Dear Momma's Students,
I am sooooooo looking forward to seeing you again (and meeting some of you for the first time!) at the Middle School Social coming up on Friday, October 24th! Please plan on coming so I can put faces to names! Momma talks about you all the time, and I can't picture who she is talking about unless I get to meet ya!
I'll be the cute one in the pink stroller!
Dear "Momma-Stealers", er, Students,
I just wanted to post that I don't have any hard feelings about Momma going back to school and spending all day with you guys instead of me, her favorite. I really don't! I'm happy for her (not) that she is no longer going to be taking me swimming with her in the pool, or on bike rides. I didn't really like doing those things anyway (yes I did). I'm also not upset (really) that I will now need to eat my food like a regular dog instead of on her lap with her hand-feeding me. That was getting old (no it wasn't).
Okay, seriously, WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL! I just want you to know (and I'm being serious here) that I look forward to hearing all about your day through Momma. Yep, she comes home after school and tells me all about what you did in class, while we watch Little House on the Prairie together. I know that you will have a successful year and that you will work hard!
I hope that Momma can bring me to see you at some point during the school year! I loved being part of the Middle School social events last year! I think Momma is lucky to have such a great bunch of students (even if it means she is not home to wait on me all day). Take care of her, and check here often for more of my silly antics!
Have a great year, y'all!
Hi guys! I am so upset! First, my momma leaves to go on her vacation. Which is okay because I know she will come back and I still have Daddy and my dog-brothers.
Then Daddy, took Jake and Doogan (my dog brothers) to the dog hotel! When Daddy came home without them, I was devastated! I sat on the front porch and cried :(. Luckily, my momma will be home soon! She left her computer at home, so I was able to sneak on. I hear she is having lots of fun on the beach! Well that's all for now I am going to go take a pup-nap and make myself a pupachino!
Today, Momma took me to PetsMart! She needed to buy a new poop picker-upper. Anyhoo, while we were there, I ran into a large pit bull. That thing went bonkers on me ... barking and carrying on ... finally, I couldn't take it and I snapped! I turned around and let him have it! No fear!
Momma made me be quiet and mind my manners. I could've taken him ...
Hi guys! I'm so excited that you had to take ISATs! Not because you had to take a test, but because Momma left her computer at home and now I can chat! <giggle>
I have been getting into all sorts of trouble lately. I can't help myself! I really like dragging dirty laundry out of the hamper and all over the house! Who doesn't?! Also, I am bound and determined to be the first dog in this house to triumph over that other creature in this house ... the cat. Zoe (that's her name) is no match for me! I will show her who is boss! The two other dogs might be afraid of her (big babies) but she is my size ... I can take her! And I try to whenever I see her! So what that she hisses and howls at me, and scratches me with her claws and tries to eat me. I'm a tough guy! Momma says I'll never learn. She is so wrong!
Here are some of my latest pho-to-s!
Momma's coming! I gotta go! But never fear ... I see a nap in her future ... I'll be back!
Hi! It's me, Archie! Momma finally went to sleep, and she left her computer on again ...
So, I had a BLAST at the Middle School Social last Friday! I can't believe Momma brought me! I met so many nice students! My momma is always saying how lucky she is that she gets to work with such wonderful students ... now I know what she is talking about! I hope I can go back to her school again soon!
I don't know about you, but I've had enough of this cold weather. I went to go outside this morning, and well, I didn't realize that nobody had shoveled, and I jumped off the porch steps right into a drift of snow! I sunk all the way down into the snow and was nearly covered. I was scared. I just froze in my step and didn't move. Of course, it is all Momma's fault so I turned and GLARED at her!
Uh oh ... Momma's coming back! I will get back on here later when I can!
Hi! My name is Archie! I am a Morkie, which is a mix between a Maltese and a Yorkshire Terrier. I live with Mrs. Claeson, although I like to call her "Momma." If Momma ever figures out how to transfer pictures from her phone, she will show me how to upload a picture of myself. I am really handsome!
Ok, so I went and got Momma's phone and figured out how to do it myself. This is the most recent picture of me. Aren't I adorable? Momma was working (again) and I was trying to get her attention (again).
While I was going through Momma's photos, I found some other adorable photos of me:
This was me when I was a little baby. I like to stretch out when I sleep.
I was just hanging around on this particular day. Don't tell Momma, but I pulled down one of her pillows off the couch and made myself a bed. I don't know why, but Momma gets mad when I do that! Sheesh ...
Uh oh. Momma was really mad at me on this day. She accused me of eating Ashley's sidewalk chalk! Can you imagine? Yelling at someone as cute as me? I don't know why she thinks "I" was the one who did it ...
Momma can be so mean to me. Look what she did to me here. A BATH! Have you ever heard of a dog getting a bath? Ridiculous! My dog ancestors are rolling over in their graves at this travesty, this crime against canines. You know who needs the bath? My brother Doogan - see him inside the door behind me? My brother is so mean to me and barks at me ... he needs his mouth washed out with soap!
I wanted to share this one with you because, well, I think I look really cute here.
LOOK! It's me and my big brother, Jake! He is my bested buddy in the whole wide world! We do EVERYTHING together. He even let me lay next to him on his bed. I love my big brother!
This is of me after I got my first professional grooming. Don't I look sharp? I look better than when Momma cuts my hair. I was visiting my cousins, Gus and Woody, in Georgia. I loved being at their house! They have this HUGE yard and lots of mulch that we rolled around in. Momma's sister, my Aunt Lynnie, was as obsessed with this "bath" business as Momma is. They are nuts!
Peek-a-boo! This was in the car on the way to Aunt Lynnie's house. I got real tired of sitting in this car seat. I begged and begged Momma to let me out of it, but no, she just patted my head and kept on driving.
Aw, look at me! I graduated from Puppy School! I wasn't top of my class, but I should have been. I was the best dog there!
So, I just wanted to introduce myself and share some pictures of me. Momma says I'm cute and that I know it. Duh! I'm A-DOR-A-BLE!
I hope that now that it is Christmas break that Momma will have some more time to play with me. If she leaves her computer open enough, I'll jump on and tell you some more about me.
I am Mrs. Claeson's "Morkie" puppy, Archie. "Momma" doesn't know that I've created a blog on her page so that I can share stories of what goes on at home. :) I hope you enjoy reading about my silly antics!
