Archie was lonely.  There wasn't anyone to play with.  He longed for someone to throw a ball that he could catch.  He just wanted to be a dog with a friend.  Then the family promised him a surprise.  He waited all day but when they came back, nothing seemed to be for him.  There was a baby and he was all the family paid attention to now.  Archie was lonelier than ever.  But then he found that sometimes friendship happens when you're least expecting it.
