Follow Up Friday – Buddy 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.  Beginning last week, she teamed up with Miss Linda, from 2 Brown Dawgs (Miss Linda who saved JJ’s life!) and turned her wonderful idea into a new blog hop!  Congrats!

Saturday: Buddy Sitting

JJ, Puffy, Mom and I continued Buddy, the Beagle, sitting.  We learned that Beagles have way different characteristics than retrievers.  We learned that Buddy could give the Energizer Bunny a run for the money as the little Dude never stopped moving.  Mom had trouble taking photos to show you how adorable he is.  Can you believe the guy actually waited for 10-15 minutes before eating his kibble?  Mom gave him lots of lovies during this time and eventually coaxed (VBP) him into eating.  JJ and I scarf our food in 1 minute!  Mom also mentioned how EASY Buddy walked, very little pulling… hint hint… What?

Sunday: Buddy Vision

During a 4 minute oxygen replenishment rest, Mom snapped a photo of the Budmeister to show you!

Mischief Monday: Buddy’s (Mis) Adventure

OMD, did the Bud-Man cause mischief!  Mom walked into his kitchen and found this!  If you think that was a good dose of mischief, wait until this Monday!  Looked like Buddy thought he was a beaver instead of a beagle!

Tasty Tuesday:  We Love Broccoli 

We couldn’t wait to share two broccoli recipes with you; one with raw broccoli and the other roasted!  Because Mom offered the glorious crucifer two ways, JJ and I received double the tidbits!  Many readers shared: that their K9s had never tried the green goodness, they themselves either loved or disliked the tree looking veg or they couldn’t wait to make either or both recipes! Do let us know if you try them.

Wordless Wednesday: Evo the Great

We all agree – Evo is exceptionally gorgeous, striking and regal!  Thank you for sharing your insights on this giant breed.  Mr. Matt will so appreciate your compliments on his special girl.

Thankful Thursday: Backlogged

Blogpals, you did it again; you understood, empathized (VBP) and supported how backlogged we have gotten.  Mom and I are beginning our efforts to catch up on the generous awards we have received.  This week, we acknowledged receipt of The Addictive Blog Award from Zena at The Princess Tails.  We love sharing our story and equally love passing awards on to other wonderful blogs.

 Another great Buddy/broccoli/Evo/Addictive Blog week!

P.S. Mr. Ron was super sick this last week, so, no resolution to week 4 of Mom’s Outlook problems… (poor lady may end up bald from pulling hair out!) Also, if you want to read a great post about the Meandering Mollie party, you MUST, MUST, MUST click here!

Follow Up Friday: Fur Friends Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

We’ve featured lots of fur friends this week.  Last Saturday, Mom shared her thoughts and feelings about seeing Austin again.  She and Austin reconnected quickly and they resumed their summer K9 sitting routine of wags, walks, tug, fetch, grooming, and lovies.  Austin couldn’t wait to show Mom how much he still enjoys playing with his rope!

Black and White Sunday:

We thought featuring Austin playing outside with his favorite Frisbee fit the bill and you agreed!

Mischief Monday:

Casa Jet gave a loud whoo hoo to Mom and Austin for their achievement on Saturday.  Austin interacted positively with his lady neighbor, Sparkle.  Sparkle’s human Mom, Miss Janet, and Mom ended up chatting in the middle of the street for quite some time as ladies often do.  (Jetty! Yes Mom? I know Mom, that’s a stereotype… but gosh Mom, as far as I can tell, it’s quite accurate.) Austin and Sparkle chilled out on the street; you would never know Austin has difficulty socializing with other K9s.

Tasty Tuesday:

Thanks to so many of you for the enthusiastic feedback on Mom’s Cranberry Dip Selection to welcome fall.  I hope all of you make it really soon, so your K9s can enjoy the yogurt as much as I did!

Wordless Wednesday:

Mr. Puffy Boy (as Mom likes to call him at times) got the nod for his “strike a pose” instead of helping Mom try to fix her ongoing Microsoft Outlook problems.  In addition, you read how he moves Mom’s file pile in a way that imitates falling leaves.  No, Mr. Ron did not visit Casa Jet Wednesday or Thursday, which bummed Mom out.

Thursday:

A sad, unexpected post shared a goodbye tribute as one of Mom’s acquaintances bid farewell to her angora goat, Penny, who crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this week.

We’ll feature another unexpected fur friend tomorrow… can you guess who?  Hint:  He’s a K9 from the neighborhood.

Another great, except for Penny’s crossing, fur friend, week.

P.S. Please keep paws/fingers crossed for Mom’s Outlook issue.  Mr. GoDaddy helped Mom about 55-60% yesterday with her Kitchen Counselor blog.

Follow Up Friday – Cucumber Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

Saturday: The Doctor was IN

Last Saturday, we concluded our remembrances of our sweet golden girl, Koko, by sharing a few of her Pet Therapy experiences at Miami Children’s Hospital.  So many of you warmly acknowledged Koko’s healing efforts, which meant a great deal to us.

Sunday: Black and White Vibes for Champ

Our anipals and their bipeds rock! We featured our K9 buddy, Champ, still waiting for his forever home.  Wowee, wow wow did you send good wishes, crossed fingers and paws and good vibes his way.  We’ll keep you posted as we learn more… and … thank you.

Monday: Outlook Understanding

While Mom remains in Outlook H-E Double Toothpicks, lots of bipeds acknowledged that Mom did not suffer alone.  I personally appreciate the solid advice you provide tech-challenged Mom.  She has an S-O-S out to her IT biped and awaits his reply.  (I’m hoping for faster rather than slower reply as Mom needs to access her folders to write her Kitchen Counselor Newsletter this weekend.

Tuesday: Danish Cukes

Miss Ellen and her family gave a hearty paws, I mean thumbs up for Mom’s cucumber dish, as did many of you.  Mom’s personal feedback; a bit too acidic for her tummy, she might try less vinegar or lemon juice for herself next time.  Lots of my fellow K9s gave high paws for cucumbers and a few of my pals did not know K9s could eat cucumbers.

No Technology Wednesday:

Due to the Jewish Holiday, Mom (who COULD have scheduled an auto post) missed our usual Wordless Wednesday.

Wordless Thursday?

Mom bent the rules and made up for WW on Thursday, featuring Gatsby, the newest addition to the anipal family at Mom’s office.  You guys (Mom’s NJ term of endearment), reacted like we did with a lot of awws, cute, adorable etc…  (Mom’s behind responding, she had her 2nd class of the week yesterday; Korean cooking on Monday night and Fall Vegetarian yesterday afternoon!)

Another great FUF – Cucumber edition, day!

Follow Up Friday – Koko Style

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

This week, we enjoyed sharing some memories of my golden sister, Koko, with you.  We can barely process that a year has passed since she crossed OTRB.  We began on Saturday by sharing how Koko came to live with Mom, Mr. Fred and my human sister, Rachel.  Mom realized that she’s goofed for years on the annual that Koko joined the family, 2004, not 2005!  Many of you enjoyed the Dog Fancy article.

Black and White Sunday – Mom’s Favorite

Mom shared her one of her favorite Koko photos which captured her essence.

Mischief Monday – Baking Class

Oh we got you laughing with this one.  You agreed that the lack of a photo was a total bummer!  As Mom reached into her memory files, she realized that fodder (VBP – vocab builder project) for several more Koko stories remain… stay tuned!

Tasty Tuesday – She Loved Red Peppers

Many of our anipals wrote in stating they did not know K9s could eat sweet red peppers and would now try it with their K9s.  Please let us know the results… JJ and I can’t wait to chomp on a few tidbits ourselves!

Wordless Wednesday – A Playdate with Nancy

Mom thinks our great white shark photo camouflages our marshmallow natures.  If you saw only that one photo of Koko and I, you would think we needed red zone collars, flashing danger lights or yellow warning signs.  As my special friend, Miss Wendy says, our “bitey faces” belie our marshmallow nature, we never chomp, we only “jaw” play with our buddies or family!  Oh, and lots of the ladies wrote in about my white poofy chest! (Dudes, who knew this would be such a chick magnet???)

Thursday – A Special Interview

Savannah, our BFF, (best feline friend), conducted a meaningful interview sharing my rescue story.  Her project, Real Rescue Dogs are Talking  elevates exposure for adopting older K9s and felines.  Savvy adroitly (VBP) teases out issues during the recovery process.  Thanks Savvy! (and Miss Linda!)

Another great memory filled day.

Follow Up Friday – K is for Kuma and other Tidbits

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

Black & White Sunday Hop:

The outpouring of lovies for my buddy, Barkley, after our first Black and White Sunday post, made Miss Wendy watery in her eyes.  We posted lots of her comments directly.  So many bipeds share their forever homes with adult K9s and felines and understand caring for a wizened (vocab building project VBP) senior  requires compassion, recalibrating (VBP) to the shifting meaning of “normal”, and acknowledging the grace exhibited (VBP) by the aging quadruped.  This week, my friend, Suka, had a post on the same topic this week, too.

Little Miss Delivery Girl

Great feedback on my sister’s new side business!  We may need to request artistic help from Miss Ann at Zoolatry when she feels super duper (GET BETTER SPEEDY QUICK Miss Ann!).  She would no doubt design the perfect delivery outfit for JJ!

Scrumptious Soldarity:

Boy did Mom receive an earful from my anipals on Tasty Tuesday!  That’s right… not enough sharing of the yumminess for ‘ol Jetty boy and JJ!  In fairness, I did let everyone know that since I’ve been exceedingly hesitant to leave the house due to booms and streaky lights, Mom wanted to watch the quantities of solids in my tummy.  The weather has held to overcast with short bursts of you know what the last two days, so, I’ve been more confident leaving the house in the evenings for my constitutionals.

Z is for Zebra:

Oh Mom goofed BIG TIME on Wednesday.  She referred to Miss Paola’s gorgeous Samoyed, Kuma as Zuma.  Mom and I spoke about this transcription error at length.  Turns out, Mom LOVES the letter Z!   Who knew?  From zipper and zigzag to Zachary (one of her preferred choices if Rachel had been a boy!) and zebra, the woman had “Z” on the brain!  Thank goodness, Miss Novroz and Mr. Colby pointed out that bear in Japanese is KUMA, so Mom could realize her error!

Lady Litchi:

Lady Litchfield Love wrote an extra special post about me this week.  We felt so honored, we reblogged it yesterday!  Of course we added the appropriate acceptance of her formal and graceful apology.  This lady has class aplenty.  She and Miss Susan do so much good for rescued animals around the world (especially in their native South Africa).  We again congratulate them for achieving blogroll status on Le Clown’s site via competition.

Phew, I need a snooze after this post!

Another great catch up day!

Winchester the Weathervane and other Tidbits

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

Last night, I almost left the garage to join the ladies for our evening constitutional… until the rumbling started.  I cowered (vocab building project VBP) and beelined right back into the house.  The ladies went on to meet Miss Mary Ann and Dixie at Max’s corner; however, even they abbreviated (VBP) their path because the multi-colored sky perplexed Miss Mary Ann, our resident meteorologist.  She and Mom counted the seconds between the lightning and the thunder and watched which way the storm was headed to determine the best course.  They eventually came upon good ‘ol Winchester, atop one of the houses looking like a weathervane!  Boy that guy has some feathers!

Tech Update:

Maybe all the storms knocked some electrical reasoning into our laundry room.  So far, shhhhhh, since Monday, our light switch/make all the equipment crazy issue, has subsided.  Mom gently flips the switch and watches the equipment like a hawk.  Oh those Mr. AT&T people… the only remaining naughty behavior is with the removal of the teensy wireless thingie, Mom’s new, SMART TV is dumb!  She’s dreading the inevitable 4th call in 8 weeks!  Mom’s Kitchen Counselor blog should be restored in about five more days; then the fun starts because she still must have a new company fix the former issues.  Baby steps…

Tasty Tuesday:

Miss Susan from Long Life Cats and Dogs commented that to her knowledge, she has never seen honeydew in S. Africa.  New headline: HONEYDEW – MIA IN S.A.!  We asked her whether she has access to other types of melons like: watermelon, cantaloupe, canary, Persian etc… as Mom’s faithful Kitchen K9, I await her reply.  Also, we congratulate LLCD for making Le Clown’s blogroll in a heated contest… read on to follow the drama.

Striking Chimera:

Because Mom will not permit me to FB or Tweet yet, we did not know how many of you already knew about the striking feline.  You did not seem to mind the repeat and wrote in similar observations of amazement, appreciation and wonderment at her coloring.  Several of you wanted verification that the picture was not “photshopped.”  From my Scooby Do Academy approved investigative skills, the answer is no.

Another great follow-up day.

Follow Up Friday: Lots of Tidbits

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea.

Forever Fluffy:

We have been inundated with kindness!  Mom and I continue to dig out of our comment pile.  We deeply apologize for tardy replies; we’re up to 50 something… bear with us we will answer every thoughtful soul who so graciously stopped by to offer condolences.  Also, thanks to our bestest feline friend, Savvy, and Miss Linda for commissioning such a beautiful badge from Miss Ann @ Zoolatry. We smile every time we scroll past it.

Speaking of Miss Ann, check out the auction going on to help her family’s medical situation.  Mom donated a $150 Sessions with the Kitchen Counselor gift certificate. Also, Savvy and Miss Linda, are looking for three good K9s!  (couldn’t resist writing that…)  In case you’ve missed it, my sweet Savannah hosts a monthly series, Life Changing Interviews with Savannah: Real Cat and Dog Rescues Are Talking…“, and while her feline slots filled up swiftly, three K9 slots remain. 

Blustery Mr. Hurricane/Tropical Storm Isaac:

Once again, the pet blogging community left Mom with her jaw hanging open.  The outpouring of genuine care, good wishes, concern, prayers, and support before AND after the storm passed us and deluged (vocab building project VBP) the Gulf Coast was extraordinary.  We passed on some preparation suggestions to Rumpy and family, who moved into the “H” zone the week before.  We tried to check on those blog families in the area as well.  Here’s what we know from our connections:

  • Miss Wendy, one of our bff’s from Golden Rescue S. Florida – everyone’s ok.
  • Miss Rebecca – our other bff from GRSF – took on water, wet vacced the inside of the house; waited for the water to drain and was planning to clean the debris in the backyard yesterday, before Jack did another drop and roll!
  • Miss Beverly and Neve’s daughter/human sister, husband and family – all ok, not sure if daughter’s house took on water yet, they’re still at another family member’s home.
  • My Grandma’s niece-in-law (she sent in name and now Mom cannot find it… darn) and Gus, the 120 lb K9 evacuated from their houseboat before the storm hit… so far, no further updates.
  • Miss Mary Ann’s friend, “Louisiana Lori” – everyone’s ok, (attending LSU game this weekend – good sign!) – fence down in parts, a few more house issues and some other family members yet to check in.

Avians:

Remember we worried about seeing only one blue macaw?  Miss Mary Ann first shared with us and then we saw for ourselves the duo flying magnificently overhead.  We hope they found cover during Mr. Blustery Tropical Storm Isaac.

Speaking of avians, we neglected to mention that during the few weeks of daily sightings, Miss Mary Ann named the arrogant persistent peacock! For those of you familiar with the TV show, M*A*S*H, Charles Winchester joined the unit after a few seasons.  He was a haughty (VBP) arrogant, know-it-all, who thought he was above everyone else, just like you know who!  So, may we present, Winchester the Peacock!

Another great catch up day.
