Marine Dogs?

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

On Martha’s blog today, she shares photos taken at Camp Lejeune, in North Carolina, when she met up with First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden and taped a very special Mother’s Day tribute, which will air on Sunday night on Hallmark Channel.  You may already know this but, Rock, who drives for Martha, is a Marine and he accompanied Martha on that trip.  Sharkey and I met up with Rock and here’s what happened.

Hi, Rock!  We saw you on Martha's blog today with the First Lady Michele Obama!  We didn't know you were a Marine.  Do you have some more photos to share with us?

Impressive!  So this was taken during one of your tours in Iraq.

And what a nice looking family!  You're with your son, Nicholas and your wife, Marisol enjoying a beautiful 4th of July on the Starrett rooftop.

Wow!  You proudly display the Marine insignia on your lapel.  You look so dignified and handsome in your Marine uniform on Martha's blog today.

Rock, I am very comforted knowing that you give so much of yourself to protect us.  We are extremely grateful to the brave men and women, who are serving this nation so well.

Rock, we want to be Marine's just like you!  Can you give us some training?

Say, Rock, is this the hand to paw combat training?

Oh, I get it!  You're just giving me a hug.  Does that mean I passed?  Am I now officially a Marine dog?

What?  I need to go to boot camp?  I guess it's not easy to become a Special Marine Canine!  With my nap schedule, I don't think that boot camp would fit in.

  • Good Morning F & S

    Sharkey I love the picture of you and Rock, he is a cutie :) We are so lucky to have men and woman like Rock to protect our country - Rock you ROCK!!!

    So what are you girls doing special for your mom on Sunday? Dad is taking me shopping for flowers, I think a few hanging baskets for the yard. I'll try and behave that day so mom can relax ;)

    Happy Mother's Day to all the moms of my friends at the Daily Wag.

  • Rock, Thank You for your service, it is greatly appreciate. We Honor our Veterans and servicemen/women...and thank you also for protecting MS.

    You have a lovely family Rock, God Bless You all...

    Martha's Fur-Friends you are lucky too... I enjoyed the photos.

    Happy Mother's Day to mommies everywhere!

  • Sharkey, Mom thinks photo #5 makes you look absolutely beatific, in regard to your appreciation of the Marines (she also chuckled, but I don't know why). Bye!

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    Sharkey and G.K. you look like you are really enjoying your time with Rock. We are very grateful for all he and the rest of the servicepeople do for our country. Mom is going to schedule the tv special to be taped immediately, so she doesn't miss it like the Easter one. Dad is making her beautiful planters for her sunflowers for Mother's Day. One is already completed and looks great. She is excited for her special weekend--lots going on. Dad and my people Uncle, won them tickets to a concert of a group called Moody Blues this weekend at Red Rocks. It is supposed to be beautiful, so Mom and Dad will have fun. Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms, and Zoe, no toilet paper mishaps on Mother's Day. Give her a break.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I think GK would make a good Marine. After all, Chow Chows were used by ancient armies of China for many years. Can you just see an army of 10,000 men with swords, spears and bows each man having his own Chow Chow. If the dog didn’t get you, then the man would. It’s in your blood GK but I agree with you on the nap time. We, Chow Chows, can not let anything come between us and our nap time. Happy Mom’s Day all and have a good weekend.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hey Basil
    I've moved on from toilet paper right now I'm really loving this organic potting soil. Mom caught me in the act and has a picture of me helping myself to a little snack ;)

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., Hey G.K., it's so great to see you again and even better to see you with handsome Marine Rock!! You are getting to be such a handsome fellow yourself and for a minute there I thought I was seeing Paw Paw or Maddox your two handsome relatives!!! You and Sharkey sure must have had fun with Rock! Being a Marine is very special and all of you are so lucky to have Rock as Martha's driver and your friend! Where was Francesca? Oh, I bet she was out doing something special herself! Hope everyone has a terrific weekend and be sure to do something kind for your Mothers! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

    1,2,3,4, 1, 2, 3, 4!!!'

    There you go, a little cadence for your doggie boot camp. :lol: Thank you very much for your service Staff Sergent Pereira. GK, those photos of you and Sharkey with the SSgt are so adorable. Where was Francesca during this training? Uh-oh, someone's gone AWOL. :wink:

    Happy Mother's Day to all the Fur-Mommies on the DW and everyone have a great weekend! :smile:
