Did You Hear the One About…

Hey It’s Jet Here.

So, Mom and I, (ok, Little Miss Happy, Happy, too), jumped up and down when we learned that Miss Annette and Snoopy published their Pawesome book on that Amazon place.

Mischief Master Class [Kindle Edition] Annette Vivian (Author), Lori Moldovan (Editor)

Of course, if I, Mischief Minded Jetty, did not:

  1. Perform dashing fetes (VBP – vocab builder project) of Mischief,
  2. Expertly dictate same to Mom,
  3. Remind her to rapidly submit THREE posts to choose from (yes, because I’m THAT good!) when Snoopy requested, (Mom couldn’t pick the best… she’s too close to the talent!)

Oops, I digressed, got a little carried away with my new found 15 seconds of fame…

You see on Thursday morning, when I lovingly woke Mom at 4:30 a.m. to get a head start on her day, she came upon an email from a friend in Cayman.

Mr. Adam, “A friend of mine recommended this on Facebook and the name of the editor caught my eye.”   Mom nearly fell out of her chair.  How did Mr. Adam find Snoopy’s book one day after Miss Annette published it?

IMG_1302Mom has five friends downloading the book so far, we hope you will to.  Half of the profits go to help Therapy Dogs.  Mom has a fondness for therapy dogs as many of you know because she and my golden sister, Koko, volunteered at our local children’s hospital for 4.5 years.

Another great literary day!

P.S.  Big Happy Birthday Wishes to my Human Sister, Rachel! Xoxoxoxoxo

P.P.S.  If anyone would like my pawtograph, let me know… I promise to remain grounded Jetty, no celebrity tantrums here, uh uh, no paparazzi at Casa Jetty, no diva food requests, no drama …….

Mom Messed Up

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

Yesterday, for the first time, Mom disappointed me.  I’ll chalk it up to an honest oversight, because I know how much she loved my sister and how much she loves me.  In fact, from what I’ve observed, she loves all K-9s.  Here’s what happened.

We had our usual great day, as you read in my Spa Day post.  We took an extra long nap, a nice walk, Mom brushed me while I dozed in the evening, you get the picture.  She did this TIVO thing for one of her favorite shows, NOT ON ANIMAL PLANET (not that I’m judging her), called Extreme Makeover Home Edition.  They asked humans to call in to support the humans who serve (d) our great country.  She went on line instead to this Rise and Honor place and gave as much money as she could.  So far, so good.  Except… that was IT.

Now Mom knows better.  She and my sister, Koko, were a therapy dog

team with Therapy Dogs, Inc. for 4 ½ years at Miami Children’s Hospital and 1 year at S. Miami Hospital.  She knows about Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dogs International.  So many of my fellow K-9s serve humans in the military as well as after the humans come home.

Yesterday, on 11/11/11, our post should have focused on my K-9 brethren that help active duty military personnel and returning veterans.  Over twenty-eight groups help veterans and always need more funding.  (We eat a lot of food learning how to help you know.)  Mom’s including a link so you can read about many groups and how they help.   Mom told me that CNN published an article and Hallmark (again… NOT ANIMAL PLANET, just saying…) had a program on last night honoring military K-9s.   If you have a little extra biscuit money, please consider helping those groups, too.

Jet, I deeply apologize for my error.  You bring such an important subject to light, thank you.  I certainly did not mean to overlook your brethren and their incredible accomplishments and contributions to our active military and our veterans.  I honor their service with equal measure and will donate an equal amount to a group you and I select together.   I accept your apology Mom.

Another great and conflict resolved day.
