Little Miss Golden Girl Got Her FIRST Naughty Speech

Hey It’s Jet Here.

**Mom’s putting a quick edit in to remind you that my friends from Chewy.com are having their Cyber Monday sale today!  No promo codes required!

Mom has wide flat feet that make her look a bit duck-like when she walks.  I’m not insulting her, I promise, she has “issues” with her feet.  Finding shoes is like a global treasure hunt.

When my human sister began attending summer camp in Maine, Mom found a shoe store (Coombs) near the original L.L. Bean in Freeport that carried companies she never heard of before.  Over the eight summers, she loaded up at that shoe store about three times.  Mom found unheard of “deals” in the store’s basement discount section!  The last visit reaped about four pair including sandals (almost never successful) and a pair of heels.  Now Mom wears heels about once a year, so the heels would last a good long time.

Unless… a certain golden furry creature decided to investigate the accessory.  I’m not certain how JJ discovered Mom’s heels as they rested in the same place for years.  Now, we’ve mentioned the several month old habit of JJ relocating Mom’s two pairs of sneakers all over the house.  To date, she’s never harmed them.  Look what Mom found last week:

The comparisons for evidentiary (VBP – vocab builder project) purposes (notice the slobber stains!):

Oh, Little Miss Happy Happy got her first serious naughty speech alright.  She even got repeats for a few days!  Until… Mom needed a photo for tonight’s post… picture perfect!

Another great, Little Miss Took Mom’s Heels day!

Follow Up Friday – Gratitude Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Before we begin, here’s last year’s Black Friday post!

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!  Check out her Dogs of Blogville Calendar and vote!  Proceeds from the upcoming sale will help 2 of our fellow bloggers hurt badly by Superstorm Sandy.

Saturday – A View from Above

After reading about the Puffster returning to drink from the “fountain of fresh water” otherwise known as Mom’s bathroom sink, many of you expressed your understanding and experiences when a loved one Crosses Over the Rainbow Bridge.  You see, ever since our Sweet Fluffy crossed in August, Puffy had not ascended (VBP – vocab builder project) to Mom’s sink, one of the places he and Fluffy visited together many times daily.

Thanks for the compliments on my wrestling move (the Disappearing Jetty), Little Miss Chewminator and I seem equally matched, I have more brawn, she has more strategic moves!  In the end, neither of us “win”, we enjoy the play.

Black & White Sunday – Greased Lightening 

When I posted about the appearance of my racing stripes which ultimately led Dr. Schaffer to determine I have hypothyroidism, a few of you asked to see the racing stripes Mom described in the post.  Since my coloring fits into the theme of the Sunday Blog hop, she tried to highlight each stripe on each of my front paws.  Oh did you guys (Mom’s NJ term of endearment) get a kick out of them!  You also enjoyed Mom’s reference to the car, Greased Lightening, from the play/movie GREASE.

Mischief Monday – Keyboard Woes

I personally want to express my gratitude for your caring and creative suggestions regarding Mom’s now wacky keyboard issues.  The poor woman is sprouting grey hairs by the millisecond!  Now, I cannot report any scientific evidence, however, I’m happy to share that since all of you sent your positive vibes our way… the keyboard has played nice for two whole days!!!

Tasty Tuesday – Green Cigars

Lots of positive feedback on Mom’s recipe brought big smiles to her face. JJ and I, Mom’s faithful Kitchen K-9s, continue to surprise and delight you with our ambitious palates!  You enjoyed seeing us chomp on our collard green stems.  A few humans and a few fellow K9s thought they might like to try their respective parts of the veggie!  My turtle friends at Underneath the Shell, had a great idea; they love the leaves and we love the stems so why not share?!

Wordless Wednesday – Turkey: The Money Shot

Oh we fooled some of you who thought that was me patiently waiting? for a proper serving of the yummy bird.  Nope, Mom had NO intention of cooking a turkey since she had plans to ABANDON Casa Jet for Thanksgiving dinner.  Hmpf.  She enjoyed turkey at Miss Mary Ann’s house where my friend, Dixie, had a proper seat at the table.  Double Hmpf.  Thank goodness Miss Mary Ann loves us enough to send a turkey tidbit doggie K9 bag home with Mom.  Considering Mom fed us 2.5 hours late for dinner, sharing the tidbits with us after setting her keys down was the LEAST she could do.  Ah, heck, we loved the tidbits, loved Mom for giving them to us, enjoyed our dinner, had a breezy constitutional and a swell evening with Mom afterward!

Thankful Thursday – Unexpected Appreciation

Lots of you expressed interest and excitement about Snoopy’s upcoming book which Mom recently edited.  Don’t forget to place it on your holiday lists; a portion of the proceeds will go to therapy dogs.

You agreed with Mom and I that Snoopy and his Mum sent such a thoughtful gift.  You also resonated (VBP) with Mom’s perspective on gratitude.

Another great gratitude filled FUF day.



Follow Up Friday – Weighty Issue 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!

Oh, Mom and I have a Hurricane Sandy donation follow-up to share before we begin our weekly roundup.  Remember Mom and I decided to donate to Best Friends Sandy Relief Fund?  Well, a few nights later, Mom’s minding the kitchen making her dinner when the phone rings.  Out of the blue, one of the founders of Best Friends says hello and tells her he wants to thank her for her donation.  Now, we wish we could share that the donation was monumental in size; however, truthfully, it was modest.  (Tough times at Casa Jet, like in many other homes.)

Mom shared why she selected Best Friends, that she and my human sister had volunteered there, and that I interviewed Miss Ledy Vankavage about BSL in the spring.  Mom offered my interviewing skills anytime he thought my blog could help.  Go Mom!  Mr. Best Friends thanked Mom and I for the offer, thanked us again for the donation and wished us a good evening.  Wow.

Saturday Pet Blogger Hop – DIY Houses

Mom found an article describing really cool, modern, unusual DIY K9 houses.  Unfortunately, we realized they mainly served more petite heritages than ‘ol Jetty boy!  We appreciated the creativity of our feline friends who thought some of the offerings would suit them just fine.  Our petite heritage pals shared which designs resonated (VBP – vocab builder project) with them best.  Finally, K9 pals considered part of the mid-size to extra large breeds like Little Miss Golden Girl and I, communicated that they, too, considered their human’s entire abode (VBP) their DIY K9 home!

Sunday – Black & White Blog Hop – Foreshadowing

We left you with a mystery, a clue in fact, to the subject of our upcoming Monday post.  While a few pals guessed, no one deduced (VBP – I’m on a roll!) the answer.  One reader said it looked like I was at the dentist instead of the doctor!!!

Mischief Monday Blog Hop – Sliding Scale

So many readers sent in supportive words about my need for a small amount of daily medicine for my hypothyroidism.  Many of my K9 blogpals said they live with the same condition or some of their fursiblings *OTRB* and present had this issue as well. A few of my human friends wrote that they have the same thingie, too!  Who knew?    I’m A-OK and deeply appreciated your kind words of support… and agreement about the whole weight taking in public!

Tasty Tuesday – Holiday String Beans

JJ and I, Mom’s faithful Kitchen K9s, appreciate your positive feedback about our recipe selections this week.  We do have a mindfulness apology though.  You see, our friend, Bacon, from Piglove, mentioned he would enjoy one of the recipes MINUS THE BACON.  Whoops, not very PC of Casa Jet.  We suggested that veggie bacon or turkey bacon could serve as proper substitutes.  A  few K9 responses mentioned the continued distaste for green veggies.  We threw in a hint; try a dab of peanut butter to get you started!

Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop – Maggie, finally!

After many years, Mom finally met Mr. David’s fur family member, Maggie.  When she downloaded the photo from her phone, we were amazed that the photo looked like a painting!  Among many complimentary comments, we had a few requests for a play date/date with the beautiful Maggie!  We’ll share your requests with Mr. David upon his return from that Honeymoon thingie!

Thankful Thursday – Frosty Paws!

We finally celebrated my Gotcha Day with the Frosty Paws gift certificate we won (first EVER win) from Adventures of a Dog Mom.  So many of you enjoyed our photos and said how much you love the delectable ice cream, too.  My buddy, Gizmo, gave me a pawesome present, his homemade recipe for Frosty Paws!  Mom entered the recipe into her Kitchen Counselor data base with Gizmo as the author of course.  We shared the recipe with Gizmo (for his recipe collection) and some pals in other countries that may not have access to the product.  Let us know if you want Mom to email you as well!  Thank you again for your Gotcha Day wishes.

Another yummy FUF day!
