We Almost Pulled An All-Nighter

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Mom said that teenagers, college students and graduate students sometimes do this thing called “pull an all-nighter.” They stay up all night to study, finish a paper, or have lots of fun. During her student days, Mom never pulled an all-nighter until law school when she met my human sister, Rachel’s, dad. During finals, Mom said he was like a bat, up at night, sleeping during the day. He convinced Mom to go “upside down” because studying in the wee hours on the night was quieter and more peaceful.

As you know from this week’s posts, Rachel and company morphed into Hunger Games Central. Yesterday, those crazed teens waited on line for the movie premiere from 3:30 p.m. to midnight! A few of the teens passed by our house at dinner time to scoop up all the week’s culinary products to bring to the group waiting on line. Jesse, Alexandra and Chris did give JJ and I a smattering of attention. I can’t imagine what could take their focus off our K9 fabulousness – movie, shmovie!

Mom went off to a meeting, came home, and joined JJ and I for a lovely evening constitutional. Jet? Yes Mom? I would describe the walk as you insisting on a specific route, retracing your steps for a whole block, and taking your sweet time even though you heard my robo-yawning. Oh, sorry Mom, I enjoyed the fresh air and your company, even though the hour was late. Well, Jetty, when you put it that way

For some reason, we felt antsy and couldn’t fall asleep until we knew Rachel returned home safe and sound, hopefully remembering to lock the front door and turn out the light. We watched tv, got brushed, barked at the outside sounds, got massaged, and chewed hooves and antlers.  The Hunger Games fanatic graced the threshold at 3:00 a.m., so we fell asleep at about 3:30 a.m. Our hunger game began at 6:30, about an hour later than usual. See, see! We almost pulled an all-nighter!!!

Another great, need a big time nap, day.

PS.  Mom will add pictures later…

  1. Hi sweet Jetty – oh my – poor Mom – what a busy tiring few days she’s had and I remember you saying she has a busy next week too! Did Rachel and her friends like the movie? How did all the food turn out? What a fun experience for her -something she;ll always remember – what an amazing Mom you guys have! Please give her a big hug from me and hopefully she can go to bed early tonight and catch up on some much needed zzzz’s!

    sending so many hugs and kisses (hopefully Mom is already sleeping!) to you, JJ, Mom, Rachel, Puffy and Fluffy xoxoxo

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

      Rachel told us she liked the movie, had a great time with her friends, had to eat the food quickly because they permitted people to enter the theater 2 hours early. Rachel said she still liked the book better and wished they didn’t change some of the situations. She understood they needed to do that to maintain a PG13 rating.

      Mom, well, she’s trying to get to bed at a normal hour tonight!

      Have a great evening Miss Wendy.

      Jetty kisses and JJ hugs to you, Mr. David, Jacob, Cassie, Rex and Barkley
