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.

Mother’s Day – I’m Thinking Ahead Pt. 1

Hey It’s Jet Here.

I, Scooby Doo Academy trained, Jet the Gentleman, Boy of the House, etc… have thought long and hard… well if you count since early this morning as long and hard, about what to do for my human Mom on Sunday.  Here’s my thought process so far:

  • Idea: Give her a card from me, JJ, Fluffy and Puffy.
    • Issues:
      • We can’t hold a writing implement, need help to make a paw print, and cannot type on a keyboard.
      • No transportation to purchase one.
  • Idea: Let Mom sleep late on Sunday morning.
    • Issues:
      • I’ve got collie in me and we feel the need to herd at the crack of dawn.
      • It’s taken me 2+ years to train Mom to get up with me.
      • Our bladders and bellies need attending to.
  • Idea: As Mom’s Kitchen K9s, we can prepare a meal for her.
    • Issues:
      • We cannot help but QC (quality control) ourselves silly until the plate is empty.
      • Not allowed to use/touch anything hot.
      • No opposable thumbs.
      • Cannot retrieve our Tasty Tuesday Recipes (thanks to Kol and Sugar) from Mom’s Software.
  • Idea: Give her a spa day.
    • Issues:
      • I’m not sure I can get wet with my boo-boos.
      • JJ has … you know… girl issues right now.
      • Oh wait… Mom’s supposed to give US  a Spa Day.

Obviously, I need to call a 4-legged walkers only meeting in the house today to discuss more options…

Another great brainstorming day.
