    Alternate title: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly in Murphy’s World. I loved reading all of your comments (thank you, btw) on my 8-year blog birthday giveaway about what you’d like to see more and less of on CNC. There was definitely a mix (i.e. more food posts, fewer recipes, more product reviews, fewer sponsored posts, more CrossFit, less […]

    Hi, friends! I just wanted to share a quick update with you guys about Murphy. As you saw in this morning’s BarkBox post, he’s doing quite a bit better. Physically, he still has a way to go, but, personality-wise, he’s back to his old pug self (i.e. acting like we never feed him, obsessively sitting […]



    This post is sponsored by BarkBox. Look what arrived just in time for Murphy’s birthday! Our little puglet turned 6 years old on Sunday, so a BarkBox was the perfect way to celebrate. As you might remember, we LOVE BarkBox in our house. I’ve blogged about it a number of times in the past and […]

    Oh, poor Murphy. I don’t even know where to begin… Well, the past couple of days have been rough. We were stressed. We were scared. We cried. We felt totally heartbroken. And there were a number of moments when we thought it might be time to say goodbye to our beloved pug. After I wrote my first Murphy update, […]

    A huge THANK YOU to all of you who have sent well wishes and prayers for Murphy. The poor pug has had a rough few days, so we really appreciate it. Ok, let me back up a little and give you guys the whole story… Back in January, Murphy had an ear infection and then some […]
