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.)

We were making the rounds with Ryan, the gardener, the other day.  He took us into the hoophouse where he keeps Martha’s potted citrus trees for the winter.  I happened to notice that the clivia plants were blooming.  Clivia are such happy looking flowers!

Thank you to all of my Glue Squad buddies for your concern and kind wishes.  Yeah, being locked up in a crate isn’t the best thing that can happen to a dog, but if it’s got to be, winter isn’t too bad for it to happen.

As you know, I’ve been confined to the house with my neck issues and I haven’t been able to do most of the things that I so love doing.  Sharkey has been doing a great job holding the fort down and reporting on the Daily Wag.  I suppose with all the added responsibility, she might …

As you may know, I am being confined to a crate for a total of 30 days.  I must try to remain calm and inactive so that my bulging neck disc has a chance to heal.  However, it would be helpful if I had a little more in the way of entertainment.

Sharkey and I were in our blog studio monitoring comments from all of our Glue Squad buddies on The Daily Wag.  What a great group of friends!  Anyway, I got distracted by something moving on the floor and I went to have a better look.  Talk about being in the wrong place at the wrong …

Spa Time For Frenchies!

We are very active French bulldogs and we lead fascinating lives.  Sometimes, on our outdoor adventures, we get into some pretty funky-smelling stuff, which isn’t acceptable within the confines of our home.  Why do dogs like stinky stuff anyway?

For the past few blogs, Dr. Pia has been talking a lot about adopted pets and being thankful.  She is also participating once again in Petside’s yearly blog event, sharing great information with other bloggers about this year’s chosen topic, adoption.  Although we Frenchies were neither rescued nor adopted, we know that many members of …

Today on Martha’s blog, she posted a lot of photos taken at an estate sale in Connecticut.  She told Uncle Carlos to drive the van and pick something up.  So, we all piled in and drove to the sale.

It’s no secret that we Frenchies love to chase squirrels.  This autumn, there are so many of those critters all over the farm – a real population explosion.  We like to feet our feathered friends and those squirrels really take advantage of the situation.
