HAPPY NEW YEAR DEAR PALS!!!!!!


Happy New Year


Well, It sort of snuck up on us!! It has been a difficult year for all of us at DWB's and we have lost many dear dear friends and have had many other dear friends both dogs and PL's who have become sick. But the amazing thing about it all is through it all we have had each other to lean on. And we will all continue to lean on each other...... so....So Archie and I and PL1+2 would like to raise our glasses and toast all of our dearest pals in DWB land both 2 and 4 legged....We wish for all of you a Happy Healthy Peaceful New Year( oh and throw in lots of treats, toys ,games, walks, tummy rubs and kisses...but maybe not a clam shell bed.....) and we would like to leave you with this quote.....

"No matter what other doubts we may entertain,we can not question the reality of friendship.And in a world where so little is certain, that is a great deal."
Milton Steinberg,As a Driven Leaf

HAPPY NEW YEAR DEAR PALS!!!!!
AGATHA AND ARCHIE AND PL1 and PL2

ARE YOU KIDDING ME??????????????

Well the day we have been waiting for finally came! Remember those cool beds that PL2 and I ordered?? Well they came all right.Archie and I had been talking for weeks about where we would put them and how comfortable they would be, and how we would decorate them....OK here's mine........

ARE YOU KIDDING ME????????WHAT THE HECK IS THIS????????? A FLIPPING CLAM SHELL????????



DOES THIS LOOK LIKE A BOMB SHELTER???NO????????!!!!!! SO I thought before I jumped to any conclusions I would further investigate.......


Wait a minute..what does his look like....


ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? IT HAS HIS NAME ON IT!DO YOU SEE MY NAME ON THIS CLAM SHELL????


I looked everywhere but couldn't find my name



Then I made him go look at this supposed bed/clam shell....





Here is your answer....HE WAS STYMIED....DUMBFOUNDED.....




I WOULD RATHER SLEEP LIKE THIS...........





HOPE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE IN YOUR "ARCHIE" BED THERE BUDDIE......




Really why would they even try to invent a bed bomb shelter......


There is NOTHING that could compare to this.........
I have not even put one paw into that thing yet..... Better luck next time PL2

The PBandJ sandwich

So remember a short while back when my brother took one of PL1's peanut butter and jelly sandwiches( not that I am counting but this has happened about three times) Well Lacie adn Scruffy and Stanley sent him something they found that reminded them of Achie...but first...

LADIES AND GENTLEMAN....THIS IS JUST A RE ENACTMENT


I REPEAT...JUST A RE ENACTMENT.....








THIS IS NOT A REENACTMENT..I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A REENACTMENT IT IS REAL EVIDENCE...IT WAS TAKEN FROM HIS BED......



Well look what Archie got from Lacie and Scruffy and Stanley.......It is a tile....

Our weekend( the shortened version)

Well it started out a little wet and gloomy and ended up quite lovely...Here is a shortened version of what went on in house of A+A..........

You will have to watch very closely to see us in this presentation of zoomies in light speed........


video

Doing the usual hanging out by the window...






Starting walk #1 on Saturday.....(we were waiting for a cookie..)


Are you kidding me?


I ah....like to go up the stairs to peoples houses......












In the spring when all the birds come back after winter Archie likes to hear all the birds in the trees and when they all go in one tree he calls it a chickadee tree(because it is mostly the chickadees and sparrows that do that)...Listen..A FALL CHICKADEE TREE!!!!!
video

It was REALLY windy...watch Archie's ears....

Walk #2 Sunday.......


You got it..waiting for a cookie......




Checking out the scene.....

I am astutely watching this......



While he?? yep waiting for a cookie...




WHAT WAS THAT???????


PL2 has this stupid notion that when we need to be distracted( which she seems to think is every 5 seconds) she does this so we eagerly anticipate a cookie or wicked good treat..In reality we look at her because we are mortified that she sounds like such a nutcase we don't want to see anyone....

video
Eating breakfast and dinner (twice for both Sat and Sun)



And then of course a fabulous nap....( or two or three...)



We were EXTREMELY busy this weekend..Hope everyone had a nice weekend!!!!

More Beds

Well we have of course been very sad, and have been thinking a lot about our pal Snickers and her brother and the rest of their family. PL2 said that she thinks this is a really special group of people at DWB and she wanted us to tell all of you that we all love you very much and are glad you are our friends.



So we really didn't feel like playing a whole lot, and it has been yucky out and we were trying to think of what we could do that would cheer us up.....



And then this came in the mail.........OMG look at the cover!!!! It is a WFT!!!!! (I wonder if they pay a lot to model? I will have to talk to Lacie)


And PL2 and my eyes lit up and we said "that's it!! We will go shopping!!" Then I noticed something...


Oh my gosh PL2 LOOK AT THIS! THIS is where Archie sleeps at night...next to PL1's side of the bed..It has been cold and PL2 gave us blankets...BUT LOOK AT HIS!! IT IS FILTHY




This is mine...It is on PL'2 side.. and I have a crate to one side of it...It is a litle smushed and it does look like I was... ahh thrashing around a little....Actually it looks a little under the weather as well....PL2 and I will have to do a washing today I think...



But then Pl2 started to look through the magazine and said "AGGIE!!!!! Oh did I find something for you!!!!!! "


LOOK AT THIS BED!!! IT IS LIKE YOUR OWN PERSONAL BOMBSHELTER BUT NOT UNDER THE BED!!!!!!! I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT!!!!


So of course we HAD to order it....... and then she said "but what about your brother(who cares I was thinking)Oh I said you mean him???



SO we got him a bed too..He is not as into your own personal bombshelter like I am but he likes the coach style...so PL2 got him this one..AND SHE PUT HIS NAME ON IT!!!!!! (what nudnick??)




SO now we have to wait for it to come..I mean I know you think we have 14,000 beds( well really 13,500 as some have gone the way of wear and tear) but really I have never seen anything like this one.........


SO now we wait,,and bark even harder when the door bell rings( if that is really possible..I mean to bark harder)




If you are wondering what I am looking at in this picture?





Oh yeah..remember him?? He is really into reading...
