Chop, Chop, Chop Over Bedford!

Posted by Francesca

We’ve finally had a bit of a winter thaw and playing outside has become pleasant again.  We dogs headed out the door for a little fun and adventure.  One thing’s for sure – you never know what you’ll find around the next corner or what you'll see flying overhead!

After so much down time indoors, a good frolic is in order, wouldn't you say, Francesca?

Say, what's that strange chopping noise coming from above?

It's heading towards the horses!  We must warn them!

Quick!  Into the battle trenches like our great-grandfathers did in the Battle of Verdun!  You know that one fought between the French and German armies in 1916.

He's circling around now!  Where will this Red Baron, that ace-of-aces fighter pilot, head next?

Oh no!  Now to the equipment shed!  Send a signal to the farm crew to take cover!

  • Happy Birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy 6th birthday sweet Sharkey, happy birthday to you!!!!! :smile:

    Nothing beats kicking off a big birthday weekend than patrolling the farm on the look out for invading choppers. Battle trenches? I think you two have cooped up indoors playing Call of Duty 3 a little too much. :lol: I guess the intrepid explorer GK was still out on his own expedition. Sharkey have a fab birthday. I hope you get lots of kisses and treats from your family. Have a great weekend everyone! :smile:

  • Francesca,

    What were the Police looking for? two naughty French bulldogs?

  • Happy Birthday Sharkey :)

    So tell me is there a party planned for tonight with lots of presents?

    I'm glad to hear it was the Police in the helicopter and not some pesky reporters looking to get a peek of Martha or any of you. We see a helicopter every once in a while usually taking someone to the Hospital.

    So I filled out the form for tickets to attend the Lap Dog Show. I hope mom and I get to attend maybe some of our other Daily Wag buddies could get tickets and we could finally all meet that would be so much fun.

    I was really looking forward to a nice long weekend with mom but I heard her telling Dad about a play she is seeing in NYC Sunday and plans on spending the night - SO NOT FAIR!!!! She better get her butt home early on Monday and spend some quality time with us kids.

    Have a great weekend everyone!!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    What are you two thinking? Those flying objects are sometimes a good thing. They may have spotted one of those coyotes and were just watching it. The police often do things like that you know. I don’t think they even saw you Sharkey; you blend in with the snow. Daddy says that a helicopter is a collection of loose parts flying in close formation. I haven’t seen one close up so I don’t know it that is true of not. Wow, it’s the weekend already. Have a good long weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello Ladies,
    Instead of Hawaii 5-0, you two could be Bedford 2-0. LOL!!! We live near the Federal Center, so I am quite used to the sound of helicopters. It is supposed to be a bit rainy today and perhaps snow coming soon. Mom is happy for her garden's good for spring, but not me. I am with you and for any adventure in the warm. How about those dogs from the Westminster Kennel Show on your Mama's show? Where were the Frenchies? She should have represented us at least. Have a great weekend all.
    Love and licks,
    Basil

  • It's your Birthday Sharkey??? well, have a grand day filled with Love!
    Hey I'm from Germany, and I hope we are friends by now with you Frenchies!
    And a note of interest, my father Baron Alexander von Meyer(his mother Georgianna "Ives" from Hartford, Connecticut)was good friends with the Red Baron, I have a one of a kind photograph of the two sitting in a Bi-plane...you can see it on one of my Squidoo lenses(shameless plug I know!)

    We are also having snow melt with a warm spell, can't wait for Spring, my favorite season...

    Again Happy Birthday Sharkey...and thanks to Sonya for mentioning it..

  • Hey there: Happy Birthday to you Sharkey. It would really be nice to go to your birthday party. I am sure there will be many of your friends there. How about inviting all those who write on this blog and we all can have snacks and give you presents too! Oh what fun that would be.

    Don't worry about the helicopter above you cause they are the good guys.

    It is nice and warm here on the coast of NC, kinda like a Spring day but it won't stay for long. Have a great weekend everyone.

    Time for a nap. Take care. See ya later. Love, Gracyn.

After a bit of major surgery.So thankyou everyone! Happy birthday sharkey! I'll bet your mom will have lots of toys for you! Your friend Rocky

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., HAPPY BIRTHDAY, beautiful, sweet Sharkey! Hope you and your family have a great day! This is another fun and very beautiful blog posting today of that thawing in your area. When your blog said Chop, Chop, Chop I thought maybe someone was cutting down some trees and then the helicopter showed up. We have planes and helicopters flying over our area all the time because we live close to SeaTac Airport. I'm used to the sound, but it gets so loud that it hurts my ears. Hope everyone has a great weekend! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Happy BD Sharkey!

  • Hope you had a lovely birthday, Sharkey! XOXO
    Love, Aunt Baby Favor
