Meeting up With Our Friend, Lilly

Posted by F&S

After an exciting time of touring around Newport, Rhode Island, we dogs finally made it to the place where Martha was visiting.  It’s where our friend, Lilly, lives - a lovely and grand house with a sprawling green lawn overlooking the beautiful ocean.

Sharkey!  This way!  I think I smell the presence of another dog!

Hmmm, that's odd.  My sense of smell is so keen that I'm hardly ever wrong about things like this!

No, no, I'm not going to doubt myself.  There has to be another dog around here!  But where?

Hey!  Who are you, you orange fluff ball?  What are you doing on my porch!?

Lilly!  Hi!  It's me, Sharkey!  Don't you remember me?  I don't think you've met our brother, G.K.!  He's a champion show dog!

Why, it's so nice to see another long haired dog around here!  I'm a Samoyed.  My breed hails from Siberia, where we were used by reindeer herders to help with the animals and pull sleds.

It's quite all right if the three of you want to sniff me!  When people meet, they might shake hands.  We're all about sniffing!

There's so much you can tell about another dog by smelling them!  After a good smell, you three will probably be able to tell me what I had for breakfast!

Come along!  Martha and everyone else are lounging in the back yard.  I'll take you to them!

  • Good morning ladies, GK and Glue Squad,
    Seaweed is a beautiful place. You three get to go to some amazing places. You are very fortunate. I hope you had a good time with the Samoyed.
    Hey, let me tell you, there are big advantages of going back and forth between Karen and the Roberts. Besides getting to see different chows and people, I get to have two birthday parties. How kool is that. I am back home with Karen and she and Jean and the rest of the chows had a party for me too. It was great and I got a lot of new toys too.
    I forgot to mention that I was 5 on Saturday. Thank you again for all the birthday wishes you gave me and a special thanks to Cora-Belle for having a "I am gonna do as I want today for Maddox's birthday" I appreciate that very much.
    Well, I am going to go play with my new toys. It is raining so staying out on the deck is out of the question. Kirby knows what I mean about the rain.
    Hope everyone had a Basil CC day.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • You finally made it to the house! hooray! Lily looks like a great new friend!. I don't think you'll have a sun-shiny day today, do you?
    Mimi & Papa picked me up a day early from the kennel. The girls there take such good care of me, but I'm just a homebody. Papa took me outside for bedtime relief & there was this big old cat in the bushes! It made some awful noises & hissed at me & I said "Not on my watch" & I took off chasing the cat away. Don't worry Kitty, I wouldn't chase you! I think I was startled that there was a critter in the bushes! LOL.
    Hope you all had a great weekend, we White Sox fans sure did..
    To my pals in the East, that nor'easter sounds real scary, take care.
    Til tomorrow.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Good Morning F & S

    I'm sure your friend Lilly knew better then to sniff around a Frenchie butt, she could have lost her nose!! The gas and smells that come out of me are just toxic but I just can't help it. Lilly sure does have a very pretty house, lucky pup.

    I have to thank Mother Nature for sending that Nor'easter our way yesterday. I spent the entire day with mom. We baked cookies for dad and she made us dog cookie treats - YUM!! After that we went and laid in bed caught up on all her recorded shows as we listened to the hard rain. It was such a relaxing day I loved it :) Our pool is filled to the top Dad has to pump it down today we got a lot of rain which was very much needed.

    Happy Monday :)

  • Seaweed looks just like my house except different!!!! he he ;-) just kidding. Lilly certainly is good looking Samoyed, and that butt sniffing? well I'm glad humans don't have to do that...but then I have smelled humans from afar that I could tell you a lot about :-(

    Hey Rebel, Kitty can outrun you and climb trees and come back down...she chased one of the Robins out of the bushes yesterday, wish they would get a hint and build their nest's somewhere else...hmmmm now if I could teach her to chase the deer when they eat my flowers. :-)

    Sounds like Warrior Prince Basil is having a good R&R lately...makes my heart feel good. <3

  • Hello Ladies & G.K.,
    You lucky dogs you, staying at Lilly's house. What a beautiful place. Soon it will be when your Mama Martha is done with her show for the season and you get her to yourselves for the summer. I am sooo glad that Professor Maddox had a good birthday and that Rebel is home and relaxing. I am going to hit the pillows now as I was up lots last night. More good days than bad. Thanks to all of the Glue Squad and Daily Wag buddies for keeping me in their prayers and the positive thinking. Glad Zoe, that you and your Mom baked and relaxed too. You both needed that after all the company. Back to bed for Basil Boy. I will check in later.
    Love & licks,
    Warior Prince Basil

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    As I say often, “Every butt needs a good sniffing every once in a while.” Not too many other dogs are brave enough to sniff mine. I’ll bet you two girls would. My “smeller” is so good I don’t have to get real close when I sniff. How did we get on this subject anyway? Enough of this. The weekend was good and the weather has turned cooler. It was 50 degrees this morning and I had a quick nap in the sunshine before breakfast. I think I will have a few more today. It’s such a nice day outside.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hi Girl Friends &G.K.+Glue Squad, F,S,&GK, all three of you delightful friends of ours sure did have a fun time seeing beautiful Lily at the Seaweed home there in Newport! The weather sure did look nice and your photos look terrific-love the last one with Martha and her friends! How is your weather today? We have been watching it on TV and sure hope you didn't have a bad storm like back in late October! We were lucky to have a sunny, warm weekend here near Puget Sound and I got to go for 2 more long walks again! So nice to hear from all of you Glue Squaders again! Professor Maddox, 5 years old is great and parties must have been fun! Rebel, glad your weekend was good and you are back home again! Zoe, glad you had so much fun with Mom and Dad again! Delia, I sure would love to meet sweet Kitty-she sounds like a really fun kitty! Warrior Prince Basil, sure glad you are having some positive time especially with Mom and Dad! Doc Kirby, I am a sniffer especially of my back yard because we have raccoons, squirrels, a coyote, and who knows what else there every night! Sure hope all of you wonderful friends have another great day! I will check later to read comments from the rest of our Glue Squad! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Happy Manic Monday to Warrior Prince basil, Doc Kirby, Francesca, Sharkey, G.K., Birthday Boy Maddox, Cora belle and all the glue squad!!
    Seaweed looks beautiful- such a wonderfuk place by the ocean to sit out in the sunshine. Glad all the dogs had proper snif time to get acquainted. Being half frenchie I donot like any large dogs sniffing my butt. I get all riled up and my hair stands up on my back. Kitty will be proud that I like cats though and let Herman rub all over me.
    RAIN ALL SUNDAY, but it was sunny Saturday for Mom's race. Cokies in the kitchen sound like fun Zoe, much better than moles. Cora belle we think you are like Wonder woman. Glad you are having a good time with your new toys Maddox!! Congrats Rebel on the White Sox doing well. CHLOE hang in there you are almost done. Have to rest up for the late shift later at the vet clinic. I will bark at all the dogs in your honor Maddox. Off to dream about the sea shore.
    ZZZZZZZ- Abby frenchie pug

  • Sorry everyone, I had trouble typing and was sneezing so my spelling looks bad. lots of excitement when I bumped my nose and had a frenchie sneeze attack. Abby the pug frenchie

  • Hey all,
    Just got up from my long nap and had a gander at Martha's blog about her new cookbook. Apparently my nap was longer than I thought. When I read Mama Martha's blog, I saw your Mom Dudley gets on there also. Fill me in F & S and Dudley and anyone else---what is going on with the show in the fall? Oh, and Cora Belle, a.k.a superwoman, we figured out what the racoons are after at night---nightcrawlers. Can you all believe that, they are digging and eating nightcrawlers? Have a good rest of your Monday everyone.
    Love & licks,
    Warrior Prince Basil

  • Afternoon Girls, GK & Glue Squad, It looks like you all had a great time spending time with Lilly. It appears everyone enjoyed the visit, the sights of Newport and company. Maddox, sounds like you had a wonderful birthday party (s) with lots of treats & toys. Did you wear that goofy hat? hehe Warrior Prince Basil, hope you had a restful weekend. One more week of training class, I must say that my trainer is pleased :) and can see the difference in me since week 1. Mom's now thinking she will enroll me into intermediate classes. Oh boy!! With the rain we needed desperately yesterday & today, my outside time has been limited except to do business so my time inside is causing me to get into more trouble then Mom & Dad likes to see; and I do know that it's wrong, but what am I to do??? Guess you might say that I'm VERY curious about things. Someone closed that bathroom door again last night, oh wait, I think it was me. Dad found it closed completely this morning and I was on the other side, I'll have to learn at night not to move the door with my paw. Hope everyone had a great Monday.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow
    xoxo

  • It looks like a fun time for the three of you meeting your friend Lily. From quickly reading through everyone's posts it looks like a very solid weekend for the Glue Squad Gang! :smile:

  • Hi Sharkey, Francesca and G.K.,

    It looks like you are having loads of fun at Seaweed. Sharkey, you looked as if you were barking at Lilly...can't say as I blame you because new friends sometimes startle me and I bark, too! Have you found any squirrels at Seaweed?

    Have fun!

    XOXO
    Poco

  • Nice blog, thanks for sharing!

  • You all have had fun the whole day in such a beautiful season. Meeting friends, playing happily and having spending the pleasant day to the fullest.
