Gifts From Our Fan Club

Posted by Francesca

Being celebrity dogs, we, of course, have a wonderful and loyal following.  And sometimes, we even get the greatest gifts from our fans.  We receive beautiful paintings, wall clocks, toys, snacks, and most recently, dishes.  But, Sharkey had a little bone to pick with our latest gift.

Look at this beautiful plate.  Do you see that it's decorated with Frenchies?

And not only were we sent a plate, but a soap dish, as well!

I wonder which sink this dish will grace?

Where do you think these dishes came from?  I don't see a note, or anything!

Well, this clever person purchased a plain soap dish from West Elm and proceeded to make this amazing creation.

And the plate is Pillivuyt, of course! - A very fine porcelain from France!  How fitting for us, French bulldogs!

But Francesca, there's something so terribly wrong with these gifts.

Instead of using a white plate, why didn't they choose a black one and decorate it with white Frenchies, instead?  I feel kind of left out.

Sharkey, I see your point - I'm a brindle and you are a creamy fawn.  Maybe, just maybe, the people who sent these gifts will read this blog and take the hint!

I'm glad you understand, Francesca.  It helps to have your support.

  • Now Sharkey I understand your dismay but at least the little Frenchie on the right is you. Poor GK didn't even make the grade! Of course you pulling the wounded doggie look in photos 11 and 12 makes one get on their knees and beg your forgiveness for the slight. :lol:

    You look good Franny. I've been concerned that maybe that head boppin' with MommyM made have made you a bit woozy.

  • Silhouettes are elegant and don't necessarily reflect the true color of the subject, sweet Sharkey. Let's not look the gift Frenchie in the mouth. Love ya, mean it...Jennifer the Beagle

  • Sharkey, you are too charming and beautiful to be a picture on a dinner plate! After all, you are a *fashion* plate! Come and see me, o beautiful creamy fawn! Hugs and kisses, sweetie!

  • Hello Ladies,
    Sharkey, Sharkey, Sharkey, I understand where you are coming from. It is very thoughtful of whoever sent the Frenchie plates with Franny on them, but you and G.K. need your identity shown also. I understand this so well because, when I came to live here, Mom and Dad had only had Black Labs. They have many limited edition prints on the wall with Black Labs, but no French Bulldog Tiger Brindles like me. Mom has taken many photos of this handsome dude, but still no limited edition prints of Frenchies. She says there is no such thing, but I am waiting as you are for the dishes. Our day will come. If any of you know of limited edition prints of Frenchies please let me know. We will show Mom. Have a good Wednesday.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    What a wonderful gift. Someone thought enough of you two to put you on those two items. I know that they read your “blogg” and will realize their mistake. Until then Sharkey, just keep your head up and move on. Life is not always going to be what you want. Take me for example. It was raining this morning and I didn’t get go take my walk. I am a little sad, but by lunch time I’ll be over it. Naps cure a lot of ills.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., This is kind of an unusual blog post, today. It was nice of a fan to send those nice porcelain products to you, but maybe after reading your blog they will make new ones resembling Sharkey-Barkey, also. How nice of you Francesca to care so much about how sister Sharkey feels about being left out. You are both very caring animals who care very deeply about all of the animals there at the farm. How did G.K. feel about this? Sure hope you have a great day and cheer up real soon! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Sharkey don't feel bad these plates are not of black frenchies, they are silhouettes of frenchies. So I'm sure they are meant to represent you and Frannie in silhouette form. Very cool indeed.

  • What lovely gifts and images...My goodness Sharkey! You ARE in these images as a silhouette, as well as Francesca...you surprise me you didn't see that!

    Got to say I love the photos of today...very cute!

  • My dear ladies,
    I am a black and tan chihuahua. I think we could all have great fun together. My dear Sharkey, be patient. It is a great virtue. You such a cutie pie!
