    Murphy has a lot of nicknames:

    • Turd Ferguson (or just “Turd” for short)
    • Gremlin
    • Piranha
    • Brickhead (Mal calls him this)
    • Lazy Pants McGee

    Today, he’s been Lazy Pants McGee all day long.


    Murphy even slept while sitting in my lap. Well, sorta.



    Mid-morning, my stomach started to grumble, so I made half of wrap with Barney Butter and a sprinkle of ground flaxseed meal spread inside. It kept my stomach quiet until lunchtime.



    For lunch, I enjoyed an arugula salad with Buffalo Tofu and Atheno’s tomato & basil feta crumbles on top. I’m not going to lie, it was quite amazing.


    I also had a container of French vanilla yogurt.


    And, of course, I enjoyed a few Cherry-Dark Chocolate Cookies after lunch. I couldn’t help myself! Plus, Cookie Friday is less than 24 hours away. I guess I’m just practicing for game day! πŸ˜‰

    Time to take the pug for his long walk of the day!

    See ya! 😎

    It must be hard being Murphy! :) He’s cute. I love the photos. I send them to my BF who wants us to get a pug. :)


    Tina July 15, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    I think celebrating cookie friday a little early sounds like a great thing to do.


    Jessica @ How Sweet July 15, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Those nicknames are too funny…lol.


    Emily B July 15, 2010 at 1:25 pm

    My cat Neci is Neci Pieces or Killer for biting my face to the point of having to go to the emergency room!


    Kacy July 15, 2010 at 1:34 pm

    I want a doggie so bad! Murphy looks so cute cuddled up in your arms!


    Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) July 15, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    Looks like a delicious day so far! Enjoy your walk!


    allison @ livingoneday July 15, 2010 at 1:37 pm

    Maura July 15, 2010 at 1:43 pm

    Awww, it makes me want to curl up right now!! Wah..Wah…


    Evan Thomas July 15, 2010 at 1:48 pm

    Around here we call my dog “lil’ shit” πŸ˜‰ And he responds!


    Heather July 15, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Murphy looks seriously too cute curled up in your lap, what a life he leads!


    Estela @ Weekly Bite July 15, 2010 at 1:49 pm

    Love the nicknames! “Gremlin” is my favorite :)


    Wendy (Give Love Create Happiness) July 15, 2010 at 1:52 pm

    Have a great walk with Lazy Pants McGee! πŸ˜€


    sweetersalt July 15, 2010 at 1:54 pm

    My pup Franklin is “Mr. F” Anyone else watch “Arrested Development?” We say it in the “Mr. F voice” too!


    Jenna July 15, 2010 at 1:55 pm

    What a life, huh? My little pug is crazy about 90% of the time and then the other 10% is an angel and sleeps the day away.


    Cynthia (It All Changes) July 15, 2010 at 1:57 pm

    He leads such a tortured life laying in momma’s arms all day. So cute.


    Megan July 15, 2010 at 1:58 pm

    I forgot about cookie friday! I am soo excited to treat myself to a nice delicious cookie!


    meemsnyc July 15, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    sounds delicious!


    Jules July 15, 2010 at 2:04 pm

    WOW! I just came across your FANTASTIC blog. Your story rings true to mine…thanks for all the motivation! Now, I’ll be sure to check in each & every day! :)


    Heather @ Side of Sneakers July 15, 2010 at 2:05 pm

    Haha I call my husband Turd McFurgerson… wonder if he & Murhpy share any qualities πŸ˜‰


    Jenn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) July 15, 2010 at 2:11 pm

    Yum, Buffalo tofu sounds sooo good!



    Maria @ Oh Healthy Day July 15, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    The wrap sounds yummy! What kind of wraps do you use? I just had a great experience with Ezekiel wraps, but its great to have options.


    Jessica July 15, 2010 at 2:38 pm

    I call my basset Shorty McGee. It’s funny how many nicknames are easily made up when your pet can’t protest them!


    Nerissa July 15, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    Murphy looks like a sea lion sleeping on your lap like that!…and that salad does look really good. I think I’ll be whipping one up for lunch myself!


    Kelly July 15, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    I feel like I would never get any work done with Murphy wandering around. He looks so cute sleeping on you.


    Krystina July 15, 2010 at 2:59 pm

    Haha, brickhead. Love it!


    Kelly July 15, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    Aw! Poor Murphy is zonked! That is my Rascal every day! He also likes to sleep on my lap like he’s a 5 lb. Yorky instead of a 19 lb. Daschund. His nicknames are:
    1. Little Man
    2. Stink Monkey
    3. Grump Bucket


    Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine July 15, 2010 at 3:09 pm

    Cookie friday might be my excuse to make cookies tomorrow. πŸ˜‰


    Jessica @ Rawtumn July 15, 2010 at 3:38 pm

    Aww, Murphy is the cutest! Hope you both enjoyed your walk together! =D


    Jill@MySoCalledHealthLife July 15, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    I’m pretty positive I would read a Murphy only blog. Haha

    Also stonyfield yogurt just rocks my face off. I’m obsessed with the lemon flavor.


    Liz @ Tip Top Shape July 15, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    That salad looks delicious! I liked all your different names for Murphy! Particularly Mal’s “brickhead”, haha.


    Lynn (The Actors Diet) July 15, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    it’s so weird how my dog can be a lazy bones at times – he’s a jack russell so usually whenever everyone else sees him he’s freaking out.


    Stacey @ Tipping the (Kitchen!) Scales July 15, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    Aww, isn’t Murphy just the cutest! Your salad does look pretty delicious with the arugula, tofu and cheese – can’t go wrong!


    Mary @ Bites and Bliss July 15, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    D’awwwe that picture of him on your lap is so cute. :)


    Amy @ Amy Starts to Run July 15, 2010 at 4:28 pm

    Our dog is named Shea, and we come up with clever nick names for her all the time.
    When she breaks up fights between the cats, she’s “Shea-rif”
    When she wakes me up in the morning its a “Shea-ke up”
    When we’re singing a Steve Perry song to her its “Oh Shea-dog, you’re all alone…”
    We also refer to her as Bluppy (she’s a black puppy) or Blog (black dog, she’s older now)
    Murphy aka Lazy Pants McGee is adorable!


    Tina July 15, 2010 at 4:59 pm
    Colleen July 15, 2010 at 5:08 pm

    I love that feta cheese w/ 1 can black beans, 1 can shoepeg corn, 1/4c sugar, 1/4c EVOO, 1/4c cider vinegar, diced scallions all mixed together and served w/ Scoops. The best dip in the whole wide world. It’s even better the next day.


    Renee July 15, 2010 at 5:31 pm

    I must try your cookie recipe and the buffalo tofu! Yum!


    Tina July 15, 2010 at 5:39 pm

    @Nerissa: LOL! Mal and I always say he looks like a harp seal!


    Brittany @ A Healthy Slice of Life July 15, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    I love how snuggly Murphy is… I wish Koda would be more snuggly… but she only gets that way when she’s worn out :)

    PS- buffalo tofu looks good… and I don’t even ever make tofu!


    Lisa (bakebikeblog) July 15, 2010 at 5:50 pm

    haha oh to have a dog’s life hey!!!!


    Wei-Wei July 15, 2010 at 8:13 pm

    Aww, what a dog’s life πŸ˜€ Murphy is just too adorable. :)



    Hannah July 15, 2010 at 10:53 pm

    What do flaxseeds taste like? I saw them preground at the shops today – is that how you buy them? Any help much appreciated :)


    Emilyeatsclean July 15, 2010 at 10:59 pm

    Murphy is living the good life!! :)


    Alisa July 16, 2010 at 12:55 pm

    I heart Murphy! My bestfriend had a dog like that and how he snores! :)
