Good Sports-Dog-Ship

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

Sorry for the late post, however, the electrical poltergeist visited our house again.  Yup, Mom told us (including my human sister, Rachel) that this thingie called a server fell down, went down… something like that.  So for almost a day, we couldn’t post for you.  Mom went into ESI (Electrical Scene Investigation) mode this morning, and discovered: THREE wires mysteriously were unplugged.  She plugged them in, waited a bit and voila – we’re back!

We want to publicly congratulate Malachy, the Peke, on his Westminster win Tuesday evening.  That little guy entertained us as he trotted around the ring.  We enjoy watching the two night contest (via tivo) and cheering for our favorites.  Mom says it’s sort of like watching the NBA playoffs and finals packed into two nights.  Mom really pays attention to the announcer when he details the heritage and the characteristics of each breed.

Now, if you will permit me to break down the contest from my point of view:

Night One selected the first four group winners:

Hound Group – We like the array of body shapes from sleek to low lying.  Of course we rooted for the three dachshunds in Dixie’s honor and the wire-haired guy won!  We can’t wait to chat with Dixie about this.

Toy Group – Rachel would usually find this group most appealing as she is a “small dog” person, however, she has the flu and stayed under her covers all night.

Non-Sporting Group – First of all, this group needs a much jazzier name, any suggestions?  How about the cool breed name group?  We like this group for their diversity.  The Dalmatian win reminded Mom how popular Dalmatians were when she was a little girl.   Celebrating wrinkles made Mom smile (aka the Sharpei winning 2nd place.)

Herding Group – Since I joined the family, Mom pays much closer attention to this group.  We try to find similarities to my “Mr. Handsome” looks and the breeds in this group.  Mom also listens extra carefully to the breed descriptions to get a better sense of what comes naturally to herders like me!  Who doesn’t love the German Shepherd?  The Garden went nuts.  Our only curiosity, why German Shepherd Dog? We do not call JJ Golden Retriever Dog?  Hmm… will have to investigate.

Night two commentary tomorrow.

Another great day.

  1. Hi sweet Jetty – Phooey on computer issues – so glad your back.

    How is Rachel feeling – poor thing – how is Mom feeling? – several of my girl friends are down with a nasty flu like sinus thing – sending Rachel feel better soon wishes!!

    Thank you for the in depth run down of the dog show – we love the dog show – we were just talking about it as dinner tonight – and we agreed it is very unusual for a small toy breed other than the poodle to win – but the Peke was very special!! I agree with Mom – there were many dalmations around then there are today also you don’t see too many shepherds or collies either.

    Well gotta go walk dogs, clean up from dinner, do laundry, count Boxtops for Education for Jacob’s school (I;m Boxtops coordinator for his school)

    Sending you so many goodnight kisses Jet and many goodnight hugs to JJ, Mom, Rachel, Fluffy and Puffy xoxoxo

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Wendy.

      Read Rumpy’s response, we had more computer issues. Should be ok now.

      My human sister, gosh, she can’t shake it. She stayed home again today because she was this thing called “very nauseous.” I’ll give her your thoughtful get better wishes when she exits the shower. Mom’s hanging on… she took a few naps today. Yes, Rachel’s doctor said lots of icky flu stuff going around. 😦

      Most welcome, do you think I should take a Scooby Doo Academy journalism class?

      Wow, you help so much, Rachel gave our neighbor Ruby boxtops this past weekend. Hope you raise lots of $$. Thank you for being such a good person.

      Sending Jetty Kisses and JJ hugs (without the ear infection part) to you, Mr. David, Jacob, Cassie, Rex, and Barkley.

    • Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Rumpy. Oh Rumpy, poor Mom. She had another 1 1/2 hour conversation with this company called ATT. She finally got to the right person who helped her. Now we’re really back online! Thanks for cheering us on.

  2. Hey Jet,

    Glad to hear you’re back online – you wouldn’t know anything about the unplugged wires would you? Tee Hee – Just kidding 🙂

    Sounds like you had a fun time watching all the Doggies on the TV – do you bark at them?

    Have a fun day

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Hey, it’s Jet here. Hi Snoopy. More on the wires Monday, ok? Keep it under your paws for now.

      No, I refrain from barking so as not to disturb their concentration. (Jet does not realize they cannot hear him through the tv set!) Did you?

      You too, Snoopy. I’m waiting for Mom to return from work and give me my much deserved attention!
