Hey It’s Jet Here.
Happy and HEALTHY New Year. Did you party, celebrate, let your fur down, cavort? (VBP – using the meaning jump or dance excitedly for cavort, not the “other” meaning.) Well, here at Casa Jet, getting through the night without stressing too much was a victory.
When the fireworks began, Mom gave us special chew treats which kept us distracted fairly well until the stronger, more frequent booms began. Mom then laid out an old comforter on the floor beside her bed, put her sleeping wedges on it, and watched TV while I mostly stayed panting heavily beside her. I had protection from Mom, her bed and her bedside table.
Little Miss Barkarooni yelled at EACH and EVERY firework. She barked from about 8 until 2 something when the fireworks began to subside. How she doesn’t have laryngitis today, we don’t know!
Whoops, I digressed again…
Anyway, we selected water today, because it’s simply… essential. After a night of panting and/or barking, water will re-hydrate our cells and make us feel better. I woke Mom at 5 a.m. to ask for a bowlful and drank the WHOLE THING!
You know what I had to do by 6 a.m.! Mom adds ice cubes to our water dish most of the year because the water exiting our tap measures lukewarm. Right now, the water arrives in our bowl at a lovely cool temperature which Little Miss Agua and I find refreshing.
Mom says that many humans will need to rehydrate with refreshing water today, too. Something about too much imbibing (VBP), rich foods, etc… She told us that lots of humans find H2O boring! Huh? She suggests adding a slice of lemon or lime, some of those new, all natural little flavor packets, or a splash of your favorite juice.
If you prefer a hot beverage, no worries! You can brew ginger, mint or chamomile tea which combines water with tummy helping plants.
Another great water-licious day!
