The Dating Game – Bachelor #1

Hey It’s Jet Here.

When Mom was young, she watched The Dating Game with her babysitters.  The premise:

A bachelor or bachelorette sat sequestered (vocab builder) behind a wall with three bachelorettes or bachelors sitting behind another wall.  The bachelor/bachelorette asked questions and the Host facilitated the answers.  At the end, the bachelor/bachelorette selected one of the contestants and they went on a swanky date, paid for by the show.  Many of the questions involved double entendres, jokes, funny voices and such.

Ever since JJ had her surgery last month, she’s become quite the cougar!  So, Mom and I decided to create our own dating game and see who you would select.  Today we start with Bachelor #1 – Austin W.

Austin W. – Man of Mystery

  • JJ has not met him, Mom has.
  • Slightly younger, probably 5 to JJ’s 6 ish.
  • Lives the life of a comfortable suburban K9.
  • Loves to catch Frisbees.
  • Loves playing in the backyard.
  • Does not enjoy social engagements with fellow K9s, loves attention from humans.
  • Only K9, shares family with outdoor feline.  Previously shared house with two other female K9s.
  •  Wears a Georgetown collar.
  • Likes treats, not that fond of his kibble.
  • Likes belly rubs.

Stay tuned for Bachelor #2, Simba.

Another great, match made in heaven, day.

P.S.  Speaking of Bachelors, when JJ visited Dr. Shaffer’s this week, Judy asked Mom if she had any good ideas for Champ.  Champ, an American bulldog mix, has camped out at the Paradise Animal Center B & B for over 5 months.  We don’t know the whole sad story yet, however, he’s one step from going to Animal Services and you know what that could mean.  Here’s his picture, let us know if you have any ideas… we will see if our area has a bulldog rescue.

Monday Mischief – JJ’s Vet Visit

Hey It’s Jet Here.

On Saturday, JJ had to visit Dr. Shaffer again to check on her scar and her ear (infection, then wax wad).  Of course, I fell for the “Jetty, do you want a piggie ear?” so Mom could get JJ out of the house without my noticing.

Mom told me the following when they returned home…

Not JJ, but Mom says close enough, except JJ’s ears have way more hair!

Jetty, you won’t believe what happened.  Dr. Shaffer said that while JJ’s ear does not present any inflammation, she still has that wad of wax down there and there are hairs in it which could lead to an infection.  The two syringe thingies of helping stuff has done this softening of the wax, however, it’s still lodged in there. Dr. Shaffer and his vet techs took JJ into the back and put her up on the table.  Dr. Shaffer brought towels out and used this gynormous syringe filled with a solution to try to flush out the wax wad.  Your sister demonstrated courage and bravery during each repeated flush. 

When they dried her off and brought her back into the exam room, Dr. Shaffer said he got about half out and I would have to flush everyday for a week, beginning a week from Saturday.  I will have the usual medicine bottle, no big syringe thingie. 

On our way out, Judy mentioned JJ was up for her semi-annual complimentary exam.  Knowing that JJ had enough with the back room, they kindly came out to check her stool.  I figured they could call me with the results.  Judy and I started chatting and before you know it, the vet tech came out and said JJ had hookworms.  REALLY?  EWWWWWWWWW, I’ve never dealt with that in all my years of pet ownership.  Did I mention EWWWWWWWW Jetty?  They gave her some medicine in her mouth and I have to do the second dose.  And… when I take JJ back in two weeks, guess whose “scoop the poop” bag/specimen I have to bring… YUK!!!!!!  

So, Jetty, I say that both the wax wad and the hookworms are definitely the mischief makers this week.  Did I mention EWWWWWWWW????

Uh Mom?  Yes, Jetty?  Take a breath, calm down, Nurse Jetty is on duty, everything will get better.  Thanks Jetty, you’re the best.

Another great, but medically yucky, day.

Dixie’s Very Own Flying Circus

Hey It’s Jet Here.

We passed by Miss Mary Ann’s house this morning as always and saw this.

Mom, how come the circus is visiting Dixie’s house?  Why didn’t she invite us to the festivities? JJ and I would enjoy circus acts: flying trapeze, clowns, tricks and balancing acts.

Jetty, my boy, Dixie’s house possesses flying acts alright; however, they travel under the name, THE HUNGRY TERMITES.  Termites try to EAT human houses, by eating the wood. Dixie and Miss Mary Ann would never exclude you from festivities.  When you see circus tents in the neighborhood, the humans and pets do a disappearing act, in order to make the termites disappear forever. 

Oh, that’s a good one, Mom, disappear forever!  Thanks, now I understand; that’s one circus I do not want an invitation to.

Another great, avoid those type of circus tents, day.
