Merry Newfmas and Happy Houndlidays!

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Pet-Blogger-Gift-Exchange1When we read about Honey’s Pet Blogger’s Gift Exchange, we just knew we had to participate.  We emailed the fetching Honey and Miss Pamela and then… we found out our secret match, our pals at Newf and Hound!

Here are the rules:

  1. Share encouragement and compliments – Easy Peasy!
  2. Link up here – No problem! 
  3. Share on any and all social media – Hmpf… as you know, Mom limits me to blog only!

When we first met long haired dachshunds, Ernie, Hazel and Nooner, we got a kick out of the fact that they shared their forever home with Foyle the Newfoundland!  You can read how that all came about here.  You know how Mom feels about fluffy fur, so, we were hooked right away.  Furthermore, they live in Mom’s favorite area of the U.S., San Francisco.


We love the diversity of subject matter, ranging from:

  • Their hiking adventures – you have to see the three petite Doxies keeping up with Foyle!
  • dachshund dressBucket Babe – Fashion.  Little Miss Fashion Plate ogled (VBP – Vocab Builder Project) the dachshund dress and thought a fall, auburn colored golden retriever pattern would look lovely, too!
  • DJ Track and Hound – they share playlists for different activities.
  • Foyle Fridays.
  • Nooner News.
  • 2012-12-17 Photo Transfer_5Crafts – This week’s project showed how to put the crew on wooden coasters with Mod Podge!
  • Training and Techniques – Check out the post where Foyle chases a coconut!
  • Treats and Food – we both posted reviews of chicken jerky on the same day! Great minds…
  • Letterpress posts show you how to make or where to purchase a variety of pressed prints or die cut items.
  • 6a0105358f3c48970b0134862ca249970c-500wiLandscape Design posts might discuss sustainable outdoor doghouses, planting a front yard garden or a water trough garden.  This topic appeals to our Kitchen K9 side as does the Treats and Food category!
  • One of our favorite categories carries the name – Make This Buy That.  No judgement, simply two options with links to resources.  We especially enjoyed the Raised Dog Feeder  and the Raised Dog Bed.  Mom would like to know if a handy manly-man arrives with the instructions!

We have to find out whether the NewfandHound’s human is affiliated with Etsy or simply enjoys viewing Etsy sites, because we read lots of Etsy references!  NewfandHound has a modern, clean format which we appreciate.  The tone of the writing stays modern too. (Their tag line is “We are 4 modern dogs living in a modern world! Join us on our adventures!” after all!) We would add the adjectives informative, creative, interesting, playful, and positive with gorgeous photos to boot!

Visit NewfandHound to see what Ernie, Hazel, Nooner and Foyle are up to.  Wish them a Merry Newfmas and Happy Houndlidays and let them know that Jetty sent ya!

Another great NewfandHound day!

  1. What a super cute bunch of pups! I will have to go and visit them. I love etsy, there are so many cute things to find on there. Sounds like they have a nice variety of topics on their blog.

    • Hey it’s Jet here. Hi Miss Ann.

      Right, we couldn’t agree more. (BTW, congrats on your sweet blogger award, we just read about it!)

      Mom had her knitted scarves on ETSY last year. Her friend placed them in her ETSY knitting store! We appreciate anything handcrafted. 🙂

  2. Hey, Jet! I will have to check out their blog since you recommended it! (And tell your mom Handy Manly Men don’t need instructions! Or at least they don’t think they do haha!) Have a wonderful weekend!

    • Hey Cooper, Hey June, Hey Buddy, Jet here. Hi Miss Laura.

      Gosh, thanks for saying my recommendation carries so much weight. 🙂

      Mom asked me to share that she forgot about that… she said something about same thing with directions??? I don’t get it myself! You too.

  3. Love your introduction to Newf and Hound. Great the way you highlighted particular favorites and it was fun following the links.

    Confess I might be a little tired because when you mentioned putting the crew on wooden coasters my mind went to roller coasters! 🙂 Glad you included a picture to clear things up.

    So glad you joined the Pet Blogger Gift exchange.

    • Hey Honey, Jet here. Hi Miss Pamela.

      Thank you for pairing us with such wonderful pals. Thanks for letting us know you enjoyed our post, that means a lot from such wonderful writers. 🙂

      BOL… must be wrapping too many presents, baking too many cookies, etc…

      We appreciate the effort you put forth creating and carrying out this wonderful idea. Hope you decide to repeat next year…

      Sending Jetty kisses and JJ hugs.

  4. Thanks for introducing us to another great blog…The “make this buy that” posts are great and the coconut chasing post brought back memories of my own Coconut Hounds…we will be visiting Newf & Hound often

  5. We heard about the blogger gift exchange but simply did not have enough time to get involved with it. It sounds like a great idea but mom and I have just too much going on. What a cute bunch you got paired with! Have a fun weekend! Emma 🙂

    • Hey Emma, Jet here. Hi Katie.

      With all your modeling appointments, holiday reading, holiday baking, who could blame you? Guess what? It runs until Jan. 6 if you’re still interested.

      I know, we lucked out big time! Enjoy your weekend as well. 🙂

  6. Hi Jetty,

    One of the things I love about this exchange is that we all get to learn about new blogs that we may not have found on our own – these guys live just down the road from me and I didn’t know, I’m gonna hop on over and say Hi 🙂

    Thanks for introducing us to them, loved your post buddy 🙂

    Big wags to all of you,

    Your pal Snoopy 🙂

    • Hey Snoopy, Jet here. Hi Miss Annette.

      Get out of town, dude! Really? How cool is that? Please do… would you keep us posted??

      Guess what? Your pawesome package arrived today… tell Mum great choice of envelopes! We’re going to open gently, add Mom’s autograph in the back with my pawtograph and then send it on up to GRSF! You two are so incredibly generous to do what you did. 🙂 We’ll let you know how much biscuit $ they raised after the silent auction.

      Thanks so much for the compliment, can’t wait until you all meet. 🙂

      Sending Jetty manly man chest bumps and JJ hugs …

  7. Hi sweet Jetty – How is your tail boo-boo today? It made me so sad to hear how awful your vet visit was and all the yucky aftercare like the cone and the ice pack. Praying you are better today! Love your new friends – adorable and newfies are one of my most favorite dog breeds! big snuggly gentle giants!!

    Also hoping Mom feels better today also!

    sending healing and get better soon hugs and kisses to you, JJ, Mom and Rachel xoxoxo

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

      So so, Miss Wendy. I’m still whimpering a bit and I’m scooting around the house really fast here and there trying to find “the right spot.” Mom’s still using lots of those tissue thingies! Glad you liked NewfandHound, we sure do!

      Tonight, I walked right over to Miss Mary Ann’s house for quick “Mr Handsome” lovies and then we went on our way for the evening constitutional.

      Thank you, your lovies will definitely speed up the process. xoxoxoxo Mom says, thanks, too. 🙂

  8. I luvluvluv the three of them together!! And I especially like this idea of a gift exchange that is all about encouragement and support, not tangible items…what you gave is the real gift we could all give each other all year…pawsome Jetty…Hi Miss Lori and JJ…paw hugs, Savannah

    • Hey Savvy, Your Champion here. Hi Miss Linda.

      Savvy, guess what? There are 4 of them… 3 doxies and a Newf!

      Awww, shucks, Savvy, thank you… we joined the exchange for the exact words you wrote… we like them so much we’re quoting them again! “encouragement and support, not tangible items…what you gave is the real gift we could all give each other all year.”

      From Mom and JJ: Hi Savannah, hugs from me (JJ) and ear scritches from me (Miss Lori)
