Homemade Dog Food For Us!

Posted by F&S

We Frenchies, and G.K., have been put on new diets because of some allergy issues.  We had been eating a mix of premium canned and dry food, but because our allergies persisted, Martha wanted to try something new and different.  After consulting with our veterinarian, Martha is now cooking for us and we love it!

Hide and Seek

It was such a beautiful day at the farm yesterday and we, Frenchies, were outdoors enjoying all the splendor.  For amusement, we decided to start a game of hide and seek, but of course, one of us couldn’t follow the rules.

Hunting Canaries? We Don't Think So!

While we were walking around East Hampton, we went past the Town Pond, and our eyes nearly bugged out of our heads!  The color of the water was alarmingly green.  As you can imagine, we were extremely curious and struck up a conversation with the resident swan.

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.

We were driving with Uncle Carlos going past the tenant house when I remembered hearing something about washing the windows of that building.  Washing windows is loads of fun, especially when I sit back and watch Sharkey do all the work!
