Daisy and Archie

We were lounging in the backyard of our cottage last night when we spotted eight little legs through the hedgerow.  Two of the cutest Jack Russell terriers had come to visit.

We checked out their ID tags and that's how we learned their names, Daisy and Archie.  It wasn't until later that Dad noticed that Daisy had a penis.   "Daisy has a dick," he exclaimed.  That's when the kids started calling her Daisy with a D.

Anyhow, we got the number from their tag.  804 Area Code.  Richmond, Virginia.  Summer dogs like us.   No answer when we called, so Sophie and Grace leashed Daisy and Archie so they couldn't continue on their way.  Fresh water and Milk Bones were served.

Eventually, we got ahold of the owners who were staying in a cottage just two blocks away.   Turns out that Daisy is actually Toby.   Daisy is their third dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.  Toby was just wearing Daisy's collar.  They all escaped when the kids left the door open.  Apparently it wasn't the first time.  And Alex, their 12-year-old owner, confided that Archie has been peeing in the cottage.   Their neighbor in the cottage across the street popped out to say they are very bad dogs.   We liked them very much.
