Follow Up Friday – K is for Kuma and other Tidbits

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

Black & White Sunday Hop:

The outpouring of lovies for my buddy, Barkley, after our first Black and White Sunday post, made Miss Wendy watery in her eyes.  We posted lots of her comments directly.  So many bipeds share their forever homes with adult K9s and felines and understand caring for a wizened (vocab building project VBP) senior  requires compassion, recalibrating (VBP) to the shifting meaning of “normal”, and acknowledging the grace exhibited (VBP) by the aging quadruped.  This week, my friend, Suka, had a post on the same topic this week, too.

Little Miss Delivery Girl

Great feedback on my sister’s new side business!  We may need to request artistic help from Miss Ann at Zoolatry when she feels super duper (GET BETTER SPEEDY QUICK Miss Ann!).  She would no doubt design the perfect delivery outfit for JJ!

Scrumptious Soldarity:

Boy did Mom receive an earful from my anipals on Tasty Tuesday!  That’s right… not enough sharing of the yumminess for ‘ol Jetty boy and JJ!  In fairness, I did let everyone know that since I’ve been exceedingly hesitant to leave the house due to booms and streaky lights, Mom wanted to watch the quantities of solids in my tummy.  The weather has held to overcast with short bursts of you know what the last two days, so, I’ve been more confident leaving the house in the evenings for my constitutionals.

Z is for Zebra:

Oh Mom goofed BIG TIME on Wednesday.  She referred to Miss Paola’s gorgeous Samoyed, Kuma as Zuma.  Mom and I spoke about this transcription error at length.  Turns out, Mom LOVES the letter Z!   Who knew?  From zipper and zigzag to Zachary (one of her preferred choices if Rachel had been a boy!) and zebra, the woman had “Z” on the brain!  Thank goodness, Miss Novroz and Mr. Colby pointed out that bear in Japanese is KUMA, so Mom could realize her error!

Lady Litchi:

Lady Litchfield Love wrote an extra special post about me this week.  We felt so honored, we reblogged it yesterday!  Of course we added the appropriate acceptance of her formal and graceful apology.  This lady has class aplenty.  She and Miss Susan do so much good for rescued animals around the world (especially in their native South Africa).  We again congratulate them for achieving blogroll status on Le Clown’s site via competition.

Phew, I need a snooze after this post!

Another great catch up day!

  1. Sounds like an eventful week for clan Jetty. I read about Kuma and I didn’t dwell on visiting Tasty Tuesday because this makes hungry. It’s nice that you guys made a summary of what you did.

    Huggies and Cheese,


  2. Having a good giggle now, seeing you having to do an apology as well – tee hee 😀 So, now I know something new about you – your liking of the letter Z. Now I’ll understand if Litchi ever becomes Zitchi (although, that wouldn’t make any sense at all!) 🙂 Was surprised by the name and wondering why anyone would want to name their dog after our President – Jacob Zuma 😀 😀

    Thanks so much for the re-post – it’s our first ever and we are very excited!

    • Hey Litchi, Hey Boks, Jet here. Hi Miss Susan.

      BOL, forgot about Jacob Zuma… good thing Mom was a History major many moons ago! BOL… Zitchi!!! I’ll try to make sure Mom doesn’t goof again!

      Oh, we were so excited, glad we were your first ever reblog. 🙂

  3. Hi there Jet!….It’s so nice to meet you. And thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your kind words about my brother, Benji. He’s still here with us today. Mom and Dad were thinking it was almost time to let him cross the Bridge, but he told them last night he was having no part of it. So we’ll wait until he lets us know.

    Note from Mom…Benji has terminal cancer and according to the vet at the ER where we had to rush him in March, he wouldn’t live more than 2 months. That was 6 months ago. He has a lot of symptoms of old age (he’s going on 17) but we feel those symptoms aren’t directly related to the cancer. His blood work was all still normal a few weeks ago. So we decided to wait as we feel he isn’t suffering at this point. It may be a few days or a few months but he’ll have to make that decision. Thank you for thinking about him.

    • Hey Amber, Jet here.

      Likewise. You and your family are so wise to allow Benji to let you all know when the time is appropriate. Your love and superb care no doubt have allowed him extra time to share with you. Make all the memories you can, they will be cherished later.

      Mom and I are finishing tomorrow’s post right now which acknowledges that a year has passed since our golden girl, Koko, crossed over TRB. Hard to imagine. She let Mom know and in fact, I knew too. I put my head gently atop hers and kept her warm and protected. Mom later said it was quite something to see. (uh oh, she’s getting teary.)

      Sending however many Jetty kisses and JJ hugs you wish to receive. xoxoxox

  4. Hi sweet Jetty – really enjoyed follow up Friday! thank you again for posting about Barkley – I just fed him by hand, took him out again,, hopefully he will settle down, he seems restless at night. We did not have a storm today – YIPEE – did you?? i hope not!! i have to work at Costco demoing Dove products Sat/Sun – really need the biscuit $$ as Jacob’s acne Dr was kinda pricey last week!

    Are you doing anything special for Rosh Hashona? I am making a nice dinner (pot roast, kugel, soup etc on Monday night – bought it all – just reheating!!)) just David, me and Jacob. Are you cooking? I bet you make some yummy things!!

    sending TGIF goodnight hugs and kisses to you, JJ, Mom, Rachel and Puffy xoxoxox

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

      Most welcome, please pass some manly man kindness to my buddy.

      Thank heavens, the sky was ok today and I went out for my constitutionals. Mom gave us hooves for special treats!

      Mom is going to the Julia Child event tomorrow @ Miami Dade College downtown campus (she’s quite excited. She teaches her first UMiami class of the semester Monday night. Mom does enjoy cooking for the holidays, however, these days, she goes to one of her special friends to celebrate. Miss Ellen enjoys when Mom brings salad. Everyone loves when Mom brings salad, vegetable, fruit, all kinds… not sure what makes her salads so special… except for the Vitamin L she includes! She misses her family celebrations from when she was young. Shana Tovah. 🙂

      Sending apple and honey Jetty kisses and JJ hugs to you, Mr. David, Jacob, Cassie, Rex and Barkley xoxoxo

  5. You have been busy! We like the senior post. Our Au is 14 and a little creaky and we love him dearly. So much so that he rules the house. We should all get the care these old furries of ours do!

    • Hey Sampson, Hey Delilah, Jetty here. Hi Miss Jodi.

      Nope, no pardon for me… Litchi and Miss Susan felt the need to apologize for not listing us as making their blogroll (it was a competition of sorts)! I graciously accepted their mea culpa!
