“Paw”dies for Miss Wet Paws

Hey, It’s Jet Here. 

Continuing my Scooby Doo Academy Powers of Observation class has turned up another interesting mystery about JJ; her paws always seem to be wet.  Mom and my human sister, Rachel noticed this fact, too, and began to watch her habits more closely, as did I.  Our sequential theories: 

JJ stepped in “accidents” we did not know about in the house. Not true.  We scoured house, no wet spots found. When JJ does have an occasional accident, she does so in the same location. 

JJ’s paws stay wet abnormally long after walking outside in wet grass. Partially true; we collected evidence and determined that her paws remained wet for the same duration as mine. 

JJ drinks sloppily out of the water dish and then steps in the water on the floor. True; we believe this accounts for part of JJ’s constant “wet paw” condition. 

JJ has a “thing” about cleaning her paws. Ding, ding, ding, – we have a winner!  We carefully made observations and showed each other her frequent attention to her paws.  When she puts her back paws fully in her mouth, one at a time of course, she tends to lose her balance and either roll off the bed or into some humorous position.   

Last night, when we cuddled in bed with Mom to go to sleep, JJ’s paws perfectly aligned with my face.  I decided to give her a treat, a Jetty “Pawticure.”  I cleaned her paws meticulously to save her the trouble.  Mom’s eyes focused on her book, glancing subtly to see my technique yet not disturb the process.  Miss Wiggle Girl actually stayed put for the whole treatment.  When finished, we both fell quietly asleep, which Mom found charming.  

Another great day.

  1. Jet, you are such a sweet boy to give JJ a Pawticure. Sometimes the paw cleaning is a sign of a food allergy usually beet pulp in the dog food. Have Mom check to see if JJ’s food has beet pulp in it.

    See you Saturday, have some special hugs and belly rubs lined up for you.

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Rebecca. You are very smart. Oh my, we certainly do not want JJ to be uncomfortable. Mom said she will check after work. hmmmm…. how did you learn about this?

      Oh, Miss Rebecca, I’m ready for hugs and belly rubs FOR SURE.

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi again Miss Rebecca. As soon as Mom entered the house yesterday, she went to read the label on our Solid Gold kibble. We heard her make this PHEW sound. I think it’s because she did not see beet pulp on the list. Thanks for bringing this possibility to our attention. 🙂

  2. Hi sweet Jetty – you are the most loving big brother to give JJ a pawticure! It must have been very cute and sweet to see!!! My Cassie is a big paw licker/cleaner also – she hates when her paws are wet. muddy etc – I;m always wiping them off after walks.

    I think there is going to be a crowd of fans waiting to love you and JJ up on Saturday! Can’t wait to see you! xoxoxoxx

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy. Sorry we are writing back to you so “late” (now it’s early morning). Really? I’m telling you, Cassie and I have so much in common, I wish we lived closer. Mom wipes our paws, too.

      We’re excited too, well, Mom is really, we don’t exactly understand what will happen in the future. Mom can’t wait to make all the introductions! Jetty kisses to you Miss Wendy.
