Today is my boy Archie’s thirteenth birthday!
Steve the Mailman gave Archie an extra special treat today when he parked his truck right in the front of our house! It’s the first time he’s ever done that. Normally he parks down the street but not today. So, while Steve was out delivering the mail, Archie kept an eye on the truck. Usually Archie gets a real quick look (accompanied by a few barks) at the truck as Steve drives by. Today though, as soon as he saw the truck pull up, Archie sat very quietly, watching and waiting. He had a serious case of Border Collie concentration going on! Finally, when Steve came to the house to deliver our mail and then get in the truck, Archie went into action and got his bark on.
Steve told me he parked in front of our house because a dog that lives down the street attacked him recently. So I guess Archie may get to see the mail truck parked in front of our house more often.
Thank you, Steve the Mailman. Archie couldn’t have gotten a much better birthday gift. He’s one happy dog today!
