Grateful to Gravatar

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Later than late… hmpf.

I apologize for Mom’s late transcription, however, she edited a large document this morning from 5:15 to 9:00 a.m. (with a break for our morning feeding/constitutional/shower of course!)  This time slot usually belongs to ‘ol Jetty boy.  JJ went to see Dr. Schaffer at 9 for a 9:30 appointment and poof, the morning flew by.  Mom felt bad for leaving me home, so, she took me to see her friend, Miss Eileen.  She has a fish tank, which I looked and sniffed curiously a few times.

Anyway, I digress, back to the subject at hand.

When we were blogging neophytes (vocab building project VBP) last winter, first learning about blog hops, we thought the blogs which commented and had little square pictures in the corner knew magic!  Our comments posted with funny faces, shapes and patterns.  Where was my handsome, manly man self???

We noted that when we wrote to the fetching, Bunny, from Tales and Tails, info on this gravatar thingie popped up.  Mom tried to follow the directions, didn’t realize she even set up an account and had no clue about how to make pictures.  Months and months passed until we met our friend, Miss Linda from Savannah’s Paw Tracks.  She told Mom how to make my picture appear on our blog in the corner.  Mom (poor tech challenged soul) was so proud and excited thinking she had the Eureka! moment and all comments would now show me in the square thingie.  No such luck.

A few weeks ago, Mom came upon that Gravatar thingie again, found the help place and admitted her confusion.  Mr. Anthony Customer Support left a lovely response in “Computer directions for dummies” wording that even Mom could process!  After a few attempts, she got it!  So, hopefully, beginning today, you will see “Jet at our canal” in the little box by our comments.

Another great Gravatar day!

Fabulous Friday

Hey It’s Jet Here.

As if Thank You Thursday wasn’t wonderful enough (see special awarded blogs here), my adopted Little Sister, Fluffy Popcorn (Poppy to her friends,) bestowed the Liebster Award on my blog this week.  Mom and I admit we have always been curious as to what Liebster meant.  Poppy, ever the curious K9, and her super creative Mommy, dug around and found out:

“Like most people who have received the Liebster Blog Award, Mom Googled to find out what “Liebster” means. 😀 This was what she found. “Liebster” means “beloved”, “dearest”, or “favorite” in German. The origin of the Liebster Blog award is somewhat unclear but there’s a general consensus that the award originated in Germany. The award recognizes bloggers with fewer than 200 followers.”

When you’re a bit newer to the blogging world, receiving this award carries such deep feelings of appreciation, acknowledgement and welcome.  The rules of the Liebster Blog Award only allows us to select 5 bloggers to pass this award on to.  With that in mind, we wish to share and pay-it-forward to:

  • Savannah’s Paw Tracks  – A new friend who has taken the blogosphere by storm.
  • 2 Brown Dawgs Blog  – We cannot tell how many followers they have, however, they saved my sister, JJ’s life!
  • For the Love of My Dogs  – Miss Deanna saves K9s from the same place Golden Rescue South Florida sprung me from with 4 days to spare.  We admire her big heart and how she walks the talk to help K9s.  We hope we can meet her and the crew for a pack walk someday soon!!!
  • Kol’s Notes –  Mom cannot tell how many subscribers Kol has; poor Mom, she tries so hard to be tech savvy!  We love Kol’s writing style and find ourselves giggling every time we visit. Plus, Mom LOVES to read anything having to do with food, cooking, etc… (she is The Kitchen Counselor after all!)
  • The World According to Lexi  – Mom cannot tell how many subscribers they have.  We love Nitro’s story, his weekly park pictures, the farm pictures and what a special life Miss Christina provides for her 4 legged family members.

Hey:

Another great, thanks so much, day.
