Little Miss Pouncerator

Hey It’s Jet Here.

pizap-com13579540599831_ipad-searchGuess what?  We’re very excited at Casa Jet this week because a mystery of the fun kind is brewing.  Follow along if you’re curious beginning with my BFF, Savannah’s post today.

Mom had another full weekend.  She actually asked for Saturday off… no post, no commenting, just resting and some work that needed attending.  I gave her time off for good behavior.  Of course we had spa day!

um basketballSunday, she visited Nana and Poppi, from early morning until late afternoon (4 hours of driving).  She told us she needed to lie down for thirty minutes before feeding us a slightly early dinner, taking us on a slightly early constitutional, grabbing a quick shower and then off to her first UMiami Basketball game of the season. (Thanks to Grandpa who shared his tickets!)

Halfway into our snuggle time, the bell rang and rang and rang, which means Ruby wants to visit!  Little Miss Door Greeter pouncing dalmationjumped off the bed with so much energy, enthusiasm, verve (VBP) and voice.   The only hitch?  She used Mom as her springboard!  Mom uttered a huge “OUCH” as Little Miss Rocket Launcher planted four paws and 60 lbs. of forward motion on various tender spots of her body.  Mom didn’t answer the door, so JJ returned within a minute or two and excitedly leapt into bed landing on Mom in almost the exact same places, causing another loud “OUCH” from poor Mom.

Later when Ruby and Mom walked us, Ruby told us that she thought an old woman had shouted “GET OUT” and ran home to her dad worried that something was wrong.  Mom explained what had happened and they discussed how Little Miss Pouncerator didn’t mean to hurt Mom.  As you can imagine, we do not have photos from this event… however, I’m calling unintended mischief on JJ!  (again!)

Another great golden launch day.

Before and After…

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Oh gosh, I thought this day would NEVER arrive.  Check it out… I woke up and I still looked like this…

We had breakfast, went for a walk and then we saw the towels come out of the closet.  Mom said, “Come here, Jetty, guess what?  This is coming OFF!” and she unsnapped nine times and poof after 4 weeks I was a free boy!

We followed Mom into her room, then bathroom and laid on the floor for pre-spa comb outs.

Afterwards, I fell for the Zuke’s treat encouragement and trotted into the shower.  JJ needed some convincing.

Mom shampooed JJ and I and told each of us how pretty/handsome we looked and smelled.  Oh she’s a charmer that Mom!  (Jetty, I meant every word, I love how you two smell when freshly Buddy Washed!)

Mom gave each of us a quick towel dry in the shower and then sprung us.  JJ did her side stroke doggy paddle action on the tile while I, Jet the Sophisticated, hopped on Mom’s soft bed and rolled on her comforter!

Mom prefers when we drip dry in the office, on the tile while she works on the computer.  So, here we are.

Another great, I’m cone free, day!

Mother’s Day – I’m Thinking Ahead Pt. 1

Hey It’s Jet Here.

I, Scooby Doo Academy trained, Jet the Gentleman, Boy of the House, etc… have thought long and hard… well if you count since early this morning as long and hard, about what to do for my human Mom on Sunday.  Here’s my thought process so far:

  • Idea: Give her a card from me, JJ, Fluffy and Puffy.
    • Issues:
      • We can’t hold a writing implement, need help to make a paw print, and cannot type on a keyboard.
      • No transportation to purchase one.
  • Idea: Let Mom sleep late on Sunday morning.
    • Issues:
      • I’ve got collie in me and we feel the need to herd at the crack of dawn.
      • It’s taken me 2+ years to train Mom to get up with me.
      • Our bladders and bellies need attending to.
  • Idea: As Mom’s Kitchen K9s, we can prepare a meal for her.
    • Issues:
      • We cannot help but QC (quality control) ourselves silly until the plate is empty.
      • Not allowed to use/touch anything hot.
      • No opposable thumbs.
      • Cannot retrieve our Tasty Tuesday Recipes (thanks to Kol and Sugar) from Mom’s Software.
  • Idea: Give her a spa day.
    • Issues:
      • I’m not sure I can get wet with my boo-boos.
      • JJ has … you know… girl issues right now.
      • Oh wait… Mom’s supposed to give US  a Spa Day.

Obviously, I need to call a 4-legged walkers only meeting in the house today to discuss more options…

Another great brainstorming day.

The Shaving Brush Tree

Hey It’s Jet Here.

This past week, one of my new blogging buddies, Bongo, wrote a post about an Indian Paint Brush Tree. Ok, we just tried to find the comment about the Indian Paint Brush Tree on Bongo’s blog and now we can’t.  Maybe it was our friend Rumpy??? Well anyway… we mentioned in our response that we have Shaving Brush Trees here in South Florida; one is hot pink and one is white.  Mom thought the tree died the first time she saw the leaves on the ground and the branches bare.  Now that she’s seen twenty life cycles of the tree, she knows that soon after the leaves fall, the shaving brushes appear!

Today, we passed the pink one in the neighborhood on the way back from walking around this thing called a golf course with Miss Marcia.  You know how JJ and I love to ride in the car with the windows down, especially at 7:15 a.m.!  Mom pulled over and hoped for the best because she dropped her phone at the end of our walk and this button thingie wasn’t working correctly.

Mom took one shaving brush home since today was Spa Day.  Rachel and our BFF, Ruby, helped me “shave” like the manly man I am…

And help JJ “shave” her legs!

Another great shaving day.

Mom and JJ Finish Mom’s Book

Remember a few weeks ago when Mom began reading her Hannukah present from Auntie Liz?

Well, yesterday, after Mom took me to the Farmers Market, gave JJ and I spa day, and had some visits with friends, Mom took a few moments to finish her book.  JJ finished Mom’s book too!  Both gave excellent reviews!

Little Miss Reader…

Another great literary day.

More De”tails”…

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

Mom told my Auntie Liz more about the GRSF reunion last night.  I heard Auntie Liz laugh when Mom shared about the agility course.  You see, the park had agility toys for us.  Mom thought I would just love to walk up this climbing thing and run down the other side.  Since I only wore my collar, she held it firmly to keep my attention and sweetly spoke encouraging words with her “You can do it, Jetty” attitude.  Ok, I figured I would climb the first section to give Mom some pawsitive reinforcement.  As expected, she praised my success and encouraged me to continue.  Judiciously (vocabulary expansion), I walked up sections 2-4 until I reached the apex.  Mom congratulated me big time.  She and I were on top of the world… until I layed down and began to do the backwards slide.  Mom tried to slow me down with no luck; I slid right back down onto the dirt.

JJ happened to pass by so Mom figured she would attempt the climb with her.  Little Miss Show Off barely needed Mom’s guidance, she trotted to the apex and posed for pictures.  JJ must have had gymnastic training before joining us because she jumped right off hitting the ground trotting like “no big deal!”  hmpf… She didn’t make dirt angels!  Jetty, each being finds activities right for them; I was so proud of you for trying while the park bustled with K9s and people.

Miss Sharon from the Rescue sold beautiful Golden Greeting cards to Mom.  The proceeds help GRSF with their vet bills.  Ask her to write you a letter so you can see the cards.

Lots of humans wanted to meet Boozer and his family.  His dad puts really cool pictures and stories of Boo on the GRSF facebook page.  I heard lots of clicks from Boozer’s dad’s camera; can’t wait to see the results online.

Oh, two of the Christmas puppies attended the reunion.  I watched one of the puppies play with some pals in the dirt.  He ended up looking like a Dalmatian instead of a golden!  Bet he took a long bath Saturday night.  JJ and I deferred Spa Day until yesterday because of the late return home and subsequent nap.  Mom wanted me to let you know that it took double the shampoo on my back and belly from my artistic dirt expressions.

Another great day.

I’m Not Allowed to Look

Hey, It’s Jet Here.

Well, I’m sort of here.  Mom said I can’t see today’s post.  She said she will handle the information.

Jet, take the day off –

  • it’s Sunday,
  • you’re clean from yesterday’s spa day,
  • you stole 4 of Rachel’s vanilla cupcakes, (Mooommm… she left the container open)

Hey, It’s Jet’s Mom Here.

I didn’t have the heart to tell Jet the following yet.  First, please read this post.

Last night, Jet stood by the gate section of the fence, waiting for a sound, any sound to acknowledge that Patches would hear his goodnight bark.  I hope the new neighbors have a dog(s).

Another great day… so far.
