Playground Fun!

Posted by F&S

We were driving with Uncle Carlos the other day doing some errands and at one stop we had to stay in the car.  That is fine to do when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold.  However, on this particular day, there was just too much temptation outside for us to stay put.

Gee, I like running errands with Uncle Carlos, but I don't really like being left in the car!  Especially when there's a playground right outside.

Girls!  Uncle Carlos said to stay in the car!  We should really wait here!  Girls?  Oh those silly Frenchies are always getting into mischief!

Wow, I haven't been to a playground in a long time.  While the name suggests this place is all about play, it's also a way for children to improve physical strength and coordination!

What should we go on first?  There are so many options here, Sharkey!

This bridge bounces as you walk over it, Francesca!  It's a fun way to help develop balance and tone core muscles.

I'm keeping look out for Uncle Carlos!  Besides, playgrounds are for kids and I'm not a kid anymore.  I'm two years old!

Quick, I see Uncle Carlos coming back from the store.  Girls, get back into the car! I don't want to get in trouble!

But G.K., Francesca and I aren't ready to leave the playground yet!

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    What a responsible little brother you are G.K. And to think almost yesterday the girls were frantic when you went out on the road to the neighbors and had to be brought home by the police. It is good you are a lookout for them, but never forget your roots where you began. I know you are a big celebrity with winning the Westminster Show, but remember what Cindy Lauper says, "Girls just want to have fun." Cut them a little slack big guy. Isn't Uncle Carlos just the best taking you all out with him on errands?

    I have some really big news---you know that leak problem since my surgery???? Well, I am getting stronger and stronger, and when Mom and Dad were at the hospital yesterday, I went 6 hours, no problemo!!!! I am getting stronger every day. I wish for snow though, as it is too soon for spring. I need some more relaxing days in front of the fire. We did see Ricky Racoon last night as we went to bed, forging for food. Have a great day!!!
    Love & licks,
    Basil

  • You are extremely cute and adorable mwah

  • Good Morning F & S

    GK where is your sense of adventure? Now that you are a show dog did you turn into Mr. Goodie Twoshoes? F & S that slide looks really fun :)

    I posted an update about mom last night it's still waiting for moderation. What exactly is moderation? Is moderation the thing that kept a few of my posts off last year and I got my paws smacked ;0 Moderation do you have a name so I can greet you properly?

    Mom didn't sleep much last night, she ate some dinner and didn't feel too good. The crazy woman did get up and leave the house this morning when it was still dark for work she said she is so behind she has to catch up. If people are sick why not stay in bed until you are better? I can't figure that one out.

    Well I'm heading back to bed I'm tired.

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    All I can say about your adventure in the playground is this; GK is a good little brother. Now if it were me in the car, I would have locked the doors and put the windows up so you would have been caught. After all, that’s what brothers do to sisters isn’t it? Basil, you are really doing good and that is really nice to hear. Not much happening around here except the weather. It’s colder now; down into the low 30’s last night. That’s my kind of weather. It’s good for naps in the sun. Speaking of which, I think I’ll do that now.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hey Everybody!
    I'd be with the girls on this one! I love the playground. I just discovered what it was last summer. Cudos to Uncle Carlos. He can be the entire Glue Squads Uncle for sure, he's the best!
    Hey Basil, so very glad to hear you are healing up.
    Zoe, take good care of you Mom today. They really like the attention we give.
    Have a great day all. Your Pal, Rebel

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K., This sure was a fun blog post to see today! How fun that all 3 of you got to go for a ride with Uncle Carlos! He sure is a special guy! That playground sure was a terrific place to play while Uncle Carlos was shopping and you girls had the most fun!! Mr. Ghenghis Khan, you sure did a great job protecting your sisters! I sure would love to be there with you! Nurse Zoe, you sure did a great job taking care of your mother! Sure hope she is feeling better real soon! Basil, you are amazing and I am so happy you are doing better every day! Cora-Belle, did you get any snow down in your area? We had cold wind & rain and it did snow a little last night! Sure hope all of you super buddies have a great day again today! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Good Morning Girls and GK.

    Boy, it looks like you girls had a great time at the park. And GK, you are such a good brother looking out for your sisters. I think I would love going to a park, but you know my mom.....nervous nilly having me around other dogs :)
    Basil, I am so glad to hear that you are doing better and getting stronger every day.
    Well off into the yard again. I just love playing outside plus Aunt Denise is here and I get into trouble when she comes. I just can't help myself chewing things and getting into the bucket of water.

    Have a great day everyone. Enjoy this great weather.

  • Oh Sharkey your playing with us! That first photo is with green leaves on trees, you can't fool an artist, they always notice things like this...no one likes watching movies with me because I notice things out of place...The play ground looked like fun, so why didn't GK go out there? mess up your fluffy fur? ;-)

    All the fur-friends here not feeling well, please get better...and for Zoe's mom, hope you are well now...I know how you feel being sick like that, I get food poisoning easily, especially eating out...darn :-(

    Sunshine this morning yeaaaa!!!! now I can finish my painting for a contest!

    Have a great day everyone!

  • Hello beautiful adventurous Frenchie girls!
    So glad you were able to get some exercise out in the playground. I take walking laps around a playground but am not allowed near it. Some issue with people not cleaning up after their dog buddies. GK you look wonderful! All ready for spring and looking out for the girls. Maybe they missed phys. ed.? Hope you continue to get well Basil. I am off to nap before pond side laps. Love, ABBY

  • Better skedaddle back to the car! Uncle Carlos might just leave without you.

    Hey, I say switch the monkey bars to 'donkey' bars. Yep, I try to sneak the word donk into every post! :)

    Soon the parks will be bustling with kids and squirrels! And kite flying...

    Speaking of kites...has there been any kites made with Sharkey, Frannie or G.K. likeness?

    Hmmmm

  • That playground looks like so much fun. With so much room on the farm, does MommyM have an area set up with fun equipment that the three of you can leap and run around and play tag with each other? That would be so much fun don't you think.

    Zoe I know you are a great job taking care of your Mom and you would have prescribed her staying at home. Basil Boy you are a miracle Frenchie you know that. I am so happy that you continue to get stronger and stronger each day. Everyone have a lovely day. :smile:

  • Hi everyone,
    Today is a sad day for Karen. It was three years ago today that there was an explosion at home and she lost some chows that she loved very very much. I was in Tennessee when it happened. It was a bad day. She has not been the same since that happened. But, we all try to make her smile. I was trying to cheer her up this morning before she left. I don't know where she went but she said she would be gone for a good part of the day.
    It was fun to see the girls at the park. Uncle Carlos was probably checking on the gang from inside the store. I don't think they pull too much over on him. hehehehehehe
    Glad Basil is doing so well. Keep on improving little buddy. Don't forget we are doing the half time show at the Super Bowl next year. We have to all get into shape. Zoe's mom should be better by then. Maybe even Zoe will be better by then, but then again, if she isn't chewing TP or eating doll heads, it would not be our precious Zoe. So, just keep doing what you do best girlfriend.
    Gotta go Glue Squad. Love ya all, humans and furry ones.
    Maddox

  • Little Lola checking in, Hey Frenchies and GK, nice to see you checking out your local park Won't be long before spring arrives and the park here will be filled with folks walking their little/big dears like us. The fresh smells of warmser air awaits us. Maybe it's none of my bees wax but do be sure and be good for Uncle Carlos. He loves you very much and would be so said if anything happened to one of you when out on an outing. GK, you seem pretty sensible... it must be hard keeping the girls in line. High Paws to all. Love LL

  • Karen, please try and have a good day..and think lots of good thoughts about your beloved chows..sorry there is nothing to say to make you feel better, except I am glad you are my friend and I love you,... Cora-belle, the cattledog and Kit-Bang the mangy cat p.s. Maddox please give Karen kisses for us, thanks.

  • Hey Maddox - give Karen a big Zoe lick and snort from me. I know she had a tough time today I feel so bad for her.

    Tell her I'm sending big Frenchie kisses and hugs her way.

    Love Zoe

  • Hi, Everybody!
    We are sending big sloppy Basset and Bullie kisses to you, Karen, we know it's a sad day for you, and hope Maddox gives you lots of kisses and cuddles today, too.
    Fergie thought that park looked way more fun than the dog park Mom takes us to sometimes(she says sometimes it's easier than worrying what Fergie will get into next in our yard). She loves to climb and jump on and off things-last week, she tried to climb a tree, and nearly did it, too!! Mom was laughing and worried Fergie would hurt herself all at the same time. I'm with G.K.-I watch out for Fergie, like you look out for the Frenchies, who apparently like to get into as much mischief as a certain Bull Terrier! But what's that about going to the neighbor's, and having the police bring you home?? Your mom must have had a fit-I know our mom freaks out if she doesn't know where we are every minute!
    Basil, glad to know you are getting stronger every day. Zoe, it's hard taking care of mom when she doesn't feel well, but that's our job-and they do like it when we fuss over them. Just don't make yourself sick with doll heads and TP!!
    Mom says it's bath time(again!!), and bed time soon. I sure will be glad when I get a break from these every day baths, no matter how cold it is outside. But I do feel a lot better, and smell WAY better now than I did! Everybody behave, and send good thoughts to Karen today!

    Your pals,
    Lily & Fergie
