A Spectacular Day in the lives of A+A!


We can barely lift our heads off of our little pilllows because of the day we had yesterday!! It was the perfect New England fall day,crisp,bright,sunny, leaves changing, and then PL1+2 told us that it was EARTHDOG TIME!!!!!!!!!
Archie got so excited that he crumpled the paper by mistake but this is where we went.The funny thing was there weren't a lot of Westies there!!This is where we registered when we got there.



Here I am getting REALLY excited.......





And here is Archie getting excited too!!!!!!





Here we are meeting some of the competition. Remember Roxanne,Agatha's girlfriend from her first event? Well she came too and there she is!!



Here we are CHOMPING AT THE BIT..........










Here we are listening to the Judges instructions. Archie is really paying close attention to get it all down.....




OK here I am waiting to go into the woods into the RAT TUNNEL!! PL2 said I was shaking( well wouldn't you??) As you are all well aware of by now,PL1+2 are not exactly Fellinis with the old movie camera and despite their best attempts, were not able to,take off our collars, hold on to us, and let us down by the tunnel and whip out the old movie camera.(one at a time!!) So there are no movies or pictures of us at the tunnel but I employed the same stealth bomber approach as the last time,with the old sneak attack and then BLAM!!!!! right at them(PL2 would like me to add that the rats were tranquilzed and in a cage) And I passed!! and now I can go to the Junior level!!!!!





Now here is PL1 going in with Archie. I told Arch to relax,take deep breathes and try my stealth bomber approach....AND HE PASSED TOO!!!!!!!!! So he can go on to Junior level too!! We could have waited and tried it later on that afternoon,but we had to go to Marblehead to watch the football game with our cousin Mona the Golden Retriever.(we know where our priorities are hmmm) Well PL1+2 felt so bad about not letting us try the Junior level that they decided that as Salem was on the way to Marblehead we could stop in and check things out for the big paahhty!!!!!!




So we drove into Salem....(Archie started to get a little nervous but we told him IT WAS DAYLIGHT.......)



It did not help Archie to see this old hearse the minute we entered Salem....







or this........





or this........







And this truly did not help......




We will tell everyone tomorrow about the House of the Seven Gables,but we don't want this to get too long!! We watched the football game(which was wicked as we say here) and played outside in the yard,and then came home,and watched the Red Sox Game(which was as we say in Boston,a " wicked pisser game".We were exhausted from all this amd then we found out that our friend Blue had given us the "sweetest" thing( we will show you tomorrow!! )There was so much going on in Boston today( Earthdog, Red Sox,Patriots, The Charles Regatta.......We think we truly live in the Hub of the Universe!!!!)
To be continued......

congratulations to both of you. We are rooting for Curt Schiller, but not the rest of the team. Muzzer has a "thing" for him from his time with the dumbBacks.

ooooh, my mom loves Westies!! She was actually thinking about getting one a while back. You know what?!!! I thought I saw one of you last night. We were walking down the street and I saw one of you pop out the front door of a house a ways up the block. I was yelling, Archie!!! Agatha!!!! But which ever one of you it was, you wouldn't look back. My mom said, Sophie, shut up. It's not Archie or Agatha or even Asta. They don't live in Montreal. But I just know it had to be one of you. Who else could be so cute. Next time one of you is in Montreal, you must call. We'll go for kibble and a walk.
