Sharkey Was a Lazy Dog

Posted by Francesca

Recently, Carlos was asked to deliver some chairs from Bedford to Kevin's office in New York City.  Kevin needed them for a photo shoot.  You know, moving furniture is challenging and very strenuous.  So, when Carlos asked for my help, I was happy to oblige.  Sharkey saw me struggling and when I asked for a little assistance, she just sat there!  I tell you - some dogs!

Sharkey!  Would you please jump back here and help us with these chairs?

Oh, bother!  Just watch and see how it's done.  Carlos - you push and I'll pull.

Seriously Sharkey, don't try and take any credit for this delivery when we get to Kevin's office.  You have not been cooperative!

Carlos, now do you see why I get so upset?  Some of us are just meant to be workers while others are just slackers.  Let's hit the road!

Here we are at the MSLO offices with Martin and Carlos - Carlos is carrying me because he knows how hard I've worked!  It's kind of a bonus.  Like I said - kind of.

It's always good to see Hannah Milman.  Hey Hannah, how is the new craft line for dogs coming along?  We'd be happy to consult.  Will it be sold at Michaels or at PetSmart?

OK, enough distractions!  Guys, please be careful with those chairs!  They need to be perfect for Kevin!  And I mean PERFECT!

That's right, Kevin.  I deserve all the petting.  Sharkey only came along for the ride.  She was most unhelpful.  By the way, I LOVE your key chain!

  • Hey Sharkey - I'm right there with ya let Franny do all the work :) If she was foolish enough to do manual labor let her. Didn't she know she could get hurt lifting and pushing those chairs around?? Plus doesn't Martha have people on payroll that take care of that kind of stuff - that is not something a Frenchie should be doing. Now if it were just giving direction and delegating the job I'd be right there acting as the Foreman.

    Franny, you better watch trying to climb over those seats in the car you could get hurt.

    I was so happy this morning because mom let us hang out with Sophie. I was sorry to say that she wanted nothing to do with me and went back into the bedroom with dad and took a nap on her bed. I thought she would want to play but I guess her leg is still sore. This is the first we were able to give her a good sniff in 2 weeks. I think she was afraid I would start running around and play too hard. Well maybe tomorrow she'll want to play with me.
    Anyway, I'm glad she is doing better.

    Can't wait to watch your moma's show today saw the previews on her blog, that's if the stupid olympics aren't on. Why do I have to watch ice dancing? Please that's not a sport I'd rather watch cooking or crafting. These olympics are like the snow around here - is it ever going away????

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I don’t blame you Sharkey, I don’t do much work around here either. The most work I do is keeping the squirrels out of the bird feeders. I don’t carry or fetch. When daddy throws the ball for me, I run and get it and then I keep it away from him. After chasing me for a while he gives up; now that’s my kind of fun. It’s warmer this morning so I’ll get to take my walk. After that I think I’ll just sit by the fence for a while.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

    PS Kirby has been “mooning” over the girl next door. (daddy)

  • Hello Ladies,
    Franny I can feel your pain--with no help from Sharkey. However, you have to cut her a little slak. I think she was celebrating her birthday just a little too much and tired from the entire event. Mom and I both wish we could be watching your Mama's show today, but once again Olympic stuff. I am proud to be an American, but we need our Martha fix. I saw G.K. was going to be on with you ladies.I bet when he is a big guy, Martha will leave him home to guard the place, and you ladies will have the entire spotlight again. Have a great day all.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • I keep seeing flashes of that gorgeous fabric on the chairs! Is it spring yet?

  • oh what kvatch! Sharkey not helping, surely you jest Franchesca? the photo tell the truth...LOL

  • Ha ha Basil you beat me to it. Sharkey is just in her "I-just-celebrated-my-birthday-&-I-won't-do-anything-I-don't-want-to" mode.

  • Hi Girl Friends, Ms Francesca, you are the super dog of your group and being thus, you usually wind up doing most of the important jobs there are. I'm sure all of your humans understand that, but your doggie brother and sister do not. They do whatever they want to do and you wind up doing what you feel is more important. I absolutely love all three of you and accept you for what you are. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+
