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.
1 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!
2 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!
3 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.
4 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!
5 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.
6 Just a few more fluffs! Hey, this fleece blanket is so soft! It sure feels inviting.
7 Sharkey, maybe I have what you have because all of a sudden, I don't feel working either!
8 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!
9 You may be right about that Sharkey, because my eyelids are suddenly very heavy!
10 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.
11 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!
