Looking for the Donkeys

Posted by F&S

It’s been a really hot summer and we haven’t we haven’t seen too much of our pals, the donkeys.  We look for them in their paddock, but they are rarely there.  We decided to get in the Kawasaki and track them down.

Hop aboard, Sharkey!  I think it's time we pay a visit to the donkeys!  Let's stop and pick them some apples along the way.

So you see any apples on this old tree?

Francesca, there are tons of apples!  It looks like it's going to be another bumper crop, like last year.

No, I don't see them in the paddock.  Betsy must have them in the stable, protecting them from this blazing hot sun.

I'll pick a few more apples and then we can surprise them in the cool stable.

Sharkey, can you drive this time?  I'm feeling a bit fatigued.  I think the heat is getting to me, too.

Of course, Franny.  I'm a better driver, anyway, if you don't mind me saying so!  You go way to fast around the curves.

Wow!  It really is cool in here with all of those fans blowing!

Betsy says we're kind of fat and we don't get too many treats.  We really appreciate this!

  • Good Morning F & S

    And YES it is a great morning. Our little Nicole was released from the hospital last night after 3 scary days at Childrens Hospital in Philadelphia and the eye specialist said she was fine. The cyst that was found in her brain is nothing serious they called it an incidental find and does not have to see him for 6 months - YAHOO!!!! I can't wait till she comes to visit she is going to get LOTS of kisses. Thank you everyone for your good wishes and prayers.

    Franny and Sharkey that was so nice of you to take the donkeys apples I'm sure you made their day. I love apples too and I especially love watermelon - YUMMY!!!

    So do the two of you understand all this stock market crap? My mom and dad were talking about it last night it sounds very complicated. Mom said they lost a lot of money the past week, I hope this doesn't cut into my fall clothes shopping and snacks. She was using the "F" bomb she was so mad, said this could have been avoided if the fools in Washington would get their heads out of their ass and work together. That must be really hard to do, I have a hard enough time chewing my back feet I can't imagine trying to get my head up my ass ;)

    Have a great day everyone!!!

  • How thoughtful of the two of you. You are just so SWEET.....
    Zoe, how is Nicole? I hope your little friend gets good results back from her tests.
    Well, I am off to Pa. this morning. Going to mom's house. Rhyder and Harley, my Chow relatives, wanted to come along with me this time. So, that will be fun.
    Well, I better get my little suitcase packed cause we are leaving soon.
    Have a great day.

  • Hello Ladies,
    I imagine it is still too hot for G.K. to go out adventuring with the two of you, so good job looking after the donkeys. We have a ton of apples as well. Just one tree however. Mom wishes she had a crew like you two to help pick and can. I am soooo glad little Nicole is going to be alright. Zoe I can understand the goings on about the stock market because my Dad was upset also over the weekend. He is due to retire October 28th and very worried about the money situation. I thought I would add a little spice into things to help keep their minds off their troubles. Focus on the Basil Man---he,he,he. You see yesterday I decided I was mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. That is the stupid low residue prescription food. I spit everything Mom gave me out. She was in a panic, because I have to have my meds, and the only way I get them is in this horrible food. She said I was being a brat. She had to call the doctor to see what else I could have to eat. He was not happy at all with me either. A little lamb mixed in is what I got out of the being a brat, and now I feel pretty bad. I made Mom cry even, so now I am trying to make it right and be extra good Basil today. It is starting to cool down a bit, and that I am grateful for. Oh, does anyone know how to make skunks go away. It is an every night thing, and I am afraid one of these days I will meet them head on. We have samuri squirrels this year, without Tasha to chase them away, they are eating the garden. Take care all and I will look forward to hearing about your buddies, Maddox.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Donkeys need treats too you know. I get plenty of treats at my house. I have found that my treats don’t make me fat; I run the excess fat off. Well this hot weather sure has taken the “fur” out of me. Mommy said I look really bad without that inner layer of fur. She said that my “private parts” are showing. Can’t wait until it cools down and my fur comes back; come on winter. Good to hear the good news Zoe, and I’m not talking about the stock market. I hear that they sell animals at the “stock” market; bears and bulls.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • It's so sweet of you two to take care of the "donkettes" with a basketful of apples. Poor donks, no trotting around to work off all of that delicious food.

    Sharkey, don't answer that question. How's GK handling this heat?

    Zoe, very happy to hear that little Nicole is doing better. That should help your Mom rest easier. She has a lot on her mind these days.

  • Oh I just love those donks...Clive, Billy, and Rufus look adorable! Franny and Sharkey, you guys are so sweet to get apples for them.

    Zoe good to hear that Nicole is out of the Hospital and I pray all will be well.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., OMG! You two girls are so great and thoughtful to give apple treats to your wonderful friends, the donkeys! I love seeing both of you drive the Kawasaki and pick the nice basket of apples! Sure glad that the donkeys are nice and cool in the stable. Thanks to Betsy, they will never get overheated. Are the horses in the stable, too so they can stay cool? You two girls do not look fat-you both look fabulous! Where is handsome G.K.? I suppose it's too hot for him outside, too. Sure would love to see him soon! Hey Zoe, sure happy to hear that sweet little Nicole is doing so much better! My prayers will continue as I thank Dear God for always helping all of our friends! Dear Basil, sure hope you are eating better food now and that your Mom isn't upset any more-take care! Hey Maddox, hope you, Rhyder, and Harley have fun at your Mom's home for a while! Sure hope everyone has a super, cool, healthy day today! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • ..nice of you to think of the donkers..but most cool you get to DRIVE around the farm, we cattle dogs just get to RIDE in the back of the Tundra..we are jealous!! Yo, Basil...skunks are bad guys..wear a flashing dog lite on your collar and they will zip off when they see you coming!!..Be happy that some people had money to lose in the stock market..a lot of poeple are not fortunate enough to invest..man-up!

  • Hooray the donks made an appearance!

    Thank you for that!

    The donks aren't fat at all! A little extra fluff is a 'Good Thing'!! :)
