We keep talking about what a mild winter it’s been.  Driving around the farm the other day, we observed a lot of action going on in the vegetable garden.  I guess if it’s going to be unseasonably warm, you might as well take advantage of the situation!

There are less than two weeks until G.K. makes his big debut at The Westminster Kennel Club dog show.  We, Frenchies, are hoping for the best, of course, and in the meantime, we are seeing to some of G.K.’s basic grooming needs.  A dog must look his or her best at Westminster!

Last week, Francesca blogged about me travelling to Maryland to compete in another dog show.  With the Westminster Kennel Club Show quickly approaching, my breeder, Karen Tracy and my handler, Jan Kolnik want me to get as much experience as possible.  Here are Karen’s photos showing what happened in Maryland.

We, Frenchies, went to the vegetable garden to see if there was anything left to pick.  We’ve had some pretty heavy frosts at the farm, so we weren’t exactly holding out breath.  After rooting around a bit, we realized that someone had already beaten us to it!

Today is December 13th, which makes it Francesca’s birthday.  Good thing I remembered because last year I forgot and I haven’t heard the end of it ever since!  This year, I even got creative in the kitchen and made a special treat.
