Dog sitting for G.K.

Dog sitting for G.K.

Posted by Sharkey

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

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 …

A visit to The Toy Chest

Posted by Francesca

Last week, Uncle Carlos took us to visit his friend, Ann, who owns The Toy Chest in Ridgefield, Connecticut. We love toys and were very excited to go there. What Carlos failed to tell us was that The Toy Chest is full of human toys and not a store for dogs, yet we …

Fishing at the reservoir

Fishing at the reservoir

Sharkey and I were exploring the other day when we came upon the nearby Cross River Reservoir.  It was amazing how many rowboats there were upon the shore.  Sharkey told me that she has seen people fishing from these boats and that got us dreaming about a fresh caught fish for dinner.  However, we Frenchies …

Stonehenge in Connecticut?

The other day, we took a drive to Connecticut with Martha and Uncle Carlos.  It was a very lovely day and the winter landscape looked beautiful.  Suddenly, something caught my attention and I told Carlos to stop the car.  Sharkey and I are always so curious to investigate new things and the display we found …

A Trip With Martha To The Home Depot

Posted by Sharkey

This past weekend, Martha dressed us in our Lion Brand Yarn www.lionbrand.com sweaters and told Carlos to get the car ready for a road trip.  She wanted to drive to East Hampton to check on the house.  Of course, there were stops to make along the way, including one to The Home Depot.  We, Frenchies, …

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I are always looking for fun and new things to do.  When we were visiting Mike in his office at the stable, we noticed that he had quite a fancy copier machine.  As usual, our creative minds went to work.  Come and check it out.
