Yesterday was bath time for us, Frenchies.  You may recall that I don’t mind a good bath but Sharkey, on the other paw, kind of freaks out at the very mention of one.

As you may remember, G.K. was whisked away to another dog show and was supposed to return on Monday.  However, Karen Tracy didn’t bring him back until yesterday and we Frenchies missed him for another whole day.

Well, it’s happened again.  G.K. has gone off to another dog show.  We Frenchies feel a real sense of void when he’s gone but, he is a great show dog.

On a recent blog, we told you about all of the rose bushes that were dug up at our home in East Hampton and brought to our farm in Bedford, where they are all being planted.  It will be a beautiful garden with roses galore!  Ryan, the gardener, took photos for Martha’s blog when he …

GK Went to the Groomer

Posted by F&S

It’s very important that dogs be groomed on a regular basis, to ensure that the pet is healthy and comfortable.  We Frenchies are groomed in the basement laundry room, but GK, who has thick chow fur, requires a professional to do the job.  Yesterday, GK had an appointment at Stonybrook Pet Spa in Harrison, New …

On Labor Day weekend, we went to our house in East Hampton where we spent a few days of action-packed fun.  We had lots of company and we did a great deal of exploring.  Kevin Sharkey, who I’m named after, was with us with camera in hand.  Give me a break, Kevin!

Today, on Martha’s blog Ryan McCallister, the Bedford gardener, is featured prominently showing how to propagate hydrangeas from cuttings.  We got to thinking that maybe we should feature Ryan on our blog, too, and pulled these photos from our archive, taken during one of Ryan’s visit to Skylands, our home in Maine.

If you got the impression from yesterday’s blog that we weren’t having too much fun in Maine, that simply isn’t the case.  We were just stating the fact that not everything is fun and games and worldly dogs, as we are, experience lulls just like everybody else.  But, today’s blog makes up for everything because …
