Just a typical afternoon with my brother

Well it started out as a typical day......We woke up, quickly played bitey face, went out, came in , quickly played bitey face, ate, slept, quickly played bitey face, went out, and then went to the Chiropractor( Archie for his usual session and I for a little tune up.....)

So I went first and of course was a perfect angel, and then my brother went up in the table. Then as we getting to leave the door opened and a rather large bull dog came sauntering in... This of course was a perfect opportunity for us to give him a rather boisterous terrier welcome,which not all people appreciate.The rather large bull dog was escorted out and then we followed....but then a very cute white fluffy dog came in the front door. Now I don't know if everyone knows this but Archie has sort of a thing for white fluffy dogs...loves them... think they are like super models....So I had already gone out the front door with PL1 and Arch was with PL2 , who was chatting with the Chiropractor( really PL2 is a chatter) and she is walking out the door.. the little white fluffy dog has gone to the left, and we hear a rather large sound..... of Archie..... who wasn't watching where he was going( a frequent occurrence) and he walked right into the door.........

Just ARch




PL1 and I had no idea what had happened as we were ahead, PL2 is really really laughing, sort of out of control like, and then I SNAPPED into gear........I don't think PL2 realized the severity of the situation.........of what COULD happen.....

Would I have to call an ambulance??????(Pl2 is REALLY laughing now......)
Should I run and get my uniform????
As you can tell in this picture this was after a grueling shift and I was EXHAUSTED........

But then we all noticed that Archie was OK....... The chiropractor did a little something(in the parking lot) to him just in case.......















HOWEVER..... PL1+2 went out last night and came back home and PL1 said to PL2 hmmmmm look what I found in ARCHIES bed.......... the outside wrapper package of this....
PL2 almost fainted on the spot because she has read LOTS of stuff about dogs getting very very very ill from eating gum as it has sorbital which is really really horrible for dogs.........










SO she called this number( well a local number...she was waiting for them to say Oh Hi owner of Archie who has eaten in his short life a bag of brown sugar, two boxes of fig newtons, gnawed at a fake fire log, eaten countless peanut butter sandwiches with the paper towel on it, and who knows what else.....And it is not as if PL1 and 2 are careless.. they are FANATICS.it is just that he is that good at it...)


And PL2 says to the people at the center well I can only see one wrapper....so I think he only ate one piece......BUT NOOOOOOOOO say the people..HE COULD HAVE EATEN THE PAPER AND ALL all 14 pieces.... Now she is really going to faint.... BUT this happened to be a type of gum that was really low in sorbital so it was alright........Pl2 was sweating there for awhile......


A friend who works with PL2 and hears all of these stories about us sent her this picture...........She had been driving and saw this and screeched the car to get a shot..She said she thought of us.. As Tanner would say WTF???? We don't really get it.....


All in a days work.........

So. I wanna know. Did he get the little white fluffy dog's attention? I certainly hope so.

And, Arch, there are much better ways to freshen your breath. Trust me.

Rest today. It sound like you might need to. Or maybe not, if this is a typical afternoon.

Learning from ya, Coach.

That brother of yours will cause you and your PLs to have a nervous breakdown! He is always into something.

Get some rest while you can.
Your friend,
Niamh

OKAY. If we are ordering those signs in bulk, muzzer says she wants one for the yard, and one to carry on a stick when we go for walkies.

I think Teka should have to carry the sign.

There's just so many thing to comment on on this post I dunno where to start. UM WELL, YES I DO...Archie has a "thing" for "fluffy white dogs"??? What about adorable black and tan little grizzle dogs...(Lacie bares her teeth in something faintly resembling a grin, but looking more like a decomposing pumpkin...) Yep...ya just dug ur foxy self into a hole there Archie boy...

Secondly, Scruffy has almost knocked himself unconscious walking backwards into stopsigns...they make this really cool "klang" when he hits it with his pinhead...

Thirdly...have ya ever heard of Big League Chew? For kids? It's bubble gum...our old Sarge ate an entire pound bag one day when we weren't home one day...climbed on Bruvver's bed and up onto his desk...it was blue. Yep...Old Sarge had pretty blue poops for a good couple of days...course I wasn't around yet...just heard about it...Mumsie never even called poison control bout that one...she was on a first name basis with them.

Sheeesch...I adored you in ur nursing uniform, Aggie...looks like it was a very long shift...ya looked exhausted...

Kisses dear dogs...well, at least Aggie as Archie has no use for black and tan dogs...sniff...

Wow - that was a busy day - but giving the humans a heart workout is good for them - keeps 'em young. Did you get the attention of the Fluffy dog or did you just get a sore head?

I think there are better ways to freshen your breath - no fluffy dog is worth poisoning yourself for, surely?

Lots of licks
Sally and Paddy

Maggie and Mitch said...

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Mango said...

Ha! My momma looks just like that whenever anything remotely scary happens to us.

As for the walking into the wall? My Grandpa Angus did it all the time. I think that is why terriers have hard heads.

Slobbers,
