Archie and Goodbye Old House

Hiya all,

As you know, life has been crazy for us because we sold our house a few months ago and put all our stuffs into storage while our new house is being built. We are living with my uncie and Scarlet and Zoe while we are "homeless".

My mum was contacted by Schnauzer Rescue (while we were packing and preparing to move out) and was asked to temp foster a male mini schnauzer.  To cut a long story short, we did.

Enter Archie.

Archie and I were friends straight away. Archie ended up in the RSPCA shelter after his people divorced and he was a victim of that fall-out. Don't get mum started. Then he was adopted by an elderly couple - who loved him but could not look after him properly. He put on LOTS of weight while with them and developed some health problems too. So Archie found himself back with the RSPCA again. Lucky for Arch the Schnauzer Rescue people were contacted and then they called ma. 

Ma helped Archie get all better again.

Archie and I learned how to schnauzer synchronise our sleeps (while mum was packing up the kitchen)

And even though there was not much left in our old house - mum always made sure we had enough doggie beds to use. Here is Lily (Auntie Lynny's dog) who we were looking after while Auntie Lynny was in the Youuu-Kayy on holidays.

We all went on daily walks together.

And on Junk Food Friday ... we would all have a little taste of peep unhealthy foodables. "No Pressure Dad dad!!"

And in the meanwhile a big truck came and made this happen in every room - the dining room went from this...

To this!!

My bedroom got emptied (remember how the silly birdies would knock at this window and I'd go "off my nut" at them?!) ... ahhhh just memories now!

The office cleaned out.

And I was explaining to Archie how I had many hours of playing Goalie at these two steps, and hours of running up and down the hallway chasin' my balls. This photo captures my last moments ever in my old house. The house I came to as a wee pup of 8 weeks old. Sad huh? 

Then we left our house forever and moved in with Auntie Lynny (and Lily) when she got home. 

Archie and I had lots of funs playing with the squeaky toys ... and Archie was a bit naughty with chewing them a bit too hard at times.

But the great news is - Archie was then adopted by Auntie Lynny and Lily. Auntie Lynny had seen two of her little rescue doggies go to the bridge earlier this year - so she was really sad about that - but she was ready to look for another fur-baby .... and it was just meant to be that she and Archie crossed paths through my ma.

It meant I had to give up my temp brother though :-(

But it's all good because we see Archie all the time. We will probably even see Archie and Lily for "doggie daycare" when our new house is built. 

So it was a great outcome for all - Archie has landed on his paws - and he will never need to look for a forever home again. He has one. 

And he has a good schnauzer friend in ME!
