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.)

The Old Prey Drive Kicks It Up A Tree - Er...Notch

Sharkey, G.K., and I were enjoying some time together outside when a squirrel was seeming to taunt me.  Frenchies don’t like to be taunted and I guess I got a little carried away.

Bath Time For Frenchies

Bath Time For Frenchies

Posted by Francesca

Yesterday was bath time for us, Frenchies.  You may recall that I don’t mind a good bath but Sharkey, on the other paw, kind of freaks out at the very mention of one.

As you may remember, G.K. was whisked away to another dog show and was supposed to return on Monday.  However, Karen Tracy didn’t bring him back until yesterday and we Frenchies missed him for another whole day.

Planting a New Rose Garden

We Frenchies were driving around the farm yesterday and we noticed a lot of activity in the new cutting garden, which used to be the vegetable garden.  The vegetable garden is being moved to the old cutting garden.  In case you aren’t confused enough, it seems that the large rose garden from our home in …

Every spring, I have a paw problem that is so irritating and annoying.  It’s an allergy that causes these horrible bulges between my toes and here’s my blog posting about it.

Wrestling GK With Bulldog Throws

Wrestling GK With Bulldog Throws

Like most dogs, GK loves to bask in the warm sun.  I admit, we Frenchies, also spend a good deal of time with this particular form of R&R.  The other day, GK seemed entirely too serene, so I decided to rouse him a bit.

Sharkey was feeling quite lazy yesterday, so I decided to go for a little jaunt.  Strolling past the stable, I noticed Betsy doing something to Rinze’s legs.  Of course, I had to investigate.

The Lawn Rakes Are Out!

We Frenchies were wondering what the farm crew has been up to, so we took a little walk to find out.  It’s so nice to think that winter is nearly over and that spring chores have begun.  However, more snow is expected today and that does not make us happy.
