Did You Hear the One About…

Hey It’s Jet Here.

So, Mom and I, (ok, Little Miss Happy, Happy, too), jumped up and down when we learned that Miss Annette and Snoopy published their Pawesome book on that Amazon place.

mischief master classWe did a longer happy dance when we realized Snoopy and his Mum generously gave Mom an editing credit.

Mischief Master Class [Kindle Edition] Annette Vivian (Author), Lori Moldovan (Editor)

Of course, if I, Mischief Minded Jetty, did not:

  1. Perform dashing fetes (VBP – vocab builder project) of Mischief,
  2. Expertly dictate same to Mom,
  3. Remind her to rapidly submit THREE posts to choose from (yes, because I’m THAT good!) when Snoopy requested, (Mom couldn’t pick the best… she’s too close to the talent!)

Oops, I digressed, got a little carried away with my new found 15 seconds of fame…

You see on Thursday morning, when I lovingly woke Mom at 4:30 a.m. to get a head start on her day, she came upon an email from a friend in Cayman.

Mr. Adam, “A friend of mine recommended this on Facebook and the name of the editor caught my eye.”   Mom nearly fell out of her chair.  How did Mr. Adam find Snoopy’s book one day after Miss Annette published it?

IMG_1302Mom has five friends downloading the book so far, we hope you will to.  Half of the profits go to help Therapy Dogs.  Mom has a fondness for therapy dogs as many of you know because she and my golden sister, Koko, volunteered at our local children’s hospital for 4.5 years.

Another great literary day!

P.S.  Big Happy Birthday Wishes to my Human Sister, Rachel! Xoxoxoxoxo

P.P.S.  If anyone would like my pawtograph, let me know… I promise to remain grounded Jetty, no celebrity tantrums here, uh uh, no paparazzi at Casa Jetty, no diva food requests, no drama …….

Thanks to Life With DogsConfessions of the Plume and Two Little Cavaliers for hosting the Saturday Blog Hop.

Follow Up Friday – Co-Host Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

I’m delighted and excited to join my pals Sampson and Delilah (and Miss Jodi of course!) in co-hosting today’s hop!  Sampson is a bit uncomfortable today, so, please hop over and send him some extra lovies!  Join us won’t you?

First Up:  Continued safe wishes for those affected by Sandy.  May your power get restored swiftly.  Please listen to the authorities regarding the safety of your water, downed power lines, debris and such.  Let us know how we can help when you can.

Please forgive our delay in responding to all your comments, we’re still digging out.  🙂

Saturday – Mom?  Ok, Mom went to Cleveland for her Summer Camp Reunion (after 35 years… and… in case you’re curious… her camp was in Maine!)  I gave her the day off!

Black and White Sunday: Golden Pumpkins

A newish blogpal, Miss Megan, posted great K9 stencils.  We selected JJ’s heritage to show you since mine was not represented.  Many of you responded that you wanted to go to Miss Megan’s site to see if you could find your heritages.  Now we have 365 days to find a talented pumpkin carver!

Mischief Monday: Hide and Seek

JJ and I scoured (VBP – vocab building project) the house for quite a while trying to find Mom.  As you already know, she had flown the coop and landed in Cleveland for the weekend!  Mom appreciated all the humans who commented that Moms need breaks every now and then to rejuvenate (Miss Jodi’s VBP word!).  Thanks for making sure that JJ and I received the proper care from Miss Angela (we did!).   The fur family members wrote in to confirm that Mom gave us the proper amounts of extra treats and lovies for taking time away… thanks for having our backs!

Tasty Tuesday: Orbs of Goodness

Bunches of you like tomatoes, whoo hoo!  The humans enjoyed the recipe; Mom really appreciated the comment about her always posting great and delicious recipes!  Dalton, from Wagg Foods in the UK offered to become another of Mom’s Kitchen K9s!  (Mom said the more the merrier!)

Wordless Wednesday: Jetter and Allie

Mom’s friend, Miss Shari (many of you thought Miss Shari was Mom in the photo!) shared her gorgeous goldendoodle, Allie with the Camp gang at her Sunday brunch.  By then, Mom felt severely fur deprived and gave Allie lots of lovies.  So many of you commented how beautiful you thought both Allie and Miss Shari are… correct in both regards!

I had to share the great Halloween Frankenweenie picture my friend Mollie made for me again.  Yes, I scared the fur off myself for all of you who asked!  Everyone wished us a Happy Halloween and we hope you had a great one, too.  My friend, Clowie said that Spain is just beginning to celebrate the holiday in the urban areas, but… not where she lives just yet.

Thankful Thursday:  Chewies for Gotcha Day 

Thank you for your gracious compliments on our first ever review.  Many of you appreciated my generous nature, sharing my gift certificate from Mr. Brent with JJ.  Mr. Brent confirmed that antler splits like the Moose split we ordered do not last as long as deer antlers.  Miss Dianda asked if they delivered to Europe… we emailed Mr. Brent and will let you know.

Mom promised a Gotcha Day stretch since she was out of town last Sunday, my formal Gotcha day… Chewy.com got my celebration off to an early start, even though Mom’s late!  So many of you wished me well, I’m still blushing with gratitude.

Another great co-hosting week!



Follow Up Friday: Neve’s Birthday Stretch 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 and recently turned her wonderful idea into a new blog hop!  Congrats!

Saturday: A Little Afternoon Rest

Mom captured a few pics of JJ and I taking an afternoon siesta.  Of course, Little Miss Fastidious (VBP – vocab building project) had to complete her pedi before resting.  So many of you understood the need for the fuchsia cheetah sheet; yes, I’m secure in my manly man-ness to rock pink!

Sunday: Neve’s Birthday in Black and White

Gotta love my blogpals!  You so graciously sent in bowlfuls of birthday wishes for my pack pal.  Miss Beverly appreciated your comments as well.  Because of the color saturation choice, a few of you thought the pasta sauce Mr. Giovanni and Neve hovered over was a cake!!!  Mom goofed and shared that Neve celebrated turning 6, when in fact she turned lucky 7!

Mischief Monday:  Destruct-O-Pup

We promised a mighty juicy follow up to our pack pal, Buddy’s, MM post the week before and you agreed that we did not disappoint.  Many humans wrote humorous comments as well as understanding the underlying cause of Buddy’s wave of mischief:  he probably was scared and lonely.  Thank goodness Buddy’s human parents are so laid back; they took his misadventures in stride.

Tasty Tuesday:  Plums Two Ways

We look forward to this post, since we get to share tidbits in preparation!  As Mom’s faithful Kitchen K9s, we appreciate your positive feedback.  Lots of readers learned that you can roast plums.  Mom provided a step-by-step link for the recipe to show you the process she followed when she prepared the dish for her UMiami Diabetic Peer Support Group.

Wordless Wednesday: Neve’s Birthday Stretch

Mom firmly believes in celebrating birthdays from the weekend prior to the weekend after.  We featured Neve getting a “lift” so she could enjoy water out of our elevated bowls!

Thankful Thursday: Recovery & More Catching Up

FINALLY, a heaven sent visit from Mr. Ron and Mom’s computer issues have abated (VBP) for the most part… sure she lost her calendar with her blog radio guest schedules for the next 6 weeks, sure she can’t exactly use her prior emails, (she can peak but cannot open, copy, respond to, etc…) but… she can open Outlook and move forward.  Baby steps!

We graciously accepted two sweet awards from our pals Clowie and Misaki.  Mom only allowed us one cupcake each; we’re going to request another today and the next day and the next day until they disappear!  We agree with several readers that the best part of the award process is learning more about our blogpals.

Another great, birthday sweet week!

Mom Did Apologize

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Mom advised me that during the next few days, her transcription time allotment for ol’ Jetty boy will shrink.  The reasons, well, I must say, they’re admirable.  As The Kitchen Counselor, Mom will teach a class to 30 people in the Cancer community tomorrow morning/afternoon.  Oh, our kitchen is aflutter in preparation.  Salmon, turkey, veggies, fruits, roasting nuts, and Japonica rice are a few of the items sending off aromas that can make a Kitchen K9 do the circular happy dance!

On Sunday, Mom will demonstrate Farmers Market goodies.  She’s not sharing those ideas yet, however I did overhear the mention of yummy cauliflower! On Tuesday, Mom will work with a diabetic support group as a member of the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine Family Health department team.  I heard rumblings of a Cinco de Mayo theme… muy bien!  (Oh, I never mentioned I’m a somewhat bilingual perro? (Spanish for dog!))

When I first met Mom, I did not respond to verbal commands well.  Mom then tried hand signals… better… then commands in Spanish and voila!  She laughed heartily I tell you!  She mostly speaks to me in English, however, my Auntie Angela, my Madrina (godmother in Spanish),  and Auntie Liz speak to me in Spanish sometimes.  And… as I’ve mentioned, my manly man friend, Giovanni, Neve’s dad, speaks to us in Italian!

Another great cultural day.
