A Visit to Parrots and Company

Posted by F&S

Recently, Uncle Carlos took us to a wonderful store in Stamford, Connecticut called Parrots and Company to get some supplies for our canaries.  We love visiting this shop because there are so many beautiful birds to look at.  On this particular visit, we struck up a conversation with a Congo African Grey parrot, who told …

Stopping for Pizza

Stopping for Pizza

One day, while we were out with Uncle Carlos and Laura Acuna, Carlos decided that he was in the mood for pizza.  After driving for a bit, he settled on Bambino’s Pizza.  Who doesn’t love the aroma of pizza in the oven?

Bartok has a Checkup

Posted by F&S

Bartok, one of our feline housemates, is named after the famous 20th century Hungarian composer and pianist, Béla Bartok.  It’s no secret that we’re all getting older, and Bartok is an impressive 15-years-old!  Recently, he spent some time at the veterinarian’s having a bunch of tests, just to be sure that he’s in tip-top condition.

A Visit to the Beach in East Hampton

Posted by F&S

This past weekend, Martha took us to our home in East Hampton, where there is always so much to see and do.  One of our favorite pastimes is to take long walks on the beach, except that this year, there is a real problem with the beaches.  We hope they can figure out how to …

While we were in Maine, we took a little drive to Bar Harbor, that quaint and famous summer community on Mount Desert Island.  There are so many fun stores to window shop and plenty of good aromas coming from all of the restaurants.  And because it is a harbor, there is much to see on …

Moving Plants to Skylands

This week was the big move of Martha’s tropical plants to Skylands so that the urns on the big terrace could all be planted.  We Frenchies usually make this road trip with Uncle Carlos, but this time, it was G.K. who got to travel with him, while we flew the next day with Martha.  We …

Off to the Races?

Off to the Races?

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I went to visit our friends, the donks, and we found them running around in their paddock.  We got to wondering who ran faster, donkeys or Frenchies?  What we didn’t expect was that Billie, the spotted one, was so full of facts.

An Eye-Opening Experience for Francesca!

Posted by Francesca

Well, it’s been quite a long ordeal, but I finally had that blasted button removed and my eye is now wide open and all healed.  I was taken to the veterinarian last Friday, but a small and unexpected problem was encountered.  I just hope I never get another corneal ulcer!

G.K. Talks to Rinze

G.K. Talks to Rinze

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

On Wednesday’s Daily Wag, the Frenchies explained about some of the ways that we dogs manage to stay cool during hot weather.  I, G.K., decided to leave the coolness of the kitchen’s marble floor and venture outdoors to see what I could see.

Good Food for the Chickens

Good Food for the Chickens

Posted by Sharkey

When I was outside the other morning, I came upon a large bag of greens just sitting on a wall.  I thought that maybe Chef Pierre had forgotten about the food he picked in the vegetable garden for Martha’a dinner party when I realized that the bag contained scraps for the chickens.  Francesca, G.K., and …
