How Does One Get to Westminster? It Helps to be on Time!

Well, today is the big day that we’ve all been waiting for!  Our brother, G.K., is making his first appearance at The 136th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show  and we, Frenchies, had really big dreams of being there ourselves!

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!

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!

There are less than two weeks until G.K. makes his big debut at The Westminster Kennel Club dog show.  We, Frenchies, are hoping for the best, of course, and in the meantime, we are seeing to some of G.K.’s basic grooming needs.  A dog must look his or her best at Westminster!

Now that it’s winter, food is becoming scarce for many animals in the wild.  In fact, it has been brought to our attention that a couple of hungry red foxes have been spotted very near to our house.  While we, Frenchies, are being very cautious outdoors, we did come across something very interesting the other …

A Lesson in Cat Grooming

I was wandering around the house the other day when I realized that the fur balls were nowhere to be found.  They usually drape themselves all over the furniture, but I couldn’t find a single cat anywhere.  That’s when I thought I’d go to the basement laundry room and have a look down there.

What We Didn't Know About Donkey Hooves

As you may know by now, I love playing with our miniature donkeys, Clive, Rufus, and Billie.  The other day, I was running in their paddock trying to get them to play with me, but they said that they had something important to do in the stable.  At first I thought they were just brushing …
