Willows and Signs of Spring

Posted by Sharkey

Even though it’s been a rather mild winter, Francesca and I are antsy for spring to arrive.  It’s still February, but if you look hard enough, there are signs of spring in many places around the farm.  The other day, I fired up the engine of the Kawasaki, I went and found Francesca paying a …

I must say that competing in The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show has been quite an honor and I am especially proud of my big win for Best of Breed.  After a really long day, I joined other Best of Breed winners to see which dog would win Best of Group.  I’ll tell you right …

Spring Chores During Winter - Go Figure!

Spring Chores During Winter - Go Figure!

We keep talking about what a mild winter it’s been.  Driving around the farm the other day, we observed a lot of action going on in the vegetable garden.  I guess if it’s going to be unseasonably warm, you might as well take advantage of the situation!

How many of you Daily Wag readers saw that very funny Sketchers commercial during the Super Bowl about Mr. Quiggly, the French bulldog?  Apparently, if a Frenchie wears a set of Skektchers running shoes, he or she can outrun a pack of greyhounds!  Too funny!
