Being Martha’s pets, Francesca and I not only strive to be educators, but also innovators!  Today, I decided to invent an itch innovation!

What's in the Corn Crib?

What's in the Corn Crib?

Posted by Sharkey

When Martha bought the farm, it came with a charming little building called a corn crib.  The corn crib really isn’t used for much, but we all love how it looks in the landscape.  I should say that it really isn’t used for much, until now.

We Frenchies were doing some exploring around the farm the other day, when we stumbled upon an odd looking object.  At first we were puzzled as to what it was, but our sharp wit soon figured it out.

Sharkey and I went to visit our friends, the donks, and we found them running around in their paddock.  We got to wondering who ran faster, donkeys or Frenchies?  What we didn’t expect was that Billie, the spotted one, was so full of facts.

As you know, we Frenchies are going through a rough patch.  Francesca will have her lid sewn shut for another couple of weeks, which means that she’ll also have her eye button and cone collar.  My dewclaw issue is healing well but I still need to have my paw bandaged, which is an issue if …
