Check Out What's Growing in the Cold House

Check Out What's Growing in the Cold House

Posted by Sharkey

In our ever-present quest for adventure, Franny and I wandered over to the cold house, where vegetables are planted right in the very fertile ground.  It’s always interesting to see what is growing there and sometimes I wish that I could actually eat the stuff.  However, I am told that people are people and dogs …

Exploring the Hoop House

Exploring the Hoop House

Posted by F&S

We, Frenchies, noticed that the hoop house’s door was open the other day, so we decided to go in and have a look.  Voila!  That’s where all the beautiful tropical plants that grace the sunken garden have been stored for the cold months of winter.  We love those tropical specimens and we can’t wait for …

G.K. Takes a Look Around the Farm

G.K. Takes a Look Around the Farm

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

After days of rain, it finally feels like spring has arrived.  At least, that’s what everyone tells me.  You see, this is my very first spring and I’ve got to say that so far, I love it!  I came to live at the farm during winter, when things looked very different.  I really enjoy being …

Grooming a Horse is a Big Job!

Grooming a Horse is a Big Job!

Posted by Sharkey

In my attempt to be ever helpful, I went down to the stables the other day because I heard that it was grooming time for Meindert.  Unlike my little Frenchie body, a horse is quite a large thing to groom and I wanted to help Betsy out.  It took a while, but I got the …

Swinging is a Blast!

Swinging is a Blast!

Posted by Sharkey

We were out and about with Uncle Carlos the other day when we came upon a playground, which had swings for kids.  Franny and I started wondering, why should kids have all the fun?  Why not dogs, too?  It turns out that swinging is a blast and Franny even started reciting poetry.  I think I’ll …

Hey Donkeys!  It's Spring!

Hey Donkeys! It's Spring!

Posted by Sharkey

Spring is in the air and that makes me so happy.  I decided to trot around the farm and tell all of my friends the good news, thinking that everyone would be as enthusiastic as I am.  Little did I know that the donkeys have their own opinions about warm weather.

Dreaming of springtime

Dreaming of springtime

Posted by Sharkey

I was outdoors last week, dreaming of springtime, when I happened to see Fernando busy at work.  He was getting the pergola ready for some touch ups, before all the plants begin to grow and climb.  You may recall that I really love this pergola and all of the blooms that it supports.  Therefore, I …

What Hides Beneath all of G.K.'s Fur

What Hides Beneath all of G.K.'s Fur

Posted by Sharkey

Yesterday we, Frenchies, were sleeping peacefully, when we were awaked by the sound of running water.  We looked over to the sink only to see a strange and skinny little animal being bathed.  On closer inspection, we discovered that it was a dog, but we couldn’t imagine why another new dog would be in our …

Rules of the Bed

Rules of the Bed

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I have been working hard making G.K. feel welcomed.  Well, maybe not so much Franny.  Getting used to a dog brother is a big adjustment and you know how territorial dogs can be.  Franny is very set in her ways and she’s had to learn to back off considerably.  Take a look at …

G.K. Visits the Chickens

G.K. Visits the Chickens

Posted by Francesca

G.K. is a very curious little Chow Chow. He wonders about many things and he asks very good questions. You probably know that Martha likes her eggs really fresh and even raises her own hens. The eggs get collected daily and are delivered to the kitchen and placed in a large bowl. …
