Pumping Gas

Posted by Francesca

The other day, Laura Acuna, the housekeeper, needed to go to the store, so we piled into the car and drove her there.  However, the car was running low on gas and we had to pull into a gas station along the way.  Check this out!

So that's how you pump gas.  I'll just follow that white truck's lead and put that hose into the gas tank.

Sharkey, I'll push the buttons if you lift the nozzle.

Now clip that little latch on the handle and it will pump automatically.

Gas sure has a distinctive aroma.

Sharkey, did you know that you can improve gas mileage by simply keeping your tires properly inflated?

And always avoid lengthy engine idling. You should turn your engine off when you are delayed for more than a couple of minutes.

And always have your car tuned regularly.  An engine tune-up can improve car fuel economy by an average of 1 mile per gallon!

Well, let me tell you that Sharkey and I have enough 'gas' to power an entire fleet of SUVs!

We can't help it, but it's common knowledge that we Frenchies are a 'gassy' breed!

  • Did you surprise MommyMartha by picking up a hybrid SUV since you were out and about? I bet you and Sharkey needed a bath after hanging out on top of the fuel pumps.

    Now that your webisodes are out, did you two and GK get any autograph seekers while you pumping gas? I smell a new line of Frenchie/Chow Chow sunglasses bling around the corner. :smile:

  • Good Morning F & S

    Pumping gas??? We don't have to do that in New Jersey we have an attendant do that for us. I bark and try to attack the person the entire time through the window, I just want to let them know I'm in the car.

    I hear ya girlfriends when it comes to gas what is it with us Frenchies? I can clear an entire room with one of my little toots sometimes I even have to leave the room. I have to say that those Labs do a pretty good job letting loose as well. Dad said it was the dog food mom was feeding us so we switched from lamb to venison. It didn't work, the butt trumpets are still playing lots of tunes :)

    T-Bone has to go to the Doctor this morning he has a lump on his pee-pee'er thing. Doctor found it at his last examination but said it was just a small fatty cyst. Well mom said it is getting too big and she is concerned. You know my mom she freaks with this kind of stuff. So T-Bone gets to see Dr. Keefe, he is such a cutie.

    Enjoy your day :)

  • I admire how easily you guys are used as props, so willing and able you do what is asked of you...what awesome Frenchies!
    man I can't believe how much your unleaded gas is, ours is 40 cents less...maybe there is some good, living in the Midwest....and we have a GM SUV however ours is great on gas.
    Zoe, I hope T-Bone's lump on his 'you know what' will be taken care of, but a fatty cyst should be no problem.

  • Zoe, did you know that New Jersey is the only state that doesn't allow self-service gas stations? I don't know why. Francesca and Sharkey, do you think you could harness at least some of that Frenchie gas and put it into balloons or something eco-friendly and useful? You should be "green" Frenchies, after all. I'll bet the humans around you would appreciate the gesture from an aromatic standpoint. Enough said. Bye!

  • Hello Ladies,
    You certainly are the about town gals. Pumping gas??!! I hope after being near those smelly things you had a nice spa day and smell wonderous. I am surprised as green as your Mama is that she doesn't have a greener car. I bet she is waiting for the bugs to be worked out on them.

    Zoe, our thoughts and prayers will be going out for T-Bone. We know how important it is to get things addressed immediately. Keep us posted.

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Pumping gas; I know all about that. Daddy’s truck uses diesel fuel and he won’t let me pump that stuff. He says that the big trucks, the drivers, make such a mess on the ground he doesn’t want me to walk in it. The other night I was fast asleep and something grabbed my butt and yelled, “Tweet.” I jumped up and tried to grab it before it got away. My mommy thought it was so funny that she almost fell our of her chair laughing. She said that the “butt monster” was after me. I don’t know much about the “butt monster” but he doesn’t smell too good.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hey girls, Rocky here ,I don't know much about pumping gas, But I know about the gas Zoe is talking about , do you mean the gas daddy pumps out while sitting in his recliner? Thats when mommy gives me Beef and says the fight is on!Ihope all goes well with T-Bone My Mom Cherry had a lump removed and she's still wiggling her butt trying to get all the attention!your friend Rocky

  • Hi Girl Friends, You certainly are thoughtful girls to take Laura Acuna shopping and fill the SUV's gas tank for her! Is this the first time you've done that? I see that that gas was $3.09 a gallon. Luckily we got gas on Monday at Costco and it was $2.76 a gallon! I know what you mean about being 'gassy'. Whenever we go somewhere in my Mom's truck she always holds my tail down after she says 'here we go again Duddy'! I always tell her I'm sorry, but I can't help it! Have a great day. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+ PS Zoe, sure hope T-bone is OK. My prayers are with him. Jan&DDR

  • Sadly, the one type of gas you refer to runs in the family. Your four leggy father could clear a room, rest his soul.
