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.



The “J” Hotel’s Princess Package

Hey It’s Jet Here.

If you read our Thursday post, you’ll know that our friends, Dixie and Miss Mary Ann had the circus come to their home.  We have terrible news to share; bad humans slashed the circus tent and did this horrible thing called burglarized Dixie’s house.  We’ve tried to support Dixie, Miss Mary Ann and Mr. Jim (Dixie’s Grandpa), since then as best we can.

Yesterday, Miss Mary Ann dropped Dixie off at the “J” Hotel early in the morning.  We offered her the Princess Package:

  • Her own Princess Room (with our very own Princess Rachel) which includes:
    • an en suite bathroom,
    • Lots of teenage stuff on the floor like plush towels and soft clothing,
    • An extra Princess (Rachel’s dear friend, Mechel), to snuggle with on the extra mattress on the floor.
    • Her personal food and water dish from home, her personal bed and blankie.
  • Tons of lovies and cuddling from surprise guests, Sabrina and Anthony, our ‘tween friends who visited us for a few hours yesterday afternoon.
  • Customized walks on her favorite routes, (since we know them.)
  • Evening lovies and cuddles on the couch with Rachel and Mechel.
  • Multiple check-ins with Miss Mary Ann to share her day with her Mom.
  • And finally… endless opportunities to hang with the property managers, JJ and ME!

Shhhh… Don’t tell Miss Mary Ann, but, Rachel and Mechel thought Dixie would look fashionable in this bonnet! (She only wore it for the picture, we promise!)

Another great hotelier day.

Thanks to Confessions of the PlumeLife With Dogs and Two Cavaliers for hosting the Saturday Pet Blog Hop.

Mimi’s Got Bling

Hey It’s Jet Here.

We LOVE company and today ranks as one of the best days in the company department.  First, my human sister, Rachel, had a super duper friend sleep over.  Mechelle played with us, gave us belly rubs and best of all… loves to cook and shared tidbits with us!

Grandpa and Neha came in to meet JJ when they dropped off Rachel from brunch.  Of course, little Miss Princess, charmed the pants off Grandpa and extracted repeated belly rubs from both of them.  He told us JJ looks a lot like Koko.

Ruby, our young neighbor, spent the afternoon with us and shared “by mistake” some of the baked goodies she made with Rachel and Mechelle.

Mechelle and Rachel joined Mom on our evening constitutional.  We met our new neighbors’ Mom and K9, Mimi along with her human brothers, whom we already knew.  Mimi is even smaller than Dixie!  At first, she barked at us, however, we got to know each other as the humans chatted.  Rachel noticed Mimi’s beautiful collar… because… well… Rachel knows BLING!

Miss Maya shared that she saved this beautiful human bracelet her prior K9 wore after she crossed the Rainbow Bridge.  When Mimi joined the family for Christmas, she carried on the tradition of wearing the beautiful bling collar.  We’re quite excited for Mimi to join our pack walks.

Mom’s friend, Eddie, turned the corner with his two new K-9s, Charlie and Lambchop.  His K-9, Yippee, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge recently, like Koko.  The humans exchanged greetings while the K9s met each other in our fashion.

Neve’s humans, then turned onto the street, returning home after dinner.  They stopped and got out to meet all the new K9s and chat with the humans.  It was a regular street party!  We made it two houses before running into Miss Cindy and Buddy the Beagle.  We get along really well with Buddy, he’s a laid back guy.  We wish we could visit him more; however, our humans’ schedules don’t match very often.

Neve came out with Miss Beverly and Mr. Giovanni as we approached our house.  We exchanged quick greetings and then went in for our after dinner Twistix!

Another great social butterfly day.
