We don’t know about the weather where you live, but it was more than 70º F yesterday!  We, Frenchies, have been giving you updates about what’s blooming at the farm this mild winter and here’s our latest report.

Playground Fun!

Playground Fun!

We were driving with Uncle Carlos the other day doing some errands and at one stop we had to stay in the car.  That is fine to do when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold.  However, on this particular day, there was just too much temptation outside for us to stay put.

Everyone is talking about what a mild winter it’s been and how there hasn’t been any snow except for that October snowstorm that caused so many problems.  Well, truth be told, I rather like the snow and I have the perfect coat for going out in it!

We dogs were so excited the other day because we were needed on the set of Martha’s television show.  Uncle Carlos came to drive us in.  We just love going to the TV studio.  We have so many friends there and the ride is always fun.

What I Made For Sharkey's Birthday

It’s a good thing I looked on Martha’s calendar because I suddenly realized that Sharkey’s seventh birthday is this Saturday!  You may recall my birthday last December, when Sharkey got creative in the kitchen and whipped me up a special treat.  Well, I wanted to reciprocate.  Please have a look.

How many of you Daily Wag readers saw that very funny Sketchers commercial during the Super Bowl about Mr. Quiggly, the French bulldog?  Apparently, if a Frenchie wears a set of Skektchers running shoes, he or she can outrun a pack of greyhounds!  Too funny!

Finding Safety in an Apple Tree

Posted by F&S

In our never-ending quest to be crackerjack squirrel chasers, we tore across the farm after one the other day.  We were just inches away from its tail, when the darn thing darted and made a beeline for the hollow of an old apple tree.  You’ll get yours yet, squirrel!

Why do we Have a Topiary Donkey?

Posted by Sharkey

We dogs were sitting at the kitchen door the other day watching the world go by, when I spotted a very strange thing out in the courtyard.  After investigating, I found out that this object was sent from a place in Brooklyn, NY called Dig Gardens.   Now we just have to figure out why?

Posted by F&S

Now that it’s winter, food is becoming scarce for many animals in the wild.  In fact, it has been brought to our attention that a couple of hungry red foxes have been spotted very near to our house.  While we, Frenchies, are being very cautious outdoors, we did come across something very interesting the other …
