Meet the Spokesdogs!

Posted by F&S

While G.K. was away showing quite successfully in Tennessee, Uncle Carlos kept us, Frenchies, quite busy going here and there.  One day, we visited a PetSmart to stock up on supplies and we decided that we should make ourselves the official spokesdogs for PetSmart.  It’s always an adventure there!

Look, it's G.K.!  He was just a little puppy when these photos were taken.  And just think, now he's a famous dog show champion!

Franny, it's good to see that there's a very nice selection of Martha Stewart Pets products here.  Franny?  What are you looking at?

Hi, Francesca and Sharkey!  I recognize you from your blog!  My owner is talking to Mercy and Miguel Fernandez from the Tuesday & Lisa Cat Rescue.  They find homes for rescued cats!

Hi kitties!  That's so amazing of these people to take you in and find you good homes.  I don't know what I'd do without my warm and cozy home.

Hi girls!  I read the Daily Wag everyday and love the Martha Stewart Pets products at Petsmart!  I want to be as famous as you two someday!  Why, by just sitting next to you two, people already want to shake my paw!

Now, the key to being a spokesdog is really showing how much you enjoy the product.  Take this dog bed, for example!  See how Sharkey and I squish our paws into it?  Very comfortable!

Francesca, look at that dog getting groomed.  Too bad we can't meet and greet him with a good sniff down.

Sharkey, I see an English bulldog leaving one of the pet training classes they offer at PetSmart.  Let's ask him how he liked it!

Why, hello, girls!  It's so amazing to meet you!  Yes, I was just taking a training class.  They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, but they're wrong!  Learning keeps our minds sharp!  And mine is like a tack!

Sharkey, there's so much to do in this store!  Our inspection is going to take longer than we thought!

  • Hello girls,
    I bet you had a blast at Pet Smart. I like going there too. The people that work there are real nice too. And naturally, we go directly to Martha's product line display as soon as we enter the store. That sure is nice of Uncle Carlos to take you for adventures all over the place.
    Well members of the Glue Squad, I see by the last post that we are getting lots of ideas for Rebel and Mimi for his birthdate. That is super. I sent Dr. Pia a little message about it too. She seems to be very interested in us so I thought she might like to join in on it. I was thinking and thinking till my brain was throwing sparks. I see some said he should celebrate the whole month of Jan. or Feb. for his birthday. While that is fine I still think it would be nice for him to have a really very special day too like we all do. So, I came up with February 23rd. The reason I selected that day is cause I wanted a day that is very important to dogs all over the world. That date is International Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day. Dogs all over the world would be eating biscuits that day for Rebel's birthday. How kool would that be? Well, I hope we stil get more dates for Rebel and Mimi to think about. We can keep sending them this week and hopefully Mimi and Rebel will give it some thought and let us know on Monday what they come up with. No matter what date they decide on, I think it will be very exciting for our little buddy to finally have an official birthdate. And whatever he chooses is official and binding cause the Glue Squad said so.
    Right? Right!
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello you two.
    Well, that's nice. I hope you two had a lot of fun!

    Sorry my message is way too short today. I may post later. Either way,

  • Oh, that's what was missing. I've already read about 'Uncle Carlos' a lot, but who is he and what does he look like?

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Another visit to PetSmart for you two. I don’t get to go into the store because I find spots I want to mark. Now I know that nobody wants a wet floor to walk on. When I wait in the car, I often get a treat which I just spit out. That’s my way of telling Mommy and Daddy that I am not happy with being left in the car. Daddy told me this morning that I would have to stay with him, while Mommy is away, or put on the “shade of shame.” I chose the former and here I am. I think I will just take a nap now.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Good Morning Girls and GK,

    You girls look great shopping at PetSmart. I did mention the other day mom took me there for the first time. Still waiting on the raincoat in my size :) . When I was there, there was a doggie day camp going on. About 20 ankle bitters in one room. Well they saw me walk by and all came rushing to the window barking and making so much noise. I guess they thought I was scared of them. I could take them out with one swoop of my paw. LOL. But it was fun. Next time I go mom said she is going to take a picture of me and send it to you girls. I don't think I will fit in the cart though.:)
    It is going to be another warm day here in NJ so mom is bringing out the bigger pail for me to get wet in. I just love the water.
    Well, I hope everyone has an awesome day!!!!!!

  • Good Morning F & S

    Don't you just love shopping! I'm hoping mom takes me to Jakes Dog House for some new spring outfits. I love to shop but hate to wear the clothing. I think there is a date with the groomer there I hope not :(

    Well today it's suppose to hit 75 degrees do you think Spring is really here? I'm afraid we might get one of those nasty March storms but I'm keeping my paws crossed that we don't.

    Yesterday the landscapers finished up and our property looks so nice. I love the taste of fresh mulch :) We also got all new woodchips along the back of the property. That is where us dogs do the poop thing makes it easy to pick up and leaves no mess behind, pick a poop take a few chips - nothing left.

    Well I'm off to work on the pool with dad. Have a great day everyone!

  • Hmm. well I only got the first two days of fun sunshine before we got heavy rain. I live in the Northwest, after all. Rain is expected. But after the rain dries up and it's sunny, the air feels, tastes, and smells fresh because of the rain. Mm...Mm!

    So, I talked to Mom about going to Petsmart. Hooray! I get to go this Sat. !

    :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

    I still like Gk <3 <----that's a heart

  • Franny and Sharkey you guys are so nice and friendly, I really love that! :-)

    What a pretty Frenchie that met you, love the black face and ear rimes...there certainly are a lot of nice products at PetSmart, I buy my grandogs their toys at that store.

    Kitty is outside, she is so happy with this weather...today will be another record high it should get to 80 degrees.

    Well I have to run again, doctor appointment! I ended up in Emergency last night, this is the second time since Xmas Eve, just wish I knew what's going on...I feel like I have a ball stuck in my throat, maybe it's related to my Barrett's...anyway it's not fun getting old :-(

    Till later!

    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • Frannie and Sharley, you ladies make the most wonderful spokes pups for PetSmart!

    It's wonderful how you know so much about the products and of course you always make friends wherever you go!

  • Hi Ladies!
    I love to go to PetSmart, too! Mimi wheels me right over to Martha's display. I got a really cool red coat on sale the last time we were there.
    Oh, Nadia, Uncle Carlos is really cute (according to Mimi).
    I am really humbled by all the birth date attention. You all have made great suggestions...this is going to take some thought! Mimi liked Zoe's Mom's idea. A shot of Jamison's can really smooth out the day..but enough of that. I like biscuits!
    In the meantime..Happy belated B-day wishes to our one and only Kitty and a Happy birthday to Abby, too!
    Do we have a new friend? or have I justed missed posts from Poco? Hi, Poco, welcome!
    The warm air is here & I'm so happy. The top is down on the car...lots of smells for the old nose!
    Have a great day everybody!
    Your Pal,
    Rebel

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K.+ Glue Squaders, WOW! You beautiful girls sure had fun visiting PerSmart with your buddy, Uncle Carlos!!! You sure did a nice job talking to the other doggies at that wonderful store! How nice that the owners are helping kitties get new loving homes! I agree with you and I absolutely love my home, also! We went shopping yesterday and I stayed in the truck and while I was there we had wind, rain, and snow and it was really cold! I only got to take my regular walk one time when the sun finally came out-winter is still here! Hope all of you buddies have a great day and I loved reading all of your comments again! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Well, thanks for answering about my uncle carlos question. we don't have much um..... nice weather up here in the northwest. :( :(
    So, mom said that we'll get to go to petsmart on Saturday! And I will be looking for a nice doggie raincoat. But I want a chew toy more. I have chew on the couches if nothing else!
    ( then boy am I going to get in trouble...)

    Hey, are you guys all old dogs? I'm only 1 and a half but how about you? 1 and a half in human years, that is. not quite sure what in dog years.

    See you soon!

  • ..No Petsmart around here where I live..we live in no mans land..National dog biscuit day..I must remember that...now that would be a good birthday date..Yikes, Delia, don't like hearing the E.R. words, hopefully you wll be getting better soon...Northwest weather today...the six inches of snow melting and cold and wet and generally miserable...envy you doggies in the sun..can't wait for it to warm up...last night I hit my head twice on the coffee table..once eating popcorn about knocked myself out..thought LUcinda and James attacked me..being blind I was confused for a bit..then it dawned on me they would never hurt me..I am a goofy old cattledog!...one should never shake their head hard around a piece of furniture...well, glue squaders i must take a snooze...over and out, Cora-belle

  • What a fun outing. Uncle Carlos does have the best field trips.

    Aw, you should have taken one of the cats home to Martha. What's one more mouth to feed! :)

    I too forgot how small GK was. Gee, just a drop of fur back then. Now he is a proud winner of many awards!

    What's next on your to do list with Uncle C?

  • Yes, Nadia, I am an old dog..will be 16 in May.. but that does not mean I would not defend my property and family and friends to the death..that is what cattledogs do regardless of age..Bluey, the cattledog lived to be 29 and herded cows everyday up till the last minute...he is my idol in the cattledog world...over and out..enough of my ramblings.off to the kitchen for a goodie and check in on Kit-Bang...cora-belle

  • Bluey... how interesting.

    Well, I've got lots to learn

    Jumps and Licks,
    Nadia

  • Sometimes when I go to PetSmart people think I am you, Raven Baby. I proudly tell them that I am your Mom. Not everyone believes me, but that's their problem. I like to look at the great big picture of you and Sharkey and GK and your MarthaMom, everyone looks so happy.

  • Francesca & Sharkey,

    It was so nice to meet you two at Pet Smart. I had a great time riding in the cart with you as well as posing in front of Martha's poster. I'm a little smaller than you two, but I make a great Frenchie friend. Hope to someday meet you again.

    Many, many licks...Lucy
