Sunshine Thursday – Mango Style

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Boy are we LATE!  Yup, my blogosphere little sister, Poppy, from Fluffy Popcorn bestowed the Sunshine award on her Big Bro a few weeks ago  and what happened??? Life!  Since we’ve focused on mangoes this week, and the sun shines brightly on our mango tree as Mom and I prepare this post, we will catch up and gratefully accept the award and pass it on.  Oh, you know what’s the funniest?  Poppy and I bestowed the same award to each other on the same day!  Goes to show you even virtual siblings have that “sibling intuition!”

Poppy and her Mommy write the most joyous blog, their sunny hue of the world becomes evident upon your first reading.  They creatively comment, post wonderful videos, construct great photos with and for their furiends and share their infectious positivism. (vocab builder)  Look what Poppy and her Mom made for us to celebrate our awards…

So here are the rules:

Answer the questions that come with it.  Since I’m a kind brother in my own home, too, I pass the question portion on to JJ.  If you want to see my answers from last time, go here.

Pass it along to 10 people and let them know they have received it..

Here are the questions and JJ’s answers:

  • Favorite number: 14, the day Mom, Rachel, Jet, and Pluffy adopted me.
  • Favorite Non-alcoholic drink:  Water – Mom thinks I need etiquette (vocab builder) lessons because I slurp and drip!.
  • Facebook or Twitter: Mom can’t keep up with my energy level now; she can’t imagine adding either of these activities to my already busy schedule..
  • My Passion: Fetching, chewing, and counter surfing (only as a means to see what Mom’s up to and to let her know I’m ready and willing to participate!).
  • Favorite pattern: The pattern my kibbles takes as I scarf it down in milliseconds..
  • Favorite Day of the Week:  Any day I spend more time with humans!.
  • Favorite Flower:  hmmmm…. Mom might need to help me with this… Jetty enjoys sniffing flowers more than I do… I will say pink hibiscus and hot pink bougainvillea because they match my accessory color!

We’re going to pass on the award to newer pals we’ve been commenting with…

  • Urban Hounds – Miss Kate and the hounds visit wonderful places and… Miss Kate likes foodie stuff like Mom!
  • Dogs n Pawz – for their sunny disposition and good sportsmanship during the NBA finals.
  • Long Life Cats and Dogs – Miss Susan burst on the scene recently and already thinks in posts like the rest of us.  She shares great stories, information and musings from South Africa.
  • Paws to Talk – Follow the lives of Bella and Didi, standard poodles who are smart and witty.
  • My Life with Flyball Dogs – We love following the adventures of Koira and Pallo.  Their human writes great comments on their behalf!
  • Raising Daisy – Little Miss Havachon writes really enteraining posts.
  • It’s a Weinerful Life – These human Moms know how to provide adventures for their doxies and chihuaha, Sally Ann, Luna and Charlie.
  • Joke Puppy – We usually stop by on Saturdays for a visit.  Joke puppy always leaves us with a smile on our faces.
  • My GBGV Life – You MUST check out Emma’s Tasty Tuesday posts, she’s a riot, reminiscent of Julia Child!
  • House Full of Dogs – Angel, a 3 year old Pomeranian, and Chaos, a 3 year old Chihuaha, share their adventures.

Another great sunny day!

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…
  2. Raising Daisy – she’s a cutie that one!
  3. My GBGV Life  – Emma, the Debucher Baguette a Grand Basset Griffon Vendeén (say that 3 times fast!), is quite the lady!
  4. Dakota’s Den – The beautiful Dakota shares her daily life, including her feline brother, Cody!
  5. The (Mis)Adventures of Sage – Beautiful and fun loving, who could resist?
  6. Urban Hounds – Adorable K9s and NYC, slam dunk!
  7. My Life with Flyball Dogs –  We love their active lives, particularly dock diving and sand digging… a guy can dream…
  8. The Adventures of Higgins – we love his saying bombdiggity!
  9. Peaceful Dog –  Follow foster failures Fozzie and Lamar and fosters Miss Kirsten helps.
  10. Have Dog Blog Will Travel – the adventures of Celia Sue.
  11. Five Sibes  – While we were digging for their site, we read about Chloe, who tore her ACLs on both legs this past weekend.  They’re asking for all your good prayers thoughts and wishes.
  12. The Puppiness Project – Honey, the golden, is as sweet as her name… and her Mom is super insightful.
  13. GreyhoundGardens – With a tag line itsa greyt day, of course we like them!
  14. My Tail Hurts from Wagging Too Much  – never can wag too much!
  15. Kenzo Hovawart and Viva  – although we just met, we thought it was too cool to learn about a breed new to us… we thought they looked kind of like us in their pictures!!!

Another good goes round and round day.

Wowee Wow Wow

Hey It’s Jet Here.

What a week we’ve had.  It started a little rocky with Monday’s Mischievous remote control, however, by midweek, Ish’s eggs were in the fridge, we found that cool swimming elephant picture and received The Sunshine Award from Savannah and the Liebster Award from my adopted, Little Sister, Poppy.  We absolutely LOVE sharing and passing the awards forward.

Mom’s week went well, too.  After six, yes SIX visits to the Division of Motor Vehicles, she finally received her new driver’s license yesterday.  (the issues were all paper and eyesight related, not driving test related, in case you were worried!)  She caught up on this stuff called bank reconciliations which made her face turn purplish on Monday.  She had three unexpected good things happen in Kitchen Counselor world. And… despite last night’s Heat/Celtic game results (congratulations Celtics, well played), so far, our Heaters are up 2-1 in the series.

JJ, Mom, and I had a few good things happen together.  We made three constitutional walks, two at night and one in the morning before or in between bands of horrendous downpours.  You know how um… uh… ok PETRIFIED I am about storms, so, we consider any time we can get out during this type of weather pattern a victory.

During our Tuesday evening constitutional, we noticed a beige, waterlogged little cutie running across a yard into the street.  Mom cajoled (vocabulary builder) it (him after further investigation) to join us.  Mom checked his tag and learned his name was Gizmo.  He looked like a pug wrapped in apricot poodle fur!  The tag only had a phone number and we left our phone home. He kind of looked like this except he had much curlier, poodle fur and he was missing an eye.

Mom rang the first bell and a nice lady (mortified of K9s) agreed to dial the number and then pass the phone to Mom.  We left a vm.  Mom, JJ, Gizmo and I rang 2 more bells until we learned from Miss Kitty at the 3rd house she thought Gizmo belonged diagonally across the street.  We trekked over there and rang the bell.  A lady answered and confirmed Gizmo was hers.  She had looked and looked and needed a shower before looking more.

Mom told us how proud she was that we helped return a K9 to his loving family, creating a happy ending.

Another great week!

Thanks to Life With DogsConfessions of the Plume and Two Little Cavaliers for hosting the Saturday Blog Hop.
