A Revelation at the Chicken Coops

A Revelation at the Chicken Coops

Posted by Sharkey

Driving around in the Kawaski the other day, Franny and I stopped by the chicken coops and sadly reminisced about our poor friends, the turkeys.  Franny nearly lost it when she heard a gobble-gobble, but I kept my head and made a rather pleasant discovery.

Foraging for the Chickens

Foraging for the Chickens

Posted by F&S

We don’t know what you do with your pumpkins and gourds once Halloween and Thanksgiving are past.  At the farm, when they’re no longer needed for decoration, we put them to really good use.  Martha’s chickens love eating them.  Can you believe that one of the local restaurants, was going to throw away their giant …

The Crows at the Farm

The Crows at the Farm

Posted by F&S

Being the observant Frenchies that we are, we’re always keeping a close eye on the other animals at the farm.  Of course, there are the domesticated ones, who, like us, call this place their home.  But, in addition, there are the wild ones, who also seem to call this turf their home.  We are particularly …

G.K. Plays Rough

G.K. Plays Rough

Posted by F&S

The last time we went to Martha’s house in East Hampton, we had the pleasure of seeing Dodi.  Dodi is a golden retriever who belongs to Alex, the gardener, and he’s a really fun and nice dog to play with.  G.K. wanted to assert his dominance and got a little rough.  He’s still young and …

Never Visit a Turkey Right Before Thanksgiving!

Never Visit a Turkey Right Before Thanksgiving!

Posted by F&S

You probably know by now that Martha raises a lot of chickens so that she can enjoy and share all of their delicious eggs.  She also has some Pomeranian geese and they make so much darn noise that we, Frenchies, just can’t figure out what the attraction is there.  Then there are the six heritage …

How we Helped the Canaries

How we Helped the Canaries

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I hadn’t been to see the canaries for a couple of days so we went to pay a visit to those mellifluous little creatures.  When we got to their rather palatial cage, we were puzzled as to why they were all huddled at the top.  On further inspection, we discovered exactly what was …

G.K. Steals the Show, Again!

G.K. Steals the Show, Again!

Posted by Sharkey

Perhaps you all watched Martha’s show when a bunch of us dogs got to wear Halloween costumes?  Well, I was expecting to be the star that day and I was very disappointed when G.K. stole the show.  All Martha wanted to do was focus on sewing his costume and I was just sitting there looking …

A New Doo For Meindert

A New Doo For Meindert

Posted by Sharkey

I really like to visit my pal, Meindert, one of Martha’s majestic Friesian horses.  When I was out helping blow leaves the other day, I got an idea that I really wanted to try out.  The Kawasaki was available so I got behind the wheel and drove down to the stable to pay Meindert a …

G.K.'s First Halloween!

G.K.'s First Halloween!

Posted by F&S

Once again, Halloween has come and gone, but this was the first time that G.K. got to experience the holiday!  We Frenchies, being older and wiser, had to explain things to him and he caught on fast enough.

Autumn in Acadia National Park

Autumn in Acadia National Park

Posted by Francesca

When we were in Maine last week, it was the peak of the leaf season. The view from the terrace of Skylands was so amazing, but I really wanted to go for a drive in Acadia National Park to see more splendors. Here’s what we encountered.
