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.

Francesca behind the wheel

Posted by Sharkey

Guess what Francesca and I did yesterday? We went to the local supermarket and found out that they made a special grocery cart just for us. Come and take a look.

Meeting new friends at the dog park

Posted by Sharkey

Francesca and I heard about a canine park near our home in Katonah called Beaver Dam Park. We wanted to find out what it was like so we went there for a little visit. It is really quite a nice place and I can see why dogs like to go there. There …

Sharkey Helps Out in the Berry Patch

Posted by Sharkey

Martha’s berries are beginning to ripen, which means pick, pick, pick. Francesca isn’t feeling well from a bout of that dreaded lyme disease and she needs to stay calm and cool inside. I, however, wanted to lend a paw in the berry patch and help with the picking. Martha really likes red …

Bus ride in the Hamptons

Posted by Sharkey

The train ride to Montauk was so exciting and we had a good time walking around the village. We’re so lucky that Carlos takes us to so many places and that we get to experience so many new things. If you’re wondering how we got back home from Montauk, just take a look …

A busy time in East Hampton

Posted by Sharkey

Last weekend Martha had a busy time in East Hampton.  Uncle Carlos was with us and, as you know, he loves to take us walking and exploring.  The weather wasn’t’ very nice and we had to dress in our rain gear.  We had a good time anyway.

Strange events at the TV studio

Posted by Sharkey

Martha took us to the television studio where she had to tape something for The Whatever Girls show, Whatever Martha! It was taking a longer time than anticipated so we tried to take a little nap. Of course, things don’t always go as expected…..

Hiking at Great Head and Road Kill!

Yesterday, Francesca told you about our hike at Jordan Pond and today, I get to tell you about hiking at Great Head, also in Acadia National Park in Maine. This trail loops around the perimeter of the small peninsula called Great Head and takes you up to amazing pink granite cliffs. We did …

Sir Frosty thinks he is a hunter

Posted by Sharkey

Francesca and I were lounging on the terrace the other day when we spotted Sir Frosty, one of our cat cousins.  He’s kind of shy and we don’t see him very often.  We had ourselves a good laugh because it appears that Sir Frosty doesn’t seem to me much of a hunter.  Maybe we should …

A visit to the Plaza Hotel... sort of

Posted by Sharkey

Yesterday, we told you about our adventures in Central Park in New York City.  When we left the park, Carlos took us to the famous historic landmark, the Plaza Hotel.  Of course, only the tiniest of dogs are allowed inside that beautiful hotel and since we are just too large in stature, we stayed outdoors …

Francesca thinks she is so clever

Posted by Sharkey

Francesca thought she was pretty clever the other day, getting involved with that garden tour.  Honestly, she can be so self-important sometimes.  But you may have noticed that she lost interest before the tour group got to the pergola and I’ll be happy to take you there.  Martha’s pergola is a long, freestanding structure of …
