Election Day At The Farm

Posted by F&S

If you've been following the news, then you know that today is that important day known as election day.  In  honor of democracy, we Frenchies thought it would be a good idea to hold a little election of our own.  Government is, after all, a good thing.

Here is what our ballot forms looked like.  We were voting for Councilpet at Large and First Selectpet.

As you can see, Clive the donkey, Meindert the horse, Bartok the cat, Francesca the Frenchie, Sharkey the Frenchie, and Vivaldi the cat were all hopeful contenders.  Why we, the Frenchies, were running against each other, we just don't know.

Ha-ha-ha!  I, Vivaldi the cat, am going to play a little trick on those Frenchies!!  After all, they're always so smug.

I'll just tape this sign onto Martha's paper shredder.

I'm casting my vote for Clive the donkey and, of course, for myself, Sharkey the Frenchie!

Franny, it says that this is the ballot box - I'll just slip mine in.

You're right, Sharkey, but why is it making such a funny noise?

If I whisper who I voted for, will you tell me your vote?

I feel so proud to have voted today.  May the best animal win!

Now, all I need to do is fill in the square that says 'Vivaldi the cat.'

I'll teach those Frenchies to be smug.  I've rigged the election so that I win by a landslide.  I'm the new First Selectpet and now all I have to do is relax!!!

  • Good morning,
    First things first.
    Happy Birthday Sonya!!!!!!!! Have a great day today.
    Now, for the election at the farm. I don't live in that district. But, if I would I would do a write in vote for none other than GK. Yeah!!!
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Good Morning F & S

    Like I've always said you can't trust those furballs and this just proves again that I am right. I think this calls for chase the cats around the house!! If you need me to help out I'm ready for a road trip ;)

    We have a special birthday today our friend Sonya - HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I hope you have a wonderful day :)

    I missed posting yesterday mom left the house at some crazy time in the morning so I just stayed in bed with dad. One of her employees made a banking mistake on Friday and she needed to get it resolved right away. The good news is she found the problem and all is well.

    I think I'll go find T-Bone's toy and hide it ;)

  • Hello Girls & Glue Squad Buddies,
    First off, I must sing, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear Sonya,Happy Birthday to you.....and many more. Did you hear me, did you, did you? After all, you are the best name thinker ever, you came up with Ruby "Gem" and my guardian angel's name, Warrior Prince. You are so smart. Hope you have a great big party.

    Now to this election thing. Cheaters never prosper and Vivaldi all I have to say is you are one big cheat and I know F & S will figure you out.

    Chloe Husky, I am so happy you are alright after the encounter with the raccoon. If you didn't have that nice thick, long fur, I think it wouldn't have turned out so good. Maybe a leash during potty time until all the critters are trapped---for everyones protection. OMG, I am just glad you are fine. And Riley, doing so good in class. Yahoo!!! George,have you been found out yet for the radish row caper? Maddox, is all the hamburger cake gone? sounded yummo!!! Chewy and Black Mama stay safe from those hunters. Brutus and Max, you must tell everyone of your very own Hallmark movie---I checked and it is indeed on their schedule and ready for our DVR---tell 'em, tell 'em. Hope all the toys are back with their rightful owner at the Chiweenie Castle. Well, better go and search the kingdom. Zoe, stay warm and have lots of "cc" time with Dad. Hugs to all my other buddies.
    Have a GEM of a day all.
    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, How fun it must have been to do your own voting because you love Democracy! You two girls look so darling wearing those cute I Voted Today cards on your heads and Vivaldi had a great time playing a trick on your voting so that she would be the winner of the voting! Did GK get to vote, also! I sure miss not seeing hum! Hope you have a great day! Mom and I plus Uncle Tim and his daughter and her husband worked all day to clear our the area in front of our great Kodiak Stove that is in the living room because it was freezing outside! She finally made a great fire and warmed the house up to 72 degrees! I have to go back to read all of your great comments that I missed yesterday you great buddies! Happy Birthday sweet Sonya! Hope you have a great day and stay safe! Will check back later! Love, Dudley do Right XOXOXO+

  • Good morning ladies,
    Well, well, well...that Vivaldi is one smarty pants! We don't have any elections here, but I know that Mimi & Papa always vote. I do like the stickers and on the top of your heads! Now everyone will know you voted. Now, to learn a thing or two about what a shredder is.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Sonya! I sure hope you have a day full of hugs, kisses and your favorite treats!
    Have a great day everybody.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • :-) I guess Inspector Sharkey will have to look into this Ballot/Shredder issue....really Vivaldi!? While you're at it inspector Sharkey, can you find my comment for yesterday...it just is not there :-(

    Sonya, Happy Birthday! May your Birthday be filled with Happiness today and all the days ahead! :-)

    Hugs,
    delia & Kitty =^. .^=

  • Hey F&S, take my word for it, you'd better call for a roll call vote! Hint, Hint, better keep an eye on Vivaldi! Better yet...make a new designation for the winner; winner gets to do everyone's chores. What do you think?

  • Hi Y'all,
    Franscesca and Sharkey, Mis says that you might have stumbled on what REALLY takes place in our country's elections! hummmmmmmmmmmm!!! Checking that machine out next time!
    Nothing much on our ballot except school bonds. Too much growth too quickly if you ask me.
    Happy Birthday Sonya! Have a great one!!
    There's a good chill in the air today and all the foliage is finally glowing. We've got chores out the yazoo so we best get back to work.
    Have a Doggy Good Day!
    Dixie Boy

  • OMG- can I be more in love with the Daily Wag!

    Today's blog was certainly in the top 10! What a crafty cat Vivaldi is!

    Let's hope there isn't any hanging 'chads'! :)

    May the best critter win!

  • Hello Everyone - that Vivaldi, he is a bit sneaky, don't you think? Getting everyone to put their ballot in the shredder - hmmmmm, not very democratic if you ask us!
    Today is another lovely day, we are bagging leaves today, I think the tree finally has dropped everything, although I'll bet the neighbor's trees will now all blow off onto our lawn as well!
    Riley boy got to drive Mom to work today with his human sister Sam, Mom came home from work sick yesterday and left her car at work. He loves riding in cars, and especially the drive thrus. She's better today, but not really all there yet. We haven't had anything really exciting happen so not much to report. We all wish Sonya a very happy birthday today and hope she has a wonderful day. Well gotta go, love and Beardie bounces, Riley boy, Martha and Miz Lu.

  • Hello everyone!
    Cheater, cheater, pumpkin eater! Whatever that means.
    We certainly hope Vivaldi is found out and this election doesn't have to go all the way to The Supreme Court. Don't need another "Florida" on our hands.
    Now onward......Happy, Happy, Happy Birthday Sonya!!!
    Hope you have lots of fun and lots more treats coming your way today.
    Lots of activities around here today. Our sister-in-law, Jennifer has eye issues so Mom was called to take her to work this morning. Then Mom and Dad went to vote. Yes, Max and I were left at home both times. Now later Mom will go pick Jennifer up from work, run her around on some errands and take her home. Whew!!!! Sounds like way too much running time for us.
    Maxie and I will just stay here at home to protect the place and nap.
    Pugs and kisses to everyone.
    And remember to vote early, vote often!!! hahahaha
    Brutus and Max

  • No ballot stuffing there ladies that means you too Vilvadi!

    Thanks for the wonderful Birthday Greetings everyone. I've been developing a new business venture so I will be working on that today which makes me happy because it has great promise. I will be having fun later.

    I hope everyone else has a fab day as well! :smile:

  • Hi Girls - Talk about being sneaky, really Vivaldi! That was not nice at all, but very clever..Hope you know where the girls are at all times in the days ahead. When they catch on as to what happened, ummmmm. Well, Mom & Dad voted this morning also. Will have to wait for the morning results. Not much happening here; we've had some cool temps; but expecting a warm day or two later this week. Happy Birthday, Sonya. Hope you have a wonderful day with lots of surprises. Ruby, we are still picking up leaves, landscaping in the east coast still in business, hehe..Have a great night!
