Yet another new bed!!!!!!!!!!


 So this has been an icky week for us.... Archie started it all with throwing up and some rea ( this is where the new bed comes in) and then he got better and then he got rea, and then I got rea....Get the picture?? Suffice to say we are both better, PL2 is a lot poorer(well.... he had to go and see his Vet and stuff and they had to do tests and stuff..all of which were fine....) Which brings me to this story....
 He had a little uhhhmmmmmm accident......ON MY FAVORITE BED....
so PL2 felt bad so she went out to get me another(I wanted the one that looks like a sofa with a high back and the cute little cushions? You know the one in the catalog?? But she blew me off.....) So she says she can't get me one and not him( really why not? I didn't  wreck his bed....) so she got each one of us this bed....


Boring isn't it? You might wonder why she got it when there is a crate right next door?? Go ask her....

I sort off like the crate(as long as my favorite blanket is in it and I have a book and a night light and a puzzle book if I am not tired)
Even this is ok( isn;t that colorfull stuff on the floor cute? It is padding so when we jump on and off the bed 12000 times we don't hurt ourselves..and PL2 says it goes so nicley with the decor..

I mean Arch said he was quite comfortable on the pillow that was on the floor..


In a pinch if I HAVE to sit next to HIM this will do... 


I like to lounge up here

Sometimes I let him join me.....













But not all the time as you can see what might happen
And the floor is ok too...but she feels like we needed a new one so what can we do???

WE ARE GOING TO HARVARD AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



YOU CAN NOT BELIEVE IT!!! PL1 got a telgram  email asking us to come back to Harvard!! This is what it said:

"Greetings!

As a graduate of the Harvard Canine Cognition Lab, 
your dog  Agatha is eligible to return to participate in our new series of studies because we know that she only did so poorly the last time because the test was really a beginner one and she is so far advanced that she thought why bother to do that,.  We hope you'll consider returning to Harvard so we can see your dog 
that unbelievably brilliant wire fox terrier again! 

We've set up an online poll you can use to choose an appointment time that's convenient for you.  Please sign up using the following link:
 Once you've chosen a day and time to come visit us, we'll send you a confirmation email with details and directions.

If you have any questions or would prefer to 
schedule an appointment offline, please feel free to email us at this address or call us .  Thank you very much for your past participation, and we hope to see you again soon! Oh yeah if you want to you can bring your brother along so he won't cry or anything. And remember we think that he was so good on his exam because of course he has you to prep him.


Best,
Gordon Kraft-Todd

TA DA HERE WE ARE!!!

So we got our space and here we are. All we have to figure out is the new system to post and we are all set..so some of our pics and movies are a little out of place but we think you will get the idea... This happened about four thousand years ago(well it seems like that....) and it is a lovely fall day in our Arboretum....


The movie that you are about to see is what to do in the car when it is a beautiful day and all the windows are open so you can smell the air.. and don't worry they were both in the front seat so only  one is filming and the other driving...

I just wanted to make sure that there was nothing in the hole 

The first changing leaves
Wellll it is my job to dig....

I had to really get in there

So pretty

ON IT

Archie said he just doesn't get why I am so obsessed....

HAHAHAHA nooo I didn't do this hole

I made him go into that hole by telling him there were cookies in there

LOOOOOOKKKK A WEDDING!!!! What a perfect place for one!!!!!


ON IT BIG TIME
SO this is a famous bench where we have brought many of our guests when they come to visit

Some dogs like to go on the bench(PL1 is telling Archie about the scene they are looking at)

Others like to go UNDER the bench in search of sticks


My hole

What Archie and PL1 were looking at..Now in this next film you will see me digging this hole... It is a very difficult task and requires strict concentration. LOOK WHAT HE IS DOING WHILE I AM DIGGING THIS HOLE ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
video
We saw this path ....

And Archie said he wanted to go down it because we might find Chinese food( it always all about food with him)

We thought we smelled some chicken with cashews but .......

Per usual we are both going the opposite way

No words... geesh

I found this car and thought it would be nice for Archie

But he said without a roof he would get cold and it would take him a long time to get it to Scruffys house


The path home
SO here we are again and as we say in Boston We wicked missed all of you and are glad we are back......
