IT WAS INCROYABLE!!!(UNBELIEVABLE!!) or how Archie fainted a thousand times just knowing he was standing next to the most famous dog EVER

She walked into OUR ARBORETUM wearing this.......







All eyes turned to look at her......what a CLASSY STYLISH DOG they murmured.......She must be from another country...she has got class.........and where did she EVER get a collar like that??????they whispered...We have to get one.... now..........YES IT IS SOPHIE IN OUR ABORETUM.......I have to tell you....Archie has been a NERVOUS wreck( hard to believe I know) He kept practising what he was going to say to her when he met her, and then he thought he would learn a little french to make her feel at home( you think this is easy living with him?????? He even wanted to wear his red bow tie because it was Sophie for goodness sake but it was about a million degrees out so I put my paw down on that one....) He has fainted with anxiety at just the thought of meeting someone so famous.......And here we are...........When Sophie talks.....everyone listens....( it is kind of like the Dhali Lama)........Notice how we are staring at her with admiration?????






Archie still couldn't believe it was really her........







You got it right...MS SOHIE IN OUR ROACHING SPOT!!!!! YES where we took Lennie too!!! Archie said he is going to ask the Arboretum people( I told him that would be HARVARD) if he can put a plaque up there making it a DWB roaching spot.....




I can not tell a lie....just seeing her there in our roaching spot made me fall to the floor(I got a little overwhelmed by it all)





It was soooo hot I thought we had better take a dip in the stream......






THERE SHE IS.......IN OUR STREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

















Do you notice Archie? He has probably fainted somewhere....








Look at her...so regal WALKING IN OUR ARBORETUM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!







Here is Archie telling her some stupid joke( probably the same one he told Lennie , he only knows about 2 jokes) and it BETTER NOT have been about me......









Here is Sophie being polite and laughing at his stupid little joke.....( or maybe at his ATTEMPT at french....)









OK you have GOT TO CHECK THIS OUT....how cool, how suave, WHAT A MOVE... Sophie slowly walked up to be next to PL1 who was with Archie.......ON THE SAME SIDE AS HIS COOKIE BAG.......BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He wouldn't even KNOW if she dipped into it!!!!!!









Here I am trying this maneuver and Sophie is giving me pointers.....I will really have to practice










We gave Sophie a lobster..well she is in Boston...










Now for the grand finale......here she is with a tennis ball...........









In the lobby of the hotel............( PL1+2 and Sophie's Mom were having that free wine in the lobby from 4 to 6, so these pictures may be a bit blurry if you get my drift)





Nooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! Blogger will not let us put this film of Sophie the right way!!!! (and NO it is not becasue it was filmed at the 4 to 6 wine in the lobby party)Well you will have to turn your heads to see this STUNNING finale of Sophie CATCHING THE BALL IN THE AIR!!!!!!!!!PL2 has tried for about an hour to turn this film the right way but can't....she is bummed....we are ZONKED OUT...and proably will be tomorrow too..........What a day.........Au revoir mes amies!!!!!!

Free wine?? Did you say free wine??...I get to HEAR free WHINE all of the time from my mom but it is not the same...why oh why?? It looks like you all had such a great time! I know you did because it was Ms. Brador and her human!! And we met too! I am so glad that you had a chance to meet up during Sophie's tour of greatness!

Koobuss said...

My, Archie...

Sofie is really beautiful and very elegant. A true lady.

But, I never realized that you were so smitten. Does Lacie know? I think that she has a crush on you. You may have a bit of a problem here, Archie.

Free wine is always good. Perhaps you should have some, Arch.


Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Koobie

If I could put into words how jealous I am right now I would. But I can't. I might faint just trying. Oh dog, I am so glad you guys had such a good time and didn't get totally rained out. Tell Archie he was surprisingly well behaved.

oh we are so impressed. ms Sophie looks right at home in your arboretum. you were wonderful host & hostess to her. she is lovely and we can tell she really liked you two. we hope her scent will stay in your roaching spot for a long time so you can always smell her there.

excellent ball catching too.

Sophie Brador said...

A & A! It was so great to meet you and your PLs. You have such a beautiful arboretum and city. Mom says your PLs are the best tour guides. She says thank you, thank you, thank you! I say, it was an honour to meet both of you and to wade in your creek. My apologies for not roaching, but should I ever come back in the winter, I will for sure!

It doesn't surprise me that Archie was overcome in Sophie's presence. She is so regal and elegant. Glad you had a great time showing her around your arboretum. I'm sure she enjoyed your hospitality.

Your friend,
