Mother’s Day – Not Much Needed After All

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Before addressing Mother’s Day, Mom and I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who wrote, air expressed, barked, meowed, called, texted and emailed to see how JJ was/is doing.  We are deeply moved and feel so fortunate to have crossed all of your paths.

JJ slept well and has passed all of the “musts” after surgery: eat, drink, eliminate, meds.  Her bubbly personality returned at least 50% today.  She’s fussing a little with her girlie-girl areas so Mom went out and bought a SWANKY Cone.  (How come I have the old fashioned model? huh?) She can’t quite figure how to work it yet, though.

What amazed us is the small size of the scar and her naked belly.  I’m trying so hard to Nurse Jetty JJ, however, Dr. Shaffer said I cannot, even though I’m well intentioned.  Does that mean I need continuing ed credits to learn different skills?

Oh, Mom’s trying that distracting technique thingie where you give JJ something to chew to divert her from her surgery area.

Other than that, we’re keeping a low profile today.

Back to Mom…

As it turns out, she seems quite content to celebrate her day with a morning nap, a card from Rachel, knowing JJ is ok and improving, company from all four of us (me, JJ, Puffy and Fluffy) and the HEAT game against this team called the Pacers, which she will watch after she posts this.  (She’s dvr-ing it right now!)  Love you Mom.  Love All of You, too, Jetty!

Another great Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day – I’m Thinking Slightly Less Ahead Pt. 2

Hey It’s Jet Here.

After yesterday’s post and in between playing, wrestling with JJ, napping, guarding the house, did I mention napping?, I found some time to continue thinking ahead for Mother’s Day.   The 4-legged family member meeting came up with the following brainstorming ideas:

  • Idea: Give her flowers from me, JJ, Fluffy and Puffy.
    • Issues:
      • She’s allergic to many varieties, what if I select the wrong kind.
      • If we pick, well really bite local neighborhood varieties, we could get in trouble and they would arrive, well, smooshed.
      • Puffy and Fluffy eat them and throw up everywhere for days.
  • Give her a gift card.
    • Issues:
      • We haven’t received a raise in our allowance (currently $0) in years.
      • No transportation
      • Too many choices for a Manly Man like me.
  • Take her to the park.
    • Issues:
      • JJ and I could not honestly focus on Mom.
      • Miami? What was I thinking?  Mom and I would sweat puddles. Little Miss “Cool as a Cucumber” would probably be fine!
      • Lotta unscooped you know what currently at the dog parks; not conducive to picnicking.
      • Uh, JJ and I might, by accident, consume all the provisions instead of sharing with Mom.
  • Best idea so far – contact Miss Mary Ann, Auntie Liz, or Madrina and beg for assistance with adoring eyes and my famous Jetty Boy whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa.
    • Issues:
      • Mom charges her cell phone a little too far back on the counter to reach.
      • I can only dictate emails.
      • Miss Mary Ann might or might not walk with us this evening.

By selecting Best Idea so far, we have more hope of implementing (vocabulary builder) any or all of the other ideas previously listed.  Hey, how to I print, email, or text these posts to Miss Mary Ann, Auntie Liz or Madrina… where’s that Siri person who is so smart??

Another great let’s see what we decide day.

Mother’s Day – I’m Thinking Ahead Pt. 1

Hey It’s Jet Here.

I, Scooby Doo Academy trained, Jet the Gentleman, Boy of the House, etc… have thought long and hard… well if you count since early this morning as long and hard, about what to do for my human Mom on Sunday.  Here’s my thought process so far:

  • Idea: Give her a card from me, JJ, Fluffy and Puffy.
    • Issues:
      • We can’t hold a writing implement, need help to make a paw print, and cannot type on a keyboard.
      • No transportation to purchase one.
  • Idea: Let Mom sleep late on Sunday morning.
    • Issues:
      • I’ve got collie in me and we feel the need to herd at the crack of dawn.
      • It’s taken me 2+ years to train Mom to get up with me.
      • Our bladders and bellies need attending to.
  • Idea: As Mom’s Kitchen K9s, we can prepare a meal for her.
    • Issues:
      • We cannot help but QC (quality control) ourselves silly until the plate is empty.
      • Not allowed to use/touch anything hot.
      • No opposable thumbs.
      • Cannot retrieve our Tasty Tuesday Recipes (thanks to Kol and Sugar) from Mom’s Software.
  • Idea: Give her a spa day.
    • Issues:
      • I’m not sure I can get wet with my boo-boos.
      • JJ has … you know… girl issues right now.
      • Oh wait… Mom’s supposed to give US  a Spa Day.

Obviously, I need to call a 4-legged walkers only meeting in the house today to discuss more options…

Another great brainstorming day.
