Follow Up Friday – Weighty Issue Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, Heart Like a Dog, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea and recently turned her wonderful idea into a new blog hop!

Oh, Mom and I have a Hurricane Sandy donation follow-up to share before we begin our weekly roundup.  Remember Mom and I decided to donate to Best Friends Sandy Relief Fund?  Well, a few nights later, Mom’s minding the kitchen making her dinner when the phone rings.  Out of the blue, one of the founders of Best Friends says hello and tells her he wants to thank her for her donation.  Now, we wish we could share that the donation was monumental in size; however, truthfully, it was modest.  (Tough times at Casa Jet, like in many other homes.)

Mom shared why she selected Best Friends, that she and my human sister had volunteered there, and that I interviewed Miss Ledy Vankavage about BSL in the spring.  Mom offered my interviewing skills anytime he thought my blog could help.  Go Mom!  Mr. Best Friends thanked Mom and I for the offer, thanked us again for the donation and wished us a good evening.  Wow.

Saturday Pet Blogger Hop – DIY Houses

Mom found an article describing really cool, modern, unusual DIY K9 houses.  Unfortunately, we realized they mainly served more petite heritages than ‘ol Jetty boy!  We appreciated the creativity of our feline friends who thought some of the offerings would suit them just fine.  Our petite heritage pals shared which designs resonated (VBP – vocab builder project) with them best.  Finally, K9 pals considered part of the mid-size to extra large breeds like Little Miss Golden Girl and I, communicated that they, too, considered their human’s entire abode (VBP) their DIY K9 home!

Sunday – Black & White Blog Hop – Foreshadowing

We left you with a mystery, a clue in fact, to the subject of our upcoming Monday post.  While a few pals guessed, no one deduced (VBP – I’m on a roll!) the answer.  One reader said it looked like I was at the dentist instead of the doctor!!!

Mischief Monday Blog Hop – Sliding Scale

So many readers sent in supportive words about my need for a small amount of daily medicine for my hypothyroidism.  Many of my K9 blogpals said they live with the same condition or some of their fursiblings *OTRB* and present had this issue as well. A few of my human friends wrote that they have the same thingie, too!  Who knew?    I’m A-OK and deeply appreciated your kind words of support… and agreement about the whole weight taking in public!

Tasty Tuesday – Holiday String Beans

JJ and I, Mom’s faithful Kitchen K9s, appreciate your positive feedback about our recipe selections this week.  We do have a mindfulness apology though.  You see, our friend, Bacon, from Piglove, mentioned he would enjoy one of the recipes MINUS THE BACON.  Whoops, not very PC of Casa Jet.  We suggested that veggie bacon or turkey bacon could serve as proper substitutes.  A  few K9 responses mentioned the continued distaste for green veggies.  We threw in a hint; try a dab of peanut butter to get you started!

Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop – Maggie, finally!

After many years, Mom finally met Mr. David’s fur family member, Maggie.  When she downloaded the photo from her phone, we were amazed that the photo looked like a painting!  Among many complimentary comments, we had a few requests for a play date/date with the beautiful Maggie!  We’ll share your requests with Mr. David upon his return from that Honeymoon thingie!

Thankful Thursday – Frosty Paws!

We finally celebrated my Gotcha Day with the Frosty Paws gift certificate we won (first EVER win) from Adventures of a Dog Mom.  So many of you enjoyed our photos and said how much you love the delectable ice cream, too.  My buddy, Gizmo, gave me a pawesome present, his homemade recipe for Frosty Paws!  Mom entered the recipe into her Kitchen Counselor data base with Gizmo as the author of course.  We shared the recipe with Gizmo (for his recipe collection) and some pals in other countries that may not have access to the product.  Let us know if you want Mom to email you as well!  Thank you again for your Gotcha Day wishes.

Another yummy FUF day!

    • Hey Mollie, Hey Alfie, Jet here.

      Are you thinking of the pawesome new bandana for Hannukah????? I’m discussing it with Mom this weekend. 🙂 We’re so excited to have an option… Do you think it will show against my handsome black fur??? 🙂

  2. Hiya Jet…what a kewl idea this is and thanks so much for the shout out 🙂 My post today is a brand new one cause it’s about a super great fundraiser happening today for JG’s favorite anipal charity. Do check it out


    • Hey Gizmo, Jet here. Hi Miss JG.

      We did check it out and think it’s a great concept.

      Most welcome for the shout out, you deserved it for sure. I’m so grateful for your thoughtful recipe gift. 🙂

  3. Hi Jetty! Thanks for participating in FUF, I loved your recap because as you know, I’ve been busy writing and have not had a lot of time for reading. I shudder to think what my reader will look like when I sign in. 😦

    Glad you are okay with the thyroid thing, I had some radioactive treatment about 18 years ago and have had needed to take replacement ever since. It’s not too big of a deal, you just need to remember to be consistent!

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

      We LOVE FUF! Oh yes we now only too well about getting backlogged!

      We’re starting today, 1/2 tab 2x/day… all I heard was “cream cheese!”

    • Hey Phod, Hey Lee, Jet here.

      That makes our hearts feel happy. Thanks for sharing from an inside perspective.

      When Mom worked for a big trust bank, the charities paid stronger attention to the BIG donors by inviting them to special events, giving them VIP treatment and stuff.

      We agree, lots of modest donations add up too! 🙂

      Have a great night, too!
