Follow Up Friday – Cone of Courage Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

follow-up-fridayOur 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 and has successfully turned her wonderful idea into a robust blog hop!

Before I begin, may I write a BIG THANK YOU for checking on Mom and I to see how we’re feeling.  I’m kerplopping less out on our walks; however, I’m still rather uncomfortable.  Mom says I tolerate the first aid spray and the goopy medicine very well.  The Cone of Courage remains on 24/7 to defray (VBP) my desire to bite/scratch the area.  Mom seems to have improved about 20%; she continues to feel like her head is under water!  She kept her promise and rested a good bit last week.

Saturday – Merry Newfmas and Happy Houndlidays

ernieWe enjoyed participating in The Pet Blogger Gift Exchange hosted by the fetching Honey and Miss Pamela.  Many of you already knew our giftee, Newf and Hound, while several of you looked forward to meeting them.  Guess what?  Turns out my buddy, Snoopy, lives really close to Hazel, Ernie, Nooner and Foyle and wants to meet them!  Super cool!

Sunday – Cone of Courage 

cone of courage 1We appreciated your feedback which ranged from acknowledging our efforts to “turn our frown, upside down” to making lemonade from lemons, etc… Mom asked me to share she’s glad you found the photo moving.  So many of you have my back on this one, I feel the love!

Monday – Scientific Mischief 

human tangled in dog leashYeah, you could relate to Little Miss Bird Dog and my urges to uh… stray from the strict scientific endeavor of participating in this year’s annual Bird Count.  Glad you got a kick out of our Boa Leash maneuver!  Of course you understood our efforts to keep that arrogant Winchester in line!  My BFF, Savannah, requested a quill from that peacock, which, we will happily try to find when he next molts!

Tuesday – Tasty Tuesday Christmas Style 

christmasWe wished our blogpal community celebrating Christmas the appropriate greetings and asked how to properly do so in a few cultures.  We learned that in a few countries, it’s proper to say Happy Christmas, as Merry Christmas might imply (VBP) debauchery!  We even learned how to send good wishes in Dutch from Suki, Hiro and Miss DiandaVrolijk Kerstfeest!

Wednesday – Now I’m a Leaping Lord

Wowee, wow wow!  Can you believe Miss Ann bestowed such a Royal title on ‘ol Jetty boy?  Thanks for the positive feedback on my new skills.  I think that I may be ready to learn the game of kings… POLO!  Several pals worried about my ego… I want to quash (VBP) the notion that I will change as a result of my recent Royal titles… I remain your humble Jetty.  If I begin to show any difference, Mom PROMISES to keep me in line!

Thursday – The Little Thingies 

shameless conesSo glad you feel the same way about gratitude for the “basics” (which are really a big deal, especially for those of us who had “before” times we do not want to think about.)  We all agree to take time each day to remind ourselves of how fortunate we are.  I’ll remind you, if you remind me!

As for my digression regarding the recent appointment of a new Secretary of State, our friends at the DogDaz Zoo wrote, “And you are so right about a Golden for Sec of State.”  I really feel Bo’s Dad made a mistake – there, I said it again!

Another great Follow Up Friday holiday edition.

Thankful Thursday – Unexpected Appreciation

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who celebrate!  May your day be filled with family, friends, gratitude, appreciation, joy and abundance.  My human sister is out of town this year.  She and Mom chatted last night.  Rachel initiated a discussion about expressing gratitude and appreciation daily, not just on one day.  Mom beamed with pride on her side of the phone!

So, you may recall that Mom edited Snoopy’s upcoming  Mischief Master Class Book recently.  Snoopy and his Mum graciously showed their appreciation in a post.  When Mom read the post to us, you could tell she felt grateful in her heart because her face had a special kind of smile on it.

Well, in addition to the post, on the Sunday Mom finished her editing… the doorbell rang as Mom was cooking dinner.  When she went to the door, a delivery person stood there with a gift.

Unexpected appreciation fills the recipient with a layered type of gratitude.  For Mom, the first layer was the excitement of receiving a gift.  Then, after reading the card, she felt acknowledged (VBP – vocab builder project) for her contribution to help make Snoopy’s project a great success.  She felt that Snoopy and his Mum received her efforts as intended – from her heart.

You know, sharing such a personal project with another human takes courage, faith, and trust.  Mom’s grateful Snoopy and his Mum took the leap of faith, allowing Mom to read and edit their wonderful project.  (She will have another read through after our morning constitutional, in about an hour!)

Another great unexpected appreciation day.

We recently joined the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop hosted by Pepi Smart Dog (formerly by Cokie the Cat!)

 

Wordless Wednesday – Gratitude Tomorrow

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Tomorrow we’ll be grateful, today we feel a little snarky.  Could be because Mom’s had 6 hours of sleep in 2 days… (yesterday might have been my fault, today was HERS!)

We thought we’d show you pics of K9s as turkeys and pilgrims, but let’s get serious…

‘Nuf said!

Another great turkey on my mind day.

Thanks to BlogPaws for sponsoring the Wordless Wednesday Hop.

Thank You Thursday
