What's Bright Red and Fuzzy all Over?

Posted by Sharkey

The other day when Franny and I were outside, I spied something bright red sitting out in one of the fields.  Of course, being a most curious Frenchie, I trotted out to see what it was.  I was very surprised to find one of the new items from Martha’s PetSmart line.  Please be patient, dear canine friends, because these great products will soon be available at PetSmart!

What is that bright red object that I see in the field?  Maybe it's a cardinal or even a red fox.

Why, it appears to be a package of balls!

The label says 'Martha Stewart Pets.'  I guess this is something from Martha's new PetSmart Line, which, by the way, is really great and will be available soon at PetSmart!

Franny, don't just stand there.  Get ready to catch!

Franny, you get the one on the right and I'll go for the ball on the left.

I guess you missed it, Franny.

I missed mine, too!  We're not very good outfielders.

Well, this playing catch business isn't as easy as some dogs make it look.

Instead of playing catch, maybe we should focus on poise.  Why don't we try balancing the ball on our backs?

Franny, balancing a round ball is very challenging and you are really good at it!

    I'm not very impressed with your ball skills but you do balance the ball on your back pretty good. I love to play ball however I prefer those soft balls the kids use in the pool. They fill up with water then you squeeze it out and it makes such a fun ball. I like when they have a catch in the pool and one misses and it lands out of the pool I'm the go fetch dog but I never give it back I run away :)

    Well very exciting news I got NEW BLING!!!! Yes went to the groomer and came home with ear rings. Well they weren't rings they were cute diamond stick on jewels I just love them!! It was worth the trip to the groomer. I was also very happy because this time we filed my nails no cutting and I'm so pleased with how they came out. I posted pictures on my facebook page of the new bling if you care to check it out just let me know.

    Oh and that Super Nanny made a comment to mom that you shouldn't bring attention to the largest part of your body meaning my ears. I think I have great looking ears so what was that remark all about?? Wait till her next visit I'll get even. I think I'll just sit next to her and look all cute and innocent then let loose one of those silent but deadly forms of gas I'm known for - ha - I'll bring tears to the womans eyes she won't know what hit her :)

    What a beautiful morning, nice and cool no humidity now if I can just convince mom not to go to work. Oh this weekend is father's day make sure you do something extra special for your dad or the man who is the father figure in your life. We're making dad a special dinner on Sunday.

    Have a great weekend everyone and Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there.

  • Hello Ladies,
    Glad to see there is some progress on the line of pet things from Martha Stewart at Petsmart. The balls look very nice, but I am more interested in the apparrel, i.e. coats for Frenchies. I am not much into fetching balls, but Tasha (since she is a lab) loves it. She could fetch and play frezbie all day. Zoe, I am with you on being proud of your ears. Mom says I have great self esteem as people often make fun of my ears. They are just jealous of my handsomeness. I am one handsome dude. I like bling--well, the male kind--you know, leather jackets with fancy buckles. It looks to be a nice Father's Day weekend. Have a good one everyone.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    JUGGLING; now that’s one thing I would like to see Sharkey. As I’ve said before, I’m not into the “chase” thing much any more. Well yesterday it was cooler; only reaching 96. It will be hotter again today. I didn’t like those four days of over 100. One day it was 104. I’m glad that the AC was working and kept me cool. All of this heat is making for some really big thunder storms. My momma had to refill my meds again. The weekend is upon us; have a good weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Juggling? Hmm...I say, where are the croquet mallets? For paw/eye coordination, I think G.K. would probably rank the best, though. I know Frenchies are a little far-sighted, anyway. Playing fetch is for the birds...or for the cats...hahaha. Bye.

  • I can't wait to see the new PetSmart line. Hmmm, you two don't seem to be the catch a ball kind are you. What about little brother GK, Does he run around and play catch too?

    The farm looks so beautiful. How wonderful it must be to have such a beautiful place to play.

    Everyone have a beautiful, fun weekend and a Happy Father's Day. :smile:

  • Hi Francesca and Sharkey: Gosh, you two don't catch those balls too well. Neither do I, but when I get a hold of one I run and run and run with it. Momma and daddy try to catch me but fail every time. They wait till I drop it. Momma says it's cause she and daddy are getting old. I don't know about that cause I'm not old. Can't wait for all the new stuff coming to Pet Smart. I know I'll get lots of new toys.

    Hey Zoe - I bet you look really great with your ear-bling. Wonder if momma will get me some. Hmmmmmmm.

    Well, it is time for my dinner. Daddy went to Pet Smart and bought me some new cookies and my regular food. I'm hungry! It was very hot today. Love the air conditioning in my house.

    Happy Father's Day and have a great weekend everyone. Stay cool and don't forget to dance, dance, dance. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Oh no, circus dogs?! now you work the juggling and balance balls...what's next, riding an Elephant?

    OK, they are cute red PetSmart balls with MS name...way to go!

  • Hi Girl Friends, It's fun to see how you two play with balls. I've never played with one before and now I kind of know what ball playing is sort of about. Maybe when my Mom takes me to PetSmart to get some of Martha's other items, I can talk her into getting some balls to learn more how to play with them. Maybe if G.K. came out to play ball with you he might be able to show you how it's done. I'm sure he could keep a ball on his back because it's so fuzzy and wouldn't fall off easily. Have a great weekend and keep busy while Martha is gone. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+
