Follow Up Friday – Hannukatized Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

boty-1starBefore we start our weekly roundup, we’re so excited to share the news that we received an award on Wednesday.  We promised to post about it yesterday, however, we ran out of steam.  (Mom’s fever got the best of her.)  One of our newish blogpals, Miss Ann from My Pawsitively Pets, bestowed the Pawesome Blog of the Year Award on us.  (You MUST read the post with Niblet imitating a Christmas ornament!)

Yippee, yahoo, wowee, wow, wow, fever and all, Mom joined us for a round of the Happy Dance.  We immediately send the award back to Miss Ann and promise to post a proper thank you, following the full rules and such next Thursday.

Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to dig out (and make progress) from our comment box filled with kind words of support and comfort regarding Puffy’s crossing.

Ok, on with FUF!

follow-up-fridayOur 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 has successfully turned her wonderful idea into a robust blog hop!

Saturday – Did You Hear the One About…

mischief master classMy human sister, Rachel, could not believe how many of my pals wished her Happy Birthday.  On her behalf, we send out an 18 year old, like 3 in big K9 years, THANK YOU!

So many of you sent in news that you downloaded the book (great for holiday gifts!), looked forward to the soft cover edition (on its way), complimented my mischief skills, and complimented and thanked Mom for editing that Mom and I stayed permanently blushed the whole day!

Black & White Sunday – Life’s Simple Pleasures 

Many of you wondered how Little Miss I Have A New Toy fit that ball in her mouth.  Mom says she has a case of TMJ brewing!  JJ continues to favor that green ball, falling asleep with it just like that several times as Mom rubbed her belly.  She’s a funny one.  We must thank our young, human neighbor Ruby, for sharing one of her toys with JJ.

Monday Mischief – Phew Last Minute Mischief 

password mischiefGreat news!  Mr. Danny “the Wonderful” from Link2City, gave Mr. GoDaddy “the business” during two, 1.5 hour discussions on Monday and by Tuesday morning Mom’s Kitchen Counselor email worked like a charm.  Mr. Danny now manages Mom’s Kitchen Counselor website and Kitchen Counselor blog in addition to her Kitchen Counselor Newsletter eblast (which has been problem free since inception 3 years ago).  He’s almost finished repairing the mess that was the KC blog, so, Mom should be back posting there soon.  Thanks for sending in so many empathetic (VBP – vocab builder project) comments.  We appreciate and we’re sorry so many of you understand.

Tasty Tuesday – realdogs Eat Chicken Jerky Tenders 

5Lots of you commented on how cool it was that realdogs uses real dogs on their packages.  The Urban Hounds particularly enjoyed the photo on our package!  Can you believe we’re now part of Nip and Bones’ Baby Patches Testing Team? Whoo hoo!

The humans wrote to Mom and agreed with the idea of cutting the jerky in small pieces to make it last longer, HMPH… whose side are you on??? Everyone appreciated the all natural, grain free, made in the USA, two ingredient jerky.  Hey Mom? When can we have more?  (When you get a good run in!)

Wordless Wednesday – On Hannukatizing and Meeting Haley 

hannukatizing 2012Mr. Wil from Marking Your Territory, said “Hannukatizing is officially my new favorite holiday verb.”  Whoo hoo!  We received so many compliments on Mollie, Alfie and Miss Stella’s pawesome card.  Do pop over to Mollie’s blog and share your appreciation over there, too!

Haley’s story warmed your hearts as much as it did ours.  A few of the manly men inquired about a date with the lovely K9!

Thankful Thursday – Prezzies for me? The Ultimate Gotcha Day Stretch

17We need to clarify (VBP) that we are NOT blaming Barnie the Beagle! We feel the Customs humans did not take the time to read the CLEAR label stating Dog Treats and left my pawesome, ROYAL, gift box from Mollie’s Dog Treats, ordered by my BFF, Savannah, in a hot tropical corner somewhere for EIGHTEEN days before allowing the USPS to place said box at my door, along with an army of ants!

3We tenderly unwrapped each item to show you how thoughtful Savannah and Miss Linda were in sending me such a great Gotcha Day/1st Blogiversary gift and how special Mollie, Alfie, and Miss Stella’s efforts were in  baking and wrapping their artisan treats.

11Thanks for the advance compliments on how I will look in my Hannukah bandanna.  You may not have realized, Little Miss Always Accessorizing received one, too!  We’ll model for you next week!

Another great everything worked out week.

Thankful Thursday – Unexpected Appreciation

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate!  May your day be filled with family, friends, gratitude, appreciation, joy and abundance.  My human sister is out of town this year.  She and Mom chatted last night.  Rachel initiated a discussion about expressing gratitude and appreciation daily, not just on one day.  Mom beamed with pride on her side of the phone!

So, you may recall that Mom edited Snoopy’s upcoming  Mischief Master Class Book recently.  Snoopy and his Mum graciously showed their appreciation in a post.  When Mom read the post to us, you could tell she felt grateful in her heart because her face had a special kind of smile on it.

Well, in addition to the post, on the Sunday Mom finished her editing… the doorbell rang as Mom was cooking dinner.  When she went to the door, a delivery person stood there with a gift.

Unexpected appreciation fills the recipient with a layered type of gratitude.  For Mom, the first layer was the excitement of receiving a gift.  Then, after reading the card, she felt acknowledged (VBP – vocab builder project) for her contribution to help make Snoopy’s project a great success.  She felt that Snoopy and his Mum received her efforts as intended – from her heart.

You know, sharing such a personal project with another human takes courage, faith, and trust.  Mom’s grateful Snoopy and his Mum took the leap of faith, allowing Mom to read and edit their wonderful project.  (She will have another read through after our morning constitutional, in about an hour!)

Another great unexpected appreciation day.
