Ahhh… Afternoon Siesta and Evening Meaty Bone

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

When Mom gets home from working at the Farmers Market, we keep her company while she unloads the car.  JJ and I then hang out in the kitchen as Mom puts things away and piles the dirty items in the sink.  Since the clock ticks way past noon, Mom prepares a late lunch and savors the ability to sit down after 5+ hours on her feet.  We accompany her under the table.  After cleaning dishes and her work items, we gear up for a quick tank emptying and then…. it’s Siesta time!

I usually snuggle with Mom for a bit, and depending on lots of stuff, I may move around the room.  Yesterday, JJ and I napped the whole time on Mom’s bed.  The only bad part – JJ continued to CHEW Mom’s wool blanket, hidden underneath her comforter.  Mom was NOT amused.  She scolded JJ and asked her, “Would you chew a sheep?”  No response from the Chewminator.  We woke up refreshed and ready for the balance of the day.

I tried very hard to extend my walking time last night.  As we turned the corner towards my friend, Dixie’s house, I saw the silhouette of a beautiful girl, heritage undetermined due to lack of light.  I pulled and barked so loud that – Jet, look away from the post for a moment.  Why, Mom?  Because I asked you to, Jetty.  Ok Mom.  He barked so loud and for the length of about 3 houses that he covered the sounds of the pops going on in the neighborhood.  Ok, back to you my boy!  Thanks Mom!  I couldn’t catch up to her, so I returned to my evening constitutional.  We completed our typical morning rectangular route and Mom acted very happy when we unleashed in the garage.  She looked at JJ and me and said those delicious words, “I’ve got a special treat for you.”  My tail did the happy wag when she pulls the bag of frozen meaty bones out of the freezer.

As chief of the fur family members I rightly get the biggest bone.  JJ, Miss Chewminator, loves bones as much as I do.  We go to our respective special spots and start chomping.  I worked on my bone for almost four hours.  Mom threw it away because I cracked it into sharp edges.  JJ eats her bones in a more lady-like style.  We went out to empty tanks before bed and kept Mom company as she and the felines did their nighttime rituals.

Meaty bones and naps, Sunday bliss!

Another great (Sun)day.

  1. Hi Jet – you crack me up – the chewminator!!! I can’t believe she tries to eat the wool blankets – silly girl!

    That does like the perfect Sunday to me – naps and bones to chew on! Good for you sweet Jet that you were able to extend your walk, no POP POPS on our walk today so hopefully this fireworks nonsense is stopping!

    Have w wonderful night – sendnig lotsa kisses and hugs xoxoxoxo

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy. Yeah, no Pop Pops for you and none for us tonight either. Oh, please, please say it’s finally over. I took Mom and JJ for an extra long around the world tour in reverse direction from our normal route. I thought I’d shake it up a little. I did extra business so they would know Jet was there!

      How’s your human son feeling? (Mom’s asking too.)

      Hope you have a wonderful night too Miss Wendy. JJ and I got lots of salad tidbits in addition to our twistix, so far, so good!

      Jetty kisses and JJ hugs.

  2. Hi Jets – so glad you were able to enjoy a nice long relaxing walk and I hope you and your family have a peaceful night sleep!

    What salad tidbits do you enjoy? Do you like baby carrots? does JJ? Cassie and Rex are crazy for them – well they are both big food lovers so they are kinda crazy for anything!

    Please tell your sweet Mom – thank you for asking Jacob is better – my main concern was that he has had some allergic reactions to antibiotocs in the past. (rashes, hives etc) but so far so good. He has midterms this week so I’m g;ad he’s feeling better!

    hugs and kisses back at ya! xoxoxox

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy. I started to write to you and JJ had to go out… and she did … nothing… Mom started to watch tv and then tried again… nothing… and we didn’t get back to the computer…

      We had: carrots, celery, cucumber, jicama, sweet red pepper and tomato! We’re not terribly fond of lettuce.
      Mom makes 5 salads at a time, so she’s ready to go. She told me to say that all she needs to do is add protein. Her salad dressings are put in something called Tupperware, she makes 5 of them at a time, too.

      Jetty kisses and JJ hugs for the whole day and night Miss Wendy!

      Hey, it’s Jet’s Mom here. So glad to read Jacob is bouncing back. I saw an article last night on natural sinus remedies, however, didn’t want to be presumptuous. He sounds like me, often I react worse to the medication than the original issue! You might look into probiotics for him to take while on antibiotics… since Rachel had 53 ear infections her 1st 3 years, they blew her immune system with antibiotics and we had to build her back up ever since. Please let him know we’re rooting for him during his midterms!
