Follow Up Friday – Question Mark Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our 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 recently turned her wonderful idea into a new blog hop!  We loved co-hosting last week, thanks  for the invitation.

Before we begin, we wanted to let you know that we decided to donate to help the animals challenged by Superstorm Sandy through Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.  We chose Best Friends, because in Mom’s experience, they walk the talk.  She’s followed them for about 15 years now and even took my human sister there to volunteer about 7 years ago.  We will also participate in some way with Heart Like a Dog’s “Dogs of Blogville” calendar contest, which will send help to a blogpal in need.

Saturday Pet Bloggers Hop – Blogiversary – Where did the Time Go?

Boy oh boy, how kind, generous and supportive you were, acknowledging our first year of blogging.  Some of you even thought Mom made the cake!  (not so… just a photo from Google Images!!)  We cannot express our appreciation of your open arms/paws.

Black & White Sunday – A Daylight Savings Time Riddle?

A resounding (VBP – vocab builder project) cheer for all of our blogpals who answered correctly!  I’m improving… I went from 4:10 to 4:38 to 4:43 to 6:00 (long election night walk and tv night!) to 5:12 to 5:20!  Our favorite comment suggested I had a black rug on top of me from the back of my head to my tail.  We responded that I would NEVER wear a toupee, I sprout naturally gorgeous black fluff!

 Mischief Monday – Guess Who Came to Dinner?

Simba of course!  Most of you feel he arrived in time for Mom’s yummy cooking.  While true, (and Mom says thanks by the way), we believe he knows we will welcome him when he escapes, keep him safe, (give him some tidbits), and play with him until his family arrives.  Several of you wanted to join us for dinner as well… Mom says… ANYTIME!

Tasty Tuesday – Who likes Fennel?

Surprisingly, Mom’s faithful Kitchen K9s do!  Oh yes, we got your attention on this one.  Lots of comments expressed curiosity and surprise about fennel in general and K9s eating it specifically!  Our pack mate Neve and Miss Beverly wrote in to share how much Neve enjoys thinly sliced fennel, while Miss Beverly prefers her fennel roasted!

Oh, Miss Wendy thought we were wearing coats, actually we had our Halloween costumes on because … it was HALLOWEEN!

Wordless Wednesday – Who needed a break from the election?

EVERYONE!!!  So glad you enjoyed the comic relief of Dudley’s video as much as we did; thanks to Mollie for sending in a comment describing how to post videos for Mom… Also, Little Miss Professional Paw Shaker has stayed grounded so far after winning her seat on the Happy, Happy commission!

Thankful Thursday – Who needs to Apologize?

MOM!  Yup, Mom went ROGUE, adlibbing a title I DID NOT APPROVE and scared a bunch of my blogpals to bits! Sorry, Mea Culpa etc… I will keep a shorter leash on her transcribing activities.  All are healthy at Casa Jet.

Glad we thought to share nicknames for seven inhabitants of Casa Jetty as part of our “Seven Things About Me” Award Procedure.  Now you have the inside scoop!  Gratitude again to our four pals who bestowed the award on us.

Another great question mark week.

Our Ninth Black & White Sunday: A Daylight Savings Time Riddle

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Riddle:

Who’s black and white, smart and gentlemanly yet cannot decipher (VBP –vocal builder project) “turn back the clock?”   (This is what Mom hoped for…no luck.)

Another great 4:10 a.m. (with the time change) start to the day!  (wagging, nudging, and licking Mom awake!)

Thanks to My Life in Blog Years ​and Dachshund Nola for hosting the Black and White Sunday blog hop.

Riddle Me This…

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

JJ, Mom and I just returned from our predawn walk in the fresh, crisp, day 1 of cold front air.  Remember how much I love the scent of pine?  If not, no worries, read this.  To my utter delight and surprise, five houses along our path this morning graced their lawns with Christmas trees ready for Monday’s garbage pickup. Ahhh… to smell the limbs… to empty my tank… good stuff for a Saturday morning!

On the subject of walking routes, Riddle Me This:  What is the difference between walking clockwise on our morning route in the predawn darkness versus the post sunset darkness?

Here’s the back-story to help you.  Almost every weekday morning we journey in a clockwise rectangular route passing: my friend, Dixie’s house, my non-friend, Abby the border collie’s house (I’ve tried, really.) Pebbles, the boxer with the deep bark’s house, Freddie’s house, Lola the chocolate lab’s house, Pepper the medium sized poodle’s house, Vance & Vilda the Westies’ house, Simba’s house, Neve’s house, Sammy’s house and finally back home.  We pass other houses, too, however, it’s easier for me to remember the houses with other K9s in them.

At night, depending on who we walk with, if anyone, the weather, the time, and/or my personal curiosity, we head out one of three ways.  If we choose to copy our morning path, we usually stop and either pick Dixie and Mary Ann up or at least say hello.  For some reason, after that I will NOT continue in a clockwise fashion.  Mom tries:

  • “Jet” therapy techniques,
  • her “I’m serious” voice,
  • encouragement from Mary Ann,
  • “snap out of it” techniques from Caesar and
  • anything else she can think of at the moment.

A clue:  If we can somehow travel by two or three houses, I eventually get back into normal rhythm.

Another great and enigmatic day.
