A purple July

Sharkey and I took a break from taping our new baking show – ha-ha! We went outside and stopped to smell the flowers. We noticed that many flowers in Martha’s garden are various shades of purple. We’ll have to ask her about that.

The Frenchie Chef

Posted by Sharkey

Yesterday, Franny and I blogged about how hot it’s been outside at the farm.  Because of the intense heat, Martha wants us to spend most of the day inside so that we don’t get over heated.  To entertain ourselves during this confinement, we decided to shoot our own baking show.  We set up the necessary …

We Frenchies need a vacation and we are taking one week off from blogging.  We decided to go through our archives and post some of our favorite blogs for when we are away.  We hope you will enjoy these blogs as much as we do.

Negotiating a Bonus

Posted by F&S

As you know, we Frenchies have been working overtime. Not that that’s a bad thing because we rather enjoy all the attention. However, Martha always says that hard work should not go unrewarded, so we decided to pay Maureen, the business manager in Bedford, a little visit.

The other day when Franny and I were outside, I spied something bright red sitting out in one of the fields.  Of course, being a most curious Frenchie, I trotted out to see what it was.  I was very surprised to find one of the new items from Martha’s PetSmart line.  Please be patient, dear …

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

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.
