Prezzies? For Me? The Ultimate Gotcha Day Stretch

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Apparently, a secret zipped around the virtual highway between: Savannah and Miss Linda, Mollie, Alfie and Miss Stella (of Hannukatizing fame) and MOM.  Mom, clued in as a last resort, kept the secret until 4:36 a.m.  I’ll catch you up.

Savannah and Miss Linda sweetly decided to celebrate my Gotcha Day and my first Blogiversary.

They teamed up with Mollie, Alfie and Miss Stella to send a pawesome package of Mollie’s treats, PLUS Hannukah bandanas (specially made by Miss Stella after Miss Linda explained that we did not celebrate Christmas.)

Miss Stella, Mollie, and Alfie worked their fingers and paws to the bone to make beautiful treats.

They packaged them for safe travel.

The box flew over the big pond thingie…

And landed in the tropics at this place called CUSTOMS.

Here’s what we THINK happened next.

Barnie the Beagle, (that’s the only Custom’s K9 Mom has personally met), and his friends inspected said package.  Huh?  Something smells pawesome… *goes into alert mode*… not the usual naughty sniffs of that drug stuff… oh no… this could be… CHEESE? TREATS?  Better set this aside forever and hope my handler shares with me… weeks pass…Barnie to Custom’s human… What? The frenzy of ants mean it’s not cocaine? I made a mistake? (snickering inside… thinking… mistake? pshaw, I wanted the good stuff for myself!) Customs human…  Let’s send to designated recipient…

By this time, Miss Linda told Mom about my surprise and Miss Stella said NOT to eat said treats if we ever received them as they were no longer fresh.  Mom called Miss Linda immediately upon receipt last night. She opened the package for us this morning.

Even though we cannot review Mollie’s special treats, we know they were made with Vitamin L (love) and we deeply appreciate her kindness.  To my BFF (best feline friend, Savvy) and Miss Linda “the Thoughtful” thank you, thank you for all your kindness, generosity, and perseverance to mark our wonderful milestones.  We’ll model the bandannas during Hannukah.

Another great Gotcha Day/1st Blogiversary it takes a village to send Jetty boy a gift day!

We joined the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop hosted by Pepi Smart Dog (formerly by Cokie the Cat!)

Follow Up Friday – Question Mark 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!  We loved co-hosting last week, thanks  for the invitation.

Before we begin, we wanted to let you know that we decided to donate to help the animals challenged by Superstorm Sandy through Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.  We chose Best Friends, because in Mom’s experience, they walk the talk.  She’s followed them for about 15 years now and even took my human sister there to volunteer about 7 years ago.  We will also participate in some way with Heart Like a Dog’s “Dogs of Blogville” calendar contest, which will send help to a blogpal in need.

Saturday Pet Bloggers Hop – Blogiversary – Where did the Time Go?

Boy oh boy, how kind, generous and supportive you were, acknowledging our first year of blogging.  Some of you even thought Mom made the cake!  (not so… just a photo from Google Images!!)  We cannot express our appreciation of your open arms/paws.

Black & White Sunday – A Daylight Savings Time Riddle?

A resounding (VBP – vocab builder project) cheer for all of our blogpals who answered correctly!  I’m improving… I went from 4:10 to 4:38 to 4:43 to 6:00 (long election night walk and tv night!) to 5:12 to 5:20!  Our favorite comment suggested I had a black rug on top of me from the back of my head to my tail.  We responded that I would NEVER wear a toupee, I sprout naturally gorgeous black fluff!

 Mischief Monday – Guess Who Came to Dinner?

Simba of course!  Most of you feel he arrived in time for Mom’s yummy cooking.  While true, (and Mom says thanks by the way), we believe he knows we will welcome him when he escapes, keep him safe, (give him some tidbits), and play with him until his family arrives.  Several of you wanted to join us for dinner as well… Mom says… ANYTIME!

Tasty Tuesday – Who likes Fennel?

Surprisingly, Mom’s faithful Kitchen K9s do!  Oh yes, we got your attention on this one.  Lots of comments expressed curiosity and surprise about fennel in general and K9s eating it specifically!  Our pack mate Neve and Miss Beverly wrote in to share how much Neve enjoys thinly sliced fennel, while Miss Beverly prefers her fennel roasted!

Oh, Miss Wendy thought we were wearing coats, actually we had our Halloween costumes on because … it was HALLOWEEN!

Wordless Wednesday – Who needed a break from the election?

EVERYONE!!!  So glad you enjoyed the comic relief of Dudley’s video as much as we did; thanks to Mollie for sending in a comment describing how to post videos for Mom… Also, Little Miss Professional Paw Shaker has stayed grounded so far after winning her seat on the Happy, Happy commission!

Thankful Thursday – Who needs to Apologize?

MOM!  Yup, Mom went ROGUE, adlibbing a title I DID NOT APPROVE and scared a bunch of my blogpals to bits! Sorry, Mea Culpa etc… I will keep a shorter leash on her transcribing activities.  All are healthy at Casa Jet.

Glad we thought to share nicknames for seven inhabitants of Casa Jetty as part of our “Seven Things About Me” Award Procedure.  Now you have the inside scoop!  Gratitude again to our four pals who bestowed the award on us.

Another great question mark week.
