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 has successfully turned her wonderful idea into a robust blog hop!
Before I begin, may I write a BIG THANK YOU for checking on Mom and I to see how we’re feeling. I’m kerplopping less out on our walks; however, I’m still rather uncomfortable. Mom says I tolerate the first aid spray and the goopy medicine very well. The Cone of Courage remains on 24/7 to defray (VBP) my desire to bite/scratch the area. Mom seems to have improved about 20%; she continues to feel like her head is under water! She kept her promise and rested a good bit last week.
Saturday – Merry Newfmas and Happy Houndlidays
We enjoyed participating in The Pet Blogger Gift Exchange hosted by the fetching Honey and Miss Pamela. Many of you already knew our giftee, Newf and Hound, while several of you looked forward to meeting them. Guess what? Turns out my buddy, Snoopy, lives really close to Hazel, Ernie, Nooner and Foyle and wants to meet them! Super cool!
Sunday – Cone of Courage
We appreciated your feedback which ranged from acknowledging our efforts to “turn our frown, upside down” to making lemonade from lemons, etc… Mom asked me to share she’s glad you found the photo moving. So many of you have my back on this one, I feel the love!
Monday – Scientific Mischief
Yeah, you could relate to Little Miss Bird Dog and my urges to uh… stray from the strict scientific endeavor of participating in this year’s annual Bird Count. Glad you got a kick out of our Boa Leash maneuver! Of course you understood our efforts to keep that arrogant Winchester in line! My BFF, Savannah, requested a quill from that peacock, which, we will happily try to find when he next molts!
Tuesday – Tasty Tuesday Christmas Style
We wished our blogpal community celebrating Christmas the appropriate greetings and asked how to properly do so in a few cultures. We learned that in a few countries, it’s proper to say Happy Christmas, as Merry Christmas might imply (VBP) debauchery! We even learned how to send good wishes in Dutch from Suki, Hiro and Miss Dianda! Vrolijk Kerstfeest!
Wednesday – Now I’m a Leaping Lord
Wowee, wow wow! Can you believe Miss Ann bestowed such a Royal title on ‘ol Jetty boy? Thanks for the positive feedback on my new skills. I think that I may be ready to learn the game of kings… POLO! Several pals worried about my ego… I want to quash (VBP) the notion that I will change as a result of my recent Royal titles… I remain your humble Jetty. If I begin to show any difference, Mom PROMISES to keep me in line!
Thursday – The Little Thingies
So glad you feel the same way about gratitude for the “basics” (which are really a big deal, especially for those of us who had “before” times we do not want to think about.) We all agree to take time each day to remind ourselves of how fortunate we are. I’ll remind you, if you remind me!
As for my digression regarding the recent appointment of a new Secretary of State, our friends at the DogDaz Zoo wrote, “And you are so right about a Golden for Sec of State.” I really feel Bo’s Dad made a mistake – there, I said it again!
Another great Follow Up Friday holiday edition.
