• It’s a Tough Life for This Dog

    September 15, 2010

    Poor Murphy. He lives a tough life.

    Murphy is often forced to do things that he doesn’t want to do, like walk by empty garbage cans on trash day. (They freak him out every time!)

    On our walks, he’s also forced to walk by The Donkey.

    Eeeeek! 8-O

    But, Murphy also gets to do fun things.

    Like play at the park.

    And chew sticks.

    And get lots of hugs and kisses from Mom.

    But, eventually, playtime at the park has to end.

    But, Mom, I don’t wanna leave! Wah.

    It’s a tough life for this dog.

    Off to dinner!

    I just read your donkey post to get the explanation behind the donkey. Too funny :) Clyde was afraid of round flat-ish things for a while, like frisbees! He used to growl at them and run from them, but now he’s ok. Dogs are so random!

    Murphy is one spoiled puppy- the best kind! We do the same with our pup.

    I recently discovered your blog and love it! I enjoy seeing your pics of Murphy and hearing about his “personality” traits. We have a puggle who shares many of the same traits. Murphy is adorable!

    OMG! You know I love when you post pics of your little puggy!

    I love that he’s freaked out by empty garbage cans… I don’t blame him for the donkey though… it is kinda creepy! haha!

    The pug in the Puppia drew me into your sight, I admit.

    Hello. My name is Heidi. I have a 5-year-old pug named Cubbie. I’m a pug addict.

    Your Murphy is beautiful.

    I found you via Rosey Rebecca.
