Relief for GK

Posted by F&S

GK spends a good deal of time during the summer months indoors where it's nice and cool.  With all that fur, he has a difficult time in the heat.  However, his season is arriving and his energy level will be picking up.  Yesterday was a gorgeous day and we Frenchies decided to put a jump on things.

Hey GK, the weather is so nice and cool today and we Frenchies were wondering if you want to go the the empty paddock to hang out?  I'll drive us there.

Hey Glue Squad - Do you know what having GK in the empty paddock means?  It means GK can run like crazy, which is something he loves to do!

GK, I know that you and Francesca love to play a bit rough, so you two go ahead and have fun, after I pose for a quick photo with you.

Watch and learn Sharkey.  Notice how quietly I sneak up on him.

  • ...glad you got to run like the wind, G.K., a guy just needs to do that..and that is exactly what I did today..Lucinda says she forgot how fast cattledogs can move..and I wasn't even going full speed ahead for fear I would knock her over...but she stood her ground and I veered around her at the last minute..just a cattledog game I like to play..there was talk of a bath today..but that has been changed to Sunday..now that should be interesting..you see Cora-Belle always bathed in the river..Black Mama and that goofy group all got their winter sleeping boxes spread around the farm/ranch today..for ferals those guys sure get treated good...I am exhausted so I better get on the bed and call it a night..later all my glue squad buddies, Chewy

  • Oh no...

    Empty paddock means...

    Where are the donks? :)

    Aw, to run free with the wind blowing through your fur must be a real treat GK! :) And, to have two cute and playful sisters to bandy about the place just adds to the excitement!

    Happy Wednesday..

  • Good morning one and all,
    Run GK, run!!!! I love to run and let the nice cool air hit me smack in the face. Ahhhhh, what a treat. You should go to the paddock to run several times a week. Just grab the keys to the Kawasaki and away you go.
    Well, yesterday was sad stuff and funny stuff. I am so sorry the cat shelter burned down but I am happy that cats were saved. I hope the community chips in and rebuilds it quickly. Worms! Rolling in them, eating them. Who knew how important they were to some Glue Squad members. Hehehehehehehe. Rebel, next time you pee on the floor, run like crazy to Mimi and tell her Papa did it and then run like the wind to Papa and tell him Mimi did it, they will both look at each other with their mouths open and you can sit there like a little angel and they will be none the wiser. Riley, I feel sad that you have to start school naked when the other students will be dressed. Kirby, you crack me up. I have heard people say they hate when it rains or they love when it is a nice light rain but I have never heard anyone say they were insulted by the rain. Too funny. How nice of James and Lucinda to put out little condos for Black Mamma and the other ferals. Enjoy your bath Chewy. Hehehehehehehe he. Everyone have a great day
    Love,
    Maddox

  • Good Morning F, S & GK

    Franny I'm with you there is nothing better than a nice game of tackle with the big guys. I love to chase them and jump on their heads. Sharkey why not join in the fun?? It's the best running like a made Frenchie then a leap to the head - ahhh think I might do that with T-Bone after I'm finished here :)

    GK it's nice that you have a place to run but you should really learn not to run away you could enjoy the entire farm. Maybe as you mature you won't feel that need to stray. Sophie was like that if mom would open the front door she would bolt. Those days are over for her she is a good girl. Now me on the other hand sometimes I'll run but I head right to the feral cat feeder so I get caught really fast.

    Black Mama my mom has a cat box that she fills with straw for the ferals in the winter but she doesn't think anyone goes in it. It's a cute little condo :)

    Hey F & S my mom sent an email to the DW. There is a really sick little girl who Ruby's mom knows. She is really really sick. She loves to get cards and pictures of dogs while she is in the hospital so the Glue Squad was thinking maybe a card from the 3 of you would make her feel better. I'm going to make a life size poster of myself that would make anyone feel better :) She knows all about the Glue Squad so maybe you can make this happen.

    Have a great day!!!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Running is a great sport and we all should try it out. It makes you strong and is good for your heart. At least that’s what they tell me. I still like to run even if I have the “cone” on my head. Yep, that’s right, I still have to keep it on because I chew on my feet. Daddy took it off of me the other day and, bam, I was chewing my foot within three minutes. My vet says that some dogs think they are helping themselves, but they are really doing damage to themselves. In the meantime, I can still run and play in my backyard; that makes the neighbor dogs bark. Hehehehe
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • :-) what a cute picture of you Franny and GK on #8 soooo cute! That is a great idea allowing GK to run in the paddock, I thought of that as well. Bet you are happy to be home fluffy fluff.
    Black Mama how nice that you have places to share for the feral cats...here in Wisconsin we have some vet clinics that nueter ans spay feral cats for like $35 + shots, dip and the tip of one ear is cropped to tell people the feral cat is fixed...this is what we did with Kitty.
    Speaking of Kitty, she went out at 4:00am then at 6 i woke up because of rain, thunder and lightning. We let her in even though she does not fear that weather, but the bolts were right in our yard loud and bright...she came in went directly to the window and watched the light show.
    Praying that all is well with the DWGS and that the weather conditions are improving in Colorado and wherever needed...
    Have a great hump-day everyone! ;-)

    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • Morning Girls, GK & Glue Squad - It's great to see all of you in the open paddocks. It's fun to just run free and get some exercise. I know, I did that a couple of weeks, bolted from the front door when it got opened, checking out the neighborhood, back yards; and of course, the woods for critter smells. Mom & Dad were NOT happy and I got a time out for the rest of the day. F & S, your fashion show in the last two posts were eye catching; however I don't need the extra warmth. Maddox, Kirby, our kind of cool & refreshing weather is arriving each day. You know what that means, deck time!! Abby & James Dean, sorry to hear about the shelter fire, glad all the kitties are okay. Riley, good luck with school, this weekend. It will be fun to see your other classmates, be sure to keep us updated. Rebel, did you say your team is the Bears? Dudley, how are you doing? Chloe, anything new? Ruby, how's Dad? Hi Chewy, Black Mama, Brutus & Max, George, Dixie Boy, Baby Favor, Martha & Lucy, Kitty, Zoe, hope everyone is doing okay. Got to run, back to the deck.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow

  • Good morning G.K. & ladies,
    What a great time! Running around is the best thing to do!
    This will be my last post until Tuesday. I am going to go live with Dr. Becky and the gals for a few days. Mimi & Papa are going to fly (in an airplane I guess) to Florida to visit relatives. They say I used to live at the house where they are going, but I don't remember. I bet I'd remember if I came a long.
    Hey Maddox, I'm going to remember that little tip next time. I'll try hard not to have a next time though.
    Til next week!
    Your pal (in a cage barking my lungs out with the other inmates.)Rebel

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, OMG! How fun it is to see all 3 of you beautiful, handsome Frenchies and Chow Chow who live on such a beautiful farm with Martha and all of her crew and other animals! Sharkey, you are a super Kawasaki driver! Francesca, you are a super lover of GK and you love to play with him! GK, you are a wonderful lover of those Frenchies and I love all 3 of you and want to hug you like Franny did! How great you can run around in that empty paddock with your cute buddies, GK! I just love all 3 of you and hope you have a great day again!!! James Dean, so sorry to hear about that awful cat shelter fire and I hope all of those cats are safe! How thoughtful that your Mom is a volunteer for them! My prayers are with all of them plus you and your Mom as well as your buddies and all of ours! Chewy, you are such a great cattle dog so similar to Cora-Belle! Say Hi to Black Mama for me! Nice to hear from Chewy, Gail, Maddox, and Zoe this morning and will check back later for the rest of you buddies! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • Hello Girls, G.K. & all my Glue Squad Buddies,
    What a fun day for you 3, now that the days are getting a Fall chill. G.K. and all you long hairs, you kind of have your own air conditioner built in when you run like the wind and breeze is on your body.

    The rains have slowed down here and we actually had sun yesterday. They saved 900 animals and 700 people by helicopters yesterday. Way to go military. Thank you!!!

    Thank you Zoe for asking for photos/autographs from Franny, Sharkey and G.K. for our friend, Maddy who is sick and going through chemo. She is so brave. I wish I could get a bottle of her bravery to help battle some of my fears. Mom and Dad think a snake bit me and they would be correct. Dad saw me chasing one about 4 weeks ago, and that is when I got scared to go on the grass. Really scared when you bring rain in the picture. Dad researched on line with professionals and others whose pets were stung or bitten by a snake, and yes, I know I am a scaredy cat now but the family is being patient and really working hard with me. I want to run like the wind again and play in snow. I think I can, I think I can. Chewy it sounds like you are fitting in with the entire clan. I am so happy for all of you. Do you know I will be celebrating my 1 year birthday in my forever home, November 21st? Remember I was only 40 pounds and stole the Thanksgiving dressing? Hehehehehehe Do you think I can plan that Thanksgiving caper again this year? I am 55 pounds now, probably wouldn't believe I am starving anymore. Riley, Lucy, and Martha, I heard it was your Mom's birthday today, so give her a love, lick and tummy rub from Ruby. Have a GEM of a day all!
    Love & licks,
    Ruby

  • Hello Everybody and welcome to Fall ....
    We are having spectacular cooler weather and we love it. We are all long haired dogs, except for Riley boy who is very short right about now, and it is wonderful to feel the cool breeze blowing. Mom is celebrating her birthday today and we are all having ice cream birthday cake tonight - yippee, we all love ice cream. Talk to every one later, have a wonderful fall day and get outside if you can. Love and Beardie bounces, Martha, Riley boy and Miz Lu.

  • Hello Francesca,Sharkey and G.K. and my glue squad friends,
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Lucy,Riley and Martha's Mom today!!!
    G.K. it was wonderful to see you have the opportunity to RUN FREE in the empty paddock. Francesca looks very active and was cute giving G.K. a big hug. Sharkey rubbing on your beautiful fur was a nice picture too.
    Rebel, I am sure the techs and staff at Dr.Becky's hospital will give you lots of TLC and special meals, exercise time, etc. It really is not an inmate situation but kind of like a doggy spa. Mom plays classical music or pop for the dogs and cats, they get a lot of attention and play time too when they board.
    Zoe, we always think of you on Wednesday and the camel who loves hump day!!! Missy Chow, Kirby and Maddox must love this cooler weather for deck time in the sunshine. Dudley, thank you for all your nice comments. Kitty, you are really brave to watch a lightning show from the window. Black Mama, its great you and the ferals have special warm nesting boxes for the winter. Ruby, sorry to hear about your fear of snakes. This is such a pretty time of year I hope you are enjoying lots of fall walks.
    Abby and Mom walked down to the pumpkin patch today and we have beautiful plants and flowers but something ate the tiny pumpkins. We will have to go get our pumpkins at a farm stand now. Its apple season now so that will be a fun outing!
    Cannot wait to see the pumpkins on our blog. Hope everyone has a puuurrrrfect day,
    James Byron Dean

  • ..a birthday..ice cream, cake..oh boy! Happy Birthday to Martha, Miz Lu and Riley Boys mom!..me and Black Mama and the tribe will do something naughty in honor of your big day..so enjoy! Love, Chewy and the gang

  • Hi Everybody! Doesn't it feel good to just let your hair down and run like the wind? After bugging the Cheweenies all morning, I finally got them up and moving and we raced around the house for a while; but The Cheweenies like to dart under furniture that they know I can't fit under and then jump out and attack me! We roll around the floor for awhile making all kinds of awful sounds, then we're off down the hall again. Mom says it sounds like a herd of horses not 3 small dogs...we just like keeping her on her toes.
    Hope you enjoy your bath Chewie! I just zone out and go to my happy place till the hair dryer gets put away and then I make nest in the middle of moms bed and glare at her every time she walks by. She can't take much of that and will break out the treats eventually!! The Cheweenies have taught me well!
    Hope everyone has a great day!
    Mr. Mayer signing out!

  • Well Sharkey, that picture of you driving Francesca and GK in the Kawasaki to the paddock is the cutest thing! Looks like you all had great fun.

    Angela

  • Run like the wind G.K. like the wind!!!!

    Happy belated Birthday to Martha, Riley boy, and Miz Lu's Mom, I hope you had a dandy of a time! :smile:
