Follow Up Friday – The Puffster Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

follow-up-fridayOur friend, Miss Jodi, Heart Like a Dog, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea and has successfully turned her wonderful idea into a robust blog hop!

I’ve got Mom transcribing my responses to your comments swiftly and thoughtfully… even though she came down with this “cold thingie” from the biscuit earning place.  We’re getting there…

Saturday – Mom Took the Pledge 

tidy cat litterWell, it turns out that many of you have taken similar pledges to celebrate the holidays in alternate ways.  We enjoyed reading the points that resonated with you most as well as your creative ideas.  Some comments expressed excitement to pursue the options presented.  Keep us posted; we’ll do the same.  Oh and in sad irony, the one black Friday purchase was returned for reasons Mom never expected this week.

Sunday – Like a Pig in Mud 

The Black & White Sunday Blog Hop could not have been more perfect to show off my enjoyment of our first experience at the Tropical Bark Park.  Take:

  • One handsome manly man K9 with fluffy black (with a smidge of white) fur,
  • Add lots of dirt,
  • Mix with wet, black, ooey gooey mud
  • And you get a Joyous Jetty Boy who will endure Spa Day upon returning home!

Mischief Monday – LMP Loses Her Title Due to a Beige Shoe

4The ladies in Blogville sure got behind Mom on this one!  Little Miss Perfect moved from simply relocating Mom’s sneakers to removing Mom’s one and only pair of emergency, semi-comfortable heels and redesigning one of them.  A debate remains as to whether in K9 parlance (VBP – vocab builder project) this means JJ has the shoe “gene”.

Tuesday – Sad News and Good Mews 

Unfortunately, we began our post with the sad news that Puffy had unexpectedly crossed over the Rainbow Bridge Monday Morning.  Miss Linda and my BFF (best feline friend) Savvy from Savannah’s Paw Tracks had already alerted Miss Ann from Zoolatry by the time Mom returned home from the biscuit earning place.  In Mom’s inbox was this beautiful badge and on our blog kind and thoughtful comments poured in from around the world.  Thank you, it really helps.

Puffy Forever

We also shared Good Mews Feline Shelter’s Cookbook info.  This no-kill, cage free shelter will take the book profits and use them to help the felines in residence – PAWESOME.  Mom contributed a recipe for the book, btw!

Wordless Wednesday – We Feel the Love 

https://heyitsjethere.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/sending-love-5.jpg?w=150&h=94Comments continued to land in our inbox comforting us about Puffy’s crossing.  We  feel wrapped in love, support and comfort from our Blogville extended family.  You all continue to amaze us with your thoughtfulness and support.

Thankful Thursday – Mom’s Promise to Puffy 

Thanks for reading a rather long (even for us!) tribute sharing some memories and photos of Puffy.  So many of you commented that after reading you felt like you knew him; we could not have asked for better feedback!  A few of you inquired about his additional mischief… I’ll see if I can get Mom to move some memories from the back of her head to the front and share them over the next while!

Another great supportive day.



Follow Up Friday – Question Mark Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, Heart Like a Dog, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea and recently turned her wonderful idea into a new blog hop!  We loved co-hosting last week, thanks  for the invitation.

Before we begin, we wanted to let you know that we decided to donate to help the animals challenged by Superstorm Sandy through Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.  We chose Best Friends, because in Mom’s experience, they walk the talk.  She’s followed them for about 15 years now and even took my human sister there to volunteer about 7 years ago.  We will also participate in some way with Heart Like a Dog’s “Dogs of Blogville” calendar contest, which will send help to a blogpal in need.

Saturday Pet Bloggers Hop – Blogiversary – Where did the Time Go?

Boy oh boy, how kind, generous and supportive you were, acknowledging our first year of blogging.  Some of you even thought Mom made the cake!  (not so… just a photo from Google Images!!)  We cannot express our appreciation of your open arms/paws.

Black & White Sunday – A Daylight Savings Time Riddle?

A resounding (VBP – vocab builder project) cheer for all of our blogpals who answered correctly!  I’m improving… I went from 4:10 to 4:38 to 4:43 to 6:00 (long election night walk and tv night!) to 5:12 to 5:20!  Our favorite comment suggested I had a black rug on top of me from the back of my head to my tail.  We responded that I would NEVER wear a toupee, I sprout naturally gorgeous black fluff!

 Mischief Monday – Guess Who Came to Dinner?

Simba of course!  Most of you feel he arrived in time for Mom’s yummy cooking.  While true, (and Mom says thanks by the way), we believe he knows we will welcome him when he escapes, keep him safe, (give him some tidbits), and play with him until his family arrives.  Several of you wanted to join us for dinner as well… Mom says… ANYTIME!

Tasty Tuesday – Who likes Fennel?

Surprisingly, Mom’s faithful Kitchen K9s do!  Oh yes, we got your attention on this one.  Lots of comments expressed curiosity and surprise about fennel in general and K9s eating it specifically!  Our pack mate Neve and Miss Beverly wrote in to share how much Neve enjoys thinly sliced fennel, while Miss Beverly prefers her fennel roasted!

Oh, Miss Wendy thought we were wearing coats, actually we had our Halloween costumes on because … it was HALLOWEEN!

Wordless Wednesday – Who needed a break from the election?

EVERYONE!!!  So glad you enjoyed the comic relief of Dudley’s video as much as we did; thanks to Mollie for sending in a comment describing how to post videos for Mom… Also, Little Miss Professional Paw Shaker has stayed grounded so far after winning her seat on the Happy, Happy commission!

Thankful Thursday – Who needs to Apologize?

MOM!  Yup, Mom went ROGUE, adlibbing a title I DID NOT APPROVE and scared a bunch of my blogpals to bits! Sorry, Mea Culpa etc… I will keep a shorter leash on her transcribing activities.  All are healthy at Casa Jet.

Glad we thought to share nicknames for seven inhabitants of Casa Jetty as part of our “Seven Things About Me” Award Procedure.  Now you have the inside scoop!  Gratitude again to our four pals who bestowed the award on us.

Another great question mark week.



Wordless Wednesday: Post Election Levity

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Election results: Little Miss Professional Paw Shaker captures the District 7  Happy Happy State Representative seat by a landslide margin!

In light of the intensity of the now completed (thank Ceiling K9) pawlitical shenanigans, we bring you a funny video Mom found on NPR.

Here’s a still photo of Dudley and the video link (you know Mom is tech challenged and cannot figure out if she can even post a video!) Check it out, it’s worth the 90 seconds!!!

Another great light-hearted Dudley day!

Thanks to BlogPaws for sponsoring the Wordless Wednesday Hop.

Follow Up Friday – Co-Host Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

I’m delighted and excited to join my pals Sampson and Delilah (and Miss Jodi of course!) in co-hosting today’s hop!  Sampson is a bit uncomfortable today, so, please hop over and send him some extra lovies!  Join us won’t you?

First Up:  Continued safe wishes for those affected by Sandy.  May your power get restored swiftly.  Please listen to the authorities regarding the safety of your water, downed power lines, debris and such.  Let us know how we can help when you can.

Please forgive our delay in responding to all your comments, we’re still digging out.  🙂

Saturday – Mom?  Ok, Mom went to Cleveland for her Summer Camp Reunion (after 35 years… and… in case you’re curious… her camp was in Maine!)  I gave her the day off!

Black and White Sunday: Golden Pumpkins

A newish blogpal, Miss Megan, posted great K9 stencils.  We selected JJ’s heritage to show you since mine was not represented.  Many of you responded that you wanted to go to Miss Megan’s site to see if you could find your heritages.  Now we have 365 days to find a talented pumpkin carver!

Mischief Monday: Hide and Seek

JJ and I scoured (VBP – vocab building project) the house for quite a while trying to find Mom.  As you already know, she had flown the coop and landed in Cleveland for the weekend!  Mom appreciated all the humans who commented that Moms need breaks every now and then to rejuvenate (Miss Jodi’s VBP word!).  Thanks for making sure that JJ and I received the proper care from Miss Angela (we did!).   The fur family members wrote in to confirm that Mom gave us the proper amounts of extra treats and lovies for taking time away… thanks for having our backs!

Tasty Tuesday: Orbs of Goodness

Bunches of you like tomatoes, whoo hoo!  The humans enjoyed the recipe; Mom really appreciated the comment about her always posting great and delicious recipes!  Dalton, from Wagg Foods in the UK offered to become another of Mom’s Kitchen K9s!  (Mom said the more the merrier!)

Wordless Wednesday: Jetter and Allie

Mom’s friend, Miss Shari (many of you thought Miss Shari was Mom in the photo!) shared her gorgeous goldendoodle, Allie with the Camp gang at her Sunday brunch.  By then, Mom felt severely fur deprived and gave Allie lots of lovies.  So many of you commented how beautiful you thought both Allie and Miss Shari are… correct in both regards!

I had to share the great Halloween Frankenweenie picture my friend Mollie made for me again.  Yes, I scared the fur off myself for all of you who asked!  Everyone wished us a Happy Halloween and we hope you had a great one, too.  My friend, Clowie said that Spain is just beginning to celebrate the holiday in the urban areas, but… not where she lives just yet.

Thankful Thursday:  Chewies for Gotcha Day 

Thank you for your gracious compliments on our first ever review.  Many of you appreciated my generous nature, sharing my gift certificate from Mr. Brent with JJ.  Mr. Brent confirmed that antler splits like the Moose split we ordered do not last as long as deer antlers.  Miss Dianda asked if they delivered to Europe… we emailed Mr. Brent and will let you know.

Mom promised a Gotcha Day stretch since she was out of town last Sunday, my formal Gotcha day… Chewy.com got my celebration off to an early start, even though Mom’s late!  So many of you wished me well, I’m still blushing with gratitude.

Another great co-hosting week!



Wordless Wednesday – Mom’s Cleveland Fur Connection

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Again, we wish our furriends affected by Sandy the safest conditions under the circumstances, please let us know how we can help as soon as you can.

Also, Happy Halloween!

On Monday, I shared that Mom spent last weekend in Cleveland and that by day 4, she was completely fur deprived.  Well, lucky for her, the camp reunion goodbye brunch was hosted generously by Miss Shari and Allie.  Allie is a gorgeous Golden Doodle.  My buddy, Sam, also a doodle, never looked like Allie, so, Mom asked Miss Shari and found out that Allie went to the Spa and got “blown out!”

Nice to meet you…

Miss Shari showing Mom how Allie gives kisses…

Allie listened to directions and was the first to take her spot on the couch to participate in Camp songs and last stories

Another great fur friend day.

Follow Up Friday: Jetters Edition

Hey It’s Jet Here.

Before we recap, we MUST share with you how much all your comments, thoughts of support, words of care and lovies meant to Miss Wendy on the loss of her sweet Barkley this week.  (noted in Tuesday’s post.)  In case you didn’t see her response, which we posted late that evening, scroll down to the end of the comments.  We knew our blogpals would rally to her side; thank you for taking Miss Wendy and her family under your paws.

Our friend, Miss Jodi, Heart Like a Dog, initiated this great idea to update readers on previous posts.  She created a lovely badge to go with her idea and recently turned her wonderful idea into a new blog hop!  Congrats!

Saturday: Honoring Adopt-a-Shelter Month

We began our week by highlighting two super adoption events in our area.  We thought both events creatively selected themes with corresponding posters.  The first, which begins at midnight tonight is a Super Adoption beginning with kittens and puppies.  The second paired hunky firefighters with rescue K9s strutting the runway.  We appreciated your support, understanding and dismay that I, Gentleman Jetty, was not asked to appear on either poster.

Sunday: Black & White Little Cat

When Mom unexpectedly helped Mr. Andy out on Saturday afternoon with Austin, she finally caught Little Cat in daylight licking his/her chops.  Mom’s befriended LC and now, when she visits, LC will brush up against her and permit petting.  You asked us to find out LC’s real name… Mr. Andy said, “kitty”, however, when he says it, with affection, it sounds like “koodie!”  (Another mystery solved!)

Mischief Monday:  A Fox?

Turns out that many of you have foxes in your area, too!  We subsequently learned, that, while cute, foxes can cause quite a bit of mischief and beyond.  Our friend, Miss Heather found out from Health Services that the urine can be toxic to children! (I know, you’re wondering why a human child would be in that situation… however, if the foxes are in your backyard… you do the math…)  Humans also have foxes as pets, who knew?  As you suggested, we will continue to admire from afar.  Oh, we have a few entries on possible names for our new fox: Foxy and Felicia… keep those ideas coming!

Tasty Tuesday: We Honestly Love Radishes!

We featured one of my personal fave veggies this week – radishes.  Many of you commented that:

  1. You didn’t know K9s could eat radishes.
  2. Many humans did not know how many varieties of the yummy radish exist.
  3. Many of the humans either enthusiastically enjoyed radishes or kind of wrinkled their noses.
  4. 3. A few K9s admitted to hiding said veggie under various furniture species with other offered veggies!

Wordless Wednesday: JETTERS

Boy oh Boy did we spook and scare you (and ourselves!) with Mollie’s wickedly talented Frankenweenie picture of yours truly!  For many of you who worried that I would remain in that scary form, Gentleman Jetty is back, gorgeous fluffy black fur and all!

Thankful Thursday: Triple Thanks

We appreciated your compliments on our award and our apology to Princess Zena.

Another great wrap up to the week!
