GK Is A Cover Dog!

Posted by F&S

We Frenchies know from experience that when you are a pet of Martha Stewart's, you just never know where your photo will end up.  For example, GK made the latest cover of Chow Life Magazine!

GK's even on the back cover!  That's some coverage, no?

You have to admit that he's a very handsome Chow Chow.  I believe this magazine is published quarterly and contains articles of interest to exhibitors, breeders, judges, and pet owners.

I can't believe this!  There's even a photo inside showing GK and his handler Jan Kolnick when they took home the ribbon for Best of Breed at Westminster.

You can even see Martha clapping in the background sitting next to her sister, Laura.  They look so happy.

In fact, GK is off at another show, as we speak.  I wonder if he'll win again?

Maybe we should surprise GK and get his photo painted on one.  But I suppose it won't be much of a surprise if his father, Maddox, spills the beans.  He reads and comments every day.

  • Good Morning F & S

    WOW - that GK sure does take a nice picture. He looks great on the cover of that magazine. I'm going to ask mom to pick me up a copy.

    I'm so happy for James and Lucinda and the new addition to their family - welcome Chewy. Black Mama you'll have to show him the ropes and make sure you continue to post we'll miss you!

    It's Friday gang - yahoooo!!!! Mom is playing golf with clients today so she'll be home early. Then we have the grandkid coming over for an afternoon swim. This is the one that likes me, she also loves to feed me :)

    Yesterday we had an issue at the house. The painters were here and my dad's friend came in the house and I thought he was a bad guy and so I nipped at him, only got his pant leg but dad wasn't happy with me. He looked mean!! T-Bone and Sophie were in thier crates and I had to protect dad. The guy laughed because my teeth are so tiny I didn't even poke a hole in his pant leg. Wait till next time I'm going to lift his pants and bite his leg. He'll regret laughing at old Zoe - I'll get him good ;(

    Have a great weekend everyone!!

  • Good morning ladies,
    Wow is right! We always knew G.K. had it in him, right Maddox?
    Welcome to our newest buddy, Chewy! I bet Lucinda was super excited!
    Let us know what day will be Chewy's birthday, O.K.?
    It's hot and dry here, can't go in the lake, but the annual lake ice cream social is on Sunday. Boy, oh boy!
    Hey Zoe....you be careful there girly. You might break a tooth on a pant leg..LOL
    Have a great weekend everybody.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, WOW! Once again, you two beautiful girls have presented another great blog about handsome GK and I love seeing these great photos of him being on the front and back covers of that great magazine, Chow Life!!! Martha, and Laura look so sweet and happy in these magazine photos, also! His handler Jan Kolnick sure does a great job handling him at those Dog Shows! Can't wait to see how well he does on the latest Dog Show! Sure hope you have a great weekend and please hug Martha and GK for me again!! We had another lightning, thunder, and rain storm all night and will have more today until Saturday! It's hard to go outside, but I do pretty well! Thank you so much Black Mama for telling us about the new cattle dog, Chewy who now lives at the ranch! Can't wait to see his photo and learn lots more about him! I love you Black Mama and hope to hear more from you, also! So nice to hear from Brutus and Max, Gail, and Zoe again this morning! Zoe, you sure were a devil trying to bite that guy, but I know you were trying to protect your Dad! Hope to hear from the rest of you great buddies! Have a great weekend! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hello F,S, GK and all the GS buddies:
    Wow, what a photospread on GK - he is so handsome and we all are so impressed with his wins! Great pictures.
    Wonderful to hear that Chewy has joined the family of James and Lucinda, we look forward to hearing of his adventures along with Black Mama and her tribe. Always so wonderful to hear of rescues getting their forever home!
    Well, Riley has been at it again, what a boy - he is a beardie, but I think he must have some lab in him, he has turned into a countersurfer extraordinaire, two nights ago he managed to fish two leftover pieces of pizza off the counter (Bad Dad for leaving them there)and last night he decided that the cat bowl (which was sitting on the counter so that dogs did not finish it off) was smelling so good that he needed to get it on the floor and eat it as well. OMG, the boy does get fed regularly and well, but he seems to have a food instinct. If there is food anywhere, he finds it.
    Well, gotta go, looks like another lovely fall like day, we got down to 49F last night, fall is coming ..... Love and Beardie bounces, Martha, Miz Lu and Riley boy!

  • Morning Girls & Glue Squad Buddies - Wow,it's Friday already and I haven't posted at all this week. Mom didn't put the computer on for me at all, & I wasn't even in the doghouse either. Her schedule was crazy this week. GK, you are one handsome boy and your Dad must be relaxing on the deck with a great big grin, but then again who would blame him :) . Now to catch up, Maddox, glad to hear that Scott is home safe & sound, please extend our thanks for his service. Yes, I do enjoy football too. Ruby, great news on Dad's surgery, make sure he follows instructions. Black Mama, congrats to James & Lucinda on Chewy, I like that name ;) , keep us posted on Ivan & Ivanka's progress at their new home, tell us more about Zippy. Zoe, we had a delivery from FedEx last night and I let the lady know that I protect my house too. Mom got the package and Dad had to hold me. Dixie Boy, be patient, George is still learning. Kirby, our weather has arrived in the NE, a bit chilly this morning. Abby & JamesDean, no #5-first official game on Sunday, Kitty, hope you had a nice birthday. Hi Rebel, Dudley Do Right, Martha, Miz Lu & Riley-(Riley good luck in school ;) ) any new adventures?? Sorry if I forgot anyone, didn't mean to!! Better run, enjoy the weekend.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow
    xoxo

  • Hello Girls, G.K. and all my Glue Squad Buddies,
    Everything is cause for a party today, G.K. a magazine celeb (what a handsome guy like Dad), Lucinda had a wonderful surprise with Chewy, and I love your name too, Chewy, the Broncos won big time, and best of all, my Dad is home from the hospital and is cancer free from the pathology that came back yesterday. Yahoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
    I am doing my HAPPY DANCE. I feel on top of the world and no one can take me down. We are having hot weather, but I am helping Mom lots with everything, being a great nurse. Thank you all my friends for your love and prayers for my Dad. "C" monsters suck but The Glue Squad rules. Oh, happy days are here again, the skies are blue and clear again, oh happy days are here again......could you hear me singing?
    Have a GEM of a weekend all.
    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • HI Y'ALL!
    Great photo spread GK! That will get the Ladies excited! I'm sure a couple are already pinning you on their wall. And we know who you are!. Thanks Francesca and Sharkey for letting us know what's happening at Martha's house. We look forward to reading about you guys everyday.
    Great news Black Mamma. Please keep in touch. Sounds like Chewy has found his place and we hope to hear how he likes it there.
    Careful Zoe! I nipped someone once. Didn't mean to! They swung a clip board. Scared me! I'm not as jumpy now, (Thank Goodness!!!). I just let them know or think that I'm bad right from the start so there are no questions! Really, I'm not that bad, just want people to respect me!
    Ruby, I heard you! Sounds like party time there! Don't let dad over do it though!!!
    So glad it's cooler and fall-like. The AC hopefully is going to get fixed today. MAN, I WAS GRUMPY LAST NIGHT! Mis figured that I hadn't slept well the night before with the windows open. Too many noises!
    I was so tired last night, I didn't care. Mis is kinda enjoying keeping windows open. Reminds her of when she was little and they didn't have AC. Back then though, there wasn't an interstate running through the back 40.
    Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!!
    Taking George to the vet for his last shots and microchip, got to go.

  • Hi all,
    Just a quick post. Maddox does not spill the beans. Maddox would eat the beans. Maddox, being me, is hard at work with the kennel crew while Karen is at the show with GK. Somebody had to hold the fort down here.
    I will catch up with you guys a little later.
    I am very happy about Will and about the new addition to the ranch for Lucinda and James and Black Mamna. I will spill the beans about one thing. Tomorrow GK is getting a visitor at the dog show that is a member of the Glue Squad. I spilling the brand about who it is? No way. Hehehehehehehe
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Wow what a way to start the weekend! G.K. you look stunning on the cover both front and back. What a fantastic recognition for Team G.K. Franny and Sharkey you are wonderful big sisters for letting us know about it.

    Congrats congrats congrats to all of the Glue Squad for so many things. Welcome Chewy, sorry that you have had a rough life before but all of that will now be washed away. Black Mama, I hope you and Chewy comment together. Riley, I want to see video of you counter surfing and snagging the food. Ruby Gem Girl, so happy that Daddy's coming home to his little girl! Zoe doesn't Dad know you are just being Zoe? Missy Chow, Dudley, Rebel, Jan, Gail, Abby and James Dean, Kirby Bear, Brutus and Max, Martha, Miz Lu, Proud Daddy Maddox, Dixie Boy and anyone I may have accidentally forgotten, a happy wonderful weekend to all! :smile:

  • Wow great job G.K. and Mama Martha!!!
    You both look great in the cover shot for the Chow life magazine.
    Maddox, are you going to see your son?????
    WELCOME CHEWY!!!!! Great job and look forward to seeing and hearing about your new home on the ranch with Black Mama!!!
    Missy Chow, we will be following No. 5 and watching to see how his career goes. In the meantime hope your Pats do well. We are also watching the Jets.
    Ruby, congrats on your dad's good news and homecoming.
    Well almost fried our computer this morning when there was a power surge locally.
    Hope Rebel, Kirby, Brutus, Max, Dudley, and everyone especially ZOE has a good weekend!!!
    back to reading about pumpkins...

  • That's a very nice magazine. All the breeds have them, and our very, very dear Aunty Suzanne and FirstMama, Francesca Baby, started up and worked on one of the prettiest of all for French Bulldogs.
    Oh, and if you want to get something really special for GK, we suggest finding a lady called the Pooch Painter, her name is Alice, and she does air brushed paintings of dogs at dog shows and I THINK online too. She uses pretty stones or wood to make her paintings on, much hardier than china!! She has done two pictures of Demi for us-- one of her beautiful baby picture and then another grown up picture-- and they look JUST like her!!! The next time Mom is at a dog show with her, she is going to have Miss Alice paint a picture of Chloe and after that Millie, and after THAT it will be MY turn!!
    A bientot!

  • :-) Woohoo! Look at that perdy dog named GK on the cover of Chow Life Magazine! Way to go you sweet thing! Maddox he's a reflection of you...you certainly can be a proud daddy.
    Chewy Welcome to the DWaggers Glue Squad gang....I'm happy you have a good home :-)
    This week at the Lake front house, to my horror I discovered there wasn't any WiFi for my iPad however the kids all had their work phones, iPads, iPods etc with them having WiFi... Honestly they all looked like they had an extra appendage holding those darn things trying to work their deals, day and night...I'm so glad I don't work anymore ;-)
    I enjoyed the grandogs and walking on the Lake Michigan beach getting some sun and color. My youngest daughter kept me liquered up and playing games etc. it truly was an enjoyable Anniversary gift from the girls.

    Kitty is soooooo happy we are home, she keeps on rubbing and purring and talking with her little meuwws...we missed her.

    Thank God for the good news from Ruby about his human daddie Will.

    delia & Kitty =^,_,^=

  • Hi Girls,
    Just going back to read all your posts since I have been away and my heart skipped a beat when I saw GK :) He is soooooo handsome. One of these days I definetly need to get mom to bring me up to your part of the woods and try to meet my prince in shinning armor LOL I would be one happy husky if I could meet him :) Hey, a girl can dream can't she? ;)

    Well back to the sofa to finish my nap. Talk you tomorrow.

    Love
    Chloe xx

  • You two are so cute!! And so is that gorgeous GK, as evidenced by his beautiful magazine photos.
