More Dog Adventures in Maine

Posted by Sharkey

While we were at Skylands, our home in Maine, Martha did a lot of Entertaining.  I like to sit below her while she is eating, in hopes that she might share with me.  Oh well, I guess it is a little obnoxious, but isn’t that what dogs are supposed to do?  When it became apparent …

Frenchies on the High Seas

Frenchies on the High Seas

Posted by F&S

While we were in Maine, Martha took us all out in her Hinckley Picnic Boat for the first ride of the summer season.  It was a glorious day and there were many sailboats out on the bay racing or just tootling about.  We Frenchies got to talking about sailing and perhaps setting off on a …

While the Dogs are Away....

Posted by F&S

While we dogs were busy having fun at Skylands, our home in Maine, the cats had free reign of the house and you never know what goes on when we’re gone.  We decided to set up a motion cam in the kitchen to see what they dare to do in our space.  We must admit, …

Edible Flowers at the Farm

Edible Flowers at the Farm

Posted by F&S

As you know, we Frenchies are curious about so many things and just the other day, we started a discussion about edible flowers.  Not all flowers are edible, so it’s important to be certain which ones are, as some flowers can be toxic.  However, at the farm, there are many edible flowers growing in the …

What we Stumbled Upon in East Hampton

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

On a recent trip to our home in East Hampton, at the far end of Long Island, New York, we were driving around with Uncle Carlos when he spotted a large gathering in a field.  He stopped the car so that we could see what all the fun was about.

What Was Francesca Hunting For?

What Was Francesca Hunting For?

Posted by Sharkey

While we were outside yesterday, I noticed that Francesca was staring intently off in the distance.  I just assumed she was squirrel hunting.  As it turned out, she wasn’t hunting that little beast, but something entirely different.

What's Lurking in That Tree?

What's Lurking in That Tree?

Posted by Francesca

On Friday, I blogged about how I drove the Kawasaki around the farm checking on all of the sprinklers watering the gardens.  After my inspection, I continued my drive when I spotted something quite large lurking in a tree.  I was rather surprised by what I found.

The Importance of Water

The Importance of Water

Posted by Francesca

Despite the hot weather, I’ve been feeling quite energetic these days.  Of course, I’ve been drinking a lot of water to keep myself hydrated, which got me thinking about all of the plants out in the gardens and wondered if they were getting enough water?

Our New Kittens!

Our New Kittens!

Posted by F&S

Yesterday, Martha dashed out to the Hamptons with Uncle Carlos and, of course, took G.K. and us with her.  There was very little time to post a new Daily Wag, so we are allowing the new kittens (yes – there are new kittens!) to blog for us today.  We’re happy to introduce you to Kublai …

What's in the Corn Crib?

What's in the Corn Crib?

Posted by Sharkey

When Martha bought the farm, it came with a charming little building called a corn crib.  The corn crib really isn’t used for much, but we all love how it looks in the landscape.  I should say that it really isn’t used for much, until now.
