Follow Up Friday – Hannukatized Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

boty-1starBefore we start our weekly roundup, we’re so excited to share the news that we received an award on Wednesday.  We promised to post about it yesterday, however, we ran out of steam.  (Mom’s fever got the best of her.)  One of our newish blogpals, Miss Ann from My Pawsitively Pets, bestowed the Pawesome Blog of the Year Award on us.  (You MUST read the post with Niblet imitating a Christmas ornament!)

Yippee, yahoo, wowee, wow, wow, fever and all, Mom joined us for a round of the Happy Dance.  We immediately send the award back to Miss Ann and promise to post a proper thank you, following the full rules and such next Thursday.

Thank you for bearing with us as we continue to dig out (and make progress) from our comment box filled with kind words of support and comfort regarding Puffy’s crossing.

Ok, on with FUF!

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!

Saturday – Did You Hear the One About…

mischief master classMy human sister, Rachel, could not believe how many of my pals wished her Happy Birthday.  On her behalf, we send out an 18 year old, like 3 in big K9 years, THANK YOU!

So many of you sent in news that you downloaded the book (great for holiday gifts!), looked forward to the soft cover edition (on its way), complimented my mischief skills, and complimented and thanked Mom for editing that Mom and I stayed permanently blushed the whole day!

Black & White Sunday – Life’s Simple Pleasures 

Many of you wondered how Little Miss I Have A New Toy fit that ball in her mouth.  Mom says she has a case of TMJ brewing!  JJ continues to favor that green ball, falling asleep with it just like that several times as Mom rubbed her belly.  She’s a funny one.  We must thank our young, human neighbor Ruby, for sharing one of her toys with JJ.

Monday Mischief – Phew Last Minute Mischief 

password mischiefGreat news!  Mr. Danny “the Wonderful” from Link2City, gave Mr. GoDaddy “the business” during two, 1.5 hour discussions on Monday and by Tuesday morning Mom’s Kitchen Counselor email worked like a charm.  Mr. Danny now manages Mom’s Kitchen Counselor website and Kitchen Counselor blog in addition to her Kitchen Counselor Newsletter eblast (which has been problem free since inception 3 years ago).  He’s almost finished repairing the mess that was the KC blog, so, Mom should be back posting there soon.  Thanks for sending in so many empathetic (VBP – vocab builder project) comments.  We appreciate and we’re sorry so many of you understand.

Tasty Tuesday – realdogs Eat Chicken Jerky Tenders 

5Lots of you commented on how cool it was that realdogs uses real dogs on their packages.  The Urban Hounds particularly enjoyed the photo on our package!  Can you believe we’re now part of Nip and Bones’ Baby Patches Testing Team? Whoo hoo!

The humans wrote to Mom and agreed with the idea of cutting the jerky in small pieces to make it last longer, HMPH… whose side are you on??? Everyone appreciated the all natural, grain free, made in the USA, two ingredient jerky.  Hey Mom? When can we have more?  (When you get a good run in!)

Wordless Wednesday – On Hannukatizing and Meeting Haley 

hannukatizing 2012Mr. Wil from Marking Your Territory, said “Hannukatizing is officially my new favorite holiday verb.”  Whoo hoo!  We received so many compliments on Mollie, Alfie and Miss Stella’s pawesome card.  Do pop over to Mollie’s blog and share your appreciation over there, too!

Haley’s story warmed your hearts as much as it did ours.  A few of the manly men inquired about a date with the lovely K9!

Thankful Thursday – Prezzies for me? The Ultimate Gotcha Day Stretch

17We need to clarify (VBP) that we are NOT blaming Barnie the Beagle! We feel the Customs humans did not take the time to read the CLEAR label stating Dog Treats and left my pawesome, ROYAL, gift box from Mollie’s Dog Treats, ordered by my BFF, Savannah, in a hot tropical corner somewhere for EIGHTEEN days before allowing the USPS to place said box at my door, along with an army of ants!

3We tenderly unwrapped each item to show you how thoughtful Savannah and Miss Linda were in sending me such a great Gotcha Day/1st Blogiversary gift and how special Mollie, Alfie, and Miss Stella’s efforts were in  baking and wrapping their artisan treats.

11Thanks for the advance compliments on how I will look in my Hannukah bandanna.  You may not have realized, Little Miss Always Accessorizing received one, too!  We’ll model for you next week!

Another great everything worked out week.

Prezzies? For Me? The Ultimate Gotcha Day Stretch

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Apparently, a secret zipped around the virtual highway between: Savannah and Miss Linda, Mollie, Alfie and Miss Stella (of Hannukatizing fame) and MOM.  Mom, clued in as a last resort, kept the secret until 4:36 a.m.  I’ll catch you up.

Savannah and Miss Linda sweetly decided to celebrate my Gotcha Day and my first Blogiversary.

They teamed up with Mollie, Alfie and Miss Stella to send a pawesome package of Mollie’s treats, PLUS Hannukah bandanas (specially made by Miss Stella after Miss Linda explained that we did not celebrate Christmas.)

Miss Stella, Mollie, and Alfie worked their fingers and paws to the bone to make beautiful treats.

They packaged them for safe travel.

The box flew over the big pond thingie…

And landed in the tropics at this place called CUSTOMS.

Here’s what we THINK happened next.

Barnie the Beagle, (that’s the only Custom’s K9 Mom has personally met), and his friends inspected said package.  Huh?  Something smells pawesome… *goes into alert mode*… not the usual naughty sniffs of that drug stuff… oh no… this could be… CHEESE? TREATS?  Better set this aside forever and hope my handler shares with me… weeks pass…Barnie to Custom’s human… What? The frenzy of ants mean it’s not cocaine? I made a mistake? (snickering inside… thinking… mistake? pshaw, I wanted the good stuff for myself!) Customs human…  Let’s send to designated recipient…

By this time, Miss Linda told Mom about my surprise and Miss Stella said NOT to eat said treats if we ever received them as they were no longer fresh.  Mom called Miss Linda immediately upon receipt last night. She opened the package for us this morning.

Even though we cannot review Mollie’s special treats, we know they were made with Vitamin L (love) and we deeply appreciate her kindness.  To my BFF (best feline friend, Savvy) and Miss Linda “the Thoughtful” thank you, thank you for all your kindness, generosity, and perseverance to mark our wonderful milestones.  We’ll model the bandannas during Hannukah.

Another great Gotcha Day/1st Blogiversary it takes a village to send Jetty boy a gift day!

We joined the Thankful Thursday Blog Hop hosted by Pepi Smart Dog (formerly by Cokie the Cat!)

Thinking of All of You – With Gratitude

Hey It’s Jet Here.

With our home’s tech issues, Mom’s work schedule this last week (she edited a 113 pg document in a 24 hour span, wrote her newsletter, in addition to her usual writing, reading, and work responsibilities) and monitoring the possible “H” Isaac “visit” we apologize for not responding to all of your kind thoughts of support, caring, love, and condolence on the passing of our sweet boy, Fluffy.  We promise to answer each comment… bear with us time wise.

Over the last while, my dear Savannah of Savannah’s Paw Tracks, and our newish anipals Mollie and Alfie bestowed a beautiful award on us.   The Rules: To accept the brand new Thinking of You award, one must link back to the one giving you the award, tell seven things you love and think about daily and then pass the award on to seven more blogs.  In honor of Fluffy, we will share seven things about his life.

  1.  He loved to drink water from Mom’s bathroom sink.
  2. He loved to chat with Mom… actually, he enjoyed speaking to everyone all the time!
  3. He loved to peer over Mom’s books with his chin in the spine.
  4. His special spot on the bed was Mom’s tummy.
  5. Even though he was low man on the pack totem pole, he gave Puffy great wrestling match challenges.
  6. He got along with us K9s easily.
  7. He allowed Rachel to dress him up when she was younger.

We’re going to break some rules and pass this award on to all of you who thought of us and our boy:  Please take the award with deepest appreciation and profound gratitude.

*By the way, please take a moment if you can to send your condolences and support to our friends at Dogs N Pawz, on the loss of their sweet girl, Shiloh this week.

** If by chance we drop off or do not hop by as we usually try to, know that we are preparing for that Isaac guy and/or have lost power as a result of Tropical Storm/Hurricane Isaac and we’ll be back as soon as power is restored.  To those in the “Cone of Uncertainty”, prepare and stay safe.  (Mom’s preparing Man Cave #2 for all of us if need be!)

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