ARCHIE BRINDLETON IS THE OFFICIAL DOG OF HAPPY!
On January 8, 2013, Archibald Flubberford Brindleton was born with much fanfare to a litter of four by a sensitive mother and a powerful father. His culturally diverse background includes French birth parents, English nannies and Canadian adoptive parents. His glorious ears immediately set him apart from his three loving sisters and instantly launched his meteoric career as a world-famous male canine model and all around handsome burlyman.
Not one to rest on the laurels of a modelling career, and yearning for a more "funfilling" life (that included more naps and snacks as well) Archie began pursuing other interests that he felt would make the world a better, happier place for everyone: He is proud of his time spent as a certified St. John's Ambulance Therapy Dog and went on regular "Happy Heart Missions" to the Mount Hope Centre for Long-Term Care where he likes to put a little happy in the hearts of it's many residents. He has had to retire from that temporarily, but by 2016, he will resume therapy dog HappyHeartMissions in some form or another.
On Mondays, he posts his now famous ASK ARCHIE advice column and helps as many of his friends as he can with advice, insights and fun stories to lift the spirit.
His THINKINGTHOUGHTS FROM MY BRAINMELON comments are also posted regularly (but NOT on a scheduled day) in which Archie explores and reflects on the world around him and his insights on how we might all find and share more 'Happy" in our lives.
A more recent feature of his page is Archie's pragmatic STUFF THAT HELPS posts, where Archie will talk in detail about one of the many interesting foods, products or tips that he employs to help keep him healthier and happier, in body, mind, and of course, happy heart.
In August of 2014 he launched ARCHIE BRINDLETON'S DOOP DEE DOOP TROOP, named after the song he likes to sing while exploring park spaces and points of interest all over his city and beyond! In this special gallery, he posts pictures of his puppypals from all over the world in interesting places with some background on both the puppy and the landmark location. If you'd like to join the DOOP DEE DOOP TROOP, look for the gallery and click on the logo page to find out more!
FUN FACT: At only seven months of age (4 people years) and after extensive DNA testing by several labs from around the globe, it was confirmed that, in fact, Archie is made almost entirely out of Awesome.
Currently his biggest project is the pursuit of visiting, exploring and rating every single official park space in his home town of London, Ontario. The list from the Parks and Recreation Department included 432 addresses and will likely be longer by the time he finishes his quest. As of summer 2015, he has been to over 360 parks, and you can find his ratings and pictures in the FaceBook gallery called "PARKS I HAVE BEEN TO!"
On May 1 2014, his baby sisterperson, Mirabelle Roseblossom Merriweather was born and only a few short months after that, she moved in with her big brother to be his constant companion and source of great love.
