Meet Archie

Inspired by a real Spaniel puppy named Archie that Mabel and I met at the park recently....



Today we made a new friend at the park, Scruffy and I. His name was Archie. A high spirited little chap with seemingly boundless energy, dashing this way and that, leaping and tumbling, doing the most comical rolls down the little hills in an effort to retrieve a ball almost as big as him.
Scruffy wasn't at all sure of such youthful exuberance so early in the morning, and eyed Archie suspiciously for several minutes before deciding that the newcomer was really no threat to his prowess as the Park's ball retrieving champion.
'Don't those get in your way?', asked Scruffy, alluding to Archie's rather magnificent golden ears flapping in the wind, as they chased a particularly muddy ball through the puddles.
'Oh no, long ears give you wings!', barked Archie happily as he bounded over the brook..and for a brief moment he really did look like he was flying....
