Going to Martha's Show

We dogs were so excited the other day because we were needed on the set of Martha’s television show.  Uncle Carlos came to drive us in.  We just love going to the TV studio.  We have so many friends there and the ride is always fun.

I had nothing to read the other day, so I picked up the March issue of the Maine Antique Digest, one of Martha’s favorite antiques publications.  It’s filled with all sorts of ads for antique shows around the country and also some very interesting articles about antiquities.  One article, in particular, caught my attention about …

Willows and Signs of Spring

Posted by Sharkey

Even though it’s been a rather mild winter, Francesca and I are antsy for spring to arrive.  It’s still February, but if you look hard enough, there are signs of spring in many places around the farm.  The other day, I fired up the engine of the Kawasaki, I went and found Francesca paying a …

It’s a good thing I looked on Martha’s calendar because I suddenly realized that Sharkey’s seventh birthday is this Saturday!  You may recall my birthday last December, when Sharkey got creative in the kitchen and whipped me up a special treat.  Well, I wanted to reciprocate.  Please have a look.

Spring Chores During Winter - Go Figure!

We keep talking about what a mild winter it’s been.  Driving around the farm the other day, we observed a lot of action going on in the vegetable garden.  I guess if it’s going to be unseasonably warm, you might as well take advantage of the situation!

How many of you Daily Wag readers saw that very funny Sketchers commercial during the Super Bowl about Mr. Quiggly, the French bulldog?  Apparently, if a Frenchie wears a set of Skektchers running shoes, he or she can outrun a pack of greyhounds!  Too funny!

Finding Safety in an Apple Tree

Posted by F&S

In our never-ending quest to be crackerjack squirrel chasers, we tore across the farm after one the other day.  We were just inches away from its tail, when the darn thing darted and made a beeline for the hollow of an old apple tree.  You’ll get yours yet, squirrel!

Why do we Have a Topiary Donkey?

We dogs were sitting at the kitchen door the other day watching the world go by, when I spotted a very strange thing out in the courtyard.  After investigating, I found out that this object was sent from a place in Brooklyn, NY called Dig Gardens.   Now we just have to figure out why?

We Frenchies, were tucked away in our beds in the kitchen, when we overheard the cats in the other room having quite a conversation.  Bartok was rattling off all sorts of facts about the birds and it actually seemed like he knew what he was talking about!
