The season five premiere of MARTHA

Posted by Sharkey

Last Monday was so exciting because we made our big appearance on the first day of the fifth season of Martha's TV show. But, we're wondering why they keep calling the show MARTHA, when it really should be called MARTHA with Francesca and Sharkey. Perhaps it's time for a new negotiation.

Driving to the TV studio along the West Side Highway, we were so proud to see our Martha on a big billboard.  Good thing we had our camera ready.

I decided to leave the important decisions to Martha and her producers - I needed to get a quick beauty nap so that I would look like a million dollars to all of my adoring fans.

Oh, hi Martha - Yes, I know we're needed on set, but it's just so interesting in the control room.  See you in a flash.

Such big, strong arms! - but, a little heavy with the cologne.  And what's with that chin stubble?

If you're wondering what it's like seeing things from my perspective.....feet, feet, and more feet!

Great - an intermission break - Let's see if my friends sent me any comments - time to check the Barkberry.

  • Hi Gals,

    Let's rumble dude!!!! have you been watching TV while Mama is away? Instead of Animal Planet West Side Story perhaps or Grease!!!!
    So cute, this is one of my favorite Daily Wag blogs yet. Love the captions very creative from whom????
    Sharkey looks like Franny "split the scene" and left you to your own devices but at least you found the grub.!
    Pretty darn cool to see Mama on her own billboard isn't it? Must be fun for her to pass by a giant billboard and confusing to you gals to see her there and in the car at the same time HA!

    It was a nice season opener somehow I couldn't help but think of Paw Paw and feel him there in "spirit".

    Good to see you"celebs" back for another season.

    Until next time,

    Mrs. Bosley Chow Chow

  • Glad to have you all back for a new season of the show! We never miss it!

  • F & S

    That chichen Martha cooked looked YUMMY!!! I'm hope you both got a taste. I have to say I've never seen my mom cook a chicken that still had feet - strange looking bird.

    Where were you both yesterday??? I think the people at Home Depot should have made you both an apron and not just Martha. My mom is so happy that Martha's products are going to be in Home Depot - she just loves going to that store. You might want to mention to Mr. Home Depot that since MSLO is now working with their company they might want to make it pet friendly. I would love to ride in the cart up and down those isles - lots of cool looking stuff in that store.

    You need to open your own division of MSLO called FSLO and carry you own line of dog products. Home Depot can feature your products. I can help with the merchandise since I'm an avid shopper and know how a spoiled dog is treated.

    Think about it and maybe we can sit down and have a meeting, I have lots of ideas.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I watched the Martha Show yesterday and did not see you two there like you were on Monday. I guess you had to take care of other things. Mama gave me some salmon for lunch so I just took a nap. Now it’s not that I don’t like your mama; it’s because you were not there. Anyway, I like to nap after my lunch. Maybe you will be on today. I’ll check and see. Now it’s breakfast time and another nap.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello Ladies,
    What celebs you both are--your best blog yet. Since Mom doesn't get The Martha Stewart Show here, it is soooo nice to get reports on it. The new gold harnesses are the bomb and you both looked so sparklin' and beauuuutiful. Do you girls have your own autograph book? If not, you should think about it, with all the famous people you meet. The billboard after Martha's should be one of you girls. Your adoring fans certainly would love that. Your best blog yet girls, and that chicken dinner looked so yummy--I bet you both had to sleep all the way home after such a hard day's work. Take care.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Wow, it looks like you had fun and good food on Monday! What lucky girls you are! My Mom is very happy that Martha's products are going to be at Home Depot, too. She says the only problem with Home Depot is that they don't provide enough motorized carts for handicapped people, so she can't shop there most of the time! Anyway...Sharkey & Franny, have you thought about marketing your expertise concerning shoes and feet? As shoe and feet specialists, you could be valuable consultants to the fashion community. What do you think?

  • Hi Sweeties,
    Great blog, you really made me laugh today! I think pictures 18 & 19 are the cutest close-ups but I like all of the pictures even though there were a lot of feet like you say. Nice Barkberry Sharkey - did you get any messages? I'll have to remember to send you one next time I know you're going to be appearing. I think you should have some pawtograph photos for your fans. I'd put one right next to my computer. I hope you'll think about that because you have lots of fans. Catch you later.

  • oh I'm so jealous! mommie delia won't let me eat people food, but daddie Al gave me some chicken and I loooove people food. I sure would have liked to sample that Martha chicken, it indeed looked yummy. You Pups are so lucky to be able to go with your mommie Martha and spent time with her at work...sure am happy for you Fancesca and Sharkey, what a great life you have!!
    till later,
    your feline friend "Kitty"

  • ...email?...now the barkberry?!...wow, you two! - I'll bet you two just CONK out at night when you lay your little heads down on your pillows each evening! You're as bad as Mandy - always something to do!

    I saw you on the premiere show, as you entered with mommieMartha. You're right! I agree! - it should be The MARTHA, Francesca, and Sharkey Show! You three just go hand-in-hand - a package deal!

    Oh, your little gold harnesses were just beautiful on each one of you. It was very becoming on you, Sharkey, with your blonde hair. Frannie's brindle-stripe-highlights were especially accented while wearing gold, too! I'm a gold-girl and wear it well with my strawberry-blonde hair and freckled face. I guess my freckles are MY beauty marks - just like the little pink one on your beautiful little face, Sharkey.

    (What, Mandy?...tell me again, honey - mommie didn't hear you...oh, okay, honey - I'll tell them...)

    Mandy declares that it's Whisker Wednesday...she wanted to remind me to tell everybody and to wish them a mrrrowy day.

    (...another 'to-do' checked off...)

  • (responses to my fellow-bloggers):

    Trish, pawtographed pictures are an EXCELLENT idea! Frannie-n-Sharkeybarkey (mommieMartha, too!), take that on advisement, okay? What a nifty idea! (Yeah, I'd display one proudly, too!)

    Zoe, I loveloveLOVE the FSLO concept, too! Maybe there could be a friendly acquisition/merger between MSLO and FSLO! (Wait, Cindy...FSLO has to become its own entity, first!)

    Goodgood innovative ideas, friends!

  • Hello Friends,

    I saw you both on Martha's season premiere. As always, you two looked fabulous. So did Martha. Mom and I are happy Martha is back for another wonderful season.

    I think you two should renegotiate your contract to include a certain number of visits on the Martha show. I also think you should increase your treat remuneration while you two are at it! I know a good lawyer to help negotiate the best deal should you both be interested.

    XO,
    Fisher Jimmy

  • Hi Girl Friends, I sure did have fun watching you two on Monday's first show of the fifth season and looking at these special pictures of the fun you had behind the scenes and during the show was a blast.
    When will you be on again?! I missed you on Tuesday and Wednesday. Have you negotiated with Martha yet?! I'll check with you later. Love, Dudley Do Right xoxo

  • Martha commented on using stinging nettles for allergy treatment for the pups. How is it dispensed for dogs? Thanks
