The Frenchies Want to be Show Dogs

The Frenchies Want to be Show Dogs

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

It’s beginning to be clear that I, G.K., have the makings of a true champion.  I’m breaking into the dog show circuit and I’m winning!  I was watching Sharkey and Francesca the other day acting very strangely.  They seem to have a misconception about what really goes on at a dog show.  I think Karen …

The other day when Karen and Jan came to pick up G.K. and take him to the dog show, we had a surprise visitor!  I thought it was just Francesca at first, but on closer investigation, I thought differently.

Now that G.K. is a champion and brought home his first blue ribbons, he’s off to Syracuse, New York for another competition.  His breeder, Karen Tracy of Pazzazz Chows, and his handler, Jan Kolnik, came to the farm yesterday to chauffeur our Ghenghis Khan to hopefully, another win.  We’ll keep you posted!

Have you ever had the olfactory experience of smelling the fruit of the ginkgo biloba tree?  Let us tell you something – even for us, Frenchies, who like funky aromas, from time to time, that fruit is pretty rancid!  We’d love to know what you think about it.

With winter approaching, Martha and Carlos decided that the bee hives should be moved to a different location, where they would be protected from the harsh winter winds and where they would receive sunlight throughout most of the day.  After driving around, they decided that the stable parking lot was just the right place.

On Martha’s blog today, she has many photos of the process of building a new greenhouse at the farm.  You know that Martha has been working very hard and also traveling quite a bit and what she may not know is that we, Frenchies, were very helpful with the construction.  Good thing we have these …

We, Frenchies, were down by the greenhouse, watching the guys move all the tropical plants into the new heated hoop house for winter storage.  Most of the plants survived our freak snowstorm a couple of weeks ago, except for a few that will need some TLC.  One, of those, in particular, caught our attention.

As you know, we always like to visit our friends on the farm and we happened to see Sasa right after he and Betsy came back from one of their rides along the Bedford Riding Lanes.  We found out that Sasa experienced a little problem along the way.

You’re probably all wondering about the results of my debut in the world of show dogs.  I must tell you that being in a show is a very exciting thing.  It was great to be with Karen and Jan and I think I’m really hooked on show business!

The weather has been so crazy lately and it seems like you just don’t know what will happen from one day to the next.    First we had a freak snowstorm that ruined so many trees.  Then it got really warm and melted all the snow.  Today, the temperatures were frigid again and the wind was …
