Picking Francesca up in Maryland

Posted by Sharkey

At long last!  It was time to bring Francesca back home.  As you all know by now, Franny wasn’t feeling well and she went to see the Frenchie specialist in Maryland.  After it was discovered that she had Lyme disease, the breeder wanted Franny to recuperate from that dreaded ailment with her.  Martha agreed and from all that I can tell, it was a good idea.  Franny is feeling so much better and it’s great to be one big happy family again!

Sharkey, this really does look like Merry Land!  We must be getting close to where Francesca has been recuperating.

The GPS says to turn in here.  This is quite a drive!

I wonder if Franny has been told that we're coming for her?  I'll just ease in quietly.

This is really a nice house and it looks like it's right on the water!

Smell that, G.K?  I just got a whiff of Francesca's unmistakable scent!  We're definitely in the right place.

Sharkey, I'm kind of nervous to ring the doorbell.  What if Francesca doesn't remember us?

This is an amazing house to stay in and the people here are also amazing.  They've taken very good care of me and I'm feeling really great.  Let me show you around.

As you can see, there is a lot of room to run around outside.

Just a few more moments to reflect on how lovely it is here.

Because you all look so similar and we might take the wrong Frenchie home!

  • How does one get four white Frencies to SMILE all at the same time? Wonderful picture.

  • ...And so the House of Stewart was once again whole. WELCOME HOME FRANCESCA!!! We here at the DW have missed you very much and have kept up a constant vigil until your safe return home. :wink:

    The Frenchie breeder certainly does have a beautiful home especially sitting on the water but like they say, there's no place like home. Sharkey you look so happy to see your sweet sister. GK, how funny was it to see so many Sharkey look-a-likes in one place.

    All is well again in DW Land. Now we can go back to having fun again. :smile:

  • Francesca - is it really you - WELCOME HOME!!! Thank the good Lord - oh I have a smile ear to ear :) And thank you Martha for letting Franny come back to her family. What a great way to start the week even if it's raining.

    So we had a taste of Spring this weekend I just loved sitting out on the lounge chair catching some rays. Mom was kind enough to bring out a cushion so I could really relax. I watched her work out in the yard I didn't feel like gardening this weekend.

    Mom made a trip to PetSmart and again she came home with no Martha products. The big guys needed new beds for the family room but they only had small ones so she had to purchase another brand. I'm really pissed they didn't have the windbreaker she said she'll order it online for me I'll remind her to do that today.

    Franny welcome home we all missed you so much!! And remember stay away from Jude and hang a DO NOT DISTURB sign on your bed ;)

  • For a minute there, I thought I had quintuple vision, Sharkey! White Frenchie heaven! I'm glad to see Francesca, and I hope everyone who dissed Martha is feeling properly humiliated! Welcome home, Frannie. You'd better check on what the cats have been doing to your toys in your absence. It isn't pretty. Bye!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    The weekend is over and things are getting back to normal around here. By normal I mean that Mommy and Daddy will be busy today. They don’t do much on the weekends; just rest. I see things are back to normal at your home also. It was so good for you, Sharkey and GK, to go to Maryland to pick up Franny. Did you let her drive back? I’ll bet you didn’t let GK drive. If he had been driving you would have taken the long way around. You know how Chow Chows like to explore. Speaking of which, time for my walk.
    Catch you later, Kirby.
    PS Welcome home Franny.

  • WELCOME HOME FRANCESCA!!!!!!
    I bet all the horses and other animals were so happy to see you again. I know, just from being on this blog for a short time, that you have very loyal friends that care about you very much and that says a lot about them. Enjoy the day.

  • Back at the farm, you must be so happy. You sure had a lot of Frenchies to play with while you were in Maryland. I hope G.K. and Sharkey did something special for you for your homecoming.

  • Welcome Home Franny,
    All our panic buttons can rest now that the gang picked you up. That breeder's place is very nice. I like the #12 photo of the little guy with Uncle Carlos. Don't you think Mama Martha should get him for Uncle Carlos and let Sharkey, Franny, and G.K. be his mentors? It is great to have you back home, Francesca. I think what worried us the most was the conflicting stories from Mama Martha herself about your whyabouts. I know you are happy to be home, but let Sharkey and G.K. do all the work for awhile and you just take it easy. We missed you and are glad the gang is all here again!!!
    Love & licks,
    Basil

All of you look so satisfied to be together again and it will be superb to see all three of you back at the farm with Martha again!!!! Francesca, you look very healthy and how great the Frenchie Specialists were able to cure you of that horrible Lyme disease! I want to thank them for all they did for you! I hope ALL of you at the farm can now continue to have a wonderful, healthy life together forever! Hope everyone has a great day today! Love, Dudley Do Right X)X)X)+

  • Welcome home Franny - I missed you - and a big hi to the other two sweeties, G.K. and Sharkey! Have lots of fun.

  • Hello Francesca: Welcome back to your true and forever home. I can hardly wait to see the pictures of you and Sharkey and GK and yes, even the kitties. All together and having a great time. I hope you get lots of snacks when you get home, and by the way...Did you get to bring any of those favorite toys from the breeder's house??? I sure hope so. Momma and daddy and I are sure glad to know that you are on your way home. It is sooooooo great.

    Yesterday, it was my daddy's 70th birthday and momma took him out for dinner at the Outback. I, of course, could not go with them but daddy brought a good sized chunk of his steak home and it was delicious! I didn't eat late at all cause momma said that seniors like to eat early! Daddy chopped up my steak and put it in my regular food. Yummy for sure.

    Well, it is cloudy but warm so no sunbath today. Oh well that is okay cause we are together and happy and healthy. That is what really matters.

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

  • Aw, you have made my day! Not even the snow in NH right now can get me down as Miss Franny Pants is home!

    So happy to hear you are back with your family and the donks of course.

    Missed ya
