Enjoy These Archive Portraits!

Posted by F&S

Yesterday was a big day for us Frenchies and GK.  Uncle Carlos drove us to New Jersey, where we were filmed for a PetSmart commercial about all the great Martha Stewart Pets products you can purchase there.  Needless to say, we weren't available to post one of our usual blogs.  However, we thought you might enjoy looking at some of these portraits from our archives.

  • It's finally Friday!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
    Girls, you are looking fetching, as usual. GK, good to see you. We don't see you often enough. We hope those TV peeps treated you ladies with all the respect celebrities deserve. And offer you lots of yummy snacks. We are certain that Uncle Carlos enjoyed your company. We can't wait to see the finished commerical!
    Well, Glue Squadders any exciting weekend plans? Any tailgate parties?
    Hope everyone has alot of fun whatever you do!
    Pugs and kisses,
    Brutus and Max

  • Good morning everyone,
    How exciting for GK, Sharkey and Francesca to be in a commercial. I bet they get paid for that. Heck, maybe they get a bunch of stuff. Cars, jewelry, trips, biscuits. What is wrong with me? They have that now. Hehehehehehehe. I can't wait to see the commercial.
    Zoe, I saw your comment yesterday about Karen and breeding. I posted a comment back to you last night. It is still not on but maybe it will be this morning so try going back on yesterday's blog to check later.
    Very nice pictures today. Those girls could fall asleep on the drop of a pin. Speaking of sleep, Jonesy the Keeshound doesn't know how to tell time. He was barking at 3:30 this morning. Getting up at 5 is bad enough. That boy has food on his mind 24/7.
    What is everyone doing this weekend? Bath time here for some scraggly looking chows. I can watch and laugh cause it isn't me. Hehehehehehehe
    Have a great weekend.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Happy Friday!

    Can't wait to see the commercial! :)

  • Good Morning F & S

    You were in NJ ?? Why didn't you call me we could have done lunch! I can't wait to see your commercials - hell I could have joined you I photograph well :)

    I have a bed just like yours and it came from my friends Lynn and Ruby. It belonged to the love of my life Basil and after he went to Rainbow Ridge his mom sent it to me. It is SO comfy and I'm always having to throw T-Bone out of it. The big goof doesn't even fit in it and he lays on top - go figure.

    Happy Friday! I heard mom say she might sneak out early from work today - that will make me happy. I don't expect to see her much this weekend, golf with the girls tomorrow and Eagles game on Sunday. So it will just be dad and us kids. I don't think dad was too happy with her plans she'll be busy all weekend :(

    Hey Kirby - get any good presents for your birthday? I hope your eye is feeling better.

    Well have a great weekend everyone!!

  • Hello Girls, G.K. & all my Glue Squad Buddies,
    Before I comment on the archives, I must say something again to the Chiweenie family. I posted late yesterday in regards to the vet appointment with Queen Chloe the Chiweenie, but in case you all didn't see, I am sad. I am sad because the news at the vet's with Chloe was not good according to Sophie, 2nd in command. It is so hard when a family member is ill. We are the Glue Squad as our Professor Maddox said when he came up with our name. We stand together through thick and thin, and we are here for you Chiweenie Family, whatever the course is ahead. We love you clear up to God and send prayers to Chloe.

    Now for the blog. I love seeing some of the archives as I am just on almost a year now and haven't seen them all. The birds are so beautiful and I just love the girls in the bed together.

    Everyone have a GEM of a weekend and enjoy the football. GO BRONCOS!!!

    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • :-) What great photos they look professional! Did your photographer friend take these, eh?
    Oh I love canneries and doves, I use to have them as well, the photos bring back good memories.
    Oh no sweet Chloe, I had prayed and hoped your eye would get better...please hang in there, I pray you don't have pain....
    Zoe how nice of Lynn and Ruby to give you Basil's bed...that is so thoughtful, but then Lynn has such a Big heart! <3
    Today another cold day, it was frosty last night and I have to bring in a lot of plants this year...oh boy, where to put them!
    Have a heartwarming weekend ;-)
    Hugs to all
    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • :-( OK, I did not have a full cup of coffee yet and made a faux pas...Chloe my sweet doggie GS friend, I mixed up your name with Kirby...not that they are even close, but wanted to mention his eyes as well as good thoughts and prayer for you... So forgive me for this Faux pas! ;-)
    We all will have you both in our prayers, no one likes their fur-friends to be sick, or hurting.
    Love and prurrrs to you both
    delia & Kitty =^, ,^=

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Gloomy day here; dark sky, wet grass and looks like it will rain at just any minute. Tomorrow doesn’t look any better at all. Sooooo, the weekend doesn’t look good for the south. On the other hand, Daddy said he was going to give me a free chase of the cat for my birthday. He is so nice. When I go outside Mommy claps her hands together several times and yells dog, dog so that the cat will know I’m going out. Daddy said he would just open the door and let me out; free chase if the cat is in the backyard. Hehehehehe Have a good, and safe, weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hey All,
    Guess what??????? It is SNOWING today. Woke up with it snowing and snow on the ground, very wet, but blizzards I am hoping for this winter. A cocoa and popcorn day for sure.
    Love ya,
    Ruby Gem

  • Hello All the GS buddies:
    What a fantastic bunch of photos, we especially love the ones of F&S in the dog bed together. We had dog beds but never used them as Beardies have so much hair we are always "hot dogs". We would much rather lay on a cement or tile floor to keep cool, even if it is cold outside. Mom did a good thing, she took our dog beds to the local animal shelter so that some of the dogs without longer coats could use them. Ruby, we envy you, all of us love to get out in the snow, but we can't look forward to that until at least December - maybe January. Lucky dog you are! Well its very sunny and fall like today but we are expecting rain all weekend - yuk! Riley boy goes to school on Saturdays so he's pumped already. Mom and him have been working on the down stays, but that boy has got ants in his pants! Miz Lu is going to the groomers on Tuesday, her tooth extraction is healed quite well and our human sister Sam figured out why she probably had the cracked tooth - she's not a chewer and would rather dig her bones in, but before Riley boy came on the scene Miz Lu used to play Frisbee in the back yard. She was an excellent catcher, sometimes leaping up 4 or 5 feet to pluck the disc out of the air. However the impact of that Frisbee must have done her tooth in, we don't play that anymore (for her teeth and that Riley and her fight about the Frisbee all the time).
    Well gotta go, we are out on the patio today soaking in the sunshine. Everyone have a good weekend, our healing thoughts are sent to Queen Chloe Chiweenie (whats a Chiweenie?), feel better soon. Love and Beardie bounces to everyone, Martha, Riley boy and Miz Lu.

  • Afternoon Girls, GK & Glue Squad Buddies - It's fun to look back on photos taken and reminisce. GK, sitting at the door is fun isn't it? I do that many times; and F & S, you look so comfy in your beds especially snuggle time. I'm afraid a bed would bet too hot for me; I like the cool tile also. Kirby, hope you had a nice birthday, did you get your ice cream cone?? ;) . Ruby, snow..a little too early for us, we've got temperatures in the high 60's today with lots of sunshine. Keeping my paws crossed for Queen Chloe. Abby, loved your pictures with the kitties, some had to watch them right?? Great job!!Mom went to her "groomers" this morning, she made a stop at Petsmart and she didn't take me eithe..However, I think she has something up her sleeve, she came back with a bag and I know it's not for her, hehe...I just KNOW she is going to try something, I'll keep you posted. No special plans for me this weekend; but Mom & Dad have a wedding tomorrow to coordinate and Dad works late tomorrow night. Football Sunday, go Pats!! Hi to all my friends :) Have a great weekend!

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow

  • Good morning everyone! Martha, Lucinda started calling me and Sophie The Chiweenies from almost day one. We are long haired mini Doxies. I'm a double dapple and have a blue eye and sorta on the chubbie side. Sophie is a black and tan and really tiny; she only weighs 9 pounds. She is really long and when she gets in trouble, which is all the time, mom calls her The Noodle. We don't know WHAT Mayer is, we just know we love him.
    Thank you all for the kind words and prayers. Mom is feeling better and ready to move ahead and do her best to make me better...what ever it takes. It was just such a shock
    Heard her say we have to rake leaves today. Yippee, my favorite game...she rakes em
    into neat piles and Sophie and I race across the yard and jump right in the middle of them...we will make sure Mayer learns this game fast!..Have a great weekend everybody...a special thanks to Ruby...she knows why!
    Chloe, The Queen Chiweenie
