Long Time No See

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Mom’s employer, Mr. Andy, asked if Mom wanted to take care of Austin this weekend.  Of course, Mom jumped at the chance.  Armed with the house key and a security review, she looked forward to her first visit of the weekend after our evening constitutional last night.  Mom wondered if Austin would remember her.

Austin greeted her in fine golden fashion with barks and major wagging.  His tail wagged so hard and fast the back half of his body had to compensate in the opposite direction!  He looked like he choreographed a Latin Salsa!

After a quick “empty the tank”, Mom decided to see if they could play inside since she arrived after dark and she couldn’t find her light stick at home.  Of course Mom sat on the floor and gave Austin a proper “hello, great to see you again” back massage and major belly rub.

Then, she told Austin to, “bring me a toy.”  Wagging.  Go ahead Austin, “where’s your toy?”  Wagging.  “Austin, let’s play rope… do you still have your rope?”  Austin reversed and went off to the family room and trotted back with his prized rope!  You may recall this is the toy Mom purchased for him during “Olympic Dog Sitting Week!”  I bet if I saw Mom at that moment, I would have seen a humongous smile on her face.

Oh they had fun playing tug, fetch, with intervals of Austin playing with the rope and Mom taking pictures.  Mom transcribed a text from Austin to his human parents letting them know he felt comfortable with Mom and enjoyed seeing her again.

Another great Austin Weekend.

    • Hey Dakota, Jet here. Hi Miss Caren.

      Oh he did indeed. They really enjoy their visits together. In fact, right after we read your post and comment, Mom’s off to give him a mid afternoon tank emptying/play session! 🙂

    • Hey Bongo, Jet here. Hi Miss Laura.

      Dude, his humans think he can’t play well with others. Mom has something to share about that… so, she’s working on showing them Austin can do it! I think the three of us could have a lot of retriever fun.

  1. So fun! Austin is a cutie. My dogs know, “Get your toy” but I have not taught them to distinguish between toys. I let them choose their favorite which can change from day-to-day. Yesterday, Pierson’s favorite toy was his bed blanket.

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

      JJ knows the general “get your toy, too”… I used to, before Little Miss Happy Happy Toy Hoarder arrived last winter! Austin only has the one rope, so… maybe that explains it!

      BOL! Pierson liked his bed blanket…

    • Hey Princess Gracie, Jet here. (glad you like our greeting style!!! 🙂 )

      Not yet, his humans say Austin does not get along with other K9s well. Mom made some progress with that yesterday, so, maybe over time. Mom said I would LOVE his backyard.

    • Hey Dalton, Jet here.

      Gosh, now I’m blushing, sending Jetty kisses right back.

      Mom told Mr. Andy she got a little misty when she said goodbye last evening. Mr. Andy said Mom can visit any time! Yippee!
