Real Champions Like to be Groomed

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

I, G.K., was told that I had to go and visit a dog groomer because I was to make my acting debut in a PetSmart commercial.  I have been given baths and brush outs at home, but I had never been to a groomer before.  You might expect a little pup like me to be …

Martha has a very interesting collection of antique glass jars up high on a shelf in the kitchen.  They are filled with all sorts of things that are interesting to look at, to cook with, and to smell.  The other day, Laura and Sanu, the housekeepers, were dusting those jars and the shelf.  Of course, …

Check Out What's Growing in the Cold House

Posted by Sharkey

In our ever-present quest for adventure, Franny and I wandered over to the cold house, where vegetables are planted right in the very fertile ground.  It’s always interesting to see what is growing there and sometimes I wish that I could actually eat the stuff.  However, I am told that people are people and dogs …

Exploring the Hoop House

We, Frenchies, noticed that the hoop house’s door was open the other day, so we decided to go in and have a look.  Voila!  That’s where all the beautiful tropical plants that grace the sunken garden have been stored for the cold months of winter.  We love those tropical specimens and we can’t wait for …

Maintaining a Stone Wall

Posted by Sharkey

The weather was so beautiful yesterday and a lot of our household clan wandered outdoors to enjoy the sunshine.  It seems that the wall around Martha’s patio is a favorite spot to congregate and like Martha, I want to be sure that the wall will be around for many, many years.

Now that spring has arrived, the grounds crew has been very busy with all of the spring chores.  One major job is taking down the storm windows and replacing them with the screens.  Because Franny and I are never concerned about getting our paws dirty, we are always ready to chip in and help.  No …

After days of rain, it finally feels like spring has arrived.  At least, that’s what everyone tells me.  You see, this is my very first spring and I’ve got to say that so far, I love it!  I came to live at the farm during winter, when things looked very different.  I really enjoy being …
