As if it couldn't get any better,,we got THESE!!



Well we truly thought it couldn't get any better but it did...Look what we got..Our bananas and winter coats..MADE BY BUTCHY AND SNICKERS MOM,who is THE BEST IN THE WORLD!!! You can't believe what the material for the bananas is.....WFT"S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now we have to forewarn you...PL 2 took these pics and we were in a silly mood and
she really wanted PL1 to help her,but he is muttering about having 43million papers that have to be graded by tomorrow so he couldn't help right now.....sooooooo Pl2 is going to get much better shots but she just wanted everyone to see how lovely they are!!


Here is a pic of the WFT's on the banana material..one has a closed mouth.........






And the other(mine) has an open mouth (which Archie says is mine because I always give him lip,and PL2 says is because I am a piggie...hummph,neither a satisfactory answer.I think it is because I am so verbose and talkative on world matters...)




Now PL2 and I told Archie we were going to pose and as you can see in this picture,Archie took it very,very seriously.....







PL2 is getting a little silly here,because we weren't exactly,how should I say,compliant....

I am not amused.......


Being a super model is very hard work and EXHAUSTING.........



OK here is my coat....It may look familiar,because Asta has the same one!! I was so taken with it,and the color is so me,and she let me try it on when we went shopping with Lacie and Koobus and I just fell in love with it.........





I am not modeling it as well as Asta did because I am getting a little scoochie and PL2 is having some issues.....






Now we would like to present Mr Handsome..the one. the only,the best dressed boy of Boston.....Master Archie(who PL2 thinks looks like a little English schoolboy....don't ask...I told you she was having "issues"


Archie wanted to show you the top of the coat......


Tomorrow is the Boston Red Sox Parade so we think we are going to wear our bananas.Too bad PL1+2 have to work and can't go...tee hee....So if you want a lovely banana or coat(LET IT SNOW LET IT SNOW LET IT SNOW) talk to Butchy and Snickers Mom(look for her site on our list of friends)We think EVERY doggy and hammie should have these..and we promise to show more professional pics when PL1 has finished his paper marking if he is still sane........ )

WE LOVE THIS TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

(almost as much as we love PL1+2's socks........)



OUR RED SOX


WHEW......................................

Well we can barely type but wanted to get these pictures off to you.What a barkday party......fabulous..our roving reporter Asta took a trillion pictures in Salem( what goes on in Salem stays in Salem right Stanley??) and we have a few shots of our Boston tour.....We decided on the trolley that will let our ears flap and let us sniff the ocean .....




Here is a little map of all the places we went to.......



Of course we had to stop at Cheers..most of us put our costumes back on for the ride.....Look at Harry making sure everyone is doing ok!!(He was a little like a chaperone until he really let loose.......tee hee)One of the barkday girls,Ms Lola is chatting up Dunstan who was looking to see where Lacie was......


Here we are in Harvard Yard.Agatha discovered that if she pressed a certain button on her costume it would float her up in the air(or maybe she just ate too many beans...)Joey is looking for Tanner,who still in the pumpkin can ,rolled out of the Yard......





Next stop was the State House.......



and of course the Swan Boats..Look at Blue in disguise!!!!





we don't have much time because Scruffy has tickets to the baseball game tonight..WOOHOO!! and we have to go get ready!!!! ( I hope Gussie remembered the doggie bag for Muzzer)

A snowball,something sweet, and the PAHHTY house

OK to continue from yesterday's post....we weren't tired when we woke up,but then we went to the beach(a whole nother story to tell you about) as it was like summer today and now we are tired again!!!!!! First off we will add the snowball (despite the fact that it is 75 degrees out!!!!!)



Let it snow !~You have just been hit with a blog snow ball!~ It's the start of..... Snow Ball Fight 2007!! & 2008!! One rule to this game.... You can NOT hit someone who has already hit you! Now... go out there and get as many people as you can, before they get you! I got you first! and you can't get me back! Nanee - Nanee - Nanee! We do not stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing. Never Be The First To Get Old!!!!!



And then our dear friend Blue gave us this.......(it makes me hungry just looking at it!!!!Thankyou Blue. I think I would like to send it to Molly and Taffy because..... they are!!!




Th first thing we did when we got there was to reserve a trolley bus for all of us for the next day's trip to Boston.(Archie wants you to note the sign to the right of the sign up place)






We just don't know whether to pick this bus(Archies favorite because you can watch videos and cartoons in the bus and they have snacks).......






Or this one(my favorite because it is open and we can sniff at the air and let our ears flap in the wind...)

So we reserved both and can take a vote at the party!!!! On we went to check out the house....
They said they are all ready for us and we can start bringing in the "refreshments" whenever we like(Lacie they have a HUGE frig)






Here is the back of the house...now I ask you...does that look scary??And check out the backyard,we can do some serious roaching and running!!!!( and


have a BBQ!!!)
And at the end of the backyard....we have the ocean!!We can do some serious swimming!!





And if anyone want to spends the night after the pahhty in a cute little B and B we found one RIGHT NEXT TO the House of Seven Gables!! Isn't it adorable!!






Archie would like you to take a close look at the front yard and then decide if you still want to stay there!!!!

Now Archie wants to reassure all his doggy and hammie friends who may be a little "nervous" to be in SALEM the HALOWEEN CAPITAL OF THE WORLD AND WITCH CITY..that there will be some other activitiesto participate in,such as this fair that you can go to......




Nothing spooky or scary about that......EXCEPT THAT IT IS ON THE SALEM COMMONS WHERE ALL KINDS OF CREEPY THINGS TAKE PLACE AND IS RIGHT NEXT TO THE WITCH MUSEUM!!!!!!!( isn't it fun being a sister???)

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......
