Greetings from the king

His Royal-Archiness, King of Tinsel-ville (wearing the royal tinsel), sends his greetings to his loyal subjects & reminds them that it is their solemn duty to use as much tinsel as they possibly can when decorating their homes & businesses.

He would also like to add that there is no need to actually be solemn during this process - high spirits, laughter & even singing (especially of carols) is acceptable.

that is all.

a happy puppy

Some shots from October, it was warm and we went to the forest. Archie was hot but happy!
Same day as this post.

just a touch of Archie-ness from the archives - about a year & a half ago.

sit, wait, come

I'm calling this game sit, wait, come because it doesn't actually have a name.
It's a simple game, ask him to sit and wait then back away, say okay, call him and watch the cuteness that is Archie running.

On the 10th of November, 2008, the world was changed forever...

That's right, people, it's the poochie-boo's birthday today.
He's 3 years old now (that's 21 in dog years) but still clinging to the last strands of puppy rottenness and misbehavior. He may grow out (or be trained out) of that, but somehow I don't think his goofy doofus-ness will ever fade, nor would we ever want it to.

Happy birthday to the pooch
Happy birthday to the pooch
Happy birthday dear poochie-bum
Happy birthday to the pooch!

Archie loves it when Mum roughs him up;

And when he was just a few months old;

The Return of Poochie McWoofington

Once a rugged pirate who collected seeds without mercy, now a gentleman who...still collects seeds but only a few.

Archie got a long awaited haircut this week. We took him to a new place which sounded like doggy heaven, fed treats and played with, and the reports show he had a good time and the result was satisfactory.

a special day...

It was my lovely Amy's birthday today.
I took her for a walk, let Kathryn brush me until I was super soft, gave her cuddles & my people made loud noises for her, fed her special food & gave her things. I think she had a good day.

Happy Birthday Amy!

love & licks

Archie and the Ugly Toy

While investigating a box of projects, we found an old frog toy of Archie's and the squeaker and legs of another. Christopher made a temporary toy for Archie and Archie went mad, he loved it. The little guy tuckered himself out that night playing with it and taking it apart.

We decided he could keep it until a proper one was made and then one night we wondered what Archie was eating. Turns out it he had torn a hole in the sock and chewed through the squeaker.

He still likes it, even without the squeaker.

A Daily Dose of Cuteness: day 7

A scheduled extra early post as requested by Archie so Vickie may view his cuteness before she packs up to return to him.

A Daily Dose of Cuteness: day 6

Two of Archie's favourite people left today, meaning Archie is down 3 favourite people! But when I told him they would be back soon he was pleased.

[Archie] I am told my family will return soon, meaning 8 of my 8 favourite people will be with me. This thought is satisfying. I will ponder it a while...*snooze*

A Daily Dose of Cuteness: day 4

Today something extra special!
A painting of Archie by James, one of Archie's eight favourite people!
You may recognise the picture, it features as a photo in this post about Archie's new 'coat'.
Don't forget to check out James' sketchbook, it's full of Archie approved images.

A Daily Dose of Cuteness: day 3

Archie was a little funny this morning but is fine now! Perhaps it was the rainy weather or sympathy for Christopher?

A shot from yesterday as I forgot about taking one today. There may be an extra special picture tomorrow...
