Finding Safety in an Apple Tree

Posted by F&S

In our never-ending quest to be crackerjack squirrel chasers, we tore across the farm after one the other day.  We were just inches away from its tail, when the darn thing darted and made a beeline for the hollow of an old apple tree.  You’ll get yours yet, squirrel!

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?

As promised, here are some great pics of our ‘canine readers’- including the self-named ‘Glue Squad,’ a great crew of regulars who ‘meet’ here in the comments section each day. They are loyal friends to each other and to us at the DW- always offering lots of pooch-loving support and encouragement to their fellow …

We Frenchies, were tucked away in our beds in the kitchen, when we overheard the cats in the other room having quite a conversation.  Bartok was rattling off all sorts of facts about the birds and it actually seemed like he knew what he was talking about!

There are less than two weeks until G.K. makes his big debut at The Westminster Kennel Club dog show.  We, Frenchies, are hoping for the best, of course, and in the meantime, we are seeing to some of G.K.’s basic grooming needs.  A dog must look his or her best at Westminster!

I was wandering around the house the other day when I realized that the fur balls were nowhere to be found.  They usually drape themselves all over the furniture, but I couldn’t find a single cat anywhere.  That’s when I thought I’d go to the basement laundry room and have a look down there.

I recently shared the story of fashion photographer extraordinaire, Richard Phibbs, focusing his lens on the plight of shelter animals. Having now had the good fortune to spend a day with Phibbs, his crew and the NY shelter staff- who he very accurately described as amazing- I’m here to share my account of ’shelter …

Last week, Francesca blogged about me travelling to Maryland to compete in another dog show.  With the Westminster Kennel Club Show quickly approaching, my breeder, Karen Tracy and my handler, Jan Kolnik want me to get as much experience as possible.  Here are Karen’s photos showing what happened in Maryland.

As you may know by now, I love playing with our miniature donkeys, Clive, Rufus, and Billie.  The other day, I was running in their paddock trying to get them to play with me, but they said that they had something important to do in the stable.  At first I thought they were just brushing …

The other day, Franny and I went outside in hopes of doing a little squirrel chasing.  One of the best places to find squirrels at the farm is under the bird feeders, where there is usually a free meal waiting for them.  On that particular day, however, we came upon a sorry scene.
