Meet Sharkey

I was born on February 18, 2005, in Trappe, Maryland. While my personality is laidback and easygoing, I’m always ready for a good adventure. If I see something I need to chase, like a squirrel, for example, I’m out the door and across the field without hesitation. I also really love to intimidate the donkeys even though a kick from them would probably really hurt. Francesca complains that I’m much too spontaneous and daring, but I just really like to have fun. I think Franny believes that I’m just not as smart as she is, but she is a bit of a snob.

New Succulents at the Farm!

New Succulents at the Farm!

Posted by Sharkey

Francesca is healing a little problem with her eye and she needs to rest indoors.  Yesterday, I ventured outside and noticed that Shaun was digging along the stone pathway.  I saw that he was planting new succulents and I jumped in to help with the chore.  It’s very gratifying to help around the farm.

How Annoying is Vivaldi?

How Annoying is Vivaldi?

Posted by Sharkey

It was a beautiful spring day and we were all outside enjoying the warmth of the sun.  I was just zoning out, relishing the quiet solitude, when all of a sudden, Vivaldi the cat, started acting very strangely.  I just don’t get cats.  They’re either totally aloof or totally in your face.

Now that spring has finally arrived, it’s so much fun being outdoors.  Martha has made certain that the farm is a beautiful place to meander around.  When all the flowers start to bloom, it’s just breathtaking!  We, Frenchies, really love the daffodil border.  Come and see what we picked for Martha the other day.

Check Out What's Growing in the Cold House

Posted by Sharkey

In our ever-present quest for adventure, Franny and I wandered over to the cold house, where vegetables are planted right in the very fertile ground.  It’s always interesting to see what is growing there and sometimes I wish that I could actually eat the stuff.  However, I am told that people are people and dogs …

Maintaining a Stone Wall

Maintaining a Stone Wall

Posted by Sharkey

The weather was so beautiful yesterday and a lot of our household clan wandered outdoors to enjoy the sunshine.  It seems that the wall around Martha’s patio is a favorite spot to congregate and like Martha, I want to be sure that the wall will be around for many, many years.

We, Frenchies, Help Hang the Screens

Now that spring has arrived, the grounds crew has been very busy with all of the spring chores.  One major job is taking down the storm windows and replacing them with the screens.  Because Franny and I are never concerned about getting our paws dirty, we are always ready to chip in and help.  No …

Grooming a Horse is a Big Job!

Grooming a Horse is a Big Job!

Posted by Sharkey

In my attempt to be ever helpful, I went down to the stables the other day because I heard that it was grooming time for Meindert.  Unlike my little Frenchie body, a horse is quite a large thing to groom and I wanted to help Betsy out.  It took a while, but I got the …

The Chicken Show

The Chicken Show

Posted by Sharkey

Franny was still taking a nap when I got up from mine and felt like reading.  I noticed a stack of new books in the kitchen.  Much to my surprise, they were all about chickens and other types of poultry.  These books were quite eye opening and I have a whole new appreciation for these …

Swinging is a Blast!

Swinging is a Blast!

Posted by Sharkey

We were out and about with Uncle Carlos the other day when we came upon a playground, which had swings for kids.  Franny and I started wondering, why should kids have all the fun?  Why not dogs, too?  It turns out that swinging is a blast and Franny even started reciting poetry.  I think I’ll …

Hey Donkeys!  It's Spring!

Hey Donkeys! It's Spring!

Posted by Sharkey

Spring is in the air and that makes me so happy.  I decided to trot around the farm and tell all of my friends the good news, thinking that everyone would be as enthusiastic as I am.  Little did I know that the donkeys have their own opinions about warm weather.
