My pointy-eared prince






We've an evening tradition, my pointy-eared prince and I.

This is how it happens.

I hop into the bed -- and Archibald, ever at my heels, immediately follows suit. He pins me down -- as best he can with his wee princely paw -- and licks my face until I comply with his request for a back and behind-the-ears scratching. Back scratches are a most valuable currency in this home.

And then I give him a big smooch on his puppy cheek to say, that was very sweet, but now it's time for you to nap...and for me to do boring human things. Until the next night, between the approximate hours of 8 p.m. and 12 a.m. mountain time, that is.

  1. We have a French Bulldog too, his name is Watson and he never licks our faces. The only time he has licked a person was when my husband used to work at a restaurant he would come home and Watson would sit and lick his arms for 20 minutes or until we made him stop. He's a little weird, but we love him to pieces. I think Archibald is adorable!
