Follow Up Friday: Neve’s Birthday Stretch 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!  Congrats!

Saturday: A Little Afternoon Rest

Mom captured a few pics of JJ and I taking an afternoon siesta.  Of course, Little Miss Fastidious (VBP – vocab building project) had to complete her pedi before resting.  So many of you understood the need for the fuchsia cheetah sheet; yes, I’m secure in my manly man-ness to rock pink!

Sunday: Neve’s Birthday in Black and White

Gotta love my blogpals!  You so graciously sent in bowlfuls of birthday wishes for my pack pal.  Miss Beverly appreciated your comments as well.  Because of the color saturation choice, a few of you thought the pasta sauce Mr. Giovanni and Neve hovered over was a cake!!!  Mom goofed and shared that Neve celebrated turning 6, when in fact she turned lucky 7!

Mischief Monday:  Destruct-O-Pup

We promised a mighty juicy follow up to our pack pal, Buddy’s, MM post the week before and you agreed that we did not disappoint.  Many humans wrote humorous comments as well as understanding the underlying cause of Buddy’s wave of mischief:  he probably was scared and lonely.  Thank goodness Buddy’s human parents are so laid back; they took his misadventures in stride.

Tasty Tuesday:  Plums Two Ways

We look forward to this post, since we get to share tidbits in preparation!  As Mom’s faithful Kitchen K9s, we appreciate your positive feedback.  Lots of readers learned that you can roast plums.  Mom provided a step-by-step link for the recipe to show you the process she followed when she prepared the dish for her UMiami Diabetic Peer Support Group.

Wordless Wednesday: Neve’s Birthday Stretch

Mom firmly believes in celebrating birthdays from the weekend prior to the weekend after.  We featured Neve getting a “lift” so she could enjoy water out of our elevated bowls!

Thankful Thursday: Recovery & More Catching Up

FINALLY, a heaven sent visit from Mr. Ron and Mom’s computer issues have abated (VBP) for the most part… sure she lost her calendar with her blog radio guest schedules for the next 6 weeks, sure she can’t exactly use her prior emails, (she can peak but cannot open, copy, respond to, etc…) but… she can open Outlook and move forward.  Baby steps!

We graciously accepted two sweet awards from our pals Clowie and Misaki.  Mom only allowed us one cupcake each; we’re going to request another today and the next day and the next day until they disappear!  We agree with several readers that the best part of the award process is learning more about our blogpals.

Another great, birthday sweet week!

Good Luck Pup

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Mom attended a surprise party for one of her employers last night.  I found out that the employer’s yard spanned about 2 ½ times the yardage of my yard, plus it had a fence.  JJ and I would endlessly frolick in that type of yard, playing chase, digging to China, and taking a dip in the pool before rinsing off in the cabana shower!  Jet?  Yes Mom?  Oh, I digressed again?  Yes, Jetty, you did.  Whoops, ok, Mom, back to the story.

Anyway, the party had lots of activities including playing blackjack and poker for a gift card.  Mom’s employer LOVES to play poker with his friends.  Mom peaked in to watch; she finds gaming fascinating to observe.  Instead of watching the thirty or so humans in the room, this is what caught her attention.

Maddie, named after actress Madeline Kahn, in the midst of all the noise and commotion, slept as happy as a clam.  Mom thinks Maddie gave the eventual winner (the human sitting in front of her hind quarters extra good luck!

Another great and lucky day.

P.S.  Mom’s employer names all of his dogs after female movie stars, i.e. Gracie (Grace Allen, wife of George Burns),Doris (after Doris Day), you get the picture!

Happy Gotcha Day Mom!

Hey It’s Jet Here.

 
According to my Nana, today is Mom’s Gotcha Day.  I wanted to make sure she didn’t miss one extra minute.  JJ and I let her give us belly rubs and brushing from midnight to about 12:30 a.m. and then I woke her up at 4:38 a.m.  We snuggled until about 5:17 and then off we went to begin the day.

Mom’s day started to resemble this guy named Murphy, as in Murphy’s Law.  She told my Auntie Liz via the phone that she thought she should crawl back into bed and start over!  Lots of kind people including Nana, my human sister, Rachel, Grandpa etc… have wished her Happy Birthday.  What’s a birthday?

Jetty, that’s the day you were born, which sometimes differs from a Gotcha day.  If you do not have that information, the day you joined your forever family becomes your Gotcha Day.  For example, Koko’s Gotcha Day was 2/7/05, however, her birthday was sometime in 2002-2003.  JJ’s Gotcha Day is 12/14/11 and yours is 10/28/08.  

On behalf of me, JJ, Puffy and Fluffy, HAPPY GOTCHA/BIRTHDAY MOM!  More snuggles tonight to celebrate, after you feed us, walk us, give us snacks, walk us again, play with us etc…

Thanks so much Jetty, you four bring great joy, love and laughter into my life. 

Another great Gotcha/birthday.
