Hot Stepper!

Hot Stepper!

Posted by Pia

Ever witness a human casually scamper across their driveway, sans sandals, on a hot summer day? Suddenly that care free stride becomes quite the dramatic interpretive dance- complete with colorful narrative and some spirited thrashing about.

Our New Kittens!

Posted by F&S

Yesterday, Martha dashed out to the Hamptons with Uncle Carlos and, of course, took G.K. and us with her.  There was very little time to post a new Daily Wag, so we are allowing the new kittens (yes – there are new kittens!) to blog for us today.  We’re happy to introduce you to Kublai …

When Martha bought the farm, it came with a charming little building called a corn crib.  The corn crib really isn’t used for much, but we all love how it looks in the landscape.  I should say that it really isn’t used for much, until now.

Additionally, even though fireworks are illegal in many places, there …

Recently, Uncle Carlos took us to a wonderful store in Stamford, Connecticut called Parrots and Company to get some supplies for our canaries.  We love visiting this shop because there are so many beautiful birds to look at.  On this particular visit, we struck up a conversation with a Congo African Grey parrot, who told …

Stopping for Pizza

One day, while we were out with Uncle Carlos and Laura Acuna, Carlos decided that he was in the mood for pizza.  After driving for a bit, he settled on Bambino’s Pizza.  Who doesn’t love the aroma of pizza in the oven?
