Modeling for Halloween

Posted by Francesca

Martha wanted all of her pooches at the TV show recently so that we could model some frightfully fun pet costumes for the PetSmart Halloween Costume Contest.   While we were there, we got to visit with all of our TV friends.  It is always so much fun being the center of attention!

Sharkey, are you as tired as I am?  I don't know how Martha does this everyday.  Sharkey?  Sharkey??

  • My my my how time flies. I remember when GK made his first appearance on MommyMartha's show he was carried in. Too big for that now. Picture #9 is very funny because MommyMartha is keeping an eagle eye on the you and Sharkey sitting on the stools making sure everything is OK.

    I wish you three were on the show more often. Even the dog show isn't enough. How about a one hour show devoted to all things Francesca, Sharkey, and GK? Have a fun, lovely weekend everyone! :smile:

  • Hello Ladies,
    I can hardly wait to view the show with the three of you on it. I can't believe how big G.K. is getting. When will that show be on, so Mom and I are sure to see it? It always scares me that you will fall off those stools, even though I know you are professionals. Be careful. Also, can you have your people let me know where Mom can get one of those great fleece t-shirt/sweatshirts you were wearing on your way home? Please!!! I am freezing at night, and Mom went to Petsmart yesterday to get me something just like what you were wearing and she said there was no Martha clothes for doggies for me and the other stuff was yucko. I got some treats and a new Martha eating dish that is cool. I want warmth. You all always look sooooo cool, they should always list where your wardrobe is from, just like they do Martha. Everyone have a good weekend.

    Zoe, how is T-bone healing and doing from the surgery?

    Take care all.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Good Morning Girls

    Love the costumes and I believe that show was on last week sometime wasn't it? I thought I saw a show with the 3 of you modeling your costumes.

    Hey Basil I'm with you I get nervous when the girls are on those stools I know I'd be scared I would fall off. Also, T-Bone is doing great thank you. He's back to chasing me around the house and having fun. You would never know he had surgery. I hear ya about the PetSmart clothes - yuk. If you find out where F & S get their outfits make sure you let us all know. It's so hard to find Frenchie outfits that fit properly and my mom can't sow a lick!!!

    So F & S any fun plans for the weekend? Mom is going to the Phillies game Saturday night so she is making me and Dad Steak and Kidney Pie - YUMMY. She won't eat it but makes it for Dad. You know he is a Brit they eat strange food ;)

    Well have a great weekend everyone be safe and GO PHILLIES!!!!!!!!

    Love Ya
    Zoe

  • Was that a devil bat costume you were wearing, Francesca? You looked HOT (hehe)! I am the proud new owner of one of Martha's pet food bowls, and I love it. It has a snap-on lid that Mom can put on to keep my food fresh between meals and snacks. It's great! Now, maybe you'll come over and dine with me? Ciao!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I know just how tiring the TV Show can be. I usually go to sleep before it is over too. Now some would say that a Chow Chow spends a lot of time sleeping, but that isn’t true. We are not sleeping at all. We close our eyes but we are not sleeping. You can tell by the movement of our ears. I know just what is going on around me most of the time. Glad to hear that T-Bone is doing good. Zoe, you need to learn to grow hair. That would keep you warm on these cool days. It’s the weekend again; seemed like a short week to me. Oh yeah, it was a short week. Have a good weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Francesca, Sharkey and GK: I love your costumes F&S. My momma and I love to watch Miss Martha's show every morning now on the Hallmark Channel. Momma says that the world stops for her when the show is on and mom will drop everything she is doing to watch it. She said thank God for retirement! I don't know about that cause my parents are always home now and they always need my attention.

    Zoe - Very glad that T-Bone made it through his surgery okay. I bet he is very glad to be home under your care.

    At last it is cooling off here on the coast of NC. Uncle George, who mows our lawn, will soon be putting the mower away for the season and I won't have to give my parents the "Warning, warning, mower man in my kingdom" bark.

    Well, have a great weekend everyone. The doctor in Greenville said that daddy needs a break from the visits so he won't have to go back till the middle of November.

    Now it is time for a morning nap. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Hi Fran ,Rocky here, you guys looked great in the costumes, Melly is sneezing over G.K. we shih tzus don't drool we sneeze! Had my senior exam yesterday,a little arthitis but everything else good ,waiting for the blood test but beware of the senior exam,thats all I'm saying or you guys would never go!!!your friend Rocky

  • On a serious note the puppy Lily still hasn't been returned.The girlfriend did not steal the dog because she loves her.More than likely she sold her on the street. She was taken from Wallingford Ct and possibly brought to waterbury Ct. If any one hears of a gold and white year old shih tzu being recently adopted ,her family misses her terribly. I'm a breeder and will help out anyone who bought this pup to replace her if they return her.Information will be on my web site Little Hooligan Shih Tzu .com soon.I'm very bad with computers so any help with passing this along will be so appreciated. Thanks Terri Salerno

  • very special...that's what you Frenchie pups are...oh and G.K. as well.
    I didn't get to see the show...you guys are just too cute.

    I was in a specialty doggie wear store in Whitefish Bay WI last weekend, and I could not believe all the doggie cloths...I'm going to check out PetSmart to see what they have and maybe get some Halloween costume for my grandogs.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., Are these great photos of when you were on Martha's TV show already to show your Halloween costumes?! That was a terrific show and we are waiting to see your next appearance, hopefully real soon and more often!!! I'm always amazed at how long you two girls sit on those stools. Thanks for sharing these wonderful blogs! Hope all of you have a great weekend. Even though it is getting colder here, I still love to take a long walk unless it is raining. Hope you have pleasant weather. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • You both look very comfortable in your costumes. We love to dress up too! Especially Hootie~He's quite the mad hatter!!

  • @Terri I don't have any friends in that area but I will do my part and post an update on my Facebook page and send out a Tweet linking to your website. I hope this can still have a happy ending.
