Mom’s On Assignment

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

Mom asked me to dictate early (Saturday afternoon) because she … I can hardly bear to write this … is LEAVING us for 24 hours.  Ok, my human sister, Rachel, will keep us company in addition to our Madrina (Godmother in Spanish).  Yes, Mom left a detailed, one page sheet of directions for Madrina, but… still…

Remember last week when she went to that Food Network stuff?  Well tonight, she and Auntie Liz will attend The Best Thing I Ever Ate.  Hey Mom, I like late night bites and sweets and so does JJ for that matter.  Jetty, I wish I could bring you; however, Auntie Liz’s building will not permit K9s of your handsome size.  I know you find it difficult to imagine, however, not all humans appreciate K9s near their food.

Then tomorrow, Mom, Miss Mary Ann and two more friends will attend the Grand Tasting.   Last year, they tasted, laughed and enjoyed a great day.  I know because I saw their photos.  They saw this human called Paula Deen pretend this other human called Robert Irvine was a horse and she rode him on the stage!  Mom?  Yes, Jetty?  I deserve Grand Tastings don’t I?  Of course you do my boy.  Again, they serve beverages with alcohol that would hurt your tummy and body.  The thick lines for food samples would test even your sweet patience.  The demonstration areas only have chairs; no comfy spots for you to wait and listen.  Plus, to tell you the truth Jetty, I really pay attention so I can obtain information for my Kitchen Counselor business.  Mom?  Yes, Jetty?  I’m one of your Kitchen K9s, right?  You certainly are.  Well, I could help you for Kitchen Counselor business.  What a sweet boy, you touch my heart, Jetty.

Let’s do this.  Let’s make a playdate with our new cyberpal, Flo and go to the beach where you and JJ can have special fun.  Sound like a plan?  Ok, Mom, Ok… sounds great… I’ll try practicing patience and wish you, Auntie Liz, Miss Mary Ann and everyone else a great time. 

Jet, this is Flo with her friend, Sammy... let's see if we can get a picture of you, Flo and JJ!

Another great and understanding day.

I Can Cross Train

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

Mom went to her first event of that Art Basel thing yesterday.  She and my Aunt Liz attended Scope and Art Asia.   Mom described the event as similiar to Food and Wine with the big white tents.  I politely listened to Mom share details about what she saw.  However, only one thing perked up my ears.

Mom said this print was the ONLY dog featured in the whole exhibit thing last night, what were those artists thinking???

The famous photographer, William Wegman donated this print, “Cross Training”, to raise money for up and coming photographers.  Mr. Wegman, I can cross train, I’ll let you take my picture.  Jet, Mr. Wegman only photographs weinmaraners, you’re too fluffy my boy!  I’ll photograph you anytime, your photos make me smile and laugh, just like you do in person!  Thanks, Mom.

Another great and photographic day.
