Arriving at Skylands With the Trailer

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

Do you remember last week when Sharkey and I went to Maine with Uncle Carlos?  Many of you readers expressed nervousness about road trips with Uncle Carlos, wondering about his intentions.  You are all so silly!  We got to Maine just fine and I even helped unload the trailer.  And obviously, since I’m blogging about the trip, we even made it back home safe and sound.

So here we are at Skylands with the trailer parked next to a building used for storage and the crew in Maine is unloading.

Uncle Carlos!  Please let me off the leash because I cannot watch them unload such a heavy thing as that copper pot!  What if they drop it?  Martha will be very unhappy.

I didn't realize that Sharkey was so nervous about these things.  These guys seem to know what they're doing.

Yes, they're using all the right equipment for moving.

  • Where, oh, where is Francesca???? Kind of a mystery her sudden and long term disappearance isn't it? Isn't she sad all alone wherever she is? Sharkey and GK must be lonely not knowing what happened to their other family member? It appears to me this has something to do with Francesca's "head bumping" Martha, and it is not "a good thing".

  • Sharkey if you weren't wearing your green coat, I wouldn't have been able to see you. So you two made it back home safely? That's two down and one to go. GK you can't blame us for speculating. After all, Uncle Carlos took Francesca on a trip and she still hasn't returned even though she allegedly posted a blog post the other day. :roll:

    It's the end of the third week since Francesca was banished from the Queendom and still no word of her possible return. This is very disheartening that we can't get an official word from the DW palace. Dudley Doo Right's Mom Jan was nice enough to post an update yesterday about Martha mentioning how Franny is recovering from Lyme Disease and that Sharkey misses her a lot. OK that's very nice but why leave us VERY LOYAL Daily Waggers here in the dark?

    Franny I'm praying for you that you do indeed recover from the Lyme Disease and don't take a mysterious "turn for the worse" and we never hear or see you again. :sad: Saying weekend prayers for Francesca!

  • G.K. I'm happy you made it back from Maine safe and sound. You wouldn't think our concerns were so silly if it was you that was left at the "Breeders" and not our little Franny.

    I had a horrible day yesterday, GROOMER - yes mom snuck that in on me with no warning. Came home with new bling on my ears. I must say I love the stick on earings, Sharkey you might want to check those out very cute :)

    So I think your moma needs to get her story straight. I was watching her show last night with mom (watching the pet fashion show which broke my heart because Franny wasn't there) and she now throws into the lists of excuses why Franny was shipped off that she might be thinking about showing her. Are you for real do you think anyone buys that? Lyme's disease, visiting her breeder now show dog??? I don't think so. Please, if you don't want Franny back at the farm let someone adopt her like my mom, we'll take good care of her.

    Sharkey you looked gorgeous as ever, mom said she is going to PetSmart this weekend. I'm hoping she comes home with something cute for Spring.

    I hope everyone has a nice weekend. Franny we all miss you here at the DW and I asked Dr. Pia for help, she saves dogs maybe she can save you too :)

  • When is Francesca coming home please?

  • Hi everyone,
    I am now in Maryland with my other friends, Gerry and Dick. They love when I come to see them and I like going to visit them. They were gracious emough to let me use their computer so I could post a comment. Zoe, you should get your mom to take you along to Pet Smart so you can show off your new bling. I am pretty new to the list and I am interested in knowing what type of breed everyone is that posts on a regular basis so I can sort of picture in my head what everyone looks like. Nice job son and Sharkey in "assisting" in moving some of Martha's things ro Skylands. Maybe Francesca's breeder could post a comment so everyone will know she is doing alright.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Glad to see the results of your road trip. I would have really liked to have been along with you two. Not a good day for me yesterday; had my annual physical check up. Everything went really good until someone began speaking quietly and came up behind me with something in their hand. When they grab your tail, watch ouuuttt. I guess the worst part was the “nail trim.” I was really good and didn’t bite any of them. They do have a cat there who just sits in front of me while they do the trim. Brave little critter I say. Hope all have a good weekend.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello All,
    G.K. you and Sharkey were quite the supervisors with the move of things. We knew you both made it home safely, but we were cautious when you headed out since our Franny has not returned. After seeing the Martha Show yesterday with Mom, and now having the third reason why Franny is at the breeders, it all became very clear to me what is probably going on. Now remember I dressed up as Sherlock Holmes for Halloween, and do believe I have a super slouth calling. You see, I bet since Mama Martha has babies on the brain, what with helping Alexis design her nursery for her grandbaby arriving any day now, that Mama Martha maybe sent one of our beloved leaders to the breeders for just that--breeding. You don't suppose there was a secret rendezvous of sorts set up for Franny and who? Well Waggers I think this is the closest we are getting to solving the Franny Mystery. PLEASE, PLEASE, oh someone let us know of what is going on with our dear Francesca. Anyway, I hope you all have a great weekend.
    FYI Daddy Maddox, I am a great Tiger Brindle Frenchie of 10 years in age, with alot of sinus and health issues, but going strong, and glad to have another male point of view in wag. LOL!!!!
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • OK I'm sorry but I have a hard time now with any stories without a reasonable explanation to us about Franny...we who are loyal fans of F & S (Sonya, Zoe, Basil, Kirby Bear, Gracyn, Dudley, Terrie and Aussie, just to name a few from past years) Not knowing is killing us, it's hard not to think the worst...Please can we have some sort of news to ease our worries?
    Tomorrow is my BD and it would be a gift to know about Franny...

    I pray all is well with Francesca, and I also pray for all those in the Earthquake affected area of Japan.

    Love and meeuww from, delia & Kitty

  • Wouldn't that be something, if Francesca had babies. wow. So Basil, a Tiger Brindle Frenchie. That saounds like a magnificent color. Sorry to hear about sinus issues. Glad to see that Kirby had a good check up at the vet. Nail trimming, no other words to describe it except it sucks. I got mine done every week when I was showing. Now that I am retired I want to grow daggers but I don't think I will be allowed to. Darn, darn, darn.

  • To the blogger: our concerns are not silly, but your comment reveals what you think of us faithful DW's. I have to agree with Zoe: the list of excuses will only keep growing as long as faithful DW's want an answer and confirmation of what happened to dear Franny. Martha, your guilt is showing. Come clean and tell us what happened.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., Hey, handsome G.K., you did a superb job making sure that Uncle Carlos and the Skylands crew did a great job unloading those terrific items in the trailer into the storage building at Skylands! Looks pretty cold and snowy there and I'll bet Sharkey was getting very cold waiting outside for the guys to do their job. I'll bet the two of you had a fun trip and glad you made it home safely. Hope all three of you have a wonderful weekend and I pray that sweet little Francesca will be back home with you very soon!!! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hey Maddox

    I'm out of the loop - is Martha going to be a grandma?

    I'm a 6 year old Black Frenchie with white markings on my chest, sort of in the form of a T for Terror ;) I'm cute as a button if I say so myself with a lot of attitude.

    Zoe

  • To All MY Daily Wag Friends -
    Now it's all making sense. Just did some research and a baby will be coming around the house. Franny got shipped out because she head butt - bit - looked mean - whatever and that type of behavior won't be acceptable if a baby is running around the place.

    Please don't leave Franny at the breeders let someone adopt her, I'll be more than happy to make sure she gets a good home.

    Zoe

  • Sorry Zoe, I don't know. I was just going on what Basil thinks is going on. My mom has been to Martha's house several times and she told me that Martha does love her animals very very much so I am sure that Martha must feel sad without Francesca too. She is traveling a lot so maybe the breeder volunteered to take Francesca till she is feeling better. Let's just hope that one day soon Francesca will be back home and everything will be good again.

  • Hi guys rocky here ,I would bet sharky and gk really miss franny, I do too. If you remember I live with my breeder so I can give the inside scoop on what happens there.Rest assured if her breeder took her back she is getting plenty of attention from her .I think the ones that come back mom loves extra! But as for her getting bred that takes a week at most and I think we all know how long lyme takes.If franny was beating sharky up that would be a reason for the return .So martha should just explain it .Sometimes two dogs just don't get along and it is for the best to separate them.Moms getting ready to start chemo so I will only pop in every now and then but we always read up on everyone .I hope basil is still doing well and Zoey so sorry to hear you went to the groomer I hate that. Maddox I am a shih tzu and live in a new kind of breeding Kennel we are cageless!Even the babies! Your friend Rocky
