Canines, Collaboration and Calendars...

Posted by Pia

Why a calendar makes a great gift is basically a no-brainer- it’s both useful and you can invariably find one to fit the specific interests of it’s intended recipient. That much you already know… That said, I have NEVER been so excited about receiving or gifting a calendar as I am about the …

Inspecting the Bald Cypress Trees

Posted by Francesca

Yesterday was not a nice day at the farm, as it was rainy and chilly.  We, Frenchies, needed to go outside and I had to find our warm rain jackets.  While we were outdoors, Sharkey and I became concerned about a grove of trees and made an inspection.

I’m sure you’re all wondering how G.K. fared at the latest dog shows he attended.  The answer is, splendidly!  Not only did he win best of class for males and females, he also beat six champions to win the Breed, and get a four-point major to become an American Kennel Club champion!  Plus, he was …

At long last, the new greenhouse for storing all of the tropical plants during the cold months has been completed.  It was a lot of work building it and even more work moving all of the plants into it.  Ryan and Wilmer have it nicely organized and they can now focus on caring for the …

The Frenchies Want to be Show Dogs

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

It’s beginning to be clear that I, G.K., have the makings of a true champion.  I’m breaking into the dog show circuit and I’m winning!  I was watching Sharkey and Francesca the other day acting very strangely.  They seem to have a misconception about what really goes on at a dog show.  I think Karen …

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.

Now that G.K. is a champion and brought home his first blue ribbons, he’s off to Syracuse, New York for another competition.  His breeder, Karen Tracy of Pazzazz Chows, and his handler, Jan Kolnik, came to the farm yesterday to chauffeur our Ghenghis Khan to hopefully, another win.  We’ll keep you posted!

Have you ever had the olfactory experience of smelling the fruit of the ginkgo biloba tree?  Let us tell you something – even for us, Frenchies, who like funky aromas, from time to time, that fruit is pretty rancid!  We’d love to know what you think about it.
