Follow Up Friday – The Puffster 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!

I’ve got Mom transcribing my responses to your comments swiftly and thoughtfully… even though she came down with this “cold thingie” from the biscuit earning place.  We’re getting there…

Saturday – Mom Took the Pledge 

tidy cat litterWell, it turns out that many of you have taken similar pledges to celebrate the holidays in alternate ways.  We enjoyed reading the points that resonated with you most as well as your creative ideas.  Some comments expressed excitement to pursue the options presented.  Keep us posted; we’ll do the same.  Oh and in sad irony, the one black Friday purchase was returned for reasons Mom never expected this week.

Sunday – Like a Pig in Mud 

The Black & White Sunday Blog Hop could not have been more perfect to show off my enjoyment of our first experience at the Tropical Bark Park.  Take:

  • One handsome manly man K9 with fluffy black (with a smidge of white) fur,
  • Add lots of dirt,
  • Mix with wet, black, ooey gooey mud
  • And you get a Joyous Jetty Boy who will endure Spa Day upon returning home!

Mischief Monday – LMP Loses Her Title Due to a Beige Shoe

4The ladies in Blogville sure got behind Mom on this one!  Little Miss Perfect moved from simply relocating Mom’s sneakers to removing Mom’s one and only pair of emergency, semi-comfortable heels and redesigning one of them.  A debate remains as to whether in K9 parlance (VBP – vocab builder project) this means JJ has the shoe “gene”.

Tuesday – Sad News and Good Mews 

Unfortunately, we began our post with the sad news that Puffy had unexpectedly crossed over the Rainbow Bridge Monday Morning.  Miss Linda and my BFF (best feline friend) Savvy from Savannah’s Paw Tracks had already alerted Miss Ann from Zoolatry by the time Mom returned home from the biscuit earning place.  In Mom’s inbox was this beautiful badge and on our blog kind and thoughtful comments poured in from around the world.  Thank you, it really helps.

Puffy Forever

We also shared Good Mews Feline Shelter’s Cookbook info.  This no-kill, cage free shelter will take the book profits and use them to help the felines in residence – PAWESOME.  Mom contributed a recipe for the book, btw!

Wordless Wednesday – We Feel the Love 

https://heyitsjethere.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/sending-love-5.jpg?w=150&h=94Comments continued to land in our inbox comforting us about Puffy’s crossing.  We  feel wrapped in love, support and comfort from our Blogville extended family.  You all continue to amaze us with your thoughtfulness and support.

Thankful Thursday – Mom’s Promise to Puffy 

Thanks for reading a rather long (even for us!) tribute sharing some memories and photos of Puffy.  So many of you commented that after reading you felt like you knew him; we could not have asked for better feedback!  A few of you inquired about his additional mischief… I’ll see if I can get Mom to move some memories from the back of her head to the front and share them over the next while!

Another great supportive day.

Follow Up Friday – Koko Style

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.

This week, we enjoyed sharing some memories of my golden sister, Koko, with you.  We can barely process that a year has passed since she crossed OTRB.  We began on Saturday by sharing how Koko came to live with Mom, Mr. Fred and my human sister, Rachel.  Mom realized that she’s goofed for years on the annual that Koko joined the family, 2004, not 2005!  Many of you enjoyed the Dog Fancy article.

Black and White Sunday – Mom’s Favorite

Mom shared her one of her favorite Koko photos which captured her essence.

Mischief Monday – Baking Class

Oh we got you laughing with this one.  You agreed that the lack of a photo was a total bummer!  As Mom reached into her memory files, she realized that fodder (VBP – vocab builder project) for several more Koko stories remain… stay tuned!

Tasty Tuesday – She Loved Red Peppers

Many of our anipals wrote in stating they did not know K9s could eat sweet red peppers and would now try it with their K9s.  Please let us know the results… JJ and I can’t wait to chomp on a few tidbits ourselves!

Wordless Wednesday – A Playdate with Nancy

Mom thinks our great white shark photo camouflages our marshmallow natures.  If you saw only that one photo of Koko and I, you would think we needed red zone collars, flashing danger lights or yellow warning signs.  As my special friend, Miss Wendy says, our “bitey faces” belie our marshmallow nature, we never chomp, we only “jaw” play with our buddies or family!  Oh, and lots of the ladies wrote in about my white poofy chest! (Dudes, who knew this would be such a chick magnet???)

Thursday – A Special Interview

Savannah, our BFF, (best feline friend), conducted a meaningful interview sharing my rescue story.  Her project, Real Rescue Dogs are Talking  elevates exposure for adopting older K9s and felines.  Savvy adroitly (VBP) teases out issues during the recovery process.  Thanks Savvy! (and Miss Linda!)

Another great memory filled day.
