Hey It’s Jet Here.
Technically, Mom and I will complete this post on JJ’s official Gotcha Day, December 14th. Due to Mom’s cold/flu thingie and flow of posts, we’re posting Saturday.
Can you believe a year ago today, Little Miss JJ joined the family? Here’s how it happened:
After my golden sister, Koko, crossed *OTRB* in September 2011, we grieved. As you know, starting my blog lifted our spirits and has now become a treasured part of our lives. In November, 2011, Mom and Rachel thought they could no longer live in Casa Jet without A) another girl to even the odds (Puffy, Fluffy and I v. Mom and Rachel) and B) a GOLDEN!
Mom and Rachel began compulsively checking Golden Rescue South Florida’s website and FB page. They found a possible situation, visited the K9 in question and then… icky stuff happened. Let’s say the universe wanted us to wait. Rachel was crushed, Mom saddened and me… truthfully, I didn’t know any better.
Inner workings aside, Mom received a call from Miss Lisa at GRSF on December 13, 2012, that a 5-6 year old female was sprung from Miami Dade Animal Services and Mom could meet her the next night. Mom didn’t want to disappoint Rachel, so, she went alone. Two minutes in the door and that was that, JJ came home for
a sleepover FOREVER!
Mom opened the garage and told Rachel to get something in the kitchen after school the next day. Rachel did NOT show enthusiasm. Mom did the usual “beg the teenager thingie” and Rachel went in to find a golden tail swishing. Mom heard the expected squeal of delight. She and Mom named JJ, Skylar on the way to Dr. Schaffer’s to get Skylar checked out.
When we announced Skylar’s arrival, our blogpals did not join in agreement over the name. What did Mom do? She asked for submissions! Miss Wendy, (no doubt you’ve seen her in our comment queue), recommended both Joy and Jasmine. Since Mom liked Jasmine first and Rachel preferred Joy, they compromised with JJ. Mom thinks JJ fits way better anyway and she liked having another K9 with a “J” name. Little Miss Sweet, Spunky and Sassy quickly exhibited many personality traits on a daily basis, and we learned more and more about her as the time passed.
We’ll share more memories throughout the week.
Another great, JJ’s first Gotcha Day Celebration.
