an emerging series...

It all started innocently enough...
I had some old books, 
I wrapped them with some neutral cloth

bound, bundled, swaddled, crossed

  and set them out as gifts...

thinking about knowledge and place...

the series emerged...

a book bound with various materials
(here its a very long kikuyu runner)

and then set out

accompanied on insta with a philosophic musing

(of sorts)

so now I'm binding books an all manner of ways with all manner of things...

I'm even taking books with me

to seize a bound book moment

why not drop over to my insta space
to check out the offerings

The Adventures of EJ and Archie...

won't you please all say g'day to the newest member of our household


or - to be more exact
(Jack Russell Terror.... yes you read that right... TERROR) 

Archie is EJ's very first fur baby 
(don't you love the name she has given him?)
what a delightful
(and delightfully WICKED)
little man he is

Archie is a Jack Russell Terrier (JRT) 
he is now almost 12 weeks old and he joined our gang just over a week ago
after almost a year searching for
just. the. right. mini-hound.

WHAT and action-packed time he has had already!

EJ & Archie at Parkrun 

EJ & Archie at hockey

(hey Archie - where's EJ?)

EJ & Archie at soccer

EJ & Archie at cross country


I think you can see why it took us a while 
to find just the right mini hound for our maxi sport grrrrrrrrl

and how perfect the breed choice is...

EJ is the human version of a Jack Russell!

But its not all sport sport sport sport sport 

a grrrrrrl has to feed and clean and train her fur-baby

so far Archie has learned his name and to come on command
he has learned to sit 
(including for his meals - without prompts either -- good boy!)

he has learned to travel and settle quietly in his HUGE crate
(he gets to sleep beside the grrrl child in his crate --- lucky boy!)

he has learned that balls at WONDERFUL fun
EJ is now teaching him to fetch and return items 
and to play soccer 
with a full sized football 
(good grief !!!!!!!!)

and he has also learned to snuggle for lovely laps.... 

sweet dreams
