Uncle Carlos came by the other day the other day because he had some errands to run for Martha.  Of course, we Frenchies, went with him.  One of our stops was the veterinarian, where Francesca had an appointment scheduled and prescriptions to pick up.

Thank you everyone for your concern about Francesca and Sharkey.  It’s been rough around here lately.  Even I, Ghenghis Khan, was caught limping around and when my blood was tested at the vet, it was discovered that I, too, have Lyme disease!  Bloody ticks!  So now we’re all taking medicine for one thing or another.

You may know that sitting on the stone wall overlooking the farm is one of our favorite vantage points.  The view is great and it’s fun watching the world go by.  We, Frenchies, were out there basking the other day when we discovered that our stone wall was getting a beautification treatment.

On yesterday’s blog, Francesca revealed that she is having an eye problem.  After a few different visits to the vet, we think we are on the right track for healing, what appears to be, a rather serious corneal ulcer.  We are all watching this thing like a hawk to make sure it’s not a progressive …

I must have done something to irritate my eye because it’s all sore and runny.  The doctor gave me some eye drops, but they don’t seem to be helping the situation.  I think I need a different medication.

After an exciting time of touring around Newport, Rhode Island, we dogs finally made it to the place where Martha was visiting.  It’s where our friend, Lilly, lives – a lovely and grand house with a sprawling green lawn overlooking the beautiful ocean.
