We Modeled in a Fashion Show!

Posted by Francesca

Perhaps you saw Martha’s television show last Friday, when Sharkey and I were part of a canine fashion show.  It was all about winter wear for dogs.  Dogs, just like people, need coats and sweaters to keep them warm during harsh winter weather.  We’re sure happy that Martha dresses us so well.  Anyway, here are some photos taken at the show and if you would like to know where you can purchase any of these jackets, sweaters, and coats, just click here.

Francesca!  It was one thing to model our new clothes at home, but now we have to do it again here on TV?

Sharkey, you are forgetting that we are celebrities.  We have been on air hundreds of times and this is simply not a big deal!  So, snap out of it!

Now, which way to the set?  I always forget.

Well, well - It looks like G.K. gets to sit next to Martha during the fashion show.  I guess he doesn't have what it takes to be a TV model, just yet.

The jacket is quilted on the inside to keep the dog nice and warm and the waxed cotton exterior repels rain, snow, wind, and protects against thorns - great for the dog who loves to hike.

  • Hello Ladies,
    We watched the show last week and I was front and center. You two were the best models though. It was great seeing all the coats and sweaters. Mom is going to a different Petsmart today to try to get me a sweater like Sharkey's. The one close to us doesn't seem to have much of a selection. It looks like I will be having some rest time this weekend. Mom and Dad have office party stuff, so I'll just chill at home--hopefully with a new sweater.

    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I saw the fashion show last week. You two were great modeling those warm outfits. The real star of the show was GK of course. He really does get the attention; just like I do. When we are traveling, it’s hard for me to get a good walk in because everyone wants to touch my soft fur. Most are really surprised at how soft I am. I am really a “softy” under my guard hairs. No walk for me again this morning; have to wait until it warms up a little for Daddy. Have a good weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Francesca and Sharkey: Gosh, those coats are beautiful. I'm gonna tell momma that I want one too. I think the colors and patterns are beautiful. You two sure look snappy in your coats.

    Momma was busy yesterday getting the rest of the Christmas cards out and she said she had kitchen work to do too. She is busier now that she is retired than when she had to work. Thought I would be getting all of her free time and come to find out she doesn't have very much of that! Hmmmph!!

    Well, it is very cold here. In the teens and low 20's. No snow. We hardly ever get any snow on the coast.

    Momma wants to watch Miss Martha's show now so I have to go. Have a great weekend everyone. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., It was so much fun seeing all three of you on Martha's TV Show again last Friday. G.K. didn't need a coat to stay warm like you girls do so it was fun to see him sitting by Martha during the dog model session. All of the dogs looked great, but you girls stole the show-you did such a great job modeling Martha's dog coats available at PetSmart! Hope you all have a great weekend and stay warm. It's been so wet here that I hate going outside when it's raining 'cats and dogs!' LOL. We are having a dry day today before the possible flooding starts this weekend. Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hugh Jackman has just recently bought a puppy the same as you guys, I hope Martha asks them on, his puppy is 6 months old.

  • I loved seeing the three of you on the fashion show last week. Such are the demands on your time Sharkey being the celeb-pupster that you are. Of course Franny can't wait to show off her finery for the cameras. GK looked like he wanted to get down and play with all the dogs walking past him. MommyMartha so badly wants to dress GK up in doggie wear too. :lol

    Have a fun, warm weekend everyone! (unless you like it cold like the Chow Chows! :smile:

  • My Momma bought me the red coat. It keeps me nice & warm. The best part is that is fits under my carseat harness so I can stay good & warm when my Momma takes me for rides in the car.
