Day 6 of Captivity


Archie here.....I just want to thank everyone for your kind words and thought I would tell you myself how things are going for me as a prisoner in the laundry room .First of all I feel MUCH better but PL2 said that after tomorrow will be a trial because I will be stopping my anti-inflammatory(whatever that is)but I must continue in semi exile for another week after that,and then I will get to begin my mini walks(and I am talking mini,like 5 minutes for the first one!!!!!!!!!!)




My sister has been taking this fairly well but she says it is very trying and she is exhausted herself(that is her crashed out below) PL1+2 have not let her go the bomb shelter because that room is one of my FAVORITE rooms because I can go on top of the shelter and look out the window and bark at everyone,but she is taking it well. They were afraid I would get (as we say in Boston) WICKED jealous cause I would see her from the laundry room .Actually they will have to do a little remodeling in there because the girls( my nursing staff of Lacie,Asta and Koobus) while ahem playing in the bomb shelter put a barbecue pit in there and blasted through the wall........)

I thought I would show you my digs. This is me doing pretty much what I have been doing a lot of!!!!! SLEEPING!This is the entrance to my pad.....



This is my crate which is always there......You can't really see the flat screen TV from this view.I have been watching alot of HBO because Tanner always says it is a great channel.He is @#$*! right!!!!




This is a new addition.On the first few days of captivity it was the only bed I would sleep in and I kept dragging it to this spot( I didn't have too many places to go with as you can see) The funny thing is, It is Agatha's and is usually in the kitchen.....




Here is a different view of the whole place and that is Agatha realizing that her bed is in there.....



I think in the picture below she is muttering something about not even being asked and look I am on the stinking floor and when will this be over ,when will this be over.....



But best of all we have been able to stay together(except a few times when I tried to get Agatha to chase me and run only I didn't exactly know where I was going to go because the whole place is shut off to us...But it is good to be with her..........

Love ya lots,

Hi, Archie
I like your pad. Maybe not too big but enough for you to stay comfy.
I know how much you want to be playing and running but sure it will be possible pretty soon.
Kisses and hugs

You guys are being so good...except maybe for the barbecue pit. We hope you continue to improve so you can come to the pawty

Arch, looks like you have pretty good pad, even though it is small at the moment. And, I OFTEN take one my my sisters' beds over. It makes it so much more delightful if I am sleeping where I know that they want to. BOL.

Although, when I am not with my sisters, I get blue, too. They left me last night to go to agility and flyball, so I left Mother a nice "prezzie." BOL.

If you need male bonding time, let me know. I can just pop over with beer, fine scotch, edibles and comfy beds and we can watch HBO on your $##$ flat screen.

Hey A & A, we're glad you two still get to be together. The laundry makes a great pad.
You'll be right as rain soon Archie and running around like a crazy dog.

Take care

hi A&A, we are happy to see that Archie is in such a nice place. it doesn't look like a prison at all. and it's great that the 2 of you get to be together. so basically, you are both on bed rest. we like to watch animal planet when mom leaves us home alone, probably 'cuz we don't have HBO. but we like all of the animals and Bailey barks at all of the dogs.

thanks for your comments about Benson. our mom knows to have a lot of money for the vets. they like to be rich and for us to be poor.... hee hee

This must be tough on both of you. Your sister will be well soon and you can spend more time together. You both have something to look forward to.

Scruffy & Lacie said...

Hmm...what's with the $#@^*^%$ HBO...did we miss somefing here???

Um...didn't the bomb shelter room need to be remodeled, Agatha? I mean didn't you say you wanted a flat screen under there so you could watch...ya know...HBO!!

PL2 got the hospital room set up perfectly for Archie...too bad he seems to have left. Check ur peemail. And our bloggie...

We'll talk soon...
Lacie

Koobuss said...

Oh, poor Archie. What a shame that you have to be so confined. You must feel like you are in jail. But at least you are not alone all day. Agatha is good company for you and I am sure that she helps to keep you from getting too bored.

Good luck in your recovery! Hang in there, pal! It is winter out, so you really aren't missing too much.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

Joe Stains said...

can you apologize to your parents on my behalf if they are offended by the language learned on HBO?? I am glad you have such nice accommodations!

Molly and Taffy said...

Hi Agathe and Archie

Everything certainly looks cosy in your den. Just keep taking it easy Archie and make the most of all the pampering and you will be out and about really soon.

Hi guys I've been so caught up in my own life recently i have not been to read your post.Sorry.
Im so sorry about your knees They must have been really sore. Its horrid having to be put in the laundry room but im sure this will help you in the long run, stopping you from running and the rough and tumble of play.I hope you are recovering well hang in there.
I was a bit worried in the 2nd pic I thought one of your ears had fallen off too. hahahaha I think it must be a leg off one of your toys .
Keep resting up.
Ludo the cool dude.
