B4TC – Food Banks for Pets

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Texas-buildingBefore we begin, we piqued (VBP) your mystery of the fun kind yesterday with Clue #1 on my BFF, Savannah’s post yesterday.  Today, may we direct your attention to Clue #2 by visiting my buddy, Texas!

Mom disappeared from early morning until late night with a brief return mid afternoon yesterday.  Remember I mentioned she secured another part-time job?  Well, turns out, she’s now part of the Chef/Instructor team of common threads logoCommon Threads in Miami.   From the Common Threads website: “We teach low-income children to cook wholesome and affordable meals because we believe that through our hands-on cooking classes we can help prevent childhood obesity and reverse the trend of generations of non-cookers, while celebrating our cultural differences and the things people all over the world have in common.”  Founded by Chef Art Smith, yes, Oprah’s first personal Chef, Little Miss Kitchen K9 and I are proud Mom will help other human’s eat healthy.

pongo warehouseWe know from reading, so many of our blogpals help out.  You may or may not have heard about Pet Food Banks or Pet Food Pantries.  During these stressful economic times, when so many families have lost their homes, unexpectedly downsized, or suffered long term job loss, food banks have made an ever increasing impact.  Pet Food Banks and Pet Food Pantries help keep beloved furfamily members in the home instead of surrendered to overcrowded shelters or worse.  We found a great site which differentiates (VBP) between food banks, food pantries, soup kitchens and other similar terms.

To find national Pet Food Banks or Pet Food Pantries in your area, SEARCH either of those terms.

We think  Sugar and Kol will understand our lack of recipe today and still permit us to join the Tasty Tuesday Hop, today is our forty-first participating post!

Another great, thank goodness for food banks/food pantries day.



It’s Like a Regular Zoo Around Here

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

Since I had so much to share about the GRSF Reunion the last few days, you don’t know that I solved the BOOM, BOOM, BOOM mysteryJet, who solved the mystery? Ok, Freddy’s Dad filled in the missing pieces when you asked him Sunday at the Farmers Market.  Then… Then you told me after work and I marked it down for my Scooby Doo Academy Coursework.  Good Boy, Jetty, now you can go on with the story.

As I was saying, Mr. Richard told Mom the house behind Vance and Vilda’s house have this thing called a transformer which blew up.  The power company people said that either possums or rats (ewwwww) got into the transformer and… details not fit for reading.

Dixie’s Mom reported seeing several rats on the power lines across the street from her house on Sunday.  (ewwwww)  She screamed. Completely  understandable.  I, Jet, the Bird Dog (or part bird dog from my retriever heritage) spotted three fat birds on the wire parallel to our side yard this morning.  I monitored their conversation carefully before going inside for a nap.

JJ, our creative girl, has recently expanded her animal mimicry skills.  She imitates a gazelle, deer, ibex, antelope (take your pick from that type of creature) when Mom walks down the hall on her way to take us outside.  Her graceful full body leaps really show off previous ballet classes.  Excuse the situation, however, JJ takes a perfect kangaroo posture when doing her solid business.  She can trot like a Budweiser Clydesdale, too.  When we wrestle, Mom says we look like young bucks seeing who will lead the herd.  Finally, when she grips her chewies and shakes her head with reckless abandon, you know she’s watched Jaws a few too many times.

Considering this is dry season, imagine what the rainy season will bring: snakes, frogs, iguanas etc…  Who needs Metrozoo?

Another great creature filled day.
