Some of What We're Thankful For

Posted by Francesca

For the past few blogs, Dr. Pia has been talking a lot about adopted pets and being thankful.  She is also participating once again in Petside's yearly blog event, sharing great information with other bloggers about this year's chosen topic, adoption.  Although we Frenchies were neither rescued nor adopted, we know that many members of The Glue Squad were and we're grateful to all of their owners.  Reading Pia's blogs got us thinking about all that we're thankful for and we wanted to share some of that with you.

We are so thankful that Martha chose us to be her pets.  She takes such good care of us and we love her.  Plus, she gives us starring rolls in print, television, and videos, like this one from Countdown to Christmas on http://www.marthastewart.com/.

Martha also gave us a really great pal when G.K. came to live with us.

  • I am thankful that all the glue squad are my buddies, that includes glue squad people and kitties and any other critter...love, Cora-Belle

  • Dear F & S
    Yes, we need to be thankful for the good things in life. I am thankful that mummy found me in May 2009. I was lost from Dec 2008 or rather I escaped. During that brief period of 5 months, I was leashed and fed with white rice with soup. Yes I am thankful to be found and brough back home. xxx Sparkle.

  • And I'm thankful for Martha, the Daily Wag, Frannie and Sharkey and all the furry critters that live on the farm...

    You bring a smile to my face each and every day. :)

    Your blog is insightful, filled with knowledgeable information about the daily adventures in your world and the occasional scurrying after squirrels.

    Thank you!

  • Hello Everyone & my new Glue Squad Buddies,
    I am very, very, very, very, very thankful for everything. I am thankful for my forever home, for living in a castle that has it's own private toy store and biscuit factory. I am thankful for all the new Daily Wag friends and Glue Squad buddies. I am thakful for regular meals, treats, my vitamins and most of all, I am thankful for LOVE. I may not be a professor like Maddox or doc like Kirby, but I know LOVE. Love you all and have a "gem" of a day.

  • Hello Girls,
    I am very thankful for the Daily Wag and the staff that assists Francesca, Sharkey and GK to bring it to us and to show us all the wonderful pictures. It brought a great bunch of people and pets together and it helped to form lasting friendships. I am very thankful for being able to produce good quality, good tempered chows that are loved and adored by the people who take them into their homes and make them a part of their family. I am very thankful when any person shows any animal some sort of kindness, whether that be rescuing an animal, feeding a stray, trying to find a lost animal or just helping in some way to make the journey in life a little easier for the animals in this world. And I am very thakful for the chows that are a great part of my life. Whether they are living or passed on, they are a huge part of me and always will be.

  • Hi everyone,
    Geez, it seems like a very long time since we have talked. Anyway, since today seems to be thankful day, I am thakful for every Glue Squad member and you all know who you are. You are a big part of my world and I miss you when you don't post and I love hearing about your adventures. I am thakful to Karen and her mom Jean and to Gerry and Dick for letting me go back and forth between my two homes and for loving me as much as they do. But, what the heck, what can I say, I am a very handsome guy and very charismatic and, oh yeah, it is about what I am thankful for. Ok. I got off subject for a second but you know me when I start thinking about something, even if it is me I am thinking about. hehehehehehe
    I am thankful that Warrior Prince Basil is grinning from ear to ear because Lynn and her family have gotten a new puppy, Ruby and he knows that she is helping to bring happiness back into their lives just like he knows he did.
    You know, I am thinking again, and I think there is so much I am thankful for that if I type it all out, I will have sores on my pads from doing all that typing. So, I think I will just say I am very very very thankful for everything good in this world.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Good to have you back after the holidays. I guess you could say that I’m thankful for spending 11 years with my Mommy and Daddy. I have so many friends here too. I won’t attempt to name them because I may leave one out; now that would be bad. I’m looking forward to spending more time with my buddies here on the DW. When I look at GK, it’s kind of like looking in a mirror. The only thing I see different is I have been getting some white around my mouth. My age is telling on me. Have a great day all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Good morning ladies & G.K.,
    Well, I've been posting my thanks the last couple of days. I have a new one today. I'm thankful that Mimi & Papa have a lot of patience. I'm thankful that I did not get yelled at for going poo in the dining room this morning. I feel really awful about this. They feel bad 'cause they missed my "I gotta go out" signal. I can be rather vague sometimes.
    Well, you all have a great day. I wonder how Ruby is doing. I'll check in later to see.
    Til tomorrow
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, I am so very happy today to see your newest blog and to hear from more of our great Glue Squad! These photos are absolutely beautiful and F,S,&GK you look marvelous and I always love seeing all 3 of you together!!! You have the greatest people who take such good care of you and thoroughly love you and the other pets at Martha's farm! It is so great to see you with Martha, Laura Acuna, and Uncle Carlos who take such good care of all of you and love you to pieces! I loved hearing from Dr. Pia again and it's so great to see more and more animals being saved and adopted! Loved hearing from Cora-Belle, Rosa, Gail, Karen, Maddox, and Kirby this morning and your comments were great! Will check back later to hear from more of you buddies! Have a great day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Morning Girls, GK & Glue Squad, It's wonderful to see all of you and taking some terrific pictures all together. I'm thankful for my Mom & Dad, my forever home, my food, toys and the time spent trying to help me calm down, I try but I have had my moments lately. I'm thankful for the DW & Glue Squad buddies and the new friendships also; especially thankful for Ruby that she now has a loving home and a family who loves her very much.

    Wishing all of my friends a great day; Maddox, Ruby, Abby, James Dean, Cora Belle, Kirby Bear, Rebel, Dudley Do Right, Zoe, Kitty and all.

    Will check back later.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow

  • That was a lovely post, Raven Baby... I'm sorry, I need to start calling you Francesca, don't I? I'll try very hard to remember. This post made me realize how I am grateful for all the wonderful homes my babies went to. You hit the jackpot, dearest Francesca, but all of my little ones live in homes where they are loved and cherished and kept safe from the bad things that can happen to dogs, and that is the most special thing a Mom could hope for.
    I am also grateful for our new one, Roxy. I enjoy being a Mom and when I left FirstMama's house I got to help be a Mom to Demi and Millie who had lost their four leggy Mom, Chloe. But Demi is gone now, and Millie is much more independent. I was getting a little sad, not having anyone to dote upon. But Roxy is a little confused, not living with her FirstMamas anymore, so now I have someone who needs me to help her.
    I know I don't post here as often as some of the Glue Squad do, but I look forward everytime Mom says, "Let's go see what all our buddies are up to and see if your baby left a message today." So thank you to the people who help me stay in touch with my Raven Baby, er, sorry... Francesca... and all the people that love her from both near and afar!

  • Good Evening F & S and the Glue Squad

    Yes evening, mom has been working like crazy!

    F & S I'm thankful for the two of you because if you never started the DW there would be no Glue Squad. I'm thankful for all those people behind the DW who take the pictures and type and write stories for F & S. You all the best!!

    Well I have to get ready for TV tonight my favorite show in the whole world is on Charlie Brown Christmas :)

    Have a good night!
    Love
    Zoe

  • I'm thankful that mommie delia has joined the DW blog and allows me to be friends with everyone here. Francesca, Sharkey, G.K, all the Cats, Birds, Donkeys and Horses are my friends as well...I know mommie loves all the fur-friends here and her friends in the Glue Squad,including our dear Big-hearted Dr.Pia.
    I wonder if MS ever reads this blog? I bet she must know about us furry friends and the GS...
    Anyway,
    Love and rub to all mentioned above. :-)
