Delayed Gracias! Part I

Hey It’s Jet Here.

As a result of Mom’s work schedule, our blog hopping schedules, and our computer issues, we have not said our proper Thank You (s) and followed protocol on our recent awards.

Before proceeding with proper etiquette (vocab builder), a quick note on awards, from our perspective.  When we began receiving awards and bestowing awards, we felt honored privileged and supported in the efforts we put forth.  We take awards as a way to stretch our awareness of other bloggers work in addition to feeling the commraderie and passing along the good.  How about you?  Do you feel that awards have gotten out of hand or do you feel they are a way of saying, “good job, we appreciate your efforts, pass on the kindness” like we do?

Ok, with that said… (off my Buddy Wash Soap Box. (Green Tea and Rosemary))

Thanks to our dear feline friend, Savvy, from Savannah’s Paw Tracks for bestowing the Very Inspired Blogger Award.  She calls me Big Guy (which I just LOVE) and shares her daily recovery since her family rescued her from the shelter where they thought she was unfriendly.  Boy if they could see her now!  She taught me paw pats and paw pumps, too!

Thanks to my blogging little sister, Poppy, from Fluffy Popcorn for sharing a 2nd Sunshine Award.  Guess what? Poppy sent us the award on the same day we sent it to her… BOL!  We will thank her more tomorrow.

We will forward The Very Inspiring Blogger Award today and The Sunshine Award tomorrow.  The Rules:

(1) Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them in your post.  Gracias, (we live in the tropics where humans speak a great deal of Spanish), to Savvy – tons of paw pats and paw pumps!

(2) Share 7 things about yourself…

  1. This week I reacted a little better during the storms, it was Little Miss Barkarooni who robo-barked.
  2. I’m super excited that mango season began in our back yard this week! I’m waiting for the first fruit to ripen.
  3. I can be a Momma’s boy sometimes.
  4. I can’t wait to go swimming. (Mom’s waiting for my skin boo boos to fully resolve.)
  5. I love my Scooby Doo Academy curriculum.
  6. Nothing beats a belly rub.
  7. I’m a great Heat fan, I’m always wearing their colors!

  8. Tales and Tails – Bunny and her sister, Morgan inspire us in two ways.  Bunny inspires us with her modeling talents.  Morgan is training to help humans stay safe.

Versatile Thursday

Hey It’s Jet Here.

You know the phrases humans say like, good karma, pay it forward, goodness will come back to you?  Well over the last few weeks, our blog feels like the bulls-eye for kindness.  We met Texas, A Cat in New York when our black pearl feline friend, Savannah, graciously gave us the Sunshine award, which Texas gave to her. Texas and I have dialogued a bit since then and he has a heart the size of which matches his name!  The friendly feline surprised us by bestowing the Versatile Blogger award on us last weekend!  Boy did we woo-woo/whoo hoo in delight!

Here are the rules:

  • 1. Thank the person who gave you this award
  • Since Savannah shared that you felines like paw pats… paw pats and a huge thank you for thinking of us!
  • 2. Include a link to their blog
  • Done!
  • 3. Select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site 
  • We tried to share the award with blogs newer to us… we’ve tried to expand to blogs other than wordpress… we had trouble posting comments on blogspot for a long time.  In no particular order:
  1. Puppy In Training – Mr. Colby shares lots of good info and pics…

  3. My GBGV Life  – Emma, the Debucher Baguette a Grand Basset Griffon Vendeén (say that 3 times fast!), is quite the lady!

  10. Have Dog Blog Will Travel – the adventures of Celia Sue.

  12. The Puppiness Project – Honey, the golden, is as sweet as her name… and her Mom is super insightful.

Another good goes round and round day.
