Sharkey is a Basket Case!

Sharkey is a Basket Case!

Sharkey and I were enjoying the great outdoors when I decided to give squirrel chasing a rest and explore a little nearby building.  The contents were quite amazing and it got my wheels turning.  Of course, getting Sharkey to cooperate is another story.

The other day Franny and I noticed that there were many bins of dry food sitting outside the flower room.  Then we noticed that the pantry in there was empty.  It became obvious that the pantry was being relocated, but we don’t know why.  Something big must be happening and when it does, we’ll be …

What's Down the Squirrel Hole Anyway?

Sharkey and I were outside yesterday when quite suddenly, a very strange sensation came over us.  It was almost savage and we wanted squirrel.  Hunting is fun but it is also difficult.  Good thing we are fed on a regular basis.

G.K. Stops to Smell the Peonies

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

As you know, Martha likes to grow all kinds of flowers and she is especially fond of her peony bed.  In fact, I am told that she hosts a peony party every spring just to show them off.  I’ve been trying to learn about everything growing on the farm so I went to study the …

Where Have all the Donkeys Gone?

The other day, I went to find my friends, the donkeys.  I like playing ball with Clive, Rufus, and Billy but they were not outside in their paddock.  After searching for a bit, I did locate them in the stable.  Who knew you had to make an appointment to play?

On Wednesday, I told you all about the big production that Sharkey, G.K., and I were asked to be part of in New York City.  We pooches will be the stars of our very own webisodes, which you must be certain not to miss, but you’ll be hearing more about that sometime soon.  Anyway, here …

Sharkey, G.K., and I were cast to star in our very own webisodes.  We can’t tell you too much about them, but we were chauffeured into New York City to the Starrett Lehigh building, where this all happened.  I have to say that being a celebrity has its perks, but, like Martha says, it is …

What's Going on in the Tomato Patch?

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I trotted down to the vegetable garden the other day to see how things were growing. The weather has been getting milder and I suppose the danger of frost has passed. We found Shaun and Wilmer out there planting all the tomatoes they grew from seed and of course, Franny and …

Sharkey Explores at Dusk

On a recent afternoon, I found myself alone since Francesca and G.K. were busy having a nap.  I just didn’t feel like joining them, so I went outside and hopped on a Kawasaki for a little spin around the farm.  There are always new and wonderful things to see.

Tree Peonies Galore But Not a Single One to Pick!

Tree Peonies Galore But Not a Single One to Pick!

Posted by Sharkey

Martha grows many, many peonies at the farm.  There is an enormous garden of herbaceous peonies and a long bed of exotic tree peonies.  The fragrance of these flowers is intoxicating and I wanted to pick a lovely bouquet to enjoy in the house.  Franny became very bossy when I suggested this and we had …
