A Dinner in Sharkey's Honor

Posted by Sharkey

If you read Martha’s blog, then you know how much she loves to entertain.  On a recent trip to Skylands, our home in Maine, I heard that there was a very special dinner planned in my honor.  Chef Pierre, even prepared French bully baisse, just for me.

Weeds, Weeds, and More Weeds

Posted by Sharkey

It’s been raining a good deal around the farm and you know that with rain, comes weeds.  The guys have been working really hard cleaning up after that crazy twister blew over so many trees.  When I saw them weeding around the house, I told Franny that we should really help them with their chores.  …

Hiking With Martha in Maine

Posted by F&S

Two days ago, we told you about the wonderful boat ride we had up in Maine.  We also went for a really beautiful hike along the water’s edge.  Martha is always so energetic and she really loves hiking.  However, it was kind of a challenge keeping the others up to pace.

If you’ve been following our blog, then you know that Sharkey, G.K., and I have been working hard on creating our very own webisodes.  Webisodes are little shorts that you watch on the Internet.  There is so much that goes into a production and many, many scenes needed to be shot.  Just the other day, …

That Crazy Vivaldi!!

I was out in the garden yesterday when I came across Vivaldi the cat.  He was acting so weird rolling around on an herb called Nepeta, also known as catnip.  He was actually making a big fool of himself. You may recall reading a blog about this same thing last year.   Take a …

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 …

Fly Predators to the Rescue!

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I were wondering why the horses and the donkeys were wearing masks when they were outdoors.  We went to ask Betsy and she gave us a lesson in Fly Predators.  It turns out that Fly Predators are the good guys who work to get rid of the bad pest flies.  It’s really an …

You know how we, Frenchies, are always looking for things to do around the farm.  The day we visited Maureen, the business manager, at the stable office, we also looked into the room where Martha keeps her enormous collection of photographs.  They are very neatly organized, but Sharkey and I wanted to help her out …

What's Bright Red and Fuzzy all Over?

Posted by Sharkey

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 …
