Sharkey is a Basket Case!

Sharkey and I were enjoying the great outdoors when I decided to give squirrel chasing a rest and explore a little nearby building.  The contents were quite amazing and it got my wheels turning.  Of course, getting Sharkey to cooperate is another story.

What's Down the Squirrel Hole Anyway?

Sharkey and I were outside yesterday when quite suddenly, a very strange sensation came over us.  It was almost savage and we wanted squirrel.  Hunting is fun but it is also difficult.  Good thing we are fed on a regular basis.

G.K. Stops to Smell the Peonies

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

As you know, Martha likes to grow all kinds of flowers and she is especially fond of her peony bed.  In fact, I am told that she hosts a peony party every spring just to show them off.  I’ve been trying to learn about everything growing on the farm so I went to study the …

We Frenchies were sound asleep the other day having a nice and lazy nap dreaming all about squirrels and the great chase.  Of course, something interrupted that joy and woke us from our slumbers.  It turns out that it was a rather pleasant interruption.

The other day, I went to find my friends, the donkeys.  I like playing ball with Clive, Rufus, and Billy but they were not outside in their paddock.  After searching for a bit, I did locate them in the stable.  Who knew you had to make an appointment to play?

I know that I am an adorable and regal-looking chow.  But, did you know that beneath all of my handsome appeal there is a very brilliant techie?  I don’t know how it happened, but I suppose I was just born this way.  Anyway, I’ve been helping to iron out little technology issues around the farm …

As you may know, Martha is traveling in a far away country called Malaysia.  While she is away, we decided to snoop a little and see what Martha keeps in her kitchen drawers and cabinets.  Fascinating!  We wanted to surprise her as well and measured the  inside of the drawers so that we could have …

On a recent afternoon, I found myself alone since Francesca and G.K. were busy having a nap.  I just didn’t feel like joining them, so I went outside and hopped on a Kawasaki for a little spin around the farm.  There are always new and wonderful things to see.

Tree Peonies Galore But Not a Single One to Pick!

Posted by Sharkey

Martha grows many, many peonies at the farm.  There is an enormous garden of herbaceous peonies and a long bed of exotic tree peonies.  The fragrance of these flowers is intoxicating and I wanted to pick a lovely bouquet to enjoy in the house.  Franny became very bossy when I suggested this and we had …
