Dreaming of Guacamole?

Dreaming of Guacamole?

Posted by Sharkey

I was looking around the kitchen the other day when I happened upon Tang, one of the calico Persian cats who shares our home.  She was fast asleep in the bowl Martha uses to make her guacamole.  I thought that Tang looked rather cute, but when Franny saw her, she had another idea.

In Search of New Friends

In Search of New Friends

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

I’ve been living at the farm for quite some time now and as nice as Francesca and Sharkey have been to me, I feel that I should really find some more friends to spend time with.  The Kawasaki was available the other day, so I jumped on and took a little ride down to the …

Our Maine Weekend Aftermath

Posted by F&S

Travelling with Martha is so much fun and she takes us to some really beautiful places.  This past weekend, we were running all around Acadia National Park in Maine.  We also spent a good deal of time exploring Skylands, our home in Seal Harbor.  Martha was doing some entertaining and there were many interesting guests.  …

That Crazy Vivaldi!!

Posted by Sharkey

I was out in the garden yesterday when I came across Vivaldi the cat.  He was acting so weird rolling around on an herb called Nepeta, also known as catnip.  He was actually making a big fool of himself. You may recall reading a blog about this same thing last year.   Take a …

The Frenchie Chef

Yesterday, Franny and I blogged about how hot it’s been outside at the farm.  Because of the intense heat, Martha wants us to spend most of the day inside so that we don’t get over heated.  To entertain ourselves during this confinement, we decided to shoot our own baking show.  We set up the necessary …

Fly Predators to the Rescue!

Posted by Sharkey

Franny and I were wondering why the horses and the donkeys were wearing masks when they were outdoors.  We went to ask Betsy and she gave us a lesson in Fly Predators.  It turns out that Fly Predators are the good guys who work to get rid of the bad pest flies.  It’s really an …

What's Bright Red and Fuzzy all Over?

Posted by Sharkey

The other day when Franny and I were outside, I spied something bright red sitting out in one of the fields.  Of course, being a most curious Frenchie, I trotted out to see what it was.  I was very surprised to find one of the new items from Martha’s PetSmart line.  Please be patient, dear …

Frenchie Bocce Anyone?

Frenchie Bocce Anyone?

Posted by Francesca

Bocce, in one form or another, is one of the world’s most popular ball games.  Its popularity is nothing new:  Roman soldiers played it, probably with round stones, while they waited to fight the Punic Wars.  In 1388, England’s Richard II actually outlawed bocce because he worried that his subjects were spending too little time …

Sharkey is a Basket Case!

Sharkey and I were enjoying the great outdoors when I decided to give squirrel chasing a rest and explore a little nearby building.  The contents were quite amazing and it got my wheels turning.  Of course, getting Sharkey to cooperate is another story.

What's Down the Squirrel Hole Anyway?

What's Down the Squirrel Hole Anyway?

Posted by Francesca

Sharkey and I were outside yesterday when quite suddenly, a very strange sensation came over us.  It was almost savage and we wanted squirrel.  Hunting is fun but it is also difficult.  Good thing we are fed on a regular basis.
