Clive, Rufus, and Billy as Seen on TV

We, Frenchies, wanted to catch Martha’s TV show the other day, so we turned it on in the kitchen.  Much to our amazement, we saw three reindeer enter the set, pulling a big gift sled!  But, upon further inspection, we realized they weren’t reindeer at all.

Helping With the Burlap Project

Posted by F&S

The crew at the farm has been working so hard lately cleaning up storm damage, planting new trees, and preparing for winter.  As you probably know, Martha likes to cover all the boxwood shrubs with burlap to protect them from the winter elements.  This is a huge job, as more and more boxwood keep getting …

Yesterday was not a nice day at the farm, as it was rainy and chilly.  We, Frenchies, needed to go outside and I had to find our warm rain jackets.  While we were outdoors, Sharkey and I became concerned about a grove of trees and made an inspection.

Franny and I were watching Martha’s show leading up to Thanksgiving and Martha shared some holiday cheer of photos that viewers sent in.  One was of a silly Frenchie who was pretending to be a Thanksgiving turkey all ready for carving.  Martha actually said she wanted me to do the same thing.  I don’t think …

It’s beginning to be clear that I, G.K., have the makings of a true champion.  I’m breaking into the dog show circuit and I’m winning!  I was watching Sharkey and Francesca the other day acting very strangely.  They seem to have a misconception about what really goes on at a dog show.  I think Karen …

The other day when Karen and Jan came to pick up G.K. and take him to the dog show, we had a surprise visitor!  I thought it was just Francesca at first, but on closer investigation, I thought differently.

Now that G.K. is a champion and brought home his first blue ribbons, he’s off to Syracuse, New York for another competition.  His breeder, Karen Tracy of Pazzazz Chows, and his handler, Jan Kolnik, came to the farm yesterday to chauffeur our Ghenghis Khan to hopefully, another win.  We’ll keep you posted!
