In Search of Color on a Cloudy Day

In Search of Color on a Cloudy Day

Posted by F&S

We, Frenchies, were outside the other day, feeling as bleak as the weather.  The sky was gray and the world seemed the same.  However, our moods lifted when we decided to go out and explore.  It seems you just have to look on the bright side.

Hunting For Cats

Hunting For Cats

Every evening, before Laura Acuna, the housekeeper, leaves for the day, she has to hunt down all of the cats and make sure they are inside for the night.  She sometimes asks us, Frenchies, to locate them, since they like to hide so much.  We’ve got to tell you, cats are so uncooperative!

We, Frenchies, saw Shaun and Wilmer planting succulents along the stone paths the other day and it seemed like they needed some help.  Like so many things in this world, gardening comes naturally to us and our help was greatly appreciated.

Yesterday, we blogged about driving to Maine with Uncle Carlos and a trailer load of plants.  We dogs had a great time in the car, listening to Carlos’s favorite music, Los Melodicos, and the hours seemed to fly by.  After stretching a bit and tending to some doggy business, we had to unload the trailer …

We, Frenchies, were chasing one of our squirrels the other day and it ran up a pretty styrax tree outside of the blog studio.  I have to admit that we get carried away when it comes to squirrels and I guess we did a no-no.  Have a look.

The other day, between raindrops, we Frenchies picked some amazing tree peonies to decorate the house.  We thought we would go back to the border to gather some more, but there’s one big problem – it’s been raining and oh, so dreary!

As Martha wrote on her blog today, we’ve been getting much too much rain and we, dogs, couldn’t get outside too much to explore.  Many things are blooming, or beginning to bloom in the garden, including all the allium, and we finally got to enjoy their beauty.

We, Frenchies, were wandering around the farm the other day, when we saw Betsy leading Ramon out to a paddock.  Something looked different about that Friesian so we went to find out what it could be.

A New PetSmart Ad and 20% Off

A New PetSmart Ad and 20% Off

Posted by F&S

When PetSmart called to tell us about a new 20%-off promotion on Martha Stewart Pets good through May 22, we generously offered our services for a photo shoot, only to be told we wouldn’t be needed! Yes, it’s true. Apparently the Powers That Be decided that Martha’s spring collection of doggie rain gear for PetSmart …

Well, Easter came and went and we certainly had a really great time!  We, Frenchies, love all of the festivities, with the exception of those bunny ears, of course.  Speaking of bunnies! – Martha gave us a very interesting job the other day.  Take a look at this.
