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.

Upon further exploration around the house, Franny and I discovered something most unusual.  It was the cutest little tin filled with the cutest little contents.  And you know, anything having to do with French bulldogs is simply superb!

During the holidays we went with Martha down to the stable, where we found Martyn.  The other Friesians were outside playing and we wanted to keep Martyn company for a while.  He is such a great friend and a beautiful horse.

You know how curious Francesca and I are about all things. Recently, we found ourselves pondering a little creature called a woolly bear caterpillar. We heard somewhere that these fuzzy things can actually predict the weather. Imagine that! Maybe they can find employment with the Weather Channel!

Yesterday, Franny and I were outside playing when we heard a lot of banging noises coming from the stables.  It’s always a good idea to check these things out, so we trotted on down there.  You know how curious we are.

The First Snow

The First Snow

Last Saturday night, we had our very first snowfall of the season.  It wasn’t very much snow, but it was quite pretty.  A thin blanket covered the farm and Francesca and I headed out for a little winter adventure.  We’ll be sure to show you more snow pictures the next time it falls.

Close Encounters with Vivaldi the Cat

Close Encounters with Vivaldi the Cat

Vivaldi the cat is one sly fellow. He is always doing things to get under our skin. Just the other day, I found him all sprawled out on top of a nice soft pile of our clothes. Martha keeps our dog wardrobe neatly folded in baskets in a room off the kitchen called the servery. …

Regular readers of our blog know how much Francesca and I love to chase animals.  Yesterday, we were out and about and I realized that we hadn’t seen the donkeys for a while.  We located the paddock that they were in and I proceeded to have one yelping good time.  As usual, Francesca stayed on …

Feeding the birds

A lot of things are changing at the farm along with the season.  For example, I discovered a long line of shiny barrels in the carport and I just had to know what they were for.  I finally got Francesca interested in having a look and of course, we wanted to get in on the …

The weather was so nice the other day and we Frenchies spent a good part of it outside. The sun was shining warmly and we went to one of our favorite vantage points – The Great Wall of Bedford – right off the terrace overlooking the farm.

Shaun and Wilmer are really working hard in the gardens, getting them ready for winter. Francesca and I were out chasing squirrels the other day and decided to take a break from that and help out with some of the chores. You know we’re such good workers and our help is always appreciated.
