Happy Pumpkin Zucchini Bread Day!

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

Earlier this week, Mary Ann and Dixie delivered two plastic bags with deliciousness inside.  Mom made me wait one WHOLE DAY; 24 HOURS to devour eat some.  Jet, I had to wait until I figured out how to capture your enjoyment in pictures.  Sure Mom, if you say so.  To make matters worse, the three mini loaves of my FAVORITE pumpkin zucchini bread and two mini loaves of banana bread (new to me) went from Mary Ann’s hands to Mom’s to… the fridge.  Give a guy a chance!

My human sister, Rachel, helped Mom take my culinary experience to the next level.  I’ll show you in pictures… (the white stuff is Greek Yogurt.)

Then, Rachel told Mom to get ready with the camera …


Did I miss any crumbs?

On this Thanksgiving Day, aside from the usual mushy stuff like:

  • I’m thankful for my family.
  • I’m thankful for having a great pack, etc…

I’m thankful for Mary Ann and Dixie sharing their scrumptious pumpkin zucchini bread with me and hope Mom shares some banana bread with me today.  Jet, forgetting something?  Oh, yeah … and for being my BFFs.  That’s better.  Ok, Mom.

Another great and thankful day.


I Passed My Mouse Quiz

Yup, sure did, and it was a Pop Quiz at that.  My score will surely impress Scooby Doo Academy. Here’s how the quiz went down.

Last night, Mom and I sat on Maryann’s stoop waiting for the girls to get gussied up for our walk.  As Mom chatted with Aunt Liz by phone, I let out a low hum of a growl.  Mom kind of ignored me.  Jet, I thought you were trying to get Aunt Liz’s attention.  No Mom, I sensed an intruder.  Sure enough, within seconds Mom and I watched a cute little brown? dark grey? black? mouse scurry across the white rocks in Mary Ann’s little front garden area.  (I’m color blind and the twilight sky prevented Mom from correctly color coding the little critter.)

Mom told Mary Ann and I told Dixie as soon as they exited the front door.  Mary Ann asked detailed questions like:

MA:  Are you sure it wasn’t a rat?

ME:  Yes, too small.

MA:  Where exactly did you see it?

ME:  Crossing the white concrete pillar fence, then scurrying across the white rocks, then lost suspect as it continued moving north parallel to your bay window.

MA:  Why didn’t you take the mouse away?

ME:  On your behalf, I explained that you excel in herding because of your border collie nature, more than the retrieving part of you.   Thanks Mom.

Mary Ann understood and called her Dad, Mr. Jim, and told him to put it on this thing called a “To Do” list.

I’ll tell you about other Quizzes I passed regarding squirrels, iguanas which looked like platypuses, birds (large and small) and a peacock later…  I’m basking in the glow of educational excellence!
