Yes, I'll follow the director's orders and sit here tied to this tree for now, even though I spent ALL morning getting my fur to look just so!

Um...Franny?  I think there's a slight problem over there with G.K....

There's a giant spider on the tree he's tied to and it could be deadly!  We have to get G.K. out of there!

G.K., I want you to stay very calm.

Don't turn to look, but there's a GIANT SPIDER right overhead!  Steady, boy!

Well, who tied me up here, anyway?  Please, save me!!!

G.K., don't take this personally, but I just feel a bit more comfortable sitting over here.  Don't worry, though, Sharkey and I will come up with a spider strategy!

G.K., I'm trying to unbuckle your harness to free you, but you've got so much fur!

Sharkey, I'll try to untie the leash from the tree, but it's knotted too tightly.

Wait - I'll try another tactic.  Let me get into position first...

Well, mercy me!  We've been duped again by all of the Halloween shenanigans from the Halloween special.  This isn't a real spider, but one of Tim Murton's creations from his Twilight Zoo!

  • Yikes!...that is all I can say..over and out, cora-belle, the cattle dog

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    No one should feel they were fooled, that huge spider would scare anyone. You girls are real superwomen. Maybe you two should each be superwoman for Halloween. Wouldn't it be funny if one of you was Catwoman? Hehehe! LOL!!!! It was a great weekend here--lots of leaf and twig cleaning up. I had fun, don't know about Mom and Dad. We are gearing up for our first snow on Wednesday--supposed to be at least 6 inches. That is my checkup day. I hate driving in bad weather. It is much more fun to be in front of a fire. Have a great Monday and BOO!
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Good morning Franny and Sharkey and GK,
    You girls were brave trying to rescue GK. You didn't know the spider wasn't real at first. However, you know what happened the last time you untied him, he took off down the road. So, if you ever untie him again, and he takes off, grab the leash and run around a tree with it so he has to stop. I can't wait to watch the Halloween Special tonight. I bet it will be so much fun.
    Good luck at the doctor today Basil. I will send you nothing but good vibes and I will also be thinking about your mom driving in the snow. Tell her to drive slowly cause she has a very important passenger with her that we all love very much.
    Have a great day everyone.

  • Good Morning F & S

    G.K. you big baby how could you let a little spider freak you out? My brother T-Bone would have tried to eat the big bug. You need to man up and protect the girls and not be scared of a little bug.

    Basil please don't say the S word I'm dreading that stuff. Good luck with your check-up I'll be saying a prayer everything goes well.

    This weekend went by way too fast I didn't get to spend enough time with mom. She played golf on Saturday and then yesterday her and Dad drove to Washington to visit their new grandson. We had Super Nanny for the day. Thank goodness it was only a day trip but they got home late last night and now she is getting ready for work - I wish she would hit the lottery!

    Can't wait to watch Martha's special tonight !!

  • Boo morning all,
    Hey G.K., aren't those little girls funny? I bet you really knew the spider wasn't real! Ladies, love the sweaters. Mimi will have to head out to PetSmart & get me a knew one. We are going to have Indian Summer this week. Had our hard frost & now sunny warm days for this week.
    Basil, I told Mimi about the snow. She said not to worry, she'll be drive real careful while up in the mountains. Good luck at the vets today, buddy.
    Good day everyone...Rebel

  • What sweet photos and such loving concern for G.K :) ....and Thanks for the well wishes cora-bell, Sonya and DDR, that is so thoughtful.

    delia and a purr from Kitty =^..^=

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Well my Mommy and Daddy are ready for Halloween this year. Daddy was a subdivision captain for a food drive which feeds the hungry. It’s called “It’s Spooky to Be Hungry.” There was over a thousand pounds of food in my living room this weekend. They came to pick it up this morning. That’s enough food for 700 meals or more. What a blessing it is to give to something like that and help others who need help feeding their children. It’s a shame that most of these people work but don’t make enough money to make ends meet. Do something good for someone else today; you’ll sleep better tonight.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., All three of you sure do have fun there at Martha's beautiful farm don't you?!!! I love these photos and comments you gave us today and I knew that was a Twilight Zoo spider made by Tim Murton because I saw it on Martha's blog post today-still kind of scary! Love your photos today and all three of you look so cute!!! Can't wait to see the Halloween Special on Hallmark Channel tonight at 8PM! Hey Basil, sure hope your trip to the vet is good even with the snow and hope to God you do great! Hope everyone has a terrific day today! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • I'd love to know where you bought their sweaters? I'm having a terrible time finding a sweater that fits our frenchie. Thanks!

  • The sweaters are from the Martha Stewart line at PetSmart!

  • Franny & Sharkey, those new sweaters of yours are absolutely darling. They look very nice on you two. I love seeing the three of you playing around on the farm. MommyM has certainly put together a scary haunted house and graveyard. I don't know if I'd like to be living so close to the creepies like that. GK you seemed pretty calm considering that giant awful arachnid was just above you.

    Basil, good luck with your check up. Zoe's right, let's not bring up the "S" word right now OK? :lol:

  • Good for you for trying to protect your brother, Raven dear. And you look tres chic in your sweaters. I have one from your NowMama's line, too, from last year when I lived in cold, cold Providence and Boston. I like it very much and particularly am glad that it fits Frenchies so well, as we all know we are a little, well, very unique, and it can be challenging to find pret-a-porter clothing.
