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.

Now that G.K. has come to live with us, there is very little rest for the weary.  He is most rambunctious and he is certainly curious.  Franny and I know that Martha waited a very long time for this puppy, a grandson of Paw Paw’s, and we feel a huge responsibility to keep him safe …

Our brother, Ghenghis Khan, G.K. for short, comes from royal lineage.  His grandfather was the one and only Paw Paw and his father is the great Maddox, currently the number one Chow Chow in the United States.  Francesca and I have to admit that we are proud to share our home with a pooch of …

A good job for us

A good job for us

The other day, a very large crate was delivered to the farm.  Franny and I were looking for something to do when we spotted Gyurme outside.  We were so happy that he had a job for us and we especially loved that it required tools.  We, Frenchies, are very crafty, after all.

Things seem to be getting a little out of hand when it comes to our new brother, G.K.  Martha needed us at the TV studio to be part of the show and G.K. wasn’t invited.  Well, wouldn’t you know it – that pup has a lot of gumption and clever know how.  And he’s also …

Yesterday, we told you how G.K. went to visit the donkeys and how they became instant friends.  That dog sure has a lot of confidence and isn’t bashful one bit.  It’s kind of amazing just how curious and friendly he is.  Take a look at this little adventure he went on.

Bath time with G.K

Bath time with G.K

We Frenchies needed a bath the other day and, as you may know, we’re not too keen on baths.  I can’t tell you exactly why, but just the thought of getting one makes me shake like the dickens.  Anyway, Martha thought it would be a good idea to have G.K., the new pup, watch how …

The other day was really windy and rainy. As much as we animals wanted to go outside and play, the weather made that rather impossible. Our new brother, Ghenghis Khan (G.K. for short), wanted to go outside very badly, and I had to give him all the reasons why it would be a …

This past weekend, Franny, Ghenghis Khan, and I traveled with Martha and Uncle Carlos up to the beautiful state of Vermont.  Martha wanted to visit a place called Viking Nordic Center to learn about grooming trails for cross country skiing.  While she was having a lesson about that, Franny and I decided to go off …

This past weekend, Martha dressed us in our Lion Brand Yarn www.lionbrand.com sweaters and told Carlos to get the car ready for a road trip.  She wanted to drive to East Hampton to check on the house.  Of course, there were stops to make along the way, including one to The Home Depot.  We, Frenchies, …
