"ARCHIE" goes to SWITZERLAND

Let me intoduce you to "Archie", most beloved family member of my niece Ruth & her husband Bill. Bill recently accepted a position in Switzerland.......& here is where "Archie's" adventure begins -


JULY, 2013

Here I am at home in my garden, minding my own business & making sure no-one has taken off with Mum's precious tulips, well there is one bloom....

& then


Mum started packing....looked like someone named Grace had bought all our stuff.....my things were disappearing before my very eyes....

July 30th, 2013




Whew....managed to hang on to my favourite toy "cow"




& there goes GRACE with all our stuff, well what all these strangers didn't nick off with from the garage sale last Saturday.....hmmmmmmm

August 24th, 2013




After what seemed like forever I arrived on the other side of the world but that was OK as Dad was waiting for me I am chewing on his socks til Mum gets here.......




On second thought, it's been a long trip, I am a tad jet lagged so I have opted for a nap on the bed......amazing what you can get away with when you are handsome, loving, obedient & SMART......hee hee hee



When I wake up maybe I will do some exploring, check out the new digs & explore the neighbourhood
with Dad, he needs the excerise....




Here is my new home......



 

Mum has arrived but we won't go into her ongoing affair with IKEA....looks as though she needs to attend a DIY course....





Hopefully it will come together....just as well she is 'patient'

This is my Mum....you can call her Ruth, some folk even call her Mrs Miller (funny about that....)

SMILES ALL AROUND
Life is good.







This is Baden where we live now.
I have to make a plans to investigate....looks promising.

September 19th, 2013





YIPPEE my favourite Aunty M-A has dropped in from home (Australia).....I sure hope they put her in a comfy crate to fly over.....!

She would have been very cramped in mine!






M-A & I have started exploring & we found a couple of minature ponies in the neighbourhood....maybe we could be friends, one has the same colour coat as me....

Way to go Mum.....you can do it.....

Took Mum & M-A for a walk....

September 28th, 2013









We took Aunty M-A to the cafe I didn't like the look of the frothy stuff they ordered so I opted to be 'on guard'....

September 29th, 2013







We took the 'Rack Railway' up to Mount Rigi...I hung my head out the window & smelt the alps, it was wondersful.

The countryside is AWESOME...& my Aunty M-A is doing a mighty fine job with the photographs :o)

October 4th, 2013



Mum playing the lolly game......just can't grasp what she see's in it......some dweep saying SWEEEET every so often.....maybe I'll give it a go sometime...when I can get my paws on her I-Pad....




Here we are on the train from Baden to Bern, my Aunty goes home tomorrow & we will miss her terribly.....I do like train rides.....beats walking.....




Somtimes when we walk a really long way I have to give Mum the hint & sit at the bus stop :o)



Scenery is pretty cool.......





Aunty M-A & me in downtown Bern....

October 5th, 2013





Aunty M-A has gone home to Australia
so I am consoling myself with a yogurt

SWISS of course

Doesn't every Mum take their dog shopping.....




Just ckecking my Aunty M-A didn't sneak back in while I was busy chasing the pesky cats out of my backyard

October 25th, 2013




Getting chilly outside now so I have taken to sitting at the windows.....





(Left)  Waiting for my Dad to come home from work & doing a "Mrs Bucket" on the neighbours hee hee hee




(Right)  Keeping a constant vigil on the PESKY CATS

Favourite pics.....






My Mum & Aunty M-A.......nice






Mum & me at the front door....she did tell me the significance of hanging the stick with white bobbles but for the life of me, I can't recall......

Hmmmmmm but they sure make a great LURE for the PESKY cat I am trying to catch :o)

Aunty M-A's new dog.....

AND the WINNER is..........ME fo course :o)




Aunty M-A sure must be missing me cause she is getting a dog......a border collie...."Fanta"

I hear she is pretty smart, almost as smart as me....

I wonder if she hates cats too?
