Did you know that for 40 years, Dog Fancy has been an enduring fixture in the pet world and publishing industry and that they dedicate themselves to responsible pet ownership?  To commemorate the magazine’s 40th anniversary issue, whom did they call on?  Do you even need a single moment to think?

Sharkey!  Wake up and read.  And see what ad they ran with the story?

It's an ad for our PetSmart line of products.  That cute chicken is certainly chewy.  It's one of my faves.

Sharkey is so over this, but I'll never tire of all the glitz and glamor.  When's the next photo shoot?

You're right, Francesca.  Being of champion lineage, I can tell you, firstpaw, that the limelight is definitely the place to be.

  • Dear Ladies & G.K.,
    I am soooo excited to get the Dog Fancy Magazine when it reaches the stands. Sharkey, you need to enjoy the limelight a little more. I know, you would like to be out chasing squirrels. But just think of all the good your stardom does for our four legged kind. You three do so much for the dog world (and cat also). This was a complete surprise to me. Don't know where I was when you were shooting the photos. From what I can see, as always, you look marvelous. What is that place called where all the movie stars have their hand prints in cement somewhere in Hollywood? You three need a square with your paw prints, next to Mama Martha's hand prints. Have a great day you three stars you.

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Ha ha the first photo of you two looks like your about to have a "discussion" with each other. :lol: Another beautiful spread of the four of you. I can't wait to pick up a copy.

    Don't worry Sharkey, you know MommyMartha loves all three of you very much. Franny, you're always in the mood for a photo op. GK, you simply get more beautiful each day. :smile:

  • Good Morning F & S
    I'm a little late blogging this morning I was catching up on my beauty rest.

    So the front of Dog Fancy impressive. So how many dog biscuts did you make for that picture and interview? If I was your manager you know you would have made a bundle. I can't wait for my issue I'd better get mom on that right away.

    Thank God it is raining today we sure did need it after all the heat we've had. Mom made me go poop in the rain which I'm not happy about I only like to watch it from indoors.

    Sophie has to go see the Doctor today she has another lump on her front elbow. Mom is worried sick, so am I, we hope it isn't another cancer spot.
    Keep her in your prayers.

  • Hi everyone: I want momma to buy that magazine. She said she used to get the magazine many years ago. I want her to buy it really soon before the store runs out. To see all your pictures and read all about you would be terrific! Are all 3 of you getting into the "Star" life?

    Very hot here on the coast today. It did rain in the middle of the night, but no thunder and lightning to scare my parents. You know how scared they can get from a storm. They rely on me to keep them calm even though I'm terrified. I try to keep it from them.

    Time for an early morning nap. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Cool cover photo! G.K. is an inadvertent photo hog due to his size - in a year or two, he'll be so wide that Francesca and Sharkey won't even be in the picture! I guess we'll get to see flashes of Frenchie on the edges of group photos? Bye!

  • Zoe,
    Just wanted you and your family to know that we are keeping Sophie in our prayers. Try not to worry and keep cool.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    You two sure do get around. Another magazine story for you. You two, err three counting GK, are becoming so famous that your heads will be swelling any day. I know better than that; you don’t let fame go to your heads. I think of you three as dogs; and my friends. As a matter of fact, I have many friends on Facebook; Zoe is just one of them. As for me, I would rather just be with my family and take good care of them. Got to get in a nap now; have to wash the wheels on daddy’s truck. One day I’ll catch that dog, and when I do, I’ll jerk a knot in his tail.
    Catch you later, Kirby

  • @Zoe Sending good thoughts and prayers to Sophie and your family that she'll be alright.

  • Great photos....you guys are sooo into it!!!

    I just posted my "grandogs" Logan(redhead) and baby Ginger(blond)(both Labs) on Facebook...they are too cute

    Good thoughts and Prayers for Sophie and family...

  • Ooh...super nifty!

    May I have all of your "pawtographs"....

    gail :)

  • Hi Girl Friends & G.K., My Mom and I can hardly wait to get a copy of Dog Fancy with the cover photo of the three of you gorgeous dogs and your beautiful Martha. This preview blog about the magazine sure was fun to look at and we are sure the article will be absolutely great, too. How is the weather at the farm? It was real hot for a week here and now it is very cool. I'm sure Mom will take me for a walk more often now that it's cooler. Have fun. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+ PS Dear Zoe, My Mom and I are sending our thoughts and prayers to you and your family for dear Sophie. DDR

  • What an awesome cover of Dog Fancy. Can't wait to get this issue.

  • Hello darling daughter Francesca! You look very beautiful on the cover with your lovely two-leggy Mama. I am very proud of you and everything you have accomplished. Your amis Sharkey and G.K. look fantastic, too.

  • Those dogs are so stinkin cute! I'd totally want one if they could swim, but my life revolves around water. :(
