Welcome Home Archie!

Good Morning Everyone!

Archie is home!

We had a magical day yesterday bringing him home.

The drive was 13 hours total (6.5 hours each way) to our wonderful breeders, Kim & Kriss at Tug at YurHart , but it felt like we were riding on a cloud.

The photo above of baby Archie was the very first I took!

He is 8 weeks old and weighs about 4.5 lbs. :)

The most amazing thing happened when we first met.

He ran thru his doggy door, sat at my feet, threw back his head and sang just like Emmitt.

I know that was emmitt giving me a huge happy hug and kiss!

I did not realize we got a video of it until this morning...

Archie singing his first song!

Our first hello!

I held him the whole way home on my lap...

While he slept and slept and slept!

Welcome home sweet Archie!

Hi everyone!

It is me!


I cannot wait to play with all of you!

Please leave me a note and say hello!

I am really good at making new friends!

Hellooooo Archie!

We're so happy and honored to meet you. You're just a bundle of pug goodness. Mommy even says you are "delicious" - don't worry, we don't think it means she will try to eat you all up! But if she saw you in person she might give you lots of kisses - like we would!

Melissa, this just brings tears to my eyes! It's like the circle of life and Emmitt is with all of us by passing on his unforgettable roo roo roos to Archie. I'm so happy for all of you.

I remember when we drove from CA to UT to pick up Stella. It was an all day drive but it felt like minutes because we had our Stella. :)

Welcome, welcome, welcome to Arhie from Quincy, Elliot, Ruby and Forrest. His sweet baby song was surely sent by Emmitt. Thank you for sharing your joy with all of us in pictures and videos.
