My name is Archibald RazzMaTazz. But my friends call me Archie. I am a Newfoundland dog. I am a very lucky dog because I have a huge family who loves me. My family lives at Casa Pacifica in Camarillo, California. My family includes a LOT of kids, who I love so much!
I have a really important job in my family. I am in charge of helping my kids feel better. Sometimes, they have a bad day because their other families haven't been very nice to them. A lot of the kids talk to me about it because I am a very good listener and I never interrupt, except to lick their faces sometimes. They love that and it makes them laugh. Mostly, my kids just like having me around. They say it makes them happy. They know that I am their dog and I love them very much, no matter what they do.
Some kids spend a lot more time with me than others, and I have told my assistant about them. She's written about some of these kids on my website and you should read their stories. Even though some of them don't live at Casa Pacifica anymore, I still love them! Sometimes, they come to visit me and that makes me so happy! If you want to learn more about what I do, read about a day in my life at my web site: Archie's Web Site
