Feeling Weary

Posted by F&S

Being French Bulldogs that belong to Martha Stewart, we are naturally very driven and, as you know, incredibly hard workers.  We lead fascinating lives and we love telling you all about it in this blog.  But, we confess, sometimes we just feel weary.  Sorry if this posting causes you to yawn.

Oh, Franny, I know there's a lot to do around the farm, like helping with the boxwood burlapping and hanging holiday decorations, but I'm just feeling so darn sleepy!

However, I feel guilty, so I must get up!  I hope I'm not coming down with a cold!  A lot of people don't realize that dogs can get colds just like humans!

Well, Sharkey, the symptoms of a dog cold are similar to human colds.  Have you been sneezing or coughing?  Do you feel congested?  You do seem like you're feeling a bit run down.

You can often tell if a person has a fever by feeling his or her forehead.  Determining if a dog has a fever is more difficult, as our body temperature is naturally higher than humans!

It's very important, for both pups and people, to get lots of rest when you are sick.  I'll make sure your bed is nice and comfy.

Just a few more fluffs!  Hey, this fleece blanket is so soft!  It sure feels inviting.

Sharkey, maybe I have what you have because all of a sudden, I don't feel working either!

Well, Franny, now that I've gotten up and moved around a bit, I'm feeling much better!  Perhaps the rain today is causing my sluggish mood.  I think that sluggishness may be contagious!

You may be right about that Sharkey, because my eyelids are suddenly very heavy!

No worries, Franny.  We, Frenchies, are such proven hard workers and we deserve to act like dogs every once in a while!    Lazy is good, but it's a good thing Martha isn't around to hear me say that.

You silly, girls.  One thing's for sure - there will still be plenty of work tomorrow, but you'll have to do it without me, as I, the Grand Champion, will be off to another dog show!  Now let's all get down to some serious napping!

  • GK, your sweet face was just the perfect touch to end the girl's blog! Good luck with your show this weekend, and maybe they'll be rested up by the time you get back. Hope you girls have got all your gifts wrapped! I missed the donks on tv this week, but got to see them on the blog, thanks!

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    I am so very glad to see all of you resting. You are due for a long winter's nap. I have thought you have been working a bit too hard. Now rest up for a few days while the champion is on the road, and then you can all get back to work when you are rested. Rest well my good pals. Have a great weekend blogger buddies.
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    “Long winter’s nap,” good one Basil. I know one thing for sure, that’s one thing I am good at. My Daddy says that there is a time for everything: a time to work, a time to play and a time to rest. I like the last two of them but I do know that everyone has a “job” to do. During the winter I don’t get a bath as often as during the summer. Mommy doesn’t want me to catch a cold. Anyway I’m not outside as much and don’t get as dirty. I had one just two days ago and I still fell soft and fluffy. Yep, I’m an old softy. Have a good weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Nap-2-3-4! Nap-2-3-4! That's right girls and boy! Malcolm's orders! See ya tomorrow!

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., Sharkey, sometimes I feel kind of lazy, too especially when it so darn cold outside like it is right now. I like to go out but don't stay too long when it's freezing. Franny, you were so nice to check out Sharkey and help her feel better. GK, you commented extremely well today since you will be at another Dog Show this weekend and it's a good idea to be rested before you go again. I'm sure all three of you will be missing Martha now that she has traveled to Australia and will be gone for a few days. You are so lucky however because you have such wonderful caretakers at Bedford whenever she is away on a trip. Sure hope all of you buddies have a safe, wonderful weekend! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hey everybody!
    I just got up from a nap myself. The sun is going to come out here today and pep everyone up a bit!
    We had our first snow last night and Papa told Mimi that I wrote my name in the snow this morning! I didn't know I could do that!
    Have a great weekend all and good luck G.K.
    your pal

  • Hi girls rockey back again,we rested for ayear but i can understand how it's needed But It's play time again for me moms much better good to see everyone again and doing wellMy girl Nicole has been cooking with Marthas recipes She made a great pumpkin pie but martha must specify no graham cracker crust with pumpkin!

  • Ladies and G.K. you all work so hard on the farm already making sure everything's looking good and that your farm companions are doing well. "You deserve a break today" and the rest of the weekend. Besides, when the cat's away the mice will play. :wink:

    Best of luck this weekend G.K. Have a great, fun weekend everyone! :smile:

  • ..resting..what a fine idea, I must go do some...good luck G.K. this week-end..and all my dogger pals have a fun week-end..over and out..cora-belle

  • Hi Rocky great to see you back again. Sounds like your Mom is recovering nicely. Have a great weekend! :smile:

  • I hope your two are resting peacefully and that you will not get cold, this is the worst time of year to get one...when mommie delia befriended me I had a very bad cold, that's because I was starving and was so skinny, so now I am susceptible, but I'm taken care of and watched...Kitty =^..^=

    I can't wait for mommie delia to come home from Floria, I miss her kisses!

  • Hi there Franny and Sharky, I am a fan of your lovely blog and of your Martha. I am wondering if you would do me a HUGE favor? Could you tell your Martha to please do a segment on homemade Doggy Treats with beef or chicken base in them? It would really make me wag my tail, in fact I'm SQUIRREL, ops sorry, in fact Im almost drueling thinking of it. Your K-9 Friend,
    Sally B Shepherd
