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.)

Inspecting the Bald Cypress Trees

Inspecting the Bald Cypress Trees

Posted by Francesca

Yesterday was not a nice day at the farm, as it was rainy and chilly.  We, Frenchies, needed to go outside and I had to find our warm rain jackets.  While we were outdoors, Sharkey and I became concerned about a grove of trees and made an inspection.

G.K.'s Latest Prizes!

G.K.'s Latest Prizes!

Posted by Francesca

I’m sure you’re all wondering how G.K. fared at the latest dog shows he attended.  The answer is, splendidly!  Not only did he win best of class for males and females, he also beat six champions to win the Breed, and get a four-point major to become an American Kennel Club champion!  Plus, he was …

Trouble With Sasa's Shoe

Trouble With Sasa's Shoe

Posted by Francesca

As you know, we always like to visit our friends on the farm and we happened to see Sasa right after he and Betsy came back from one of their rides along the Bedford Riding Lanes.  We found out that Sasa experienced a little problem along the way.

Searching for Autumn Flowers

Searching for Autumn Flowers

Alas!  Summer is officially over as the first day of autumn was on Friday.  Yesterday you got to see some of our new fall wardrobe, which we will be happy to wear when the temperatures start dropping.  Well, we’re not quite ready to let go of summer and all of its beauty, so we decided …

Our Ferryboat Adventure

Our Ferryboat Adventure

Posted by Francesca

As you know from reading yesterday’s Daily Wag, we were at our home in East Hampton, Long Island last weekend.  As its name suggests, Long Island is indeed long and at its eastern end, the island is split into the South Fork, where the Hamptons are, and the North Fork.  Martha wanted to visit someone …

What Chew Doing?

What Chew Doing?

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I love to share our many adventures but sometimes, it really is just a dog’s life.  And a dog’s life involves a lot of chewing and licking!

Why do Cats Sleep so Much?

Why do Cats Sleep so Much?

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I always wonder why cats sleep so much.  Do you know it’s estimated that felines will sleep two-thirds of their lives away?  That seems like such a waste of time!  Now dogs, on the other hand, are much more active and lead far more interesting lives.  And we, dogs, only sleep, on average, …

Staghorn Ferns at the Farm

Staghorn Ferns at the Farm

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I were headed outdoors to play when I stopped to look at the very interesting plants that hang on Martha’s front porch.  Martha has many kinds of tropical ferns growing in pots, but what caught my attention was her collection of staghorn ferns, which really don’t require pots or potting soil.

Weeding With Guyrme

Weeding With Guyrme

Posted by Francesca

William Shakespeare wrote, “Sweet flowers are slow and weeds make haste,” and for anyone who gardens, you know exactly what that means.  Did you know that a single weed can produce as many as 250,000 seeds?  Some of you might say, “Why bother gardening?”  But that’s just a defeatist’s attitude.  We, Frenchies, like to weed …

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!
There have been some strange things going on in our kitchen lately.  Martha’s been complaining …
