Vocabulary Building Project Blog Hop! Mystery Solved.

Hey It’s Jet, Savannah and Texas Here.

By now, you probably figured out that Texas, Savannah and I have put our collective fur together, (ok, our Moms helped, too), to make the Vocabulary Building Project an official Blog Hop!

We enjoyed giving you hints all week: click here for here for Texas’ post, here for Savannah’s post, and here for my post in case you missed them..

How did we begin? Texas and Savannah turn to Jet…you better tell this part, Jet…

Oh, Ok…Jet Here… let me tell you how Mom and I started this a long time ago on our blog:

Mom’s Papa always asked his children and grandchildren to keep pen and paper beside their beds so when they read their books and came upon an unknown word they could jot it down to look up later. When the family got together they played lots of vocabulary building games. So, when Mom and I began blogging, she wanted to avoid word ruts.

Last spring, Mom inquired whether Savannah and Miss Linda might like to collaborate (VBP) on making VBP a hop… Savannah and Miss Linda introduced us to Texas and Miss Carine creating the VBP Planning Committee.

We’ve been working diligently (VBP) ever since! Miss Ann, Zoey and Maggie from Zoolatry created a pawsome badge, which Miss Carine did really high tech thingies to! Check out Zoey, Prop Mistress extraordinaire, helping with badge arrangements.

First, she made sure the dictionary was sitting properly (VBP) on the table… (notice it is our very special dictionary with all our initials on it)…

Then she had to hop up to make sure it was going to stay straight for the photo shoot and she wanted to see if she could get the bookmark stuck in too…

Great job Zoey, thanks for the help!… as you can see, our VBP Badge is pawfect!

So let’s all talk about what to do now…

How to pawticipate


The Vocab Building Project, or VBP, is a blog hop that invites you to

learn new vocabulary and how to use it,

have fun in the process, using new words in a weekly blog post,

discover new blogs and make new friends.


What do you have to do? It is very simple.

  1. Every Thursday, Jet, Savannah, and Texas will write a blog post containing 2 to 3 words or expressions that are not often used in their blog posts (see examples here, here, and here),
  2. If you decide to join us in the fun, you have one week (you can pick any day you wish, from Thursday to the next Wednesday, that’s how flexible this blog hop is!) to write a blog post containing 2 to 3 words or expressions that you do not use often – it does not have to be the same as the hosts’, this is your choice,
  3. Pick one of the following badges by copying its code below (select the text in the box, right-click on selected code and copy), paste the code in your post (you have to paste it in the Text/HTML section when you write your post), write your post and don’t forget to add (VBP) after each new word you are using. We strongly suggest you only use 2-3 just to keep it easy and interesting,
  4. When your post is online, enter its URL/permalink by clicking on the Inlinkz image that you will find at the bottom of our Thursday VBP post,
  5. The following Thursday, at the end of our VBP posts, we will link to all the participating blogs, so that we can all visit participating blogs.

Any question? Leave a comment below and we will get back to you as soon as pawsible!

Thankful Thursday – Comic Book-ized Jetty Boy!

Hey It’s Jet Here.

My Little Dude pal, Kirby, wrote a “Thankful” post on Monday and guess who topped the list?  ‘Ol Jetty Boy!  Well, Mom and I felt super grateful and very special.  Let’s say a long blush covered both our faces!  On top of the kind words, Kirby and his Mom thanked everyone in a style befitting (VBP) superheroes!  Check this out.

Remembering Koko – Our Week of Memories

Hey It’s Jet Here.

A year ago today, Koko, our golden girl crossed OTRB.  She was the inspiration for my blog because both Mom and I needed a pick-me-up.  We did not begin posting until Halloween, as we were mired (vocab building project VBP) in sadness for quite some time.  Join us this week for our tribute to Koko, Mom’s first ever K9 and my first ever K9 sister (I think!).

Mom spent lots of time in her teen years finding ways to visit her Aunt and Uncle, when, really… she wanted to snuggle, pet and play with their gorgeous, sweet golden, Brandywine.  Her Aunt took her to the famous golden breeder in Princeton, NJ every now and then.  Mom wanted to hide and never leave the gaggle of goldens!  (Her hair color kind of matched!)  Her Aunt took her to the Westminster the year Brandy’s mate won his group.  As she got older and her cousins went off to college, she began dogsitting when her Aunt and Uncle traveled.  She was hooked on Goldens for life!

When Mom learned about rescue in college, she vowed that when the time was right to share her life with a K9, she would rescue.  Somehow, she had to reconcile that decision with her unbending desire to share her life with a golden retriever.

About 10 years ago now, she was in NYC with Mr. Fred and Rachel and met a golden on the street.  Of course she had to chat with the owner and pet the pup!  She learned that breed rescues existed.  Well, that took care of that.  Mom and Mr. Fred adopted Koko in February 2004 from Golden Rescue South Florida.  Here’s the story as told to Dog Fancy in August 2004.
