gibson and ghetto hit instagram!

by Sharon Santoni

My friends, I think that today you’ll start to have serious doubts about my sanity. ….I have to tell you that Gibson and Ghetto have taken a big decision and have opened their very own instagram page!   Hmmm…

It all started when a pal of theirs told them that dogs on instagram are all the rage, and well, you know how they love to pose for a camera, so they just jumped at it.  They even have their own email address!, and if you want to send them a note of congratulations I’m sure they’d love that too.

They asked me to tell you about it, so that is what I’m doing.  I told them I’d encourage you to go over and take a look, and maybe even add a like, or follow,  but of course I couldn’t possibly force you!

They have put up their own pictures, and some shots of their friends too,  if you want to see more, just click here  or check it out on the sidebar.

So this is probably the point where you will choose to take MFCH off your blog roll, unsubscribe from the blog and mention to your closest friend “that woman in France;  you know the one with the horses in the garden, well I shan’t be reading her any more, she’s completely lost the plot”!

…oh,  the risks I take for those mutts!

Thay are adorable. And you sound perfectly sane to me. I wanted to open a facebook page for my Ruby but my insane family threated to institutionalize me, so I got scared.

Quite charming! I love the spirit these two have…

Bonjour chère amie,

Vos toutous font partie de votre vie, de votre environnement… Il est normal que vous parliez d’eux ! Ils sont ravissants et ont une joie de vivre telle que cela fait du bien !
Gros bisous à vous.

Well, I shall just have to send Ghetto and Gibson an email (by the way what is the correct order to put them in? You know how you name your children on Christmas cars in order of age?). I think you must be totally nuts and love your blog all the more for it! Our dog is a member of the family and may daughter certainly has taken more photos taken of him than anyone else! Keep it up! A brocante loot shot is certainly just merchandise, without the addition of Ghetto lending a little modelling charm!

If Ghetto did not look so ridiculously adorable and Gibson the ever so je ne sais quoi….. I would agree with you and think that you have lost the plot…..shall I follow them on instagram perhaps not…..but I love them being a major part of your life on MFCH, and will continue to enjoy their antics..let’e hope they don’t sell them selves to the paparazzi!!

Congratulations you precious pups! They are adorable and remind me of my Rocky ( a golden ) and Bear (Westie). Look the pics and love their adventures. They could have their own book series for children! Happy weekend!

Anissa November 29, 2013 - 2:52 pm

Aah, The french country life is hard to beat.

Pamela November 29, 2013 - 3:59 pm

Like so many, I love everything about your blog! My dream world brought to life! I just had to ask if your rascal Ghetto’s been modeling without your knowledge. Check out Ballards website and check out the dog days prints! They seem to have captured his innocent look perfectly!

Yesterday, after dinner we were talking about my blog and my new friends in France. They are a little weirded out by bloggers, so I had to ease their fears. I tried to tell them if it were pre-internet we would be pen-pals. I had to pull up your site and introduce Gibson and Ghetto to the family. I had to tell about what you were doing and show them the horses and your loot shoots, and your garden. It no longer sounds weird. Now I will have to go to instagram to see what this is all about. 🙂

Colleen Taylor November 29, 2013 - 5:14 pm

Great idea to have them on instagram Sharon…I know of a pig by the name of Lulu that has her own facebook fan page, seriously. I’m still here & not going anywhere soon. XO

Paula November 29, 2013 - 5:54 pm

Oh, this is so funny and your dogs are really, really cute. I read and like all your posts but reading about Gibson and Ghetto always makes me smile. I totally agree they deserve to have an email address and their own Instagram page, why not? 🙂

Jennifer McCracken November 29, 2013 - 5:58 pm

Your dogs are adorable; obviously they add so much to your life! Not on instagram yet (embaressed to say), but this is prodding me to join!

Bonnie Schulte November 29, 2013 - 7:10 pm

I LOVE the sentence where you wrote, “that woman in France, the one with the horses in the garden…” great writing, made me laugh. Dogs most definitely should be involved in social media. Wheres their FB??? Upcoming Blog???
