Our Debut on CNBC's Power Lunch!

Posted by Francesca

...And a new relationship with Age Group Ltd. and Petsmart

As you know, Martha is always thinking of ways to make the world a better place and that includes the world of pets. Martha loves all her pets, including the cats and birds, and we all feel like very important members of her family. Sharkey and I were so happy to hear that Martha and MSLO have entered into a new relationship with Age Group Ltd. to manufacture, market and sell pet-care products, which will be sold through PetSmart, Inc., the largest specialty retailer of services and solutions for pets. This is really great news for all of you who want stylish pet accessories, like Sharkey's and mine, including apparel, collars, leashes, bedding, grooming supplies, toys and more. You can expect to see the first of these products sometime next year. Are you as excited as we are? Check out our photos and video of us being interviewed on CNBC's Power Lunch about this new relationship.

It looks like it's a great time to be a pet - 81% of pet-owners will increase pet care spending!

Everyone at Power Lunch was so surprise at how well-behaved we were.  They just didn't realize how experienced we are!

Can you believe there was actually a bet that we, Frenchies, wouldn't sit still?  Here is Dennis Kneale - Power Lunch co-anchor -  who lost that wager to Uncle Charles.

  • I saw you gals on Power Lunch and you were so sweet and good, what's the matter LOL?
    I loved your t-shirts I love NY, I need one that has I love CA on it.
    It was exciting to see you on TV with your Mama and hear about all the doggie & (those cats) products being created soon. Great you are the tester- outers LOL!

    You look so impressive in the Suburban all set for your latest road trip.

    Happy & safe weekend to you Franny & Sharkey and everyone here at The Daily Wag

    Loving the weather here it is like spring here and not the fall in sunny CA!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    So sorry I missed your “Power Lunch” interview. That place looks like it is really big and busy with all those people around. I missed you again yesterday; too much going around here these past few days. Daddy’s getting ready for surgery again. They are going to remove that funny little bag. I’ll be really glad to see that thing go; it’s really a lot of trouble. Mommy and daddy says that it’s better than the cancer which was removed. I go to PetSmart all the time but have to wait in the car. I want to mark everything everywhere I go. It’s a male dog thing girls.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

    I am so excited about Martha's new pet line products I can't wait to go shopping with Mom. We use to shop at PetSmart but they had the same old blah blah blah outfits. I'm too cute to be wearing tacky outfits - I need bling :) You both looked great on TV as usual.

    Well the weekend is here and rain is on the way for Saturday. Mom and I have plans in the kitchen all day. She is making Steak and Kidney Pies. Dad is a Brit and loves them. Mom says it's gross - she has to cut up veal kidneys. I happen to love them and she usually cooks me up a few to munch on while she is working.

    Enjoy your weekend everyone.

  • Hi Ladies,
    Aren't you the cool looking girls in your, "I Love NY" coats? I hope the line of products will have your photos on them. After all, if it wasn't for your celebrity statis where would their products be? What were they thinking also, saying you couldn't sit still. I guess they don't know of all the books you both have read from Mama Martha's library on the proper ways to behave in public. I am sure you are off to more adventures this weekend. As for me, a lot of rsting is in order. Take care all and have a great weekend.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Every time a new product out of Martha feel I can not bear. Still feel funny about themselves whatsoever.

  • Hi Francesca and Sharkey: Momma just told me that PetSmart will be getting new things for pups. I can hardly wait - I can hardly wait - I can hardly wait till my momma can buy me some new things from Martha at PetSmart. Now I am sooooooo very excited. I will be soooo up-to-date when my dad walks me in the neighborhood.

    Tonight my mom is going to make a meatloaf for dinner. I always get just a little bit of it and a little of whatever else she is cooking to go with it. Yummy!

    Hey Kirby, don't worry cause your dad will be fine.

    Well, I best go now. No sun bath today. Rain is coming. Have a great weekend. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Francesca and Sharkey,
    We are new to your blog and well we just love it! Sassafrass and I are two 'farm girls' as well! We love to read about your adventures and the neat things you get to do. Living out in the country we see many interesting things! Our mom told us about the great things your Momma will be putting in Pet Smart. We love that place! We get to make new friends and buy all kinds of pretties when we go. Our favorite necklaces (collars) always come form there. We can't wait to get our new ones when Martha's designs come out! Well we just wanted say that we look forward to your posts everyday now and we think that 'farm girls' are the best! Sassfrass and I are off to man the crawfish pond!
    Happy Posting,
    HoneyBrowne & Sassafrass

  • Girls, you WERE so well-behaved on this interview! I saw you earlier today on mommieMartha's blog. (She had the same photos but different captions.) You two are so used to being in the limelight, that you know how to conduct yourselves like little ladies (mostly [giggle]).

    I, for one, am just ENAMORED (that could translate into 'excited' to help you understand this big word) about this new relationship with mommieMartha's company and PetSmart (and the other upcoming revelations of products with her new friends in the new year!). (And) you know what? YOU TWO have been such good ambassadors for all pets everywhere, that I truly believe this facet of mommieMartha's company is going to be a fabulous hit with puppiedoggie and kittiekittie lovers everywhere!

    Love you, beautiful girls! Have a playful weekend!

    A long, drawn-out 'muuuaaahhh' on your furry little cheeks!!!

    =^..^=

  • Hi Girl Friends, I am really excited about the new pet products that Martha will have for us pets soon in 2010! My Mom was so excited that she named the wrong TV channel that you two beautiful, well behaved girls were on to promote the new products. She asked me to correct it and said it was CNBC!!! I can hardly wait to see all of the new pet products at PetSmart and Mom is anxious , too. Thanks for the great pictures and the video. Love, Dudley Do Right xoxo

  • Kirby
    We'll keep your dad in our prayers.

  • Francesca - you are fabulous. I saw your twin on a ride through Bridgehampton this weekend. Truth is ALL French Bulldogs are fabulous right down to every last pink belly.

  • That's fantastic! Martha's products are always good quality and come in the prettiest colors and patterns. This is great news! I actually like that my cats get bored with their toys because it's fun to shop for new ones :)
