Murphy's musings

Can you believe it?? It's not snowing today. We, me and the Bugsadoodle, even got to go for a walk around tha lake. Mommy used this as a training opportunity for that little Bugs. See even though hims has been with us for two months now, the weather has not been good enough to work on hims training and walking on tha leash etiquette. So today hims got a lot of learning on how to walk like a good puppy on tha leash. It was really hard for Bugs to. There was a lot of distractions for that little puppy. Peoples was walking thems dogs and the little ones wanted to bark and growl at us. At first Bugs barked back but after awhile hims got the idea that it wasn't polite to bark at other dogs. Of cours me, the Murphster, was a very, very good dog and set a really good example for Bugs.

But now let me get the the really important stuff. Today Mommy and Daddy went shopping and bought us dogs some new dog treats. Thems bought us some beef jerky nuggets and boy is thems good stuff. Mommy said it was just as cheap to buy the jerky for us as it was to buy that ole ground meal treats. Me has to tell you, if you give me and Bugs a choice, we'd take the jerky any day. Of course we would never, ever turn down the ground meal dog treats either. No sense looking a gift treat in the mouth.

Anyway, there is a problem. See jerky is human food that Mommy thought to substitute for us dogs and since it's human food Daddy wants to eat it too. Hims thinks it would be a good snack for a Daddy..............NOT! This is for us puppies and we never, ever share our food with humans. That's their job, to share tha food with us. Me and Bugs is a teeny bit worried that Daddy might like our treats too much and eat them all and where would that leave us? Treatless is where.



7 weekends of snow

Mommy said if it's tha weekend then it must be snowing and hers is right. This is tha 7th weekend in a row there's been snow falling when we gets up in tha morning. Eberybody has tha cabin fever but mostly it's us dogs cause Mommy and Daddy gets out to go to work during tha week. And poor Bugs is suffering tha worst cause hims has to stay caged up cause of hims getting fixed on Thursday.

Me still don't know what was wrong with him that had to be fixed him seemed perfectly fine to me. Me did notice that getting fixed has something to do with losing tha family jewels cause when Bugs came home hims was gone too!!! Me hates to tell that little Doodlebug but when them takes the family jewels to fix them ya don't get them back. Mine has been out to be fixed for almost a year now and me hasn't heard a word on when them are going to be returned in good working order. Family jewels must be awfully hard to fix when thems gets broken.

Guess me will go take a nap, there's not much else to do around here today.



Two Weeks

We've had this little doodlebug for two weeks now and to tell you tha truth sometimes it feels like 2 years. Me loves having a little bubba (that's how thems calls brothers in TX) cause me has someone to play with but other times it's a pain in tha neck. Bugs wants to have all my toys and bones no matter what hims already has to play with. Okay so maybe me wants to have all hime toys and bones too but that's different. Me is the older puppy and should have all of tha toys and bones. It's only fair don't ya think? AND to make matters worse, Mommy won't let me have hims little stuffed toys cause hers says me will tear them up, and me would too. In fact me did get hold of Bugs little red lobster toy and runned outside with it and tore all of the stuffings out and then played keep away from Bugs.

Last night that little Bugs was playing with one of me toys and when me tried to take it away from him Mommy and Daddy gots mad and made me go to time out in me crate. Do you know what that little poopy head puppy did? Hims pranced all around me crate and stucked hims tongue out at me and made faces cause me was in the crate and hims was out. This is not fair! Just because me does that to him during the day while our peoples is gone to work don't mean hims can do it to me when me is in time out!

Most of tha time though it is fun, fun, fun to have that little guy around. We run in and out of that doggie door all of tha day when hims is loose from his crate. And we plays keep the kong for the bugs too. That's one of me favorite games cause hims isn't as fast as me and so hims can't catch me and get tha kong. Me didn't realize how lonely me was until hims came so me guesses it will be okay if hims wants to take me toys sometimes. Me really loves Bugs a lot and is happy hims is here.
