Bartok, the Model? Arf!!!

Posted by F&S

We, Frenchies, were wondering why Bartok, Empress Tang, and Princess Peony were given special baths and combed out so thoroughly and then whisked away in cat carriers.  Laura Acuna also went on this mystery trip.  Well, we were flipping through some new photo albums on Martha’s computer and came across these captioned pictures and thought …

Filling Bird Feeders

Posted by Francesca

After basking in the nice warm springtime sun, Sharkey and I decided to have a look around when we spotted Gyurme busy with chores.  It turns out that he was filling the bird feeders, which hang from the eaves of the carport/blog studio.  We decided to help him because this is a big job, as …

Arriving at Skylands With the Trailer

Posted by Ghenghis Khan

Do you remember last week when Sharkey and I went to Maine with Uncle Carlos?  Many of you readers expressed nervousness about road trips with Uncle Carlos, wondering about his intentions.  You are all so silly!  We got to Maine just fine and I even helped unload the trailer.  And obviously, since I’m blogging about …

G.K. and I Visit the TV Studio

Posted by Sharkey

Uncle Carlos took Francesca to visit the French bulldog breeder in Maryland, who wanted to talk to Franny about why Frenchies shouldn’t head-butt their owners, or anyone else, for that matter.  It was lonely while she was gone, so Martha suggested that G.K. and I visit the TV studio.  As you will see from these …

G.K. the Tech Dog

I was visiting Susie in her office in the stable when she told me that she was having problems with the copier machine.  You may not know this about me, but I’m something of a tech guru.  Susie and Maureen looked doubtful when I volunteered my services, but they were soon very impressed.

The Art of Extracting Honey

The Art of Extracting Honey

Posted by Sharkey

Well, we finally got around to extracting the honey from the beehives.  Carlos seemed to bee a bit frazzled, so I offered to be of assistance.  The whole process is rather time consuming.  The honey tastes really, really good – very herbal and light.  Thank you honeybees for providing again.
