I Already Have the Olympic Spirit

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Sorry I missed you yesterday, Mom said the day just slipped away from her… she promised me that slipped away did not equal procrastination (vocab builder).  Hmmm…

Anyway, here at Casa Jet, we LOVE the Olympics.  Koko, Mom and I enjoyed the Winter Olympics in 2010 together and now JJ, Mom and I will enjoy our first Summer Olympics together.  With permission, I must divulge (vocab builder) Mom gets misty-eyed during opening ceremonies when all the countries march into Olympic Stadium.  She asked me to share with the humans that she majored in history, international development and political science in college many moons ago.  Readers of my blog know she likes spectator sports, so the combination gives insight into her enjoyment of this worldwide spectacle.

We watched Miss Oprah’s Olympic Superstar episode this week.  All of the athletes interviewed stated they wanted to attain the ultimate level of excellence.  Miss Mary Lou said that everyone competing already achieved excellence before arriving; the difference between medaling and not came down to mental toughness and passion on that particular day.

I work on attaining excellence (with Mom of course) for my blog.  I do not compete with other blogs, rather I learn and grow from their excellence.  Without my blog, I would never have the opportunity to meet the following anipals representing their fine nations:

If we’ve missed some anipals, we apologize ahead of time, write in and let us know, we’ll edit immediately!

Another great, Olympic spirit, day.

Woofwide Wrestling Federation

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

I first practiced wrestling with my sister, Koko.  Here are two pictures of Koko and I in outdoor action captured by my friend, Nancy’s, human Mom. You’ll note Nancy serving as ref in one frame. 

 

Koko and I looked like we belonged in the movie Jaws, when in reality, we almost never left a scratch.  I loved Koko and allowed her to win sometimes so that she would keep playing with me.

After two months observing JJ’s moves, Mom and I think she’s ready to train for WWF.  We offer up the following moniker, which has received pawsitive feedback – THE CHEWMINATOR.  Imagine if you will, JJ trots down the aisle sporting a bedazzled pink satin cape with the name THE CHEWMINATOR in rhinestones down her spine.  When JJ pulls the Velcro straps with her teeth, the cape slides off revealing … a hot pink boxing style outfit with the Chewminator logo.  (All you graphic designers out there submit your logo ideas!)

As her steady wrestling/sparring partner, I, Jet aka “Mr. Handsome” feel qualified to comment on her skills:

  • She’s got quick paws,
  • Unending endurance,
  • Spunky bounce to her step,
  • Good jaw reflexes,
  • Fearlessness,
  • Bounce back ability when she falls off the bed, couch, ottoman, etc…
  • Good Sportsmanship (she LOVES to shake paws)
  • Doesn’t hold a grudge,
  • Unafraid of larger K9s (like me),
  • Long, lean, athletic body shape.

Just like the WWF for humans, JJ has her Woofwide Wrestling Federation signature move – THE UNDERPASS.  She throws this move in to confuse her opponents (again, usually me.)  She’s jawing with me, jumping on me, beside me, grabbing a back paw and then all of a sudden, she sneaks right under my belly as if I were the Brooklyn Bridge.  JJ throws down her UNDERPASS move so fast; one minute you’re looking for her on the left and she’s already on your right!

Hey, London Olympics start this summer, think we still have time?

Another great and sporty day.
