JACKIE’S CORNER ….. Jackie’s Pet Peeves!

To my furry friends, I am sure you have a few things that irk your leash, cause I sure do!

Pet Peeve #1
Why can’t I have a snack after my teeth are brushed?  What is with that, shouldn’t I be rewarded for being a good girl and by letting my human shove a brush in my mouth. Ok, so I do love the coconut and turmeric combo, but don’t tell my human!

Pet Peeve #2
How many of you sleep with your humans?  I do most of the time, but sometimes, I just want some solitude and take off to my crate, my zillions of blankets and of course a hot water bottle! I am spoiled! But, when I do sleep on the bed, which I thought was mine too, I like to stretch out, tell me why 6” is not enough space for one human. No, I guess not because I am moved over to make room for my humans and woken from my sweet dreams!

Pet Peeve #3
So, one of my humans works from home, and when I want attention, I should get it, don’t you think?  Sometimes she makes room for me on the desk so I can snooze or watch her do whatever she does,  (she’s asks If I am happy now, of course I am).  Then the printer goes off, well what’s with that noise, I am out of there, that monster is not going to get me, thanks Printer for ruining my naps!

Pet Peeve #4
I am going to get serious now, this is more than a pet peeve!  As you all know, I am a water baby, I love to swim, I have temper tantrums (not as bad as when I was younger) if I see water and can’t get to it. One of my favorite swim holes is Rolley Lake, my humans take me out first thing in the morning a few times a week, I am so happy. But, last week, what’s with the fisherman at this dog beach that’s about 10 feet wide! Do they not have anywhere else to fish at around the lake? Then, the Ranger comes by and says no more Off Leash.  How on earth am I supposed to swim on a LEASH! I guess a dog got away from their human and ran onto the public beach and created a ruckus. So now they say it’s a liability. There goes Rolley. I say to humans if you can’t control your furball, then don’t ruin the fun for those that just want to swim, keep them on leash.  Good thing I have a back-up swim hole!

Pet Peeve #5
Continuing on, with my rant!  If, your beloved furball poops, please pick it up! And, please don’t just put it a doggy bag and leave it there.  Because of a few bad humans, it ruins the fun for the rest of us.  I can no longer go to my favourite ball field and play ball!  A dog needs to run and play, so please humans, be responsible pet parents.

Pet Peeve #6
Last one, I promise.  I used to go to dog parks, but they are dangerous!  I don’t think there should be balls, toys or food at dog parks, they just create trouble. I know, because I am trouble, I love food and if you have a Chuck-it ball, well your dog may think it’s his, but I will take it and make it mine. So I don’t go to dog parks because it’s just safer that way. So humans, keep it simple, and just let us dogs be dogs at the dog park.

Ok, that’s it.  My work is done for today. I need a nap!  See you next time!

INTRODUCING JACKIE’S CORNER!

Hello Everybody!

If you don’t know me already, let me introduce myself!  My name is Jackie, and I am the Supervisor at “In Memory of Maggie May”.  I do go by many other names, including ….  Miss J., Jackie May (when I’m in trouble, which is very rare), Monkey, Baby Girl, Cuddle Bug, Princess, Get Back Here!, Don’t Eat That!, etc, etc. I am very popular, and do a super fantastic job, especially at being adorable.

My role here at IMOMM is changing due to my worker bee (aka mum), being so busy working at her day job, taking care of IMOMM the best she can, and taking care of me (and my pops).  I am taking on additional responsibilities and will be the “Spokesdoggy” at IMOMM, because I can’t sew (I have two left paws).

We are pleased to introduce Jackie’s Corner, where I will be sharing my thoughts, talking about what’s going on at IMOMM, and answering any of your questions! Of course, everything will have to be translated into UDBL (Universal Doggy Bark Language), but that shouldn’t be a problem!

We have a few announcements right now: We will be at the 2018 BC & Yukon Agility Championships June 8-10 at Thunderbird Stadium in Langley, raising money for the Maggie May Fund, we hope you drop by for a visit and check out our Maggie May blankets and crate pads. Our 5th Anniversary Quilt is in the works, we are so excited and we will announce details soon!

Feel free to contact me anytime with your questions, thoughts, ideas, and of course if you have spare time, we welcome any help!

Welcome to Jackie’s Corner!

FOR BUSTER … thank you for your support!

Just delivered and the first to be in our “2019” Anniversary Quilt!  Buster carefully selected the print for his Maggie May blanket, handsome in blues!

 

 

When Buster’s Mum wrote to us that “It’s like Buster instinctively knows it’s his and he loves it already”, how sweet is that!

 

 

 

A happy customer supporting a pet in need!  It was a sincere pleasure to meet Buster and his Mum, and we thank them for supporting the Maggie May fund.

INTRODUCING THE HRH BLANKET CLUB!

IN MEMORY OF HRH FINNEGAN

We are proud to introduce The HRH Blanket Club, lovingly dedicated to the memory of HRH Finnegan!

We are so appreciative of the support we receive for the Maggie May fund, that we wanted to recognize those supporters that have gone above and beyond by purchasing multiple, and we mean multiple, Maggie May blankets for their furry loved ones. They have become special members of the Maggie May family and we are truly blessed by their kind and giving souls. Without mentioning these human’s true identities, nor revealing how many blankets that have in their stash (because we have lost count), we thank them with all our hearts.

We endearingly call the club the Crazy Blanket Club, but seriously, we have dedicated the club to HRH Finnegan. HRH Finnegan has been a furry friend of IMOMM since 2015 when he received his first of many Maggie May blankets. We were privileged to finally meet Finnegan at the Agility Championships in 2017, a handsome and truly regal prince. Finnegan was diagnosed with Lymphoma in November, but sadly lost his brave battle and passed away peacefully in March 2018. He was spoiled, very much loved and the perfect brother to Fysti and Fender.

We know only too well the devastation of losing a furry loved one to this horrible disease called cancer. Our hearts were heavy when we received the news. We knew then that we wanted to dedicate the club to Finnegan and after a while we reached out to Finnegan’s humans about doing so. They were honoured, they suggested we call the club, The HRH Blanket Club, recognizing His or Her Royal Highness, because no matter the gender, the breed, the species,  they are and always will be royalties in our hearts!

RIP Finnegan, we hope you have met up with our Maggie and are running free!

We are pleased to welcome to the club:  HRH Finnegan, Fysti, Fender, Salsa, Rosie, Tilly, Zesty, Fixx, Ritzy, Maddy, Whiski, Rum Toddy & Keoke!

FENDER, HRH FINNEGAN & FYSTI

ROSIE & SALSA

TILLY, ZESTY, FIXX, & RITZY

FOR JINX ….. congratulations!

Jinx was the winner of our 5th annual Maggie May Birthday Blanket Contest and on Friday we decided to take a road trip to Hope and hand deliver his blanket.  It appears Hope is a lucky spot, 3 winners from there so far.

 

It is always special to us when we can deliver in person, it was lovely to meet his Mum, unfortunately Jinx was out catching mice when we arrived, but she knew he would love his blanket.

 

 

Congratulations again Jinx, enjoy your blanket!

FOR SAWYER ….. thank you for your support!

 

We love the blues that were chosen for Sawyer’s blanket by his Auntie and pal Rainier!

 

 

We were sent these lovely photo’s of sweet Sawyer and were told he loves his Maggie May blanket and snuggled upon it right away.

 

 

We always say that there is something very special in our blankets … Maggie’s spirit, and she is watching over Sawyer as he recovers from surgery.

 

 

Sawyer, we are thinking of you and wish you well!
