A Canadian Visitor and the Witness Protection Program

So last week we had a very very important visitor .........the one and only MS SOPHIE LA BRADOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well you can just imagine Archie Toffee and Riley and I preparing for this visit!! We all decided that we absolutely had to go to.....THE ARBORETUM!!!!!!!! So we went to pick her up( oh and her PL of course) Now just a quick "of note" Of course we all know that
is Sophie's one and only true love and Archie didn't want Joey to get jealous or anything so Archie told Joey that he would act as Sophie's personal body guard to make sure that NOTHING would happen to her....

Here we are at her hotel(her name was at the front door and it was on the front page of the Boston Globe and stuff)...Archie is telling her(secretly of course) that he will be her undercover body guard while she was in town....

Hee Hee here I am saying hello to Toffee and Riley's PL ..You can't even see my tail it is going so fast....

Archie was sticking to her like glue(he has great work ethic)

And off we all went..It was a beautiful day and the best day we have had yet this spring( Archie said he asked for it for her but he is taking this just a little to far don't ya think?)

HERE WE ARE!!!!!! So we were just standing there telling her all about the place.....

This picture of Toffee is for Eric....

Sophie loves this place!! She has been here before but never in such lovely weather!!!!

SO I really figured that maybe I should show her all the good digging spots.... but she is kind of into her ball..I mean REALLY into it....

And look at this action video of Sophie running and CATCHING her ball!!!

Then we decided to go for a little swim....and Sophie took her ball in with her..I tried to tell her maybe she shouldn't but come on she IS Ms La Brador........

SHE LOST HER BALL.....IN THE STREAM.....OMG........ I was trying to see if I could pat it out

Everyone left to continue the walk but I stayed on a bit to search for it... Oh the humiliation to have her lose her ball IN OUR ARBORETUM.......

OK so we kept on walking and went up to the top of this little hill(where you can see for miles and miles.....)We were having a little snack and stuff and just talking.........this is where the action kind of begins..... See Toffee and Riley were showing us their new vaudeville act...First you ask Riley if he is kookoo for Coco puffs and then you ask him for his paw....... Now Riley takes this very very seriously and REALLY REALLY wanted to impress he was really really concentrating....And Sophie's Pl went a little close for an action shot....Archie and I were still having a little snack.. and we heard a lititle growl...well it was Riley telling Sophie's PL not to get so close when he was performing because he gets a little anxious....

So Sophie went to go back and sit down and then Sophie's Pl saw........BLOOD....YOUARE READING THIS RIGHT....BLOOD on Sophie's back........ Archie jumped up and spun around....... We couldn't find out where it was from.UNTIL WE LOOKED AT THE HER EAR.......RILEY GOT HER ON THE EAR..................ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? FIRST WE LOSE HER BALL AND THEN WE BITE HER EAR??????

WHY IS THERE ALWAYS ONE IN EVERY CROWD?? AND WHY IS IT ALWAYS ONE OF US TERRIERS??????(hee hee what a reputation...) BUT LOOK AT RILEY....HE IS SORT OF LAUGHING.......( actually don't tell Sophie this but it was a stealth bomb terrier performance at a very very high terrier level....spring, attack, no one knows ,not even the victim,and then look surprised....I gotta say it was pretty good but just not for our important visitor)

Now my brother thinking only of himself of course quickly turned to PL...."PL ya gotta help me buddy...I was supposed to be her bodyguard......."

Here is the evidence.....(to tell you the truth we were way more upset than she was...such class.....)
As for Riley??

Archie got him into the witness protection program because we are all afraid that Joey might be a little mad......

And Archie????I think his body guard days are done...

PL2 has a favor..She has been trying to change our header picture and every picture she tries comes out GINORMOUS..which it never has done before.....Any thoughts as to why it is doing this????


Sophie Brador said...

Agatha! Everyone keeps fussing over my ear, but honestly, I still don't know what they are all on about. I am perfectly perfect. But it was really cool to get a tour of your apartment and to have your PL2 help fix me all up in your bathroom. I hope you weren't too upset for too long that I was actually there. If you ever want to come and bleed in my house, I would be really happy to host you and share some polysporin stuff with you.

I had a fabulous time in Boston and still love all you terriers. I love tuffies!


Gus said...

Yeah..Teka treats our guests that way too.



Hi guys,

boy, you two really know how to make friends. Glad you had such a nice day!

Riley and Star.

Lorenza said...

Sure it was pawesome to have Sophie there with you.
Toffee and Riley sure loved being there too!
Kisses and hugs

tula monstah said...

hey A& A!
ok, so Arch maybe stick to coaching. you know Sophie luvs ya.. how could you resist the terrier charms! ugghh it's raining again.

kissies, tula

peeses: not to worry, i'm still a lifelong ruffian...Norwood is the teacher's pet. can you believe it? now we have PEEWEE in graduate class too! things are really going to get interesting..

TwoSpecialWires said...

What a great visit you had. We knew it was happening, but we sort of lost track of time.

Fergi wants to know if you tried to put a diamond stud or a gold ring in Sophie's ear. She has a rip in hers (from her puppy mill days ... not a pretty story) that she wishes she could use as a pierce hole, but Moma won't let her.

It looks like you had a great time with your guests ... we were thinking of asking if we could go to the Arboretum if we ever come to visit. We wouldn't need a body guard. And we'd bring our own ball. And polysporin stuff.

Maybe we'll start packing now. It did look like great fun.

Love ya
Jake and Fergi xxoo

Oskar said...

I bet there was a bug on her ear that he was trying to protect her from!

Sally said...

First off, Paddy wants to know if you guys can come here and help him play with mr Mouse - you are expert diggers indeed! As your Body guard days are over - can we have digging coaching lessons?

It is always the small ones ? There is a little Jack Russell in our park that uses the same tactic - he is the mighty flea.

Hope Sophie's ear is all better - lots of licks
Sally and PAddy

Molly the Airedale said...

We sure did have a great time when Sophie visited us! She's lots of fun!
Mom wants to know if you checked the "shink to fit" box after you uploaded your photo? Beyond that point, mom is useless when it comes to puters!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Dexter said...

That was an awesome action packed day at the Arbor Eat 'em. That Miss Sophie sure is dignified even under assault. You did a great job, Archie, don't fret.


The Black and Tans. said...

We are so jealous you all get to meet up. What a lovely day you all had and Sophie was so brave after her ear injury.

We love seeing all the photos of the Arbotetum.

Molly, Taffy and Monty.

PS. We think Maggie and Mitch might be onto something regarding the blog header photo.

Niamh said...

My goodness! There is always something exciting happening in MA with you terriers. Glad Sophie is fine. I think that Archie should look for a new career.

Unfortunately we cannot help with the header. We have had the same for years.

Your friends,
Niamh & Ambrose

Jake of Florida said...

We don't know what to say -- when it comes to that stealth nip, we both have been guilty -- but each of us on the other at one time or another.

Out comes the gooey sporin stuff -- and sometimes a frantic call to the Dog Tor --

But nipping the beautiful Diva, La Sophie Labrador -- that takes chutzpah!!!

We too are jelly that you all get to meet up. But at least we anticipate a flat self encounter before too long!

Wirey love,

Jake and Just Harry

(We've been following the news about Mikey -- might he be coming here? That would at least let us see him from time to time.)

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

We are sure glad the Sophie is ok.. It does look like you all had a great time.. To bad you lost your ball.. Louie probably could help you find it. He is always finds his..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Eric said...

What's that twinny and Step , Miss Brador came to visit? And you went to your favourite Arbour Eat Em? I confess. All was sort of hazy after I saw that picture for me of my pupcake. Sigh.

She told me later Riley has been yapping non stop of opening a tattoo and piercing parlour.Plans for Sophie as his first ever client to feature big time in his lunch campaign. That'll get the punters running.Smart boy.

Crickey though Twinny and Step Mom is having a hissy fit. Worrying if I'll behave with the flat DWB sweetie heart. Teehee !!!What's the betting?
Wiry love n kisses Eric xxx

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

MMMM...that happened to our bloggie header pic too...ya hafta do that shrink to fit box...makes it smaller...but then if it's your posterior up there Aggie, I'd prefer to have it in the big I didn't mean it that way...I mean your butt is really quite compared to Lacie's any butt is tiny er...

Scruffy slinks to the corner...

Sheesch...Lacie're doin' your bathroom over in LaBrador Red??? That totally rocks!! I could send ya some Foxy red samples if ya need it for contrast.

Mumsie just burned the unobservant...sheesch...Um, better get into that Witness thingy too...Joey is gonna kill ya...


Joe Stains said...

Guys, everyone can relax. This old bite the ear off story may sound familiar to some...a few years ago I was also stealth attacked and had my ear bit off and just showed up to my PLs covered in blood. If this is not proof that Sophie and I are star crossed lovers nothing is. My girl is TOUGH so Riley is off the hook. THIS TIME!!

But really Archie, you might need find a new line of business.

Peppy Sheppys said...

Holy cow that looks like a great vacay! You guys are great tour guides and what kind of a vacation is it if someone doesn't get an unanticipated piercing and loses their balls? Great job narrating!

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh my, what a wonderful time you had with Sophie, well apart from the blooded ear. And the lost ball.........

Poor Sophie! Perhaps it just wasn't her day ;0D

My Jeannie says she can't help you with the blog header query, she actually said "Blogger Has a Mind Of Its Own and Is Very Silly and Childish" some days. But the Shrink To Fit box may help, put a wee tick in the box, and this should make the photo smaller.

Otherwise she has no idea.

I am so glad you had such lovely weather for Sophie's visit! Your walk looked the best fun ever.

lotsalicks, Marv xxxxxxxx

Archie, me lad,

As a distinguished member of the "Bodyguards Pawsociation of America", I have to tell ya, well you kinda stink.

Looks like you had a great time with Miss Sophie, and me thinks that she forgives and forgets rather easily. You know, we're terriers---it happens!

Can I come to Boston next? Actually, me pawrents are planning that for their next trip. What a great place to live!

Irish Love,

Kess And Her Mama said...

We think that Archie should stick to being your trainer and leave bodyguarding to Kevin Costner.

Toffee said...

Oh A & A...I am (sigh), well just SO embarrassed that my brother was such a stick in the mud. Will you still be MY friend? I don't think he should have the luxury of being in witness PAWtection - he should have to fend for himself after the way he treated Ms. Brador!!!

Piercing store? Yeah right buddy. Good luck with that.
