Dexter was our first furbaby. It was love at first sight and it made us wonder why it had taken so long to add a dog to our family. We were smitten, so in love and totally devoted to this four legged, stinky and totally mischievous little pooch. Therefore it made so much sense after two years to add another adorable dog to our family!

We didn’t set off to try and find a matching one to Dexter, but when Archie cheekily trotted out of his pen towards us – the decision was made there and then….he was the one!

Dexter with his mini- me Archie
Archie adored Dexter from the start and Dexter adopted his role of big brother immediately. The bond between them was amazing – which made everything so much easier for us!

We often get asked if the boys are related. They are actually not related directly, but somewhere down the line they have the same grandparent!

They are both orange roan and have similar markings, however, Dexter has very soft silky fur, whereas Archie’s is courser and curlier!

Happy Birthday Archie – 6 years ago you looked like this!
Archie was 6 this week, which means we’ve had the pleasure of him in our family for almost that length of time.

Love them both dearly  – they have enhanced our lives for the better and I can only hope we’ve done the same for them ❤️❤️❤️
