Follow Up Friday – Co-Host Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

I’m delighted and excited to join my pals Sampson and Delilah (and Miss Jodi of course!) in co-hosting today’s hop!  Sampson is a bit uncomfortable today, so, please hop over and send him some extra lovies!  Join us won’t you?

First Up:  Continued safe wishes for those affected by Sandy.  May your power get restored swiftly.  Please listen to the authorities regarding the safety of your water, downed power lines, debris and such.  Let us know how we can help when you can.

Please forgive our delay in responding to all your comments, we’re still digging out.  🙂

Saturday – Mom?  Ok, Mom went to Cleveland for her Summer Camp Reunion (after 35 years… and… in case you’re curious… her camp was in Maine!)  I gave her the day off!

Black and White Sunday: Golden Pumpkins

A newish blogpal, Miss Megan, posted great K9 stencils.  We selected JJ’s heritage to show you since mine was not represented.  Many of you responded that you wanted to go to Miss Megan’s site to see if you could find your heritages.  Now we have 365 days to find a talented pumpkin carver!

Mischief Monday: Hide and Seek

JJ and I scoured (VBP – vocab building project) the house for quite a while trying to find Mom.  As you already know, she had flown the coop and landed in Cleveland for the weekend!  Mom appreciated all the humans who commented that Moms need breaks every now and then to rejuvenate (Miss Jodi’s VBP word!).  Thanks for making sure that JJ and I received the proper care from Miss Angela (we did!).   The fur family members wrote in to confirm that Mom gave us the proper amounts of extra treats and lovies for taking time away… thanks for having our backs!

Tasty Tuesday: Orbs of Goodness

Bunches of you like tomatoes, whoo hoo!  The humans enjoyed the recipe; Mom really appreciated the comment about her always posting great and delicious recipes!  Dalton, from Wagg Foods in the UK offered to become another of Mom’s Kitchen K9s!  (Mom said the more the merrier!)

Wordless Wednesday: Jetter and Allie

Mom’s friend, Miss Shari (many of you thought Miss Shari was Mom in the photo!) shared her gorgeous goldendoodle, Allie with the Camp gang at her Sunday brunch.  By then, Mom felt severely fur deprived and gave Allie lots of lovies.  So many of you commented how beautiful you thought both Allie and Miss Shari are… correct in both regards!

I had to share the great Halloween Frankenweenie picture my friend Mollie made for me again.  Yes, I scared the fur off myself for all of you who asked!  Everyone wished us a Happy Halloween and we hope you had a great one, too.  My friend, Clowie said that Spain is just beginning to celebrate the holiday in the urban areas, but… not where she lives just yet.

Thankful Thursday:  Chewies for Gotcha Day 

Thank you for your gracious compliments on our first ever review.  Many of you appreciated my generous nature, sharing my gift certificate from Mr. Brent with JJ.  Mr. Brent confirmed that antler splits like the Moose split we ordered do not last as long as deer antlers.  Miss Dianda asked if they delivered to Europe… we emailed Mr. Brent and will let you know.

Mom promised a Gotcha Day stretch since she was out of town last Sunday, my formal Gotcha day… Chewy.com got my celebration off to an early start, even though Mom’s late!  So many of you wished me well, I’m still blushing with gratitude.

Another great co-hosting week!

Thankful Thursday: Chewies for Gotcha Day

Hey It’s Jet Here.

As you probably know by now, Mom presented a somewhat reasonable explanation for delaying my Gotcha Day celebration, which should have been this past Sunday.  (Summer Camp Reunion, 35 years in the making!)  More on my belated special day in upcoming posts.

While Mom will be late, a certain Mr. Brent started my Gotcha Day celebration EARLY!  For the FIRST TIME, Mom and I were contacted to review a company’s services.  Mr. Brent from Chewy.com  reached out and asked if we would like to try out their website.  Mom’s first response… “Jetty, you can finally earn your own biscuit $!”  Even tech challenged Mom navigated the site with ease, toggling between companies, checking her cart,  and searching items swiftly.  We give Chewy a 10 on the “user friendly” scale!

We think Chewy.com has Casa Jet on speed dial or something because when Mom and I made our decisions and placed our order mid-morning on Thursday, by Saturday our treats had arrived.  Seriously?  Faster than the pony express, carrier pigeons, or lamborginis we’re still wondering how my special box arrived so quickly.

We really needed some new chewy (pun intended!) toys so we focused on that part of the site.  We appreciated the myriad (VBP – vocab building project) of natural products (moose, deer and elk antlers) with the country of origin noted as well as the broad selection of BPA free chew toys (including some recycled products).  As the family guy I am, I split my gift certificate with JJ.  Here’s what we purchased.

 Since Mom purchased one for JJ a few months ago, and she loves it too dearly to share, I asked Mom if I could have one too, only in manly man colors!

Finally, I get to enjoy…

Because I, ahem, love her, I selected two new toys for Little Miss Chewminator.

Rated as a tough toy by Zany, “you know who” ripped through it in 15 min, destuffifying the poor boomerang’s guts all over the couch.  Can’t recommend this for chewers 7+ on the chewing scale… a pricey 15 min!

JJ LOVES the 2nd toy; Mom and I thought the design rocked.  Mom rarely places treats inside (we live in the buggy tropics), however, JJ barely notices.

Mom thought I might enjoy giving the toy a test run… before losing possession forever to Little Miss Mine, Mine, Mine!

Since JJ absconded (VBP) with my deer antler 6 months ago, (actually 2 of them!) Mom thought she would try moose for me.

She gave it to me right before bed, since JJ keeps her antlers in Mom’s bed!

Good news/bad news.  I LOVED the antler so much… I devoured the treat in less than 24 hours… which made for a pricey treat!  Mom thinks she might try elk next time.  Usually, antlers last forever, so, we think maybe the moose antler might have been sliced instead of whole or something.

Another thanks to Chewy.com day!
