Swinging is a Blast!

Posted by Sharkey

We were out and about with Uncle Carlos the other day when we came upon a playground, which had swings for kids.  Franny and I started wondering, why should kids have all the fun?  Why not dogs, too?  It turns out that swinging is a blast and Franny even started reciting poetry.  I think I’ll …

Sharkey and I were very surprised the other day when we found so much food in the kitchen.  There were bowls of this and trays of that and we could not imagine what it was all to be used for.  Much to our surprise, little G.K., who is not so little anymore, informed us that …

Laura Acuna was really busy the other day, polishing all of Martha’s silver, in preparation for a big dinner party.  Martha has been collecting silver for many years and much of it is quite old and beautiful.  We, Frenchies, thought it would be a good idea to help Laura out.  Of course, our minds started …

Hey Donkeys! It's Spring!

Spring is in the air and that makes me so happy.  I decided to trot around the farm and tell all of my friends the good news, thinking that everyone would be as enthusiastic as I am.  Little did I know that the donkeys have their own opinions about warm weather.

With the arrival of spring, there are so many chores to do around the farm.  You probably know by now that Martha likes to blanket the farm with burlap to protect things from the wind and cold.  Sharkey and I like to help out by removing the burlap from the boxwood hedges.  Come and see …

As you know, we Frenchies, really love our couture. However, nothing beats going outdoors with just our birthday suits and feeling that warm sun on our furry backs. Quite suddenly, the cold temperatures disappeared and we were blessed with a stretch of really pleasantly warm and sunny days. And also quite suddenly, …

When you live on a farm, there are many chores to do.  Shaun, the gardener, has been really busy with his crew, getting the grounds all spruced up for spring.  Franny and I decided to explore the berry patch the other day and saw that it was really overgrown.  Berries need a good pruning every …

Dreaming of springtime

I was outdoors last week, dreaming of springtime, when I happened to see Fernando busy at work.  He was getting the pergola ready for some touch ups, before all the plants begin to grow and climb.  You may recall that I really love this pergola and all of the blooms that it supports.  Therefore, I …

What Happened to Susie?

Susie, Martha’s executive administrator in Bedford, spends a great deal of time with us, Frenchies.  One day, Susie didn’t come to work.  Then, another day passed and then, another, and we started to worry.  We couldn’t imagine what happened to Susie.  Then, one day, she finally came back to work and we were so happy …

I was sitting looking out over the farm the other day when I noticed a rather large bird circling overhead.  My initial response to this was – HAWK!!!  ALL SMALL ANIMALS TAKE COVER!!!  Then I realized that it was a turkey vulture and even though it has a tremendous wingspan up to 72 inches, there …
