We Frenchies are taking some time off for the holidays and we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite blog posts with you in the meantime.

Hey, G.K.  It's awfully snowy outside, again!  We should check on our pals, the donkeys and see how they're holding up.

Lucky that the snow hasn't stuck to this path yet.  However, at the rate this snow is falling, that will change soon.

Awww.... Look at those donks all huddled together in their little shack.

To get to the donkeys, we have to trek through the snow and it's so icy cold!  My little paws don't like it very much.  G.K.  with all of your thick fur, you seem to be holding up nicely.

Oh no, G.K. - Look at Rufus, Clive, and Billie!  They're so still!  I think they must be frozen!

Oh, Sharkey!  You are so silly at times.  I know for a fact that the donkeys are not frozen at all.

You see, they're just fine.  In fact, they don't mind winter one bit.

Hey you, donks!  Are you having fun out there?

Yes G.K!  We love trotting around in the snow.  First, we go this way.....

And then we turn and go this way.  In fact, we like to blaze trails through the snow all day long!

Do you mean to tell me that you're not freezing?

Well, you donkeys must have a strong constitution to be able to stay out here all day long!

What do you do, grow super winter fur or something?

G.K., not all hairy beasts are alike, are they?  We certainly have an advantage over shivering Sharkey.

Where she would normally stay and bark at us for, what seems an eternity, she's already headed back to the comfort of home.

It's good to see that you're in no hurry to leave, G.K.  Why don't you come into our paddock and we can all make some snow angels?

  • Good morning all,
    I remember this post. Must be because I just love the donkeys. I remember liking the coats the girls have on, too. G.K. looks so handsome in the snow. Wonder what he is up to on the holiday break?
    I found out today that I will be attending a New Year Eve party. I'm so excited. We'll be back in the car for a trip to friends for the weekend. They don't have any pets but they invited me to come along.
    So, Happy New Year everybody!
    Til next year.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Good morning everyone,
    These pictures are so beautiful. The donks in the snow all in a line, just awesome. I was thinking, we don't give enough credit to the people who help with the DW blog. The writing is top notch, the photography is spectacular and Franny, Sharkey and sometimes GK and the cats all think of interesting things to put on the blog. Kudos to the entire DW staff. I thank you for all the work you put into this blog. If it was up to me I would give you all a big fat bonus or at least a whole bunch of treats. Hehehehehe
    It was special to see my boy this morning. He looked handsome as always
    Ok Glue Squad members, how about if on Monday's blog, we all say what our New Year's resolutions are? I think that would be fun. And it would really be good for me cause I could do a lot of thinking. I could think about what each one of you said and guess how long it will be before you break your resolutions. Hehehehehehe. My bad
    Anyway, I have to go somewhere early this morning but I will be back later
    Let me know what you think about Monday being DW Resolution Day. It can be for critters and humans alike as long as the humans resolutions aren't that we be better behaved pets. Hehehehehehe
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Love me some Winter Time Donks! :)

    My area in New Hampshire got about 8 inches of snow.

    That's 8 inches too much for me!

    I'm beckoning Spring..... :)

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    I remember that post too. All that snow and you two girls were not happy with it at all. It was too cold for you. Now, GK and the donks were doing just fine; they love the snow. I guess it is because of the heavy inner fur next to their bodies keeping them warm. As I have said before, you girls need to learn to grow some hair. Hehehehehe For my New Years resolution I’ll just quit pulling the hair from my tail. That would make my Mommy very happy. I would score some points with my Daddy too. Have a good, and safe, weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello Ladies, G.K., and Glue Squad Buddies,
    I love these blasts from the past. You girls look so decked out in your jackets, and brother G.K. enjoying that snow. I know Gail loved seeing the donks again. They look like a mighty fine bunch. The snow doesn't seem to bother them. I think they like it. Maddox, Monday sounds great for resolution day. Mom is trying to explain what they are all about, so I should have something under my hat by then.
    Gail is sooooo lucky to get all that snow. I am waiting and waiting. Rebel, this sounds very fun to visit friends again for New Year's Eve. You have a lot of friends. I am still just sticking around the house, no walks yet, but the paw is doing better. You all have a GEM of a day and weekend. See ya Monday.
    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, Thank you so much for this delightful blog you shared again about that very snowy time at the farm! Loved seeing the donkeys, Sharkey and GK!!!!! Where the heck is Franny?! I really miss seeing her, too! GK, you and the donkeys handle that cold, snowy time extremely well! I'm like Sharkey and Franny and will go out in the snow but not stay very long! Sure hope you have a great weekend! Rebel, how nice that you get to go with Mom and Dad this weekend to visit friends! My Mom takes me lots of places and I have lots of fun! Maddox, you are so brilliant to come up with such great ideas for us to think about and do! I love you, Professor! Gail, so sorry you have so much snow! We don't have any yet, but are supposed to get sun the next few days! Sure hope all of the parents of our Glue Squad are feeling better and glad all of you take such good care of them! Have a wonderful weekend! Will check back later! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+
