Driving With Uncle Carlos

Posted by Francesca

Uncle Carlos came to visit yesterday.  It was a rainy day and we really wanted to get out of the house for a while.  He said that he would take us for a spin around the farm in the Kawasaki, one of our favorite things to do.  Come along for the ride!

Uncle Carlos?  Please hold on to me tightly.  You know me - I can hardly contain myself when I see a squirrel.

It's fun driving around saying hello to everyone - this is Gelbu Sherpa.

And we'll just stop here to say hello to Fernando.

We, Frenchies, are thinking about making Fernando another uncle.  We know he loves us just as much as uncle Carlos does.

Back in the Kawasaki - Good thing we have this rain shield option.  Carlos - let's put that pedal to the metal.  We want to go fast!

The world really zips by fast when speeding along in the Kawasaki!  I can hardly see the donkey's!

Do I need glasses or is this normal?

Even though it's blurry, I can still see red, juicy apples!  Maybe we should stop and pick some for Martha to press into cider.

  • Even on a rainy day, cruising around the farm on the Kawasaki looks like a lot of fun. Uncle Carlos is certainly a lucky guy. He gets to spend time with the three of you and now Fernando may get the honorary 'Uncle' title too.

    I see new sweaters that cater to the Frenchie body. Will they be available at Pet Smart soon? Very lovely.

  • Morning girls

    It rained at my house all day yesterday also and the forecast is for rain until Thursday. Why didn't you have your rain coats on? The ride in the Kawasaki sure looks fun.

    Dad just took T-Bone to the doctor for his surgery. He knew something was up because he didn't get his breakfast in fact none of us did. I guess that's only fair that we wait until he left. Poor guy he is going to have a sore little pecker later today. Mom said we all have to be calm and no rough play for a few days until his drain comes out. Sounds pretty gross to me.

    Maybe I'll ask mom to take me to PetSmart so I can buy him a get well present. I'm sure Martha has a cool toy he would like.

  • Um, Francesca & Sharkey, I thought you were valid drivers of the Kawasaki. Did you get your licenses suspended for some reason? Hmm...or did Martha see you speeding in the Kawasaki and ban you from driving it? C'mon, tell the truth. I know you love Uncle Carlos, but I also know how much you like to put paw to the metal and cruise around the farm! Where's the blog about when you were pulled over and ticketed by the police, eh girls? Hmm! Cider schmider! Bye!

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    That Kawasaki looks so much fun..even in the rain. Fernando is one lucky guy to be made an "uncle" like Carlos. He loves you all lots too. I hear you all have been getting rain back East. Not here in Colorado. It was 80 yesterday--a bit warm for this time of year. But it has been really good for the gardening. We picked apples and made applesauce yesterday. Yum!!! Apples are a favorite of mine. Mom and I are looking forward to watching your Mama Martha on Oprah today.

    Zoe, we are keeping T-Bone in our thoughts and prayers. Don't get him the get well present toy until the doctor clears him for play though. All his pain medicines might make him forget he shouldn't play and he could get himself into trouble.

    Have a great Tuesday all.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    It’s a little strange seeing you riding and not driving. Are you “grounded” like I get sometimes? This “grounding” thing doesn’t seem to work very well with me. I just go back and do the same thing over again. Remember Daddy, I’m just a dog and do what dogs do. Mommy and Daddy washed the trailer yesterday; guess we are going to be traveling soon. It’s fall and time to be moving. Like you, I like to ride.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • I see the rain we had moved east to you guys...it was refreshing for us...but as we know more will be coming, after all it is Fall.
    How nice, Uncle Carlos doing his F&S and GK duties...if you're getting another Uncle, will he be doing the same duties?

    Prayers for you T-Bone for a sucessful surgery and a quick recovery...and best wishes for Zoe

    Hey Zoe, Kitty and I pray for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery for T-Bone

  • Hi girls , We are keeping T -Bone in our prayers. I've been there and the no play is the worst. Sharkey and Fran ,you girls are so lucky, could you send Uncle Carlos over,I sure would like to get out ,but I can't possible get my feet wet! Will the rain ever end! Cherry

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., Sure looks like the 3 of you had a fabulous time riding around the farm in the Kawasaki with Uncle Carlos on that rainy day!!!! Did you pick any more apples for Martha?! I wish we had at least a gocart to use on rainy days! My Mom and I are anxiously waiting to see you on Martha's TV show on the Hallmark Channel in 2 hours today!!! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+ PS to Zoe- Our thoughts and prayers are continuing to be with T-Bone.
