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.

Good Food for the Chickens

Posted by Sharkey

When I was outside the other morning, I came upon a large bag of greens just sitting on a wall.  I thought that maybe Chef Pierre had forgotten about the food he picked in the vegetable garden for Martha’a dinner party when I realized that the bag contained scraps for the chickens.  Francesca, G.K., and …

As you know, we Frenchies are going through a rough patch.  Francesca will have her lid sewn shut for another couple of weeks, which means that she’ll also have her eye button and cone collar.  My dewclaw issue is healing well but I still need to have my paw bandaged, which is an issue if …

Last month on Martha’s television show, an entire episode was devoted to Etsy.  As you may know, Etsy is an online marketplace where people all over the world run virtual shops to sell their handmade or vintage items, art and supplies.  Etsy member, Jennifer Thornington, was at that show and presented Martha with a very …

Before I hurt my dewclaw and needed surgery, Francesca and I were making our usual rounds of the farm, looking for anything new and different.  It was difficult for Franny because she had classic tunnel vision due to wearing the cone-shaped color, so I guided her around.  It’s good to help each other out.

Francesca's Eye Problem Update

Francesca's Eye Problem Update

Posted by Sharkey

On yesterday’s blog, Francesca revealed that she is having an eye problem.  After a few different visits to the vet, we think we are on the right track for healing, what appears to be, a rather serious corneal ulcer.  We are all watching this thing like a hawk to make sure it’s not a progressive …

Francesca and I were walking past the donkey paddock the other day, when I spotted something a little strange.  Billie didn’t look quite like herself and I wanted to find out what was going on, as I have no qualms about entering the donkey paddock.

After G.K.’s big win at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, it took a little while for all the fanfare to settle down.  The three of us dogs had just settled back into our normal lifestyles, when I was informed that G.K. was hitting the road again to attend another show.

By now you all must know that we, dogs, went to New York City to appear on Martha’s television show.  Of course, we had a couple of adventures along the way.  At last, here is a blog about the show!

Willows and Signs of Spring

Posted by Sharkey

Even though it’s been a rather mild winter, Francesca and I are antsy for spring to arrive.  It’s still February, but if you look hard enough, there are signs of spring in many places around the farm.  The other day, I fired up the engine of the Kawasaki, I went and found Francesca paying a …

Why do we Have a Topiary Donkey?

Posted by Sharkey

We dogs were sitting at the kitchen door the other day watching the world go by, when I spotted a very strange thing out in the courtyard.  After investigating, I found out that this object was sent from a place in Brooklyn, NY called Dig Gardens.   Now we just have to figure out why?
