What's Lurking in That Tree?

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

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?

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?

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.

Most people and animals who know me, don’t realize that I, G.K., am a highly introspective Chow Chow.  While I enjoy all the buzz and chatter around the farm, sometimes it’s nice for me to just escape and get away from it all.

We Frenchies were doing some exploring around the farm the other day, when we stumbled upon an odd looking object.  At first we were puzzled as to what it was, but our sharp wit soon figured it out.

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

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

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.
