Showing Jessica the Bedford area - part one

Posted by Francesca

We recently met Jessica, Martha’s new executive assistant.  Jessica will be spending most of the time at the office in New York City, but we felt it was important to introduce her to the Bedford area.  Uncle Carlos drove us into Katonah so that Jessica could learn all about where Martha shops and here’s one …

Francesca and I live in a house that now has five cats.  I know – we haven’t shown you any pictures of the new calico Persian kittens yet.  Truth be told, we haven’t seen much of them ourselves.  In fact, we find that cats are just so darn aloof.  Why don’t they ever want to …

A store for just us dogs!

A store for just us dogs!

Posted by Francesca

Uncle Carlos was driving through Mt. Kisco, New York recently, when he noticed a store called Just Dogs Gourmet. A sign in the window said that dogs are welcome so, the other day, we went on a little field trip. The store is bright and cheerful and is filled with really great things …

A trip to the Grand Prix!

You know how much we Frenchies love to drive and Uncle Carlos took us to a really fun place the other day.  It’s called Grand Prix New York, located in nearby Mount Kisco.  This is an amazing place where you can go and drive little racecars around two beautiful indoor tracks.  They told us that …

This past weekend, Martha took us back to Skylands, in Maine.  Because of the approaching Hurricane Bill, the weather was a bit rough for a couple of days.  However, that never stops us from going out and exploring nature and we had a great time at the Seal Harbor beach.

Pondering the beauty of Skylands

Sharkey and I really love to visit Skylands in Maine. Last weekend, we went there with Martha and we did so much walking. Fortunately, there are many comfortable places to sit and rest and we did plenty of that, too.

We found the garlic and onions!

Posted by Francesca

The other day, Martha and Shaun, the gardener, were discussing the fact that the onions and garlic needed to be harvested. Shaun had planted many, many varieties of onions last spring and there was plenty of garlic planted last autumn. Sharkey and I heard them talking about how you must cure the crop …

Hydrangea Blooms

Posted by Francesca

Did you know that you can change the color of hydrangea blooms? Martha tells us that it has to do with soil pH, or how acidic or alkaline the soil is. If the soil is acidic, the blossoms will be blue. In alkaline soil, the flowers will be pink. Walking through …

Feeding our friends, the donkeys

Posted by Francesca

Martha asked us to do a chore at the farm the other day. She told us to feed Clive, Rufus, and Billie some nice apples and carrots.
I don’t mind doing chores, but it would be nice if Sharkey did some of the work, as well. It seems that she always manages to shirk responsibility.

Francesca behind the wheel

Guess what Francesca and I did yesterday? We went to the local supermarket and found out that they made a special grocery cart just for us. Come and take a look.
