Meet Francesca

I entered this world on December 13, 2004, in Pinewood, Minnesota. I’m a bit older and certainly far wiser than Sharkey. Like Sharkey, I’m also friendly and quite curious, but I’m more cautious about letting my curiosity get me into trouble. I must admit that we do have fun together. I just know when to stop. Martha describes me as being a bit obsequious, but that’s just my ability to pull the wool over her eyes. I’m just clever! I do have a high opinion about myself, and my fashion sense is magnifique! In fact, Je suis fabuleuse (I am fabulous.)

Dear Daily Waggers,
We want to thank you all for reading and enjoying our blog.  Those who help us post it are taking a little rest this week and we decided to run a few from the past.  We’ll be back soon!
Sharkey and I were napping the other day and Martha had her Martha Sirius radio …

Motoring in Skylands II

Motoring in Skylands II

Posted by Francesca

Well, the weather improved during our last trip to Skylands, our home in Maine and Martha thought it would be a good idea to go for a ride in the picnic boat.  Sharkey and I usually run the show, but since Sharkey wasn’t with us, G.K. decided that he was going to be the first …

Being in Maine Without Sharkey

Being in Maine Without Sharkey

Posted by Francesca

The last time we went to Skylands, Martha thought it best that Sharkey remain back home at the farm.  Sharkey had a bug bite that she scratched too much and developed a rash on her neck.  Because we were concerned, G.K. and I licked her rash, but that just made things worse.  How were we …

We were driving with Uncle Carlos going past the tenant house when I remembered hearing something about washing the windows of that building.  Washing windows is loads of fun, especially when I sit back and watch Sharkey do all the work!

Exploring Bar Harbor

Exploring Bar Harbor

On Martha’s blog today, she posted a lot of beautiful photos of planting the giant urns on the Skylands terrace.  When the work was complete, Uncle Carlos suggested a drive to Bar Harbor so that Ryan could see some of the local flavor.  It’s always a fun town to visit.

New Plants for the Walkways

New Plants for the Walkways

Posted by Francesca

On a recent jaunt around the farm, Sharkey and I noticed many empty spaces along the stone paths where succulent plants once grew.  Granted, some of these paths are new, and need to be landscaped.  But, for the established paths, it’s far better to have succulents growing than weeds.

Tracking Wild Animals

Tracking Wild Animals

Posted by Francesca

On yesterday’s blog, I was out hunting for dogwood trees and found some in the woods.  After satisfying my dogwood urge, and since I was already in the woods, I decided to partake in some animal tracking, one of my favorite pastimes.  There are so many interesting scents to pick up and follow in the …

Searching For Dogwood

Searching For Dogwood

Posted by Francesca

There are so many flowering trees at our farm in Bedford, but for some reason, Martha hasn’t planted one of my favorite varieties, the dogwood.  I’ve been reading up on dogwood and from my findings, it seems that the bark of one of the European species, when boiled in water, was once use for washing …

Searching for Beauty in the Woods

Searching for Beauty in the Woods

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I were driving around in the Kawasaki recently in search of some beauty in the woods.  Sharkey was uncertain which road to take so we stopped and asked for directions and we finally found what we were looking for.
