Summer is Great

Hello all our friends! So sorry we haven’t touched base very much. The summer is ticking by at a crazy pace, as usual. We’re having a fun summer and Macklin and Archibald are doing great. Archibald is growing like a weed…well, faster than a weed to be honest. He’s been gaining about 4 pounds a week…insane, huh! He’s already about 50 pounds at 18 weeks old.

Macklin has been busy showing him all our summer haunts. We took the boys to Boston a few weeks ago to have dinner at one of the spots we frequented last summer with Sam (where he used to eat burgers and key lime pie). Well, Macklin promptly pulled to “his” table and stared at the people sitting at “his” table. It was quite funny, although awkward trying to explain to some lovely people that they were sitting where he enjoyed burgers and key lime pie with his brother all last summer – I sounded like a nut!
The boys have had a few boat outings and Archibald has taken to being a dock dog. He’s really great and is fantastic and comfortable around the boat. He’s so smart to – he learned quickly that if he hangs out at the top stair by the galley, everyone coming from there has food! But….he’s not so sure about swimming yet. We’ve only had him at the beach once and he wasn’t digging it. We think it’s because it was rocky and he couldn’t figure out his footing. Macklin still loves the water and will be sure to teach him the ropes.


Archibald had his first hotel stay this past weekend. He was so very good. We had a little “stay-cation” in Boston for a few days at the Liberty Hotel. It’s a really, really neat hotel. It’s an old jail built in the mid 1800s and has been turned into a luxury hotel – the theme of the hotel incorporates its history too (restaurants/bars are Alibi, Clink etc.) and the catwalk, jail cells and exercise yard still exist. It’s a really lovely hotel so I was surprised to learn they welcome dogs. This is one of those places that welcomes dogs, not just tolerates them. It is super dog friendly – they even had homemade treats with the boys name on them in the room when we checked in. It was very hot in Boston this past weekend so it was great just to chill in the A/C for a few days. Archie was thinking he could get used to this!

That’s all for now….enjoy the summer!

    Thanks for checking in with your handsome duo! What a great summer you all are having! Extra points for scoring a hotel that loves dogs. Maybe you need to order a key lime pie for somepawdy!
