In Search of the Perfect Cider Apple

In Search of the Perfect Cider Apple

Posted by Sharkey

Today on Martha’s blog, she posted about making apple cider again.  Franny was really interested in the whole process and thought that we should make some cider of our own.  I told her that I would pick the apples and wash them.  I found my favorite tree and picked a bunch, however, washing them was …

Franny and I were soaking up the warmth of the sun the other day when I suddenly realized something major was happening.  We, Frenchies, have had such an amazing summer and we hoped it would go on forever.  No such luck!

Modeling for Halloween

Modeling for Halloween

Martha wanted all of her pooches at the TV show recently so that we could model some frightfully fun pet costumes for the PetSmart Halloween Costume Contest.   While we were there, we got to visit with all of our TV friends.  It is always so much fun being the center of attention!

Decorating For Autumn

Posted by Francesca

Martha likes to grow all kinds of pumpkins, gourds, and squashes to use as autumn decorations.  All summer long, Sharkey and I have been watching them take shape on their vines.  Some are big and smooth and others are crooked and all covered with warts.  I think they’re all beautiful.  At long last, it was …

Here are the photos we submitted — along with …

Uncle Carlos came to visit yesterday.  It was a rainy day and we really wanted to get out of the house for a while.  He said that he would take us for a spin around the farm in the Kawasaki, one of our favorite things to do.  Come along for the ride!

Kitchen Surveillance Part Three

Kitchen Surveillance Part Three

Posted by Sharkey

Francesca and I were so successful nabbing Empress Tang and Princess Peony sabotaging Martha’s computer the other day by getting it all on video.  Don’t forget that we had other flip cams set up and now we have all the evidence we need to prove that we, Frenchies, are innocent of all these kitchen antics.  …

If you read Martha’s blog, then you know that she was home one day, a couple of weeks ago, partaking in a photo shoot for her magazine, Martha Stewart Living.  I was going through our blog photos and I realized that Franny and I forgot to post about that day.  So, here it is – …

Trying On Halloween Costumes

Just as Martha does, we simply adore Halloween: Every year, Sharkey and I work with Martha’s crafty Crafts Department crafters to devise new and ever more terrifying costumes. This year, we’ve got a whole new source of possibilities: Martha’s line of pet Halloween costumes for PetSmart! We tried on the whole collection, and when we …
