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.

I'm No Turkey!

I'm No Turkey!

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I were watching Martha’s show leading up to Thanksgiving and Martha shared some holiday cheer of photos that viewers sent in.  One was of a silly Frenchie who was pretending to be a Thanksgiving turkey all ready for carving.  Martha actually said she wanted me to do the same thing.  I don’t think …

The other day when Karen and Jan came to pick up G.K. and take him to the dog show, we had a surprise visitor!  I thought it was just Francesca at first, but on closer investigation, I thought differently.

Martha loves Halloween and every year she outdoes herself.  For her Halloween Special this year, she and her talented TV crew created a Haunted House so scary, that even I was too afraid to go in!  Luckily, Francesca and crafter Kristin St. Clair showed me that it was all for fun!
If you missed Martha’s Haunted …

Apple Cider Mischief

Apple Cider Mischief

We, Frenchies, love spending time with our Uncle Carlos so, of course, we jumped at the chance to help him make apple cider!  I was a bit disappointed that Franny was not her usual energetic self.  But our brother, G.K., sure knows how to light a fire under her!

A Plant Inspection

A Plant Inspection

Posted by Sharkey

After Hurricane Irene and all of the subsequent torrential rainfall, I thought it would be a good idea to inspect all of the tropical plants to see how they survived their quick move to the greenhouse.  I also wanted to see if they were put back where they belong outdoors.  Francesca is always up for …

Dealing Out The Dog Pack Oracle Cards

Dealing Out The Dog Pack Oracle Cards

Posted by Sharkey

It’s been raining a lot lately and Francesca and I are scrambling to find indoor activities to keep us busy.  Looking around the house, I came upon an unusual deck of cards called, “The Dog Pack Oracle Cards.”  Apparently, you use them much the same way as Tarot cards.  Going through the deck, we discovered …

Relief for Sharkey's Bee Stings

You probably all know by now that Martha keeps honeybees and Franny and I are on pretty good terms with those little creatures.  If you respect honeybees and let them go about their business, they won’t bother you.  Well, I had an unfortunate experience the other day, with what I thought were honeybees, and now …

Horseback Riding With Martha

Horseback Riding With Martha

Posted by Sharkey

Hey, everybody!  I’m back and feeling fine.  I just had a nasty bug bite, which is better now.  Yikes!  I hope everyone is staying calm and cool.  This heat is terrible!  Well, I was lounging around the other day, wondering what I could do for amusement, and then Martha and Betsy came riding by on …

Yesterday, Francesca and I were sitting on a stonewall when I noticed some commotion in a nearby smoke tree.  Francesca seemed to know just what it was and gave me quite a lesson on the subject.

Hunting For Wild Mushrooms in Maine

Hunting For Wild Mushrooms in Maine

When we were last in Maine, I took these photos, but misplaced my camera.  Good thing that Martha found it and packed it with her things to take back to Bedford.  So, here’s another blog from Maine – better late than never!
