Wearing Orange

Posted by F&S

We Frenchies noticed that our favorite Uncle Carlos was wearing a brand new orange vest and we remembered that we, too, had a similar fashion.  We looked splendid driving around the farm together!

Yes, Uncle Carlos - We promise to sit right here while you talk to Martha on the phone.  We're happy that you pulled over to take the call.  Don't you just love how our vests all match?

  • The Daily Wag is so delightful. To whoever writes this--great job. It is so refreshing with all the difficult news we hear.

  • Hi everyone,
    Geez, am I messed up or what. I thought it was Sunday All day yesterday. That is why you did not see a post from me. My bad. You girls look stunning in your orange vests. And of course, Uncle Carlos and GK look very handsome.
    I am sorry that we will not be hearing from Zoe for a while But I am sure she will have a lot of stories to tell us when she comes back. Delia, Karen has some kind of card collection from the Vietnam war. They are sort of like baseball cards but they have all kinds of neat stuff on them like helicopters and different military people, stuff like that.
    Well all you maniacs, I am headed to the deck. We had beautiful weather for the past couple of days. Karen Had the lpuppies, Sequoia and Gibbs out to work with them yesterday. They are practicing for shows. Goofy Gibbs, he is losing his puppy coat. The handler, My friend Jan, was pulling it off of him and he must have thought it was snowing. He was trying to catch the fur balls as they were falling. Goofy goofy dog. Hehehehehe
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Good early morning ladies & G.K.
    I sure do love your orange jackets. They look so nice and warm. Sharkey, your really itchy back reminds me of how the mange snuck up on me or maybe a grass allergy? Do you need some of my Vetadryl?
    I've had my third skin scraping and no mites to be found! I'm so happy that I'm not so itchy anymore. I'm still on meds, getting more weekly shots but I'm down to 1 bath a week, whew....
    I missed yesterdays post, so I'm going back to see how all our friends are doing.
    Have a great day.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Sharkey I know how you feel when your back itches. You just have to scratch it no matter what. I’ve had another change of my food for a while. We’ll see how this works out; hope no more itching. I’ve brem hqf8ht xlm3. What the heck is going on here? It looks like someone needs his toenails trimmed again. Now how do I clear this up? Let’s see, nope that didn’t work. What if I, no better not do that; I’ll loose everything. Ok now, where was I? I remember now, I’ve been digging at my tail again and have to put the “cone of shame” on again. The medication doesn’t seem to be working like it usually does. Don’t you just hate it when that happens?
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello Girls & G.K.,
    It is nice to meet you G.K., Ruby girl here. I am adopted in my forever home and getting settled in. This Uncle Carlos guy looks like he loves all of you lots. Do you always color coordinate your outfits? That is really cooooool!!! Thanks Kirby for the boost that I will have good and bad days. Delia, Mom wishes she was millionare and could get that Dog Whisperer to help me. Yesterday was a bit of alien Ruby day after the vet's, but after 4 hours I snapped back to new Ruby. I did good in the car,but the vet needed 2 techs cause the shot scares me. No, no, no, Ruby would never bite, just squirm and jump. So I got the parvo/distemper booster and guess what is good news? I have gained 7 pounds, and am now 47 pounds. They think I will be about 55 in the end. I came home and went BA NER CO racing at doors and being scared after the vet's. Mom and Dad just tried to distract me and play and love, and after 4 hours I was on the couch resting. They said they will bring the mobile vet to the house in a month for the next booster shot. Until I have lived in my forever home for a loooong time, I agree this is best. Did any of you that were adopted go through this stuff? I am doing very well I think. I am glad you are back in the swing of things Professor Maddox. I look to all of you for my guidance---you are my Glue Squad. Have a "GEM" of a day.
    Love & licks,
    Ruby

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, You girls, Uncle Carlos, and GK look marvelous in these photos today! I am thrilled to see all 4 of you!!!! F&S, your vests sure do match Uncle Carlos' and GK, you fit right in!!!! Sorry your back was so itchy Sharkey, but nice of Uncle Carlos to clean your vest!! My Mom just saw some great photos of you girls and Uncle Carlos on Martha's blog this morning! We love your blog and Martha's, too!! Maddox, was so great to hear from you today and so glad you are OK! Rebel, sure hope you get completely better and you do sound good! Kirby, so sorry you have to put 'the cone of shame' on again! Hope you get better real soon! Cora-Belle, we are having lots of rain and wind up north from you! I hate to go outside sometimes and oops, I even peed in the house! Will check back later and hope you all have a great day! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Sharkey, Sharkey, Sharkey, what are you doing? Isn't this how you lost your pink sweater? Franny you are a real lady just sitting there like a primadonna ;-) Nice to see Uncle Carlos...hello to him!
    I have an orange jacket like your vests, I used it when riding through the woods.
    Lynn I didn't know you had a Vietnam collection...that's interesting, any connection to VN?
    Another warm day (60's) and then it's down hill! :-(
    I have not decorated yet, it's hard for me to get started...just too much to do.
    Kitty did not come home all night, hence I did not sleep well, even with a sleeping pill...she showed up this morning hungry. I wish she was an indoor cat it would make life so much easier.

    Have a grand day everyone!
    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • Hello Francesca, Wild Girl Sharkey, RUBY, Maddox, Kirby, Sweet Dudley and all my buddies-
    Nice orange vests Girls! Sharkey, we must be distant relatives because I always rub my back on the couch, roll on my back to itch it and get dirty when mom puts a nice warm vest on me. You both look styling and it was nice to see handsome G.K.
    Well Maddox. I thought yesterday was Sunday too and did not check in, apparently so did Rebel. Will have to read back and see what we missed.
    Jimmy almost freaked out when he read Kitty was AWOL last night.. started running all around talking about plane tickets and night goggles, so glad she is safely home!! Now he can go back to purring and watching the birds out the window.
    Sorry to hear your tail is itchy again Kirby, just think of it as the "cone of honor" that the tough dogs wear after wounds to allow them to heal. Like protective gear.
    Dudley, everyone messes up their training sometimes especially in wet weather. I did that Sunday night, mom was not amused.I think after all the cuddling last night all is cool. I have to stop forgetting to do everything late at night when we go out.
    RUBY TUESDAY girl, the vet can be your friend and its fun to let the techs give you cookies after a vaccination. They pet you and tell you how pretty you look if you let them. Two techs to restrain a happy young lab is pretty routine if you are active on the table. It was only your first time so no worries.
    Mom is all busy working on her new metal work jewelry so I am going to nap before work.
    Hugs, woofs and happy purrs- Abby and James Dean the persian cat

  • You gals and G.K. too are just as cute as ever! I need to check in here more often, especially if there're going to be fashion shows!

  • ..wow..seems orange vests are in..Lucinda has one, she wears when walking in the woods..yikes..hope she doesn't think I should have one of the stupid things!!..although, you frenchies look cute in yours, as a cattledog, I would look stupid and all the outdoor critters would laugh at me..the river in our front yard is a raging torrent..rain, rain go away!..must have snack..so all my dog buddies have a good day, love, Cora-Belle

  • ..oh forgot..good to see you G.K., you look as handsome as ever, if only I were younger..over and out, Cora-Belle

  • Oh oh, the 'itchy back' routine again Sharkey? :)

    Glad you didn't lose your vest.

    I think it's just darling you match Uncle "C". What a terrific team you make! And GK to round out the group.

    I will admit, it is sometimes hard to reach an itch. I like your idea Sharkey.

    I wonder if the donkey's watched you wiggle your itch away? hee hee
