Meet Archie, the newest member of our family.
We are truly blessed to have this opportunity to adopt this handsome looking Golden Retriever, named Ti (for Tiberius). This literally came out of the blue from a Golden rescue service, from which we obtained Dave six years ago. We tentatively plan to change his name to Archie.
Archie is a two -year old male and loves to be around other dogs and people, so that will fit in well with our plans to eventually get a second hound in our home later in the year. Archie is very active, as one might expect of a two-year old, and he loves to go on long walks. That's a good thing because both Mrs. Fritz and I like to get our exercise via dog walks.
Archie's owner died several months ago and the owner's spouse couldn't keep him, so he was given up for adoption to our rescue service. They placed Archie in a foster home, along with a German Shepherd. This did not work out very well as the German Shepherd was too aggressive. So Archie was moved to a second foster home, where the foster family already had two Labradors. We are told that all three hounds got along famously. Archie loves to be with other dogs.
Archie was probably a bit traumatized by all of these changes in his life. We were told that he used to carry around one of his former owner's shoes in his mouth, after the owner died. We plan to give him lots of love, tons of play time, and many long walks and hopefully he will know that his journey is over and that he is finally at "home". We sort of feel that the Higher Power intervened to bring this happy go lucky dog into our home. We are all very excited here in Hesse Seewald. Life works in mysterious ways sometimes. For that we are grateful.
