I’m always looking for new things to read and I was so happy the other day to find the latest issue of Martha Stewart Living – April 2010.  It’s filled with great Easter ideas and lots of other ‘Good Things.’  Going through the pages, I also came upon a new column called ‘Your Pets.’  I …

G.K. Encounters Rinze

G.K. Encounters Rinze

Posted by Sharkey

We Frenchies decided to take the Kawasaki out for a spin the other day and Martha asked us to take G.K. along for the ride.  We don’t mind as long as he knows he belongs in the back seat.  As we were passing by the stable, Betsy was coming back from a ride with Rinze …

Some Signs of Spring

Some Signs of Spring

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I put our yellow coats on the other day and went outside to explore.  We’ve been noticing how the days seem to be getting longer and that can only mean that spring is on its way.  We trotted around the farm to see if we could find evidence of this and we weren’t …

Sharkey Goes to the Vet

Sharkey Goes to the Vet

Posted by Sharkey

I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather, which probably is an exaggeration, since the weather around here has been horrid – cold, windy, and rainy, with a lot of snow on the way.  Anyway, I was coughing quite a bit and it was suggested that I might have swallowed something that got caught somewhere.  …

Recently, Carlos was asked to deliver some chairs from Bedford to Kevin’s office in New York City.  Kevin needed them for a photo shoot.  You know, moving furniture is challenging and very strenuous.  So, when Carlos asked for my help, I was happy to oblige.  Sharkey saw me struggling and when I asked for a …

G.K. Explores in the Snow

I suppose that when you are a puppy, there are many things to get excited about.  Sharkey and I keep forgetting that for G.K., the world is a totally new place and that things, like snow, are something of a phenomena.  It’s amusing to see his enthusiasm.  It’s kind of infectious, actually, and I have …

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 …

Sharkey and I have been writing this blog for 48 weeks and in all that time, I don’t think we mentioned that we are excellent pianists.  Did you even know that Martha has a piano?  We, of course, have a strong preference for French composers.  The other day, G.K. was entirely too rambunctious and I …

A good job for us

A good job for us

Posted by Sharkey

The other day, a very large crate was delivered to the farm.  Franny and I were looking for something to do when we spotted Gyurme outside.  We were so happy that he had a job for us and we especially loved that it required tools.  We, Frenchies, are very crafty, after all.

G.K says hello to the donkeys

G.K says hello to the donkeys

Posted by Francesca

Our new brother, Ghenghis Khan, (we call him G.K.) is a very curious and rather brave little tyke.  We’ve been working hard to teach him all about things on the farm.  We told him about the miniature donkeys and how much fun they are to chase.  Well, wouldn’t you know it!  G.K. trotted right out …
