Blog on Fire?

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Thank goodness we had spa day this morning @ 7:00 a.m. Why you ask? Well aside from the obvious, we had a surprise today. Texas, A Cat in NY bestowed the Blog on Fire Award to us and since our fur is still wet we will stay safe! What Mom? I’m confused? How so? Oh, blog on fire does not mean our blog is burning? Phew… and … Oops! Well, that’s great news. Oh and the phrase can imply that the nominated blogs are catching fire or hot, hot, hot, or here in the tropics they say… muy caliente!

Texas, a cat with beginnings in France lives in NY, where he shares his worldly observations. We met him through our friend, Savvy, from Savannah’s Paw Tracks, who Texas also gave the awardl

The Rules: Share 8 unusual things about yourself.

1. I have a VERY particular ritual for doing my solid waste business – I pace and pace and pace and pace until Mom is BEGGING in her mind for me to make up my mind already!
2. Mom gave me two man caves to feel safe in.
3. I love the smell of shampoo.
4. I cannot resist the George Forman drip tray… I try, really I do.
5. Oh, back to the solid waste issue, I prefer to pace right under the front windows of my neighbor’s homes. Mom is completely mortified.
6. I love canal swimming; smelling like a swamp dog does not bother me in the least.
7. I eat lots of fruits and veggies.
8. I used to be the hyper K9 when Koko was alive, now JJ is! In fact… uh… not sure I want to even put this in writing… I may, might, sort of, kind of be relinquishing some of my alpha position to Little Miss Barkarooni!

Mom’s behind schedule today, more on that tomorrow, so, we will share the award with 8 blogs in no particular order without our usual descriptions. (Oh my, she couldn’t help herself.)

1. A Tonk’s Tail – Farraday, Ryker, Allie and their Mom catch fire with their lightening twitter speed and lightening wit!
2. Kenzo the Hovawart – Kenzo and his human are catching fire by educating us about hovawarts, which are not so familiar to most of us.
3. Rumpy the Dog – They are catching fire by earning a Pettie nomination!
4. Bongo – Bongo catches fire for his diligence in protecting his trails.
5. Fabulous Flo –  She catches fire because well, she’s fabulous and she just celebrated her 1 year blogiversary!
6. Two French Bulldogs  Benny and Lily catch fire for always supporting us with comments and writing fun, memorable posts with great pics.
7. Fluffy Popcorn – Poppy, our virtual little sister catches fire with her cuteness of course, and her Mom’s skill and talents with video, posts, pics. We are WAY behind, Poppy, please forgive us.
8. Paws to Talk –  They catch fire by giving fast, thoughtful, advice, one bark at a time.

Another great Blogs on Fire, day!

Sunshine Thursday – Mango Style

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Boy are we LATE!  Yup, my blogosphere little sister, Poppy, from Fluffy Popcorn bestowed the Sunshine award on her Big Bro a few weeks ago  and what happened??? Life!  Since we’ve focused on mangoes this week, and the sun shines brightly on our mango tree as Mom and I prepare this post, we will catch up and gratefully accept the award and pass it on.  Oh, you know what’s the funniest?  Poppy and I bestowed the same award to each other on the same day!  Goes to show you even virtual siblings have that “sibling intuition!”

Poppy and her Mommy write the most joyous blog, their sunny hue of the world becomes evident upon your first reading.  They creatively comment, post wonderful videos, construct great photos with and for their furiends and share their infectious positivism. (vocab builder)  Look what Poppy and her Mom made for us to celebrate our awards…

So here are the rules:

Answer the questions that come with it.  Since I’m a kind brother in my own home, too, I pass the question portion on to JJ.  If you want to see my answers from last time, go here.

Pass it along to 10 people and let them know they have received it..

Here are the questions and JJ’s answers:

  • Favorite number: 14, the day Mom, Rachel, Jet, and Pluffy adopted me.
  • Favorite Non-alcoholic drink:  Water – Mom thinks I need etiquette (vocab builder) lessons because I slurp and drip!.
  • Facebook or Twitter: Mom can’t keep up with my energy level now; she can’t imagine adding either of these activities to my already busy schedule..
  • My Passion: Fetching, chewing, and counter surfing (only as a means to see what Mom’s up to and to let her know I’m ready and willing to participate!).
  • Favorite pattern: The pattern my kibbles takes as I scarf it down in milliseconds..
  • Favorite Day of the Week:  Any day I spend more time with humans!.
  • Favorite Flower:  hmmmm…. Mom might need to help me with this… Jetty enjoys sniffing flowers more than I do… I will say pink hibiscus and hot pink bougainvillea because they match my accessory color!

We’re going to pass on the award to newer pals we’ve been commenting with…

  • Urban Hounds – Miss Kate and the hounds visit wonderful places and… Miss Kate likes foodie stuff like Mom!
  • Dogs n Pawz – for their sunny disposition and good sportsmanship during the NBA finals.
  • Long Life Cats and Dogs – Miss Susan burst on the scene recently and already thinks in posts like the rest of us.  She shares great stories, information and musings from South Africa.
  • Paws to Talk – Follow the lives of Bella and Didi, standard poodles who are smart and witty.
  • My Life with Flyball Dogs – We love following the adventures of Koira and Pallo.  Their human writes great comments on their behalf!
  • Raising Daisy – Little Miss Havachon writes really enteraining posts.
  • It’s a Weinerful Life – These human Moms know how to provide adventures for their doxies and chihuaha, Sally Ann, Luna and Charlie.
