Our Eleventh Black & White Sunday – Racing Stripes

Hey It’s Jet Here.

As requested, here are the best photos we have of my racing stripes.  Here’s my left stripe…

Here’s my right stripe…  (Sometimes Miss Mary Ann calls me Grease Lightning!)

Another great racing stripe day.

Thanks to My Life in Blog Years ​and Dachshund Nola for hosting the Black and White Sunday blog hop.

    • Hey Mollie, Hey Alfie, Jet here.

      Awww, shucks, thanks for saying. I will have a racy Sunday if Mom would just feed us breakfast already!!! Sure, I woke her at 5 a.m., what’s the big deal? 🙂

    • Hey Lady Litchi, Hey Sabre, Jet here. Hi Miss Susan.

      Thanks… I love having yet another nickname… Did you like the play/movie Grease? I’m A-OK, I promise. I’m taking my little 1/2 tablet 2x/day like a pro. 🙂

      BTW, there seems to be another intrigue brewing with Misaki… seems she intends to marry Dalton. I’ve asked Mollie to investigate. Wanted to keep you in the loop. 🙂

    • Hey Boomer, Hey Dottie, Jet here. Hi Miss Emily.

      Thanks so much… I like that… more character!!! Even though it’s a sign of my hypothyroidism, since I’m okie-dokie… I like ’em!

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

      Thanks Miss Marg, I have been speedy at times… of late have not had the off-leash time to practice. You see, there is too much broken glass at the dog park. (I had a $500 bill a few years back) My friends haven’t invited me to their fenced backyards lately, either… Mom said maybe this holiday weekend we’ll try another dog park farther away. 🙂

  1. We missed your post about your racing stripes:( Shiloh had the same problem and took medication for years. Even though your racing stripes are from a medical condition, they are still cool! Have a great Sunday!

    • Hey Scout, Hey Teddy, Hey Ash, Jet here.

      I feel the same way… kind of a bummer about the cause, no worries because I’m A-OK, so… I think my stripes are super cool!

      Really? Dr. Schaffer seems to be on the money… he said many retrievers/retriever mixes have this condition in their middle years and on… You too!

  2. Nice stripes Dude!!

    I bet you’re super fast – I’d love to race you some day!! 🙂

    Wags to all,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Hey Snoopy, Jet here.

      I haven’t raced in a while because the dog park had too much glass and we have not visited our friends’ backyards in a while. Rumor has it that Mom didn’t give us a Spa day this morning as previously planned because she’s going to take us to a new dog park over the long weekend. 🙂

      I’d race and hang out with you anytime! Bet JJ would love to run with you and Mum!

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

      Mom never did either until Miss Mary Ann brought them to her attention. Turns out it’s my puppy fur reappearing as a symptom of my new hypothyroidism. No worries though, I’m A-OK. 🙂

    • Hey Bunny, Jet here.

      You’re so funny… you could out race me with a blindfold and a delayed start! I’d love to hang out and race together though! Did you know that the stripes are a symptom of my hypothyroidism? I’m okie-dokie, so, I just think they’re cool, too!

  3. Hi sweet Jetty – YOU ARE SO HANDSOME – love your super racing stripes – like the other post said too bad they came from that pesky hypothrodism, but I know you are ok! Grease was a wonderful movie wasn’;t it? they don;t make then like that anymore.

    sending racy goodnight hugs and kisses to you, JJ, Mom, rachel and Puffy xoxoxoxox

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

      Oh, pshaw, Miss Wendy, I’m blushing and kind of looking down pawing in shyness!!! Mom said she saw the original Broadway production, too… a Classic!

      Sending speedy Jetty kisses and JJ hugs to you, Mr. David, Jacob, Cassie and Rex xoxoxoxo

  4. Hi Jet, Gizmo here…I iz never heard of racing stripes like yurs before…very interesting to learn about “puppy fur” JG wants to know – are you a Flat Coated Retriever?

    • Hey Gizmo, Jet here. Hi Miss JG.

      We love when people guess part of my heritage. From our best guesses, we think I’m part Flat Coat and part Border Collie. If you google follies, K9s who look like me pop up! (not too many btw… ) Someday, when biscuit money returns to prosperous, Mom wants to do a DNA test on me with Dr. Schaffer to see if we’re right!
