A Delivery for Maine

Posted by Sharkey

Martha asked Carlos to take a load of stuff up to Skylands, our home in Maine.  Being excellent travelling companions, he, of course, took us along for the ride.  G.K., our wonder dog, actually thought that he was going to do the driving!  Silly, G.K.

Are There Vegetables Growing in the Garden?

The March issue of Martha’s magazine, Living, arrived and I was struck by the beauty of the cover.  If you haven’t seen it, it’s a bountiful harvest of freshly picked vegetables.  I really love the garden and seeing that photo got me really thinking about our amazing vegetable garden here at the farm.

We’ve finally had a bit of a winter thaw and playing outside has become pleasant again.  We dogs headed out the door for a little fun and adventure.  One thing’s for sure – you never know what you’ll find around the next corner or what you’ll see flying overhead!

Fancesca and I decided to venture into the other parts of the house to see what the cats have been up to.  Guess what?  Not much!  We found them doing what they always seem to do – lounging and acting very arrogant and unappreciative of our Frenchie personalities.  Honestly!  All I can say is I’m …

We dogs have a case of the winter doldrums and the Frenchies have been spending a lot of time napping.  I’m a young puppy and I want to play!  I came up with a plan and tried really hard to wake up and shake up Sharkey using a Clocky.
