An A+A Friday

So it is the day after Thanksgiving and we are EXHAUSTED.. really it takes it out of you eating like that.. PL2 had to work but everyone at work brought a dish in so they had a good spread and PL1 went over to the rest of the family... That left Archie and me at home... Now PL1 left the TV on so we could watch the Patriots  football game, and he left on the radio , so we could listen to the football game.... and Archie? Well you know he loves his cooking shows and he thought it would be a perfect time to try out new recipes.. on me.. before he tries them out on any one else.. and really it was pretty good. His top dish( well in my mind anyway) was his Surprise Stuffie dessert. This looked like a stuffie(  you could almost hear it squeaking) but inside it was a baked Alaska.. Really he out did himself.. So after all that cooking and eating and football we decided to spend a quiet day today... So this is what we did....


I started out by taking a little nap on the window sill and checking on the work men outside( they did a great job)










I really had to pay attention to the workers so Archie decided he would help PL2 make the bed...

And we ended the day by trying out some line dancing....(don't look on the top of my crate, it is miles and miles of papers I put together for Berties next class..)

HE IS IN A HEAP OF TROUBLE

 HOOO BOY........... Now many of you know that we can be  a bit naughty.... but one of us is naughtier than the other.. and his name begins with an A and the next letters are RCHIE....Remember how he ate PL2's knitting project? and the bag of brown sugar?all over the kitchen?) and the GUM? and the bag of recycling which he spread all over the kitchen? really I could go ON AND ON... well this time he went over board....AND CROSSED THE LINE.....Sit back and I will give you an reenactment of what occurred at house of A+A

It was a lovely New England fall day( I am doing a reenactment so I thought I would just put on one or two trees..)




It was 6 am and PL1 was taking us out( listen it is supposed to be dark here... REALLY dark so use your imagination...After we did our business Pl1 went and put it in the "honey pot"(that is what we call it..hee hee)The honey pot is in our little garage at the back of the building....


Hee hee I am trying to really make it life like...Now notice how he has the TWO leashes...... this is important to the reenactment...
He walked down the driveway to the front door.....
I always go to the top of the inside stairs and then Archie goes(he kind of has to wind himself up to do the stairs )

This is where he winds himself up

The he puts his feet on the top steps(this is a trick he learned in puppy kindergarten and he still feels inclined to do this.. listen it's Archie...) and they carry him up the steps because he can't do a lot of steps cuz of his back....... only something was very very different.. When I got to the to of the vestibule steps Pl turned around and NO ARCHIE.... Now sometimes he is a little slow and he is outside the front door which is what PL1 thought... so he opened the front door.... AND NO ARCHIE.....ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? Now PL1 is flipping out and goes flying out the front door and goes down the drive way to the honey pot...NO ARCHIE............PL1 realized the leash must have dropped....
This is the alley behind our building........... Below is a real life video REENACMENT of what we think happened(while you are watching visually remove Pl1 from the movie...)HE RAN DOWN THE BACK ALLEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BY HIMSELF......WITHOUT US..... IN THE DARK......TO THE BIG STREET WHERE THERE ARE CARS AND THEN THE BIGGER STREET WHERE THERE IS THE TROLLEY..PL1 WAS HYPERVENTILATING

..Now Pl1 and I were running EVERYWHERE and PL1 was shouting AGATHA FIND ARCHIE WHERE IS HE????? I WAS TRYING BUT I DIN'T KNOW..so I said PL GET THE CAR GET THE CAR,, So we ran up the stairs and got the keys and ran down the stairs and started to drive around....I was shouting out the window WHERE ARE YOU ????? and I told Pl to go where we usually walk in the morning.. so we went down this street.....
And we thought we saw something white.. AND THERE HE WAS!! HIS LEASH WAS UNDER THIS ROCK and he was sitting  with his ears back and I think he might have cried a little because he said he was really scared AND HE CAN NOT DO ANYTHING WITHOUT THE THREE OF US THERE......(how did his leash get under that rock??)NOW PL2 was not home because she was on the trolley on her way to work ... and she did not know about this until we picked her up at work and when we got to the part where he was sitting with his ears back SHE BURST INTO TEARS and Pl1 said HOW DO YOU THINK I FELT?? So below is NOT a reenactment but what really happened when I told him THAT HE MUST NEVER EVER DO THAT AGAIN EVER.....
