The next day, we went on a big walk awound Boston..Quincy mawket awea and the hawbow wif Agatha and Aggie's PL as toow guide, we leawned sooo much about the histowy of this gweat city and ouw countwy.it was fantastic

I couldn't wesist nipping into some of the stowes, hehehe

don't you feel like you'we in a histowy book?

flat Ewic and Flat me took time out to be silly too..not all about leawning, hehehehe

the duckies didn't look like they minded the cold, but we stawted feeling a nip in the aiw
we went to a wawm place and had pizza befowe going home and collapsing in ouw wawm ,soft beds

Ouw last day was bwisk and sunny, and we decided to go toow Agatha and Awchie's School HAWVAWD
(now you know the secwet to why they know so much)

They have a pawfect place in theiw nudnick mobile and wewe demosntwating how they get in and out

We awwived at Hawvawd Yawd and felt smawtew aweady just being thewe

Awchie led the way

Only the two of them wewe allowed in wif theiw pwopew IDs..the west of us didn't have them. (Awchie almost didn't get in the doow,he dwopped his ID and almost lost it) It's a little known fact, but bof Agatha and Awchie got eawly admission and a full scholawship to this august institootion..(Agatha got a spowts scholawship, and of couwse Awchie was awawded his fow his deep thinking)

they wan up and down the steps to keep theiw bwains shawp and awake befowe attacking theiw bagged official Hawvawd Lunch bags

They wanted to show us evewy pawt of theiw campuss

knowing that many of the Mommi's awe awt owiented , they showed off the Henwy Moowe sculptoowe that was modeld aftew them (pawsonally , I think he missed theiw essence)

Aftew we left the campuss,we walked awound and looked at othew intewesting stuff neaw the school

It's all vewy bootiful..but we hated the cwowds of toowists and buses so we went to quietew stweets

Mommi took this pictoowe fow those fwiends who awe NPW listenews and know the caw goowoos..this is theiw office in Hawvawd yawd
It was time fow ouw last lunch togethew befowe getting on the bus to go home...booo hoooooooooo

we wewe all sowt of sad
Awchie was soo exhaustewed fwom all that school stuff, he was cawwied up his staiws by his PL

we left wif many wondewful memowies and a detewmination to come back and see some mowe and especially to spend time wif ouw fantastic fwiends.
Thank you Agatha and Awchie and youw PLs fow being the most amazing hosts in the wowld and fow all the othew fwiends who made this such a memowable and stoopendous twip.

smoochie kisses

Asta! (and please read this to your Mommi),

You did it again! An amazing post!!!! The scenes in your Fall Harvest Book are fabulous! Mango and PeeWee were sure showin' off their physiques and graceful moves at their estate (Mango looks so light on his feet!) and such happy smiles. Do you 'spose Mango could pull us in a sleigh if we were to visit him in the winter? Wouldn't that be fun ... all bundled up in blankies with hot carob, all together! He's big enough to do it, isn't he? (Sorry. We digress. But your fantastic pictures just make us imagine being there! And since it's getting colder....)

Anyway, all those momas sure look like they were happy to be together, having fun. And in such beeyouteaful places!

You sure wiggled your little self into some interesting spots with all your flat friends, Asta. You undoubtedly all added some color to the Local Color. (You didn't chase the duckies in the harbor, did you? I know you love water, but....)

And what a brilliant last day! A tour of Harvard. WITH Aggie and Archie! Harvard alums! So ... do you think they could manage for our NinaGirl to get early admission and a full scholarship of her own? She's busy applying places right now. She's gonna want to go there when she sees these pictures. (We may not show her, or she may decide she wants to go outta-state afterall.) Maybe she'd be satisfied with just a lunchbag or one of those cool ID cards. On a Harvard lanyard. We'll ask Arch for his when it expires. So cool!!! (Thanks for the Christmas gift ideas!)

What an amazing trip and adventure! We want to thank you and your friends soooo much for capturing so much of it and sharing it with us. Even though we didn't get to go, in many ways it feels like we got to see and share some of the special time with all of you. We feel as tired (and happy) as Archie in his daddy's arms (what a sweet picture.)

Our list of "Places to Go" is getting longer.

Thanks to you.
Your sissie and bruvver, Fergi and Jake

Dexter said...

We listen to the NPR all the time here too! In fact we had to have stupid Oliver here because my brother went to VA to go to the wedding of one of his pals who actually is an NPR producer or director or some such.

You had a nice day to tour Harvard and of course most excellent tour guides.

Thanks for all the great photos and memories.


Sally Ann and Andy said...

What an amazing trip you had(Even your flat self). Mack went to Harvard also.

Gus said...

What a pawfectly wonderful trip you guys had. And the weather! We so admire Archie for doing such a bang up job on weather control!

Teka says she loves your new Rain Gear. It is a bit reminiscent of Mommi's suds protection outfit though. Did your talented Mommi remake her favorite from the trip just for you?

Ah...we hope you are all getting some good rest, and have rejuvenated yourselves back to round (or square) dogs, as the cases might be.

Oh Asta!!!

Oh my...that Henry statue looks like a bunch of noses!!!! Can you imagine what it must be like to stand there when the noses all get colds? You'd hafta have a beach towel not to get soaked...

Hawwvard looked amazing...I had NO IDEA that Aggie gets to do Earthdog as a sport there...that's totally cool!!! And that Archie...sooooooo smart!!!

I saw you mommie took a fab photo of a "Monkey Ball" tree...think it's called a horse chesnut in some finer circles...perhaps our monkey that I um did the surgery on might be interested...(HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!)

Love ya lotsest...


When's your DATE?

Have a great weekend!

Coucou !
Nous sommes de retour. Véronique est désolée d'avoir négligé ses amis de DWB....d'ailleurs elle a abandonné Farmville. Ca prend trop de temps....On va venir lire tes aventures plus souvent. Tu sais, la Maman de Véronique est à Budapest en vacances chez Zsofi !
Bisous, Faya

Sassy Kat said...

Great to see the photos part II of the trip. You certainly and your family have the neatest of trips.

Also, wow did you all sure give me the biggest surprise. Just as I was ready to head out you all loaded me up in the MFV and off we headed. We never did know how to keep thing simple did we?
Thanks to the gang, love all of you bunches and bunches!!
Check out the CCSI blog. I have a feeling Karl and Opus had their heads together for sure.

Deefor said...

Those pictures are great. You sure had some adventures. I didn't know all that stuff was in Massachusetts! Now I have to visit Mango.

My mom's been working a lot and not visiting bloggies! Yours looks so festive. Even the smilebox was special!

Joe Stains said...

It looks like a super fabulous trip for sure. I had no idea A&A go to Harvard, I am jealous! All the photos make it look so beautiful there.

Kousin Asta,

Super pics of Beantown! Boston is such a beautiful city and a gweat place to live. My mom really likes it there. And she is a Yankee fan!

I wasn't surprised to hear that Agatha and Archie go to Harvard. You can tell that they have superior intellects, especially Agatha. How many other doggies have their own bomb shelters?

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie
