Preparing For Our Camping Road Trip

Posted by F&S

Summer is a great time for outdoor activities.  We Frenchies thought it would be fun to see what camping was like.  We found some great clothing, toys, and gear from the Martha Stewart Pets line at PetSmart and were anxious to get going.

Look at me wearing the Camp Camouflage Dress.  This sleeveless dress with its camo design will hide me from sight.  I'm also resting on a Folding Camo Bed, which will be great for our camping trip.

Sharkey, I'm all prepared for the outdoors wearing the Camp Scout Dress.  It's warm and stylish for our outdoor adventure.  The dress even has a Pawscout sash across the back.

Francesca, I think I'll pack the Camp Camo Dress and wear this Campfire Tank instead.

Oh dear, Sharkey!  It appears to be raining so we'll have to delay our departure for our camping trip.

I have an idea, Franny.  Why not take a little snooze in the mean time and maybe the rain will pass.

  • Good Morning F & S

    Camping??? I don't think Momma M is into camping, maybe heading to Maine if you want to call that camping :)

    Mom is back from the beach and said the house still smells :( All of the windows are open and Joe is coming back again on Friday to spray, Dad told her it's just going to take time but she doesn't want to hear that - she wants the smell gone.

    I was sorry to hear that James is not feeling well. Mom and I will get a card out today - hearing from the Glue Squad will make him feel better :)

    F & S if you need their address shoot mom an email. I'm sure hearing from both of you would make him feel better :)

    Well gotta run I hear breakfast being served - YUM

  • Good morning everyone,
    You girls look so darn cute in all the different outfits. I was thinking about something. Do you two get love letters from any male suitors? I bet you do. You two are da bomb.
    Zoe, your mom should talk to your local fire company. They have some kind of spray that takes the smoke smell out of houses that have fire damage and that is a heavy smell so maybe whatever they use will work to get rid of the skunk fragrance.
    Ok Glue Squad, we are on a mission. We are going to send James and Lucinda cards. We want to let James know that we all hope he has a speedy recovery and what better way for him to get that extra boost of love than to get cards from the Glue Squad. And we want Lucinda to know that we are here for her too. So, lets show those two wonderful people what the purpose of the Glue Squad is. Let's let Black Mamma , Ivanka and Ivan know how much we care about the whole family. I am pretty good at thinking and I think that Cora-Belle is giving us the paws up on this.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello Girls & Glue Squad Buddies,
    My, oh my, oh my, don't you girls look stylin'. My favs are #3 and #5. It is good the weather is turning to Fall a bit, so you won't be hot in the apparel. Mom is thinking of getting me a Broncos' tee-shirt to wear during the games. And speaking of games---another pre-season on Saturday with your Seahawks Dudley and Black Mama, Ivanka and Ivan. It will be fun to think of us all watching on Saturday night at the same time. Brutus and Max, don't forget the e-mail address to Zoe's Mom, and who are Kayla and Logan? The grandkids? Oh, and when Mom and Dad went to this Cabelas place yesterday, they brought me back a soft big ball and oh, what fun. Now this morning Dad is off to fishing for a few days. Mom and I are the dynamic duo. I will hold down the fort while Dad is fishing. Hugs to James and Lucinda, Black Mama, Ivanka and Ivan. Glue Squad energy is coming your way. Everyone have a GEM of a day and Riley hang in there with the noise business. I didn't like the carpet people, but Mom hung out on the patio--maybe your Dad can sit by the pool with you. That's livin'!!!
    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, Once again, you two beautiful girls look so cute wearing those fantastic dresses that Martha provided for you from PetSmart again! These newest ones are so darling and you both are enjoying them!! Were you getting ready to go with Uncle Carlos to Maine?! I'm sure you two sweeties and handsome GK had a wonderful time there!!! I also love your toys you got to take with you! Be sure to hug GK and Martha for me again and have a great day! My Mom and I are both very concerned about how James is doing and our prayers are with him for ever and with Lucinda and Black Mama plus Ivanka and Ivan! Thanks for your comments, Gail, Zoe, and Maddox this morning and will check back later to read the rest! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Camping? You two give a whole new name to camping. Just think, I have been doing this all wrong all along. I don’t have any fancy outfits when I camp. Guess you could say I go in the buff. Getting cold is not my worry, but getting food sometimes is on my mind. I guess I could say about here; grow some fur and you won’t get cold on those cool nights in the woods. But you two have short fur and it won’t grow any longer ever. I guess I’ll have a nap and dream about camping. Dream: Ah campfires, squirrels, birds singing, ducks walking through the campsite, gentle breezes blowing, and skunks. How did a skunk get into my dream. Oh yeah, thinking about Zoe, and T-Bone, will do that.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Morning Girls & Glue Squad - First of all, sending all good wishes and a fast recovery to James. Lucinda, thinking of you..hang in there, Girlfriend! Black Mama, Ivan & Ivanka, make sure everyone does what they are suppose to do. Maybe Ruby will send her nurses cap to you. I finally got some computer time this morning; things have been a little crazy at home so before I head out again to the patio & Mom leaves for errands wanted to say hi to all my buddies. F & S your camping outfits are adorable, you both look so fashionable. Does Uncle Carlos camp? Maybe he's packing his camping gear too? Ivaldi, great post on Monday. Bet you enjoyed some quiet time and the Doves, so peaceful, bet they will be fun to watch and listen to. The weather today is terrific, nice and comfy, very low humidity..my kind of weather for sure. Well, better run, days are getting a little shorter now and need all the outside time I can get; well maybe not. I still have to keep an eye out inside :) .

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow

  • Hello F&S, GK and all the GS buddies:
    Wow those outfits are very fetching girls, especially the camo line. We'll just call you the camo dudettes! I hope you found someone to take you camping, I'm sure that you would be much quieter than some of us here, not to name names Riley boy!
    We too are thinking of James and Lucinda, we have sent the cards today, but goodness knows how long it will take to get them there - there is a reason that both the Canadian and US postal services are not doing the business they once were! However, maybe in a week or so!
    Well the workmen finished up their job, all the banging stopped and Riley boy is once more calm, cool and collected (well as much as a young boy can be!). He and Lucy are our DEW (distant early warning) system - no one gets past them, that's for sure. We went to the "empty" park again last night, it was wonderful to be able to run like stink, bark our heads off and still be somewhat contained within the park. The weather has been cooler, no humidity and certainly a vast improvement over July! We love fall weather! Well gotta go affix our paw prints to the cards, so we'll leave you all for now. Love and beardie bounces to all - Martha (writing), Miz Lu and Riley boy.

  • :-) Adorable F & S! You two look so cute in those outfits, but must say I don't see smiles on your faces lol! You guys actually look like I do, tired trying to get ready changing cloths till I find something I think I look OK in ;-) ha ha
    Kitty is sleeping next to me on the computer desk, I can barely type...funny I don't want to invade HER space. She was so funny this morning, I would not get up when SHE wanted me to at 4:30am so she came on the bed and laid face to face with me pushing her whiskers into my face and licking my eye lids...I said NO and she ran, coming back an hour later trying the same thing at 5:30...yep, I got up and fed her wet food.
    Good thoughts and continued prayers for James and Lucinda.
    DWaggers-Glue Squad friends have a grand day!
    Hugs and prurrs
    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • Hello Sharkey, Francesca, and all my glue squad friends,
    Great camping outfits today girls and those camo beds look so comfy! I wonder if the store had kitty camo beds???? I love the plush toys too, Abby does not know it but there is a nice M.S. toy hidden up in my room for her at holiday time.
    I hope you get to go camping soon, maybe Uncle cralos will drive. Kirby, we liked your dream until the skunks showed up. Maddox, I read your post late last night and got our mail out to james and Lucinda. Hope James feels better real soon.
    Certainly was fun seeing posts from Missy Chow, Dudley, Ruby Tuesday and my buddies today. Nice and cool here, end of summer winding down. Maybe we can all imagine a pool party at Zoe's house, with toasted hotdogs, catnip for the cats, warrior biscuits for the beardies, lots of jumbalaya for all and some great music... mmm.. let's go!

  • Good morning ladies!
    Are you girl stylin' or what? Sooo very cuuuuute to be sure!
    I've had company for the past week. Mimi & Papa's Granddaughter, Aubrey stopped by and boy was I glad to see her! It's been 2 years since I've seen her, but doesn't matter on little bit. She's leaving today & I know I'll miss her.
    Ruby, that ball sounds really swell and Martha, Miz Lu and Riley, glad you had the run of the park. There's nothing like a good run to help you forget all that noise!
    Now, to Black Mama, Ivanka, Ivan and Lucinda, I sure hope that James is feeling lots better today and gets back home real soon.
    Til tomorrow.
    Your pal,
    Rebel
