G.K. Takes a Look Around the Farm

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

After days of rain, it finally feels like spring has arrived.  At least, that’s what everyone tells me.  You see, this is my very first spring and I’ve got to say that so far, I love it!  I came to live at the farm during winter, when things looked very different.  I really enjoy being …

Swinging is a Blast!

Swinging is a Blast!

We were out and about with Uncle Carlos the other day when we came upon a playground, which had swings for kids.  Franny and I started wondering, why should kids have all the fun?  Why not dogs, too?  It turns out that swinging is a blast and Franny even started reciting poetry.  I think I’ll …

Sharkey and I were very surprised the other day when we found so much food in the kitchen.  There were bowls of this and trays of that and we could not imagine what it was all to be used for.  Much to our surprise, little G.K., who is not so little anymore, informed us that …

Martha’s housekeepers work hard to keep the house looking beautiful.  Let me tell you that with so many pets, their jobs can’t be easy.  Just the other day, I found Maria working on a section of the wood floor.  There were so many scratches and I just couldn’t understand what, or who, made them until …

What Hides Beneath all of G.K.'s Fur

Yesterday we, Frenchies, were sleeping peacefully, when we were awaked by the sound of running water.  We looked over to the sink only to see a strange and skinny little animal being bathed.  On closer inspection, we discovered that it was a dog, but we couldn’t imagine why another new dog would be in our …

Franny and I have been working hard making G.K. feel welcomed.  Well, maybe not so much Franny.  Getting used to a dog brother is a big adjustment and you know how territorial dogs can be.  Franny is very set in her ways and she’s had to learn to back off considerably.  Take a look at …

You may know that I had a bit of difficulty accepting our new brother, G.K., into our lives.  Things were great with us, Frenchies, being the keepers of our domain.  I know that Martha really misses Paw Paw and that she really wanted another Chow Chow.  However, the arrival of little Ghenghis Khan was over …

Now that G.K. has come to live with us, there is very little rest for the weary.  He is most rambunctious and he is certainly curious.  Franny and I know that Martha waited a very long time for this puppy, a grandson of Paw Paw’s, and we feel a huge responsibility to keep him safe …

Our brother, Ghenghis Khan, G.K. for short, comes from royal lineage.  His grandfather was the one and only Paw Paw and his father is the great Maddox, currently the number one Chow Chow in the United States.  Francesca and I have to admit that we are proud to share our home with a pooch of …

We, Frenchies, have always heard that having a new puppy is a lot of work, and we could not agree more!  There really is no rest for the weary.  When we’re with him at home, G.K. runs circles around us, wanting to play all the time.  And talk about popularity!  Everyone showers him with attention.  …
