Antsy For Spring!

Posted by F&S

Who’s getting tired of winter?  We Frenchies say, “Enough is enough!”  One good thing we’ve noticed is that the days are getting longer, which sometimes casts a spring-like glow.  We know it’s just a matter of time, but we’re getting antsy for spring!

During the winter, it’s so nice to be able to spend time in the warm and toasty greenhouse and enjoy all of the splendors growing there.  The other day, we Frenchies, spent some time communing with Martha’s beautiful begonia collection.

We Frenchies were playing outside the other day and we got kind of cold so we decided to visit Ryan and Wilmer in the greenhouse.  As usual those guys were very busy working magic with plants.  We always learn so much from them.

Francesca and Sharkey Tour The Farm

As you know, Francesca has been confined to the house and to a crate.  Recently, we got the go-ahead for her to resume her normal activities, erring on the side of caution.  I thought that a farm tour would be a good idea, so I fired up the Kawasaki and took Franny for a ride!

As you know, I’ve been confined to the house with my neck issues and I haven’t been able to do most of the things that I so love doing.  Sharkey has been doing a great job holding the fort down and reporting on the Daily Wag.  I suppose with all the added responsibility, she might …

After G.K. and I watched the farm crew clearing and chipping wood, we took a little drive further into the woods to see if there was anything else to observe.  I know it’s been super cold outside, but I had no idea just how cold until we came upon the following.

It dawned on me the other day that I haven’t seen much of the farm crew.  I know they’ve been busy because I hear all sorts of power equipment, but I just didn’t know what they’ve been busy doing.  G.K. and I went out to investigate.

Francesca's Confinement

Francesca gave us all quite a scare when she started having seizures last week.  We all thought that there might be something seriously wrong with her brain or that she might have epilepsy.  However, we all were greatly relieved when an animal neurologist discovered that a bulging neck disc was causing all of Francesca’s problems.  …
