation 

boty-1starWe felt deeply fortunate to receive the Blog of the Year Award from Miss Ann of My Pawsitvely Pets.  Thanks for understanding we could only share the award with a few of the endlessly deserving blogs.  We explained what made us choose each blog we bestowed the award on.

hannukahGlad you thought the toys Mom gave to Austin for Hannukah rocked as much as Austin did.  Mr. Andy reports that Austin continues to tote the two new toys all over the house!  When Miss Judy mentioned that Austin likes all the toys Mom picks out, Mom replied that’s because they’re JJ tested and approved!

Another great Festival of Lights week.



Follow Up Friday – Hannukatized Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

boty-1starBefore we start our weekly roundup, we’re so excited to share the news that we received an award on Wednesday.  We promised to post about it yesterday, however, we ran out of steam.  (Mom’s fever got the best of her.)  One of our newish blogpals, Miss Ann from My Pawsitively Pets, bestowed the Pawesome Blog of the Year Award on us.  (You MUST read the post with Niblet imitating a Christmas ornament!)

Yippee, yahoo, wowee, wow, wow, fever and all, Mom joined us for a round of the Happy Dance.  We immediately send the award back to Miss Ann and promise to post a proper thank you, following the full rules and such next Thursday.

Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to dig out (and make progress) from our comment box filled with kind words of support and comfort regarding Puffy’s crossing.

Ok, on with FUF!

Saturday – Did You Hear the One About…

mischief master classMy human sister, Rachel, could not believe how many of my pals wished her Happy Birthday.  On her behalf, we send out an 18 year old, like 3 in big K9 years, THANK YOU!

So many of you sent in news that you downloaded the book (great for holiday gifts!), looked forward to the soft cover edition (on its way), complimented my mischief skills, and complimented and thanked Mom for editing that Mom and I stayed permanently blushed the whole day!

Black & White Sunday – Life’s Simple Pleasures 

Many of you wondered how Little Miss I Have A New Toy fit that ball in her mouth.  Mom says she has a case of TMJ brewing!  JJ continues to favor that green ball, falling asleep with it just like that several times as Mom rubbed her belly.  She’s a funny one.  We must thank our young, human neighbor Ruby, for sharing one of her toys with JJ.

Monday Mischief – Phew Last Minute Mischief 

password mischiefGreat news!  Mr. Danny “the Wonderful” from Link2City, gave Mr. GoDaddy “the business” during two, 1.5 hour discussions on Monday and by Tuesday morning Mom’s Kitchen Counselor email worked like a charm.  Mr. Danny now manages Mom’s Kitchen Counselor website and Kitchen Counselor blog in addition to her Kitchen Counselor Newsletter eblast (which has been problem free since inception 3 years ago).  He’s almost finished repairing the mess that was the KC blog, so, Mom should be back posting there soon.  Thanks for sending in so many empathetic (VBP – vocab builder project) comments.  We appreciate and we’re sorry so many of you understand.

Tasty Tuesday – realdogs Eat Chicken Jerky Tenders 

5Lots of you commented on how cool it was that realdogs uses real dogs on their packages.  The Urban Hounds particularly enjoyed the photo on our package!  Can you believe we’re now part of Nip and Bones’ Baby Patches Testing Team? Whoo hoo!

The humans wrote to Mom and agreed with the idea of cutting the jerky in small pieces to make it last longer, HMPH… whose side are you on??? Everyone appreciated the all natural, grain free, made in the USA, two ingredient jerky.  Hey Mom? When can we have more?  (When you get a good run in!)

Wordless Wednesday – On Hannukatizing and Meeting Haley 

hannukatizing 2012Mr. Wil from Marking Your Territory, said “Hannukatizing is officially my new favorite holiday verb.”  Whoo hoo!  We received so many compliments on Mollie, Alfie and Miss Stella’s pawesome card.  Do pop over to Mollie’s blog and share your appreciation over there, too!

Haley’s story warmed your hearts as much as it did ours.  A few of the manly men inquired about a date with the lovely K9!

Thankful Thursday – Prezzies for me? The Ultimate Gotcha Day Stretch

17We need to clarify (VBP) that we are NOT blaming Barnie the Beagle! We feel the Customs humans did not take the time to read the CLEAR label stating Dog Treats and left my pawesome, ROYAL, gift box from Mollie’s Dog Treats, ordered by my BFF, Savannah, in a hot tropical corner somewhere for EIGHTEEN days before allowing the USPS to place said box at my door, along with an army of ants!

3We tenderly unwrapped each item to show you how thoughtful Savannah and Miss Linda were in sending me such a great Gotcha Day/1st Blogiversary gift and how special Mollie, Alfie, and Miss Stella’s efforts were in  baking and wrapping their artisan treats.

11Thanks for the advance compliments on how I will look in my Hannukah bandanna.  You may not have realized, Little Miss Always Accessorizing received one, too!  We’ll model for you next week!

Another great everything worked out week.
