Tasty Tuesday – Worth Waiting For

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Thanks to Sugar and Kol for initiating Tasty Tuesdays, today is our fifteenth  participating post!

Last night, well most of yesterday, really, we had storm bands pass through our area.  If you’re wondering why Mom and I did not hop much yesterday or respond to your wonderful comments, JJ and I kept Mom “otherwise engaged.”  We tried to wait for Miss Mary Ann and Dixie for our usual evening constitutional around 7:00/7:15 p.m., however, we could see the black sky moving towards Casa Jet.  Considering we could not empty our tanks in the mid afternoon, we NEEDED to get going.

Miss Beverly texted Mom right before dinner to ask if we had ear drops, because Neve’s ear was flaming red.  (Do we have ear drops!!!)  Mom called Miss Beverly right after we ate and asked:

  • Did she want to walk? (Yes if the weather held.)
  • Would she mind going earlier than usual? (No problem.)
  • Mom let her know she spoke with Miss Mary Ann who understood if we needed to leave before she could join us.

With a dark grey sky shifting to deeper shades quickly, we completed our exit left route.  Miss Beverly and Neve came into our house so Mom could share JJ’s Elizabethan collar.  Well, within minutes, the sky lit up, booms crashed, the pelting rain sound surprised even the humans and Miss Beverly and Neve were our guests for an unplanned 2 hour plus visit!  YIPPEE.

We had:

  • a one hour humans on the kitchen floor petting session,
  • a t.v. watching diversion for an hour (more petting)
  • and… the reason for this post… TREAT diversions!!!

Usually, Mom sticks to dental treats after walks.  We had our usual Hextra Chews and Neve tried a twistix.  (She loved it!)  Then for some EXCELLENT reason (Mom: thunder distraction) Miss Beverly offered Newman’s Own New Zealand Ranch Style Dog Treats (Lamb & Sweet Potato – no wheat, no corn… a prior gift from Miss Mary Ann and Dixie) A 12 paw recommendation! Mom thought we looked adorable and caught this shot.

Another great, please give us a storm break, day.

Moving Right Along

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Mom and Little Miss Wonder Dog slipped out on me again this morning.  Ok, maybe slipped out is a slight exaggeration.  Let’s just say Ol’ Jetty Boy fell for the “Jetty, look it’s a special treat” line from Mom again.  In fairness, Mom RARELY offers a pig ear because they’re greasy and a bit stinky to her, yet nectar from the heavens for me!  Oh, I’ve digressed again.

Anyway, considering this week’s craziness surrounding the garage door… is it up, is it down? Is it fixed? Can we use it? Do we go out the front door or the garage door?  … falling for the pig ear distraction is not that embarrassing.

As Mom told me…

JJ hopped right into the car so easily, Mom forgot to bring J’s leash!  She held JJ by the collar to bring her into Dr. Shaffer’s office and they offered their temporary purple leash right away.  JJ remained composed while happily visiting with Disney and her family.

This is the second week, JJ went “deer in the headlights”, when seeing a human in scrubs.  Dr. Shaffer came into the front to say hi to Disney and JJ and JJ half-heartedly wagged hello.  Then, one of the vet techs came out to take JJ to the scale and she snapped the leash’s little metal thingie and slinked herself right out the door into the crowded parking lot of the strip center.

Mom and the vet tech tried to call her back with no luck.  Mom resorted to the “JJ, let’s go in the car,” line and Little Miss “Not So Perfect” trotted into the back seat.  This time, they used 2 purple leashes, just in case and brought my sister back in.

To Mom’s dismay, after feeding JJ a lot more kibble (behind my Elizabethan Collar) this week, Little Miss “We Want HER Metabolism” held last week’s weight.  To Mom’s delight, JJ’s girlie girl area no longer exhibits irritation, her scar got the “looking good” from Dr. Shaffer and her UTI seems to be resolving appropriately.  Dr. Shaffer gave Little Miss Waxy Ears another earful of helping medicine with accompanying ear massage.  No visit for 2 weeks!

Another great, except for the great office escape, day.

Wordless Wednesday: Shakespeare Season? – So Soon?

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Mom, all I did was proactively take care of the unquenchable itch on my tail, like last year.  What? You do not want to visit Dr. Shaffer for this again… Why? We love visiting Dr. Shaffer… We don’t have another $500 of biscuit money in the budget for that type of visit? We have the right medicine? Oh swell…

Time for my Elizabethan collar? You sure?

How’s this for incognito?…

As long as I do not have to play the Queen this season, I’d prefer Othello.

Another great Shakespeare day.
