Today was very exciting because we got cards from lots of our friends. Joey and Tanner had a great card (love the tongue!). Isabella looked very cute, as always. We got a very funny card from Holly and the furry five, and an adorable card from the Fleas Gang.
Boomer, Annabelle and Snickers sent us a cute postcard, although Comet growled at the picture of Turbo Kitty. To top it off, we received a lovely handmade card from Lillie and Angel Daisie, with pictures of their people. Such cute kids. They look like they would be fun to jump on and lick! This is going to be our best Christmas ever!

And now Gas!
He's been walking around the house all day long farting. Each time he lets one rip, he quickly turns around to look at his butt, like a giant bug just crawled out of it. It is soooo disgusting. We were wrestling and I tried to bite his tail, and he farted right in my mouth. Sniffing butts is ok. Face farting isn't! Does anyone want to adopt "Mr. Stinky"?
I don't know what BLU's complaining about. My farts might be loud, but they don't stink......too much!

Crystal come home! Your crazy friend came over to our house today and look what she did to me! What kind of people do you know?
Oh, where are my manners. My name is Jazz. I don't know Comet and BLU, but I know their girl. I have played with her a few times.
My person Crystal is on vacation, so BLU's girl came over to visit me today. At first it was really fun. I handed her my squishy ball and we went out back and played with it. She would throw it and I chased it. We did that over and over and over again. She didn't even mind that I took breaks to drink water and the ball came back slimy.
After I got tired, we went in the house so I could rest a little bit. That girl went out to her car. At first I thought she was leaving, but then she came back inside. Hooray. I have somebody to play with for a little longer.
When she came back in, she had weird things in her hands. They smelled like dogs that I never met before. I guess that would be Comet and BLU. Then that girl put the silly things on my head. At first I tried to get them off, but she kept putting them back on. Finally, I decided to cooperate. Maybe if I let her see me in them, she would take them off quicker. As you can see, she captured one of my most embarrassing moments on film. I sure hope Crystal doesn't see this. She will never let me live it down.
After making me wear the stupid hats, that girl called Crystal and I got to hear her on the speaker phone. I was going to say hello, but the rawhide was just too tasty to ignore.
That girl played fetch with me for a little while longer, then she left. She told me that she would come back. That will be fun. Provided she doesn't try to dress me up again. Come home soon Crystal. I miss you.
Ahhh.... we wondered whose smell that was! Our girl came home smelling like another dog. We've smelled that before, but never saw who it was. At first we were mad that she was playing with somebody else, but when we found out that Jazz had to wear the hats, we had to laugh. We don't care if our girl plays with other dogs as long as she makes them wear the dumb hats!
Comet and BLU

Today we got our first cards.
We got a beautiful postcard from Freda with a nice alliteration. At first I thought I might need glasses, but then realized that it was Freda that was foggy, not my eyes! Comet ran up and grabbed it from the girl and wouldn't let me look at it again.
We got another card all the way from Australia! That's very far away. Our girl likes to travel to far away places, but the closest she's been to Australia is New Zealand. Maybe eventually she will visit Australia too. I just hope we can go along on that trip.
It was a bit of a challenge getting the envelope open. The glue was really strong. Comet finally bit a corner open and then the girl could help us get the card out. It was from our friends Opy and Charlie. They had on such cute bandanas. I wonder why our girl never lets us wear bandanas?
Comet had a hard time opening it up to read the message. Freda's card was easy, because it was a postcard and we could just flip it over. Opy and Charlie's card was harder. I think Comet had it upside down, because he ended up chewing a hole in the corner, instead of just lifting up the corner.
I would have felt bad if I broke the card, but Comet didn't seem to care. He claimed that it tasted yummy - like Opy and Charlie drool. He bit a hole in Freda's card so they would match!
Thank you for the wonderful cards. I think the mail lady is going to be busy for the next few weeks.

We sent our Christmas cards out last week,
The mail lady put them in her sack.
When she came this afternoon,
She brought one of our cards back.
She wrote upon it:
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.
Our friends received them,
In Canada, Asia, and UK
But not Joey and Doofus,
Who live just 10 miles away!
We want the girl to take us
to put it right in their paw.
But she doesn't want to seem like a stalker
And get in trouble with the law.
Return to sender, address unknown.
No such number, no such zone.

#1 - Even though it looks like it, the object marked A in the picture below is NOT A BALL!
#2 - Even though B and C smell the same (yummy), they do not taste the same!
#3 - I have a very mean girl to let me figure out #2!!

When she tries to put on the new sheets, I like to jump back on the bed and get in her way. Usually she uses her mean voice and tells me to get off. Today she put the sheets on the bed - right on on top of me! And tucked them in! I wasn't about to let her win this game, so I didn't move. Then she added another sheet. I refused to move. Then she added the comforter. I felt like I was being buried alive. It was really hard to get out. The girl didn't even help! She just laughed and laughed and laughed. That game wasn't so much fun after all.

Once the girl got home, she opened the box and showed us our pictures. We were really cute! We spent last night stuffing and licking envelopes. The glue tasted pretty yucky, and after a few licks my tongue got really dry. It wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be.
BLU wet the envelopes the hard way. I found a better way to get more of them wet at the same time. If you get a card that's a little yellow, that one is from me. hehehehe

Yesterday the girl found my secret hiding place for Comet's toy. It was funny that it took her so long to find it. I'm very good at hiding things.
Once she found it, Comet showed how greedy he was by hogging both toys. Did you see his face? What a psycho! He wouldn't even let me get close to either of them.
I think I should steal one of those toys in the middle of the night and hide it again. Or maybe I should mail it to one of my new friends, like Peony Stormrider. Only I'm afraid that he would lose it in all the waves he plays in.
Joey and Hana were trying to figure out whether the toys were hamburgers or hot dogs. My girl has always called it a hot dog, even though she thinks it is weird to have hot dogs with sesame seeds on the bun.
Here it is next to my hamburger toy. Help me decide. Hamburger? or Hot dog?

Because I'm a chow (mix) I have a pretty blue tongue. As it would turn out, my girl is a science geek, and spent several years doing research on a virus called bluetongue virus. Don't worry, that's not what caused my tongue to turn blue. An annoying biting gnat spreads that disease to cows, sheep, deer, and similar animals.
So scientists don't have to write such a long word all the time, bluetongue virus is shortened to BLU (in all capital letters). Instead of naming me Blue like the color, or Blu like some other dogs, she named me BLU to make sure that it was always the virus! I think it is just plain rude.
She thought it was clever, especially when my former best friend Tequila was still alive. Most people thought Tequila got her name from the alcohol, but she really didn't. Tequila had to go to the doctor for hook worms when she first moved in with my girl. The girl started calling her "wormy butt dog" and "little miss wormy bottom" before she picked out an "official" name. A little bit of common sense hit the girl and she was smart enough to realize that once the doctor fixed Tequila, the name wouldn't be appropriate anymore. Being the dork that she is, my girl almost named her Ancylostoma, (see a scary picture here) but decided that it would sound dumb calling her that. Instead, she decided to think of something else that had a wormy bottom. A bottle of tequila popped into her brain (even though it should have been mezcal), and hence the name. She had two dogs named after parasites! Hmmphf. I wonder if that's what she really thought of us!
How did everyone else get their name?
The girl wasn't quite as obnoxious when naming me. At first she was going to abandon her science/parasite theme. She thought since BLU was named after the color of her tongue, maybe she would name me Pink, since that's the color of my tongue. Luckily a few friends of hers told her that she couldn't call a boy dog Pink. She thought about making it a bit darker and calling me Red, but decided that her "logic" would take too long to explain to people.
She ended up sticking with the science geek theme, but at least I'm not a parasite! Because Snowball and other snow related names are common for my breed, she wanted something a little less obvious. The girl tried to think of something that looked like a blur when it moved, had a long tail, and was snowy. A comet fit that description and still tied to her "science theme" of dog naming.
The worst part is that she calls me strange things related to my name. Sometimes instead of calling me Comet, she calls me Commie (maybe she still thinks of me being red). Other times, she will sing my name and call me "Comet Comet Comet Comet Comet Chameleon. You come and go, you come and go". I'm never sure what to do. Should I stay or should I go?
But the worst one is when she sings that Comet song to the tune of the Colonel Bogey March. I think they screwed up the words where she grew up, because other people sing it with the words green, gasoline, listerine, or something similar.
How did your people sing this song?
Are there strange things that your people do to your name?

Now I can read all of my friends' blogs and find out what fun things they did today. I can also shop online to find some fun Christmas cards to send to my new friends from Dogs With Blogs. Every day I bark at the mail lady because she never brings me anything. Hopefully soon BLU and I will get lots of Christmas cards from our new friends. ~~Comet

It is very frustrating because I'm so exciting and have so much to say.
Today I got tired of waiting for my girl to fix it and took matters into my own paws. I think I finally got it to work.
Now, how do I keep my girl from touching the computer again? Any ideas?

Even though I tricked him into eating Giardia yesterday, I didn't really want him hurt, so I hope they didn't cut off his tail. Nope. I just looked. His tail is still there. Whew!
The girl went out to take a few pictures, and the people gave her a bottle of water. When she came back in the house, I heard her telling a friend on the phone about the Sikh nagar kirtan (public procession) to celebrate Guru Nanak Dev Ji's birthday.
Usually I just have joggers and people walking their dogs go past my house. What a treat today!

My girl must have got what she needed, because she stopped chasing me around with the cup yesterday morning. Good thing too. It was just plain weird!
Since Comet kept getting in the way when my girl chased me with the cup, I found a way to pay him back. I told him I had a fun toy, but I really made him eat Giardia! hehehe. I hope he gets sick and the girl has to chase him with a cup!

BLU ran in the house. I was busy peeing on the ground and didn't notice why BLU ran so fast. When I finished marking my spot, I looked up to head into the house and the mean girl sprayed me with the hose. I hate the hose! I did not deserve that one bit!
I don't know what BLU's problem is. I think it would be fun to try to pee in the cup. While the girl was chasing BLU with the cup, I was chasing the cup. I lifted my leg a few times and started to aim, but the girl wouldn't let me. I thought it looked like a fun game.
