Duped again!

Posted by Francesca

It's been really cold where we live and Sharkey and I have been spending a lot of time indoors.  We were exploring the house the other day when we came upon a most unusual collection.  We thought at first, that someone, or something, had been very busy gathering produce.  Upon further inspection, I realized that you just can't believe everything you see or hear.

Franny, come and look at all of these fruits and vegetables!

Why, it's a veritable harvest!  Where did it come from?

I'll just take a sniff - I love fresh produce.

A watermelon just the right size for me!

Sharkey, there's something not quite right.  Take a whiff of this banana.

You're right - bananas are supposed to really have an aroma.  I smell nothing.

Sharkey, remember that Martha was recently in Thailand?

I saw her talking on her TV show about the trip and she showed a photo of these fruits and vegetables that she found there.  She said they were made of ceramic.  They're just not real!  We've been duped again!

  • Good Morning Girls

    I saw those little fruits on the show yesterday (mom records it and we watch it together at night) they are cute little things. Can't imagine what someone would do with them though??? I am amazed that you didn't help yourself to a few and chew them up - someone must have been watching.

    I'm glad your moma is home she was away for a long time. I bet you were really happy to see her. Question - what's up with all the cats??? You are being invaded by hairballs!!! You need more dogs in that house enough with the cats. Why don't the two of you grab Uncle Carlos and go buy yourself a few more Frenchies to have around the house - go ahead - you have your own money - buy a few more dogs. Rebell against those cats!!!

    Let me know if you need any help.

  • Hello Ladies,
    Don't feel bad ladies. Look at it this way, maybe Mama Martha is just showing you the things she got on her trip. Maybe she bought you something special and is leading up to it, and going to hide it around the house. I bet it is good to have her back. Are you all going to have a bonding weekend? Have a great day--snow coming soon her in Lakewood, Colorado.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    It’s really good to see that I’m not the only one who gets duped. Daddy often plays tricks on me and tries to make me think that he has something for me to eat which is not real. I really am beginning to catch on really quick now, but I just play along with him. Makes him feel better. The last time he did that, he had some sort of fuzzy stuffed animal. I even snapped at it’s tail just to “play” along. A guy has to do what a guy has to do sometimes.
    Catch you later, Kirby

  • ohhh poor Sharkey and Francesca to be duped again! well mommie delia was also duped, she thought those where her favorite candies made from Marzipan...will be interesting to see what mommie Martha will do with these.
    Got to say they are really cute, mommie delia has some Mini Glass Veggies from Italy she has had for over 40 years.
    It's cold again so I will catch up on my sleep as I was out catin around all night in 9 degrees...I think daddie Al forgot to let me in before going to bed...meeuw, how could you!!!!

  • Hi Francesca and Sharkey: I cannot believe that the two of you got punked. But if they were real fruit and you ate all of them, just think what it would do to your tummies. You would have the runs for days!

    Hey Kirby - My momma plays tricks on me too! Sometimes she will cup her hands together and say "Gracie, come see the snack I have for you." Of course I just go wandering over to her cupped hands and then she says "surprise" and then makes a noise with her hands that sounds like when you have gas. It is really funny! Although it's not really funny cause there's no snack. So I give her my special hurt feelings look and then she feels bad and gets me a snack.

    When is the warm weather gonna be here? It's too cold to go on long walks. Well then, I'll go take a nap. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • I was on to mommieMartha's little 'prank' right away, 'cause I saw these little fruits-n-veggies on her show yesterday and recognized them right away.

    I've got to say, though, girls - you two were awfully cute while trying to figure things out! It's good that you compare notes and figure that 'two heads are better than one'.

    It has been cold everywhere! - even at our friend Trish's house in Florida! I know it's hard to stay amused while being stuck indoors, girls - gee whiz, even our little ('beautiful calico') Mandy girl has been bored and has been asking to go outside in her little harness/leash. What I'm trying to say is, for cats' sake, girls, PUHlease (I say, puhlease!) try to stay out of trouble, ya' hear?! We've got a longgg winter ahead of us!

    We don't want anymore pawprints to be taken - for fun, or for any OTHER reasons! (Comprenez-vous?!)

  • Hi Girl Friends, I am so happy for you now that your beautiful Mom, Martha, is finally home again! How happy you both must be!!! This blog about the really cute little fruits and vegetables sure was fun to see!!. My Mom saw those little ceramic things on Martha's TV show yesterday and we both thought they were really neat!! Have fun and stay warm during this cold weather session. Love, Dudley Do Right xoxoxo
