Friday Funnies ~ Archie has the Munchies!

Happy Friday everyone!

It is me...


The holiday weekend is here!

I am told it is time for The New Year to arrive!

How exciting!

Dad says we are going to celebrate it by eating lots of food and watching football.

My two favorite things since I get snacks and lots of attention since my momma does not really watch the games, but finds it very relaxing to listen to them in the background while she plays with me and crochets Sweater Vests. :)

Lucky for me, football and foodables go together which is great news because ever since I got my first batch of Pugs in The Kitchen cookies and inhaled them because they were so GOOD, I have had the munchies!

I want everything to taste that goooooood!

So I am taste testing everything!

Does Dad taste as good as my Cheese Pizza cookies?


Does momma taste as good as my Pumpkin Kisses cookies?


Does my fuzzy chicken taste like my Honey Rosemary Chicken cookies?

Pleh... Noooooo, Nada, Negatory, Nope!

Ok, momma please help me open my last bags of Apple Chedder and Bacon Cookies to ring in The New Year and then pleeeeease place another order for me!

Yay! This is going to be a fabulous year!

What are you doing to ring in 2012?

Please leave us a note and let us know!

We cannot wait to hear all about it!

Bogart comes to visit!

Hi everyone!

It is me... Archie Barchie.

This is my friend Bogart!

He came to stay with us last week.

I am glad to report that even though I am new at being a gracious host, as you read about yesterday , he had no trouble making himself right at home!

I never wanted him to feel lonely while his momma was away so I talked to him constantly!

... and tried to play with him 24/7!

Doesn't he look thrilled? :)

He was a good sport until...

I tried to hide my Pugs in the Kitchen cookies from him.

Please tune in here to read all about that fiasco.

Well... I got an earful for that rude faux paw!

In fact, we both got a talkin' to about sharing from my momma.

Now we have done it!

Here we are on a time out!

Don't worry about us though, my momma is a softie!

We only had to wait 5 minutes and we can each could have another cookie!

Pugs in The Kitchen Cookies ~ Yummy!!!

Hi everyone!

It is me...


I am so excited to tell you about the special package that just came in the mail for me and my house guest, Bogart!

My mom heard that Bogart was coming to stay with us for the holidays and ordered us some special treats from our friends at Pugs In The Kitchen!

They are a fabulous Doggy Bakery in Indiana that now ships around the country!

All of their cookies are handmade with love and care to order!

They are fresh, wholesome and deeeelicious!

They are packaged with the utmost care and all 5 flavors arrived in perfect condtion!


* Archie whispers in my ear *

Momma, do I really have to share them with Bogart?

I know it is polite to share with guests, but all the cookies are sooo deeelicious!

"Archie! That is not nice! Now be a good puggy please go call Bogie Wogie in from the backyard while I open your treats. ;) "


I know... maybe if I eat them quietly he will not hear me crunching!

I must be quick!

I hear him snuffling at the doggie door!


He heard me making yummy noises eating my cookies from Pugs In the Kitchen all the way from the backyard!

Now I have to share!

I will introduce you to Bogart tomorrow.

Right now I have to count out all the cookies to make sure I get MORE than him!

They are wonderful!

Please visit Pugs In the Kitchen today to get your very own cookies that if you want to... you can share with me! ;)

Hi everyone!

Happy Friday!

It is me...

Archie Barchie!

Phew! What a FUN time I had with my momma filling order for everyone to enjoy!

All of the bows are tied, cookies baked and packages sent. :)

Now I can wait for Santa to arrive!

I think I will wait here on my favorite chair for him!

I will snuggle in with my blankie and keep my eyes WIDE open so that I will not fall asleep.

Well, maybe I will rest my eyes just a little bit so they look all refreshed and bright for him.

Zzzzzzzz Zzzzzz

Archie and I are wishing you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and a wonderful weekend for everyone!

How perfect is that?

They even have cute little pug tails!

Please visit her shop if you would like one too.
