Hey, Wake Up!!!

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

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.

A Little Game of Hide-n-Seek

It’s been so cold and icy outside, making it very dangerous to play.  We dogs were going kind of stir-crazy being inside so much that we decided to play a good old-fashioned game of hid-n-seek.  Since G.K. is still the new kid on the block, we told him that he had to …

Well, we finally got around to extracting the honey from the beehives.  Carlos seemed to bee a bit frazzled, so I offered to be of assistance.  The whole process is rather time consuming.  The honey tastes really, really good – very herbal and light.  Thank you honeybees for providing again.

Too Much Snow For Sharkey!

As Martha wrote about on her blog today, we were hit hard with another snowstorm.  We Frenchies wanted to go outside and explore, so we donned our beautiful new white snow parkas.  Of course, we had no idea how deep the snow was and things got a little dicey.
