Our Sixth Black and White Sunday – Neve Turns 6

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

My packmate, Neve, the maltese/bijon mix who shares her home with Miss Beverly and Mr. Giovanni had a birthday this week.  Happy Birthday my friend!

Another great Happy Birthday Neve day!

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

Follow Up Friday – Buddy 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.  Beginning last week, she teamed up with Miss Linda, from 2 Brown Dawgs (Miss Linda who saved JJ’s life!) and turned her wonderful idea into a new blog hop!  Congrats!

Saturday: Buddy Sitting

JJ, Puffy, Mom and I continued Buddy, the Beagle, sitting.  We learned that Beagles have way different characteristics than retrievers.  We learned that Buddy could give the Energizer Bunny a run for the money as the little Dude never stopped moving.  Mom had trouble taking photos to show you how adorable he is.  Can you believe the guy actually waited for 10-15 minutes before eating his kibble?  Mom gave him lots of lovies during this time and eventually coaxed (VBP) him into eating.  JJ and I scarf our food in 1 minute!  Mom also mentioned how EASY Buddy walked, very little pulling… hint hint… What?

Sunday: Buddy Vision

During a 4 minute oxygen replenishment rest, Mom snapped a photo of the Budmeister to show you!

Mischief Monday: Buddy’s (Mis) Adventure

OMD, did the Bud-Man cause mischief!  Mom walked into his kitchen and found this!  If you think that was a good dose of mischief, wait until this Monday!  Looked like Buddy thought he was a beaver instead of a beagle!

Tasty Tuesday:  We Love Broccoli 

We couldn’t wait to share two broccoli recipes with you; one with raw broccoli and the other roasted!  Because Mom offered the glorious crucifer two ways, JJ and I received double the tidbits!  Many readers shared: that their K9s had never tried the green goodness, they themselves either loved or disliked the tree looking veg or they couldn’t wait to make either or both recipes! Do let us know if you try them.

Wordless Wednesday: Evo the Great

We all agree – Evo is exceptionally gorgeous, striking and regal!  Thank you for sharing your insights on this giant breed.  Mr. Matt will so appreciate your compliments on his special girl.

Thankful Thursday: Backlogged

Blogpals, you did it again; you understood, empathized (VBP) and supported how backlogged we have gotten.  Mom and I are beginning our efforts to catch up on the generous awards we have received.  This week, we acknowledged receipt of The Addictive Blog Award from Zena at The Princess Tails.  We love sharing our story and equally love passing awards on to other wonderful blogs.

 Another great Buddy/broccoli/Evo/Addictive Blog week!

P.S. Mr. Ron was super sick this last week, so, no resolution to week 4 of Mom’s Outlook problems… (poor lady may end up bald from pulling hair out!) Also, if you want to read a great post about the Meandering Mollie party, you MUST, MUST, MUST click here!

Our Fourth Black & White Sunday: Austin – My Favorite Frisbee

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Hi Guys, (Mom’s NJ term of endearment)

Please forgive us for not hopping around much since Friday.  Mom’s still in computer you know what!  Mr. Ron contacted Mom yesterday (your crossed fingers and paws obviously worked!) and he directed Mom over the phone to do all kinds of thingies… which, unfortunately did NOT resolve the problem.  In addition, she had no internet access all day.  😦

We’ll try to catch up today!  Now to the hop at hand:

Another great, Mom… where’s MY frisbee, day!

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

Our Third Black & White Sunday: Champ – Still Hoping

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Remember Champ?  He’s the bulldog mix parked (for now) @ Dr. Schaffer’s? Mom continues to scout for options.  The only one so far… if someone brings Champ to Friends Forever, they will show him @ Petsmart on the weekends. Cross your paws and fingers for this “less adoptable guy.”

Another great day to find a forever family.

Follow Up Friday – Koko Style

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

This week, we enjoyed sharing some memories of my golden sister, Koko, with you.  We can barely process that a year has passed since she crossed OTRB.  We began on Saturday by sharing how Koko came to live with Mom, Mr. Fred and my human sister, Rachel.  Mom realized that she’s goofed for years on the annual that Koko joined the family, 2004, not 2005!  Many of you enjoyed the Dog Fancy article.

Black and White Sunday – Mom’s Favorite

Mom shared her one of her favorite Koko photos which captured her essence.

Mischief Monday – Baking Class

Oh we got you laughing with this one.  You agreed that the lack of a photo was a total bummer!  As Mom reached into her memory files, she realized that fodder (VBP – vocab builder project) for several more Koko stories remain… stay tuned!

Tasty Tuesday – She Loved Red Peppers

Many of our anipals wrote in stating they did not know K9s could eat sweet red peppers and would now try it with their K9s.  Please let us know the results… JJ and I can’t wait to chomp on a few tidbits ourselves!

Wordless Wednesday – A Playdate with Nancy

Mom thinks our great white shark photo camouflages our marshmallow natures.  If you saw only that one photo of Koko and I, you would think we needed red zone collars, flashing danger lights or yellow warning signs.  As my special friend, Miss Wendy says, our “bitey faces” belie our marshmallow nature, we never chomp, we only “jaw” play with our buddies or family!  Oh, and lots of the ladies wrote in about my white poofy chest! (Dudes, who knew this would be such a chick magnet???)

Thursday – A Special Interview

Savannah, our BFF, (best feline friend), conducted a meaningful interview sharing my rescue story.  Her project, Real Rescue Dogs are Talking  elevates exposure for adopting older K9s and felines.  Savvy adroitly (VBP) teases out issues during the recovery process.  Thanks Savvy! (and Miss Linda!)

Another great memory filled day.

Our Second Black and White Sunday – Koko Week

Hey It’s Jet here.

For most of Koko’s life, Mom did not own a digital camera nor a smart phone.  She tried to obtain as many photos as she could when the opportunity presented itself.  Here’s one of her favorites because it captures Koko’s essence.  Mom’s workmate, now a full time photographer took the shot in our backyard in Fall 2008.

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

Follow Up Friday – K is for Kuma and other Tidbits

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

Black & White Sunday Hop:

The outpouring of lovies for my buddy, Barkley, after our first Black and White Sunday post, made Miss Wendy watery in her eyes.  We posted lots of her comments directly.  So many bipeds share their forever homes with adult K9s and felines and understand caring for a wizened (vocab building project VBP) senior  requires compassion, recalibrating (VBP) to the shifting meaning of “normal”, and acknowledging the grace exhibited (VBP) by the aging quadruped.  This week, my friend, Suka, had a post on the same topic this week, too.

Little Miss Delivery Girl

Great feedback on my sister’s new side business!  We may need to request artistic help from Miss Ann at Zoolatry when she feels super duper (GET BETTER SPEEDY QUICK Miss Ann!).  She would no doubt design the perfect delivery outfit for JJ!

Scrumptious Soldarity:

Boy did Mom receive an earful from my anipals on Tasty Tuesday!  That’s right… not enough sharing of the yumminess for ‘ol Jetty boy and JJ!  In fairness, I did let everyone know that since I’ve been exceedingly hesitant to leave the house due to booms and streaky lights, Mom wanted to watch the quantities of solids in my tummy.  The weather has held to overcast with short bursts of you know what the last two days, so, I’ve been more confident leaving the house in the evenings for my constitutionals.

Z is for Zebra:

Oh Mom goofed BIG TIME on Wednesday.  She referred to Miss Paola’s gorgeous Samoyed, Kuma as Zuma.  Mom and I spoke about this transcription error at length.  Turns out, Mom LOVES the letter Z!   Who knew?  From zipper and zigzag to Zachary (one of her preferred choices if Rachel had been a boy!) and zebra, the woman had “Z” on the brain!  Thank goodness, Miss Novroz and Mr. Colby pointed out that bear in Japanese is KUMA, so Mom could realize her error!

Lady Litchi:

Lady Litchfield Love wrote an extra special post about me this week.  We felt so honored, we reblogged it yesterday!  Of course we added the appropriate acceptance of her formal and graceful apology.  This lady has class aplenty.  She and Miss Susan do so much good for rescued animals around the world (especially in their native South Africa).  We again congratulate them for achieving blogroll status on Le Clown’s site via competition.

Phew, I need a snooze after this post!

Another great catch up day!
