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.)

On Martha’s blog today, she is giving her blog readers a tour of a great nursery called Mariani Gardens,  located in Armonk, New York. When she visits there, we often accompany her. We love it because it’s so colorful and there’s so much great stuff to see.

Baking a cake for Fernando

You may recall how Sharkey and I love to bake.  When we were told that Fernando, who works at our farm, was celebrating a birthday, we decided to get busy in the kitchen.  We wanted to throw a little party to show our appreciation and what we baked for Fernando turned out really well.

You know how we Frenchies love to run and we did a lot of running on all the gravel drives up in Skylands, our home in Maine. Martha thought our footpads looked a little tender and she said we should have a doggie pedicure. Uncle Carlos took us to the laundry room in …
