Real Champions Like to be Groomed

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

I, G.K., was told that I had to go and visit a dog groomer because I was to make my acting debut in a PetSmart commercial.  I have been given baths and brush outs at home, but I had never been to a groomer before.  You might expect a little pup like me to be …

How to Move a Fire Pit

Last week, Martha went antiquing and found a gigantic metal vat and she thought it would be great to use as an outdoor fire pit.  It was too big for her to take, so she sent Uncle Carlos with the pickup and, of course, he took us along for the ride.  It wasn’t such an …

Recently, Carlos was asked to deliver some chairs from Bedford to Kevin’s office in New York City.  Kevin needed them for a photo shoot.  You know, moving furniture is challenging and very strenuous.  So, when Carlos asked for my help, I was happy to oblige.  Sharkey saw me struggling and when I asked for a …

After we went shopping with Martha at The Home Depot, we remembered that Uncle Marc Morrone has a great store called Parrots of the World Ltd., located in Rockville Centre, New York on Long Island.  We love visiting all the animals and asked Martha and Uncle Carlos if we could stop there.  As usual, we …

This past weekend, Martha dressed us in our Lion Brand Yarn www.lionbrand.com sweaters and told Carlos to get the car ready for a road trip.  She wanted to drive to East Hampton to check on the house.  Of course, there were stops to make along the way, including one to The Home Depot.  We, Frenchies, …

We Frenchies hope you all had a very pleasant Thanksgiving.  Martha decided not to cook dinner at home this year.  Instead, we went to New York City where we met up with Kevin and Alexis.  We spent the whole day walking and sightseeing and visited many friends.  It was fun and quite an adventure.
