We Enter a Halloween Contest

Posted by F&S

Did you see us on Martha’s show yesterday? That was when we announced the costumes we were entering in the PetSmart Halloween Pet Photo Contest on Facebook: Sharkey decided she’d be a skeleton for Halloween, while Francesca would dress — not inappropriately! — as a devil. Here are the photos we submitted — along with …

Driving With Uncle Carlos

Posted by Francesca

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.  …

Better Late Than Never

Posted by Sharkey

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 – …

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.

Let Them Eat Cake, or Not

Posted by Francesca

The other day, Laura Acuna, the housekeeper, needed to go to the store, so we piled into the car and drove her there.  However, the car was running low on gas and we had to pull into a gas station along the way.  Check this out!

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

I was visiting the offices at the Starrett Lehigh building in New York City the other day because I was called in for a photo shoot.  Francesca and Sharkey have become a bit irritated with how popular I’ve become, but I can’t help it – people just flock to me!

Sweaters Needed for Shelter Animals

Sweaters Needed for Shelter Animals

Posted by Pia

While we humans may welcome the change of seasons with a favorite fall cardigan or cozy up with a blanket knitted by grandma, we must not forget that dogs in shelters get cold too. Many shelter animals are kept in outdoor kennels or uninsulated enclosures. While this may be comfortable for most months, the …

G.K. Goes Apple Picking

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

If you’ve been reading Martha’s blog, then you know that it’s been an amazing season for apples here at the farm.  All the animals who eat apples are certainly getting their fill.  And there are all sorts of great smelling apple desserts being made in the kitchen.  Martha wanted apples delivered to the TV studio …
