Sharkey is a Basket Case!

Sharkey is a Basket Case!

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I were enjoying the great outdoors when I decided to give squirrel chasing a rest and explore a little nearby building.  The contents were quite amazing and it got my wheels turning.  Of course, getting Sharkey to cooperate is another story.

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.

Where Have all the Donkeys Gone?

Where Have all the Donkeys Gone?

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

The other day, I went to find my friends, the donkeys.  I like playing ball with Clive, Rufus, and Billy but they were not outside in their paddock.  After searching for a bit, I did locate them in the stable.  Who knew you had to make an appointment to play?

On Wednesday, I told you all about the big production that Sharkey, G.K., and I were asked to be part of in New York City.  We pooches will be the stars of our very own webisodes, which you must be certain not to miss, but you’ll be hearing more about that sometime soon.  Anyway, here …

Sharkey, G.K., and I were cast to star in our very own webisodes.  We can’t tell you too much about them, but we were chauffeured into New York City to the Starrett Lehigh building, where this all happened.  I have to say that being a celebrity has its perks, but, like Martha says, it is …

Verdi Gets a Beauty Treatment

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I saw Sanu, one of the housekeepers, grabbing Verdi, the cat, and taking him down into the laundry room.  We decided to follow and see what was going on.  We wondered if it was the dreaded bath time.  We almost felt sorry for the fluffy feline.  However, he was only down there for …

What's Going on in the Tomato Patch?

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I trotted down to the vegetable garden the other day to see how things were growing. The weather has been getting milder and I suppose the danger of frost has passed. We found Shaun and Wilmer out there planting all the tomatoes they grew from seed and of course, Franny and …

Pulling Weeds with the Crew

Pulling Weeds with the Crew

Posted by Francesca

The other morning when we woke up, a gentle rain was falling.  I was getting a little stir crazy and told Sharkey to find our rain slickers so that we could go outdoors.  We trotted down to where the lilies grow and we found the crew wearing rain slickers, too.  They were busy weeding and …

G.K. Learns About Barn Swallows

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

As the new puppy on the farm, there is really a lot for me to learn about.  Just the other day, I was walking past the carport when this bird came swooping down at me.  I wanted to know what kind of bird it was, so I went to find my sisters, Franny and Sharkey.  …

New Succulents at the Farm!

New Succulents at the Farm!

Posted by Sharkey

Francesca is healing a little problem with her eye and she needs to rest indoors.  Yesterday, I ventured outside and noticed that Shaun was digging along the stone pathway.  I saw that he was planting new succulents and I jumped in to help with the chore.  It’s very gratifying to help around the farm.
