An End Of January Visit With The Donks!

Posted by F&S

As many of you have experienced, it's been brutally cold and not at all fun to be outdoors.  Yesterday, the temperatures were a bit more tolerable and we Frenchies were missing our friends, the donks, so we set out to find them for greetings and salutations.

Well, the donkeys aren't in their paddock, so we're on our way to the stable to see if that's where they might be.

Just like the burlap covered boxwood allee, we are dressed for warmth.  It's been brutal outdoors!

Hey Donks!  We thought you might appreciate a visit from your Frenchie friends.

We donks have been out all morning, so happy that it was actually above freezing.

Tell me about it, Clive!  The polar vortex has been really brutal for us Frenchies, too.

Sharkey, I love your quilted coat.  We donks have coats, but we don't like to wear them.

We grow extra thick coats to tolerate the winter.

I second that, Sharkey!  Stay warm Gluesquadders! Let's get through February and hopefully, March will be a walk in the park!

  • Good morning everyone,
    The donks. I love the donks. They are so cute You girls look nice and toasty in your cold weather gear.
    Well, just think , Martha Jack , people all over the country will be having parties this weekend in honor of your birthday and a little game called the Super Bowl. Happy Birthday, enjoy enjoy

  • Hello Girls & all my Glue Squad Buddies,
    What a wonderful visit with the Donks. Know this will make Gail's weekend. They look comfy and cozy. And now.........
    Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday to You, Happy Birthday dear Martha Jack, Happy Birthday to You, and many more. Could ya hear me in Canada Martha? I sang extra loud.Yep, there will be parties for your celebration everywhere.

    It was the vet visit yesterday, and Brutus and Max, Mom and Dad do it this way, since I am not much of a social butterfly, and my doctor is really cool. For anything other than shots I have to put my big girl panties on and go to an office. I went on a 4 mile walk and still had lots of energy for jumping and showing her my butt vrooming skills outside. She just knows that is how to do it.

    Now Kirby, I think if I got it correct, you state of Georgia was in the news lots the last few days with ice storms and snow, that are unusual. I hope everyone is safe now.

    Today the prep starts for the Super Bowl Party. I have been dreaming of all the goodies. Yummo city!!! And it is Ground Hog Day too. I best go and play before helping in the kitchen. Martha, have a GEM of a birthday tomorrow and I know you will get lots of surprises.
    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • Good Morning F & S

    That was so nice that you went to visit the donks. I'm glad to see that they are keeping warm indoors. I just love their big ears must be a Frenchie thing ;)

    Happy Birthday Martha Jack!!!!!

    So my x-ray showed no stones or blockages now tomorrow I have to get a urine culture. Not looking forward to this one I think there is a needle in my future :( Not to worry I'm feeling fine and causing trouble. The best part is I'm being even spoiled more!!!!

    So the big game is this weekend and I know there are bets of Prince Warrior biscuts and cookies out there so let the trash talk begin!!! Dad wants the Seahawks and I want the Broncos, I think Peyton is a cutie.

    Have a great weekend everyone!!!

  • Hi F,S,&GK+ Glue Squad, It was so much fun for you 2 sweet girls to share these wonderful photos of your visit to the stable to see the donks and I loved every one of them! They looked so happy to see you girls and were happy being in the stable because it was freezing outside! They looked very healthy and so did you girls! Hope you have a great weekend and please hug GK again! Mom and I will watch our Seahawks and Ruby's Broncos on TV Sunday at New Jersey! Hope you get to watch it, also! Fun to hear from Brutus and Max, Maddox, Ruby, and Zoe this morning and will check back later for the rest of you buddies! Happy Birthday Martha Jack up there in Canada on Saturday! Love, Dudley Do Right XOXOXO+

  • What a great way to end the month of January...a visit the donks! Just what I needed!

    Luckily February is a short month...let's hope it zips by lickity split and we can get closer to Spring!

    Let's also hope Pux Phil doesn't see his shadow! Can F&S put a call into him and nudge him to an early Spring! :)

    Happy Friday to all the gluey's!

  • Hello ladies, Kirby here.
    Well we made through the week with lots of things happening. The snow is almost gone in my backyard. I’ll miss that stuff. I had so much fun playing in it for two days. Yep, Georgia has been in the news for the last two days. My Daddy said that if you look at the pictures you will see the problem; thousands of trucks. Atlanta has more overpasses, and bridges, than any other city around. When Ice is on the highways these trucks cannot move. They block up the highways and people who can move can’t because of them. It would have been better to just park for two days and not be in that “jam” for three days. People should use the brain God gave them. Ooopppps, I fell off of my soap box so I’ll shut up. Have a good, and safe, weekend all.
    Catch you later, Kirby.

  • Hello all the GS buddies: Well firstly, thank you for the HB wishes for tomorrow, I'm looking forward to my birthday, I'll be 7. Mom has already got the cake, the pizza will be ordered and Miz Lu said that she saw a Petsmart bag that Mom was hiding in the linen closet. I think there are greenies in the house somewhere! We plan to go for a walk in the leash free park Mom found which is just off of some of the more remote parking lots where Mom works. We get to run around like crazy and burn off the energy we are storing. I just like to run around after Miz Lu and Riley boy, I don't need to be first, I'm really laid back and enjoy just doing my own thing. After that we'll probably go somewhere for food from a window and then a nice car ride which makes me fall asleep almost immediately (especially after a long walk). That's my BD plans. A little low key, but I will enjoy them. We will be rooting from the Broncos on Sunday, partying and watching the half time show - Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers - how can Red Hot chili peppers put on a show?? I'll have to watch that one for sure. It's warmer out today, just at zero, so we are outside a bit more - watching our cat buddies walk along the fence - supposed to get more snow tonight and tomorrow ... will it never end? Riley boy here, I heard about some crazy running in the park tomorrow??? I'm ready to go now, lets go for it! Everyone have a lovely weekend, party safely, and stay warmly! Love and Beardie bounces, Martha, Miz Lu and Riley boy.

  • Good morning ladies & Donks,
    You gals are looking great today. It has been a challenge to stay warm. Like our gal Zoe, I wait til the last minute to go outside, do my duty and high tail it for the door. The cold air even gave me the "snorts".
    Now, Happy Birthday Martha Jack! Best wishes for your special day.
    Oh my Zoe, a needle? Glad the other tests didn't find anything though. Keep being your spunky little self! Mimi thinks Peyton is a cutie, too. Oh, good grief, you girls.
    Have a great weekend everybody! Hope your team wins!
    Your pal,
    Rebel
    PS I'm with Gail. I sure hope it is really dark and cloudy at Phil's house! Winter can go away now.

  • :-) F&S and the Donks, what a way to end a week! #7 photo is sooo cute! :-)

    Friday again and before we know it, the end of Feb. well that's how it seems to me...time passed quickly when you have many things on your plate...and I don't mean food! ;-)

  • Hi Fancesca Baby, Sharkey, and Donks! It's good to see everyone. I hope everyone has a great weekend. Supposedly there's some game of some type going on while TV shows a bunch of new commercials? Have fun-- we'll be waiting for/watching Downton Abbey! But first, send lots of GS mojo to us for tomorrow-- Mom, Millie, Roxy, and I are going to be at a big Pet Expo raising money for French Bulldog Rescue Network in our Kissing Booth. Sure hope we make a lot to help our friends in need!
