That Crazy Vivaldi!!

That Crazy Vivaldi!!

Posted by Sharkey

I was out in the garden yesterday when I came across Vivaldi the cat.  He was acting so weird rolling around on an herb called Nepeta, also known as catnip.  He was actually making a big fool of himself. You may recall reading a blog about this same thing last year.   Take a …

The Frenchie Chef

Yesterday, Franny and I blogged about how hot it’s been outside at the farm.  Because of the intense heat, Martha wants us to spend most of the day inside so that we don’t get over heated.  To entertain ourselves during this confinement, we decided to shoot our own baking show.  We set up the necessary …

Fly Predators to the Rescue!

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I were wondering why the horses and the donkeys were wearing masks when they were outdoors.  We went to ask Betsy and she gave us a lesson in Fly Predators.  It turns out that Fly Predators are the good guys who work to get rid of the bad pest flies.  It’s really an …

You know how we, Frenchies, are always looking for things to do around the farm.  The day we visited Maureen, the business manager, at the stable office, we also looked into the room where Martha keeps her enormous collection of photographs.  They are very neatly organized, but Sharkey and I wanted to help her out …

Negotiating a Bonus

As you know, we Frenchies have been working overtime. Not that that’s a bad thing because we rather enjoy all the attention. However, Martha always says that hard work should not go unrewarded, so we decided to pay Maureen, the business manager in Bedford, a little visit.

Welcome to the Tropics!

Welcome to the Tropics!

Last week was so hot and humid.  The air was very thick and we Frenchies felt so sluggish.  One afternoon, it started to rain and we thought things would cool down.  However, it seemed to only make it feel more tropical.

I’m so happy that Martha loves her dogs, but she also loves her cats. That wouldn’t be such a bad thing if they just minded their own business. Take Vivaldi, for example. He’s very cunning and I forget about that fact. Look what he did to me recently!

Why are They Called Barn Swallows, Anyway?

We, Frenchies, were outside the other day just basking in the sun, when along came Vivaldi, the cat.  We have seen the cats do some pretty foolish things, but this maneuver just might take the cake.

What's Bright Red and Fuzzy all Over?

What's Bright Red and Fuzzy all Over?

Posted by Sharkey

The other day when Franny and I were outside, I spied something bright red sitting out in one of the fields.  Of course, being a most curious Frenchie, I trotted out to see what it was.  I was very surprised to find one of the new items from Martha’s PetSmart line.  Please be patient, dear …

Frenchie Bocce Anyone?

Frenchie Bocce Anyone?

Posted by Francesca

Bocce, in one form or another, is one of the world’s most popular ball games.  Its popularity is nothing new:  Roman soldiers played it, probably with round stones, while they waited to fight the Punic Wars.  In 1388, England’s Richard II actually outlawed bocce because he worried that his subjects were spending too little time …
