Jasmine Joy is a Southpaw…

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

I finally have a subject for my Scooby Doo Academy Powers of Observation case study. Our assignment over holiday break for Repetitive Behavior Class required us to observe the same activity for a week to two weeks and dictate the facts and conclusions. For a while, I was stymied; too many choices!

Then I noticed, on all of our empty-the-tank and solid business walks, J.J. would only do the deeds when she was on the grass to the left of Mom. At first I wondered if my tendency to walk on the right (because Mom holds my leash in her stronger hand) might have influenced the “new girl.” I asked Mom to check during the few times when J.J. goes potty without me. Mom confirmed, nothing happens unless J.J. inhabits the left side.

Mom said Oprah Winfrey, Presidents Clinton and Obama, Ben Franklin, Albert Einstein and tons more famous humans favor their left limb. In sports, commentators often call lefties Southpaws, using a K9 reference. So, it’s fitting to call J.J. a Southpaw.  Longtime blog readers know how much Mom and I love basketball.  Well, our very own Miami Heat forward, Chris Bosh is a Southpaw.

Me, I’m ambidextrous, quite coordinated in fact. I empty the tank on either side and will do my solid business on either side of the street. I’m just a flexible kind of guy. I’ll need a few more days to derive conclusions for the case study; right now, I need an after breakfast, after constitutional, after wrestling with the Southpaw nap.

Another great and observant day.

  1. Good Morning Sweet Jet – very interesting – I;m sure you;ll will get a A in your Repetative Behavior Class assignment! your a smarty as well as a cutie! My son is a southpaw just like Jasmine Joy!! I hold Cassie in my right hand when we walk, she like you will go on either side.

    I was thinking of you the other day – during one of Cassies many daily walks – she went up side down on the grass and was kicking her feet straight up and rolling around with such happiness! You doggies are just pure joy! I rubbed her belly many times – passer bys probably thought I was nutty – but thats ok Cassie was having fun!

    Well gotta go iron, no fun but its gotta be done! Have a pawsome day – sending hugs and kisses to you and JJ!

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Good Evening Miss Wendy. Thanks for your vote of confidence, I like to get good grades. Yes, I must agree, smart and cute, that’s me! Oh wow, you have a southpaw human? How cool! I knew I liked your Cassie, will she be at the reunion???

      How did you know? I do that with Mom, too, especially right after a bath, or after I’m brushed or when Mom’s in a bit of a hurry. As soon as she sees my belly, she laughs and realizes there’s nothing better in the world.

      Mom likes to iron, she says it gives her an excuse to watch TV! Jetty kisses to you, Miss Wendy…

      Oh, JJ is getting better, we had a playdate in Samson’s yard (minus Samson, he’s still in Arizona). We’ll write about that soon. Have a pawsome night, Miss Wendy, we’re off for our evening constitutional!
