Archie has made himself well and truly at home his favourite place was the rug. We had 2 matching rugs either end of the living room but we had to take them up as he was pulling little tufts of the fibres out and I don’t want him to swallow them plus I don’t want bald rugs . When he is through his chewing phase we will put them back . We have a flat rug in the garage that needs cleaning so we will do that this weekend.  

Archie goes outside to wee and he is eating fine and we haven’t had any problem with his sleeping.  He goes up to bed with me at around ten and wakes between five thirty and six which is fantastic, I on the other end get around five or six hours and I am struggling with sleep. 

When I pick him up and put him on my lap he likes to climb up and lies on my chest and go to sleep and has stared following me everywhere and he is so tiny I have to be so careful. He is fast , he has a mad five minutes during the day when he just runs round like a crazy dog and he is so quick .

Here are a few pics of him with his collar and harness that I try on him for a short time evert day to get him used to them he also has his teeth brushed every day which he seems to like . 

Here are a few pics of Archie

He is a joy. He can start socialising with other dogs from tomorrow and we are meeting my Sister in Laws little Yorkshire terrier Henry. It is John’s Birthday tomorrow but he has to work so we are going out Sunday weather permitting to sit outside in the pub garden for a meal with Archie to see how he gets on. He is so confident now and has explored the house and the patio area . He is so funny, he drags his little toy donkey around and it’s bigger than him.  We are totally in live with this little man. He was eleven weeks yesterday.  I will let you know how he gets on over the weekend.  The Grandchildren adore him and he enjoyed the fuss. 

Have a good week .

Sunday in this house usually starts around 7am if I am Lucky as I have very bad insomnia and am sometimes wide awake between 4 and 6am. I had a restless night and woke at 5am but stayed in bed and dropped back off and woke up at 8am which is unheard of.  I have my coffee and get on with breakfast and lunch prep.  I put the washer on and sit and have breakfast and have another coffee before getting on with the day. Today it was raining but still warm. We have had some very warm weather , well warm for here anyway. I have to run to the local shopping centre to pick up some bits and pieces and then come home and have lunch and sit and watch TV while John cleans the kitchen,he never cooks so I cook and he cleans up that’s how it has been for well forever . We then go and visit my parents who don’t live far away and come back home it go and see one of our Son’s or they come here.  We only have a light meal in the evening or my favourite is what I call a picky tea. Cheese board,Dips and veg sticks, Olives but they are just for me as John can’t stand them . I then usually get the ironing done whilst watching some trashy tv on catch up.  Then when Alfie was here we woukd go for a walk with the dog and when Archie is here we will do the same .

Then we settle down and watch a drama (used to be with a glass of wine but I don’t drink alcohol anymore ) . This is our Sunday at home . If we go out for the day it all changes obviously.  We plan to go and find some new dog walks and we have found some nice dog friendly pubs and I love going somewhere nice for a picnic weather permitting.  What’s your Sunday like ? 

We pick Archie up in 12 days I can’t wait.

He loved his belly tickled on out last visit.  He has had his microchip and will be fully vaccinated,wormed and flea treated.  He will be ten weeks when we get him home .
