Our Pal Jackson


Our pal Jackson,who is our wire fox terrier leader has received some bad health news.....Now our pal is a fighter and we are hoping he is able to fight his way through this one........There are a lot of stuffies out there that still need the Jackson test for destruction....(he is the king of this.....)



Our pals Scruffy,Lacie,Stanley and Mumsie very eloquently wrote of our pal and put up this picture of Mount Everst with prayer flags....and so we are adding it too....

We also want to post this Navajo healing prayer poem. When someone is sick everyone comes together to the person's house at night and recites this together. Now we are scattered all over the world but we are a tight community,so we want everyone to recite this together and it will be as if we are one ......




House made of dawn

House made of evening light

House made of dark cloud

Dark cloud is at this house's door,

The trail out of it is dark cloud

The zigzag lightening stands high upon it

Happily, may I walk.

Happily, with abundant showers, may I walk

Happily, with abundant plants, may I walk

Happily, on the trail of pollen may I walk.

Happily, may I walk.

May it be beautiful before me.

May it be beautiful behind me.
May it be beautiful below me.

May it be beautiful above me.

May it be beautiful all around me.

In beauty it is finished.




Archie has also read that the power of laughter is good and very healing......so hope this helps Jax.................

Not to be believed..........

Well it had to happen..and THANKFULLY it happened with us and PL1 not PL2 because she would have FAINTED(see who Archie takes after????) Now remember awhile back we were telling you about our Arboretum having coyotes?????And they put this sign up at the beginning of the Arboretum( which WAS NOT THERE when we brought our famous visitors Lenny and Sophie ....)



Ladies and gentlemen and all hammies, I am now going to reenact the day that my brother and I and PL1 had today....... because.OF COURSE PL1 did not have his camera!! It was a lovely summer day and PL1 said "let's go you guys and play and swim at the Arboretum( the THIRD time this week!!!) WOOHOO!! and off we went. Now it was hot here so I went to the little stream( not the one we went to Sophie another one).....and really had a nice swim...............( remember this is a reenactment...)

Here I am in the little stream.....(use a little imagination here...)swimming away....





WAIT...DID I HEAR SOMETHING????????





MAYBE OVER THERE??? Oh it was nothing.......let's continue our walk.......





We walked down one of our favorite paths...( we took Ms Sophina RIGHT DOWN HERE.........)







And there SMACK IN FRONT OF ALL THREE OF US WAS THIS..............................( this is not him but a picture of what we saw) A COYOTE........ok brace yourself.....WITH FRESH KILL IN HIS MOUTH( this is the part where PL2 would have fainted and been OOT(out of there, history see ya later by, in awhile crocodile....) But the coyote walked away about 20 feet dropped his kill which was a racoon,and looked at the three of us( PL2 would have been home already...) ( archie thought it was our racoon stuffie....)


PL1 walked away and went to go tell some people who work in the gardens there.....AND WE WENT BACK TO SHOW THEM WHERE HE WAS(PL2 would be in New York by now visiting Petey and Asta)AND HE WAS MUNCHING AWAY.....( PL2 would have not held on to her lunch if ya get my drift......) Archie was sooo nervous he kept asking the coyote if he wanted him to show him the best roaching spot where he has been taking all his DWB friends....OMG he is not to be believed...........ROACH WITH A COYOTE WITH FRESH KILL IN HIS MOUTH???????
Uh Arch....and PL1 I said I think we should slowly get out of here while this kid has his lunch......Now PL1 thought although scary it was really cool and immediately called PL2 who happened to be at work,where it was a wee bit hard to talk while she was at the patients bedside..........BUT SHE FREAKED OUT!!!!!!! And she told everyone at work that she was NEVER going there again ,ever ever ever and this was Boston for crying out loud and then she felt really badly for the coyote but not badly enough to ever go there again...AND this kid was not scrawny,so he has been eating well if you know what I mean.....


Archie has been slightly stuttering ever since then and he fell into a deep sleep and when he woke up said he was having a bad dream.........


I was thinking about it too and think although it was cool,and I am a Great Safari Hunter and everything............


...it did make me toss and turn in my bomb shelter..........




As for PL2?????the Arboretum is history for her( which is a shame because she really does love it......) Maybe if we go in a coat of armor.....)

This set takes place in her hotel lobby......now in this scene she pretends to not catch the ball but in reality she just wanted to check out who was in the window( isn't that brilliant?)

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!!!!!!

A tag and getting ready

Well our pals Petey and Penny,Poppy and Patches tagged Archie so he is going to play.......I am getting ready for Sophies visit.I will let my brother go first although I think I am going to regret this......



What is your name? Archie


What is your full name?Superior Archie( really no kidding that is my kennel name...)

If you could change your name, what would it be? King Archie ruler of the Universe

What's your pet's name? Agatha( ha ha hee hee oh boy.....that is good)

If you could change your pet's name, what would it be? Ummmmm I better not answer this one or I could get into a lot of trouble

What's your brother or sister's name? hhmmph Agatha

If you could change their name, what would it be? Plead the fifth again



OK that is quite enough from him..I KNEW that wouldn't be good...There is another tag going around about what is on your frig..We think this is a really good one for us AS OUR FRIG BROKE!!!!!! Oh yeah....this is just great..in the middle of the summer..We have 2 coolers with ice that has to be changed.. alot.. and we LOVE to eat and that is NOT enough room for all of us... PL1+2 have been eating out a lot( like they are sad about that) and the new frig is coming on Thursday..I hope we can make it.. but here is what is on the old frig( and PL2 said NO MORE STUFF WILL BE ALLOWED ON THE NEW FRIG...yeah right...)
Can you see the picture of the Welsh Terrier above the I "heart" welsh terrier sign? That is Reggie, PL1+2's dog before us.See that there is a piece of a twenty dollar bill in with his picture? One day they came home and opened the door and found this piece of the bill.... and not the other piece..because he ATE it !!!! What a kid! He sounds like he was a barrel of laughs! We wish we could have known him!!!!



Are you picking up on the theme of this frig?????

I have been getting ready for Ms Sophies visit. I bought a new blender and fixed up my bomb shelter. But Archie said she might not fit under there so I pulled out a lot of my toys so she has easy access to them..............



Archie has been doing some painting to spruce up the place.. only thing is no one quite knows where he is painting and where he got this pink paint on his foot from......

I am just taking a small nap before I continue on..........

INCROYABLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

Well hold on to your hats(especially you Mr Stains.........) this is almost too much for us.....( you probably already know from Toffee but we are a little behind the times) As if it were not enough for us to meet the incredible Lenny with Toffe and Riley at OUR ARBORETUM.....we are going to be taking someone also there......It is almost to much to write her name she is sooooooooo famous........ We will give you a clue....
....
Do you know who it is???????? Here is another clue...this is her when she was with the Russian Ballet.............
Still unsure???Here is a dead give away..............
MS SOPHINA LA BRADOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(we are not sure if sock monkey is making the trip but as he is so close to Ms Sophie and as she is not a terrier and does not rip open her stuffies in nano seconds, he may come......)
We are ready.................

ONSTRIKE..THAT IS IT......NO MORE

PL2 said to us today Well guys it is time to make our famous dehydrator sweet potato chews that you love so much...(beg your pardon it is the ones in the bag we love but she goes to alot of trouble to do this for us so we meekly said..) OK PL2 thanks......Archie was rolling his eyes and left the room. So PL2 went to get the sweet potatoes.....Now ladies +gentlemen and hammies we have to warn you.... THIS IS NOT PRETTY................if you have a weak stomach do not read any further..or if you are a sweet potato purist hide your heads under your paws.........
WHAT THE H@#$@LL is this???????????????????




AND THIS??????An alien has invaded our kitchen and she thinks she is going to make us CHEWIES out of this????????



Archie ran to get his cell phone to call on the main line so PL2 would be diverted to answer the phone...I quickly threw out the aliens.......


And replaced them with this...If she doesn't get the message now we have vowed to never eat them again.......

On strike........
