Paying a Visit to the Donkeys

Posted by F&S

It occurred to us that we Frenchies hadn't visited the donkeys in quite some time.  It was snowing yesterday, but we got on our warm coats and headed down to the donkey paddock.

Come on, Sharkey!  Let's go and visit the donks.

We're nearly at their paddock.

Here it is, but where are they?

There's just no sign of them.

And they're not in their little run in.

Sharkey, there's nothing here but a lot of donkey poop!

There's only one other place where they can be.  Let's go into the stable.

It seems like every time we come here the horses are being groomed.  That can only mean they're being well-cared for.

And sure enough!  The donks are in their stall.  Let's go outside again and talk to them from there.  We'll have more room and it will be less noisy since the horse vacuum is running.

Clive, we were looking for you outside in your paddock, but we're happy to find you in your cozy stall.  It's been snowing like crazy today!

Sharkey, how nice of you to visit.  Now that it's March, the novelty of snow has worn off and since it has been snowing all day, we spent the morning outdoors and were brought inside earlier than normal.

Francesca, I'm so happy to see you out and about that I feel like giving you a big fat kiss!  Come a bit closer and let old Billie plant one on your adorable little face.  Come on, don't be shy!

  • Hello Girls, Clive, Rufus, Billie & Glue Squad Buddies,
    TGIF!!! Finally, it is here and it seems as though it was a long week---waiting for my snow weekend. I am so happy to meet you donks up close. I am still seeing the animals and sights on the farm. You 3 look very friendly with the girls, and Martha and the gang take such wonderful care of you. Snow will start here tonight, now 8-14 inches. My walk went superbly yesterday--an A, Mom got an A-...you don't want to know why. And today she and I will be in quarantine in a bedroom for 4 hours during the DirectTV guy's visit. Nap catch up time for Ruby. I am worried about Kirby today. I hope his Dad lets us know how things go. My birthday season has started. Mom says that is o.k. when you are celebrating two birthdays. Sara sent me a package with all sorts of fun stuff and a couple weeks ago treats arrived. Two weeks from today I get 2 cakes and 2 parties, ya think? I think it should be a weekend long party. What am I talking about...every day is a party for me!!! Have a GEM of a weekend. I will butt vroom in the snow enough for everyone.
    Love & licks,
    Ruby

  • Hello everyone,
    You know, I was thinking. And I think you girls put on a lot of miles in your travels around the farm everyday. You sure are in good shape. Kudos to you. Those donks are so darn cute. I love them.
    Kirby, good luck getting your little lump removed today. I wonder if they will give you something to make you a little loopy. I am going to think hard all day long and I will think about the vet getting clean margins. Please tell your daddy to give us an update today or you know me, I will worry about my good friend all day long and then my brain will get all dizzy and we don't want a dizzy brain, especially all weekend long.
    We love you Kirby and we will all send you positive thoughts.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • love seeing francesca and sharkey's visits around the farm. especially like their grey quilted coats they have on with today's post (3-8-13) -- seems especially well-suited and proportioned for a frenchie body. how could i get info on these particular coats as i am interested in securing a couple for my frenchie? any info/lead would be very appreciated. thanks!

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, It is so great to see both of you beautiful girls going outside to to see Clive, Rufus, and Billie now that you are doing so well sweet Francesca! Sharkey, you sure do great things to help your sister all the time! The donkeys sure were happy to see you and hope you got that kiss from Billie, Franny! Please say HI to GK! Cora-Belle, sure hope you get good rest and enjoy our recent warm, sunny days! Gail, I love those donkeys, too just like you do! Ruby, you are the greatest sweetheart who loves where you live now and hope you enjoy the snow! You sure have great parents, don't you! Sure hope to hear from the rest of you wonderful buddies and will check back later! Jimmy Dean and Kitty, you are my favorite kitties! Hope all of you have a great weekend! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Morning Girls & Glue Squad, Nice to see the donks today and that they were in the stable, nice & warm while it was snowing. The end of the week has arrived; not without dumping another 10" (+) of the white stuff in our area. It hasn't stopped yet either...Dad will be snowblowing my area again so I can do "my thing" let alone the driveway etc. Kitty, my Mom feels just like your Mom felt last week after seeing this snow again Enough already, soooo ready for spring!! Don't forget to change your clocks this weekend, additional daylight, but we lose an hour :( . Kirby, thinking of you today and wishing you the best, be sure Dad lets us know how you made out. Ruby, what did Mom do?? ;) Lots of c/c time with Mom today while DirectTV is at your house, nap time for sure. Hi to all my friends & buddies. Have a nice weekend everyone.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow

  • Hello Allen,
    Welcome to the Daily Wag. I am a chow. I have lots of fur so that is enough coat for me. You are right, the frenchies look cute in their attire and I am very certain you can get these outfits at Pet Smart as they carry Martha's full line of pet products.
    Hope that helps. Have a nice day
    Maddox

  • Hi Allen,
    Thank you for leaving a comment and I'm so glad that you like our coats! Maddox is right, just go to PetSmart and check out the Martha Stewart Pets line or visit their Web site.

  • Hi Franny, sharkey and G.S.ers!

    who thinks that Franny let Billie give her a kiss? I think she did because she missed the donks so much! Hope everyone is going to have a great weekend. Molly is going to the Vet. It seems she has a bladder infection and can't stop peeing around the house. The humans are taking it in stride bacause it is so out of the norm for Molly! I hope she feels better soon.

    Welcome Allen to the glue Squad. You will find lots of help here. these are the smartest animals on the earth!!!

    Yippe for the time change and it's Friday! What can be better???

  • What a cool way to end the week, taking us out to see your buddies the Donks. They look so happy and relaxed as do you two.

    I hope everyone is doing well. Kirby Bear, I am sending you HUGE hugs, belly rubs, and good thoughts that your Dr. removes the lump and finds that you are clean as a whistle! Have a wonderful weekend everyone. :smile:

  • Hi Girls!
    It's so good to see you running together! Oh, those donkeys are just the best friends. I don't know about a big smooch from Billie though...
    A big "Hello" to Allen. Welcome to our daily party!
    I'm a chihuahua and my coats/sweaters are all from Martha's line at PetSmart. They are well made, comfortable and good looking, too!
    How's that for a sales pitch, Frannie?
    I saw Dr Becky today, I did some yipping when they took blood from my heartworm blood test, but other than that, I got a clean bill of health & some peanut butter, Mimi just got the bill...
    Thinking of our Kirby Bear today, I bet he's waking up about now and resting.
    Have a great weekend everybody.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Now I want to know Franny did Billie plant one on your adorable little face? Heehaaw ;-)
    How nice of you two to visit with them, I think they are so cute...Yep, Gail is happy!
    DDR Thanks for liking JD and me, I think JD is special too. :-)
    Missy Chow, I know your feelings about this snow...today we have glorious sunshine and it's almost 50F BUT later in the day it's suppose to rain and tomorrow as well...Holy Cow where is our snow suppose to melt to???? waaale! :-(
    Gosh can you believe it's Friday again??? geepers!
    Ruby and Lynn, how's the snow situation your way?

    Hugs to all...from,
    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • Kirby, Kirby, oh where art thou, or your Daddy? Please let us know how things went. Love ya big guy--Ruby

  • Kirby, hey big guy, where are you? We thought your daddy would post for you yesterday to let us know how you are doing just in case they had you doped up for your surgery. But we didn't hear anything from him. I worried all day yesterday about you. If you or your daddy don't let us know how you are this is going to be one very long weekend. I hope you are feeling better and that they got that darn lump out and that all is well.
    Cora-Belle, I am glad you are feeling so frisky lately.
    All you Glue Squad members, keep thinking good thoughts for Kirby.
    Love,
    Maddox

  • Hey, I missed all you guys a lot this week-- more internet drama for Mom, and it's not over yet. I see we still haven't heard from Kirby. I hope everything is o.k. Francesca Baby, you look like you are totally back to your old self and that makes me so happy. It's nice to see you, Sharkey, and GK out and about. That pretty black kitty from Dr. Pia's post yesterday looked JUST like our Willa the cat. Willa lived outside and almost got eaten by the neighbor dogs until Mom and Auntie Ellen brought her inside. This was before my time, but Millie says she was a little, scared ball of black fluff, with pretty green eyes. Now she's very self-confident, just like kitties should be.
    We still have too much snow on the ground here. It's hard to find a good place to take care of business outside. Oh, I know something-- Roxy started back to school this week. She was the only one in class the first day, I don't know if that was on purpose or because it had snowed a lot. She could use some one-on-one training, though, if you ask me.
    Have a great weekend, everyone.
    A bientot!
